How to Clean Your Cleaning Supplies

Do you find yourself replacing your used sponges, mop heads, dishcloths, scrub brushes, and microfiber cloths? Besides being bad for your wallet it is bad for the environment. In this post, we not only aim to tell you how easy it is to take care of your cleaning supplies but also to compel you to do so instead of buying new stuff. 

It is important to clean your supplies regularly, because, over time, they become little tiny but very populous civilizations of germs. 

From your dustiest dusters to your greasiest sponges, everything can be cleaned with a little effort and know-how. Once you learn how to clean your cleaning tools, your home will be a cleaner and safer place for your family.

Scrub brushes

Rinse your kitchen scrub brushes thoroughly to remove all food particles or dirt. To remove debris and dirt caught in bristles, don a pair of gloves and pick out any hair or caught debris with an old pen, a toothpick, or a chopstick. Do not soak brushes, as doing so can weaken or dislodge bristles. Then put them away with bristles up to dry. 

Sponges

If your dishwasher does not have a sanitize cycle, do not put dirty sponges in it together with dishes. Also do not put sponges in the microwave to kill bacteria, as it can cause a fire. Instead, soak dirty sponges in warm water with 1 tablespoon of OXY powder. Then thoroughly rinse and wring them out, and put them somewhere to air out and dry thoroughly. 

Mop

Even a little bit of dirt in the mophead can result in a sour smell in the house. After each use, rinse the mophead in clean hot water. If your mop head is machine-washable, put it in the washing machine. Never rinse mop heads in the kitchen sink to avoid spreading germs. Always allow the mophead to fully dry. Store head up.

Cotton dishcloths

Remember not to throw damp cloths in the laundry basket or mold will start to grow. You may machine wash and dry them once a week. Dish-scrubbing tools are home to germs. Use bleach to completely kill the germs and bacteria and get rid of any mold, mildew, or other stubborn smells. Wash your dishcloths separate from clothes. 

Broom and dustpan

You may clean your broon from hair and other dirt stuck in it by brushing it with a large utility comb. Store your broom upside down or hang it on a wall. 

To clean the dustpan, use a damp cloth with mild detergent to wipe off any dirt on it. Always handle dust pans in rubber gloves.

The same tips apply to cleaning a rubber handle dustpan and brush.

Duster

Whether you’ve chosen a feather duster or a lamb’s-wool duster, the general use and care is the same. Release the dust by shaking the tool outside, or gently tap the duster on your ankle to release the dust onto the floor to then vacuum up.

Vacuum

Empty or change the bags before each use. After use, unplug your vacuum before cleaning it. You may use a damp cloth with mild detergent to wipe off any dirt on the parts. If you get a smell coming from your vacuum, it is most likely because your bag is full. This prevents normal airflow and fans from turning and can ruin your vacuum from overheating. Regularly check your vacuum for hair and clogs every month or so. Refer to your vacuum’s user guide for more detailed instructions.
