During the lockdown, many of us have kept busy doing household chores. One of the best-known brands, when it comes to helping keep your house spick and span, is Addis. In this guide, we take a look at products which will bring you one step closer to the title of ‘Master-cleaner’.
Keeping our homes germ free has never been so vital for us all. The Addis ‘new ways’ and ‘mini-makeover campaign’, which we launched at the top of the year, was all about helping us to de-clutter and improve our personal spaces better, through small, cost-effective changes. Fast forward to today and little did any of us know that these themes would never be more relevant.
Chemical-free cleaning and essential cleaning tools
For the times when traditional cleaning staples cannot be easily obtained, or for those consumers who want to take a more natural approach going forward, this set of 4 micro-fibre cloths by Addis lift dirt effortlessly. Each fabric is designed for a different task in the home. The ‘all-purpose’ is perfect to use with both traditional or natural cleaning products, or indeed just water alone, to clean and disinfect surfaces effectively. Again the ‘polish’ and ‘dust’ cloths can be used dry or with a product. And the ‘glass’ cloth is brilliant for multi-use to both buff and shine for brilliant results.
