More DIY Cleaning Tips from Budget Maids

Here at Budget Maids we were so impressed at the response we received to last week’s blog post on DIY cleaning tips that we’ve decided to post up more on this article here too. We hope you enjoy using them – we certainly do.

That’s because not only are many of these tips eco-friendly, but they also cost less in most cases, than conventional cleaning methods, many of which involve having to buy expensive cleaning fluids and sprays. Anyhow, read on for some excellent inspiration:

How’s your pans? If they happen to be burnt right now and you want an easy way of cleaning them then – if you don’t already have some – it’s time to invest in some vinegar and baking soda. What you need to do is pour a cup of water into the pan in question then add one cup of vinegar. Once the water and vinegar mixture is boiling add two tablespoons of baking soda. Next empty the pan and scour with an abrasive cloth.

Keeping carpets clean naturally can be easier than you think. All you need is a little salt, white vinegar and borax. Equipment-wise a vacuum cleaner and carpet steam cleaner are also necessary. First vacuum the carpet well, next mix the above three substances into a paste and apply it to the part of the carpet you want to clean. Once it dries (this should take around three hours) vacuum again.

Next, apply the steam cleaner. Add some white vinegar to the hot water for some super-duper cleaning power. Later use the steam cleaner a second time. Don’t walk on the carpet until completely dry.
