Movers Tips for Cleaning the New Home or Old Home


When moving a lot of the focus is set on actually moving all of your belonging from one place to the next but don’t forget about cleaning as you leave and maybe once you get to the new place. Being in the moving industry you pick up a few cleaning tips along the way. First and foremost it’s always easiest to work your way from the deepest point of the home out towards the exit, that way no one is walking back through a clean area to re-clean. Start from top to bottom when cleaning anything for the same reasoning, there’s no sense in re-cleaning what was you just cleaned.

Removing a Carpet Stain: A mix of hydrogen peroxide and blue dawn dish detergent will get out most any carpet (and mattress) stains.

Toilet Bowl Rings: Cut a corner off of a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and put it in the toilet bowl overnight, no scrubbing necessary, just a flush.

Household Odors: Put two cap fulls of Vanilla Extract in a coffee cup, place it in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour. Also take baking soda and sprinkle it on the carpet, let it sit for 15-30 minutes then vacuum.
Scuff Marks: Using WD-40 and a scrub brush should take those scuffs right out.

Dishwasher Stains or Deposits: Run a packet of Kool-Aid brand Lemonade flavor through and empty cycle and it will knock out lime deposits or rust stains.

Unclog a Drain: Pour ½ a box of baking soda dry down the drain, grab a towel and a bottle of vinegar, pour the vinegar down the drain and stuff the opening with the towel tightly. Wait 30 minutes, take the towel out and then take a pot of boiling water and pour it down the drain.

Dirty Showerhead: Take a rubberband and a big Ziploc bag, place the showerhead in the Ziploc and fill it with vinegar just enough to submerse the showerhead, use the rubberband to hold the Ziploc bag in place and wait an hour.
