It’s time to trash some of those housecleaning remedies that have been passed down for generations—yet produce iffy results or, worse, create more work.
Myth: Vinegar cleans everything.
Fact: Vinegar can cut through dirt and can kill bacteria, but the acid in it can damage natural stone and wood surfaces. Most people like to mix it with baking soda to scrub some stubborn stains but tend to forget that this grainy mixture could damage the surface. When it comes to effective cleaning, use specialized products only. Our TWX Home® collection got you covered.
Fact: Nope. We recommend allowing any cleaning solution to sit on the surface for 10-15 minutes. Always follow the directions on the product’s label. Some solutions need time to truly kill bacteria.
Myth: Coca-Cola can tidy up drains.
Fact: Coke sure isn’t “it” when it comes to unclogging drains and toilets. Coke is acidic, so it could be somewhat effective at removing stains, but for best results trust a quality product that is able to dissolve waste without harming the drains. TWX Home Drains® Gel for Clogged Drains is at the moment the best product that will save you time and money.
Myth: Bleach cleans everything.
Fact: Bleach actually doesn’t ‘clean’ anything—because it doesn’t remove soil. It can lighten stains, making things look cleaner. It does kill bacteria, so it’s a decent sanitizer, but do you really wanna put up with this horrible stench? TWX Home®’s products, however, can effectively clean all of your surfaces leaving them fresh and in perfect condition.
Myth: Fragrant scents = clean
Fact: You might think that if something that smells fresh and good, it’s clean, but don’t let your nose fall for this cleaning myth. Just because a product is labeled as “fresh laundry” or “clean spring air” doesn’t mean that it actually removes dirt and germs. TWX Home®’s products contain only active cleaning ingredients and do the dirty work without leaving traces or smells.
Myth: The Exhaust Fan is Maintenance-Free
Fact: It may not look dirty, but it’s a good idea to regularly clean out the bathroom exhaust fan. The fan can get dusty, which may prevent it from effectively preventing mold and mildew. With this one, TWX Home Tiles® Tile Gap Cleaner works like magic. It easily cleans small areas and exterminates mold.
