Do a walk-through with a visitor’s eye and make sure to note stuff that need the most attention, and those imperfections you may be used to but guests may notice, like houseplants with dead leaves. You also might want to grab a box, and toss in miscellaneous stuff that you don’t need, or simply get rid of little clutter here and there. Now that you have decluttered the house a bit, and have noted the areas that need more cleaning, let’s go to the main stuff.
Windows & Baseboards. Mix one to two teaspoons of dish detergent in a large bucket of warm water and scrub the surface using a squeegee to remove suds. For baseboards, dry brush the dust off, then follow up with a warm washcloth/sponge and soap. Use cotton swabs for hard-to-clean corners.
Towels & Linens. This DIY may do the trick of getting rid of the smell: wash the towel with a quarter cup of baking soda and water, then wash it again with your regular detergent with a quarter cup of vinegar. Lastly, dry the fabric in a drying machine using the hottest and longest setting.
Refrigerator. Clean out your refrigerator to make room for party foods. While you’re at it, wipe down large and small appliances in the kitchen. Make your own all-purpose cleaner with this recipe: mix 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda (or 2 tsps borax) into 2 liters water.
Floors. Get your floor spotless. If you have hardwood flooring, soak a cloth in tea and wash down the floors. For laminate, add two tablespoons of baby shampoo to a gallon of water then mop. Or, just use your favorite cleaning solution.
Toilet. For bathroom tiles, pre-clean with a spray cleaner. Use a bleach solution to kill mold and mildew and a vinegar solution to clean grout. Apply a soap scum remover. Polish tiles with a soft towel.
And if you really can’t find time to do the cleaning, then you’re next resort would be to ask help from the professionals. Look for a maid service which is local in your area – they’re less expensive compared to large franchising companies and it is more likely easy to negotiate with them in terms with service inclusions, pricing, and schedules. Cajun Maids provides top-quality maid and janitorial services in the cities of Lake Charles, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans and all smaller areas in between.
