Deep Cleaning Hacks for Your Home

Just in time for your spring clean, we’ve put together these deep cleaning hacks to help you clean your house better than ever before. Certain deep cleaning tasks feel like such a chore that they get frequently pushed to the bottom of the list. These tips and tricks will turn those chores into 2 minute tasks.

1. Cleaning the shower head: The easiest way to deep clean your shower head is to remove it from the holder and place it in a plastic bag that is filled with vinegar. Once you’ve left it for a while, take it out of the bag and give it a wipe down and the limescale will be gone. 

2. Removing mold: Mold is rife in rooms that get damp often, particularly shower rooms and kitchens. As it can be hazardous to yourself it should be removed right away, but we know this often isn’t the case, as it isn’t the most enjoyable task. To get rid of the mold use a spray bottle with bleach and scrub it off. You may want to use an old toothbrush to scrub the grout between tiles. Make sure the area you are working in is well ventilated. 

3. Cleaning lamp shades: Lamp shades collect dust very easily, and it isn’t practical to give them a once over with the duster as this just makes it worse. Instead, you could use a lint roller or a hoover. 

4. Cleaning brooms: Cleaning a cleaning product may seem weird, but how else do you expect it to clean your home! Brooms quickly become clogged with dust and hair, which isn’t conducive to cleaning. You can fill a bucket with hot soapy water and soak your broom as part of your deep cleaning schedule. Then you should be able to clean off the plastic bristles easily.

5. Cleaning greasy ovens: Greasy ovens can be a nightmare to clean, and require a lot of elbow grease. If you want a simpler method you can make a paste out of baking soda and water and then spread it over the oven. Let it soak for about 10 minutes and then spray with a layer of vinegar. Once it begins to fizz it will loosen the grease and grime, and you should be able to remove this easily.

6. Removing pet (or human) hair: If you have a cat or dog, or maybe you even find yourself malting a lot, you know how annoying hair can be. No matter how much you hoover there always seems to be hair left over. One deep cleaning method is to use a lint roller on sofas and rugs, but a rubber glove also works well. The static from the glove makes the hair cling to the rubber, so it is easy to clean your upholstery just with your gloved hand.
