10 General Cleaning Hacks for around the home.

I have rounded up some of my favourite cleaning tips for you to help keep your home extra clean and pristine. Some of these are so easy and simple to do and will literally take no time at all.

1 – Cleaning cloths and sponges really do harbour germs.  My tip is to pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes to kill all those nasty germs.

2 – Use salt to clean the iron plate on your iron. Pour some salt onto a tea towel or old cloth and iron over this without the steam option this will help release any sticky patches or dirt.

3 – The best way to clean your windows is the old-fashioned way with a newspaper and white wine vinegar.

4 – Pop on you rubber cleaning gloves and dampen one of these and then you pick up stray pet hair from Cats and Dogs.

5 – Put the kids plastic toys in the dishwasher to get them germ free.

6 – Remove hard water stains with Lemons, cut a lemon in half give the stain a good rub, leave for a while and then rinse with warm water.

8 – Never leave your toothbrush near the toilet as when flushed the germs will jump up and can land on your brush…. Keep as far away as you can. Toothbrushes are full of bacteria from daily usage to keep them clean you can wash them with mouthwash or add a few drops of white wine vinegar to a glass and sit your toothbrush in it for around 15 minutes. White wine vinegar is a natural cleaner.

9 – When cleaning your make up brushes, got a bowl and add boiling water and a small squirt of your shampoo and then let them swirl around for a while.  You don’t want all the bacteria being spread all over your face so try to make this a weekly job.

10 – To get your bath towels nice and fluffy put a big heaped spoonful of bicarbonate of soda into the washing machine try or drum and then put on a hot wash. This will help bring your towels back to life and will keep them nice and fluffy.

Toilet brushes some of us love 💖 and some of us hate 😩But I only use silicone ones and this is why……..This one is in the prime day offeramzn.to/3Lrn0oY.

This helps prevent the growth of mould, mildew, and bacteria, making it more sanitary.2️⃣ Easier to Clean: The smooth surface of silicone brushes makes them easier to rinse off and clean, ensuring that debris and bacteria are not trapped in bristles.3️⃣ Quick Drying: Silicone brushes dry faster than traditional brushes, reducing the moisture environment that bacteria need to thrive.4️⃣ Durability: Silicone brushes are more durable and less likely to wear out or deform, maintaining their effectiveness and hygiene over time.5️⃣ Less Splashback: The design of silicone brushes often leads to less water splashing back during use, which keeps the surrounding area cleaner. ...
