Kitchen Cleaning Tips From a Charlotte NC Pro!

Cleaning the kitchen can be a messy job. You may dread the thought of emptying your sink after the dishes have been piling up for days, full of caked on food and gunk that seems like it’s going to be impossible to clean off. Or maybe you have kids who are constantly dropping cheerios and crumbs on the floor, along with their supposedly “spill-proof” soppy cups that are full of apple juice that somehow makes its way out and forms a sticky mess that you don’t notice until you have a pest infestation…

Does any of this sound familiar? If you hate cleaning your kitchen, I’m here to tell you there are ways to make it go much faster and easier. Here are my best tips for cleaning your kitchen and keeping your sanity in the process.

Tip #1: Clean as you go. We spend a lot of time prepping food in the kitchen and it doesn’t take long for counters to fill up and dishes to pile up. A good rule of thumb that I like to use in my own house is “clean as you go,” which simply means to clean while you cook. After you prep your food, while it’s cooking on the stove or in the oven, that’s a great time to clean the dishes you used to prep and to wipe the counters. When you’re finished eating, you’ll just have a few pots and pans to clean. You can place your plates and utensils into the dishwasher, wipe down the kitchen table, and you’re done!

Tip #2: Put as many dishes as you can into the dishwasher. You actually use less water when you operate the dishwasher vs. washing your dishes by hand. So if it’s dishwasher safe, I recommend letting your dishwasher do the work for you!

Tip #3: Pre-soak hard-to-clean pots and pans. A little baking soda and some warm water goes a long way toward making your stainless steel shiny again. You may also want to use a little dish soap as well. If you pre-soak them, they’ll be much easier to clean. You won’t have to use as much elbow grease.

Tip #4: Let Rover eat your scraps. If you have a dog, don’t be afraid to call him over to the table when your toddler drops his food on the floor. Just make sure the dropped food is on the safe-to-eat list for pets. There are some foods that dogs cannot safely consume.

Tip #5: Relax! Play some music and try to have fun. Cleaning doesn’t have to be a chore you dread. And if you dread it that much, then you may want to consider my last tip…

Tip #6: Hire a professional. At the end of the day, if you really hate cleaning, it will only add more stress to your life. A professional house cleaner can help you retain your sanity by doing the hard work for you. I have spent many years cleaning kitchens and actually find a lot of enjoyment in the task, which is why I’ve chosen to make it my full-time business.

The Clean Before the Clean

the clean before the clean

So you’ve decided to hire a professional house cleaning company for your home in Rock Hill or Charlotte … you took a look around and the mess was so great it made you want to cry. There’s no way you’ll ever have the time to pick up your children’s toys, empty the kitchen sink, or do the 5 loads of laundry that have piled up over weeks and weeks.

You look online and see Rock Hill Cleaning Superheroes and decide to give Jennifer a call. First off, I just want to say thank you for making that decision. I will not let you down! Second, I want to ask that you please not worry about the clean before the clean. You know what I’m talking about. That quick scramble you do to straighten up before your house cleaner gets here to do the rest. After all, you wouldn’t want me to see the mess you’re living in, right?

You may think your mess is unbecoming and that I’m going to take one look at your house want want to walk right out the door, but nothing could be further from the truth! I want you to know that there is absolutely NO judgement on my part. You can leave your mess just the way it is. In fact, I encourage you to leave the house for the duration of my cleaning. Let me take care of everything for you.

My passion is helping people in need, and homeowners with messy houses definitely fall into that group! We’ve all done it. Hired a professional, but did a little “pre-gaming” beforehand just to make sure we didn’t look bad in front of them once they arrived. As if your housekeeper is “company” that you need to entertain or impress?

(Nudge, nudge, wink, wink … am I right?)

Girl, please. 😉

You have enough to worry about. If you’re going to spend money on house cleaning services, then you may as well get the most bang for your buck, right? I want you to enjoy yourself. That’s why you’re hiring me in the first place. Take your husband and your kids to the mountains or the beach. Go on a mini-vacation with your family and come home to freshly cleaned house. I’ll do everything, from picking up your children’s toys to folding and putting away your laundry.

I understand that people like things done a certain way. That’s why we provide free consultations, where I sit down with you and discuss your needs and wants beforehand. I’ll also take some time to get familiar with your living space. That way I know where to put your glassware, folded laundry, and other items. I wouldn’t want you to come home to a house where you’re unable to find your things because I’ve hidden them in unfamiliar places!

So this is my plea to you. As someone who deserves some much-needed “me” time, please don’t worry about the clean before the clean. There’s only one clean, and it’s the one I’ll take care of on your behalf. You need time off, so take it! I can even throw a roast and some veggies into the crock pot for you so you can come home to a clean house and a warm meal. Just say the word. My goal is your 100% satisfaction, guaranteed.

I know what you’re thinking … you’re probably reading this to yourself and saying at this very minute, “I need to at least straighten up the clutter and pick up my kids’ toys before Jennifer arrives.” No you don’t! My house cleaning company is a one-stop shop. De-cluttering and organization are part of my cleaning service offerings, and they are there for you to take full advantage of.
