To bring back the originality of the glass, the best formula is to clean it using vinegar mixed with warm water. The corners of the windows are difficult areas to clean. Using cotton swabs makes the work effortless and saves time. Once the glass has dried, it may leave marks of wiping. Use of squeegee or cleaning in a top to bottom motion can prevent leaving marks.

The floor tiles enhance the whole interior look of the house. The shiny and polished floorings are always attractive. Maintaining the tiles may require a series of processes. First, the debris accumulated has to be vacuumed regularly. Then, if the tiles look dull, it has to be mopped with detergents to regain the polished texture on the surface. If there are any stains on the floor, wiping it with vinegar removes all the stains. People have started using homemade cleaning agents made of natural ingredients and chemicals. These are economical and aren’t hard on the surface. The use of harder tools and abrasive chemicals should be avoided. Using concentrated chemicals may affect the texture and the surface.
