Cleaning with vinegar is quite simple. It can either be used full strength, or be diluted with distilled water. If you are planning on using vinegar as a cleaner in a client’s home however, it is best to inform them of this first, as some of them may not be too keen on the idea, and would prefer a store bought cleaner to be used.

Some may also have concerns about the odor of the vinegar, and any lingering smell that may be left behind. You can easily assure them though, that the natural smell of the vinegar will fade in a few hours, and you can also add a few drops of an essential oil, such as lavender or peppermint, to the diluted mix which will completely eliminate any vinegar smell.

Vinegar can be used to clean almost any surface. Kitchen counters, bathtubs and bathroom fixtures, porcelain and laminate flooring, they can all be cleaned with vinegar. It is best to use a diluted mixture of approximately 2/3 vinegar and 1/3 water so that the mixture is not harsh, however you can use full strength vinegar on some surfaces such as faucets, door knobs and counter tops, which are all prone to germ build-up.

If you are going to be using vinegar to clean a clients home, you should be aware of what materials vinegar should not be used on, to ensure that you do not damage client property. The last thing that you want to do as a professional cleaner is damage a homeowner’s belongings, and show a lack of knowledge and professionalism.

Do not use vinegar to clean hardwood floors and fabrics. You should also use extreme caution using vinegar to clean painted surfaces or areas that have been wallpapered, as the vinegar can damage the surface.
