There are several items included in a regular home-cleaning arsenal. The common ones you would find are cleaners, vinegar, and dishwashing soap. Hydrogen peroxide is gradually becoming more popular in the cleaning industry because of its invaluable uses. If you are well informed, then you would know it's hard to beat hydrogen peroxide in price and results. Here are five smart applications of hydrogen peroxide in house cleaning.

  1. Clean cutting boards and disinfect home surfaces.In the kitchen, hydrogen peroxide can clean cutting boards and disinfect surfaces. Use it to wipe down cutting boards after use periodically. The chemical bubbles away germs, and grime left by cutting meat or fish. Hydrogen peroxide also disinfects surfaces such as countertops. Use a spray bottle to distribute hydrogen peroxide on home surfaces, then wipe down after a few minutes.
  2. Clean the toilet. A high number of germs and dirt hide on the toilet. Skip buying a separate toilet cleaner and pour a cup of hydrogen peroxide in the toilet bowl. Wait for a few minutes, then scrub and flush clean.
  3. Eliminate grout and mold. Grout and mold can develop from the build-up of moisture in the bathroom. Thankfully, hydrogen peroxide serves as an excellent cleaner to eliminate them from most parts of the bathroom. Spray a substantial amount of hydrogen peroxide on affected areas and leave to sit for a few minutes. Use a toothbrush or cloth to clean it afterward.
  4. Remove Stains. Hydrogen peroxide acts as a mild bleach. Use it to remove most stains on clothing, carpets, and furniture. Mix two parts of hydrogen peroxide to one part of dish soap and apply it to a stain with a soft brush. Allow the mixture to absorb into the fabric and sit for a few minutes. Rinse off with cold water and the stain should be gone; if not, repeat the process.
  5. Safe cleaner for toys. Unlike most cleaners, hydrogen peroxide is safe for cleaning personal items such as toys. It is not a lung irritant, nor does it cause allergic reactions in most people. Soak a clean cloth in hydrogen peroxide solution and use it to clean toys. It kills germs and eliminates dirt. 

 Hydrogen peroxide is cheap, available in almost every store, and easy to use. Upgrade your cleaning arsenal with a few bottles with a visit to the store. Clean stains out of the carpet with hydrogen peroxide before putting your house on the market.

Most individuals find choosing the right color scheme for their homes as the most overwhelming part of the decoration process. After all, you have to consider furniture, doors, drapes, and other items before you pick any color. But it doesn't have to be all that difficult. A few simple rules can see you working through it with ease.

Start with a neutral color as your backdrop and then build on by adding other contrasting colors with art and accessories. You will need to work with a color wheel and determine what color scheme of the color wheel you want to use. The monochromatic scheme involves using different shades of a single color of the color wheel. The analogous color scheme consists of using colors that appear next to each other on the color wheel to create a colorful arrangement. You may also decide to do a contrast scheme that involves using a triad of contrasting colors. For a bolder look, use the complementary scheme. Contrast has to do with two opposing colors used for the interior. 

You should also consider how the lighting will change the appearance of colors within your home at different times of the day. You may have to use sample swatch cards in the color you are thinking of using, or paint onto a card in that color and carry them around the house, testing them in different lighting conditions. Before you commit, you may even decide to paint small areas of each room to see how the colors will complement each other around the house. Having decided on the colors you want to use, you should look at how it will flow into the general design of the room. Bear in mind the kind of furniture and upholstery you either already have present in the house or you intend to purchase. Your colors have to fit in with these generally so deciding on the exact shade of color you want should come last in what you are doing. 

The entire process should not be a stressful one if you put enough planning into it. Visit with paint professionals in the paint store and ask how each hue complement each other. You can bring home as many test samples as you can until you find your perfect mix. However, at the end of the day, remember that the final decision lies with you—your color scheme should reflect you, seeing as it is your home.
