At Preferred, we just love to help. Whether it’s existing clients or just providing advice. We really pride ourselves on being a one stop cleaning solution on the Gold Coast. Below are a list of cleaning tips compiled by our Director Carl.

*  To help stop bathroom mirrors steaming up, regularly rub a dry bar of soap over the surface and rub in with a clean dry microfiber cloth.   Alternatively rainex (automotive product) is another great option twice a year.

* Polishing a marble bench top with car polish leaves a thin, invisible film that helps reduce the risk of stains and aids in cleaning. Ideally an oil based polish should be used

* Light a match and blow it out to remove those nasty toilet smells. Everyone loves the smell of a lit match too

* Cleaning the bottom of an iron has never been easier, try this. Sprinkle some salt on the ironing board and iron back and forth.

* Cleaning as you go during cooking will greatly reduce the amount of clutter at the end of the cooking session. You’ll be more likely to have a clean work bench and kitchen if you clean as you go.

* To help save on electricity do most of your cleaning with cold water (except for towels, bed sheets and underwear)

* Olive oil is a great way of removing sticky residue marks from stickers, double sided tape etc.

* We’ve all heard the bi carb soda odour removal trick. Well not in all scenario’s however placing some in a container in your fridge definitely does remove old food odours.
