3 Affordable Cleaning Tips To Invigorate Your Home

The benefits of a clean home should be evident, and it doesn't matter if you are a homeowner, owner-occupier, landlord or tenant, you want your property to be as clean as possible. Of course, if you're a landlord looking to let your property, a homeowner looking to sell their home, or even a tenant looking to reclaim their deposit, a clean property is imperative.

Of course, cleaning can take a lot of time and effort. The cleaning process can also be expensive. If you lack time, you can hire professional cleaners. You can enjoy a gleaming property, but you'll spend a lot of money to achieve this outcome.

If you decide to carry out the cleaning process yourself, there is a lot of equipment and material to help. However, these are also expensive, so you may find yourself spending a lot of money, even when you are committed to cleaning the property yourself.

Thankfully, there are ways you can significantly improve the cleaning process without breaking the bank.

"No matter whether you are a landlord, tenant or homeowner, a clean home is often a happy home," said Thomas Morris Sawtry Branch Manager Tom Mollett. "When you need to impress others, it is vital your home is as clean as possible, reaching showroom standards. We are pleased to say we have helped many landlords, tenants and homeowners present their property effectively, and if you need guidance on how to clean your home affordably, please get in touch."

Our three affordable cleaning tips to invigorate your home are:

  1. Unleash the power of baking soda and vinegar
  2. The citrus power of lemon packs a punch
  3. Old toothbrushes are a vital tool against dirt and grime

Unleash the power of baking soda and vinegar

If you need cleaning materials in a hurry, or you don't want to spend a lot of money on the cleaning process, you must make the most of everyday household items. The combination of baking soda and vinegar can be unleashed throughout your property, severely impacting the appearance of the home.

The kitchen is a vital room when it comes to creating a good impression, but of course, the kitchen is often one of the messiest rooms in the house. The kitchen sink is a notoriously dirty area, and some people find it difficult to clean.

If you need to clear the drain, or you want the silver to shine and sparkle, mix a cup of baking soda with two cups of vinegar. Pouring this down your drain, and then waiting a few minutes before washing boiling water down will have a significant impact on the sink area, keeping it free of clogs.

You'll also find the baking soda and vinegar concoction is tremendous at cleaning a dirty and grimy oven. The oven is one area of the kitchen few people enjoy cleaning, but this mixture gives a lot of power for your elbow grease!

You can even use this combination to prevent mildew from gathering in your washing machine. If you want to keep your clothes smelling fresh, you must keep your washing machine in excellent condition, and this mixture works well and fast.

The citrus power of lemon packs a punch

Lemon juice can be quite sharp, and it works efficiently during the cleaning process. If you want to invigorate your chopping board, give them a scrub with a lemon. This step removes stains and will make your chopping board smell nicer.

Another way to utilise the power of lemon is to mix a few drops of lemon juice with water, and then put the mixture into the microwave. Let this mixture run for a few minutes, and then your microwave can be cleaned with a quick wipe.

Old toothbrushes are a vital tool against dirt and grime

If you struggle to clean some areas of your home, you need the right tool. An old toothbrush helps you get into nooks and crannies, scrubbing down areas and giving new life to grouting and faucets. Make sure you rinse the toothbrush in boiling water, and then you have a great asset to use in the cleaning process.
