The easiest way to keep any property clean in general isvacuuming it. Get yourself a good vacuum cleaner and clean every corner. Vacuum cleaners also remove the dust from sofas, ottomans, and corners of the floor. After you have cleaned the dust from the entire property, it is important to mop and disinfect the floor. Here are some tricks to keep your floors clean and disinfected, and additional ECO-friendly warnings about using vinegar for cleaning.

Although vinegar is a very good natural cleaner, here are several instances when you should skip the vinegar and grab a different cleaning agent for the job.


Clothes Iron

It could permanently damage the inside of the appliance. Moststeam ironshave a protective coating inside the chamber, but acid can eat away at the lining, and then the metal parts are next.


The vinegar acid etches and dulls them and can break down any sealers that have been applied. Instead, I recommend wiping down these types of countertops with a sponge, or dish towel semi-wet with few drops of mild detergent. Use only plastic scrub pads to remove stubborn spots.


Use a dishwasher cleaner, such as those from Affresh or Finish, to remove hard-water film because many dishwasher manufacturers warn that the acetic acid can eat away at the rubber parts in the appliance.

Electronic Screens

Never use it on an electronic screen like that on yourcomputer,smartphone,tablet, orTV. “Vinegar can damage a screen’s anti-glare properties and even make a touch screen less responsive. Use a soft sponge or cloth semi-humid with plain water and 1-2 drops of dish liquid instead.

You want to keep vinegar away from some grades of stainless steel. The best cleaning option is Dawn dishwashing liquid and very warm water.


Small Appliances

The plastic and glass surfaces on mostsmall kitchen appliances, such as blenders, coffee makers, and toasters, are safe to clean with vinegar; however, there are different grades of stainless steel. Be careful because, the lower-quality small appliances are less resistant to rusting. When in doubt, use diluted dishwashing soap instead.
