How to: Minimalist Decorating

Every decade has its memorable trend in designs — vibrant colors ruled the 1960’s, shag carpeting covered floors in the 1970s, and no 1990s house was complete without floral drapes. And as for the last couple of years, no trend has permeated houses quite like minimalism (thank you, Marie Kondo!).

As it might be simple to assume a minimalism-inspired house is simpler to design (because there actually are fewer items to pick out, right?), it actually is the opposite. Contrary to belief, minimalist decorating may be as tricky as other styles of design. Luckily for you, maidREADY is here to assist you in kicking off spring and summer the proper way — with a minimalist house that is Instagram-worthy!

Break out the trash bags

Before even thinking about decorating and organizing, you have to declutter. We understand that it may be difficult, yet take a closer look into your kitchen or living room and ask yourself, “Do I actually love or need this?” If the answer is “no,” it is time for this item to be thrown out or donated.

You can never have too much neutral

As it’ll come to major pieces like your area rug, couch, and bedding, do not be afraid to stick to an extremely neutral pallet. Those basics aren’t just simple to match, yet they are going to automatically give your house a coordinated feel. As the basics are covered, add texture, pattern, as well as color in the form of greenery, throws, and pillows.

Allow natural light to flood the room

With the darkness of winter, at last, behind us, spring and summer is the ideal time to trade that heavy drapery in for light curtains which blow with the breeze and allow more natural lighting in. Plus, if all major pieces in the room are neutral and sleek, curtains are an additional excellent place to add a pop of texture and color.

Go frameless inside your bedroom

Are you looking to actually embrace the concept of less is more? Get rid of that bed frame and trade it in for a box spring and a mattress that is covered in a colorful throw and modern pillows.

Every house needs plants

Plants tend to be that trend that spans generations. If there is something every house needs, it is greenery! Plus, have no fear if you do not have a green thumb, as rubber and fake houseplants have come a very long way since you were young and are a low-maintenance, fantastic alternative to green, live plants.

Live Life in a House You Adore

Because neutral colors and clean lines rule the house, minimalist design does not hide messes as well as additional styles. Although, do not allow that to stop you from living your decorating dream! Rather than spending time cleaning the house, you ought to simply be enjoying it. maidREADY is here to make sure that happens.

How to Organize a Playroom

How to Organize a Playroom

How to Organize a Playroom

Once you’ve determined where your playroom space is going to be, it’s possible to start organizing. Here are tips that are provided by the experienced maid service of maidREADY to make an organized playroom.

 

Clean Home

Remove and declutter as much excess items as possible. Part with things your children have outgrown by donating them to a charity, relative, or friend who is going to make good use of them – It’s an excellent lesson for children. In addition, make sure you eliminate obvious clutter and move out of place objects back to their appropriate spaces. Broken toys either should be retired or fixed. A choice few favorite outgrown toys may be set aside for memory boxes.

 

See Things from a Child’s Viewpoint

You have heard of a bird’s eye view, yet have you gotten down on your hands and knees and looked at your home from your child’s viewpoint? Lower down to their level and browse your space – be on the lookout for hidden dangers – outlets, tippy furniture, breakable objects. Prime real estate for children is down low; therefore, keep the most-used things low and store any less-frequently used objects up on higher shelves. Select storage and furniture solutions they’re able to reach.

 

Get All Family Members Involved

Getting the entire family on board in the process of organization will help make sure that everyone is going to be involved with keeping up with the new set up. Children may assist in making decisions about what goes where, pick their favorite containers and create labels. If they’re able to get it out, they’re able to put it away.

 

Return Back to School

Kindergarten and preschool classrooms are a great showcase of organization; the key is to set zones up – crafts, reading, blocks, kitchen, etc. Sort out items and provide them main categories. The categories ought to make sense to the children.

 

Select the Proper Containers

Use well-labeled and clear open containers so contents are identified easily. That way everyone may assist with clean up. Keep all containers manageable and small for the kiddies, so they do not wind up dumping them everywhere. If children know where items go and it is easy to place it there, they will be more likely to help place all of it away.

 

Make a Toy Library

If you do not have room to have all the toys out, try to rotate toys. Do that by sending a choice to a ‘toy library.’ Toy libraries may be a closet or bin out of the way in which excess toys can be stored. Children may bring a toy to their toy library to be changed out with something else as they require a change of pace.

 

Keep it Simple and Take it Easy

Keep in mind that life with children is a little messy – and that is okay! While keeping organized as you have children is both beneficial and possible, it also is great to remember that life with children can simply be messy. The key to remaining sane and your keeping your home in check includes having simplistic systems which make for easy and quick clean up.

How to Declutter your Closet

How to Declutter your Closet

How to Declutter your Closet

 

Here, we offer 10 steps in decluttering your closet:

 

Evaluate Your Main Obstacles

Are your shoes taking over your closet space? Try to get an over-the-door organizer or hanging-shoe rack. Are your clothes overcrowded? Thinner hangers will create space in order for you to locate things more conveniently. Feeling hurried every morning?  Dividing dresses, shirts, jeans, etc. bring a sense of organization and saves you time. Solving your main problem motivates you to make your dream closet.

 

Make it a Family Effort

Getting your husband and children involved in organizing may make a difference in your family’s daily life. Everyone ought to be in charge of her or his own accessories, clothes, and toys. It’ll cut your cleaning time by 50% and make sure nothing critical is mistakenly tossed out.

 

Take One Hour

Scheduling a mere 60 minutes per week really can make a dent within your cluttered, overstuffed closet. If you cannot spare that much time, try 2 (30 minutes) sessions. If you constantly are being interrupted by “Hey Mama!” — ask your husband to take the children out for the afternoon.

 

Start from Scratch

Take all items out of the closet. If you do not remove it all, odds are the same unworn clothing will be moved around your closet. Now it is time to sort. Toss away damaged and old clothes. Donate what you do not need or do not wear.

 

Out with Old

Remove things which have no business in the closet. Insurance information, bank statements, or tax documents do not belong next to your sweaters, scarves, and shoes. Make a Life.doc that organizes and stores all your critical paperwork in one place. File the rest of the documents inside a milk crate or office cabinet.

 

Organize Sections

Designate a space for everything in the closet. Sweaters in one place, shoes in another, etc. It’ll assist you in keeping order and save you time every morning. Make good use of the space. Putting in shelves is going to double your storage and assist t-shirts and sweaters in better keeping their shape.

 

Apply 80/20 Rule

You might not want to admit it; however, most clothes you own likely go unworn. It is said that the average person in America only wears 10% – 20% of their clothes. To slash down on the fluff, take out items you have not worn in one year. Drop off all excess at the Goodwill or arrange a clothing swap with pals.

 

Place One In; Take One Out

For every new item you purchase to put inside the closet, donate one thing (or throw it away if it is past its prime). It’ll keep you from going back to your hoarder ways.

 

Keep It Going

Commit 15 minutes per week to straightening the closet after a “big clean”. Spending this tiny quantity of time will make sure you never need to go through a huge rehaul again.

Reward Yourself

Recognize then celebrate what you have accomplished. Treat yourself to new hangers or purchase that silk shirt you have had your eye on. Now, there’s room for it!

Why is Move In/ Out Cleaning Important?

Why is Move In/ Out Cleaning Important?

Moving represents a big turning point within your family’s lives yet it also can bring upheaval, stress, as well as huge interruptions to your schedule. The last thing you want to be concerned with, on top of all other things, is move in/ out cleaning.

 

As you move, there are a couple of sets of cleaning activities to take into consideration: the ones at your old home and the ones at your new home. An expert cleaning crew is able to deal with both and get them accomplished more effectively and faster than you might do on your own.

 

At your Old Residence:

Once you have loaded your truck and moved all items out of your old home, you will be surprised by how much of a mess gets left behind. Your cleaning team will take care of it while you are on your way to your new residence. Make certain to ask about the following services:

  • Carpet Cleaning: If you have not yet sold your old home, cleaning the carpeting might be the most critical thing to do to make sure your home is as appealing to house hunters as possible.
  • Windows: Grimy windows obstruct lighting, and make the house seem dirtier and darker than it actually is. Have your sills, tracks, and windows cleaned professionally.
  • Whole Home Cleaning: Even if your home already has been sold, the realtor (and new homeowners) are going to appreciate it if you leave the home in move-in shape.

 

At the New House:

The last thing you need to see as you enter the new house is somebody else’s dirt. Have a cleaning crew enter before you get there to inspect and clean the important systems in the home, so it is prepared the minute you arrive. If the home is not in move-in shape, consider booking the same service at the new home that are important at the old house. There are some also essential services you will want to include at your new residence:

  • Removal of debris: If you have had any work done on your new home, like remodeling or painting, there might be construction debris left over. Your contractor ought to clean their mess up, yet there might be dust, dirt, or small pieces of trash that they have missed. An expert cleaning team will look for those things then remove them.
  •  
  • Air Duct Cleaning and Inspection: The HVAC systems in your house keep you comfortable yet they also can collect years of pet dander, dust, and additional contaminants. Have them cleaned before moving in, particularly if you or somebody in your family experiences asthma, allergies, or respiratory issues.

 

Having a cleaning team care for the inevitable mess ought to make the move less stressful and easier. Make certain that you hire an experienced, reputable professional to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Ways to Clean a Tub

Ways to Clean a Tub

Ways to Clean a Tub

 

Tubs are havens for soap scum, bacteria, and hard water stains. Almost nothing is better than a clean, shining bathtub. Very few things are worse than a stained, grimy bathtub. All of us have seen those tubs that have the ring around the basin and soap ledge with all of that crust. It happens. Nowadays, our routines are so busy. It is simple to understand how the tub gets neglected. That is why we have shared some of our true and tried ways to clean a tub.

 

The best method of cleaning the tub is to use green, eco-friendly cleaning supplies. The great news is that you already have the majority of the ingredients hanging out inside your cabinet! With a bit of vinegar, baking soda, and peroxide, it’s possible to be equipped to easily neutralize tub odors and stains.

  • Step one toward a clean tub includes removing any bath mats, shower curtain liners, and personal hygiene products from the space. You should begin with a clear area.
  • Then, spray the whole space with a vinegar solution.
  • Allow it to sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • With a toothbrush or soft bristle scrub brush, loosen debris and wash off dirt.
  • For stubborn stains, it’s possible to use a mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Peroxide is a bleach alternative and may assist in lifting those stubborn stains.
  • Rinse the space using clean water.
  • After using the bathtub, keep mold, mildew, and soap scum away by spraying the space using a vinegar solution.

 

Healthy Tub Cleaning Solutions

 

Vinegar – It’s an excellent green cleaning solution to use in tubs. It is perfect as a brightener, all-purpose cleaner, and herbicide. It is fantastic for tub cleaning when lime or mold is present.

 

Hydrogen Peroxide – Utilize hydrogen peroxide to destroy mold and mildew and use in conjunction with baking soda while creating grout cleaning pastes. Hydrogen peroxide is an antiviral, anti-fungal, antibacterial and is a safe, eco-friendly alternative to bleach.

 

Baking Soda – As it is time to scrub the tub out, baking soda is your best friend. Due to its alkaline pH, it’s an exceptional moisture-absorbing mold destroyer and mild abrasive cleanser. Utilize baking soda instead of chemical abrasives and additional harsh cleaners.

 

Tea Tree Oil – It’s possible to utilize a dilution of tea tree oil as an anti-fungal or antibacterial solution to assist in keeping your tub free of bacteria and mold.

 

Perhaps nobody knows the value in a clean tub better than the house cleaning pros at MintyMaids. As we clean your bathtub and home, it’s possible to rest easy knowing that you are getting a quality professional cleaning that is free of dangerous chemicals.

 

Life gets hectic, and busy folks use MintyMaids as their solution in housekeeping professionals. Allow us to help you take the following step toward an immaculate home and lighter personal routine by taking the burden off of your shoulders. Call maidREADY at (204) 272-7337 right away!

Ways to Eliminate Flies in Your Home

Ways to Eliminate Flies in Your Home

Ways to Eliminate Flies in Your Home

 

Houseflies are attracted to a lot of things. Typically, the leading culprits are decaying matter like pet droppings and old garbage, sweet soda, alcohol, and overripe fruit. Outside the house, flies are drawn to pet food containers that contain uncovered garbage, leftover food, thick shrubbery which offers cover and all decomposing matter such as dead animals or animal droppings upon the floor.

 

Flies: Are they dangerous?

Do not allow your house to become a fly breeding ground. Flies carry several diseases, which includes tuberculosis, typhoid, dysentery, and cholera. House flies gather those pathogens upon their mouths and legs while feeding on trash, feces, and additional decaying material. They also are notorious for carrying the eggs of worms and carrying salmonella and anthrax.

 

 Ways to eliminate flies with natural remedies

Be certain that you do not have exposed foods or garbage outside or inside your house that may attract flies. Frequently empty the trash and utilize a trash can that has a lid. As you prepare fruits or additional sweet treats, be certain to properly store them inside sealed containers in order to deter flies.

If you need to know ways to naturally eliminate flies inside your house, there are some methods to attempt to clear your area.

 

Vinegar trap

  • Inside a little jar, make a mix of ½ c. apple cider vinegar and a couple of drops of soap.
  • Flies are attracted to vinegar and, as they fly in, the soap traps them and they will be done for. A vinegar trap is an excellent remedy for fruit flies.

 

Flypaper strips

  • In order to create flypaper strips, all that’s needed is some thread, a hole punch, sugar, scissors, paper, and corn syrup.
  • Cut paper into 2” wide strips.
  • Punch a hole inside the top of every strip.
  • Blend ½ c. corn syrup & ¼ c. sugar.
  • Coat a part of the strip with the mix.
  • Hang strips inside the spaces in which the flies usually hang out.

 

Homemade Repellent

  • You will have to invest in a tin can, sponge and around ½ c. lavender oil.
  • Then, sip sponge inside essential lavender oil.
  • For 24 hours, seal sponge inside can.
  • Place the can inside the affected space then open the lid and leave for a few hours.
  • It ought to disperse flies from the space. It’s possible to reuse the mixture by adding even more essential lavender oil to your sponge in order to keep its potency high. Keep leftover essential oil inside a container.

 

Knowing the risks of bug repellents and fly killers

It may be convenient to visit the grocery store and purchase a commercial bug killer, yet there are some risks involved. Most bug repellents have chemicals such as DEET which ought to be utilized with extreme care or avoided.

 

The home cleaning pros at MintyMaids are committed to offering the highest possible housekeeping service. With MintyMaid’s assistance, it’s possible to rest easy knowing that all of the home surfaces are going to be thoroughly sanitized and cleaned to prevent flies.
