Want to sell your home? Get cleaning!

New survey lists the top factors that could prevent your home from selling.

A recent survey has found that after poor energy efficiency rating and out of date bathrooms/kitchens, the biggest factor that would put people off is a home that needs cleaning!

The thing is, it’s not just a question of giving the house a quick ‘blitz’ before someone comes round. Not only will your home smell of polish and cleaning products that may be off-putting at best and make the visitor suspicious at worst, but years of neglect WILL show. By using a handful of traditional cleaning products, you can keep your home clean and fresh without the unnatural fragrances and potentially toxic chemicals.

White Vinegar

White Vinegar is a natural cleaner that has been used safely for centuries. The active ingredient in White Vinegar is acetic acid which is derived from plants. It has cleaning, descaling and deodorising properties.
Long regarded as a powerhouse cleaner which can kill bacteria, germs and mould. White Vinegar also breaks down soap scum and water stains. It leaves your windows and mirrors clean and streak-free.
To eliminate soap scum and mildew in your shower, simply spray the affected area with White Vinegar, leave to treat for a few minutes and then wipe away.

Bicarbonate of Soda

Bicarbonate of Soda is a traditional cleaning product that is favoured for its deodorising and mild abrasive properties – not to be confused with Baking Soda – which also contains sticky raising agents for baking.
Bicarbonate of Soda absorbs odours very well. Its gritty texture makes it the best soft scrub you can use. Deodorise your upholstery by sprinkling some Bicarbonate of Soda over your sofa, mattresses and rugs. Allow to sit for at least an hour or overnight and then vacuum off.

Liquid Soap Flakes

Liquid Soap Flakes contain only pure soap with no additives or fragrances, making them a great choice particularly if you have sensitive skin. No residue is left on fabrics or in the detergent drawer making for simple cleaning power.
Liquid Soap Flakes do not contain any animal products and have not been tested on animals, making them suitable for vegans. In addition, they do not contain palm oil – the soap comes from rapeseed and sunflower oil.


All-Purpose Gentle Cleaners

Liquid bicarb and Liquid Soda Crystals are ideal surface cleaner. The former is ideal for delicate surfaces such as hobs, sinks and draining boards whilst Liquid Soda Crystals is fantastic at cleaning surfaces that are greasy, such as extractor hobs and ovens. They are also great for cleaning kitchen cabinets, which tend to get greasy, which in turn trap dust.

You can also make your own gentle scouring paste by combining Liquid Soap Flakes and Bicarbonate of Soda.

Make an amazing scrub cleaner by mixing some all natural Liquid Soap Flakes with Bicarbonate of Soda to form a paste. Use this to scrub on the bottom of pans, sinks, tubs and areas that need a little extra help.
