This Cheap DIY Window Cleaner Will Leave Your Windows Spotless!

Have you ever wondered whether you can use just three natural ingredients that you have in your home to clean your windows? I know I used to wonder which ingredients I can mix to come up with the next best DIY cleaner. Of course, this was way back when I first started switching from commercial cleaners to DIY ones. Now I know that anything is possible – especially deep cleaning your entire home with just a few basic natural ingredients like vinegar and rubbing alcohol. I have saved so much money ever since I started using DIY recipes which is why I recommend you give them a try as well. Also, if you suffer from allergies DIY cleaners will help you a lot because they won’t cause any reactions.

But before I move on to a completely different topic, let’s focus on this DIY Window cleaner that you need only three ingredients for – it’s cheap, it’s easy to make, it’s natural, and it’s super effective. Yes, it will indeed leave your windows spotless and you can even use it on your mirrors! Don’t believe me? It’s tested by the cleaning experts over at (a cleaning company located in London).

Here Is How To Make It!

You need to prepare water, vinegar, and lemon juice… that’s it. Of course, if you hate the smell of vinegar you can also add a few drops of your favourite essential oils. I do that quite often because I’m not a fan of the scent plus I don’t want my home to smell like vinegar.

Mix equal parts of vinegar and water in a spray bottle. I normally use 250ml of each. Then add a few tablespoons of the lemon juice. If I have to be honest, the lemon juice does a pretty good job at canceling the vinegar smell so you don’t really need to add essential oils but if you do have a sensitive nose like mine then 4-6 drops of the oil is enough.

And just like that, you made an incredible DIY window cleaner!

Dealing With Greasy Tiled Backsplash and Grout? How To Clean Them?

The tiles that are in your kitchen are most likely covered in greasy stains. Of course, it’s normal – you cook on regular basis. But what is important is do you neglect the mess or do you clean it up? If you neglect it then every day it will get dirtier and dirtier until one day you can’t stand to look at your backsplash.

This is why I want to share one of the easiest cleaning methods I know of so that you can start cleaning the tiles in your kitchen as often as necessary!

How To Clean Greasy Tiles Backsplash And Grout?

Start off with trying soapy water – a pretty simple yet effective method for removing grease. Soak a sponge in warm soapy water and use a circular motion to scrub the tiles.

Then, dampen a cloth in water and wipe the tile so that you remove the soapy residue.

If your tiles are still pretty dirty then move on to mixing one part lemon juice with one part of vinegar. Dampen an old toothbrush in the mixture then sprinkle some baking soda on top and immediately start scrubbing the tiles and grout with it.

Once you are done – “rinse” the tiles with a damp cloth. Repeat these steps a few times if necessary.

Is There Mold?

If you notice that underneath the greasy mess there was mold hiding then I suggest you try using bleach. Dilute it in water then spray it all over the tiles and let it sit for a few hours before you rinse it.

But make sure that all windows in your kitchen are open. Also, work with gloves!

Cleaning Your Mattress Will Stop Your Allergies!

Many people have allergies – including me! There are so many things that trigger my allergies that I have even lost count – from using commercial cleaners to not cleaning my home often enough.

One thing that I figured out the hard way is that cleaning my mattress can make a huge difference! I used to wake up with a runny nose, puffy eyes, and I couldn’t stop sneezing – but one day I had enough. I was so fed up with these allergies that I decided to research what is causing them, and I came to the realization that I hadn’t cleaned my mattress and my pillows for at least three years. I know – they were so filthy but because I couldn’t see what was hiding in them I didn’t even consider cleaning them.

Do You Use A Mattress Cover?

Are you struggling with allergies? Well, when was the last time you cleaned your mattress? When was the last time you washed your pillows? I used to think that my sheets and the mattress cover are enough to protect my mattress from dirt, dust, and impurities but it turns out that I was wrong!

Nothing can replace cleaning your mattress every six months – not even using a mattress cover!

Clean And Disinfect!

Ever since I realized how important the cleanliness of my mattress really is for my allergies I have made it a priority of mine to take care of this chore.

I wash my pillows once a month by simply throwing them in the washing machine.

Unfortunately, you can’t really do that with your mattress. The good news is that cleaning your mattress isn’t something you should do often – once every six months is ideal.

I either make my own cleaner by mixing vinegar and essential oils or I contact a cleaning company. They usually clean all mattresses by applying steam which extracts all dirt, dust, body-liquids, and other impurities that have been absorbed.

Learn How To Clean Your Stainless Steel Sink

I love stainless steel sinks because they are so easy to clean. Their cleaning also doesn’t require any fancy equipment or special cleaners – you can do it with simple household items.

So if you have a stainless steel sink and you want to know what is the easiest way to clean it I want you to prepare these things:

  • A spray bottle
  • A sponge
  • A cloth
  • Baking soda
  • A lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Vinegar

Yes, this is all you need in order to clean your stainless steel sink and polish it as well. As you can see having a sparkling sink isn’t that hard – and all of these ingredients you already have in your home!

Here Is How To Clean It

Start off with removing any rubber mats, metal sink grinds, or dirty dishes. You want the sink to be empty. Then rinse it with hot water.

Then it’s time to grab the baking soda and sprinkle the entire sink with it. Don’t forget the sides of the sink as well!

Once you do that you need to dampen a sponge and start scrubbing the sink with it. While you scrub you will notice that the baking soda has turned into a paste because of the water. This will work as a powerful scrub which is why you need to be gentle in order to avoid scratching the stainless steel.

Now, once you have scrubbed for a few minutes it’s time to cut a lemon in half and continue the scrubbing with that lemon. Do this for a few minutes then rinse the baking soda and lemon juice.

If you notice any water spots than fill a spray bottle with vinegar and spray your sink with it. Then get a cloth and buff that vinegar into the stainless steel. Then rinse again.

And now you are done with the cleaning – it’s time to polish the stainless steel using the olive oil I told you to prepare. Pour a little bit of the oil into a cloth and rub the sink with it. Once you are done make sure to wipe any of the excess oil with another clean cloth – and you are ready.

How To Easily Disinfect Your Sofa?

A sofa requires to be deep cleaned and disinfected twice a year. Usually, it’s done by steam cleaning. This hot water extraction method removes all the accumulated impurities as well as the germs.

However, if you have pets which are able to get on the couch on their own or if you have kids then you should disinfect them more often. Another reason for sofa disinfection is when someone in the family gets sick.

How To Disinfect A Fabric Covered Couch

If your couch is made out of fabric and it’s not leather then you need to prepare a spray bottle, water, distilled white vinegar and Castile Soap.

Now, mix everything in the spray bottle (2 cups of warm water, 1/3 cup of distilled white vinegar, a tablespoon of the soap).

After making your disinfectant you need to vacuum your sofa in order to remove dirt, dust, pet hair, and larger debris.

Then continue with spraying the fabric with the mixture but don’t go crazy – you don’t want to soak the sofa. Grab a soft brush and gently scrub the surface.

Allow your sofa to air-dry!

How To Disinfect A Leather Couch

Again, the first thing you need to do is vacuum your couch. Then dilute distilled white vinegar with water and pour the mixture in a spray bottle.

Spray the disinfectant on a microfiber cloth and wipe the sofa then once you are done grab another cloth and wipe the moisture.

Are you a huge fan of all the DIY all-purpose cleaners? I know I am. I started making my own cleaners a couple of years ago and I must say I am very happy that I chose to take this route.

Not only am I completely aware of all of the ingredients but they are all-natural. A lot of commercial cleaners contain a lot of chemicals and I am not a fan of that. The other great benefit is that I am actually saving money.

Of course, the next huge benefit is that you don’t use plastic bottles that you throw away all of the time. As we all know this is very bad for the environment.

But I must say that once you start making your own all-purpose cleaners using natural products you already have in your home you get addicted to it and you want to start making everything on your own.

That is why I have the best liquid fabric softener recipe for you

I love this recipe and it provides amazing results. Of course, the ingredients you need are very simple and are all-natural.

You need:

White Vinegar
Vegetable Glycerin
Essential Oil of your choice
A glass Container

Our of everything I mentioned you would probably only need to go out and buy vegetable glycerin since you already have everything in your home.

Mix 2 cups of water with 2 cups of white vinegar. Add 1/8 cup of vegetable glycerin. Then pick an essential oil and add around 15 drops to the mixture.

Pour everything in a glass container and you are done.

This recipe is extremely easy and effective!

Keep one thing in mind

When you are using this recipe do not use bleach! I don’t know if you are aware but vinegar and bleach do not mix well and they create toxic fumes which you definitely need to avoid.

7 things you use every day and you should clean more often

I can guarantee you that there are so many items in your home that you use every day but you don’t clean enough. Make sure you fix this mistake and start cleaning them more often.

– Makeup Brushes

Who is guilty of doing this? This is one of the worst habits a girl can have. Makeup brushes, sponges, beauty blenders are packed with bacteria that can cause infection, breakouts, skin irritation, etc.

– Dishcloths

Wash dishcloths every few days. They collect tons of bacteria that will transfer to everything else in your home.

– Steering Wheels

Do you know what is dirtier than a public toilet? The steering wheel of your car. And that is a proven fact. Research shows that there are more than 700 different bacteria on average which is nine times more than from a public toilet.

Regularly wipe down the wheel with cleaning wipes.

– Mops
Both mops and brooms are supposed to help you maintain your home in a cleaner state but sometimes they can do quite the opposite because of all the dirt and bacteria they collect with time.

Everything that you clean with and is reusable needs to be cleaned itself.

– Light Switches

Light Switches are perfect for spreading germs. Every once in a while make sure you wipe them down with a cleaning wipe.

– Remote Controls

When was the last time you cleaned your remote control? Have you ever even done it? This item filled with bacteria needs to be wiped down with an antibacterial wipe at least a couple of times a month.

– Toothbrushes
I will tell you a very nasty fact about your toothbrush – most likely there is poop and a lot of bad germs like E. coli on it.

The two biggest tips I have for you – don’t store your toothbrush next to your toilet and replace it often.

Creative cleaning hacks that will help you

  • Oil Bottles

Oil bottles are huge messes – we have a hack for you. Get a paper towel, wrap it around the container and get an elastic band with which you will secure the paper towel.

  • Oven Racks

Cleaning your oven is not the most pleasant thing in the world. From times to times I call and let them deep-clean it. But sometimes I use this hack.

Grab some dryer sheets, lay them onto the base of a sink or a bathtub and place your oven racks there. Add some liquid soap and cover the racks with water. Let it sit for a few hours and wipe the racks with the soaked sheets.

  • Your garbage

Do you have a garbage disposal? Cut a few lemons and put them down your garbage disposal unit – switch it on for 15 seconds. This will make every part of your kitchen smell like lemon.

  • Glasses

Are your glasses cloudy? Soak them in vinegar and dry them with a paper towel after.

  • Cultery with rust marks

Grab a large glass and pour equal parts warm water and lemon juice. Place your cultery and let them in for an hour.

  • Your Floor

If the head of your flat floor mop needs replacement – replace it with fluffy socks.

  • Stains

Treat a stain on your furniture with shaving foam. Spray it on the stain and leave for a couple of minutes.

  • Wood

You can use beer to add shine to wood. Just dampen a cloth with beer and clean in a circular motion.

  • Leather Furniture

Use shoe polish to remove scratches on leather furniture. Grab a soft, polish brush and apply a small amount. Start buffing gently on the scratches.

  • Grease on concrete

Pour coca-cola over the stains on the grease.

Always commence the cleaning of your bathtub by pre-rinsing the tub. You can always pre-rinse your tub to removal all sand, dirt and hair that is located on the surfaces of your tub. If you fail to remove these particles they may damage the finish of your bathtub while you are cleaning it. The easiest way to pre-rinse your bathtub is to use the tub’s shower head. Also once you have pre-rinse the tub, remove the shower head so that you can clean it more easily.

Next head to a nearby cleaning company, supermarket or home depot and purchase a commercial bathtub cleaner. Once you have acquired the cleaner, apply it liberally all over the tub and don’t forget to concentrate on areas that are heavily stains and soiled. When you are don’t applying the cleaner, allow it to sit and soak in for a period of approximately ten minutes.

It is very importantly that you let the cleaner sit because it will not only loosen the stains and remove the water spots from the surfaces of your tube but it will also disinfect your bathtub from any harmful particles such as the aforementioned bacteria and germs. Now grab a rag and start scrubbing the bathtub. Don’t apply too much pressure and turn extra attention to the areas around the drain and faucet as these areas tend to harbor large amount of harmful particles and soap scum. Finish your bathtub cleaning by rinsing the tub thoroughly.

If all this seems too laborious and time consuming for you, then you can always hire professional cleaners to clean your tub for you.

You can find the contact details of such companies in the yellow pages and the ads sections of your local newspapers.

Regardless which approach you choose it is very important that you maintain a clean and spotless bathtub, so don’t be negligent about your cleaning responsibilities.

Tips on how to clean kitchen cabinets

Kitchen Cabinets CleaningYour kitchen cabinets must always be spotless and clean because these are the features in which you are keeping your food. If you have never cleaned your kitchen cabinetry before you can check out Cleaning Services Hampstead website or keep reading because we have listed down some very helpful cleaning tips.

The easiest way to keep your kitchen cabinets clean is to dust and wipe them on a regular basis. For instance every two weeks empty your cabinets and wipe the insides of the cabinets with a homemade cleaning detergent that you have made by mixing water and mild soap. Use a soft cloth or sponge to wipe clean the interior of your cabinets. Once you have cleaned the insides, remove any residue from the cleaning solution by using a soft clean towel. Also before you return the content of your cabinetry, check the expiration dates of the foods and discard all foods that are out-of-date.

You can remove stains from your cabinets by mixing oil soap and warm water. Just get a laver and pour in it the ingredients. Allow the water to dilute the soap for several minutes before you start cleaning the stains. Of course you can always head to your local cleaning company and purchase a commercial stain remover. Use the scouring side of a sponge to apply the stain remover but don’t apply too much pressure as you may damage the surface of the cabinet that you are treating. Then use the soft side of the sponge to wipe clean the stain. Bear in mind that some stains are harder to remove than others, so you might have to repeat the procedure for some types of stains. Once all stains are gone rinse your kitchen cabinet with clean water and dry them with a soft towel.

If your cabinets have a protective wax finish, it is advisable that you reapply a wax finish on your cabinets once you are done cleaning them. You should do so because some homemade and commercial cleaning solutions tend to remove the wax finish along with the dirt and stains. You can purchase a wax finish from any supermarket, home depot and cleaning firm. Apply the wax finish by following the instructions that are on the bottle.

The last advice that we have for you is to call professional cleaners to clean your kitchen cabinets from A to Z at least once a year. By doing so you will be certain that all harmful particles are entirely removed and more importantly you will prolong the lifespan of your cabinets.

As you can see cleaning kitchen cabinets isn’t that complicated, so don’t neglect your duties and clean them frequently.
