Top 8 House Cleaning Tips for OC Moms
Below is a list of 8 house cleaning tips that are made just for OC Moms. Hats off to all those fun loving, beach going, hardworking moms who somehow keep everything together in our families.
1. Greet your visitors with a tidy welcome.
If you live in Orange County, you probably have friends from colder places that love to visit in the spring or Summer. It’s almost like clockwork the way they tend to migrate like birds to get as much sunlight as they can before returning home. You may not be able to keep out all the sand from kids toes from being sprinkled all over the floor, but I can guarantee you that overnight guests will appreciate a few small, touches like a well-made bed. Just a little bit can really go a long ways.

2. Iron Clothes.
Keeping up appearances is really difficult in Orange County. Imagine your child just graduating from UCI and is now on the job hunt. If your child wears a wrinkly shirt or dress to a job interview, it could keep them from receiving an offer. It’s important to know for example, when to use starch, and where to crease. It’s also important to teach kids to sort clothes by color and fabric is just as important. They need to understand how to decode clothing labels. All this will help them appear and feel good all the time.

3. Make everything smell good.
There is nothing that smells sweeter and more lovely than the ocean while walking along the beaches of Huntington, Newport, and Corona del Mar. Wouldn’t it be lovely to wear the beach smell everywhere? It’s really impossible, but there are some solutions to make your clothes feel and smell good all the time. You can spray a tiny bit of Febreze on everything, but another way to provide a lovely scent to your linens, towels, and clothing, is to fill paper teabags with dried lavender and tie or iron them shut. Then, place them into a small mesh bag and toss directly into the dryer with your next load.

4. Toothpaste isn’t just for cavities.
South Coast Plaza always has the shine and “new” smells and aromas. Everything is so white, bright, and seemingly perfect. After shopping at one of the greatest malls in the world, coming home can be a drag, unless you learn to keep it up. Make your home as white, and bright as your new freshly whitened teeth. Keep an all-white tube of toothpaste in your house for quick cleaning fixes. Toothepaste is a great spot cleaner for marks on the floor and walls, and for cleaning small pieces of jewelry and silver. Wrap a spare toothbrush around the toothpaste so you’ll always be ready for those hard-to-reach spots.
5. Save time with innovation
If you have kids, you can really have a blast exploring the Discovery Cube in Santa Ana. Many great ideas can come while you are watching your children try to grasp onto the basic principles of Physics. One Idea I came up with was: vacuuming my drapes. I slipped an old nylon stocking over the head of the attachment so curtains didn’t get sucked into the vacuum. Genius!

6. Dust the lightbulbs.
After an unbelievable adventure exploring and hiking along the Newport Back bay, it’s easy for us to remember how important the natural wonders of our world are, and how important they are to preserve. Light for instants. Take a look at your lightbulbs. Are they dirty? They’re often forgotten! They attract dust, and dusty bulbs are dimmer and less energy efficient. Clean bulbs with a soft cloth when they’re turned off and cool to the touch. Save energy, while brightening rooms. Win win!!
7. White Vinegar is your friend
Living by the beach, one knows and experiences how their livelihood directly effects the ocean and natural environment. You can sometimes smell or feel unnatural cleaning products being drained out into the Pacific Ocean. Best use a solution that is natural and will not have any negative effect on nature. Vinegar is the best product that is inexpensive, pure, and has many uses and does not scar the natural environment the way unnatural products do. This natural cleaning solution is great for a host of household chores, mix it with a little baking soda to lift tough stains, like red wine, or use it alone to clean the refrigerator, freshen windows, and to get marker stains off my kids’ hands.
8. Treat your laundry with care
Many parents in OC have kids, and sometimes those highschool brats actually have their own cellphones. They are still learning to take care of these very important items, and nothing is worse than having a cellphone obliterated in the wash. Turn pocketed pants and shorts inside out to avoid washing unwanted objects, like receipts, tissues, and pens. But if you get stuck picking white paper off dark clothes, use a lint roller. Another laundry lesson worth passing down: Never wring out sweaters and woolens after a wash. We suggest playing them on a flat towel and then rolling the towel up to absorb water before laying them flat to dry
