Test, test, test!
It’s unlikely that most cleaners have been tested on ALL surfaces. If you’re worried, always try your products on a small inconspicuous area before taking on a big area.
In preparation, a quick wipe down, hoover or dust is key. This will clear your surface of any grubby bits, any residue or dirt and ensure you get the optimum results.
Use a non-scratch sponge
It doesn’t matter what surface your cleaning, no matter how durable, a non-scratch sponge ensures your surface stays as sparkly and new as possible. There are some great non-scratch sponges out there now. If you are using the ecoegg Hard Surface Cleaner, this comes with one which is a great on all surfaces – even for getting the toughest stains off pots and pans.
Clean in circles
Wet your sponge so its damp and go around in circular motions all over your surface. In particular focus on the tough spots to ensure it gets through all the stern, ingrained marks. Once thoroughly scrubbed, rinse your sponge clean and rinse away residue product from your surface.
Microfibre cloths… are your best friend when it comes to cleaning hard surfaces! Sometimes, cleaners leave residue on surfaces after you’ve finished cleaning, some visible, some not. Always wipe them down with a very lightly damped microfibre cloth (not in circular motions this time – we don’t want smears). This will leave your hard surface with shiny polished and buffed effect.
There’s something about making your home smell lovely, fresh and newly cleaned. However, there are so many cheap and cheerful cleaner these days which are full of synthetics and harsh chemical smells and the smell replicates that, so make sure you pick wisely!
