Cleaning Your Home On A Budget26Sep 2014
Keeping your home thoroughly and fantastically clean might seem like an expensive venture, but it doesn’t have to be if you have the right products, tools and knowledge! You don’t need a professional cleaner or an arsenal of expensive branded cleaning products to keep your house spotlessly clean, and if you want a thoroughly clean home without breaking the bank then just follow these easy and affordable tips!1) Making your own cleaning products.You might feel as though you need many different expensive branded cleaning products for a lot of different purposes, but did you know you can make your own multi-purpose cleaner using just water and lemon juice? Mix together one part lemon juice to two parts water and pour the mixture into a spray bottle. The lemon’s natural antibacterial properties and fresh scent make this the ideal spray for cleaning your sideboards, bath, taps, mirrors, shower curtain, tiles, strong surfaces and more! You can even use this spray to help lift stains from your clothes, and the concoction is quick and cheap to make. Ensure you always have the ingredients to make a fresh bottle whenever you plan on thoroughly cleaning your home!2) Save money on your cleaning tools.It’s okay to re-use your cleaning tools as long as they’re regularly sanitised. Sponges, mop heads and more can all be re-used if they’ve been properly cleaned. Try letting them soak in a mixture of bleach and water for around thirty minutes to ensure that they’re free from bacteria and suitable for use in your home.3) Deep cleaning on a budget.If you’re planning for a spring clean, end of tenancy clean or if you just want to ensure that your home is as free from bacteria as possible then it’s a good idea to invest in a steam cleaner or carpet cleaner. Steam cleaners are fantastic for use on stairs, carpets, upholstery, tiling, clothes and more, but they can be quite pricey. If you want the benefits of a steam cleaner in your home then why not see if you can rent one? Many cleaning agencies and online stores rent steam cleaners and carpet cleaners so that you can still get the deep clean that you need, without it costing the earth! Have a look in your area and online to see what you can find within your budget!4) De-cluttering your home.One of the best ways to make your home appear cleaner and tidier is to have a good sort out. Go through each room of your house and get rid of anything that you no longer use or want. You can sell items that are in good condition, or donate them to your local charity shops. Anything that’s past its heyday should be thrown away. De-cluttering your home can save you space and leave your home looking more spacious, so try this today to get a cleaner looking living space!
