1. Use leftovers as cleaning supplies.

“If you have half a lemon leftover, use it to clean stainless steel fixtures and faucets,” says Donna Smallin, cleaning expert. “Rub it over the areas you want to clean, then wipe them down with a microfiber cloth.”

2. Get grime off your grill.

While the grill is still warm, use a wire brush to scrub down the grates. If you’re dealing with major mess, take the grate off the grill, and use oven cleaner to attack the stuck-on food and grime. Just make sure to do this in a well-ventilated area, wearing rubber gloves to protect any exposed skin.

3. Fight water rings with an unexpected superhero.

No matter how vigilant you are about keeping coasters available to guests, inevitably someone will put a glass right on your new wood coffee table. Don’t sweat it. Instead, apply full-fat mayonnaise to the water ring, let it sit for an hour, and then gently wipe it off with a cloth.

4. Don’t let sweaty hands get the best of your appliances.

Keep the kids’ (or your own) sticky fingerprints off the fridge using our Flourish Window, Glass & Shiny Surface Cleaner. It does a great job cleaning and leaves surfaces clean and shiny. One spray goes a long way!

5. Don’t let mildew and mold take over.

Washing machines will smell a bit in the summer, especially in areas with high humidity,” says Smallin. “Run an empty load with detergent and hot water. Once it’s done leave the door ajar so it dries properly and gets air circulation.

6. Don’t let unsuspecting items get grimy

Plastic pool toys, floaties, or rafts need to be cleaned too. Use vinegar applied to a paper towel to wipe them down. It disinfects and you don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals touching you or your child’s skin. If water can get inside then the bad bacteria will build up inside the toys. Suck Uri-bug up into the toy leave it for a couple of minutes and rinse well with warm water, it’s natural and wont cause any harm to you or the environment. Uri-Bug is part of our Janitorial Supplies range.
