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.

As a home seller, receiving the first offer on your residence can be an exciting experience. However, the initial offer on your home may prove to be insufficient for a number of reasons, including:

1. The offer fails to meet your expectations.

Ideally, a home seller will allocate the necessary time and resources to fully analyze a house before adding it to the real estate market. This will enable a home seller to establish realistic expectations for his or her house and price it accordingly.

Conducting a home appraisal offers a great starting point for a home seller to determine the true value of a residence. This appraisal ensures a home inspector will examine a residence's interior and exterior. Then, the inspector will provide a report that details a house's strengths and weaknesses.

With a home appraisal report in hand, a home seller should have no trouble establishing a "fair" price for his or her residence. And if an initial offer falls short of this price, a home seller can politely decline the proposal and wait for additional offers.

2. The homebuyer has submitted a "lowball" proposal.

In some instances, a homebuyer may submit a "lowball" offer in the hopes of acquiring a terrific house at a budget-friendly price. If a home seller cannot differentiate between a reasonable offer and a lowball proposal, he or she risks missing out on an opportunity to optimize the value of a residence.

An informed home seller should examine the prices of available houses that are similar to his or her own. By doing so, this property seller can see how his or her residence stacks up against the competition and map out the home selling journey accordingly.

Moreover, an informed home seller will mow the front lawn, trim the hedges and do whatever it takes to enhance a house's curb appeal. This home seller likely understands the importance of making a positive first impression on homebuyers, and as a result, will perform assorted home exterior improvements to help reduce the risk of receiving a lowball initial offer.

3. The offer does not correspond to the current state of the housing market.

For a home seller, it is essential to work with a real estate agent who can provide full details about the current state of the housing market.

A real estate agent can help a home seller differentiate between a buyer's market and a seller's market. Plus, this housing market professional can provide honest, unbiased recommendations about whether a home seller should decline an initial offer on a home.

Many real estate agents are available in cities and towns nationwide, and these housing market experts are happy to help home sellers in any way they can. If you employ a real estate agent before you list your home, you can reap the benefits of unparalleled guidance at each stage of the home selling journey.

There is no reason to settle for a subpar initial offer on your residence. Instead, consider a first offer closely, and you can make an informed decision about whether to decline or accept it.
