We’re all familiar with that sinking feeling. You know the one, where all the good vibes from throwing that epic summer party begin to disintegrate into the realization that you’re going to have to start cleaning up.

Been there, right?

That moment is the very definition of “dread,” unless, of course you’re in the minority that absolutely laboratory tests for lamictal https://rainierfruit.com/drink-on-viagra/ arka gdynia flagyl https://projectathena.org/grandmedicine/does-viagra-50-mg-work/11/ follow link https://zacharyelementary.org/presentation/dissertation-philosophique-terminale/30/ thesis proposal apa source site https://plastic-pollution.org/trialrx/prednisolone-sod-compared-to-albuterol/31/ can nexium help people with diabetis https://tffa.org/businessplan/essay-topics-about-higher-education/70/ first generation college student essay https://www.mitforumcambridge.org/multiple/global-warming-essay-free-download/2/ https://carlgans.org/report/love-story-essay-example/7/ follow url follow viagra ad 2015 bystolic selectivity https://elkhartcivictheatre.org/proposal/essays-on-benjamin-franklin/3/ https://www.aestheticscienceinstitute.edu/medical/can-viagra-dissolve-in-water/100/ can cialis cause liver damage resume for mortgage underwriter arranged marriages essay topics https://greenechamber.org/blog/concept-essay/74/ marketing case history cialis scade brevetto https://rainierfruit.com/viagra-generico-en-mexico/ serlift 25 ranbaxy viagra cialis 20 rezeptfrei source url thesis statement examples good and evil thesis statement for adoption research paper loves cleaning.

To the rest who have a distaste for cleaning ranging somewhere on the scale from slight frustration (“I really, really don’t like cleaning up other people’s messes”) to white-hot boiling rage (“I think I may just hurt someone here!”), we understand, and we love each and everyone one of you – and don’t want you to go to jail after throwing that epic summer party.

That would suck.

So, here at The Cleaning Crew, we’ve got your back! Follow these Summer Party Clean Up Tips to take that not so awesome task of party clean up and make it feel just a little more like a party and a lot less like a wake.

Make Your Bathroom a Clutter-Free Zone


Have a really tiny bathroom space? Or, a tiny budget? Our friend Kathryn at Do It On a Dime, has these suggestions:

Expand Storage Capacity of under-sink CabinetsBathroom-Pull-out-Shelves

Take advantage of all the room under your sink (and save yourself some stooping and reaching) with sliding drawers. Check out Living Locurto‘s super-smart ways to organize under the sink.

If your quarters are tight and space is already limited, look up. Take advantage of vertical real estate by hanging a multilevel fruit basket for additional storage. When placed in the shower, the open rungs of the three-tier hanging basket allow loofahs and bath toys to dry over the tub. Or suspend the basket in an unused corner and stock it with lotions, treatments, and scented sachets. An idea that might keep your bathroom better stocked is to make sure you have the best home energy quote to save money. I hear Money Expert provide a fantastic range of quotes that should save you money.

Don’t Hide the T.P.tp

Two conundrums you’ve probably experienced: 1. You’re in your bathroom and you realize you are out of toilet paper. 2. You’re in someone else’s bathroom and you realize they are out of toilet paper. (Do you uncomfortably search your host’s cupboards or sheepishly go ask for help? Skip scenario one at least and always keep ample rolls in a nearby urn, bin, or basket.

There’s no end to Bathroom Organizing Ideas! These are meant to give us a kick start.

* BONUS RECIPE: SUPER DUPER TUB SCRUB *

bath

Along with a little scrubbing power from a sponge, we love this simple and effective Tub Scrub. It leaves tubs and sinks sparkling clean and does a great job removing soap scum.

  1. 1 cup baking soda
  2. 4 tablespoons water
  3. 2 tablespoons liquid castile soap (We like Dr. Bronner’s Fair Trade & Organic Castile Liquid Soap)
  4. Add baking soda to a glass container with a lid.
  5. Add castile soap and water, stirring until it’s toothpaste consistency.
  6. Using a wet sponge, work this cleanser into tubs surfaces, letting it sit for a few minutes
  7. Rinse with hot water.

If you don’t use all the cleaner in one use, you can save it in a covered container. If it dries out, just add water until it forms a paste again. You might even free up enough space to add some extra furniture to your bathroom. I hear that a friend decided to Buy Oak Bathroom Furniture Here and was not disappointed.

My Moms The Bomb! Motherly Tips and Tricks


Technology has definitely made life – and cleaning – easier! No complaints here!

But even robotic vacuums and fancy dishwashers can’t replace the timeless housekeeping tips, tricks and memories of our mothers and grandmothers.

We have asked our clients and cleaners to share their generational cleaning tips, tricks and memories so that we can share their nostalgia and brilliance with you!

Treat your laundry with care!

“My mom always insisted we rush to the dryer as soon as it chimed to pull the sheets out. We’d then pull in opposite directions to remove wrinkles. Sometimes it would turn into a little tug of war with more than a few giggles. But heck, it sure beat ironing them!” ~ Joan

Hot wax spilled all over…..the carpet?

Candle wax often finds its way onto our carpets, area rugs, or upholstery. If things get too out of hand looking into this Rug Cleaning Malvern or other services and locations might be a wise idea to avoid further damage. If it’s not much wax, with this quick tip you can easily get the candle wax out and make your carpet as good as new. With a damp rag and a steaming iron removing spilled wax is easy. After preheating your iron place a wet but not dripping rag flat over the waxy spill. Place the hot iron on top of the rag and check every 15 sec. till the wax transfers onto the cloth. You may have to re-adjust the rag a few times to remove all spilled wax. This may not work on every wax though so you might need to give your carpet a steam cleaning to get all the wax off.

“I tried to tell my grandma it was the cat that spilled the hot candle wax on the carpet, but I think she knew better! (I don’t think cats like fire as much as curious 9 year olds.) I thought I was doomed, but she didn’t freak out. She calmly went to the utility room and returned with her iron and a damp rag. She got the iron hot, placed the damp rag over the spill, and started ironing away. It took several passes, but eventually all the wax got absorbed into the damp cloth. The carpet was good as new! I told my grandma I’d keep a closer eye on the cat. Grandma? She gave me a knowing wink and waltzed back to her utility room. Lesson learned!” ~Adrian

“If candle wax drips on your tablecloth, rub it with an ice cube until they get hard, and use a butter knife to pop them off.” – Lauren

Housekeeping Secrets Every Mom Should Teach Her Kids

“My mom was ahead of her time. Maybe it was her years living in a commune in the 70’s, but she was always suspicious of harsh chemical cleaners. She insisted on using natural products to clean the house – and taught us kids to do the same. Her go-to? Vinegar. Mold, mildew, and just plain old grime didn’t stand a chance. I still use it to this day!” ~Bev

What’s your secret use for vinegar? Here at the Cleaning Crew we use vinegar a ton with lots of variations. Here’s a great one we found from @ModernDayMom. Give it a try & let us know what you think!

Orange Vinegar – A Greener Cleaner!

Let orange peels soak in vinegar for 2 weeks in a cool dark place, then remove the orange peels and dilute with water by 50% in your regular spray bottle to add extra cleaning power to your natural cleaner. Check out these other effective and zesty recipes on Pinterest!

Busy Mom Secrets For a Cleaner Home

Clean your microwave in 30 seconds! Place a couple slices of lemon or 2 tablespoons of lemon juice into a bowl with 1/2 cup of water. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute and wipe away stuck on food in a snap without scrubbing!

“There’s nothing more refreshing than the sparkling fresh scent of lemons in the air. My mother’s home always had a hint of citrus. She knew that squeezing lemon juice into salt and wiping down the counter top would remove stains and disinfect just like a magic eraser. She would also remove stains from our lunchbox Tupperware by squeezing lemon juice into the stained dish and then adding baking soda. She would then use a small brush to work in the lemon and baking soda into the stains and allow it to sit. If the stain was bad, she would let it sit overnight before rinsing with warm water. There’s nothing like the fresh smell of home”

~ Sue

“At the end of the day, pick up miscellaneous items throughout the house, and put them into a pick-up basket. When you have more time, you can put everything in its proper place.” – Maria

Baking Soda Magic

“Sprinkle baking soda on carpet and let sit for several minutes before vacuuming. Keeps things fresh!”

~ Carrie Ann

“Pour some baking soda in the washing machine to remove the musty smell from towels.” ~ Nancy

We hope you’re able to take advantage of some of these old-school, time-honored organic cleaning methods in your own home. Your Mother & Grandmother would be proud.
