Want to make your home as clean as a superyacht? Under deck Stew revealed some insider cleaning hacks that will not only clean better but will ultimately save you tons of money.
Showbiz Cheat Sheet spoke up Sailing yacht below deck Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher on her cabin cleaning essentials. Under deck Season 6’s second stew Josiah Carter also offered a simple home remedy to clean and sanitize any surface using products most people have around the house.
Daisy’s Below Deck stews use vinegar and water for almost everything
Sailing yacht below deck Fans became aware of the “magic” of a cleaning product called Vanish when Kelliher and Captain Glenn Shephard stood in front of a stained white couch. A charter guest was lounging on the couch after using a Sunless tanning product and left a stain. Kelliher and her Under deck Onepot tried to remove the stain with regular cleaning products. But once they applied the Vanish (and steam cleaned the sofas), the product seemed to lift and remove the stain completely.
Kelliher said she always likes to have a supply of Vanish on hand. But it also cleans many surfaces with vinegar and water. “Vanish is amazing and can be used for absolutely anything, including vinegar and water,” she said. “I don’t like using anything other than that. Except for marble, because that’s what it will eat. But vinegar and water are pretty much my absolute go-to for everything.”
Vinegar and water can be used not only to wipe surfaces, but also to clean glass, reducing the number of different cleaning products. Additionally, it’s a non-toxic blend, so it’s safe to use around children and pets. The average family can easily spend $50 a month on cleaning supplies. A 128-ounce bottle of white vinegar costs about $3.00.
Below Deck stews use a cheaper alternative to freshening up the linens
Under deck Stews are often seen spraying linens with an anti-wrinkle product. The product not only removes wrinkles, but also leaves the laundry smelling fresh. A 33.8-ounce bottle of Downey Wrinkle Releaser costs nearly $8.00. And a 27-ounce bottle of Febreeze can cost around $5.44.
Kelliher saves money by making her own blend of fabric softener and water. “All the stews use Downey, it’s like fabric softener for your beds,” she said. “But it’s expensive and not always easy to come by. So a bit of fabric softener and water and you won’t have to iron your sheets anymore. I absolutely love it and am obsessed with it.” A 150-ounce bottle of fabric softener can be as cheap as $16 and has multiple uses.
Disinfect surfaces with rubbing alcohol
Below deck stew Josiah Carter offered some of his own cleaning hacks in the early stages of the pandemic when some antibacterial supplies were running low. And although his tips were designed as an alternative to empty shelves, his use of rubbing or rubbing alcohol is still a great alternative to expensive antibacterial supplies.
Carter shared that his alcohol and water mix is not only great for sanitizing, but also for removing stains and water stains from surfaces. “All I do is [one-third] Alcohol and two-thirds water,” he said in an Instagram Story video in April 2020. “And you can clean pretty much any surface. It’s great because the alcohol is sanitizing, especially with everything that’s happening you have to be extra careful.” He added, “It’s a really, really good way to get rid of any germs before you start preparing food .”
He also sometimes adds essential oils to alcohol and water to enhance the cleaner’s aroma. Carter said the oils don’t detract from the blend and are only used to add fragrance if desired. A bottle of rubbing or rubbing alcohol costs about $2.00. Antibacterial sprays can cost $3.00 and up.
