There’ll be no Such Thing as Mess This Christmas

‘Tis the season to be jolly, it’s the holiday that everyone looks forward too and it’s nearly here. Along with good tidings we bring some useful advice on cleaning this holiday. Mess is the one thing any mother cannot put up with and with Christmas just around the corner, mess is something that will be constant during this holiday. With aunties and uncles making that long trip down to see you, you can’t ask them to take their shoes off in the living room and the kids will be seeing their cousins after quite some time, so you can’t say anything to them either.

Five Cleaning Tips For The Christmas Period

A Bit of History

In the year 1908, William Henry Hoover also known as Boss Hoover bought the patent of a machine called the Suction Sweeper. Since then, the Suction Sweeper underwent many changes and today we know this device as the vacuum cleaner. For more than 70 years, the name ‘Hoover’ has been associated with cleanliness another is Black & Decker.

We’ve taken household cleaning to the next level by creating powerful, user-friendly products that leave your home spick and span. At Black & Decker, we’ve put in a lot of research into cleaning and we’re going to share some of it.

With the Christmas season approaching, the necessity to keep a clean home increases two-fold, here are Black & Decker’s five cleaning tips for the holidays.

Five Cleaning Tips and Tricks

  1. The dirtiest item in the house is the kitchen sponge. It harbours millions of germs. If you put it in the microwave for about two minutes, it’ll kill most of the germs and leave your table tops much cleaner.
  2. Kids tend to write on anything and everything around the house. A little hair spray and wipe will take pen marks right off.
  3. Everybody loves pets, but when they shed, there’s fur everywhere. Wiping the ‘furry’ area with a rubber glove is a neat trick. The fur sticks live a magnet on a fridge.
  4. If you have limescale in your bathroom or kettle, you can use flat Coke or Pepsi to remove it.
  5. Dust mites are attracted to skin cells. Vacuuming your mattress once a month, removes accumulated skin cells and will prevent dust mites from sleeping with you.
