Cleaning your house to make it new and germ free

Clean and fresh things always attract everyone. When we enter into any body’s house the first thing we notice is how hygienic the family is?  It’s human nature that clean things attract a person more than the shabby ones. You must have noticed when we go out for shopping we always prefer going to a clean store where dresses are piled in an organized manner,  dummies are well dressed rather than a store where things are lying here and there, no decorum of keeping clothes, dummies are dressed untidily.

Hiring a cleaning service provider is good way to keep your house clean but with kids you need to be more conscious about cleaning as they eat anything edible lying on floor without knowing what it is and hiring a cleaning service provider for every day cleaning doesn’t fit everybody’s pocket. Thus its always good to hire a cleaning service provider once or twice a month but what about everyday cleaning? And when you have kids at home then you don’t have to think about only cleaning rather you have to think about eco friendly cleaning as harsh chemicals can harm the health of babies as we all know kids are not that much immune as compared to adults. So let’s talk about every day cleaning in eco friendly way which will not harm anybody’s health.

Following are some useful tips which will help you in cleaning and will make your house sparkling like new and that too in low budget.

Living Room

Now let’s start from the living room as when someone enters our house the living room is the first place where he sits. Use vacuum cleaner for cleaning as brooming will lead to more dust which will increase your job. Use vacuum cleaner for cleaning roofs, pendant lights. Make a homemade cleaning solution – 2 Tsp baking soda, 1/2 Tsp dish washing soap, 4 Tbsp white vinegar, 400 ml warm water, stir well to mix the solution, put the solution in a plunging bottle. Shake well before use and use it for every day cleaning. Now take a cotton cloth and damp it with above cleaning solution and clean your wall paintings, Television, centre table, leather couch etc with it. Mix baking soda with 1 tbsp of fabric softener and spread on mattress. Leave it on the carpet for an hour and vacuum it off. It will kill all germs and freshen up the mattress (But do this once a month as overdoing it will damage the fibers of the carpet). Now clean your floor with vacuum cleaner and for grouts use above cleaning solution with the help of a used toothbrush. Mob the floor spray a homemade room freshener and you are done.


Now let’s clean the bathroom as we all know maximum number of germs reside in the bathroom. For cleaning toilet flush add a cup of baking soda to the toilet, leave it for an hour, and then flush. It will clean the toilet and absorb the entire odor. For cleaning tiles, glasses, mirrors you can use the preciously mentioned cleaning solution.


For Greasy areas such as exhaust fan, chimney, you can use coca cola yes cola cuts grease very quickly. For kitchen cabinets use the everyday chemical free cleaning solution which we made above. For making stove, oven, pans, stainless steel appliances sparkling like new put 1/4 cup of baking soda in a bowl, add enough peroxide to make a paste. Apply this mixture on utensils for 2-3 minutes rub gently and wash it off. To make your microwave shine like new and make it odorless, put 1-2 cups of water with 1-2 tbsp of vinegar put in a microwave bowl and switch on the microwave for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes clean the microwave with soft cotton cloth and you will see the change yourself.

I assure you that if you do this on weekly basis then you won’t take more than 2 hours to clean your whole house. Or you can do it by cleaning one section of your house every day. It completely depends on your convenience.
