Cleaning your home for the new year

I am sort of OCD when it comes to cleanliness, any sight of something dirty or a foul smell puts me into a cleaning frenzy. I cannot stand knowing that there are germs on our doorknobs, the refrigerator handle, kitchen sink, tile floors, and even on the toilet seat that we sit on each day. Diluting bleach in a specific amount of water can actually work really well on all of those countertops and even that smelly toilet!

Knowing that I can use bleach to clean and sanitize, I decided to challenge myself to clean my whole house with just Clorox┬« Regular-Bleach. Here’s why…

  • Clorox┬« Regular-Bleach kills 99.9% of common household germs – including some cold and flu viruses!
  • Bathrooms and kitchens are especially full of germs, so it’s important to use something that will not only clean these surfaces but disinfects and deodorizes them as well.
  • Cleaning with bleach and water solution makes it simple and much more affordable to clean the whole house. No need to purchase 5 different cleaners for each area of the house!

How to disinfect frequently touched hard surfaces (bathtub, bathroom sinks, kitchen countertops, cutting boards): Use 1/2 cup of Clorox ® Regular-Bleach in 1 gallon of water. Thoroughly wet the surface with the solution and allow it to remain on the surface for 5 minutes. Rinse with clean water and dry.

How to remove mold and mildew: Disinfect all cleaned surfaces with a solution of 1/2 cup of Clorox ® Regular-Bleach, diluted in 1 gallon of water.

Routinely check potential problem spots (e.g. Bathroom, laundry, mechanical room, etc.) for moldy odors, and disinfect often.
