Kitchen counters come in such a huge assortment now, you might find that what works to clean one type doesn't work as well on others. Experienced maid services know how to tackle every type of counter, and now you can have a better idea of how to keep your counters clean, too!

The key is to clean based on the type of counter you have. Here, then, is a type-by-type description of how to clean your counters:

There are some things in your home that are just hard to use for decorating. They're not colorful, they clash with your décor, they're a weird shape, they don't look natural—some of those items should be packed up and donated or sold, but some of them you have to have for your home office, kitchen, or house cleaning.

Jen at I Heart Organizing ran into exactly this conundrum: a plain gray file cabinet she needed in her office but definitely didn't look interesting compared to the rest of the room. Her trick is one you can use for a lot of different items, and the result is fantastic!

If you've got carpeting, it probably takes up most of the floor in your house. You walk on it everyday, your kids play on it, your dog sprawls all over it—it's a big part of your daily life, and one you might not think about too often.

Unfortunately, carpets love to hold onto dirt, and over time it can wear the fibers down, making the carpet look worn and promoting bacteria and smells. Yikes! There's good news, though: keeping the carpet clean doesn't have to be a horrible house cleaning chore if you know how to do it right.

If you’re not the type to spend hours in the furniture store or you’re just watching a tight budget, there are a few things you can do right now to make your house more organized and designed that will cost you very little money and only a little bit of time!

Dusting seems like a straightforward task: take cloth, wipe, remove dust. Unfortunately, like most things, it’s not as simple as you think to do it well. After all, the last thing you want is to spread more dust around the house while you clean.

There’s an easy step-by-step way to clean up the dust in your house for good and turn you into a housekeeping ace. 

Cleaning the baseboards isn’t a housekeeping task you probably address often, but over time they start to collect dust and looking dingy. Sometimes they just need a good cleaning, and it might not be as hard as you think. 

Whether you clean your baseboards or cleaning services do, there’s a great trick for keeping them looking fantastic between cleanings! 

You probably have a lot of closets in your house, and chances are at least one of them frequently misses the house cleaning circuit. There’s no need to hide that closet anymore—jump right in and get it done by defining its purpose!

Just like maid service teams come with specific tasks to keep them focused, giving your closet a “task” or purpose will help keep you focused and keep it organized for a long time. 

While there are those who actually look forward to washing clothes, most people fall in the neutral category, while almost as many fall in the can’t-stand-laundry group. How can you make laundry an easier part of your house cleaning and less of a hassle if you just don’t like laundry?

The problem with laundry is that it takes quite a bit of time to complete, from the time you sort the clothes until the moment you put them away in a drawer or closet, you do a lot of work! Streamlining that process will make it easier to get your laundry done with no problem. 

Maybe you make your bed every day as part of your normal housekeeping, change your linens every week, and flip your mattress a couple of times a year—but how often do you clean the mattress itself? Mattresses are made of cloth and as such, absorb moisture. They also attract dust and the accompanying dust mites, something you definitely don’t want to be sleeping with!

Running a vacuum over your mattress every now and then might make you feel better about the state of your mattress, but a real cleaning will give you a level of freshness above and beyond the vacuum, and it’s thankfully an easy process.

Whether you are house cleaning on an ordinary day or setting up a holiday party, there is a decorating staple you might not have or may not have thought much about. It is a clean canvas, ready for bursts of bright colors, soft murmurs of pastels, or deep, elegant tones.

It will pull a room together in moments, and with a little help, will take a room from bland to beautiful in less than an hour, sometimes as little as 15 minutes. It’s fresh, clean, crisp, and yet works with the richest, most vibrant décor. What item could possibly do all of that? Read on to find out!
