The kids are almost out of school and that means they’re about to be spending a lot more time at home…which also means more dust, dirt and crumbs. We’ve put together a few cleaning tips that will help you whip the house back in shape after the kids start going stir crazy.
When the Kids Get Too Artistic…
Art belongs on walls, but we recommend making sure they’re on a canvas first! Sometimes kids get carried away and who can blame them for wanting to put their art on display for all to see? When your little Picasso gets carried away and takes their marker to the newly painted wall don’t freak out, we’re here to help! Try scrubbing lightly with a damp sponge sprinkled in baking soda, this combination should help in making those unwanted colors disappear.
Long summer days mean more time spent outside, so when the summer showers hit prepare for the mud! We know it can be tempting to try and wipe off muddy boots but give it some time and let it dry. Dry dirt is much easier to remove then gluey mud. Keep the shoes close to the back door that way you can stomp them out to chip away at the dirt. If you’ve still got some messy spots that just don’t want to budge take a bit of water and dish soap to them. Clean as new!
Let us know if you try any of these tricks or if you have any yourself that help you get through summer with the kids bouncing off the walls.
