It’s a well-known fact by now that when it comes to Home Cleaning, vinegar can be your best friend. It has so many uses, from tackling stains to getting rid of foul smells. Another thing that vinegar is great for is taking care of your indoor plants.
Growing an indoor herb garden on your kitchen windowsill can be rather exciting. You really do get a sense of achievement when you finally get to harvest and use your home-grown ingredients for cooking dinners.
However, a lot of care must be taken during the entire growing process, especially when the plants are still young. If you give them too much water you may notice white fuzz on top of the soil, which could spread to the plant and eventually kill it.
While using diluted white vinegar for Home Cleaning is very effective against mould on kitchen and bathroom surfaces, the acidity is a little too strong for indoor plants. Always make sure that you’re using apple cider vinegar for treating indoor plants and killing fuzzy mould in their soil!
Apple cider vinegar is also useful for killing pests that might try to eat your plants, and it gives the leaves a glossy finish too!
Simply follow these Home Cleaning tips:
Create a solution that consists of one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and four cups of water in an empty spray bottle. Give it a good shake so that the ingredients mingle together nicely.
Give the leaves and soil a gentle spray until they are visible damp. Remember not to overdo it as too much moisture is what invited the mould to surface in the first place!
Get a paper towel and blot the mould away from the plant.
Come back to the plant in the morning. If the mould is still visible then treat it again. If this simply isn’t working then your plant could have a disease and will need expert treatment.
If you hire a cleaning agency you could ask if their home cleaners can water or treat your plants on a regular basis. For more advice about Home Cleaning call 020 8884 9144
