Top Tips For A Clean Lounge Room

With all the constant activity in the one room, your lounge room needs a lot of attention when it comes to cleaning!

Whether you live in a house, apartment or duplex, this is the place you sit with your family and friends, talking, eating, watching TV, working and sometimes sleeping!

Here are 5 simple but effective tips from our friends at Viva Cleaning  for cleaning your living area:

1)      Dampen a paper towel with eucalyptus oil and dust off bedroom furniture, shining, disinfecting and helping to keep sinuses clear during the cold and flu season

2)      Try using eucalyptus oil in boiled water to mop floors. It lifts dirt and grease, and leaves the house smelling great

3)      Mix one part olive oil with one part lemon juice to polish wood.

4)      Soak a cotton ball with lavender oil and pop it in your vacuum bag. It will leave your home smelling fresh when you vacuum.

5)      Tip icy cold water on red wine spills on carpet – this will bring the stain to the surface and you can then soak it up with a VIVA Paper Towel.

Eucalyptus oil for the floors definately leaves the floor looking great and what a wonderful refreshing smell

I love the idea of the cotton ball in the vacuum bag for a fresh smelling home, do you think you can do this with other scents? I am not the biggest fan of lavender. :)

I mopped my kitchen and bathroom floors with eucalyptus oil and boiling water and it worked fantastically. I love anything natural so this is another goodie for me to share. So cheap and the smell was fresh and lovely. well done.
