Kollect’s Spring Cleaning Hacks
Because we’re in the “making things clean” business, we thought it might be an idea to put together five of our favourite Spring Cleaning Hacks, to help you clean the house from top to bottom this spring.
1. Disinfect Your Sponge In The Microwave.
Seriously. Fill the sponge with water, zap it in the microwave for 2 minutes and BOOM, 99.9% of all bacteria contained within the sponge are gone!
2. Use Vinegar For Almost Everything.
Did you know that vinegar is a cleaning super-hero? Here are just some of the things you can do with vinegar when you’re not covering your chips with it. Mix 2 tablespoons of white vinegar with a gallon of water, stick it in a spray bottle and voila, you’ve got a window cleaner. If you're having trouble getting that annoying sticky label residue off of a product or if you accidentally glue something together, try using vinegar as a solvent to dissolve many common adhesives.
Also, if you want to deep clean your dishwasher, place a large cup of vinegar on the top rack and run the dishwasher empty as normal. There’s a million other things you can do with vinegar too (Google it).

3. Defrost The Freezer Like A Sauna
Unplug your fridge or freezer unit and remove all frozen foods. Line the bottom of the freezer with paper towels. Fill a bowl or two with boiling hot water and place them on top of the paper towels.
Close the freezer door. The steam from the bowls will melt the frost. And in case you’re wondering, the paper towels will absorb the wetness. Wipe the freezer down with a sponge and some all-purpose cleaner and then send us a nice thank you box of muffins.
4. Fresh Carpets - Always
The second best secret ingredient that you probably already own is Baking Soda. Give it a google to see all the magic cleaning things it can do for you, but our favourite, and one we use in the Kollect office is mixing baking soda with an essential oil and intermittently shaking it on the carpet (and then vacuum it 30 mins later). (You can do this on your mattress too)
5. Get Someone Else To Do The Hard Stuff
