Cleaning the house

The complex interrelationships are clearly using examples:

Active chlorine may be used up to a temperature of 40 ° C, otherwise pitting corrosion occurs . In addition, any system can be well pre-cleaned because chlorine has a high protein error , ie the effect is significantly decreases in the presence of protein.

With the use of peracetic acid is taken into account that it is highly corrosive and thus in manual handling can not be used.

Although the quaternary ammonium compounds ( QACs) have low toxicity and are compatible with the material , but have a cold error ( = at low temperatures are higher concentrations necessary ) and a protein error ( = the presence of proteins decreased the efficacy of chemical disinfectants). They also recently came into the headlines because some agents ( DDAC , BAC ) can be used from the group in pesticides and hence the EU Regulation 396/2005 ( MRL Regulation ) subject.

Considering the processing of fruit and vegetables , it can be assumed that with proper cleaning much of the microorganisms is removed mechanically already in the cleaning phases. In many processes are germ reduction of 3 log 10 – log 10 4 (ie, from 99.9 to 99.99 % of the bacteria are removed ) is obtained, so that subsequent disinfection is not required, for example, in crates.

For sensitive foods, such as fresh-cut products, subsequent disinfection is necessary. This ensures compliance with the microbiological standards and ensures the shelf life of the products.

Cleaning windows with a window sucker

Cleaning windows is always an annoying issue, especially stripes on the glass and dripping water can bring a shine to white heat . Window sucker to because supposedly help the relatively new devices are supposedly a huge relief washing windows. We had last week for the first time, a window sucker in hand and want to report here our first experiences.

Window sucker Test – Lierferumfang and commissioning.

For this test, we have the Karcher WV 50 Window sucker made ​​us plus . The equipment in the Kärcher typical yellow looks at first glance very high quality of the processing of stable plastic is top notch. Included with the package besides the actual window sucker a spray bottle with the wiper attachment and microfiber cloth, 20ml glass cleaner concentrate, the 280mm wide suction nozzle, the lithium-ion battery and wall charger. Also included with the instructions.

Remove the impurities from the carpet

First of all, you can remove the burned portions of the carpet. For this purpose,use a wire brush. Their rough material allows the removal of damaged sites. Subsequently, the affected area can be washed . This can be trusted on old-fashioned household recipes either, as would be the use of lemon juice.

Alternatively, a special textile shampoo in trade can also be purchased separately , with which then the body is washed out. This should then first familiarize themselves with the fire area to let then dry the whole and later to clean with a vacuum cleaner.

The second way to combat cigarette burns in the carpet, the lamination of the affected area. For this, the burned part is simply covered with the original color of the carpet so that the burn mark still exists, but little or not noticeable. Here, you can indeed be quite creative and reconstruct the gray of the carpet , for example with a mixture of cigarette ashes and wood glue.

Before plotting the whole thing on the carpet, the result should be initially tested in a corner of the carpet and very small areas . In addition, of course, colors can still be applied , which are actually intended for the wall or other surfaces . Again, however, we recommend a prior test run, to protect themselves against nasty surprises. Special carpet color does not exist, however.

Ultimately, it can still help to simply replace the affected item in the carpet. In this case, you cut the burn with a carpet knife from the floor to then replace it with a part of the same carpet. However, the prerequisite is that you still have pieces of this rug has or can obtain. This piece can be fixed with a carpet adhesive on the edges then , that exchange of not more likely to attract attention.
