Are you looking for the best way to clean your blender or freshen up your sponges? Then Kompleet has put together five of our best tips!

Top Tip One: Cleaning a blender
We all love a smoothie but cleaning a blender is a perilous activity at best. The tedious task essentially involves sticking your hand into a bowl full of knives and hoping for the best every time you try to remove the remnants of smoothie from your blades.

But it’s actually easy to remove that stuck-on gunk. Just pour some warm water, baking soda, and washing-up soap in your blender, and blend it for a few seconds. When you’re done, give it a quick rinse with clean water or toss it in the dishwasher to get it squeaky clean.

Top Tip Two: Freshen up your sponges
Sponges can easily become dirty and germ ridden, so give them a bit of a refresh by sprinkling over a small amount of lemon juice and then popping them in the microwave for two minutes. The heat will nuke germs and you’ll be left with a fantastically fresh-smelling sponge. Do make sure your sponge is metal-free.

Top Tip Three: The power of vinegar
Vinegar is a good all-rounder and is excellent for everything from shifting limescale to cleaning windows or your fridge. To use it as a cleaner, mix it with equal parts of water. Don’t use your best balsamic, though. White vinegar will do the job perfectly. If water stains on your glasses is the problem, use the 50 50 mix of vinegar and water, apply it to the water stains, and let it sit for 15 minutes or so. Once the vinegar solution has had time to break down the debris, use a toothbrush to scrub the scum away, give the glass a rinse, and wipe the surface clean.

Top Tip Four: Cleaning the sink
The constant wear and tear we put on our sinks often means they look less than clean, even after they’ve been thoroughly wiped down. If you want to get your sink spotless, after cleaning your sink with an antibacterial cleanser, polish your taps and handles with some wax paper. The wax in the paper will also repel water, preventing future stains from taking hold.

Top Tip Five: Embrace bicarbonate of soda
Bicarbonate of soda is super versatile and will clean almost anything. It works a treat on rust and is also great for cleaning your oven and fridge. A small bowl of it placed in the fridge will remove odours, too.

Fed up of a stinky bin? Sprinkle in some bi-carb to eliminate odours – add a couple of sheets of newspaper as well, as this will soak up any leftover moisture.

Another great use is freshening up mattresses. Often neglected when it comes to cleaning, mattresses will also benefit from bicarbonate of soda. Simply sprinkle on, leave for at least an hour, then vacuum to reveal a super-clean bed.
