Cheap Ways to Do House Cleaning
House cleaning is, for the vast majority of the people out there, something that simply has to be done. Most of us don’t actually like it – and most of us would give anything not to have to do it. But, in the end, knowing that our comfort, wellbeing and even health are depending on the cleanliness of our homes pushes us to doing what has to be done.House cleaning doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, cleaning the home can be as inexpensive as you want it to be. Sure, there are lots of pricy cleaning products on the market, but sometimes, items you most likely have in your household can be successfully used in cleaning too. What are the best cheap ways to do this and to still get a sparkly clean home? Here are some of the best tips we have gathered along the way. 1) Cooking OilCooking oil may not feel like the very best choice when it comes to cleaning things around your home, but the truth is that it can be an excellent stain remover for marble surfaces. Dust the surfaces lightly and then apply a bit of oil on a cloth. Gently rub the stained areas with this cloth until the stains are removed. 2) White vinegarWhite vinegar is absolutely amazing when it comes to household cleaning. You can use it to clean the tiles, the computer mouse, the piano keys, the water stains on the furniture, the ballpoint stains on the tables, the refrigerator, carpet stains and, basically, almost every single item in your household (except for those that forbid you to use very acidic products on them). Furthermore, white vinegar is great for removing the nasty smells from the refrigerator and it can also be used in the washing machine to remove the mold odour that sometimes gathers in machines that are not properly washed. White vinegar can also help you conceal the small scratches in the furniture and it can help you restore the “life” in your carpets, brickwork, panels and even leather. 3) Baking SodaIf there’s something else that can get as close to “perfection” as white vinegar when it comes to the number of uses it can have, then that is baking soda. This “miracle powder” is amazing when you want to clean the oven, for example (use a solution of baking soda and water and apply it with a spray bottle on the entire inside surface of your oven). Use a slightly damp sponge and a bit of baking soda on it to clean the microwave as well. Even more than that, you can refresh the sponges that smell stale by soaking them in water and baking soda. Other uses of baking soda include cleaning silverware, coffee pots, tea pots, furniture, removing oil stains and even cars. 4) Coconut oil Coconut oil has been debated as a nutritional wonder for quite some time now. In between being an “unhealthy product” and being a “very healthy one”, coconut oil is still undoubtedly wonderful to use as a moisturizer for the skin, lips and hair, as well as a great cleaning product too. Yes, that’s right – coconut oil can help you clean the carpets (especially when mixed with a bit of baking soda), to remove chewing gum (even from hair, but from household products too) and to clean shower scum as well. As you can see, there are many products you probably never knew that they could be so amazing when it comes to housecleaning. So, next time you run out of your favorite cleaners, do call for the help of these great kitchen products everyone has in their homes.
