The Sun is Shining: 5 Hacks to Keep Your House Shining Too

The Sun is Shining: 5 Hacks to Keep Your House Shining Too

The summer is here, and chances are, everyone in your household—even the dog—is gunning to get outside as much as possible before the weather cools down again.  With all the coming and going this time of year, your floors can face a lot of damage and stains from mud, bugs, and grass being tracked into the house.

For busy bees in Springfield, Virginia, calling a maid service is your best bet for keeping your home sparkling clean.  At Smart Choice Cleaning, our experienced team of cleaners knows all the best tips and tricks on how to make your home clean enough to impress all who walk in.

Read below for 4 easy hacks to make your floors look fresh and polished:

  1. Use a Pool Noodle to Fill Your Mop Bucket

Shower taken? If your mop bucket can’t fit in the sink, try this simple trick you’ll wish you thought of earlier. If you have pool noodles around for some fun in the pool, you can bring it in for some help cleaning, too. Just put one end of the noodle on the faucet, another in your bucket, turn on the water and you’re good to go.

  1. Mop Socks

Let your kids join in on the fun!  By using fuzzy socks, or even ordering specialty-made mop socks online, you can all find the joy in cleaning together. After spraying cleaner on the floor, have everyone slip on their socks and get sliding.

  1. Shine Floors with Hot Tea

Wood floors lost their luster? Mop with black tea to give them an impressive shine. When using this hack, be careful not to use too much or make it too hot.  Hardwood can get damaged from too much heat or moisture.

  1. Shaving Cream + Lemon Juice

The grout between the tiles on the floor often gets ignored.  A Swiffer can swish right over top of the grout and miss all the dirt underneath.  To get to this part of the floor, you have to go beyond a plain old mop or Swiffer.  A mixture of shaving cream and lemon juice, sprayed on the grout and left for a few minutes, is exactly what you need. Once the solution has worked its magic, scrub the area with a toothbrush to rub away the dirt it brought to the surface.
