Lets face it, if “House Cleaning Napa” was one of the Valley’s attractions we wouldn’t have any visitors! So, if you’ve made a resolution to spend less time House Cleaning Napa and more time Doing Napa, Simply the Best Cleaning is here for you! As part of my house cleaning services, I provide my clients regular and deep house cleaning, helping them maintain a clean home.
Imagine getting a top to bottom house cleaning and then having your home maintained on a regular schedule. Think of all the time you would have to enjoy the beautiful Napa Valley and its quaint little towns like Saint Helena and Yountville. When is the last time your refrigerator was cleaned out, how about your stove and what about cleaning under the sofa? More than likely, those and other house cleaning chores hang like a dark cloud over any upcoming free time you might have.
Until you are able to contact me for some help moving from House Cleaning Napa to Doing Napa, here are some nitty-gritty tips that may ease your burden, of course the best starting place is getting organized which I touched on in another post which you can read here.
House Cleaning Napa Tips | the Kitchen:
- Wipe up spills in the refrigerator as soon as you notice them, and if you have time, do the rest of the shelf or any sloppy jar bottoms.
- Go through just one refrigerator or pantry shelf and toss anything that’s past the expiration date, that you’ll never use again or that’s less than a single serving.
- Toss the jumble of unused takeout disposable containers, glass jars and condiment packages you’ve collected.
- Wipe fingerprints off all the kitchen cabinets.
- As you cook, rinse dirty utensils, pots and pans and put them in the dishwasher. You’ll have the kitchen in good order when you sit down to eat, and you’ll have less to clean up after dinner.
- Ease the weekday morning rush by setting the table for breakfast before you go to bed. Put out cereal boxes, sweeteners and other nonperishable items. Prepare the coffeemaker and set the timer.
- If the dishwasher’s not full, add burner covers or small shelves from the refrigerator — anything that needs washing.
- While you’re talking on the phone or waiting on endless hold, clean out five to seven unwanted, unused things from the kitchen junk drawer or pantry or your purse.
House Cleaning Napa Tips | the Bathroom:
- Store a floor duster with disposable cloths in a closet near the bathroom. It will be easy to grab the duster and go over the floor during the week.
- If you use disposable makeup cloths to wash your face, rinse and reuse them to quick-clean the sink, counter or floor.
- After your family finishes brushing their teeth or shaving, use a dry terrycloth hand towel on the mirror and bathroom faucets to wipe away spots of lather so they won’t build up.
- Before getting out of the shower, clean the stall or tub and tiles with a squeegee.
House Cleaning Napa Tips | the Family Room:
- Go through magazine and catalog piles and discard outdated issues, three or five at a time. Toss junk mail daily.
- Vacuum just the high-traffic sections of the floor or carpet and do the other areas later.
- Before you go to bed, do a fast pickup: Put remote controls in a basket, tidy newspapers and loose papers or put them in the trash, clean off the coffee table, plump pillows and fold throws.
- If your children’s plastic toys look dirty, grab the worst two or three and clean them with a wet wipe or a paper towel moistened with rubbing alcohol.
- Quick-clean artificial flowers with the upholstery attachment of the vacuum cleaner.
- Vacuum lamp shades (turn off lamp before you dust) and the back of the TV.
- To freshen throw pillows, put them in the dryer, one or two at a time, on the air cycle.
- When you’re done vacuuming the floor and baseboards, use the upholstery attachment to dust one bookshelf.
That’s all for now,
