Cleaning properly involves more than just wiping a cloth across a surface. You need to establish what you’re cleaning, what germs and other issues may be present, and then choose the best product to achieve the desired result. Understanding and using this information will help to ensure your cleaning is the very best possible.
Of course, there are always new products available that are designed to help you clean, not all of them are as good as they suggest, but some are really innovative and useful. Let’s take a look at the 6 most useful cleaning innovations this year.
1. Dry Ice Cleaning
Dry ice is simply frozen carbon dioxide, it has a surface temperature of-109.3°F and needs to be treated with respect. It will burn your hand if you touch it.
The great thing about dry ice is that as it warms it becomes a gas, that can be safely removed from your premises. This allows companies to use dry ice cleaning methods which are safe and extremely effective.
The dry ice used consists of thousands of tiny pellets, instead of one big block. These can then be fired at a surface. The velocity of the impact and the coolness of the dry ice causes contaminants to be dislodged, effectively cleaning in even the most difficult of spaces without any effort.
But, even better is the fact that the dry ice then becomes a gas and disperses. There is no mess to clear up and no danger of liquid touching electrical components. That makes dry ice the best possible method of cleaning electrical items!
2. Filtered Air Purifiers
It’s now possible to get an air purifier that filters the airflow, captures trapped gases, and can even maintain the temperature in a room, whether you want it hotter or colder.
This may not seem like a cleaning innovation but, the filtered airflow stops dust and other debris from circulating around the house and creating dirt as well as potential health issues.
3. The Smart Toilet Seat
This device regulates the temperature of the seat and gives you a soft glow at night to help you find the toilet! But the real innovation is the addition of a carbon deodorizer to remove odors and the ability to control the water pressure and spray area, helping to ensure the toilet is always clean without needing to be scrubbed.
4. Hands-free bin
Although not strictly speaking a cleaning product the hands-free bin does eliminate contact with waste and bacteria.
Simply stand in front of the bin and the lid will open, allowing you to dispose of your waste without touching anything potentially unhygienic.
5. The Microfiber Duster
These may not appear to be new, microfiber cloths have been used for a whole to attract dust and keep static at bay. They are extremely effective.
However, this cleaning tool has now been given an upgrade by attaching it to a flexible handle there is no area of your home that it cannot reach.
What’s so good about this is that it can be used to absorb water as well as dust and debris. It will hold 8 times its weight in water!
6. The Robot Vacuum
These aren’t new this year but they are starting to hit the mainstream simply because technology s advancing and they are becoming much better at doing their jobs.
Using safe mapping technology the vacuum can go around your home, or sections of your home, as often as you like, without you having to do anything. That is definitely going to help you with the housework.
