5 Everyday cleaning items that are easy to make (And work great!)

5 Everyday cleaning items that are easy to make (And work great!)

 

1. Make your own gel hand sanitizer!

1 1/2 ounces pure aloe vera (not the green stuff)

3 teaspoons rubbing alcohol

1 teaspoon vitamin e oil

5 drops essential oil – lemon and lavender are my favorites in this recipe

-Dispense ingredients directly in a small container with a lid.  Shake liberally to mix all ingredients thoroughly.  If you want your gel to be slightly thinner in consistency, add a little more rubbing alcohol, up to one teaspoon. And then it’s ready for use! Just remember to shake it before use!

 

2. Peppermint Daily Shower Cleaner Spray

1/2 cup vodka (you can use rubbing alcohol but it seems the vodka works better in this recipe)

1 cup water

10 drops peppermint essential oil

glass spray bottle

-Mix and store in a spray bottle.  Spray shower after use.  No rinsing necessary.  Other good tip: Use a squeegee at the end of your shower to remove excess water and to prevent water spots.

 

3. Foaming Hand Soap

foaming soap dispenser(s) – Easy to find or reuse one!

1-2 tablespoons castile soap (many different scents to choose from!) – I use 2 tablespoons for 8 ounces of water (the amount just depends on how foamy you want your soap to be)

8 ounces of water (or whatever size your foamer is) – use distilled water if you can, but tap water works just as good

funnel

measuring spoons

-Funnel the measured amount of castile soap into the bottle then pour water over it. Shake to mix it up and you’re done. You can also add 10-20 drops of essential oils inside to add more scents.

 

4.  Disinfecting Spray Cleaner

1 1/4 cups water

1/4 cup white vinegar

1/4 cup vodka (excellent germ-killing properties – you can substitute rubbing alcohol, but it will have a more medicinal scent)

15 drops essential oil – peppermint + lemon OR lavender + lemon are great in this recipe

glass spray bottle

 -Mix all ingredients together

 

5. Marble and Granite top Cleaner

3 tablespoons rubbing alcohol

1 1/2 cups water

1 teaspoon castile or dish soap (if you want your spray to smell like your dish soap, use that)

-Combine ingredients, close spray bottle, shake, and CLEAN!

6 Reasons You Should Hire House Cleaning Services for Your Reno Home

House cleaning services help you get more out of life.

"<yoastmark

In Home cleaning services are the best way to get more time out of the day. Today’s Nevadans are busier than ever going to the gym, earning a living, and raising a family. Some of you might be ready to have someone clean your home due to time. Yet, other Nevadans might feel guilty having someone else clean their home. We were raised to clean up our own mess. Guilt shouldn’t stop you.

Let’s take a moment to weigh your options. You could clean your floors, kitchen, bathrooms, vacuum, dust, and disinfect. However, that project at work offers a bonus if it’s completed before the due date. Monetary bonus, or a clean floor?

The mere thought of removing one of your many responsibilities from your plate should get you to dial that number or click on that free estimate. That isn’t always enough for some people. So,

Here are five benefits of hiring house cleaning services for your Reno home:

1. Professionals will do a better job.

House Cleaning Technicians have perfected the Art of Clean over years of forty-hour work weeks. Most American’s spend 13.3 hours a week cooking and cleaning as of 2010. It’s probably even less than that now. There just isn’t enough time in the day to clean as thoroughly as house cleaning services can. It just makes sense to let someone who does it a little more regularly clean your home.

2. Professionals carry all the tools needed for the job.

There’s a different cleaner for grout, tile, aluminum, linoleum, and hardwood floors. Professionals not only carry each of these cleaners, but they arrive with all the right professional cleaning equipment. Professional house cleaning services use the latest in dirt and grime removal technologies to keep your carpets, floors, and bathrooms clean.

3. Places you didn’t think to clean.

There are an infinite number of surfaces in your home that require cleaning attention. Most people only clean the surfaces they use the most frequently like counter tops and toilets.  Dirt is not bias about what it lands and oils from your skin will stick to anything you touch. Professional house cleaning services will take the time to clean all of these areas and some you didn’t even know about. They wipe down baseboards, door knobs, light switches, garbage cans, and many other places. They also dust extensively across your book shelves, picture frames, collectibles, and hard to reach places like light fixtures.

4. Enjoy your House Party More.

Every good host knows people walk away talking about their food and not their clean floors, or housekeeping. Getting ready for a gathering or party is difficult enough with decorations and food. With house cleaning services you are able to focus on crafting that enjoyable party atmosphere. Parties are amazing, but cleaning up after them can be a nightmare. Garbage needs to be relocated and stains require immediate attention. Whether you need your house cleaned before the party, or after, or both you can enjoy your party more by using professional in-home cleaners.

5. House Cleanings Save Money.

Your Reno home is one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime. Regular cleanings can help keep your home stay in pristine condition and keep unnecessary repairs from happening. If dirt and oils are allowed to build up on the surfaces of your home, you may need to take severe actions, such as sanding and refinishing, to undo the damage. Having a maid service Reno homeowners can also save money in the short term by reducing your grocery bill. Professional residential cleaning services bring their own cleaners. You will no longer have the need to keep costly cleaners in your home.

6. Better things to do with your time.

Let’s face it you could take an entire day to accomplish what professional house cleaning services can do in three to four hours. Your time is more valuable than that. So, take that time and work on your project, exercise, or check your kids’ homework. There’s a list of things you could be doing instead of cleaning house. One of the greatest pleasures in life is coming home to an immaculate house at the end of a very long day cleaned by a residential maid service.

Reno Home Cleaning

House cleaning (Reno)  can be a huge burden for those who already have too much responsibilities in their hands.   If you are someone who is always on the go, you may want to consider companies like ours, Tri Maids Reno, for maid service.  We would be more than happy to take the burden off your hands as you go and do what you do best.  If you are still in doubt, here are four advantages that will surely change your mind.

A Clean Home is a Happy Home

Remove Clutter!

Everything should have it’s place. Keep visible areas of your home clean by having a dedicated space, drawer, or cabinet for clutter.

Top surfaces gather dust like no other part of the home.  Because of this, we recommend that you keep them as bare as possible.  This will allow you to wipe them down frequently and easily.

Wipe your feet or remove your shoes

The is a lot of dust in the desert. The biggest dirt problem we see on our Reno home floors are brought in by footwear.  The Japanese are some of the cleanest people in the world, and they do not allow you to walk inside their home with your shoes on.

Clean-up after cooking

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but if you clean while you cook, it feels like you are cleaning less overall.  Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not.  One thing we do know is that when you get kitchen splatter, from a pain or bowl, the longer the splatter sits, the harder it is to clean.

Even after you clean it, there might still be residue left for Tri Maids Reno to come clean!  So always try to clean as you go, and it makes splatter removal easier.

Be mindful of your furry friends.

Pet fur is the worst!  It gets into everything, and you will even find it in your AC vent.  Do yourself (and your dog) a favor and brush them regularly outside. Make a habit of giving them regular baths and rinse them off when they get extra dirty.

This will prevent most of the fur trapped mess from getting inside the home.
