Easy Cleaning: The Right Products and Tools

Share this:

When it comes to cleaning your home, it can be a discouraging task. After all, clothes, dishes, and bedding are continually dirtied. Shelves attract dust, floors collect dirt, and crumbs seem to grow on counters. Then, there is the bathroom…a place where scum builds up into a concrete form nearly impossible to remove.

There is Hope

If the task of cleaning seems a tedious and never ending chore, take heart. There are ways you can make this task less burdensome. It may still seem a chore, just less of one. Cleaning may continue being something you hate, but hey, if that is the case, you can always give us a call so we can do the work for you.  🙂

Easy Cleaning

Buy the Right Tools and Products

If you suddenly became interested in jewelry making, you would go out and buy yourself supplies and tools. Or, if you wanted to train for a marathon, you would buy clothing, shoes, and books to help you achieve the goal.

When it comes to our hobbies, interests, and goals, often we fork over money without a second thought.

House work is something nearly everyone will spend hours of their life on, and yet, how often is money spent purchasing supplies and tools to make the task easier?

The right products and tools can make a world of difference when it comes to cleaning the home. I encourage you to invest in the right products so as to make this literally never-ending task less burdensome.

PRODUCTS

There are a ton of cleaning products available. When it comes to easy cleaning though, less is the better option. Consider the following next time you are out buying cleaning supplies.

Multi-purpose Cleaner

There are some surfaces which require special cleaners, but for everything else, buy one cleaner that can do it all. This will save you time.

Goo Gone

When it comes to removing stickers or other stuck on gumminess, Goo Gone is an excellent product. In the past few weeks this product has become a very close friend for several projects.

Stainless Steel Cleaner

The right products can make a world of difference. If you are tired of seeing your fridge covered in fingerprints, it may only require changing your brand of cleaner to experience the results you desire.

 

TOOLS

Bucket

Whether you use a bucket, basket, or some other container, keep your cleaning supplies together in something you can carry from room-to-room. This saves time from running around to various closets and cupboards looking for the right cleaner.

Microfiber Cloths

When it comes to cleaning glass and mirrors, results after using a microfiber cloth are crystal clear.

Toothbrush 

Whether you use an actual toothbrush, or, a small stiff bristle brush, these tools make cleaning those hard to reach spots a breeze.

 

This is a small list of the many that can make cleaning an easier task. For now, I hope this list aids you in decreasing the amount of time you spend cleaning your home. Time you can spend learning a new skill, curling up with a good book, or, spending time with family and friends.

2018: The New Year

Share this:

 

 

The New Year is upon us!

Let the Adventure Begin!

I love a new year with its fresh start, new beginnings, and the opportunity to look back over the past year.

For Pristine, our family cleaning business, 2018 finds us beginning this new adventure of making Toledo, Ohio and the surrounding areas cleaner. We are ready and excited to travel this adventure as a family working together.

A lot of work goes into starting a cleaning business before cleaning takes place. Time for preparation and planning has come to an end. January now finds us going out into the community making it a cleaner place. With tools of the trade in hand, we are ready for this next phase.

Whether you too are starting your own business, focusing on family, resting from an illness, or going after any number of goals, may this be an excellent year for all of us.

Happy New Year from Our Family to Yours!

Tidy Home for Christmas: Seven Tips

Share this:

 

Are you dreaming of a tidy home this Christmas? Here are seven tips which can help you turn that dream into a reality. I do not know about you, but when it comes to staying organized, I find it a constant battle. Unfortunately, clutter and stuff have a tendency of becoming the victor. How is it after decluttering and simplifying, everything seems to multiply? It is as though there is a clutter monster who throws stuff back into my closets, drawers, and rooms the moment I turn away. This seems to be truer during the times I would most like to sit back and enjoy time spent with family and friends.

With the Christmas season upon us, and the new year approaching, the fight against clutter can be one of discouragement.

Not only is a cluttered house an inconvenience, it creates stress. Have you ever found yourself avoiding a drawer, closet, or even room? The place (or places) that become storage of stuff often become places we never venture to see.

If you find yourself avoiding a part of your house, or dread having people over, the following tips are meant for you. This time of year should not be one of discouragement and stress, instead, it should be peaceful. You should be free to enjoy the company of family and friends.

The following seven tips can help you regain your sanity and find you the victor over the clutter and mess

 

1) Be Consistent with Laundry

Unfortunately, laundry is something that never ends. After all, the only way to stop it would be to never change, or, wear disposable clothing. Neither of which I recommend. In fact, no, just please, no. Laundry is a fact of life. The more members in your family, the more laundry. Grumbling about the matter will not help. And so, the only answer is to stay on top of this task before it grows into great mounds.

Rather than having a predetermined day of laundry, do a load when there is a load. It is far easier to start a wash of towels between other activities of your day than it is to fit in ten consecutive loads. That itself is a depressing and overwhelming thought.

While reading this, you may be considering your own heaping mounds of laundry awaiting your attention. In that case, go toss a load in and begin getting caught up. From there you can get in the habit of doing laundry as a load worth is ready.

 

2) Straighten up the Couches

A simple step to keeping the house looking tidy is plumping the pillows of your couch and nicely folding the blankets. There is something about a rumpled couch that leads to further untidiness and mess. Avoid additional mess by keeping your seating area looking company ready.

 

3) Keep the House Dusted and Vacuumed

Dusting, vacuuming, and sweeping gives an overall clean feeling to the entire house. Not only do you feel that your house is clean, but performing these duties encourages you to tidy up just a bit more.

 

4) Clear the Kitchen Sink

A kitchen sink full of dishes lends itself to filling the counter space as well. If you have a dishwasher, get in the habit of rinsing off your dishes and placing in the dishwasher immediately. If you are the dishwasher, at meal times fill your sink with soapy water making cleaning up a simple task.

 

5) Make those Beds

A common theme in this article is that mess leads to more mess. A rumpled bed encourages more untidiness which leads to clothes scattered on the floor, closet doors left open, and stuff lying about. The daily habit of making the bed can help stop the path of untidiness.

 

6) Put Coats and Shoes Away

When it comes to a messy house, it is often begun by those simple, daily habits, left undone. Coats and shoes being one of the culprits. By getting into the habit of putting these items away your house will look that much cleaner.

 

7) Take Care of the Mail

When you bring the mail into your home, go through it once. Do not set aside bills to get to when you feel like it…after all, do you ever feel like making the call, writing the check, or getting online to pay? I doubt your answer is “yes”. When you open the mail, take care of it and be done. You will be very happy once it is over. Allowing the task to hang over your head is just discouraging.

 

There you are, six tips to help you enjoy a tidy home for Christmas. Standing alone, these tasks require little time or effort. It is when they pile up that they become overwhelming and lead to further mess.

Tackle these tasks and get into the habit of taking care of them before clutter and mess grow.

On waking, make your bed. Before turning in for the night, straighten up your couch. Wash and put dishes away as used. Find a day that works for dusting and vacuuming and make sure it happens. Hang up your coat and put shoes away when coming indoors. When you open your mail, take care of it, and be done.

May these tips aid you in having a tidy home, allowing you to enjoy a relaxing Christmas!
