Listen to your ninja to keep your house clean between visits. She knows what she is talking about.
- Start at the Door: Keep doormats at all entrances to your home. Place a large rough mat outside your entry for wiping mud or snow off boots and shoes. Place an absorbent mat inside the entry to soak up moisture. This will catch a lot of the dirt that could eventually damage your carpets and floors.
- Vinyl Mini-Blinds Like Downy: Wipe mini-blinds with a damp fabric softener sheet. This will eliminate the static that causes dust to stick. This also works for computer and television screens.
- Conquer Bathroom Crust: To prevent soap scum build up on frosted shower doors or tile walls, apply a light coating of lemon oil or Gel Gloss with a soft cloth. Keep it off the floor though, as it could be slippery. Use a squeegee to remove excess water off the shower walls and door after every use, or wipe them down with a towel (preventive maintenance!).
- Pet Hair Everywhere: To remove pet hair from upholstery or fabric, slightly dampen a terry washcloth and lightly go over the fabric in one direction. Your pet’s hair will roll up making it easy to remove.
