Debunking Cleaning Myths: Insights from the #DreamCleanTeam

Hey there tidiness enthusiasts! We have all heard those age-old cleaning myths passed down from generation to generation. But hold onto your scrub brushes because the #DreamCleanTeam is here to debunk some of these myths once and for all.

Myth #1: Vinegar is the Answer to Everything

Sure, vinegar has its place in cleaning, but let's not crown it queen just yet. While it's great for cutting through grease and grime in some cases, it's not the miracle solution for all your cleaning woes. In fact, using vinegar on certain surfaces like marble or granite can do more harm than good. So, let's raise a toast to vinegar's versatility but keep it in check.

Myth #2: More Cleaner = Better Results

Newsflash: Dousing your surfaces in a sea of cleaning solution won't make them sparkle any brighter. In reality, using too much cleaner can leave behind a sticky residue, attracting even more dirt and grime. Talk about counterproductive! Remember, a little goes a long way. So, ditch the notion that drowning your countertops in cleaner equals a cleaner home. Trust us, your surfaces will thank you.

Myth #3: Bleach is the Ultimate Disinfectant

Ah, bleach—the mighty warrior in the battle against germs and bacteria. While it's true that bleach can zap those pesky microbes into oblivion, it's not the only option in town. In fact, there are plenty of safer and more eco-friendly disinfectants on the market that get the job done just as effectively. The #DreamClean Team loves using tea tree oil. Known for its antibacterial, antivirus and antifungal properties, it leaves your house smelling fresh and like a spa. So, let's give bleach a break and explore our disinfecting options without the harsh fumes and toxic chemicals.

Myth #4: Newspaper is the Secret to Streak-Free Windows

Who knew that your morning read could double as a window cleaner? Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but this one's more fiction than fact. While newspaper might seem like a budget-friendly alternative to paper towels, it can leave behind ink residue, resulting in streaky windows that'll have you seeing double. Opt for a microfiber cloth instead for a streak-free shine that'll have your windows looking crystal clear. Try using hot water, dish soap and a squeegee. Buff with a microfiber cloth. Game changer!

Myth #5: Cleaning Can Wait Until Spring

Ah, the infamous "spring cleaning" myth—a classic case of procrastination disguised as tradition. Newsflash: Dirt and dust don't adhere to a seasonal schedule! So, why wait until spring to tackle your cleaning tasks when you can enjoy a clean and clutter-free home all year round? Break free from the spring cleaning cycle and embrace the beauty of a consistently clean home. Your future self will thank you!
