These small tips will keep your home clean and help you save money!
Synthetic sponges and kitchen cloths are handy, but after a few uses they can start to smell. Rather than tossing them out, fill your sink with water, add a cup of bleach and soak them. That kills bacteria, gives the sponges a fresh scent and cleans your sink at the same time.
Use mild dish soap and water to clean most areas of your home―floors, counters, bathrooms, you name it! Harsher cleaning products aren’t always needed.
Swap paper towels and spray products for a microfiber duster. It’s reusable and effective. Just toss it in the washing machine to clean it.
Because so many products are concentrated now, be sure to follow label directions regarding the amount of detergent and other products to use. If you overdo it, you could harm clothes.
Implementing a no-shoes rule cuts down on the amount of dirt tracked through your home and can prolong the life of your floors and rugs. It also can make your home safer, since soles can carry more bacteria than a toilet seat.
