Check Out These Cleaning Tricks Your Maid Should Really Know How To Do Already
Admit it—nothing stresses you out like keeping a tidy home. From family to friends, working out to wealth management, it’s hard to find the time to keep everything spick and span. Thankfully, we’ve got a few tips that’ll make cleaning a breeze, as long as your maid is paying attention when you explain them to her. How much are you paying her again? Because you’re busy, and she should honestly know a lot of these already.
Natural Disinfectants Are Effective And Eco-Friendly
Not enough people know that you can use grapefruit seed extract as a disinfectant. Obviously, your cleaning lady probably picked this up in whatever country she’s from. I want to say Poland or, which country did Transylvania turn into? Now those people are poor, like “eat a boiled boot” poor, so they’ve got all kinds of shortcuts and old world tricks. Still, it’s a fun tip worth passing along in case she somehow missed the migrant maid memo, but remember, it isn’t your job to make her good at hers. You have enough on your plate. Actually, aren’t you running late to yoga right now?
Squeaky Clean Sponges At The Press Of A Button
Wherever she’s from, your maid should know that popping your sponges in the microwave for two minutes will completely disinfect them. If she doesn’t, well, we both know who would—your old cleaning woman. Now there was a gal who knew how to clean a toilet. You might want to look her up sometime. Sure, she said she didn’t want to work for you anymore, but maybe her health took a turn, and she’s got bills to pay. Just a thought. It’s so hard to find good help these days, and now that you’ve found all the jewelry you thought she stole, you can probably unreport her to the INS.
Frosty Holders Make Cleaner Candles
Wait, are you still reading this? Honey, this part is for the maid, housekeeper, or in a pinch, the nanny. Just print it out and stick it in her bucket. Maybe explain the bullet points in case she can’t read, but don’t stress. You’re an important person with a family, a complicated divorce, and fingers crossed, a new Etsy business. So what if you don’t have time to clean, cook, or cuddle your children? You can afford not to. You’re an innovator. Anyway, just tell her to stick your used votive candle holders in the freezer until the wax shrinks and then scrape them out. She’ll get it if she takes this job seriously.
Lemons Clean Garbage Disposals
Okay, so the missus is gone, right? I’m assuming you found this article under your stack of twenties. Let me see if I can explain this to you in a way you’ll understand. HELLO! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME? DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH? CLEAN GARBAGE DISPOSAL WITH LEMONS! Okay, this is going to be tough. CAN YOU GET SOMEONE ELSE TO READ THIS TO YOU? DOES YOUR BUILDING HAVE A DOORMAN? Oh, boy. Look, just cram some lemons in the disposal, or something. I’m not entirely sure the details on this one, but feel free to Google it. Are you allowed to use the missus’s computer? No, of course you aren’t. Okay, maybe just skip this trick and say you did it if she asks. We both know she has no idea what you do and don’t do. That woman probably doesn’t even know her own kids’ names, which are awful, by the way. Dolton? Seriously? Actually, while I have you here, if you’re ever looking for a new gig, my girl isn’t working out, and I need someone Tuesdays and Thursdays. Also, do you cook by any chance? Just let me know.
