Spring Cleaning Hacks

woman washing dishesIt’s time for spring cleaning! This is the time that a lot of people dread because cleaning a home can be a time-consuming chore that nobody wants to do. It’s when we usually get on our hands and knees, use some elbow grease, and clean every inch of our homes. We know that you work hard to make sure everything is as clean as possible. Sometimes, though, stubborn stains or dust can make this difficult. How can you get your home really clean? Our Dallas maids at The Maids Dallas provide some hacks that you can utilize during spring cleaning to make things a little easier on you.

Have Pets? Use Rubber Gloves!

If you notice that your furniture has pet hair covering it, use rubber gloves to rub them down. Why? The hair will stick to the rubber gloves so you can easily clean up all the fur with just your hands. Once you’ve collected the pet hair, wash the gloves in water and you should be good to go!

Use Your Microwave to Clean Your Sponges

If you are spring cleaning, you’re going to use your sponges — a lot. This means they will probably be covered with dirt, dust, and bacteria. To make sure you’re not just spreading the bacteria around your home, simply place the sponges in water briefly and then microwave them for at least a minute. This can help kill the bacteria.

Use a Lint Roller On Your Lampshade

Lampshades can be made of delicate material and applying too much pressure to clean them can ruin their form or even break them. If you have a lint roller you normally use on your clothes, simply use that for the lampshade. It’s soft enough to cause no harm and still catches the dust that often piles on the lampshades.

Vinegar Cleans Dirty Shower Heads and Faucets

Have you noticed some lime scale or stains on your faucets or shower head? Vinegar is helpful in removing those stubborn stains because it is an acid. Simply fill a baggy with vinegar, wrap it around the shower head or faucet, let it soak for a while, and then wipe it down. You’ll see that shine you were always hoping for without having to scrub and scrub.

At The Maids Dallas, we offer a 22-step cleaning system designed to make sure you have the clean you deserve. We can do the spring cleaning for you so you can focus on the other things you care about. Call us today to schedule a service and you’ll be happy that you made the decision to hire our Dallas maids to take care of all your home cleaning needs.
