Great Economical Hints for Cleaning from Professionals

Few businesses succeed in this day and age without advertising services online. Phone books only come out once a year. I have often found when searching for a business in the phone book – white or yellow pages – that the business has changed their phone number, moved or is no longer in service. What you find online tends to be more current and you get much more information about the business on their website.

A business with a good website will not only advertise their services for hire, but they will give away helpful information, sharing hints with with potential customers. A friend showed me a book that had a multitude of tips for cleaning, but I discovered that you could not get any of that information unless you bought a book. There were no general hints or advice on the author’s website. 

Recently I found a good example of a website that not only advertises a helpful service, but shares hints for free. Their hints are also eco friendly and money saving. 


  •  published in the US before 1923 and public domain in the US. 

This website – – is the kind of website that customers will return to and possibly use the service in the future. Under the “cleaning tips” tab, these professional house cleaners state: “The Maids has positioned itself as a leader and expert in home cleaning and maid services. If cleaning your home is too daunting of a task, consider the following house cleaning tips as your ticket to a cleaner, healthier home and learn how to clean your home more efficiently from those in the know.”

Since this is a business site, I assume they apply those same hints in their work. They recommend replacing costly home cleaning products with the following:

  • Mix a paste of baking soda and vinegar to remove stubborn toilet bowl rings.
  • Rub windows down with a cotton-swab of rubbing alcohol to remove old cleaning product residue and wash with a mixture of two tablespoons vinegar and one-quart water.
  • Polish wood with three parts olive oil and one part white vinegar.
  • Use multi-purpose baking soda for scouring or to remove scuff-marks from vinyl floors. Add a small square of aluminum foil, boiling water, and it makes a great silver bath.

There are many other useful recommendations from these experts. I appreciate their resourceful guide and I bet you will, too. Check it out at
