No matter how carefully and thoroughly you clean your kitchen, there is still a chance that bad odor will linger in the air. The sources of the smell can be various, and even if every surface and the last cup from the dinner are sparklingly clean, there is still a possibility that you will have to locate the source and neutralize it. For this purpose, you will not need to posses special skills or get yourself some fancy equipment. All you have to do is follow your nose until you find out what is causing all the trouble.

Once you have done that, proceed in accordance to the type of emergency you have:

  • If the smell comes from the fridge, throw away any expired food from it. If the problem persists even after you did this, simply wipe down the walls, shelves and other surfaces inside and outside the fridge and you will see that the bad-odor problem is fixed.

  • In order to avoid bad odor from the trash can to enter your kitchen, there is one simple thing to do – put several slices of lemon on the bottom of the can. Next time you take away the trash, just replace the slices with fresh ones and you will notice the positive change.

  • Fish smell is neutralized by placing a bowl or a cup of regular bleach somewhere in the kitchen while cooking. Make sure it is positioned in a way that you do not hit it accidentally and splash bleach everywhere around. This will fix the smelly fish problem.

  • Kitchen CleaningPlastic containers are useful, but over time they accumulate such bad odor that they become nearly useless. A magical solution for that problem is simply cleaning well the container. Then dry it even better, put a crumbled piece of newspaper inside and close it. Let it sit through the night, and when you throw away the paper the next day, you will notice that the smell is gone too.

  • If you have wooden kitchen supplies like cutting boards, salad utensils, cups, bowls etc. you know how unpleasant they may smell from time to time. Rubbing their surfaces with a slice of lemon always leads to great results with minimal effort.

Cleaning your home office – the hassle-free solution

Home Office CleaningWorking from home could be both a blessing and a curse. Among the many problems that may occur while you are earning your living from the home office you have set up in the spare bedroom or the garage, maintaining the place in a comfortable, tidy and representative state could very well turn out to be the hardest one or the troubles of end of tenancy. But have no fear, with these tested strategies that are proven to provide great results, you will never have to worry about your home office cleaning again.

  • Clutter is often the biggest problem in every office. There is a very good possibility that paper piles around every corner of your home office too. So make a habit of filing everything immediately after you have used the document in question. This will not only spare you a lot of effort in your special home office cleaning day, but will make your work more organized and will optimize your process.

  • You should take extra care of your electronic equipment – computers, printers, scanners, faxes etc. You should definitely pay special attention to them in case you often eat in front of the keyboard, while doing some extra work at the time when you should be resting. There are special wipes for electronics that will make this task easy like a walk in the part. Get some of those at your local supermarket.

  • Home Office CleaningIf paper-clutter is a problem, general desk clutter is even a bigger one. The artistic chaos is a good thing, but you should contain it to a reasonable limit. So, once a week take ten minutes to de-clutter your desk completely. Items that do not belong to your home office environment have no place there so just move them to the living space of your home, or throw them away.

  • The key to having the perfect home office is to assign space for everything – from the computer to the pile of sticky notes. Make a plan for dividing the space for everything you use while working and stick to that plan.

  • If you cannot afford professional cleaning services, vacuum your home office yourself every evening after finishing work. Twice a month take care of the windows and under no circumstances let rubbish pile up in the bin. In this way your office will become a more pleasant work place and you will make good impression on clients if you meet with them there.
