8 Shocking Cleaning Agents You’ve Always Had in Your Home

Imperial Cleaning Services Logo

It may shock you to know that you don’t always have to drive down to a store to purchase cleaning products. And the fact that eco-friendly cleaning agents are pretty hard to find would make you want to scan your home for cleaning agents that you would not have believed existed.


Your teeth are not all a tube of toothpaste can clean. The abrasive effect of toothpaste can also be used on a good number of other surfaces. It can be used to defog mirrors, buff metal surfaces, and even wipe off grouts to keep your home sparkling clean.


When you think of bread as a natural sponge with excellent absorptive properties, you can begin to see its unique cleaning properties. So, instead of wasting that leftover bread, you can use it to dust and wipe surfaces, clean off marks, and soak up liquid spills around the house.

White Vinegar

You might know a thousand recipes you can prepare with vinegar. But you may not know that a solution of one cup of white vinegar, salt, two cups of warm water mixed into a spray bottle is about the greatest weapon you have against tough stains.


Yes, your delicious ketchup is also an excellent cleaning agent. By only applying it to your silver, brass, or copper surfaces, and polishing the surfaces with a wet cloth after a while, you can have your surfaces shine all day long.

Baking Soda

Baking soda thrives just fine in both acidic and alkaline conditions, making for an ideal cleaning agent. Hence, a mixture of baking soda and water is all you need to get your surfaces, and utensils as clean as new.

Leave some baking powder and water mixture on the surface to be cleaned for about one hour, and then rinse or wipe off with clean water. You can also eliminate odor from your carpet with baking soda. Just dust a generous amount of baking soda on your carpet and then vacuum after 4 hours.


That bottle of mayonnaise standing in your kitchen isn’t only useful for salads. Your wood finishes can also benefit from it since it is composed mainly of oil. Apply a little mayonnaise to food stains and spills on your wooden surfaces, and then wipe the surface clean. You can also remove glue with a minimal amount of this delicious kitchen ingredient, but remember not to let mayonnaise sit on your surface for long.

Olive Oil

Oils are primarily made of fat and are highly effective in polishing and maintaining surfaces of different finishing. With just a little olive oil on a clean cloth, you can polish your wooden and stainless steel surfaces and keep all your leather materials in good shape.


Besides being an active sterilizing agent, vodka can also be used to eliminate bad odor from your home. Dilute odor and sugar-free alcohol with water, and then use it to remove stains, spills, and odor from your walls and floors.
