In our daily lives we have to overcome many obstacles, but let’s help you with five top cleaning tips to get rid of stains and dust.
Stains can be the biggest nightmare. They can ruin a perfectly good outfit, or even worse, your favourite carpet or couch. And dust creeps into every crevice, sometimes unnoticed for months. But you don’t have to live with these irritations – all you need is the know-how (and the right products) to get rid of these nasties as soon as they appear.
KEEP THESE TOP TIPS IN MIND TO ENSURE YOU ALWAYS HAVE A STAIN AND DUST REMOVAL PLAN ON HAND
For make up stains, grass stains, and other pigment-based damage, you can use diluted bleach. Bleach is effective at removing colour but can be harsh on delicate fabrics, so proceed with caution.
For greasy burger juice stains, chocolate stains and the like, your best bet is detergent. These are particularly effective against grease stains, but need to be washed out thoroughly to prevent fabric damage.
For hair dye stains, wiping down houseplants or sprucing up a leather sofa, look no further than baby wipes! The most underrated of all cleaning products, baby wipes are the perfect fix to have on hand at all times.
They’re also perfect to clean grubby light switches and kids’ plastic toys as well as being the ideal addition to a camping pack! They’re versatile, small, and easy to handle. Add them to your next grocery store purchase list today.
Microfiber cloths are the perfect weapon to get rid of dust because they are ‘sticky’ and therefore actually remove the dust, rather than just moving it around. Make sure to wash your dust cloths with detergent after each dusting session, separate from other laundry.
Dusting wands are perfect for hard-to-reach areas, like ceiling fans, tall bookshelves or the top of door frames. Extend the wand as far as necessary and place a rag on the floor below to catch any falling dust.
