Keep stainless steel fingerprint-free

  1. Clean the surface with window cleaner.
  2. Dry with a soft cloth and then apply a very thin layer of oil to the whole surface.

Baby oil is great in the bathroom, but stick to an odourless preparation for the kitchen

Cleaning bathroom tips

  • Remove any dust build-up over the ceiling fan.
  • Vacuum the floor and any bath mats to remove hair and dust.
  • Spray shower and bath, leaving the cleaner to work while you wipe down the walls.
  • Scrub shower and bath, paying close attention to edges and grouting; use a squeegee for any glass panels or doors in the shower.
  • Remove everything from vanity top and wipe down top and basin.
  • Clean mirror.
  • Scrub and disinfect inside of toilet, and don’t forget under the seat and all other nooks and crannies. Wipe down outside of toilet.
  • Leave a drop of disinfectant or a squeeze of lemon in the bottom of the toilet brush container to keep it smelling fresh.
  • Mop tiles.

Homemade cleaning products

  • Microfibre cloths: they may be made from synthetic materials, but these cloths, when dry, pick up dust like nothing else. When damp, they cut through grime with just a little elbow grease. They can also be thrown in the washing machine and used again and again – but make sure you don’t add fabric softener. It coats the fibres and reduces their effectiveness.
  • White vinegar: great degreaser and when diluted can be used on wooden floors, tiles and benchtops.
  • Lemons: tougher than vinegar. Try rubbing a cut lemon dipped in salt on sink stains.
  • Bi-carbonate of soda: use on its own as an abrasive or combine with vinegar to move tough stains.
  • Salt: good natural scourer. Dip a toothbrush in salt and scrub tile grout.
  • Washing soda: this is more alkaline than baking soda so use gloves. A natural alternative to sugar soap.
  • Soap flakes: when dissolved in warm water, pure soap is a good all-round cleaner. If you need extra power, add some washing soda.
