Cleaning On a Schedule

temp-post-image

I know it sounds a little crazy but we all have a schedule to keep when it comes to cleaning up the house. We have all heard mom say as a kid “Bring your clothes down its laundry day.” As it turns out mom was right cleaning on a schedule is one of the best ways to stay on top of things. As we know with any schedule things can change but you may want to try something like this

Week 1

  • Monday – Clean Floors
  • Tuesday – Clean Stove
  • Wednesday – Clean Toilets
  • Thursday – Laundry
  • Friday – Vacuum
  • Saturday – Miscellaneous
  • Sunday - Day off Clean Nothing

Week 2

  • Monday – Clean Tub and Showers
  • Tuesday – Clean Sinks
  • Wednesday – Clean Oven
  • Thursday – Laundry
  • Friday – Windows
  • Saturday – Windows
  • Sunday - Day off Clean Nothing

One thing you’re doing laundry every week to help keep that under control. Laundry can pile up real fast if you are a family of 3, 4 or have a baby in the house so we recommend doing it every week.

If you do one thing a day or two things a day it really helps and helps relieve the pain of cleaning the entire house. You notice certain chores a...

Tide Pods Making Laundry Easier

temp-post-image

Tide Pods are the new innovation in the laundry world. I would like to point out that Tide owns trademark name Pods just like Velcro owns the name. The Tide Pods are designed with the laundry detergent contained within a compact water-soluble packet that dissolves with the laundry cycle. You simply throw Tide Pods into the bottom of the washer and then add the clothes on top

Unfortunately, Tide Pods have been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately but from a strictly cleaning standpoint, they are a great choice. Tide Pods are about 50 percent more, per load then bottled liquid detergent. When looking at the Tide Pods you are paying for the convenience factor. The pre-measured doses provide consistent results. For people with dis...

Sometimes your white tub is well not so white anymore due to use and hard water. To turn you tub white again the best thing to do is bleach your tub every so often. The general rule is to use four cups (one liter) of bleach for a full bathtub. Make sure the windows and fan are on in the bathroom for safety bleach can be very potent.

Fill the tub with hot water. As the tub fills add the bleach. If you have a tub with jets check manufacturers manual some recommend closing the air controls during cleaning with bleach.

The Swiffer Wet Mop is a great cleaning tool one we recommend for customers that want to keep their floors shiny in between house cleanings. The Swiffer Wet Jet solution sprayer combined with the Swiffer wet sheets are great for getting rid floor blemishes like food, mud and pet stains. Both sides of the mop have a rough sponge for getting rid of those dried-on stains with the help of scrubbing and a spray of the floor cleaning solution. The Swiffer Wet Mop is a great addition to your cleaning tools and is essential for keeping your house spotless on daily basis.

Scrub Daddy Review

The Scrub Daddy is a great sponge for doing household cleaning. The unique design is great getting firm in cold water and getting soft in warm water making it able to clean any surface. The Scrub Daddy was featured on season 4 of Shark Tank and was also featured on Beyond the Tank. Regular sponges get smelly and fall apart after a few uses the Scrub Daddy holds up much better not smelly, and not falling apart. The only con about the sponge is that it requires the re-application of soap more frequently than a traditional sponge I'm guessing because it's more porous and does a little harder cleaning, so it goes through more soap.
