Professional home cleaning is usually an once a year kind of a thing, and Christmas is usually that one time to call in a team of professional cleaners to make your home feel like new again.

And for such years, articles like these are able to help to a great extent. Inspired by “Cleanmama”, here are some home-made cleaning solutions that will make your life easier this Christmas.
Most home owners and stay at home wives prefer to use commercially available products for cleaning. This is completely justified considering the fact that they are easy to find, easy to use and extremely effective. Their effectiveness is a product of extreme concentration of toxic chemicals which get the job done, but can be hazardous to your health and especially if you have children and pets.
Here is a list of cleaning solutions and how to use them:
Hydrogen Peroxide is available commercially. This chemical should be used with extreme caution. By attaching a sprayer to the top of the bottle, grouts can be sprayed upon to remove stubborn mold and mildew.
While the powerful steam machinery rests in our arsenal, smaller models are available at departmental stores all across the country. These domestic cleaners can help to clean tiles on a regular basis. These machines cannot turn the situation around when the tiles have been ignored for months and are now full of hardened stains and filled up grouts.
