Cleaning a blocked drain with baking soda and other natural products

Ali

We provide a step-by-step guide on cleaning your drain with baking soda and other natural products. Baking soda has become the not-so-secret ingredient when it comes to cleaning. 


Why use baking soda to clean drains?

Baking soda is versatile when it comes to cleaning. It can be used as an all-purpose scrubber that is also effective on kitchen grease, a scouring agent or even as an oven cleaner. 

What makes baking soda special is that this powdery substance can act as a powerful odour absorber as well as a mild abrasive. Often it works better than soap as it can easily dissolve dirt and grease. 

How often should you clean your drain? 

We recommend you clean your drains once a month as a precaution to prevent them from clogging up. You should also clean your drains whenever you notice that your water is starting to drain more slowly. 

Maintaining your drain will save you from calling for professional help when matters get out of hand. On a weekly basis, you...

How to Clean a Shower Head

Ali

We make cleaning a shower head quick and easy with our top tips. Our step-by-step guides show you how to clean a shower head using vinegar or baking soda. 

 

 

If the water pressure in your shower is no longer what it used to be, then the solution might be simpler than you think. 

You might not need to replace the shower head. You might just need to give the shower head a deep clean. We’ll show you how. 

Why you should clean your shower head?

The water you use to shower contains minerals. Over time they build up and clog the little nozzles on your shower head. 

The small, warm and dark enclosed holes then become the perfect environment for mould and bacteria to grow right over your head. 

How often should you clean a shower head? 

Water quality is essentially the main factor in determining how often you should clean your shower head. 

If you live in an area with hard water, there is likely to be more mineral buildup in the...

Ali

Learn how to make the best homemade window cleaner solutions. We have the best tips for cleaning glass with dish soap, vinegar, alcohol, and lemon juice.  

Why cleaning your windows is important

Other than enjoying a better, clearer view there are many reasons why you should clean your windows. Leaving the glass dirty for long periods of time could damage and degrade the glass. 

Being exposed to the elements, acid rain and dirt slowly corrode the glass leaving behind cracks and scratches. Not to mention how dust and dirt can reflect the sun’s UV rays deteriorating heating efficiency in your home. In addition, mould build-up can diminish the air quality.

How often should you clean your windows?

In general, the inside of your windows should be cleaned seasonally, a minimum of every 3-4 months while the exterior should be cleaned at least twice a year. 

How often you clean your windows could depend on where you live. If you live in an area with a lot of...
