Bizarre Cleaning Approaches Nobody Ever Told You About

Cleaning Supplies

It’s a common fact that most people don't like that moment when they have to clean their place up. Not that they don’t take pleasure in it. The whole process just takes way too much time they could otherwise spend elsewhere.

Of course, some people love cleaning, others have chosen it to be their job. But we can all agree on one thing - we love the scent of freshness in the air and the look of our flashy windows. It also makes us feel more productive because it really takes big amounts of energy and willpower to perform a task of such magnitude.

Let us now take a look and discuss some of the unusual approaches to house cleaning, sources of inspiration, guides and more. Some of them are gaining popularity slowly over time, while others still count as “underground”.

Guides

When you don’t know how to do something you usually ask a friend or a professional to give you a hint or two. But in present days where the Internet has become probably the most widespread way of communication, you can find what you are looking for there, in a matter of seconds. And if you still don’t agree with this statement, get your smartphone and search for an on-demand cleaning app in the area you reside in. Yes, people create such apps and they are becoming more popular with each day.

This is what you can do with the use of the web:

1. Read articles that guide you through natural or lesser known cleaning methods.

Have you ever heard the phrase “you can find everything in google” before? Well, that is true. Every single day people share enormous amounts of information on any subject you can think of. All you have to do is to type your query in the search engine and you will get all the guidance you need. This explains how you got here in the first place.

2. Watch a tutorial video on youtube

Video sharing sites are popular too when it comes to tuition. They are even better than articles because you can actually see how to do stuff in the process of making.

3. Ask directly

There are sites like Yahoo answers or Quora that provide a fast response to all your questions, written from people to people.

The “Out of the Ordinary” Approaches to Cleaning

Below you will find a list of some of the most unusual yet best ways to clean furniture, appliances, clothes and other.

1. Freeze your jeans

As ridiculous as this may sound, it works. It looks like this method simulates the cleaning process well enough for you to rely on it. Just be sure to save space for food too, or the other way around.

2. Clean air vents

Clean your vents well and apply car wax on the in- and outsides. This way dust will stick to them instead of being stuck and hard to remove.

3. Mirrors

Use air-fresheners to clean your mirrors and leave a nice fresh smell while on them. It does the job perfectly. Otherwise, newspapers work too, absent the smell.

4. Kill moss from your roof

If you sprinkle some powdered laundry detergent on your roof it will kill moss and wash it away when the next rain falls. A smart one.

5. Sponges and cutting boards

This sounds simple but have you ever thought of doing it before? To kill bacteria on sponges and cutting boards, put them in the microwave for three minutes. Do this every once in a while to make your kitchen a safer place.

6. Use vodka to clean mold away

Pour some vodka in a spray bottle you are about to throw away. Apply on the “infected” spot, wait for about fifteen minutes and scrub it away with a toothbrush.

7. Black tea

There’s an alternative use of this divine drink. You can clean wooden floors and furniture with it and bring their true color to life once more.

8. Ketchup and mayonnaise

These two are not only used to give a flavor to your food. They have other useful uses. For example, with ketchup, you can remove tarnish from copper and brass cookware. Squeeze some on a cloth and rub it on a pan. Rinse it with warm water, dry it out and see the magic.

Mayonnaise, on the other hand, helps remove crayon marks from wooden surfaces and makes your house plant leaves shine.

9. Beer

It appears not only people love beer. Slugs, snails and fruit flies are also drawn by its aroma. If you use this to your advantage, you can drown them by pouring beer in a jar or a plate and save your garden.

10. Bread

With fresh white bread, you can remove fingerprints from walls and dust from oil paintings.

11. Rubber glove

Put on a damp rubber glove used for dishwashing and run your hand over hair covered upholstery.

12. Baby oil

This is another way to shine your wooden furniture. You know what to do.

What about you? Do you have any other unusually strange cleaning methods in and around the house?
