Smart Choice Cleaning has positioned itself as a leader and expert in home cleaning and maid services. If cleaning your home is too daunting of a task, consider the following house cleaning tips as your ticket to a cleaner, healthier home and learn how to clean your home more efficiently from those in the know.

Are home cleaning products too costly? Consider these healthy, green alternatives for both your home and the environment and learn how to clean your home the eco-friendly way.

  • Polish wood with three parts olive oil and one part white vinegar.
  • Mix a paste of baking soda and vinegar to remove stubborn toilet bowl rings.
  • Rub windows down with a cotton-swab of rubbing alcohol to remove old cleaning product residue and wash with a mixture of two tablespoons vinegar and one-quart water.
  • Use multi-purpose baking soda for scouring or to remove scuff-marks from vinyl floors. Add a small square of aluminum foil, boiling water, and it makes a great silver bath!

Be prepared for unexpected guests! Keep this checklist handy for hosting to eliminate messes and clutter quickly when time is of the essence.

  • Make room in the coat closet for guest’s coats.
  • Place extra rolls of toilet paper in a decorative basket in the bathroom.
  • Use a laundry basket to pick up miscellaneous items and store in a bedroom closet.
  • Close all doors to bedrooms and other rooms not intended for guests.
  • Wipe off fingerprints on appliances.
  • Remove any dishes from the sink or countertops.
  • Light dust the coffee table and other spots where guests will congregate.
  • Vacuum high traffic areas.
  • Burn scented candles in the bathroom and kitchen or set out potpourri.
  • Take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy your company.

Does your home make you sniffle? Use these home cleaning tips to cope with allergies and prevent sneezing and discomfort.

  • Clean and service air conditioning units to remove pollen and other allergens trapped during prior use.
  • Thoroughly clean places where molds flourish, like drain pans under your refrigerator, old flowerpots and shower curtains.
  • Encase box springs, mattresses and pillows in allergy-proof covers to keep dust and dust mites away.
  • Always wash bedding in hot water to kill dust mites and launder every one to two weeks.
  • Dust regularly. Wear a mask if you are allergic to dust and replace dusting cloths often to prevent dust transfer from one piece of furniture to the next.
  • Restrict your pets’ movement to as few rooms as possible, especially in the  bedrooms.

Keep your kids clean throughout their messy summer fun! Try these kid-friendly cleaning advice to clean up messes such as bubble gum, crayon marks, dirt and grime, and lipstick stains.

  • Chewing gum – Whether it’s stuck on the bottom of your shoe or in a pocket, leave item in the freezer overnight and gently chip away. For stubborn gum, use a small amount of paint thinner.
  • Crayon on the walls – As ingenious as your child’s art may be, the best way to remove it from walls is to rub the stain with a small amount of paint thinner and wipe with a clean, dry cloth.
  • Playdough in the carpet – Place a large amount of dry-cleaning solvent on a clean white towel. Leave the towel on the affected area for one minute, lift and gently rub the playdough away, moving towel in one direction.
  • Dirt and Dust – It’s everywhere! Ask children to remove shoes before coming into the house to keep as many allergens outside as possible. Vacuum entryways often to remove allergy and asthma contaminants.
  • Fingerprints – Buff surfaces with a clean cloth dampened with a neutral disinfectant. This will not only remove fingerprints, but childhood germs as well.
  • Lipstick on your collar or wall – Little girls love to play with make-up. Scrape excess wax away with a soft spatula. Pretreat clothing with a small amount of dishwashing liquid and rinse. Mix 1/3 part white vinegar to 2/3 part water to gently blot stain away or wipe surfaces clean.
