Cleaning Tips


Removing Wax from Carpet:

 Freeze to harden the wax. Gently scrape to remove excess from the surface. To prevent damage to the backing, add a small amount of Afta Cleaning Fluid or K2r Spot Lifter. Blot with an absorbent pad. Continue until no more stain is removed.  If a dye remains, dilute one part rubbing alcohol with two parts water and apply it to the stain in small amounts, blotting well after each application.  Allow to dry.

Remove wax from a wood surface:

You can either heat it up with a hair dryer and rub it off with a cloth, or freeze it with ice and gently scrape the wax off with a credit card.

Pet Pee – Vinegar and baking soda, alternating. (Place white distilled vinegar in a spray bottle and spray it straight onto the pee assuming the area can handle moisture; let it set for an hour or so before rinsing. Follow by sprinkling the area with baking soda. Mist the baking soda with water. Let it set for a few hours before vacuuming. Keep alternating until the odor is gone.)

 Remove odor

Try to determine what the odor is from -- throw out old food, take out the garbage, run the garbage disposal, clean smelly shoes and dog beds, change the cat box. Open all the windows.  Soak a cotton ball in clove oil, lemon extract, peppermint or vanilla extract; place it in a plastic bag or container with holes, and place in the smelly room

 Remove Gum

Gum can be removed using ice. Place an ice cube on the gum. When the gum hardens, use a dull knife to remove it.

Clean a grimy microwave

Put a damped cloth in the microwave and set the time to 2 minutes. When it’s ready wait one minute and then open up the microwave and with the damped cloth wipe out the microwave, those tough spaghetti stains come right out.

 Deodorize the garbage disposal

Pour in 1/2 cup baking soda and 1/2 cup hot white distilled vinegar. Let sit for 5 minutes then run hot water down the disposal.

 Soap scum in tubs and showers

Squeegee water off shower walls and doors after every use or wipe them down with a towel.

Toilet bowl ring removal

For an old ring, use a pumice stone. Wet the stone with the water in the bowl and rub it on the ring keep the stone wet the entire time you're scrubbing. Pumice stones should only be used on vitreous china toilets - never on colored, enamel or plastic fixtures. Once you've gotten rid of a ring, weekly cleanings should keep it from coming back
