Tip 1 – Clear Your Space
Cleaning a room effectively whilst it is cluttered with furniture, fixtures and a multitude of accessories can be extremely tricky and frustrating. That’s why it’s advisable to clear each room that is due for cleaning out completely, to ensure you can reach every nook and cranny with your cloth, duster and spray!
Boxing items up can allow you to easily move them in and out of a room in an organised fashion. For larger-scale cleaning jobs or renovations, you may wish to put items into storage for the duration of the task, in which case you can always find affordable storage solutions from Incredible Bulk Storage!
Tip 2 – Coffee Filter Cleaners
Okay, this one is going to sound a little odd, but hear us out. Using coffee filters to clean windows is actually super-effective. Not only are they cheaper, but the lint-free material won’t leave any streaks on your newly-cleaned glass. So, you could save a pretty penny, and cut down on the workload too!
Tip 3 – Baking Soda in the Microwave
Using baking soda to clean out a microwave can make the task much easier to handle. Simply add some water and baking soda to a microwavable container and heat until the water boils. The solution will eliminate old food smells while loosening grime left on the sides of your microwave, making it easier wipe clean.
This simple but incredibly effective tip has been used for years!

Tip 4 – Goodbye, Stubborn Oven Stains!
Some people use a pumice stone to grind their feet down and keep them soft. Frankly that terrifies us, but the stone can also come in pretty handy for cleaning those stubborn areas of the oven. Wet the stone and scrub any residue from meals of the past. From what we’ve heard, it’s easier to clear away the stains with a pumice stone than any other alternative.
Tip 5 – Lemony Fresh
What is it about lemons that make things smell so clean and fresh? We don’t know, but we like it and this handy tip is great for freshening up bathroom tiles; simply mix half of a cup of olive oil with the zest of two lemons over a low heat. Give the mixture 10 minutes and then remove the mixture and let cool. Next, you can use it in the bathroom to keep tiles clean and shiny, and to prevent mold and mildew from forming in the grout.
