An eco-friendly cleaning is the best way to do it. Eco-friendly products leaves the apartment fresh, clean and bacteria-free with no harsh chemical residue or smell.

Sneezing, coughing and blowing of nose, a playground for virus to multiply. Therefore, an apartment is a safe-haven if you do not clean and sanitize. Places such as door knobs, light switch, fridge door handle, microwave handle are key areas of contamination.


Mandy’s Eco-Friendly Green Cleaning 5 simple tips to keep your home bacteria-free after getting a spring cleaning.

Mops and cloths are breeding ground for bacteria and each time you wipe it spreads.

Soak mop in vinegar and warm water (not hot). The acetic acid in the vinegar is a good disinfectant, effective against such harmful bugs as E. coli, Salmonella, and Staphylococcus.

You can do the same with cloths and then leave them to dry.
