Housekeeping secrets

HOUSEKEEPING SECRETS.... timing and towels


As professional housekeepers know well - working smarter can save you some of that hard work. 

Sometimes giving those bathrooms a dream clean involves a close up - up close and personal with the dirt.  

The key is to let your cleaning products do the work for you. Spray the shower walls and the toilet and leave them to do their job for several minutes. Use that time to clean the mirrors, windows, medicine cabinet, and whatever else is in the room. Then go back and wash off the surfaces, thus using less elbow grease.

Hotel experts also recommend the good old fashioned use of a toothbrush once in a while. There’s nothing like a few small brushes to get into those tiny cracks in the bathroom. The bottom screws of a toilet are the hardest parts to get without this little helper.

Speaking of winning small battles, when faced with all those face and hand towels lying around on the floor, use it as a reminder to have a ‘towel check’ day to see if any replacements are required.
