6 Useful Cleaning Tips

Here are a few interesting tips for around the house.

When you add bleach to the laundry, it should not be added along with your laundry detergent. You should wait until the last part of the laundry cycle and then add it so the detergent does not counteract the bleach.

Many people feel that the bathroom is the dirtiest place in the house, but kitchen sinks have been found to have more germs than the toilet.

A carpet can also be thousands of times dirtier than the toilet seat.

Never use two cleaning chemicals together as many times this can cause toxic fumes.  Bleach and ammonia should never be mixed as the fumes can burn your eyes and make you sick.  If you need to use a different product on the same surface, just be careful to wipe the old product and rinse the area well before applying the new one.

Laundry detergents and fabric softeners have been known to cause skin allergies.  You can replace the fabric softener by using a little white vinegar in place of it.  If you are still having allergic reactions, it is your laundry detergent.

Antibacterial cleaners cannot do their job if you are in too much of a hurry.  You must leave them on the surface for at least 30 seconds in order for them to work or it will be just as good as not using an antibacterial formula.
