Get it done before you go

As the warmer weather approaches seasonal house cleaning becomes necessary for numerous reasons, the least of which is to prepare your home for you and your family taking off for that long-awaited vacation. If your family is like ours, you spend a lot of time making preparations and reservations for your getaway. In addition to packing your suitcases and making accommodations for the family pet, it is also important that you give your home thorough cleaning before you depart. Coming home to a clean house will make your post-vacation transition so much easier. Consider the following areas to focus on when cleaning your home before you leave on your vacation:

  • The kitchen
  • House plants and aquariums

Green cleaning your toilet

Green cleaning the dirtiest spot in your home

People rarely want to hear about using green cleaning products for the toilet. This is because most people consider cleaning toilets to be the dirtiest and the most dreaded task in the home. Hence, they often seek out the most toxic and corrosive chemicals available for this task; sort of the equivalent of nuclear germ warfare. Hopefully, those who desire a more eco-friendly approach will be encouraged and enlightened by this article. Few will disagree that no area transforms so drastically, because a dirty toilet is disgusting, yet the porcelain bowl looks so nice when it sparkles.

Careful with green products

Pickling vinegar is a little more concentrated than regular white vinegar. However, if you choose to use the commercially available acetic vinegar, you need to be VERY CAREFUL with the eco-friendly vinegar. Be sure to wear gloves, and do not splash it on your skin.

Green cleaning the toilet

To start out:

  • generously spray the bowl, sides, and tank with vinegar or a vinegar/peroxide mixture
  • let it sit for a few minutes
  • wipe dry with a clean, dry rag

Be careful not to cross-contaminate surfaces by using the rag for anything else afterwards. Keep in mind that if you have a varnished wooden seat and lid, vinegar can etch the finish. Do not let the vinegar sit too long after spraying; then wipe it up with a dry rag.

Green cleaning tips for your Charlotte home

Making a dirty situation worse

Many homeowners are beginning to see the wisdom and benefits of green cleaning for their home. We use countless cleaning products in our homes and offices, on dishes, to polish furniture, clean clothes, and even to freshen up the air. In our pursuit of cleanliness, we may actually be making things worse.

Most of the conventional cleaning products we have used for decades are petroleum-based and present health and environmental concerns. We have come to be very comfortable with cleaning products that annihilate everything in their path, but there are natural products and safer methods to keep a house clean and fresh-smelling without the use of dangerous toxins.

 

Green cleaning products make sense

Even the manufacturers of cleaning products see the wisdom of providing a healthier, cleaner way to protect our health and environment:

 

  • The positive impact of green cleaning products has become more thoroughly understood
  • More and more brands are producing healthy, green, and effective cleaning products
  • These new products are non-toxic, biodegradable, and comprised of renewable resources.

 

However, you also have cleaning products already in your cabinet without the need to buy brand name or designer labeled products. Simple vinegar and baking soda can be used to clean nearly everything. Mix them in some warm water you have an effective all-purpose cleaner.

 

Employ a green house cleaning service

For people who do not have the time to regularly clean their own homes, there are an few green cleaning services out there to help get things spic and span. If you can’t find one in your area (or their rates are outlandish), call around until you find a service willing to use the products and methods you specify.

House cleaning: When was the last time you cleaned your stove?

Is your kitchen as clean as you think?

When it comes to house cleaning, some items look great on the surface, but if you look closer, it may not be the sparkling project that you believe it to be. Our homes are full of blind spots that we will never really recognize until we do our deep cleaning in the spring or in the fall. One such area is in and around your kitchen stove. The next time you have some time, pull your stove out. The first thing you might notice is a buildup of greasy slime that has dripped down the sides of the range unit.

Cleaning up that old, dried, rancid grease can be a considerable task. The grease may have hardened to the point you can only remove it some serious elbow grease and a green scrubbing pad. You will need to use a quality de-greaser, and may need to soak the surfaces by spraying them and letting it sit for a few minutes. This type of house cleaning is not the most fun thing to do. Cleaning grease and scum from around your stove can get to be pretty disgusting, but it has to be done. If you do not have the stomach for this project, perhaps you should consider calling in a professional housekeeping service to help you get caught up with all the hidden areas in your home.

Deep clean my Charlotte home for the holidays

Holiday surprises

Like countless others in Charlotte, I am preparing to deep clean my home for the holidays. Two things are sure as we are in the final stretch of the grandest time of the year: There will be some gifts that we never saw coming, and there will be guests that we never expected to visit. The reality is that you probably will not be able to do all the cleaning you would like to get done in the next few weeks. Many of us forget that this is a tough time of the year to get carpet cleaning scheduled. Many carpet cleaning businesses have been booked up since Thanksgiving.

Daily maintenance

The best approach is to deep clean 1 to 2 rooms a day, starting with the rooms that are most important to you. Just as important as deep cleaning, is the establishment of some ground rules to your home in good shape after all your hard work. This will also alleviate the chance of being unprepared for unexpected guests. Before any members of the household engage in fun or outdoor activities, they must have completed the following daily checklist:

Assign a family member to focus on tasks like dusting photographs and wiping finger prints off furniture. You will find it much easier to keep your home looking clean for the holidays.

Quick cleaning for unexpected guests

You need to know how to clean the house in 10 minutes; the answer to your problem is to hire maid services so that your home will be less likely to fall into such sloppiness, but for now, the following tips will help you avoid embarrassing revelations at the next family gathering:

Pick a main room – If you are lucky enough to have a den and a living room, pick the cleaner of the two. You will need to choose one area to entertain your guests. Most of your cleaning efforts will be made in this area.

Hide the clutter – Take a plastic trash bag or a duffle bag and make a quick sweep removing clutter and junk from surfaces of tables, TVs, and other furniture. Do not worry about sorting anything… just grab all the clutter. This means frozen food containers, dirty dishes, clothing, and paperwork. Hide the bag in a closet, the garage, or in another room and close the door.

Grab a dishtowel – Spray it with furniture polish or with an all purpose cleaner. Wipe down the surfaces of the places where you just removed the clutter.

Freshen the air – Spray some clean smelling air freshener. A fresh smell goes a long way towards changing perceptions, making the room feel clean and inviting.

Bathrooms are critical – The bathroom is the only other part of your house that it is guaranteed that your guests will visit. Give it the once over with a scented multipurpose cleaner and a cloth. Sinks and toilets are high priority, and then the mirrors. Sweep clutter into a drawer or hide it in a cabinet. Close the shower curtain or door and take the trash.
