Get Fruity at Home with Office Cleaning London
As a company that specialises in office cleaning, London Office Cleaners knows that there’s nothing worse than arriving at someone’s house or workplace and having to inhale the heavy scent of bleach, disinfectant, air freshener, or carpet shampoo, bar stinky bin bags of course. It’s one of the reasons we’re particularly fond of using eco-friendly products as they don’t contain the high levels of chemicals that the big brands tend to.
While our company only performs commercial and office cleaning, London Office Cleaners obviously have homes to go to at the end of a very productive working day. And, when we’re not relaxing in front of the TV watching the latest movies or our favourite soaps, we can often be found giving our kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms a jolly good clean.
Sometimes, we realise we’ve run out of our favourite cleaning products half-way through the job, which isn’t idea when the nearest shop is thirty minutes away and we’re looking and feeling all hot and bothered. However, our Office Cleaning London employees are a highly creative bunch, and they’ve come up with five fantastic suggestions for cleaning products you can whip up using the fruit in your kitchen.
So, if you’re sick of stinky chemical sprays or your anti-bacterial wipes have dried up, why not try making your own products at home? It’s a cheap solution and it’s also an environmentally-friendly way of sprucing up your house!

- Vinegar is an excellent natural cleaning agent, and if you want your home to smell citrus-fresh, you can add lemon, lime, orange, or grapefruit peel to it before you get to work. Vinegar works particularly well on kitchen worktops, hobs, floors, and windows.
- If your furniture polish has run dry, grab a cup and fill it halfway up with olive oil. Add half a cup of lemon juice and a sprinkling of lemon rind. Use a rag to apply it to your leather sofas or chairs and store it somewhere cool and dry for future use.
- Coke might not be a fruit, but many of us have a bottle of cola lying around the house. It’s great at tackling grease stains on clothes, and you can even use it to clean your toilets by leaving it to sit in the bowl for an hour before scrubbing with a toilet brush.
- The acidity of citrus fruits is excellent for cleaning metals like brass, chrome, and copper. Simply chop your chosen fruit in half and use the flat end to clean the dirt and grease away. You’ll have sparkling results without the unpleasant chemical whiff.
- Hands up who hates cleaning their oven? We know many of our Office Cleaning London team would rather part with their favourite items of clothing than get down on their hands and knees to try and scrub away months of built-up oven grease! Luckily, help is at hand in the form of lemons again. Squeeze the juice over the stickiest spots and leave it to sink in for a few minutes before gently scrubbing. For hard-to-shift grease spots, try pre-treating the areas with a sprinkling of salt or bicarbonate of soda.
Not only can citrus fruit help keep your house looking spotless, but they can also help you look younger for longer according to this recent Daily Mail article!
