Are You Stressed About the Products Needed to Clean Your Home?
November 7, 2019
Do you know which products are best for the surfaces in your home? We’ll get you started:
While cleaning granite, make sure to leave ammonia, vinegar or lemon cleaners off of your product list. These options can be very acidic and may eat away at the surface over time. Instead, use warm water and dish soap for general cleaning, or do some research on specific granite cleaners and choose the one that fits your home best. It can also be helpful to wipe down your counters daily with warm water to reduce the amount of work needed when it’s time for a deep cleaning.
Your beautiful hardwood floors sometimes require special attention for cleaning. First, you should sweep or vacuum your floors to get any excess dirt, dust or debris out of the way. For some homeowners, this may be enough. For a deeper cleaning, try using a damp microfiber mop to remove any remaining dirt. The microfiber will hold onto less moisture compared to a traditional mop, reducing the possibility of saturating the wood. However, keep in mind that your hardwood floor may have a specific finish, meaning you should seek information on specialized products and methods for cleaning before jumping into your task.
Windows can be cleaned with a variety of products, but if you’re looking for a natural solution, a mixture of vinegar and water can be used. No matter what you choose, make sure to wipe and dry the windows right away to avoid any streaks. And, although using newspapers to wipe your windows is a popular, eco-friendly method to try, avoid wiping your windows with magazines, junk mail or book pages. Each of these items may use a different type of ink or paper, which can damage your windows.
