After I had hip surgeries, I had to come up with ways to make cleaning easier physically. Here are some of the ideas I used, as well as I plan on keeping moving forward.
After fighting breast cancer, I am also eliminating as many chemicals as I can from my home. I’ll be using things that you have in your home already and there are no harsh chemicals. We’ll be using things like soap, baking soda, rubbing alcohol, water, and more. We’ll also be using things that are washable and reusable helping us be good to our environment.
What is the best way to clean a shower?
I filled a small squirt bottle with 1 tsp. Dawn and water, and I keep it in my bathroom.
I spray the soapy mixture on my shower tile and glass. Then I use the Clorox extendable tub and tile scrubber to clean my glass and tile without bending over.
I sprinkle the base of my shower with baking soda.
I use the extendable scrubber to clean the bottom. After it’s all clean, I rinse it all off.
What is the best way to clean a bathtub?
I spray the soapy water mixture onto the tub and surrounding areas. I used the extendable scrub brush to wipe it all down.
You can also use a broom to do some of the scrub work for you.
What is the best way to clean a sink?
I fill a dish scrub brush with Dawn and keep this in my bathroom.
I use this to clean out my sink, clean off my granite counter, and I can also use it in my shower or tub on the glass, tile, etc. Soap is a safe way to clean your granite counters as it’s not acidic and doesn’t have chemicals that will hurt them.
How do you clean cloudy mirror glass?
I filled a small squirt bottle with rubbing alcohol and leave this in my bathroom as well.
I spray the rubbing alcohol onto the mirror. I then use a Swifter mop with a reusable microfiber cloth and clean my mirrors. You can wash the cloths when you’re done and use them again. No harsh chemicals and reusable is an added bonus for me.
How do you clean dust and cobwebs?
I use a broom to get rid of cobwebs in corners and on light fixtures. It’s fast and efficient.
How do you clean painted baseboards?
I use an extendable duster to clean my ceiling fans and baseboards. I extend the brush and wipe the baseboards off, or it can bend and reach the tops of fans. Once I’m done cleaning with them, I can hand wash them in my laundry tub or on a gentle cycle in my washing machine.
What floors can you use a steam mop on?
I use a steamer mop on both my tile and wood floors. This will sanitize your floors with ease and you won’t break your back doing it. In addition to that, it is a chemical-free way to clean your floors. I recently wrote a post about my new Wagner steam cleaner and you can check that post out here – Chemical Free with a Wagner Steam Cleaner
The best part about many of these is that they use reusable clothes and items. I can launder them and use them again which makes it better for the environment.
How do you clean dirty outside windows?
For my outdoor window cleaning, I use our power washer. It cleans out the tracks on the outside as well as the windows themselves. If you don’t have a power washer, you can use attach a hose sprayer with soap in it onto your hose. Spray your windows with the soapy mixture, let stand for a few minutes, then rinse off with regular water.
What is the best thing to clean a patio?
I also use my power washer to clean my patio and patio furniture and cushions. If you don’t have a power washer, you can use a deck brush and soapy water to clean your patio. When you’re done rinse with water.
