Why would we give out our little known secrets? Well the truth is simply this. Some people just want to clean their own homes, PERIOD! If you want a company to clean your home, then you would simply just call someone, right?
Reasons people hire cleaning companies:
Below you will find answers to questions that we've been asked from our clients and friends. How to's and easy ways to clean. We have specific products that we like to use but everyone has their favorites so if it works for you then continue to use it.
Since we started this company our idea was geared toward making it a complete eco friendly company. We like using products that are safe for our clients, pets, children, the environment and us. There are some who will argue against these products not doing as good a job as the common bleaches and powders that we have been using for many years. I was guilty of that myself! I called myself the "bleach queen" at one point in my life. My breaking point was one day while bleaching my bathroom I almost suffocated. Yes! True story!
So my answer to those who think that eco friendly products don't work as well is, "if you are using the products with harsh chemical because you feel that they work for you then continue to use them". I will, however, add that eco friendly products work just as well.
I also hear, "this product or that product does not work", and then I have two questions:
Question #1- "Did you read the instruction"? Some people read the instructions to a bar of soap while others never read directions or instructions. I have to admit I am one of the ones who doesn't read anything! Who has time? Well maybe now we know why it doesn't work.
Question #2- "Did you allow the product to work for you"? This one is very important! The reason is that we are all guilty of spraying a product on and within seconds wiping it right off. We are in such a hurry to get it done that we don't allow the product to do what it's suppose to do. What we typically recommend is spraying the product and spreading it generously on the surface, let it sit for the recommended amount of time or longer (depending on the surface and need) then scrub (if necessary) then rinse.
THAT WAS A NITZA TIP ALL IN ITSELF! LOL ;-)
With all that being said, below you will find Questions and answers to common cleaning problems. Please feel free to send me your questions and I will illustrate them here on this page so that we can share them.
Cleaning Questions answered here!
Vinegar vs Toxic Sprays
Many clients have asked me why I use my cleaning vinegar cleanser instead of chemical sprays when it comes to cleaning kitchen stoves, ovens and counter surfaces. The truth is I can use my vinegar spray on almost all surfaces without having to carry 3 different products for just the kitchen. Even if the scent is a bit strong it will dissipate within a few minutes of cleaning. It will even help neutralize other smells that may linger in the kitchen from food and garbage. Those lingering odors that we dislike so much.
Peroxide vs. Bleach
Cleaning a bathroom with peroxide instead of bleach is a safe non-toxic way to sterilize, disinfect and whiten bathrooms. I like to use equal parts of peroxide, water and an all purpose cleaner.
TIP: For most clogged drains pour 1/2 cup baking soda into drain and 1 cup of cleaning vinegar. Let sit for about 1 hour. Boil water in a medium pot and pour into drain. BETTER THAN USING HARSH CHEMICALS AND MUCH SAFER!
Windows & Glass
Vinegar vs Windex
Make windows shine with a mixture of Cleaning vinegar and rubbing alcohol! Yes, the scent is a bit strong so it can be diluted with water or I like to add glass cleaner to give it a better scent and then I simple wipe with a microfiber cloths or Paper Towels. Leaves windows shiny and no streaks.
TIP: For very dirty windows or glass use the vinegar & dish washing liquid mix first to get the heavy dirt off and then spray lightly with the vinegar and alcohol mix .
