Make your spring cleaning a snap with Market Australia’s Snap® cleaning products.
You and your family might be spending more time at home; the dust has piled up in every room of the house and desperately needs a spring clean. Before you go into complete panic mode, hear me out! With different Snap cleaning solutions available to you through Market Australia, your cleaning time will be reduced dramatically!
Firstly, maintain a positive attitude as the cleaning must be done, so get determined and visualise the results.
Next, let’s make house cleaning more fun. Whatever genre of music you like, be it pop or classical, listening to music can elevate your mood and get your body moving while you are cleaning. Lastly, create a household chore list of what needs to be done in each room and get the family involved. Providing an incentive is also a great way to bring the rest of the family in to help, as well as cut the work and time in half.
First, you should declutter; clean out closets, strip the beds and organise drawers from light to heavy. Shirts go in the upper drawers and bottoms go in the lower drawers. The same goes for materials; light materials, like cotton, go up top and heavier ones down below. With all of that laundry piling up, it’s a good time to use Snap Triple Enzyme 3X Laundry Detergent and Snap Free & Clear Fabric Softener.
Stains and odours don’t stand a chance against Snap Triple Enzyme 3X Laundry Detergent. Three times more powerful than standard detergents, Snap Triple Enzyme 3X Laundry Detergent provides maximum cleaning power to fight the toughest stains and odours with a light, fresh scent. One bottle cleans up to 40 large loads, 60 medium loads and 80 high-efficiency loads of laundry.
Snap Free & Clear Fabric Softener is a phosphate-free, highly concentrated fabric softener, perfect for all your laundry needs. Snap Free & Clear Fabric Softener leaves clothes fresh and soft and eliminates static cling. One bottle cleans up to 40 loads of laundry in standard washers and up to 80 loads in high-efficiency washers. Once clothes are washed, dried and folded, store them nicely back into the closet.
Next, dust everything off. Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate, a highly-concentrated, versatile, multi-purpose cleaner is the way to go. Mix one capful (15 ml) of concentrate with every 3.8 litres of water and wipe down all areas. It cleans almost everything, from upholstery, walls and appliances, to jewellery, ceramic tiles, countertops and vinyl.
Finally, clean those carpets. Spot treat stains with Snap Heavy-Duty Concentrate. Use full strength and dab a small amount on a cloth or directly onto the stain and rub out the spot. Next, dilute Snap Heavy-Duty Concentrate by using 40 parts water to one part Snap Heavy-Duty Concentrate, and use in your carpet-cleaning machine to eliminate virtually all stains and odours that have mysteriously found their way into your carpet.
Once again, clear the clutter. Remove all your products from the shower and/or bathtub. Clear the vanity of any items. Toss all used towels and rugs into the laundry basket. It’s about time the sinks, vanities, toilets, bathtubs and floors all get a good, hard clean.
For toilet bowls
Flush the toilet, and then add a small amount of Snap Scouring Deep Cleanser directly to the toilet bowl. Scrub the bowl thoroughly using a toilet brush, making sure to get under the rim. Let this stand for 10 minutes before flushing.
For bathroom tiles
Mix 1 part Snap Heavy-Duty Concentrate to 31 parts water. Use a mop or a damp cloth to wipe the surface.
Squeeze a small amount of Snap Scouring Deep Cleanser onto a sponge to clean the surface. Then rinse with warm water.
For Vanity Areas
Spray Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate on the sink, taps and countertops, and then wipe with a clean cloth. If you have any buildup in the sink, such as toothpaste, use a sponge to scrub and loosen before wiping clean. While it’s not part of the Snap product line, try the new Shopping Annuity® Brand Premium Glass and Hard Surface Cleaner on your mirrors.*
Your kitchen is the heart of your home. That might be why having a clean kitchen feels like the first step to having a completely clean house. Start in one corner of the kitchen and remove everything that doesn’t belong on your counters.
For the fridges and cabinets
You should begin at the top by dusting the overhead light fixtures, the top of your refrigerator and the tops of your cabinets.
For inside the fridges
Go through your shelves and remove anything that has expired. Wipe down any spills with Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate, and place things back in their rightful place.
For small and large appliances
Add one capful (15 ml) of Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate to 3.8 litres of water. Clear debris from your microwave, coffee maker and toaster. Start with the interior by removing crumbs from the toaster and also running a vinegar cycle through your coffee maker. Steam the inside of your microwave with vinegar and wipe down. Finish
by wiping down the exterior of all your small and large appliances, including the refrigerator and dishwasher with Snap All- Purpose Natural Concentrate.
For stoves and ovens
Before you start the process, line a tub with old towels so it doesn’t get scratched. Then fill the tub with hot water and some Snap Dishwashing Liquid. Put the oven trays and racks in the tub and leave them for a couple of hours, or even overnight. Afterwards, rinse the bakeware with some warm water while using a scouring pad before wiping them dry with a clean kitchen cloth.
Mix 1 part Snap® Heavy-Duty Concentrate from Snap® to 3 parts water in a bowl. Use an old pastry brush and spread the solution evenly along the interior of the oven, making sure to include the back, sides, corners and door. Preheat the oven to 250 F (121 C) and then turn off. Keep the oven soaking with the solution for 10–15 minutes, and then wipe clean with a sponge. Then use a glass scraper to remove tough stains from the door and floor of your oven.
Grab a basket and gather all the clutter that doesn’t belong in the living room, such as shoes, toys, etc. Fluff the couch cushions and, if you have a leather couch, grab a damp rag and spot clean the surface with Snap-All Purpose Natural Concentrate. If you have carpet, grab the vacuum cleaner. For floor boards, mop the surface with Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate. Next, mix 28 ml of Snap Heavy- Duty Concentrate with 340 ml of water in a spray bottle. Spray onto any blinds and wipe off with a clean, dry cloth. Rinse cloth as necessary.
The big spring clean is finally complete; hooray! Now it’s time to reward yourself. Indulge in delicious treats, binge-watch your favourite TV series or simply go for a walk and enjoy the spring weather.
