Cleaning Your Home With Less Products

Cleaning your home means different things to different people. If you live with two German Shepherds, you might have to vacuum at least  twice a week to stay ahead of the massive shedding this breed is known for. If you’re potty-training your toddler, you probably need to clean your bathroom more frequently than a single woman who lives alone. Have cats? Eliminating nasty odors could be at the top of your cleaning concerns.

While your lifestyle can play a role in certain aspects of cleaning your home, everyone knows that eliminating germs is an essential part of a clean home. Here, we’ll review the basics for  cleaning every surface in your home. Plus, how you can do this without purchasing a variety of cleaning products.

How to Clean Your Floors

Every home needs at least a vacuum cleaner, dustpan, broom, and mop. Those living with wall-to-wall carpets might use the vacuum cleaner more frequently than a person who has all hardwood floors. How often you vacuum, and mop depends on your lifestyle and personal preferences.

If you have a dog, it could be a good idea to keep a towel by the door. That way you can clean your dog’s paws before they bring more dirt into your home.

However, it doesn’t matter what type of flooring you have in your home; when something spills, clean it up immediately. This will prevent a person from slipping and falling and reduce the risk of staining the floor.

How to Remove Odors

If you just finished cooking cabbage, eliminating the smell is easy. Open the window. Or, put some cinnamon and a splash of vanilla extract in a small saucepan with water. Let that mixture simmer while you do the dishes, and the scent of cabbage will quickly disappear.

 If you have a litter box, changing the kitty litter more frequently can solve the problem. These types of odors are easy to fix. Unfortunately, some sources of an unpleasant odor—like a toilet flange not sealing well or mold and mildew—might be harder to identify. 

In that case, try spraying BactroKill on the surfaces in the smelly room. It’s highly effective in eliminating mold, odors, and VOCs!

How to Disinfect Surfaces

If only germs would turn a surface neon green. Then it would be easy to see the Salmonella from where the drippings from raw chicken touched the kitchen counter. Or the doorknob would be bright  green to identify the Coronavirus, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and MRSA germs that are living on the handle.

While these germs are invisible, routinely spraying kitchen counters, doorknobs, bathroom surfaces and staircase banisters with BactroKill will remove 99.9% of germs, viruses and bacteria.

When someone in your home is ill, remember to also frequently spray the handles of faucets and the television remote to keep those items germ free. 

How to Eliminate Numerous Cleaning Products

As you’ve just read, BactroKill is effective against mold and mildew. Plus it’s a powerful disinfectant and odor remover. Not only can this one product do the job of other household cleaners, it’s also a proven way to clean and disinfect without using harmful chemicals. 

It’s an EPA registered antimicrobial spray disinfectant that’s perfectly safe around your family and pets.
