TWENTY-TWENTY has a landmark ring to it. The start of a new decade prompts bigger-than-usual thoughts about the future, many predictions have been made throughout the years, some make some sense like by 2020 we will have full synthetic human brain, robotic moon bases, chips implanted in our brains to control devices via microchips, others that are more hilarious like all roads will become tubes, mail will be sent via rocket, and that we will all have a robot to do everything for us. We all know that we are close to some predictions, but for now let’s see about getting ready to start the new year with a great plan.

Holiday is Here!

 

‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice, crowded malls. But did you know that December is packed full of holidays and occasions, like Hanukkah, National Roof over Your Head Day, Poinsettia Day, Winter Boxing Day, Kwanzaa and New Year’s Eve. With all these Holidays who has time for cleaning.
Whether you like to clean or not, you must admit that there’s something magical about making your home sparkle this time of year. Maybe it’s all the wine?
But how about the guests? I say! Its not like you are cleaning for no reason you know aside from having a clean home. You’re organizing because your coworkers are coming over. Your vacuuming because your baby nephew will be scooting around your floor. Your scrubbing your counter tops because you are about to prepare a major feast in the kitchen, those impending plans just make it all worth it. You know you will have fun and people might even shower you with complements when they see how clean your home is.

That is why you should give us a call to schedule your home cleaning. We have custom cleanings and we also have organizing services available and if you are thinking on getting on a regular schedule, we have special promotion just for you. Give us a call to book a custom clean or to get you on a on ongoing schedule.

 

Dish Washer Cleaning Tip:
Every four weeks fill a dishwasher- safe mug or bowl two-thirds full of white vinegar and place it on the top rack of your dishwasher. Run the dish washer on a normal cycle with hot water for extra sterilization. The vinegar will help with loosen scum, food particles, and grease from the dishwasher walls and racks. After that it all washed down the drain. That’s all you need to do.

Thanksgiving Season

 

Thanksgiving is the season for sharing what you’re grateful for with your loved ones. Also not only does Thanksgiving require hours of cooking, you have to clean the house for guests too! You’ll be too busy to clean every corner, closet, and bedroom.  Plan ahead and tackle big projects first, then focus on cleaning the rooms that your guests are going to see and spend time in. Here is our thanksgiving cleaning checklist:

Two Weeks Ahead: Tackle any organizational tasks or things that will stay relatively clean for 2 weeks

Clean the refrigerator to make room for Thanksgiving food.  Be ruthless!  You’ll need the space.

Clean out a coat closet if you plan on hanging guest’s coats there

Do any outdoor chores: raking leaves, etc.

Wash any serving dishes or utensils that haven’t don’t get used regularly

If you are using special china or glassware, wash and polish

If you have any cluttered areas you don’t want guests to see, organize them now

One-Week Ahead: This is the time to do a really deep cleaning so that the house will be just need a quick touchup the day before

Thoroughly dust, paying extra attention to window sills and other places guests might lean and talk

Vacuum, and sweep: See our Floor Cleaning Guide for help

Use a brush attachment on the sofa and other upholstered furniture.  Have a microfiber couch?  Clean it up.

Clean windows in dinning room, kitchen, living room and any glass in the front door

Wash and iron any tablecloths and napkins that have been stored for a while

Deep clean bathrooms guests will be using- sink, toilet, shower, tub, mirrors, and floors.  Don’t forget to dust!

Thoroughly clean the oven and stovetop and exhaust fan- you’ll want to have a clean range for all the cooking you’ll be doing

The Day Before Thanksgiving: Touchup Time

Touch up the bathrooms- wipe mirrors, the top of the toilet, an the faucet

Touch up dusting, vacuuming and sweeping- it shouldn’t be too bad since you did it a week ago

Run and empty the dishwasher

Set the table- if you don’t need to use the dinner table for cooking preparation, set it the day before so it will look nice for arriving guests and you’ll have one less thing to do

Put out any candles or decorations

Thanksgiving Day:

Put out fresh towels in bathrooms

Take out the trash before guests arrive- it will be full after all the cooking

Wipe down the stove

Clear away countertops- guests congregate in the kitchen

While Thanksgiving is a lot of work, it is also very rewarding to spend time with friends and family in a festive atmosphere.  Taking the time to clean ahead of time will help you enjoy the cooking and socializing without being stressed or embarrassed about your housekeeping.

 

Here are some great cleaning tips for green cleaning lovers.

1.) Baking Soda

This is the work horse of your home, buy in bulk for extra savings

Shower- spray walls and floor with vinegar, sprinkle with baking soda, make a paste and scrub

Toilet- Use instead of toilet specific cleaner- just pour 1 cup in bowl and start cleaning

Clean drains and unclog pipes:  To keep drains running clear, simple pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down drain and follow with hot water. to Clear a clog: use a cup and bucket to bail any existing water out of your sink.  Pour 1/2 cup baking soda into drain, use a spatula to force it in there if you need to.  Pour 1cup vinegar down the drain and quickly cover the drain with a drain cover to force the vinegar and baking side to the clog.  Hold it in place until the fizzing stops.  Uncover and flush drain with boiling water.

Soak pots and pans with burned on food in baking soda in water to make scrubbing easier

2.) Vinegar

Dishwasher- Add 1/2 cup to the dishwasher and run it empty to keep it fresh and clean

Showerheads- Grungy shower head? Pour vinegar into a plastic bag, secure it to the neck of the shower head and leave it overnight. Rinse clean in the morning.

Windows- Mix equal parts of white distilled vinegar and warm water. Dry with a soft cloth.

 

Fall Cleaning Tips

Some housecleaning and home maintenance chores need to be done once a week, biweekly or monthly. Others seasonally. And still others just once a year.

The problem is, we often don’t get to them, or else we add them all to our spring-cleaning list. And that doesn’t happen, either.

A better way: spread all the housecleaning and home maintenance tasks out over 12 months. 

Here’s the October house cleaning checklist that works best for fall cleaning.

  1.    Fall cleaning seasonal view:

Clean the windows in your home now, before winter weather sets in.

Clean your windows before winter sets in.

  1.    Cold cure:

Caulk around windows to keep the warm air in and the cold air out. 

Not only will you be more comfortable, but you’ll save on energy bills, too. 

  1.    Second line of fall cleaning defense:

Put up storm windows and doors.

  1.    And finally…

Get started preparing your home for the chilly winter season ahead. 

Fall is the perfect time to begin thinking about  winterizing your house.

  1.    Help with the hose:

Get the kids to help you drain and Store the garden hose

  1.    Fall cleaning closet case:

Tidy up closets and store summer clothes.

 

  1.    Holiday prep 101:

Launder and iron holiday linens. Now is the time to begin preparing for holiday entertaining.

  1.    Holiday prep 102:

Clean crystal, china, and silver.

  1.    If it’s time to set the clocks back…

It’s time to change smoke alarm batteries. 

  1.    Top brass: Shining up is your final October house cleaning checklistchore.

Shine up brass doorknobs and other metallic objects.

 

Tri Maids Offers Many Different Cleaning Packages, Including Organizational Cleaning. We Can Help With Whatever You Need Or Want Done! Let Us Help You Get Your Home Ready For FALL.

 

3 HOME MADE WINDOW CLEANING TIP:

3 Home-Mixed Solutions 

  1. Home Mix Solution for Lightly Soiled Windows

This homemade lemon-cleaner recipe works wonders on lightly soiled windows: Mix 4 tablespoons of lemon juice in a gallon of water. 

  1. Home Mix for Moderately-Soiled Windows

Try this vinegar window cleaning solution for moderately soiled windows: 1/4 cup vinegar in 3 cups warm water. It’s terrific for quick and thorough cleaning of medium soils.

  1. Cleaning Mix for Seriously Grimy Windows

For serious window grime, try an extra-strength ammonia formula: 1/2 cup ammonia, 1 pint rubbing alcohol and one teaspoon dishwashing liquid. Add enough warm water to make a gallon.

CLEANING TIP:

Beat and Shake Area Rugs

Vacuum large area rugs at least once a week. But also take them outside three or four times a year for a more thorough cleaning and forhow to clean dust. Drape them over a fence or clothesline and beat them with a broom or tennis racket. A good beating removes much more dust than vacuuming. Take smaller rugs outside to for a vigorous shaking every week.

7 Ways To Clean Stainless Steel:

  • Olive Oil – Keeps Appliances Smudge Free

First, spray some Vinegar & wipe it down with a soft cloth (an T-shirt works too). Then, pour some Olive Oil onto a soft cloth & rub the oil into the grain. Use a clean dry cloth to buff the steel after applying the Olive Oil. Some of the oil will be removed, just enough will stay on to prevent smudges & fingerprints.

  • WD-40 – Removes Grease & Grime

Use a soft microfiber cloth to wipe away stains after spraying.

  • Coconut Oil – Adds Shine To Appliances

The tiniest amount of Coconut Oil will make it shine, use a soft cloth to buff with the grain.

  • Pledge Furniture Cleaner – Polishes Appliances

Spray a heavy coat of Pledge, use a soft cloth to swirl the solution into any stains. Let sit for a few minutes before wiping away (using a circular motion).

  • Baking Soda & Vinegar – Removes Burn Stains From Pans

Scrubbing burnt-on stains with a sponge & Baking Soda (this may be enough to remove stains from pots & pans). If not, boil a solution of 80% water & 20% Vinegar, in the stained pots & pans. Boil for about a minute before pouring the solution in the sink, adding more Baking Soda & scrubbing more.

  • Flour – Polishes Stainless Steel Sinks

First, clean the sink with some hot & soapy water, make sure the sink is dry before using Flour. (Not drying completely will leave a huge gooey mess). Sprinkle Flour all over sink, use a soft cloth or paper towel to buff the steel. The flour will get into any grooves in the steel & absorb dirt & grime. Wipe up the flour with a soft damp cloth, repeat if your sink needs to shine more.

  • Baking Soda, Lemmon Juice, Olive Oil & Vinegar – Removes Water Stains

Combine ¼ cup of Vinegar, ½ cup of Baking Soda, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, &  tablespoon of Olive Oil to form the paste. Use a soft cloth & rub into the steel appliance (using circular motions to really get the mixture in). Let sit for about 10 minutes, then wipe off with a soft cloth.

Homemade Daily Shower Spray:

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup of Hydrogen Peroxide
  • ½ cup of Rubbing Alcohol
  • 1 teaspoon of Liquid Dish Soap
  • 1 tablespoon of Dishwasher Rinse Aid (like Finish Jet Dry)
  • 3 cups Water

Instructions:

  1. Begin pouring Hydrogen Peroxide, Rubbing Alcohol, Liquid Dish Soap, & the dishwasher rinse aid into a spray bottle of at least a 32 oz size. (A funnel is very helpful for this step).
  2. Next, add 3 cups of water (the mixture might bubble a little bit because of the dish soap).
  3. Put the top back on the spray bottle & then shake the ingredients together for a minute.

To Use:

After showering, mist the spray on the shower doors & walls of the shower and you’re done! There’s no need to wipe!
