Maintaining a clean home is one of the top priorities of every home owner or tenant. There are a lot of reasons for this. On one hand, a clean house or flat speak highly of your ability to function well in your private as well as in your public life. However, a clean home is a sure means to maintain the health of your family.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know how to clean a house. You arm yourself with rubber gloves, a sponge pad and a detergent and the rest is achieved through trial and error. Or if your personal schedule does not allow for such a thing, you can always hire professionals to do the work for you. I have booked several cleaning WC1 teams a couple of times, when I needed my home prepared for a couple of parties, but had no time to do this.
Nevertheless, if you do have the time, but don't have a sprawling budget to buy the best detergents on the market, why not go green. You won't need much. For instance, baking soda seems to be able to perform all kinds of miracles on working surfaces and appliances. Let's take the microwave oven as an example.
Even if there are not visible stains inside the microwave, the inside surfaces are coated with grease, which is most inconvenient to clean. With baking soda the solution is easy. Place a bowl or glass of water mixed with three to five tablespoons of soda and set the microwave to its highest temperature so that the mixture evaporates. Cleaning WC1 teams advise that the duration should be ten minutes so that the grease and stains really do loosen up. Afterwards, all you need to do is wipe it with a dry clean cloth and be done with it. No detergents. No chemicals, which is ideal considering that you're using the microwave to prepare food.
A thick paste made of baking soda and a dash of water is a powerful tool against stains as well as scuff marks. It can be used on work tops, carpets and even fabrics. On top of all this, baking soda help you combat even the most persistent odours from carpets and fridges.
Easy and affordable.
