Natural and Fresh Cleaning

Are you looking for an all natural, heavy duty cleaner for your home that will not fill the air with mystery chemicals?  Look no further…. are you ready for this?  It is Vinegar
Here at Maids and Moore, we have found vinegar to be the safest, natural cleaner for most surfaces.  It works great on glass, mirrors, toilets, tubs, and many more non-porous surfaces.
To make this even better we dare you to take it one step further… I know most of us typically do not like the smell of the vinegar so there is a way to kill that smell and make the vinegar even better for cleaning your home.  Simply infuse it with other natural elements that God blessed this earth with.
That’s right, today we are doing to tell you how to infuse and stay green while cleaning.
You mean cleaning machine you!
IMG_3977
First thing is first lets get our supplies together.  You will need the following:
*Large glass jars (mason jars, pickle jars, etc.) we like to use quart canning jars but any jar will work
*White Vinegar
*herbs, citrus peels (sage, basil, orange, mint, lemon, etc.)
IMG_3972
Wash your jars and fill them with your herbs and citrus.  Experiment here mix and mingle what you think would work best.   Now combine about 2 cups of heated (nearly boiling) vinegar to your jar.  Let sit for about 24 hours and it should be ready to use.  If you want the good new scent to be stronger let it sit longer before use.   When ready to use, strain the peels and herbs out of the mixture and discard, only leaving the new scented vinegar.  To keep it from going bad store it in a cool dark place.
You can use this infused vinegar to clean in several ways such as cleaning the window, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, garbage disposal or even as a pet odor remover, fabric softner, pest control and much much more.  A few of our favorites are below.  Enjoy!

How to use your infused Vinegar for cleaning your home
*Toilet Cleaner
~  Spray the toilet inside and out and let sit for 30 minutes allowing the vinegar to do its magic.  Then simply wipe off the vinegar and tada clean, fresh, and deodorized.
*Shower and Tubs
~Spray the shower/tub with the infused vinegar and allow it to sit for 30 minutes or longer.  Come back with a cup of water and sponge and all of the soap scum and sludge will wipe right off.
*Garbage Disposal
~Freeze your infused vinegar in an ice tray and drop a few of these in the garbage disposal and grind them up it will remove all of the yuck off the walls and blades of your dishwasher removing unwanted smells and yuck.  Repeat weekly for best results.
*Floors ( DO NOT use on porous floors such as wood, stone, marble, and granite surfaces. Vinegar will dry out and damage these floor types and surfaces)
~This infused vinegar is best used on non-porous floors such as tile.  It just does wonders.  Mix 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water to a spray bottle.  Using a dry micro mop lightly spray a 4-foot space with your infused vinegar and mop moving thru the floor surface cleaning away and deodorizing those floors with the amazing aroma the new infused vinegar is putting off.
DISCLOSURE       DO NOT use vinegar on any porous floors or surfaces such as wood, stone, marble, and granite surfaces. Vinegar will dry out and damage these floor types and surface

Neglect because we forget..!

Most of us are as busy as all get out, running from one event to the next. Trying to care for every part of our home can be a task. I mean if the trash needs to go out we take it out. Dishes stacking up we wash them. Scrub the toilet and pick up dirty clothes and wash them. Have you thought though about the trash can your trash goes in? The dishwasher storing your clean dishes? Just imagine how easily these things get neglected. So to help we have included a few tips as to why you should clean these and when.

IMG_2579 (1)

Dishwasher:
Should be cleaned quarterly if not monthly. By doing so you lessen your chances of food poisoning and build up of germs and bacteria. Dirt, food, and grease all build up in dishwasher over time and if water that drips does not drain it sours and spoils your clean dishes and your stomach.

How: Weekly remove the filter, soak, and clean it.  Run a heavy cycle with vinegar in the soap dispenser and baking soda sprinkled inside of the machine. Good as new!

Indoor Trash Can:
Clean every 2 months if not monthly. Trash tends to spill over and leak out causing your trash can to get sticky, smelly, and grow bacteria.

How: Take your trash can to the bath/shower and rinse it with warm soapy water. You can also spray it down well with a good antibacterial cleaner and be sure to wipe the inside, outside, and bottom.

Washing Machine:
This guy does so much for your household so monthly we clean it. Just like parents if we don’t reboot and charge we will burn out so do a courtesy to your faithful friend the washing machine. This inside of the washing machine will start to develop buildup which keeps the water from filtering and draining properly.

How: With the machine running hot water add a quart of bleach to the detergent dispenser. Let this run full cycle. Be sure to clean all compartments seals and hinges by hand these areas must be clean to prevent mold and bacteria growth from the moisture. Doing this monthly will keep you from the laundry mat.

Refrigerator:
Should be cleaned quarterly if not monthly. By doing so you lessen your chances of food poisoning and build up of germs and bacteria. Not to mention from keep dust from building up on the coils and under the fridge causing moisture to damage the floors and the machine.

How: Pull out all drawers and soak them in warm soapy water. Clean the inside of the fridge with a rag or sponge using baking soda and vinegar on hard stains and yucky dried on food. Now, pull out the fridge vacuum and wipe down the wall behind the fridge, the back and side of the fridge, and the floor where it sits. Tada! Fresh and Clean and damage free.

Garbage Disposal:

Pew!! What is that smell..? It is your garbage disposal. The plastic rings and the disposal itself collect old food and bacteria. Using ice knocks off the buildup off the walls and blades of the disposal.

How: Freeze lemon juice and drop a few cubes down the drain weekly and turn her on. You may also like to use frozen vinegar either or.

We hope a few of these tips will help

Need a Quick Clean… We have you Covered!

banner

With the holidays upon us and guests coming and going, it does not save us much time to get our homes in order from Thanksgiving to Christmas, then Christmas to the New Year’s festivities.  So Maids and Moore had you in mind.  We offer one time cleanings that we ensure will suite your needs.

Our most popular and in demand cleaning is our Deep Clean. This type of cleaning is used when a home is occupied. It’s what we call the floor to ceiling cleaning, also know as a “spring clean”. This clean is used by customers that want that once or twice a year cleaning, to clean up before or after events or parties, and before and after company is coming to visit. This type of cleaning is required when you sign up for weekly, bi-weekly and monthly services. It is what we call the First Initial Cleaning. Who knows, maybe after the first of the year we can become a part of your New Years resolution! For more details or a quote, click here.

Next, there is our list clean which is a type of cleaning in which you determine your budget. In this case, customers know exactly what they want done. Instead of cleaning the entire home,  Maids and Moore cleaners work in order of a prioritized list given to us by the customer. We always encourage customers to allot a reasonable amount of time for the cleaning tasks which they need completed. For more details or a quote, click here.

We hope that this makes your festive season easier and creates time for you and yours.  We have live representatives ready to speak to you Monday through Friday during normal business hours at 1-844-GOT-DUST. Call Now! Get your one time cleaning spot reserved today.
