When it comes to cleaning, the battle never ends. There are millions of cleaning agents available in stores everywhere in Vancouver and everyone seems to have their preference, but what if there was a product that stood up next to name brand products for a fraction of the price?
Well, there is. Hydrogen Peroxide. Its cheap, effective and can go further than you think! With our house cleaning Vancouver company, we make sure to use this whenever possible. All you need is an empty spray bottle and a dream.
Here are five places you should consider replacing your name brand with hydrogen peroxide:
1. The bathtub grout. Considering that it’s the main place we go to clean ourselves, it actually surprises most British Columbia residents when they find out that the bathtub is one of dirtiest places in our homes. Excess moisture, soap grime, and left over body hair plagues the grout. When you go to clean the bathtub, make sure that it’s dry and spray hydrogen peroxide around the entire tub. Let it sit and bubble and once it has finished reacting, break out the tooth brush or hand brush and scrub away that fifth stain.
2. Grandma’s brownie stain. Baking is a great way to keep old memories and traditions alive but it becomes a problem when those traditions leave crud and crust around baking dishes and pans. Solution? Combine hydrogen peroxide with a little baking soda, then apply it as a paste on the pans. Walk away for a few minutes, maybe even attend to some other chores. When you come back the mixture will be ready to wipe and those baked-on stains will lift away.
3. The refrigerator. Also one of the most common places for small messes and spills, but when you need that midnight snack cleaning is the last thing on your mind. Clear out the area you need to clean within the fridge, spray hydrogen peroxide and instantly wipe away food stains. Peroxide is non-toxic and won’t hurt you and your family. Or worse, your food!
4. Brighten your hard wood floors. This one may sound a little strange, but trust me it works. Hydrogen Peroxide is strong but effective. Adding it to your hot water before tackling those floors can help bring out a little bit of the initial sheen your floors once had and make it look like a brand new house. And beyond that, you could set your toddler down and not have to worry about them getting your cleaning supply in their mouth. It may taste horrible, but it won’t hurt them!
5. Your sponges. They provide a vessel for most of your cleaning supplies and are normally the most germ ridden thing in your home. Holding onto left over food, old messes, and forming mildew are a sponge’s daily activity. Soak them for ten minutes in a 50/50 water and hydrogen peroxide mix. Rinse them out after and ta-da! You have a clean sponge.
These are just a few ways to get you started or maybe just to sell you on the cheapest, most-effective cleaner I’ve found but I assure you: There are many more places to use hydrogen peroxide in your home. Our Richmond house cleaning maids like to experiment a little around their homes and we suggest that you do too! It’s heavy-duty and non-toxic. What more can you ask for?
