Cleaning Grout

If you have tiled kitchen or bathroom floors, countertops, or backsplashes, then you have grout. If you don't have any tiles in your home, grout is the gritty material used between the tiles.

Grout comes in many colors and can make or break the look of the tile in your home. Keeping it clean keeps it fresh and looking like new.

If you don’t maintain the grout, it becomes nasty and dingy looking.

If you need to clean grout, take a look at these grout cleaning and stain removal tips.

Cleaning your Computer

Most of us use our computers daily, but how often do you think about cleaning it? Cleaning your computer and its components will keep it working properly. Cleaning your computer will also help from spreading germs.

How often should you give your computer a good cleaning? That depends on several factors such as your environment; are you using it in the home or office, do you have animals, is the computer on the floor, on a carpeted floor, do you eat and drink around the computer?

A thorough cleaning may need to be done a couple times throughout the year, but at the very least the monitor, keyboard, and outer surfaces should be done weekly or bi-weekly to prevent the possibility of spreading germs.

We can help you learn how to properly clean your computer with these great cleaning tips.

Cleaning the Refrigerator

What is that Smell Coming from Your Refrigerator?

There is plenty of leftover food that gets stored in our refrigerators or food items we just never got around to using (or couldn't find) that can cause some really bad smells and that – can be just a bit disturbing.

I don’t know about you but I’ve opened some refrigerators and the smell can just knock my socks off and completely make me lose my appetite.

So if you go poking your head in a fridge and it smells a bit putrefied, whether it’s yours or a family member, it’s time to tell someone that Now! is a good time to clean the refrigerator.

I mean mold, bacteria and mildew growing within the fridge is not a place I want to be grabbing my food from.

If the fridge is stinking, your option is to give it a good cleaning. Completely go through it and toss old foods and condiments.

Clean the inside, take out the drawers (clean them out and underneath). Wipe everything dry when you’re done and put only the good stuff back in.

Tips for Keeping Your Refrigerator Smelling Odor Free

These are probably no brainer tips but I’m going to list them anyway.
  1. Clean up spills as soon as they happen and adopt a policy where whoever spills, cleans it up, no waiting until Mom gets home. Unless someone really needs your help say taking out a drawer or something.
  2. Store your food in covered containers and be sure to put the lid on all the way. If you’re covering a plate of food, make sure the saran wrap covers the dish (which usually means using two pieces of saran wrap). I have also found some stretch to fit food covers that work very nicely (and can be washed), they are pretty much like a shower cap.
  3. Monitor your leftovers. Really only a couple of days should go by before you toss them out and if you’re just not the kind of family then don’t keep them. I know people that never eat leftovers but hate to waste, so the food gets stored and forgotten about.
  4. Monitor the temperature. Most refrigerators are pretty good at keeping a consistent temperature but if yours is being opened and closed all day or if someone doesn’t close the door, it could change the temperature settings.
  5. Keep an open box of baking soda in the back of the refrigerator to help keep it fresh.
Cleaning the fridge doesn’t have to be a hard task nor a long task but it really should be done at least a couple of times throughout the year, more if you’re a large family.
