Cleaning Before (and After) Christmas

Christmas is approaching and many of us wants to clean the house before having people over for all the Christmas gatherings. Afterwards, we have to clean the house again. In other words, a lot of cleaning needs to be done in December, so why not make it as easy as possible?

Deep Christmas Cleaning

Christmas is the perfect reason for a thorough and deep cleaning of the house. Especially the kitchen is used during the holidays, therefore a cleaning of the kitchen before and after Christmas is not only a good idea, it is necessary.  

Clean the kitchen drawers, shelfs etc. with a universal cleaner and wipe with a clean, dry cloth.

Cleaning the fridge with Sterling Refrigerator Cleaner

The fridge really gets into overtime at Christmas, therefore a clean fridge is necessary in order for the delicious Christmas food to last better.

Sterling Refrigerator Cleaner cleans the fridge, microwave and cooler bag hygienically and removes defrosting and bad smells.

Empty the refrigerator, microwave or cooler bag and spray the refrigerator cleaner on the inside.

Distribute the refrigerator cleaner with a soft damp cloth and let the cleaning fluid work for a few minutes. Then wipe the cleaning fluid with a damp clean cloth.

Cleaning the oven

The oven is also used a lot during Christmas, so a deep cleaning before and after Christmas is in its place.

Sterling Oven and Grill Cleaner easily and efficiently cleans the oven and baking trays – also at Christmas. Shake the can carefully and hold it for approx. 20 cm from the surfaces and spray the foam out in an even layer. Let the product work for approx. 20 minutes until the foam becomes liquid or dries. Wipe with a wet cloth or sponge. Baking trays and grates are washed thoroughly with water.

In case of heavy coating, the treatment is repeated.

Using Sterling Oven and Grill Cleaner is the easiest way to clean the oven.

How to remove burned-on food from pots and pans

Something that is most likely to happen during all the Christmas preparations is that food is burned-on. Burned-on food can be difficult to remove unless you know Sterling Soda. Soda is used for several different purposes, including water softening, dishwashing and laundry. But soda is also very effective on burned-on food in pots and pans.

The pots and pans are easily cleaned with 1 dl of soda per 1 liter of water. Set to boil on  the stove.

Remove stains from tablecloths and textiles

At Christmas, we bring out the nice silverware, tableware put on the tablecloth etc.. Everything looks pretty until someone spill on the tablecloth, which is almost inevitable. However, the more spills the better the party, or something like that.  

So, what we need to concentrate on is to remove them as easy and gentle as possible. What product should you use then? It depends on which kind of stain it is and the type of fabric the stain is spilled on.

Red wine, coffee and tea is best removed with Sterling Glycerin (see instructions below).

If the entire tablecloth needs cleaning, Sterling Textile Cleaner Spray is perfect for the job. Apply the cleaning foam and rub with a sponge or brush. Let the foam work until the fabric is dry, after which it is brushed or vacuumed thoroughly. If necessary, repeat the treatment.

If the stain is fruit colour, Sterling Citric Acid is the product to use. 1 part Citric acid is dissolved in 9 parts of water, after which the stain is rubbed with the solution. Leave on and wash the tablecloth.

How to remove stains from red wine

Effective removal of red wine stains is Glycerin. Glycerin is effective for the tannic acid found in red wine. Rub the dried stain with glycerin and let it work for 12 hours. Then wash off with soap and water. It’s that easy.

Remove stains on clothes

Just like on the tablecloth, there is a high risk of stains on the clothes during Christmas. It can be stains from makeup, typically on the collar, and grease stains from the food. In either case, Sterling Glycerin is a must have.
