Thanksgiving Prep!

The Holiday Season is on it's way with Thanksgiving right around the corner! Make sure you're ready  to entertain your friends and family with a clean house.

The kitchen can become a family gathering area when preparing the Thanksgiving feast. Be sure to start the long day in the kitchen off clean. Food prep areas should be de-cluttered and disinfected before any sort of kitchen prep begins. When there's going to be multiple cooks in the kitchen, clean and tidy surfaces, tools, utensils and dishes makes everything that much simpler.

For those who choose to spend the day watching football the living room becomes the primary environment for the day. Be sure to tidy the area and de-clutter coffee table space for game snacks and beverages. Create a welcoming and clean living room for your guests to enjoy the game no matter the outcome.

Thanksgiving always ends in a feast of epic portions. If unused, the dining room often becomes cluttered making for stressful and cramped meals. Everyone looks forward to a clean dining table complete with sparkling plates, glasses, and dinnerware.

Bathroom Cleaning Day

Even the most renovated bathroom can send your house guests home with an icky feeling if not kept looking clean and germ free.
Here are a few problem areas for  bathroom cleanliness that should be taken care of regularly.

Toilet
The toilet is always the first fixture in the bathroom to get grimy. It's easy to procrastinate cleaning the toilet, but it just gets harder and harder to clean. The best practice for cleaning the toilet is to do so regularly as to not let germs and grime build up. Be sure to use gloves and to clean toilet brushes after every use. Following these rules will keep you safe and your toilet sparkling. 

Tiles and Grout

Brown or dingy bathroom tiles and grout can automatically make your bathroom appear nasty. Grout is hard to clean once dirty, and breeds bacteria due to its porous nature. 

Towels
Wash and change hand towels regularly to prevent bacteria growth. Moist hand towels can spread bacteria to everyone who touches them.

Sinks
Sink build up and soap scum is definitely gross. Not cleaning sinks can cause moisture build up and rust damage to expensive bathroom sinks and counter tops.

Tips for Keeping Your Condo Clean

Keeping your condo or apartment clean is a tricky and time-consuming job, especially with the limited living and storage space that they offer. It is sometimes difficult keeping clutter under control.


Here are a few tips on keeping small homes clean.

Clean at least once a day. 
A small amount of idle time spent cleaning, dusting or de-cluttering can really help with the overall cleanliness of your home. With small homes it is important to keep on top of extra things not put into the correct place. Everyday items can pile up leaving your living space chaotic and unorganized.

Take the Trash out!
Everyone's least favorite chore is essential when living in a small area. It's recommended to empty garbage bins and remove them from your condo at least once a day to prevent odors, or worse, insect infestation. Smell travels fast in a small area, so it's best to avoid them before they start to linger. It is also important to keep on top of cleaning kitty litter and other pet cages regularly to prevent odors.

Keep Laundry Organized
Making sure your dirty laundry is organized and sorted is a great first step to making the task take less time. Also having scheduled laundry days can make sure that the mountain of dirty clothing and long laundry sessions never happens again.

Organize Storage areas
Condos are notorious for having few and small storage areas. Organizing your storage areas can make things a lot easier. If you're not ducking for cover every time you open your closet, it will be more useful and maybe you'll actually find that one blouse you were looking for. Under the sink organization means finding things faster and getting on with your day.

Clean your house to avoid catching colds

Catching a cold is never fun. The sneezing, the grogginess, the discomfort. Who's got time for that? WebMD reveals that the common cold is quite strong and can survive quite a while on a variety of surfaces.



From WebMD:
“Rhinoviruses can survive on doorknobs, table tops, shopping cart handles, and other surfaces for 24 hours or more,” Hendley says.
In one ingenious experiment, Hendley and his colleagues had cold sufferers spend the night in a local hotel room and then asked them to identify what they’d touched during their stay; 35% of everything they touched -- including door handles, pens, light switches, TV remote controls, faucets, and telephones -- turned out to be contaminated with a cold virus.

What this means is that you should regularly clean and disinfect your house and office. If you can't afford to take time off of work, or simply don't want to be sick, be sure to sanitize surfaces you touch and consider using hand sanitizer whenever you touch objects from the outside. Avoid touching your face and wash your hands frequently.

House Cleaning with a Newborn Baby

Thinking about your baby in a dirty nursery is enough to give any parent germ-induced nightmares. Babies contribute to all kinds of messes, filling many nurseries with bacteria and ultimately making an unsafe environment for them to live in.


Before you start, make sure all cleaners being used are safe for your baby. Be sure to read the directions and health/safety messages carefully.

Disinfection Area
Every nursery should have a designated area for disinfection supplies, preferably close to the changing table. Sanitizing your hands after every diaper change can stop the spread of germs and contamination of things your baby can come in contact with. Disinfecting diaper boxes, wipe boxes, and furniture in the changing area regularly can help stop the spread of germs.

Disposal Strategy
Babies are always surprising parents with large messes. It's best to plan ahead and have disposal and soiled laundry areas already in place. Keeping these areas clean and emptying them on a regular basis can prevent contamination to the rest of the room. Dirty clothing, sheets, and wash cloths should be sealed separately and washed as soon as possible.

Determine and Keep on top of Germ heavy areas
Germ-heavy areas in your nursery should be identified and taken care of everyday. Wiping down and removing grime from areas like the crib, door knobs, laundry baskets and playpens with sanitizer will keep the germs at bay.

Swap out cradle linens frequently
Your baby spends a lot of their time dozing in bed, with that said, old bed sheets should be swapped out and washed at least once a week to stop the spread of bacteria. Germs, dirt, allergens and dust in linens can irritate your baby's skin and cause rashes.

Frequently Disinfect your baby's toys
Curious babies put everything into their mouths. Toys should be disinfected and rinsed frequently to make sure your baby is not ingesting harmful germs that could make them sick.

Hygienic Floors
Babies love spending time on the floor. Make sure your floors are hygienic to keep your baby safe. Carpets should be vacuumed regularly to get rid of mold, dust, pet dander, and debris that can get caught in it.

Keep Organized
Organizing your nursery keeps your baby both safe from harm and germs. Scattered toys and clothing can become tripping hazards that could potentially bring harm. Cross contamination can also spread germs when clean and dirty things co-mingle. It's best practice to keep an organized nursery free of clutter.

Cleaning Tips: How to Clean Your Electronics



Part of keeping your home and office clean includes cleaning your electronics. Now a days, people rely on electronics such as laptops, USB accessories, phones and more as part of their daily routines. Ultimately, keeping you electronics clean not only makes them work better, is more hygienic, and will look better to your guests. Below are some useful tips for keeping your electronic devices clean.

Before you proceed, you should check your device owners manuals for any special warnings and/or cleaning instructions.

Screens and Lenses: Most screens can be cleaned by dampening a lint free cloth with some distilled water. Rub the damp cloth over the screen from side to side. Be sure not to put a lot of moisture on the edges of the screen. Use a dry cloth to gently wipe those areas. You can also a 50/50 mixture of alcohol and water to clean and disinfect your device, but be aware that some phones such as iPhone have a special self cleaning coating that will get damaged. Camera lenses may also become damaged by alcohol. Be sure to check your owners manual/documentation.

Keyboards, Mice, controllers, etc: Wipe your accessories down with a clean lint free cloth, dampened with a 50/50 mix of alcohol and water. If you notice debris in the crevices of your devices, such as under the keys of your keyboard, a can of compressed air can be helpful to blow out the particles. Read the compressed air instructions before use.

Vents: Many devices, such as game consoles, computers, and even power transformers have vents for heat. When those vents become clogged by dust, they can cause the device to work less efficiently. Compressed air can be useful for clearing the vents of your devices. You can also use computer or camera duster pens which have anti-static bristles design to loosen up dust in tight areas.
