Why buy cleaning products when you can make your own cleaning solution at home? Plus, they’re green and safe for you and the environment, and highly effective to use too!

Cajun Maids, the top maid service provider in Lake Charles, Lafayette, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, have prepared these amazing DIY cleaning tips for you:

Windows & Baseboards

Streak-free window is so awesome to go unnoticed.  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

Towels and linens are perfect breeding site for mildew for they often stay damp for long periods of time. You can’t have guests coming over your home and your towels are a little smelly, can you? 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.


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.


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.


There’s no hiding a dirty toilet. This is where guests spend time alone so there’s a good chance an unkempt toilet will be noticed. 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.

So there you have it! If you still need help in cleaning and you get overwhelmed with all the chores, don’t hesitate to give a call to the leading maid service provider in Lake Charles, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans, Cajun Maids, and get wowed!
