After a tiring day at work, there is nothing more satisfying than coming home to a clean and tidy environment. While you may think that scouring your windows and floors is all that is needed to keep your home spotless, there is a lot more that goes into cleaning. 

You need to own the right equipment and learn about correct cleaning methods and materials o ensure that you do a thorough job. However, the many myths and misconceptions associated with cleaning may cloud your judgment and prevent you from choosing effective cleaning solutions. To help you separate fact from fiction, M & E Spotless Cleaning Services has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about cleaning.

Myth 1: Newspaper works best for cleaning glass.
Many people believe that using wet newspapers to clean glass can help keep it speckless. However, wet newspapers tear easily and can transfer ink to the window trim, leaving more to clean. The use of microfiber cloths is the best for cleaning glass. They leave no streak or ink on window trims.

Myth 2: Vinegar cleans everything.
Vinegar is an acid, so it can cut through dirt and kill bacteria, but only if you use it at full or nearly full strength. Most people put a capful in a bucket of water, and that doesn’t do much. On the contrary, the acids in vinegar can damage natural stone and wood surfaces.

Myth 3: Bleach cleans everything.
Bleach actually doesn’t ‘clean’ anything. It doesn’t clean dirt and residue from surfaces. It kills bacteria and helps lighten stains, which makes things look cleaner. So, it’s better as a sanitizer than as a cleaner.
