Several Ways to Deep Cleaning Your Home

Home isn’t actually clean until all the unexpected places are disinfected and spotless. Read informative post below on ways to deep clean your house:

Remove stains out of your microfiber couch with rubbing alcohol
Using isopropyl alcohol, a white sponge, some elbow grease and a white bristle brush to make couch look just like new. Make sure to get white tools/items so that the color dyes will not transfer to your fabric.

Steam clean mystery stains out of your carpets using an iron
There’s no need to rent a giant hulking carpet cleaner, except if you are planning on doing the entire house work. All you need is iron.
Here’s the item that you will need: White Vinegar, Water, a Spray Bottle, A Rag, and an Iron. Spray the spot with a solution of 1 part vinegar with 2 parts water. Place a moist rag over the spot. Iron on the steam setting for about 30 seconds. If the stain is really stubborn, repeat the steps and it work!

Dusting off fan blades with a pillowcase
Use Pillowcase as Ceiling Fan Duster. Slide an old case over a fan's blade then pull the fabric back, keeping all the dust and dirt enclosed.

When a duster won’t get all the dirt off the blinds, use some vinegar
Mix equal parts vinegar + water in a bowl. Then slide an old sock on your hand, dip your hand (with the sock on it) into the vinegar and water mixture and wipe down each individual slat on the blinds. After every couple of slats, dip the sock on your hand into the cleaner and squeeze it a bit to rinse off the dirt. It's also useful to have a second old sock. Once all the slats have been cleaned, slip the second old sock onto your hand and dry off each slat.

Use ammonia on your stove grates
Hate scrubbing? Remember ammonia? Basic ammonia? Take about 1/4 cup of ammonia and seal it up with one of the burners in a large ziploc bag. You only need an small amount of ammonia in the bag. You are not trying to bathe the burner. You just want to cover it up with the ammonia fumes.
