Knowing your house is clean from top to bottom will keep your mind at ease. Here are some tips and tricks we’ve learned along the way.
Mold in showers – Without using harsh chemicals, kill the mold and mildew in your shower/bathtub with one ingredient, vinegar. Undiluted white vinegar is only about 20% acetic so adding water will make it less effective. Use a spray bottle to spray the effected areas, let sit for an hour then come back and wipe down with clean warm water and let dry.
Appliances – Deep clean your stove/oven at least once a month. First remove all knobs and place in warm soapy water. If toy have a self-cleaning oven, use it, it’s your best friend. If not time to break out the baking soda. Clean away any loose food and crumbs then using a mixture of baking soda and water coat the paste all over inside of oven and leave it overnight. Wipe away the next morning with a clean rag and warm water.
Bedrooms – Start with a basic tidying up, pick up dirty clothes, clean off nightstands. Gather what does not belong in your bedroom. Then start dusting. Start from the top and work your way down. If your mattress is dirty start with a good vacuuming then clean with either an upholstery cleaner or spot clean, flip mattress and repeat. Open the windows and let the fresh air in!
