I use a great eco-friendly cleaning service to clean my house. With our busy jobs, life, etc., it’s really nice not to worry about having the house clean when we walk in the door at the end of our day. It’s not expensive and they do a top notch job.
I started thinking when I was washing my car a couple weeks ago. I get my car professionally detailed nicely throughout the year. I also bring it to my local car wash and do it myself to maintain the cleanliness. I cleaned it on a Friday knowing on Monday I was getting it detailed. It seemed like why am I doing this? In three days someone else does it for me.
But, on that Monday, after my car was detailed I realized something. My car wasn’t just clean now; it was SUPER CLEAN!
By me cleaning my car on Friday, on Monday it was like having a new car. It’s like starting a puzzle and someone fills in a few pieces you didn’t see. It’s great! So, if I am willing to do this for my car… WHY NOT DO THIS FOR MY HOUSE?!
We live here. Imagine if your house was so clean it would make people jealous when they visit. It can be done. And it’s so easy. Cleaning eco-friendly in what time you have will do wonders when the cleaning service arrives to spruce it up even more. Now, I didn’t go ceiling to floor with this, but I have some pointers that come in handy.
#1 BAKING SODA. Seriously, just that average box you have in your fridge or just pick up in the grocery aisle at Walmart. This stuff works wonders. I spread it over my carpet and let it sit just a few minutes and vacuum. It’s fresh, easy, and non-toxic. Takes really no time at all.
#2 DISTILLED WHITE VINEGAR. Once again a very inexpensive product you can get on the same aisle as baking soda. Take this and put ½ a cup into a bowl, add ½ a cup of water and just a spoonful of dish soap. Mix it together and your kitchen counters will sparkle. Also works great on bathtubs and sinks if you have the time.
#3 LEMON JUICE. Now you can buy the actual lemon juice, or make it yourself. It a little less expensive to make it yourself, but once again I understand the time thing, so either or will work. You can use lemon juice to clean your bathroom just by itself, but fun fact if you mix just a tiny bit of baking soda, distilled white vinegar, and lemon juice in a bowl it makes a great glass cleaner and can take stains out of your carpet.
And it’s just that easy. It’s troubleshooting something that wasn’t in trouble, but my theory worked. The service came in and cleaned our home, and in the end I’m not a person to usually use this word, but the word is IMMACULATE.
Have a great day!
