Cleaning is one of those things that most people just want to be able to do super quickly and have it be over with. But here are 9 Cleaning Tips That Could Actually Ruin Your Stuff if you are not careful to take the time to do it right. Whenever a mess happens the first reaction is to just dump something on it, be it water, or a cleaning product. Sometimes we think that cleaning products will just do all of the work for us, but that is just not the case, usually it takes some effort on our part to bring something back to looking nice and clean again.

For example, how many times have you, or someone you know, just dumped water on a stain or some cleaning supply on it, hoping it would just dissolve? That is not the way you want to do it really, as number 1 in this article points out. This could actually further the damage and set the stain in deeper. Or how about spraying window cleaner on your computer screen or other electronics screen? I am sure we have all done this one... it cleans windows, and this is a window-like screen, so why not, right? Well there is actually ammonia in the window washing spray that can cause damage to your screen, and this article will tell you what is better to use.

I have also heard the one about cleaning jewelry with toothpaste, but this is only for once in a while, toothpaste can be super abrasive, and there are other things that can be used that will keep your jewelry looking as good as new. Another thing is using bleach too much, especially in things that you eat or drink out of... bleach is poisonous, so think twice before you use it everywhere.
