RV Cleaning can be extremely mind-numbing. We love them but cleaning them out is such a hassle. They bring us so much pleasure outside of that though. 

 

Traveling is so much better in one. They are more comfortable than a car and more affordable than constantly buying plane tickets. You never have to worry about where you’re going to sleep or missing a flight. They offer all the comforts of a home but in a minimalistic environment. 

 

However, after a long vacation, it’s hard to get up the motivation to clean it out for the season. It’s such a small area but it gets so much traffic in and out so your RV can get messy fast! Your future self will thank you for cleaning it out now and getting it prepped for next year’s family vacation! There is no better feeling than being able to just pack up and go without the worry of cleaning. 

 

RV Cleaning Hacks:

 

Rv’s are designed to fit a lot of stuff into not a lot of space. Because of this, there are tons of nooks, crannies, vents, and crevices. Here are some cleaning hacks to help you remove all of that built-up debris. 



Pet hair

 

We love our pets, so much so that we are willing to bring them with us everywhere we go despite “no dogs allowed” signs. We may love them a lot but none of us love the hair they leave all over the country. Pet hair is a headache and can be some of the most difficult stuff to remove. 

 

We are telling you right now, don’t get Furstrated. 

 

Here are some items you can use to help you remove that stubborn hair. 

 

  1. Squeegee: Spray the upholstery lightly with water and use a window squeegee to remove the hair. The rubber on the squeegee works great at loosening the hair from where it dug itself in. 

 

  1. Latex glove: What we love about the latex glove trick is that it is just so simple. Honestly, all you do is put on a latex glove, rub the upholstery with the gloved hand and it will conduct static electricity. That will attract all the hair and small debris to the glove and voila! No more pet hair. What a cheap and easy solution!

 

  1. Pumice stone: This is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of that pesky pet hair. Pumice stones have a jagged surface that really grabs onto and removes that pet hair from the surface of your furniture. All you have to do is brush it across the surface. It will gather it all up in a nice pile for you to easily vacuum up. 

 

  1. Lint roller: This may seem like a no-brainer and it is a simple solution to this problem. Lint rollers work really well and getting that hair up. 

 

Zr Water®: A Multisurface cleaner

 

Areas that get the dirtiest like the dashboard, steering wheel, and door handles get that way because of the oils from our hands. Body oils have an acidic pH. In order to “clean” something, you need to attack it with the opposite pH in order to bring it to a neutral state. In other words, neutralize it. 

 

Our Zr Water is high alkaline water that cleans better than soaps without the use of chemicals. It leaves the surfaces in your home or RV streak-free and residue-free. 

 

Since body oils are acidic you need to “attack” them with an alkaline. Our water works great on all of the high-touch areas in your temporary home. It cleans the surface without the use of harmful chemicals and keeps it Cleaner Longer®. 

 

The problem with disinfecting wipes is that once you wipe the area, the chemical it leaves behind needs to be removed as well. Left unrinsed, the surface will actually begin to attract more dirt and bacteria than before the cleaning. 

 

This is due to the nature of chemicals. 

 

Chemicals are designed to attract dirt and oils to them, it’s how they work so well. When used properly they attract dirt and attach to it in order for it to be rinsed away. If left unrinsed they just keep attracting dirt and bacteria. 

 

Vents 

 

Speaking of nooks and crannies these are the areas we immediately think of when we hear that phrase right? It’s like they specifically design these things to be difficult to clean. Here are some relatively simple ways to get all of these little crevices. 

 

  1. Foam paintbrushes- you can find them at any craft store or isle and they are cheap. The foam bends and fits into a lot of those smaller areas. 
  2. Make-up brush- Make sure if you’re using a used one to rinse it off first. It’s a good way to upcycle and clean at the same time! 
  3. Q-tip- Since we aren’t supposed to use them inside our ears we’ve been trying to find good uses for these things! 
  4. Compressed air- Instead of trying to vacuum them with a bulky vacuum head, instead try and use an air duster. They have a small hose on them that helps concentrate on one area. 

 

Window sills 

 

Often overlooked windowsills house plenty of dust, dead bugs, and dander. The easiest way to get them cleaned is to remove all of the loose dirt first by vacuuming it. Second, spray it down with Zr Water and scrub it with a toothbrush. Use a microfiber cloth to easily wipe away the dirt afterward.
