Whether it be sticky toddler fingers or muddy hands fresh from the garden, your door hardware is always going to take the toll of family life, meaning that every once in a while they need cleaning up.
To keep your stainless steel shiny, bright and clean, we recommend using a light mist of an aerosol based cleaners, wiped clean with a lint-free cloth (microfiber is great!). Don't use oil-based products and try to avoid bleach and whatever you do – no scouring pads!
It's also around this time of year that you start to notice all the little imperfections that have worked their way onto your lovely painted walls over the holiday season.
To save time, money and effort, we prefer to clean off the scuffs and marks, rather than re-paint the entire wall. All you need is a soft sponge, a little water mixed with dishwashing liquid (the milder the better). Once the stain is removed be sure to rinse the wall afterward with plain water.
Let's face it, cleaning tiles is a dull job – so you want to make sure it's done as quickly and efficiently as possible – right?
The best way to achieve this is to use a neutral pH cleaner, or mix baking powder and water for a cheaper alternative.You can also use this mixture for cleaning grout – works wonders on white particularly!
Once you've made time to clean your home, make sure it's done properly – really clean it! Get it all out of the way so that afterwards you can enjoy your home to its best potential...and show it off!
