Bleach is one of the most useful household products out there. But the tragedy is that most people are unaware of its many different uses. Bleach can be used to kill weeds and it can also be used to get rid of mold and mildew in the home. It not should be merely relegated to the laundry room lest it go to waste. By learning how to properly and strategically utilize bleach, you can save a considerable sum. And who wouldn’t want to; considering the economy we are faced with these days. With this is mind, here are the six best ways to use bleach:

  1. In the bathroom. Bleach is the perfect killer of mold and mildew. If you are looking to get rid of residue in grout, bath tubs, and tiles and shower walls, bleach is your answer. It is also useful for cleaning porcelain.
  2. In the kitchen. Some food stains are remarkably stubborn and in these types of situations, a spoonful of bleach can be your knight in shining armour. This can help remove water spots on glasses as well as add sheen to other types of glassware.
  3. In the bath. If you are looking for a safe alternative to harsh types of cleaning products for your child or pet’s toys, you are looking at it. Simply add ½ cup bleach to a gallon of warm water. Throw in a spoonful of dish soap as well.
  4. In the yard. If the weeds in your bathroom are particularly hard to get rid of, they may have just met their batch with undiluted bleach. But it can only be used in areas where there is no grass or other types of plants as the bleach can kill other plants.
  5. On concrete stains. If there are stains on the concrete outside your house that won’t budge with other cleaning products, try using bleach and a stiff scrub brush instead.
  6. In the lawn. Bleach is quite helpful for helping cut flowers last longer. Add ¼ teaspoon to a vase of water to prolong the life of flowers as bacteria growth is curbed.
