Well Polished Top 10 Lockdown Cleaning Hacks

by Emma Harrop, Apr 2020

Your cleaning lady misses you too!

Here are a few cleaning hacks that our team has put together for you to use during lockdown.

1) Add dishwasher rinse aid to your mop bucket for a less slippery floor and a great finish!

2) Add fabric softener to your window washing solution for super shiny, streak-free windows, which stay cleaner for longer!

3) Use hairspray to remove biro marks from leather furniture.

4) High traffic areas are a necessity during Covid 19 times – include light switches, bannisters, door handles, kitchen cupboard fronts. Use your regular anti-bac spray, finishing with a wipe of Zoflora, which is a disinfectant and leaves a heavenly fragrance!

5) If you’re a fan of fabric softener smells, throw a good glug into your cistern, you’ll have a lovely waft of fragrance every time you flush!

6) Use a mixture of white vinegar and washing up liquid to beat shower screen scum – who knew?!

7) For cleaning silicone around your bath or shower, prepare 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 bleach mixed together for a scum / mildew busting solution!

8) Cleaning each room from top to bottom ensures you don’t knock dust or crumbs down onto a space you’ve already cleaned. Start by dusting the ceilings, light fixtures, walls, and windows first, then work your way down.

9) Your microwave can get gruesome quickly! Stuck-on grime is difficult to clean. To loosen up the stuck-on pieces, place a cup filled with water and run it for 3 minutes to allow steam to form. Filling your microwave with steam will loosen the stuck-on residue and works as a pre-clean.

10) For streak-free cleaning buy a squeegee! Use on your windows, mirrors, and shower doors for quick, easy and super effective cleaning!
