How to Kid proof for summer break

FullSizeR

 

With the final school bell rung, end of year class parties over, and summer arrangements final that is right School is Out for Summer.  If you are like us the dread and overwhelming anticipation has set in.  No worries here are a few tips to kid proof for the summer.

Step ONE

Plan all meals.  Create a drawer or shelf in your pantry for snacks only.  If children are old enough to make their own meals, brainstorm with them a few meals they can prepare for themselves during the week without burning the house down.

Step TWO

To avoid the dreaded sentence, “I am bored…”  sit down with your kids and ask them some things they would like to do this summer.  Without dismissing any of their ideas, write them down then brainstorm and sort our your list with your significant other what things you can do for the summer.  Another avenue would be to implement activities they can do on their own each day. Our personal favorite would be The Bored Jar. Write down the activities mentioned above that they like to do or would like to do and add a few.  Anytime the kids are bored send them to The Bored Jar.  The internet offers many options or you can always follow us on Pinterest to see some of our favorites: https://www.pinterest.com/maidsandmoore/maids-and-moore/

Step THREE

Chores.  Yes, while controversial with some, chores are a wonderful part of a routine. Like going to school, it keeps the children accountable and on schedule.  Chores build character, teaching them to be responsible and certainly rule out boredom. Not to mention it take some of the mommy do list items away.  Make a list of chores to do for each child and as incentive offer allowances or getting to do their choice of something fun.  If you have multiple children accomplishing chores each week find an activity that will make all of them happy.

Step FOUR

Overwhelmed still….? Consider hiring professional services to help you with things such as babysitting, lawn care, and house cleaning.  Maids and Moore will be happy to help you take a load off with all of your house, carpet, and window cleaning needs.  The benefit of hiring a professional to do what ‘you do not have the time to do’ is the guarantee.  With so much up in the air during summer break, it is nice to have quality service to help you “create time” for the things that matter most to you.

Call us today for your house cleaning needs at 1-844 GOT DUST we would love to help you.

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

Cleaning Supplies Too Dirty to be Clean?!

Cleaning-Service-Austin-TX

Nobody likes the smell of a sour sponge.  How about that mop that looks like a dirty Komondor dog. Yikes! Well if you enjoy your pristine home and take pride in your outstanding housekeeping skills, you probably know that the trick is to have clean cleaning supplies.  You do not want to clean your home with something dirty.  The best slate is a clean slate.  Now, if this is something you have never thought about, let’s think about it: As
we clean our counters with that infamous sponge. The same sponge we use to clean the dishes, the cutting board full of chicken juice (yuck), and the spilt chocolate milk that the dog had started to lick off the floor. To then clean the kitchen table with right after dinner.  Yummy! Right?  Makes sense that we’d be spreading germs and dirt.

Okay don’t freak out let’s just apply some basic cleaning habits to stop anymore germ spread and dirt smears.

img_1252Let’s start with our mop.  Mops can be one of the nastiest things in your home, besides your sponge.  If you are using the old bucket to mop system, just like the sponge, this is a place that is damp that bacteria loves to grow on.  By simply soaking your mop in a tub of bleach and water after each use, ring it out till dry and make sure to hang it up in a cool dry place, to completely dry before the next use. Here at Maids and Moore we use the dry mop method.  By using a microfiber mop with washable mop heads we avoid the risk of germ spread and bacteria growth allowing us to change heads from house to house. We also use washable terry clothes to place under the microfiber mop head, to clean four foot sections at a time, with a light mist of all purpose cleaner. This ensures that we are not just smearing dirty mop water and germs from one part of the house to the next.

Back to that kitchen sponge, as we already determined earlier our kitchen sponge gets used more than anything in our cleaning supplies for more than one thing.  It has been proven that a majority of sponges test positive for numerous forms of bacteria that can make us sick as well as be deadly to us.  To get rid of anything that might be lingering on it simply place your sponge in the microwave for 1 minute after using each day.  You can also run it thru the dishwasher by placing it on the top rack just be sure to ring it out immediately after the cycle is finished.  Your sponge should be evicted after 2 weeks in your home.  While this may seem wasteful, it’s better safe than sorry.  Also, be sure to never let you sponge sit in a pool of water. Make sure it is sitting out to completely dry, the sponge should never stay wet.

I know what some of you are thinking.  Forget the sponge I use dish rags.  While this is also a great alternative these too can hold many germs as well. Your dish rag should not sit out after two days for the same reasons, not to mention the smell they get after some time.  If you are washing your dish rags and towels and they smell sour simply wash them with half a cup of baking soda and nothing else and run it through the cycle. Tada! The stink is gone!!

IMG_0900Last but not least, our vacuum.  It gets around from pet hair clean up on the baseboards and couches, dust bunnies all thru the house, dust mites from under the bed, to vacuuming our headrest on our recliners. If you are using a vacuum with bags, be sure to replace them before it gets full.  If the bag is full it loses its power to suction and just pushes the dirt out that won’t fit in the bag throughout different places in your home.  For bag less vacuums, be sure to empty the canister after each use. There is always a chance it could leak and if you have sucked up any live bugs and their families you will just be moving them to a new location in your home you would probably rather them not be. Don’t forget your attachments and rollers these too could use a good whipping down regularly.
