Cleaning with water can be really effective in some cases and can be a great deal because you don’t have to pay for it as much as you actually pay for cleaning products, right? But even though it can be one of the most powerful cleaners out there, it isn’t always the best choice when it comes to certain household items, because it does more damage than good and you don’t need that in your life right now.
One of the best features of water is that it can be a universal solvent, due to its ability to dissolve a lot of substances, making them more effective, but you should avoid it when you need to clean some surfaces in your home.
So, you should avoid water entirely when cleaning these household items. Read on for more info!

Thank you SO much for this information!! I’ve been cleaning some things ALL wrong, but now I know!! Just the other day, we had trouble with our stove
burner not working. But guess what??? I had cleaned it with water!!! No more!
Learned the same lesson. 🙂
Very informative and practical. Merci beaucoup.
I am a silk dying artist. I use water all the time to clean silk items. The key is total immersion. You are right though that spot cleaning will leave water stains. Silk fibers are just about the strongest out there short of kevlar. I wash silk clothing in the washing machine and dry on delicate cycle. Heavier silk clothing though does better with dry cleaning.
