Cleaning your home is a boring and tiring thing. Spending your quality time on cleaning the place during the weekends after a weeklong work is a big no. That is why hiring a maid service is the best option to do away with all the stress and finish up the cleaning in a professional manner at the same time. Yet again, if you had the time and patience to do the house cleaning chores on your own, the tips given below will come handy in the process.
There is a high chance that you may be using cloths to do the dusting; if so, it is time to change that practice now. You can use a feather duster instead for more efficiency especially in case of dusting picture frames, hard to reach areas, and the window blinds.
Removing Soap Scum
All this time you might have been trying to remove soap scum using a sponge. A better idea would be to make use of a plastic putty knife to scrape it off, just as a professional maid service would do. In addition, you can switch from bar soaps to gel soaps or synthetic liquid for preventing any future buildup of soap scum, and thereby, save your cleaning time.
Cleaning the Smelly Disposal
This is simple; all you have to do is to drop orange or lemon peelings down the drain to quickly clean smelly disposals. After that, run the disposal for 15 seconds with water moving in half-pressure, then put in some ice cubes, and turn it again. When done, put the lid over it, fill up the sink halfway with water, then pull out the lid, and let the water flush off the disposal.
Shiny Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is indeed stain resistant; however, it gets dirty with fingerprints and smudges easily. A solution to this problem is to clean stainless steel sink and countertops using a cloth dampened in mineral oil. The mineral oil increases resistance by repelling water and prevents sticky things from being attached to the stainless steel.
Use Magic Erasers
Magic erasers are made of melamine foam and they can be used to clean almost every type of surface, from the floors to the ceiling. It can be used on tile, laminate, and wood, and are capable enough to get rid of anything from stains and grime to pastel marks.
