3 Cleaning Myths

Bleach is the ultimate cleaner.

While bleach does a great job at disinfecting, it doesn’t do the best at cleaning. It can also remove stains, but it doesn’t clean dirt or residue.  Plus, you got that smell, and that fact that it can damage some surfaces and remove color.

Use more soap for a better clean.

Just because something is dirtier, doesn’t mean simply adding more soap will do the trick. Often times adding more soap makes it hard to rinse all of it off, and then the soap left behind can leave a sticky residue that dirt can stick to.

Use coffee grounds to deodorize your garbage disposal.

While it might take care of the smell, coffee grounds shouldn’t go in the garbage disposal. They can clog your pipes and drain. Try using a lemon rind or vinegar ice cubes.
