Both cleaners you have sent me have been terrific, when the first cleaner left, she was replaced immediately, I will definitely be recommending your company to my colleagues.

It’s a joy to come home on Friday evening after my cleaner has been round to clean! I’ve recommended Cleanhome to neighbours and colleagues as I feel that they provide excellent level of service at a reasonable price.

Cleaning tips for students

For many people living in student accommodation is the first time living away from home. This shared accommodation experience is not always glamorous though. We’ve come up with some great cleaning hacks and some cleaning essentials we believe all students should know about. 


Essential Cleaning Products – 


Antibacterial wipes –

These are a great time saver and space saver as you don’t need sprays and multiple cloths.

Microfibre cloths –

Much better than disposable cloths as they can be reused as well as being able to be used for both dry dusting or wiping/washing surfaces using sprays

Bleach –

Having a good bottle of bleach with an easy pour nozzle is often a great help when cleaning the toilet as not many people ever want to touch their toilet bowl

Bin bags with ties –

Many people underestimate the value of having pull-able tabs or handles which make tying a bin bag up so much easier. The little extra you need to pay for them is worth it for the reduced hassle. 

Baking soda –

Baking soda has so many different applications in cleaning it is almost a no brainer to get it. From scrubbing the kitchen side to removing powerful lingering smells in the fridge, baking soda has so many uses


Cleaning tips


Old Toothbrush –

An old toothbrush has many different applications in cleaning such as cleaning the grout in between tiles or getting dust and grime out from laptops or keyboards.

Lime juice –

If your tap is running badly and spraying water everywhere all you need to fix this is a lime. By halving the lime and using the squishy side to scrub the tap it should run nicely.  Shine up the rest of the tap using the remaining lime in a similar process.

Water and Vinegar –

If your microwave is caked in dried food, fill a bowl with a mixture of water and vinegar and microwaving it on full power for approximately 10-15 minutes. The mixture should start to evaporate and loosen any food particles meaning they can easily be wiped off. 

Dryer sheets –

Freshen a bad smelling room by simply taping a dryer sheet over the air conditioning or a vent, allowing air into the room and watch as the smell is lifted. 

Old socks –

When dusting, old socks are a great replacement for extra cloths as they will pick up dust very easily and can get into more spaces as you can just cover your hand with the sock.


These are just some of the easily cleaning tips and products you should have to clean with. The key to keeping a shared house clean is communication and everyone doing their part. An alternative is to hire a professional cleaner. Cleanhome offers high quality cleaners at an affordable price. For more great tips and tricks keep an eye out on our social media pages and our blog section.

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.

COVID-19 Announcement


Firstly, we sincerely hope you and your family remain safe and healthy in these extremely worrying times.

I write in respect of the business fee as we are asking all clients who miss any cleans to keep a record of them. We can then ensure you are refunded any business fees paid over this time for the cleans that have been missed.

As the cleaners work directly for you it is up to you whether you wish to retain their services at this time and we support wholly any decision you make. We also ask that you follow up to date government advice to keep both yourself and your family safe, as well as the cleaner.

The government advice is that people are being allowed to travel to and from work, but only where that work can not be done from home. This means that your cleaner can continue to clean for you should you wish, but that government guidelines on social distancing must obviously be observed.

Most of our clients are continuing with their cleaner, however others are asking that we put the cleaning on hold for the moment, which we are also very happy to do - we will support your wishes to the very best of our ability and will ensure that any of the missed cleans get either refunded or ‘banked’ – whichever you prefer, and we guarantee you will not lose out financially.

Both the cleaners and myself are self-employed. We are a small, local business and we will continue to do our best for both our clients and cleaners in these challenging times. Our office will be open as usual and we appreciate the continued support of all our valued clients.

In return we would like to offer our assistance, if any is needed, to all our clients at this very difficult time, and in particular to our older clients who may be self-isolating. If there is any help that we can provide in any way then please, just give us a call and we will do everything we can to help.

If anything good comes out of this terrible situation, then it’s that we all need to look out for each other, and we are very happy to play our part.

Stay safe and well 😊
