CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE TIPS!

We all have the odd incident that we wonder what to do while cleaning around the house. Below are some tips for common everyday How-To’s.  Enjoy!  

Is vinegar a good alternative to cleaning products?   

Distilled white vinegar is incredibly versatile and affordable.  This natural cleaner easily cuts through mildew, bacteria and grime and is safe to use on a wide verity of surfaces.  

How often should I wash towels and what is best way? 

Wash your towels every three to four days.  To prevent colors from bleeding, wash colored towels with similar shades in warm water.  Use half the amount of detergent while washing and add 1/2 to 1 cup of white vinegar to the water during the rinse cycle.  The vinegar helps set the colors and removes excess detergent residue.  Note: Washing towels with clothes can transfer germs and bacteria between items in the wash.  For sanitary reasons it is best to wash towels separately from clothing. Use vinegar instead of fabric softeners, it softens clothes and removes the static in clothing.  Just add a cup to the final wash or rinse cycle. 

How do I care for sheeting?

Like towels, wash sheeting separately from towels or clothing.  This gives the sheets more room to circulate in the water.  It also prevents damage caused by zippers and other fasteners.  Always pretreat stains before laundering. If you want to brighten white sheets, add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to the wash water. Use a mild detergent for cotton and cotton-poly blend sheets. When possible dry sheets outside out of the direct sun.  If in dryer use on lower heat setting to minimize damage of high temperatures. Remove sheets from the dryer as soon as cycle is over and old them immediate smoothing wrinkles with your hands. If wrinkles have set, dry the sheets for an additional 5 minutes with a damp towel tossed into the mix to add moisture. 

What should I do if a dog vomits on my bedding?

Try a lemon and salt soak or white vinegar soak on spot, to spot treat and clean but do not dry in dryer, line dry/air dry.  Do not use heat to dry, as it may set stain.
