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 5th January Update


Just to let you know we are open for business as usual and you can continue to have your cleaner clean your house.

The government has made it clear that cleaners are still permitted to work inside peoples' homes as long as Government Guidelines on social distancing and staying safe are followed (see below). In summary:

You can be outside of your home for work purposes where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home, including if your job involves working in other people's homes.

The full text can be found here New National Restrictions from 5 January (in England; there are similar texts available for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Specifically relating to cleaners, the guidance continues: 'This guidance applies to those working in, visiting or delivering to home environments. These include, but are not limited to, people working in the following areas:

  • 'This can include work in other people's homes where necessary - for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families, or tradespeople (this is not an exhaustive list)'

Note this guidance is for people who are fit and well, and is dependent on the following social distancing guidelines being followed:

  • No work should be carried out in a household where people are isolating or where an individual is being shielded.
  • The cleaners can continue work, providing that they are well and have no symptoms. No work should be carried out by a cleaner who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or when someone in their own household has symptoms.
  • No work should be carried out in a household where any occupants are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, or households with a possible or confirmed case of coronavirus.
  • Whilst in the house. a cleaner should maintain a safe distance of at least two metres from any household occupant at all times, and ensure good ventilation in the area where they are working, including opening the window.
  • Upon entering the home, cleaners should wash their hands using soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Cleaners should wash their hands regularly, particularly after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property.

The good news with regard to cleaning is that the cleaners can social distance from their clients very easily, and we would advise that, if you are at home when they are there, that you remain in a separate room to your cleaner.

If you are happy to adhere to the government guidelines - and if your cleaner has not been in touch already - then please just call the office and we will ensure that your cleaning continues.

Best regards

The Cleanhome Team
