Cleaning agent can be used around the house in all sorts of different ways. It is an environmentally friendly and versatile cleaning product that can be used in various ways to clean various things in your home. Mixed with other household items, it can even be used as an air freshener or degreaser.
Nail Polish Remover
Nail polish remover is for sale in almost every drug store or supermarket, but just because you can buy it in the store doesn’t mean there are no better alternatives. Almost all nail polish removers that are on the shelves often contain the substance acetone.
This substance removes your nail polish very well, but it can also damage your nails. In addition, you can also get sick from the fumes from the acetone. A possible alternative is therefore cleaning agent. We will honestly admit that removing nail polish with disinfectant is not as fast as with nail polish remover, but it will not make you sick and your nails will be less damaged.
Air fresheners are also for sale in the supermarket, but the question is whether these air fresheners are good for you. They are often full of all kinds of chemical substances that are not good for your health. That is why you’d be much better off making your own air freshener. This is very easy!
Mix 1 cup of cleaning agent with 10 to 15 drops of essential oil. The oils are available in all kinds of scents such as lavender, citrus and eucalyptus. Put the mixture in a spray can and you have your own cheap and environmentally friendly air freshener!
As you wear your silver necklace for longer, it will discolour and black spots will appear. That’s why it doesn’t look nearly as good as when you first got it. Fortunately this can be fixed very easily. Soak the discolored jewellery in detergent for a few minutes. Then wipe them clean with a cloth. You will see that all the black spots have disappeared and that your jewellery looks as good as new.
Killing Bed Bugs
There are all kinds of pests and nasty insects, but one of the most annoying insects must be bed bugs. These little creatures hide, as the name suggests, in your bed and bite you in your sleep.
According to research, this does not cause any diseases, but the bites of bed bugs itch terribly. Fortunately, these irritating critters are easy to kill with cleaning detergent. Spray a few times over your mattress, or wherever the bugs are located. Allow the mist to dry and then vacuum it up with the vacuum cleaner.
Remove Unpleasant Odors
There are always a few items in the house that can stink. For example, think of your sneakers or trash. These odors are easy to deal with cleaning agent. Simply spray the smelly object with some isopropyl and then dry it in a place with lots of sun. The odor of these smelly objects is caused by bacteria and the disinfectant kills these bacteria, causing the unpleasant odors to disappear.
Cleaning Permanent Marker
Oops! You accidentally used a permanent marker to write on a whiteboard. What now? Many people panic enormously when this scenario occurs, especially if they put a drawing or message on the board that not everyone is allowed to see. With disinfectant, this problem is quickly solved.
Grab a sponge, moisten it (it shouldn’t be soaked, so keep it under the tap and then squeeze it out) and then put a little splash of detergent on the sponge. Then rub the sponge on the permanent marker on the board. You will see it disappear like snow in the sun!
Remove Grease & Grease Stains
Disinfectant is a great substitute for degreaser. It is more eco-friendly and a lot cheaper than the degreasers you buy in the store and it works just as well. So do you have a carpet with a big grease stain or a pan that just doesn’t want to be cleaned? Then put some cleaning agent on a clean cloth and start scrubbing the grease area. After a while the stain will disappear.
Cleaning Your Glasses
Nobody wants to walk around with dirty glasses. You can see a lot less yourself and the people around you will probably not like that they can no longer look into your eyes. Fortunately, the stains are easy to remove with some disinfectant. Spray your glasses with a little of the cleaning agent and then grab a soft, dry cloth to wipe away the stains. Make sure you use a soft cloth: if you don’t use a good cloth, you can scratch your glasses.
Cleaning Your Skin
Do you suffer from acne? Then disinfectant can probably offer a solution. This ‘medicine’ can help remove and prevent acne and pimples, because it has a disinfecting, calming and cooling effect. That is why it can remove the dirt from the skin and unclog the pores.
Rub a little cleaning agent on your face with a soft and clean cloth and you will soon see your problems diminish. Continue to do this for a while and you will soon have good skin without pimples and impurities.
Remove Sticker Residue
When you buy something new, more often than not, it comes with some stickers that tell you the price or the product number. When you try to peel these off, often you’re left with annoying and hard-to-remove sticker residue. Luckily, a bit of disinfectant can solve this problem.
Simply dampen a paper towel with the cleaning agent, lay the towel over the sticky area, then wait a few minutes until the disinfectant dissolves the glue. After this, remove the sticker residue by rubbing away any lingering material with your fingers or a plastic scraper.
