Grandma’s Cleaning Tips

We have the privilege of living in a technological time, without even realizing it. Machines control our lives. The more time passes, the less we rely on ourselves. Can you tell me when was the last time you washed your socks? Do you even know how to do it? My point exactly. Let me put you in a hypothetic situation. For a month you have to manage a household without any of the modern gadgets. This means no dishwasher, vacuum cleaner, washing machine and hold on – no hot water and cleaning agents.

 How Did Your Grandmother Cleaned The House?

This situation will put you in your grandmother’s shoes or maybe her mother’s. Are you up for the task? Do you know where to start from? Do you know what to use in order to remove a stain from the carpet? Have you ever heard of homemade soap? Do you know how to make it? Stop dialing your granny, she may think you’re crazy for asking her such things. I have been traveling around the world, heard and saw a lot of things, including countries that have never heard of cleaning services.

Don’t pretend you haven’t called a cleaning technician, everyone I know has. When time isn’t enough and I have to cook, take the trash out, wash the dishes and do the laundry, cleaning is just too much. I don’t know how did women cope with everything. I surely need professional help, how come they didn’t. One holiday I decided to talk with my beloved granny about the past. She was so exited and happy and we talked all night. I learned some very interesting things.

For example, baking soda can remove lots of stains from your carpet or sofa. Lemon juice mixed with water is also a great cleaning solution, plus it freshens the air. Red wine can be removed with sparkling water and salt can be used to remove greasy stains. Vinegar handles with mold. Silver is best cleaned when bathed in a solution containing equal parts baking soda and vinegar. Grannie also told me everyone at home used to have daily chores.

Although there was a lot of work all the time and it was hard, they were happy. My mother told me that it didn’t bother her to wash the dishes when she was little. The more I think about it the more convinced I get that people in the past were more glad with their life. The families were more united precisely because the did things together. Unfortunately this time is gone and our busy lives just don’t allow us to do all the housework alone. Good thing there are cleaning companies to aid us for carpet cleaning Chiswick W4 , London.
