At Mrs Bucket, we pride ourselves on providing top quality, professional cleaning services to our customers. Whilst hiring a cleaning company is recommended to keep your home clean and hygienic, there’s also some tings you can do yourself around the house to make your home a germ-free zone. These are our top cleaning tips…
Get rid of the J-Cloth …Forever: Use microfiber cloths instead. When wet, they sanitize and clean floors, counters, glass and tile, and eliminate the need for other cleaning products. They’re reusable (machine-wash, hang to dry) and cost about £3 for a two-pack.
Do Dishwasher Duty: Once a week, shake baking soda on a damp microfiber and wipe around the machine’s edges to remove stuck-on food or stains. To clean the inside, run an empty cycle with Dishwasher Magic, a product designed to kill bacteria like E.coli. “During cold and flu season, add a quarter-cup of bleach to the regular dish cycle to kill bacteria,” The dishes will be safe and sanitized after the rinse cycle is finished.
Sanitize the Sink: It’s hard to believe, but your dirty kitchen sink has more bacteria than your toilet seat. To disinfect, clean your sink with fairy liquid and water first, then spray a mist of vinegar followed by a mist of hydrogen peroxide, and let air-dry. (Don’t mix the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide together—spray one after the other.) If your sink is stainless steel, make it sparkle afterward by putting a few drops of mineral oil on a soft microfiber cloth and buff in. This prevents water buildup, which deters mold and keeps the sink looking clean longer
A Quick and easy way to clean the microwave is to place a handful of wet paper towels inside and run it on High for 3-5 minutes. You don’t need a science lesson to know that the steam from the towels will soften the grime. Once the paper towels cool down, use them to wipe the oven’s interior.
