Easy Cleaning Tips for Landlords and Tenants
There is a lot to be said for keeping rental property clean. If you're a landlord, a clean property is likely to be better maintained, helping you benefit in the long run. If you're a tenant, you want to live in a clean.
However, for a tenant, the real reason to maintain the cleanliness of a home is to get your deposit back at the end of the tenancy. Getting a significant sum of money back is all the incentive most tenants need to care for a rental property.
There is a wide range of cleaning products, equipment and material to choose from these days. If you need a helping hand clean a house, there is no shortage of options. However, if you don't have a lot of money to spend on cleaning products, or you don’t have the time to hit the shops, you can use household items to clean your home.
With items which are likely sitting in your cupboard right now, and a bit of elbow grease, you can remove the dirt, dust and grime from the rental property in no time at all.
Lemons and sea salt works really well
If you are looking to add a dash of excitement to a portion of fish and chips, you may be looking out the salt, while slicing up a lemon to better flavour the fish. These are handy items to have at home, but did you know lemons and sea salt are effective at tackling spills and stains?
Mix a dash of lemon juice, some water and sea salt to create a slightly abrasive mixture that whips stains away in no time.
When you have a big cleaning project on the go, you'll likely invest in a lot of cleaning products. If you are looking for natural cleaning products, you may have to dig around the shelves a bit, but there are solutions you can buy.
Baking soda is essential when cleaning
You know baking soda is handy in the kitchen, but did you know it plays a big role in cleaning your home too? If you want to neutralise nasty smells, baking soda is a great addition to a room, shelf or cupboard. You'll even find many people place baking soda at the back of their fridge to keep that area smelling nice.
Baking soda can also be used with vinegar to create a solution which is ideal for scrubbing stains and ensuring surfaces look as good as new.
Vinegar has a few roles to play in the cleaning process
You may think vinegar is the ideal accompaniment to the fish and chips which were mentioned earlier, but it also plays a significant role in cleaning a home. Vinegar works well with baking soda, and if you're keen to clean the bathroom, vinegar can add a nice finish to many of the surfaces in this room.
You may be surprised to learn, but vodka is also highly effective for cleaning the bathroom. If you want porcelain to gleam, using vodka with a soft cloth leaves an appealing finish.
