A month or so ago my trusty old washing machine gave up the ghost. It was over 8 years old but was on light duties until the kids came along. Within a few weeks of have baby number 2 the heavy washing load for a family of 4 was too much for it. Therefore it went to washing machine heaven along came a much bigger better washing machine. I thought my new machine would be better on my whites, but this wasn’t the case.
Along came ACE offering me the chance to try out their stain remover and cleaning products. Plus you have the chance to win your own bundle of ACE cleaning products later on.
Time to clean your home again? Dull, huh? Not necessarily. Actually, cleaning can actually be quite the fun, and not at all as time-consuming as you think. We interviewed maids from leading cleaning companies and they advised us how to clean our homes quickly and efficiently. And according to specialists, cleaning your home can be ten times faster if you just break the bad habits and replace them with good ones. And, believe us, we, too, were shocked when we found out about these habits.
Using bleach to clean is wrong
Your mother lied to you when she said that there isn’t a better all-purpose cleaner than bleach. In fact, bleach has no cleaning properties at all. Thus, if you use it as a cleaning product, the bleach is as good as nothing. Another lie you’ve been told is that bleach never expires – actually bleach loses 90 percent of it’s disinfectant properties just 60 days after it’s first use.
The right habit to adopt: Inform yourself before you declare a product the perfect all-purpose cleaner. You’ll be surprised but vinegar, for example, is ten times more effective than bleach (and it’s not only a disinfectant like bleach – it’s good for cleaning, too).
