Time Saving Cleaning Tips

As the summer swings into full bloom so does the activities: barbecues, bonfires, and sunset swims. While we are all enjoying the high temperatures and friendly company, we often neglect properly cleaning our homes.

Some TIPS to expedite your cleaning routine.

1: Use Lemons!

Take ½ a lemon and rub on stainless steel fixtures and faucets. This will polish and clean, just wipe down with a micro-fiber cloth.

2:  Use baking soda and vinegar

To remove a stain like blood from your carpet, fill a spray bottle with baking soda and white vinegar. Blot! DO NOT RUB! You want to remove/lift the stain by blotting, rubbing will only dig the stain in deeper.

3: Say "Adios” to water rings

Ever have a guest come over who didn’t use a coaster? Well, all you need to do is set full-fat mayonnaise on the ring and let sit for 1 hour. Gently wipe clean the surface area and ring is gone!

4: Want to keep the same quality of carpet over the years?

Although is it vital to the health of your home and family to service your carpetsprofessionally ever 6-12 months, there are ways to extend the life of quality carpets besides professional services. Use a Welcome Mat at every entrance to your home or office. The mat will act as a receptacle for large particles stuck to your shoes that would otherwise damage carpet after repeat exposure.
