You’ve moved into your first apartment and it’s perfect, but how do you keep your apartment clean? We all know it can be a chore, but there are some rules of thumb that aren’t necessarily the best. Clean less as we debunk these common cleaning myths:
- MYTH: Clean wood with furniture polish every single time. This is unnecessary, as frequent polishing of wooden furniture can cause a buildup of sticky film. Apply furniture polish no more than once a week with a microfiber cloth.
- MYTH: Newspaper is the best cleaning material for glass. Use paper towels to clean windows. Newspaper is lighter, tears easily and can stain windows.
- MYTH: Vinegar can be used on everything. Vinegar isn’t the wonder cleaner many people think it is. When it comes to grease and dirt, eco-friendly options are far more viable.
- MYTH: Hairspray helps with ink removal from clothes. Years ago this was true, because hairsprays had an alcohol base. Nowadays, hairspray uses a little to no alcohol as a base. Use rubbing alcohol instead.
