Try Something New
Last night I decided to try something out of my comfort zone,(literally, it was 114 degrees outside) by attending the Brad Paisley Weekend Warrior Word Tour. I invited myself along and am glad I did, not only did I get to spend time with my daughters, but it was a nice re-introduction to country music. There was a lot of cowboy boots and denim, it made me appreciate the loyalty of country fans to stand out in the intense heat to enjoy the music.
It's nice to do something unexpected, you don't have to do something quite so drastic, just something different so you don't suffer from the summer blues. And although Brad Paisley joked about our "dry heat", until you've experienced the crushing humidity along with the heat that some places have, you have no idea of the meaning of dry heat.

How about you? It's kind of pointless to complain about the weather here, however the whole world seems pretty obsessed by it and the weather people are downright giddy about it. The seats and steering wheel in the car need oven mitts to touch, the pavement feels like it's melting your shoes. But, at least it's a dry heat!!

Forget about the heat and have a wild and wacky weekend
Many pet owners will be taking their pets to work with them tomorrow, as a way of honoring homeless pets and the shelters who are hoping for people to come in and adopt a new family member. We are lucky to share our lives with two big dogs and three lazy cats who can all cause a mess every so often. There are many common household cleaning products that can be harmful to our pets, as well as, young children and adults. Here are a few green cleaning tips to help keep you and your pets safe:
Vinegar can be used for removing dirt and stains on carpeting and is a good all natural cleaner, you can mix it with a little salt or cornstarch for a little scrubbing power, if needed. Be sure to check with the carpet manufacturer or test on a small surface to ensure colorfastness and resiliency. Vinegar is also a great all-purpose cleaner, combine 1/2 cup of white vinegar to a gallon of water and pour into a clean spray bottle for an inexpensive way to cut through most dog related messes. You can also use it to clean your dog's plastic and rubber toys, brushes and combs.
Baking soda is a great inexpensive substitute for scouring cleansers, and it can deodorize as it cleans. Tubs, sinks and floors will shine after using it and you can even sprinkle a little on carpets and upholstery to remove pet odors. It also helps cut cat box odors by sprinkling a little in the bottom of the box before you put cat litter in it.
Check the Ingredients
Cleaning products that contain such ingredients as: bleach, chlorine, ammonia, gycol etheres or formaldehyde (Just to name a few.)put pets, children and adults at risk for liver or kidney damage, anemia and can be carcinogenic. These can be found in floor cleaners, bathroom cleaners, all purpose cleaners, drain openers, glass cleaners, laundry detergent, as well as, a few dog shampoos.
There are many pet safe products out there, if you do decide to use toxic cleaners, be sure to put them away, preferably in a high spot away from nosy kids and pets. Use them only when your pets and kids are not in the same room and make sure there is not any residue left behind.
If you are looking for a unique janitorial service that isn't afraid of a little dog hair, that offers a safer alternative to toxic cleaning, and is good for you, your employees, your pets, and the planet, give us a try.
What better way to have some cool fun on the first day of summer then to see a new movie? Transformers: The Last Knight is out in theaters today. Check out and see if you can spot the scenes that were filmed right here in the Phoenix area.
Transform Your Powerful Office Image
It doesn't have to be all fun and games, but at least show evidence that it is acceptable to have fun. If your office is cold and lacking any personality, it can show lack of energy and a passion for what you do. Sometimes a few of your favorite things can spark a great idea. Let people leave your office with a positive experience,
Office environments that have a good vibe can boast a highly productive, and well functioning work place that is inspiring for both your employees and your clients. Having a space where fellow employees and management can have an impromptu meeting of the minds, can help create a happy environment. People are more wiling to share ideas and ask for thoughts if your office has an interactive vibe.
Don't let your office be the one that offers a stuffy, uncomfortable work environment that we have all encountered. Differentiate yourself from others. Start the summer by contacting us for a free assessment of your cleaning needs, we would love to keep the clean, cool vibes going.
(Going to the movies is one of our favorite things to do, but we are not paid by anyone for mentioning them in our blogs.)
During the lazy days of summer the one thing probably don't feel like celebrating is the Summer Solstice, unless you like really long days that have 14 hours and 22 minutes of daylight to be exact. It's too bad that the longest day of the year is also one of the hottest.
Cool Update to recent blog about using coconut oil for cleaning
Last weekend I decided to try cleaning our strappy, metal chaise lounges that we have had for over six years. They sit outside year round and I really didn't expect them to last this long. The plastic straps were pretty dirty and had rust stains on them, so I sprayed off what I could and used a mixture of coconut oil and baking soda on them and let it sit for about an hour. I sprayed them off again and scrubbed a little bit with a washcloth. I am happy to report that they look and feel so much better, and I am not embarrassed to have people sit on them. Has anyone else found something unusual to clean with coconut oil?
On a day like today, there is no better time to conserve your energy. Keep cool and calm by contacting us for a free specific cleaning assessment to meet all of your cleaning needs and your budget.
With today's excessive heat warning in effect, this won't be hard to do. Just walking from your car to the office will have you glistening and shining in a short amount of time.
Just remember, New Monday - New Week - New Goals.
Here is a good tip to make your windows and mirrors shine without having to run to the store if you run out of your favorite cleaner. You can use simple ingredients that you should have on hand. Just mix them up and you will have a environmentally friendly glass cleaner that is inexpensive to make and will make your glass shine.
DIY Glass Cleaner
2 cups water
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol (70% concentrate)
Combine ingredients and store in a spray bottle. Spray on paper towel or clean, soft cloth and clean away. DO NOT try to clean windows on a hot and sunny day like today, the solution will dry to quickly and it will leave streaks.
If your office isn't shining when you walk in it might be time to re- think your clean. We have a lot to offer in keeping your office cool and green - give us a try!
Refrigerator Etiquette at Work
Is this saying posted on the refrigerator in the break room at your place of work. If so, and people are still leaving their abandoned, unmarked containers full of rotting food for someone else to clean up, have your cleaning service do the dirty work.
Give your refrigerator a break, it is the hardest working appliance in the kitchen and it deserves to be clean and fresh. In a perfect world they would bring, eat and take home their containers all in the same day.
The Last Chance Shelf
Designate an area or shelf and put a remove by date on it, and throw it away if it's not removed by then. They were warned so if they want to keep grand-ma's favorite container, they will take it home.
Be sure to check the expiration date on coffee creamer or milk, they can get kind of chunky if left too long. And seriously, who is going to use all of those catsup and taco sauce packets? Throw them out. And, don't forget the box of baking soda to help with the mixture of all those great smelling lunches mixing together and making the fridge smell a little funky.
Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there. Enjoy your day and try to stay "Cool".
Is that smell coming from the break room?
If the trash is emptied on a daily basis and the lunchroom still smells, maybe it's your garbage disposal. This can be one of those forgotten things that most people don't think about at work or that someone else will take care of it. There is a simple cure for smelly garbage disposals. You can use lemons or any kind of citrus fruit as a natural way to deodorize your garbage disposal. The acid in the fruit will also help disinfect the blades and walls. You can use the fruit peels or the whole fruit if you want, mixing it with a cup of ice is also effective and good for the blades as it helps loosen stuck on debris.
Ask your cleaning service if they could add this to your checklist if this is a regular problem in your office kitchen.
Have a terrific Thursday!
