Applying a wax or finish to a floor creates a glossy, protective layer that keeps your floor attractive and free from scratches and stains. However, over time these layers wear down or become dirty, and need to be removed before a new one can be reapplied. Follow these instructions to learn how to complete this process from start to finish, but be sure to follow specific instructions on the label of your floor finish stripper, floor wax, or floor finish.

There are a number of ways to get your ceramic tile clean. Engage in regular maintenance to prevent grime and grit from collecting on your ceramic tile. Sweep (or vacuum) and mop your ceramic tile at least once each week. If your tile is stained, you should identify the specific substance or agent of the stain, then choose an appropriate remedy. If you’re facing a particularly obstinate stain on your ceramic tile, consider steam cleaning or a muriatic acid solution.

Wash the mop. There are different kinds of mops, each of which will need different kinds of cleaning. Cleaning the mop head helps eliminate bacteria that can grow when the damp fabric or sponge sits after cleaning.

  • If you have a cotton mop with a removable mop head, you can throw it into the wash with towels on a warm wash. Avoid using fabric softener so it doesn’t get on the mop head and make sure you use high heat and the delicate cycle when drying.
  • If you have a sponge broom with a removable head, you can remove the sponge head and clean it in the same manner sponges, as described below. These should be replaced once a month.
  • If you have any mop without a removable head, soak the mop head in a bucket with equal parts water and vinegar for 30 minutes to an hour. Rinse it and lay it out to dry.

Clean your broom. Your broom works hard to remove dust and trash from your house, but these things often get stuck in your broom. Once a week, take your broom outside and beat it against a hard surface. This will dislodge any dirt or dust from the broom. You can also comb through the bristles to remove hair, trash, or anything else stuck into the bristles.

  • Once a month, soak the broom in a solution of warm water and dish soap for an hour or two. Remove the broom and rinse it, then let it dry completely before using it again. You should also wash the dustpan at the same time.
  • You can also use the vacuum to clean the bristles if there is deep ground in dirt.
  • If you own a corn or straw broom, avoid soaking it because it will weaken or break the bristles.

Sanitize the vacuum. The canister or bag in your vacuum should be cleaned often. If you have a canister vacuum, empty the trash every time you use it to keep down germs and smells. The canister should also be washed gently with soap and water and dried before adding it back to the vacuum. If you have a vacuum that uses bags, empty the bag as soon as it gets full and wipe out any excess dirt from inside the vacuum.

  • The vacuum filters should be cleaned every three months. Run the filter under hot water to remove the excess dust and dirt that has accumulated. Make sure you let it dry completely before you put it back in the vacuum or it can damage it.
  • You should also remove vacuum attachments and wash them with hot, soapy water. Rinse them well and let them dry for at least a day before you reattach them. Do this at least twice a year.
  • The powerhead brush along the bottom of the vacuum should be cleaned periodically. Hair and trash often get wrapped around the tube of the brush and can cause problems if it builds up. Use scissors and your hands to pull out all the debris trapped around the powerhead

Sanitize the toilet brush. One of the dirtiest places in your home is the toilet, which means the toilet brush often needs sanitizing. To wash your toilet brush, soak the brush in a mixture of 2 cups of white vinegar, 1 tablespoon of borax, and ½ teaspoon of dish soap. Let the brush soak for at least 30 minutes before you rinse it thoroughly.

  • Clean your brush each time you clean the toilet and replace the brush every four to six months.

Clean additional brushes. Other brushes you use while cleaning, such as scrub brushes or small detail cleaning brushes, also need to be sanitized. First, remove any stuck in debris or hair from the brush bristles. Next, put all your brushes in a large bucket and soak them in a solution of hot water and your favorite sanitizing product (such as bleach). Let the brushes soak for 30 to 60 minutes. Then drain the solution, rinse the brushes, and remove them to fully dry.

  • Do this at least once a month or after a particularly thorough cleaning.

Sanitize sponges. Sponges get dirty very easily while cleaning up messes. To sanitize your sponges, rinse your sponges to get all possible dirt and refuse from them. While still wet, place the sponges in the microwave and heat them for two minutes. Remove the now extremely hot sponge carefully and run it under cool water, then let it dry.

  • You can also place the sponge in a small bowl of water instead of just on the plate in the microwave. Remember to remove the sponge from the water with tongs since the water will be very hot.
  • You can also clean sponges in your dishwasher if it has a sanitize cycle. If it doesn’t, use the microwave method.
  • If your sponges have any metal parts, do not microwave it. The metal will catch fire in the microwave.

Pick out as much slime as possible from the carpet fibers. Use your fingers to grasp and pick up bits of slime out of the carpet. Removing as much slime as possible before cleaning the carpet will make it easier to clean the stain.

  • Keep in mind that the slime may have bonded with the fibers of the carpet, so you might not be able to get all of it up with your fingers.

Mix 6  fl oz (180 mL) of white vinegar and 3  fl oz (89 mL) of water. Vinegar is more effective at removing slime stains than water alone or even other carpet cleaning products. Pour the vinegar and water into a bowl, and stir to combine them.[1]

  • Another option is to put the solution into a clean spray bottle and spray it onto the stained area.

Apply the solution of vinegar and warm water to the slime. Pour the solution over the slime stain to saturate it. You may need a little or a lot depending on the size of the stain.[2]

  • For example, if the stain is over a large area of the carpet, you might need the whole batch of solution. If the stain is only about 1 in (2.5 cm) wide, then you may only need 2 fluid ounces (59 mL) of the solution.

Use a soft-bristled brush to get the slime out of the carpet. Rub the carpet with the brush to work the vinegar and water solution into the carpet. If you pull up any extra bits of slime with the brush, pull or rinse them off the brush before continuing. Then, continue rubbing the stain with the brush.[3]

  • You can use a carpet brush or a clean dish brush to do this.

Blot the area with a clean dry towel. When all of the slime is off of the carpet and the stain is partially lifted, begin blotting the area with a clean, dry towel. Press on the towel with your hand or step on it to blot the carpet.[4]

  • Keep blotting the area until the carpet feels mostly dry.

Repeat until the stains are gone. Repeat the process as many times as needed to get the stain out of your carpet. After you have removed the stain, let your carpet air dry for a few hours and then run your vacuum over the area to reinvigorate it.[5]

  • The stain may not be visible again until after the carpet dries, so make sure to check it.

 

Scrape any stuck-on slime off of the clothing. You can use your fingers to remove bits of stuck on slime, or carefully scrape it off with the back of a butter knife. Just make sure to get as much of the slime off of the clothing as possible before you begin washing it.[6]

  • If the slime is really stuck on, stick an ice cube on it for a few minutes and then try to remove the slime. Making the slime cold should make it easier to remove.

Spray or pour on a stain removal pre-treatment product. Spray a stain removal product directly onto the stain, or pour a bit of detergent directly onto the stain. Either way, this will help to loosen the stain.[7]

  • Make sure that the stain remover or detergent completely covers the stain.

Put the items into a large bucket and fill it with hot water. Place your pre-treated clothing into a clean, empty 2 to 3 US gal (7.6 to 11.4 L) sized bucket. Then, place the bucket under a faucet, such as in your bathtub or sink. Run the water until the bucket is filled almost to the top.[8]

  • If you do not have a bucket, then you can place the items in a clean plugged tub or sink.

Soak the clothing for 30 minutes. Leave the clothing in the bucket to soak for 30 minutes. You don’t need to agitate the items or do anything else during this time.[9]

  • Make sure to place the bucket somewhere out of the reach of children and pets.

Put the clothing into the washing machine. After 30 minutes have passed, take the items out of the bucket of water and wring out the excess water over the bucket. Then, place the items right into your washing machine and wash them as you normally would.[10]

  • Make sure to follow any special instructions for the items if they have them. For example, if the item requires a delicate cycle, then select this option on your washer.

Air dry the items. After the items are clean, remove them from the washer and hang them up to dry. Don’t put them in the dryer just in case you need to wash them again. Machine drying the items may set in the stains.[11]

  • Hang the items somewhere that is well-ventilated. You may also want to turn on a fan and direct it towards the items to speed the drying process.

Repeat the process as needed. If the stains are still visible, repeat the process. Keep repeating this process until the stains are completely gone.[12]

  • This could take a few times depending on the severity of the stain.

Remove the excess slime from the furniture. Use your fingers or the back of a butter knife to get the slime off of a piece of furniture. Press the back of the butter knife against the furniture and move it in 1 direction to scrape up the slime. Discard any slime you remove.

  • If the slime is really stuck on, then you can chill it with an ice cube or ice pack, and then try to pull off the slime bits.
  • Don’t use the serrated part of a knife or even a sharp, flat-edged knife on your furniture or you may damage it.

Pour some distilled water onto a clean cloth. Distilled water is less likely to discolor furniture because it does not have the same minerals that tap water does. Pour enough distilled water onto a clean washcloth to get it wet, and then wring out the excess water.[13]

  • If water alone is not strong enough to remove the stain, you can try blotting with a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar. However, make sure to test this on a discreet place on the furniture first since the vinegar may discolor certain types of fabric.

Blot any visible stains with the damp cloth. Place the damp cloth onto the stained area and press on it with your hand. After pressing it once, pick it up. Then, turn it over or find a clean section of the cloth on the same side, and press the clean section of the cloth onto the stain again.[14]

  • Keep doing this until you have removed the stain completely.

 

 

Remove any remaining slime with your fingers or a credit card. If there is still a blob of slime sticking to your wall, make sure to remove it before attempting to clean the slime stain. Otherwise, you may end up spreading the stain to other parts of the wall when you are trying to clean it.[15]

  • If you cannot pull the slime off with your fingers, use an old credit card to scrape the slime off of the wall. Push the credit card against the wall just above the slime and move the card downwards while still pressing the card against the wall.

Make a paste of baking soda, water, and vinegar. Since slime stains on a wall can be especially stubborn, it is best to create a paste of baking soda, water, and vinegar to remove it. Mix together 4 tbs of baking soda, 1 tbs of water, and 1 tbs of vinegar. This should form a thick paste that you can apply to the stain on the wall.[16]

  • If the paste is too thick to spread, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of water to thin it. If the paste is too thin, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of baking soda to thicken it.

Place a paper towel on the floor below the stain on the wall. Place a paper towel under the spot on the wall where you will be placing the paste. This will help to protect the floor below the stain in case any of the paste drips down.[17]

  • You can also use old newspapers to protect the floor.

Put on rubber gloves and use your fingers to apply the paste. Don’t handle the paste with your bare hands since it may irritate your skin. Put on a pair of rubber gloves and then begin caking the paste onto the stain with your fingers.[18]

  • Make sure to coat the stain evenly to ensure that the paste will have the maximum effect.

Let the paste dry for 2 hours and brush it off with a paper towel. The paste should be dry after about 2 hours, but it might take more or less time depending on the amount of paste you apply. Once the paste is dry, you can use a dry paper towel to gently brush the paste off onto the paper towel that you placed on the ground.[19]

  • Throw away the paper towel with the baking soda paste when you are done.
  • Repeat this as many times as needed to remove the stain on the wall.
