Kid Capable Cleaning Tips from The Maids

The kids are home, the school countdown has begun for some parents and summer is a time where the house continuously has that "lived in" feel. If you want some fun tips to get your kids cleaning around the house then The Maids has some good ideas for you!

1. Fill a squirt gun from a solution of a gallon of water and a drop of dish soap. Let kids squirt windows and mirrors and wipe dry with paper towels. Leaves glass clean and streak free!

2. Make cleaning a game; give young kids grill tongs and challenge them to pick up toys and put them in a toy box or bin only using the utensils. Keep score and see who wins!

3. Cover kids’ hands and arms with dad’s old athletic socks then squirt the socks until lightly damp with a safe solution of vinegar and water. Send them off to dust around the house.

4. Got a pile of blocks or action figures strewn on the floor? Scoop up toys in a few swoops using a kid-sized leaf rake to form a pile for easy pick-up.

5. Don’t forget the fun music to help your kids get a groove on as they boogie around the house cleaning.
