Green Cleaning Your Halifax NS Condo

Tue, 25 Jun 2013 by Polycorp

Q Lofts is a “green” building so let’s see what else we can do to incorporate green habits into our every day living. 

There are new cleaners which are eco-friendly and easy to use but for those who would prefer a hands-on approach, here are some simple recipes that can make cleaning your Halifax NS new condo a quick and easy process.

  • By mixing 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and ¼ cup undiluted white vinegar into 1 quart of warm water, you can keep your windows and glass streak-free. There will be mix left over so we suggest pouring it into spray bottles for future use. These can go under the sink or bathroom counters. Though old cloths or t-shirts can do the job, use newspapers for a lint-free look.
  • Carpet dents in your area rugs? No problem! By placing ice cubes on your area rugs and leaving there for fifteen minutes, you can get rid of them because the water absorbs the dents. This will definitely come in handy as you settle into your home and decide to rearrange the décor.
  • To get rid of stains and tough messes on your new condo in Halifax NS floors, put washing soda on them, mix a little bit of elbow grease into it and wash thoroughly.
  • Create your very own homemade multi-purpose cleaner by blending 1 gallon of warm water, 1 cup of ammonia, ¼ cup of baking soda and ½ cup of white vinegar. This is sure to keep other areas in your condo spotless and smelling fresh. 

By using these home remedies, you can save money and help the planet by using non-toxic chemicals. Have fun getting green and keeping your Halifax NS new condo clean.
