Are you mopping your floors the right way? Check out these tips!

 

1. Mop items to move underneath. You never know what’s hiding under there! Lift the items, mop, and place them back before mopping the rest of the space.

2. Mop with the grain. This will prevent streaks on your floors as the water dries!

3. Use the proper amount of product. Always check the product labels for the correct measurements. Too much product will make your floors sticky, while too little won’t clean them properly.

4. Don’t use too much water. Most likely, your floors don’t need to be as wet as you may think. Depending on your floor type, too much water could cause damage!

5. Replace your water frequently. As soon as your water starts looking a little murky, dump it and refill your bucket. Don’t mop your floors with dirty water!

Follow these easy steps:

 

1. Start with a fitted sheet. You need to start with a good canvas! Get your fitted sheet as smooth as possible!

2. Grab your top sheet. Put your top sheet on the bed, with about a foot of extra fabric at the head of the bed. Tuck the sheet under your mattress or into your bed frame, as tight and smooth as you can get it!

3. Next, the duvet. Straighten your duvet on your mattress, then fold that extra fabric from your top sheet over the top of your duvet, creating a crisp fold. Tuck your duvet into your bed frame or under your mattress if you like a tightly-tucked bed!

4. Fluff those pillows! Put your sleeping pillows first, with your shams next and your throw pillows last! Fluff them so they stand up nicely.

5. Lastly, the throw blanket. Fold your throw blanket nicely and voila! You have a perfectly-made bed!

What You’ll Need:

– A vacuum with an upholstery attachment
– Stain remover or dish soap
– Laundry detergent
– Baking soda
– Cleaning cloths
– Cold water

How To Do It:

1. Strip your bed and wash your bedding. Once your mattress is clean, you’ll want to crawl into bed with fresh sheets, too!

2. Use the upholstery attachment and vacuum your mattress.  Go over the entire surface of the mattress, including the sides. 

3. Spot clean your mattress. Use a stain remover by putting it on a clean cloth and spot cleaning. Be careful not to soak your mattress. 

4. Sprinkle baking soda all over the mattress. Sprinkle a layer of baking soda all over the mattress and leave for as many hours as you can. The longer the better! 

5. Vacuum again. Thoroughly vacuum all the baking soda off the mattress. 

6. Flip the mattress and do it again!

1. Empty out your closet

You heard me- take it ALL out! Start with a fresh & empty canvas!

2. Purge!

Be honest- will you really wear that sweater at the back of your closet ever again? This tip alone will make a HUGE difference to your closet!

3. Organize by season

You really don’t need your winter gear taking up space in your closet all summer! If you don’t have much space to store out-of-season clothing, check out these vacuum storage bags! 

4. Find a system you love

If you hate hanging your clothes, invest in a few bins to toss things into! If you prefer hanging things up, maybe you could add another rack into your closet! When your system works WITH you, you’ll be set up for success!
