What household items can help to clean your home?


Most of us will know about using vinegar and baking soda to help with the cleaning, but have you heard about some of the other household items you could be using?

Some might be obvious, but others may come as a surprise. Check out our list to see what you might have in the cupboard that could help with the cleaning.


This might come as a surprise, but the acid in grapefruit is actually brilliant for removing stains, limescale and tough marks that have set in over time.


Coke contains carbonic, citric, and phosphoric acids, which are also found in household cleaning products. When these acids mix together, they're brilliant at breaking down tough stains.

You can also use coke or other fizzy drinks to help unblock drains. If you pour a large bottle down the sink, the acid will cut through small blockages and leave your drains clear.


It's great for keeping your teeth clean, so it should come as no surprise that toothpaste can also help out with household chores. Use it to remove marks from hard floors and countertops, and even those on leather shoes.


Did you know that using banana skin can help to buffer leather? After you have used banana skin on your shoes, you should then use a damp cloth to remove any residue.


You might have done the experiment in school where you clean a penny with ketchup, which tends to leave it sparkling. Well, why not use this trick in the home as well?

The natural acid in the tomatoes, combined with the spirit vinegar, creates a powerful cleaning effect on metals and other materials. 

If you don't fancy trying these out, then why not call in the experts to help out? It's unlikely they'll be using ketchup to clean, but you can be sure you'll get the best results, leaving your home sparkling.
