Organizing Your Cleaners: Cleaning Services Culver City Share Tips And Tricks

Cleaning services Culver City - organizing cleanersThe irony of having an abundance of cleaning supplies in your home, ranging from common household products to the more pricy cleaners, is that they can create an unsightly disorder in their own right. Clever organization of your cleaners will not only help you use available space in a more rational way, but also make cleaning much easier and more time-efficient. In fact, organizing your cleaning supplies is an essential part of an efficient cleaning routine. Professional cleaning services Culver City are another way to go, and here they share what years of experience have taught them – preparation is key.

Declutter and narrow down

Just like with your personal hygiene and beauty products, you probably have cleaning supplies you use on a daily or weekly basis, those you never use, and those you don’t even know you have. Another problem is they are probably scattered all over the place, or, even worse, jumbled together.

First things first – get rid of all the nearly empty containers and the cleaners well past their expiration date. Throw away any brooms or brushes that have been rendered practically useless over the years. They are inexpensive and should be replaced on regular basis for health reasons alone. Decluttering will ease your mental burden and narrowing it down to the essentials will make sorting and organizing them easier.

Categorize and tuck away

Depending on the storage space available, the easiest way to categorize your cleaning essentials is to have separate containers, say, a box or a bucket, designated for all the tools and products used in a certain room of the house. For the lucky ones with generous living space, having a neatly organized closet is an answer to all the questions, as you can put the cleaning supplies for each room in it.

For the rest of us who cannot afford to keep the supplies out of sight in such an effortless way, here’s a few helpful ideas:

  • a hanging shoe holder – put it behind the door of your closet or bathroom and you’ll have everything in plain sight;
  • bins and baskets under the kitchen/bathroom sink – use the back of the cabinet doors to suspend them and store kitchen or bathroom cleaning supplies right where you need them;
  • hooks – attached to the back of the cabinet door, you’ll be able to hang all your cleaning gloves and cloths;
  • a DIY pegboard – decorated to your liking and installed on the wall, it is great for getting brooms, dust pans and mops out of the way;
  • wire shelving – hang them behind the door of your closet to create ample storage space;
  • tension rods under the sink – hang all the spray cleaners and you’ll get extra storage space below.

Cleaning Services Culver City to the rescue!

Enjoy your time at home and never again be forced to spend an absurd amount of time merely prepping for house cleaning, only to feel  worn-out halfway through.  Cleaning Services Culver City spares you the dirty work and leaves your home spick-and-span. Call us today and let us make your life easier!

Five Cheap Cleaners You Probably Have in Your Home Right Now

Natural Cleaners - Cleaning Service AnaheimGetting rid of stains can be a real nightmare, especially strong ones, like from wine or blueberries. Still, we sometimes reach for insanely expensive cleaning products which offer dubious result, when there are simpler and more readily available solutions around us. We wrote about alternative household cleaning products before, but here are a few others, some of which might actually surprise you.

Salt

The slightly abrasive nature of the salt makes it ideal for cleaning kitchenware. If you add a little lemon, you can create a paste which rivals even the most expensive kitchen cleaners, for a fraction of the price and with none of the toxic chemical residue. This lemon-salt combo is also brilliant in getting your countertops a thorough cleaning as well, getting rid of both the dirt and the unpleasant smells in the process.

Club Soda

Club soda had been the irreplaceable go-to stain solution for our grandparents and parents. But somewhere along the way, we got sidetracked by the shiny new products which don’t really do a better job, but have better marketing. Many stains can be removed from clothes or carpets by only using club soda and a bit of good ol’ rubbing. Additionally, club soda can serve as an excellent gem and jewelry cleaner. Oddly enough, club soda proves great with rust, so you can spray a bit of it on rusty nuts and bolts, to loosen them.

Rubbing alcohol

This substance is known to all who have suffered sports injuries or have muscle problems. Despite its less than pleasant smell, alcohol has many redeeming qualities. The one we will focus on here is the ability to clean a lot of stains. Alcohol is a solvent, so it is good with cleaning smooth services, like glass, mirrors and tiles. Even more impressively, you can clean ink stains with rubbing alcohol. Pen, marker or inkwell, makes no difference. Alcohol will dilute the ink and make it much easier to wash in warm water, with or without detergents.

Sand

Surprisingly for many, sand was used to clean kitchenware and stone floor long before chemical cleaners were in fashion. The key to the success of sand as a cleaner is its abrasive properties. Today we may use steel wool as a way to scrub the food stuck to the dishes, but before the industrial times, and the general availability of such accessories, sand was the go-to material. Brass is known particularly to be given the sand treatment to achieve high sheen.

Beeswax

Natural beeswax combined with linseed oil was used to polish the wood furniture as well as wooden floors prior to the advent of artificial chemical cleaners. In fact, any and all wooden surfaces in the house could only benefit from a polish of beeswax. The practice of using beeswax for polishing wood still exists, and is making a comeback, with the rising awareness of the negative impact of chemical cleaners on the planet. Other uses of beeswax include treating bronze and copper items, waterproofing leather, and myriad other uses around the house.

Alternative: Cleaning Service Anaheim

These cleaning products are useful if you have the time and the patience to use them properly. Sadly, most of us have very little time to tend to such things. That’s why maid services like Maid This! offer great terms for the best cleaning service in Anaheim and other parts of Southern California with our flat rates, so you always know what you are getting.

I definitely think that as a company we've been able to make more money, not only because we're saving money by using Maid This, but also because they're helping take a few of the necessary evils with doing vacation rentals off of the property managers plate.
