Hosting Parties during the Holidays

During the holiday season, I adore hosting parties at my home. I always enjoy spending time with close friends and family members in a relaxed atmosphere. Are you already busily planning upcoming events at your home? Consider making your house look amazing when visitors arrive by hiring a professional cleaning service. A cleaning service can complete tedious chores such as vacuuming your carpets, mopping your hardwood floors, cleaning your oven, and dusting your furniture. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of hiring a cleaning service before your guests are expected to arrive. Your home can be a spotless party paradise.

2 Ways To Use A Toothbrush To Clean Your House


You might have not known that there are more uses for a toothbrush than simply brushing your teeth. A toothbrush is a great tool to clean your house with. Instead of throwing away your old toothbrushes, you should keep them and use them to clean those hard to reach areas. Here are two ways to use your toothbrush to keep your house looking clean.

Cleaning Keyboards

Over time, your toothbrush will become softer and softer as the bristles are used. Thus, instead of throwing away an old toothbrush where the bristles are too soft, you can use it as the perfect cleaning tool for your keyboard. Did you know that your keyboard contains as many, or more germs, than a toilet seat? Think about all the germs on your hands that are being transferred to your keyboard as you type and browse the Internet. This is why it is essential that you clean your keyboard as often as possible.

Because a toothbrush is soft and can reach small crevices, it is the ideal tool to clean your keyboard. Use some rubbing alcohol or a certified electronics detergent to clean the keyboard. Make sure that you turn the computer off before you start, and only clean the keyboard with the toothbrush. Apply a small amount of detergent to the brush and gently scrub away all the germs.

Cleaning Tile Grout

If you have tile in your house, you are probably familiar with the grout becoming discolored. Grout is the adhesive between each of the pieces of tile that hold the tile together and keep water out of the crevices. Because grout has groves, it is especially susceptible to dirt. In order to really clean the grout, you have to be able to scrub the small space with precision and detail. Using a toothbrush is the perfect way to clean the grout.

You can purchase specific grout cleaner to clean in between the tiles, or you can use vinegar and baking soda. In order to do this, sprinkle the baking soda around the grout and then spray vinegar on it. Let the solution bubble for just a short period of time, and then scrub the dirt away with the toothbrush. After you have loosened up all the dirt, take a wet towel and wipe the remains off.

After trying these simple yet effective tips for cleaning your house, you will be surprised at how well your keyboard and grout looks, with minimal materials and some old toothbrushes. For professional help with residential cleaning, contact a business like Kathy's Quality Cleaning, Inc.
