Take a read to find out how you can keep to your budget with your spring clean this year!
Steam Clean Ovens & Microwaves
A quick and simple way to keep your oven sparkling is to steam clean it. All you have to do is put some white vinegar into a pot of water, along with any of your favourite oils (we recommend vanilla), turn up the heat and wait for the magic to happen! Steam cleaning your oven and microwave can not only lift dirt residue and food stains, but it can also help to reduce the time you spend scrubbing. This completely natural cleaning routine also reduces the need for harsh chemicals which can actually damage and wear away the inside of your oven and microwave.
Lemon Solves All
Whether you’re looking for a chemical to bleach your floors or provide a truly in-depth clean, turn to the natural properties of lemon. Lemon juice can be used on almost any kind of material without causing damage, despite the acidity of the fruit, and it is especially efficient on stainless steel. In addition to this, you can be certain that your kitchen will remain fresh-smelling at all times.
Cola Over Bleach
Bit of a trend here, right? This interesting technique isn’t just an old wives tale – it actually works! Using cola (whether the branded Coca Cola or a supermarket’s ‘own-brand’ version) can ensure that your toilet bowl is sparkling clean. It is regularly used on roads after an accident to clear away any oil left behind, and it truly does provide a cheap spring clean option for you to use. Don’t believe us? Why not try it yourself!
Don’t Forget The Shower Head
All parts of your home should be scrubbed and shining during a spring clean, but don’t forget the shower head! Cleaning your shower head while on a budget is simple, and it doesn’t require any excessive forms of bleach or other dangerous chemicals. All you have to do is fill up a plastic sandwich bag with a little baking soda and white vinegar (or any other kind of vinegar you can get your hands on if you don’t have any white vinegar lying around), place the shower head in the bag, tie it up and leave it to fizz away for a few hours. When you pull it back out, your shower head should look brand new!
There are a number of different ways that you can ensure your home is sparkling clean this spring without having to break the bank. Utilise the materials around you and turn to holistic cleaning methods in order to truly get the most bang for your buck.
