Want a Clean Apartment? Don’t Fall for These Common Myths

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:

  • Cleaning suppliesMYTH: 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.
