Or else, call the professional cleaners in your region to help with some expert advice and tips suited to your case. There are two main ways to go about it – using your own homemade detergents and solutions and using professional ones.
– Make a simple homemade detergent for the light stains and dirt. This acts like a multi-purpose detergent, which can be applied onto almost every type of material and object. Mix hot water with dish-washing detergent, shampoo, baking soda and a tiny amount of white vinegar in a medium-sized bowl. Stir the solution well until everything dissolves and apply it directly onto the stains with a sponge. This is perfect for spot cleaning and wiping greasy spots, dry kitchen grease etc. If you want a stronger detergent for upholsteries, carpets, rugs and other textile surfaces, then add a couple of tablespoons of powder laundry detergent to the detergent and use very hot water. Make another detergent for special stains and special objects – for example, for glass surfaces such as mirrors, windows, glass tabletops, etc. You will need only water, white vinegar, dish-washing detergent and lemon juice. This solution acts as a degreaser and s deodoriser at the same time, and is suitable for spraying right from a spray bottle.
– Call the professionals in your area. There is nothing to beat the professional cleaning services and equipment. Their expertise and experience can help deal with some of the most persistent stains and blemishes, such as a heavily soiled kitchen or bathroom. This is not the best option for the end of tenancy cleaning if you are on a budget, but it is definitely the easiest and quickest option that guarantees the best results that meet your expectations and those of your landlord.
Four, when dealing with kitchen appliances, don’t forget to pre-soak the dirtiest objects in the kitchen sink. Start by filling the sink or the largest bowl that you have with hot water. Add all the ingredients for the homemade detergent mentioned above and stir well until everything dissolves. Soak the metal grids, racks or shelves of the oven, the fridge, the freezer in this solution. Let them soak for a few minutes or maybe for a good long hour or so, and then the cleanup of the dried dirt will be much easier with just a sponge.
