Here are 5 cleaning tips to avoid by far!
Do not use window cleaner on the mirror!
Window cleaners were really only developed for cleaning windows. It produces a glossy, spotless surface on glass, and the idea is obvious that it works just as well on other surfaces. However, the mirror is not a smooth glass surface, cleaning the windows can damage the reflective surfaces. Instead, use a damp MicroUNI microfiber cloth, then wipe dry and lint-free with the MicroGlass cloth with a textured surface.
Vinegar for everything
Vinegar is one of the most environmentally friendly natural cleaning agents. According to tests, 10% vinegar kills 99.99% of pathogens, so it also disinfects perfectly. However, there are some surfaces on which it is not recommended to use it at all due to its acid content, such as wooden furniture, screens, displays, joints, vinyl and linoleum floors and surfaces made of stone.
Mixing cleaning agents is PROHIBITED!
When you are dealing with a stubborn mess, it can be tempting to combine two strong cleaners to tackle the tough job. The reality is more cautious: just because one product works, mixing it with another will not make it more effective. In the best case, they lose their effectiveness, and in the worst case, we can create a dangerous situation with it. And even if a makeshift cleaning agent combination is not dangerous or toxic, we do not know what effect it may have on a surface or fabric. One of the most dangerous combinations is bleach (hypo) and vinegar or ammonia, or hydrogen peroxide and vinegar.
Cleaning the toilet with detergent
Keeping the toilet clean is a major issue in every home. This could have led to the idea that many people clean the toilet bowl with washing up liquid several times a week, since it is usually always at hand. The result can be brilliant, but not worth it. Detergents can damage the rubber seals, which can lead to leaks.
Cleaning the toilet with cola
The use of cola should also be avoided when cleaning the toilet. Although the phosphoric acid found in soft drinks dissolves slowly in lime, it is expensive compared to vinegar and its efficiency is worse, so it is not necessary to use it for this purpose – emphasized the experts of the BONUS.
