Most people after paying a considerable sum for new wood flooring want to make sure they do not ruin the floor by cleaning it improperly. As a result, most floor installers and retail shops recommend using a particular product to clean the floor (we won’t mention any names here). However, these product(s) are somewhat expensive for something that mainly contains water and a bit of cleaning solution.

Chocolate contains Theobromine (a heart stimulant which can launch serious poisoning episodes) which can cause vomiting, diarrhea, extreme hyperactivity, seizures, heart arrhythmias, and even death. Dark chocolate has about 10x the amount of Theobromine than milk chocolate therefore has higher toxicity. For example it would take over 1lb of milk chocolate to poison a medium-sized pet, but can occur from eating only 2oz of dark chocolate. Also the high fat content in chocolate can cause Pancreatitis.
Here in San Diego house cleaning companies are frequently challenged by hard water stains on shower glass. If after taking a shower you do not immediately clean the glass by wiping it down or with a squeegee, rest assured, your glass will become spotted. It only takes a few months (in San Diego) of not properly drying the water from glass to permanently etch the glass surface. Once that occurs, removing the stained etched marks from the glass with a cleaning product will probably not be effective.

If you have tile on your floors, counters or bathroom you also have grout. Regardless of how clean you maintain your home most grout will become stained over time. Every time you mop a tile floor you are essentially pushing the dirt into the grout. You can keep your mop clean by rinsing it more often, but your grout is still going to accumulate dirt each time you mop.

We sometimes get asked if green cleaning sanitizes, but the answer to this question really depends on what type of green cleaners you’re using and what is meant by “sanitizing.” (it’s common to use the term disinfecting interchangeably with sanitizing, but this is not technically accurate).
So let’s first understand what is sanitizing. According to the CDC: Sanitizers are used to reduce germs from surfaces but not totally get rid of them. Sanitizers reduce the germs from surfaces to levels that are considered safe.
