The most useful cleaning tips from professional cleaners
We all have our cleaning tips. Practical advice that we learned from our mothers, for example. These eight cleaning tips all come from a professional cleaner who swears by their methods. And there are some very practical ones!

  1. Oil on stainless steel
    Do you have a good stainless steel refrigerator or freezer? Many newer models have the silver color characteristic of stainless steel instead of the white plastic of the old models. It’s good as long as it’s clean! Fat fingerprints are quickly created on stainless steel. The trick to solve this problem? Place a drop of oil on paper towels. Olive oil or baby oil, whatever you have at home. Rub the oil onto the areas to be treated and dry with clean paper towels. Your fridge will shine again!
  2. White chalk on dirty laundry
    Do you have a grease stain on your clothes? As usual, rub the stain with white chalk before washing the garment, and then wash it as usual. It works with fats like butter, vinaigrette, oil from olives and more. You’re not chalk? L’corn starch or talc also contain fat in clothing. You can sprinkle it on the stain and leave it for 10 minutes. Then wash.
  3. Delete
    What few people know: When using the aspirator, it is better to pull the handle than to PUSH it. Slowly move the aspirator toward you to pick up as much dirt as possible. This works particularly well on carpets. If you have hard floors, first use the Avirateur without accessories to pick up large particles of dust and dirt. This prevents everything from blowing and swirling.
  4. Corn Starch for Windows
    We have already given you the advice to clean your windows with vinegar. Melissa Maker recommends adding a teaspoon of cornstarch. Mix one cup of eau, one cup of vinegar and one teaspoon of cornstarch and use it to clean your windows. L’corn starch acts as a mild abrasive that dissolves dirt more quickly. Result: clean and streak-free windows.
  5. White vinegar against limescale
    White vinegar is a real concentrate of strength against limestone. Use it to remove limescale deposits from your faucet and handles. Dip a cloth in white vinegar and place it on the faucet. Leave on for 15 minutes and wipe off with a clean cloth. To descale the showerhead, tie a sandwich bag filled with vinegar around it. You can leave this all night long. Rinse well before showering! When you wash the shower curtain, also put a cup of vinegar in the washing machine.

Steel Sponge
Donna Smallin Kuper cleans the glass doors of her shower with a steel sponge. According to her, this does not scratch, but removes limescale and soap. Also, don’t FORGET to use a squeegee after every shower to remove the eau.
Toilet brush
If you put the toilet brush back in the holder while it is still wet, it will quickly become dirty. Tip: After use, attach the brush between the seat and the bowl so it can drain and dry.
Case that stinks
Do you have a passionate athlete at home? Then you probably also have sports equipment that smells bad. Place non-washable items such as shoes, helmets and other equipment in a closed bag in the freezer. Cold kills bacteria and devices smell significantly less bad.
