Cleaning Tips for First-Time Dads

Move over, moms. You're not the only ones taking time off work to take care of a new baby. According to Oxygen/Markle Pulse, 70 percent of women and 63 percent of men agree that it is important for a father to take parental leave for at least two weeks following the birth of a child. 

But Dads, don't make the mistake of thinking this time off is a vacation. Mom and baby will soon make you think otherwise. If you¡¦re not a pro diaper changer, relax, you soon will be. And if you¡¦re not great at housework, take heart, practice makes perfect and the following tips will get you on your way. 

  • Vacuum the house for your wife to give her back a break. Remember to vacuum your way out of a room by starting in the far corner and working toward the door.
  • Keep your little one from inhaling cleaning fumes. When cleaning, spray the product directly onto a cloth, then wipe the surface.
  • Soap scum is the ultimate workout! Work on those bulging biceps while scrubbing the tub clean. Use a Dobie scrubber for soap scum and a grout brush to remove grime from the tile. To clean the shower curtain, just stick it in the washer and lay flat to dry.
  • Use your brute strength and surprise your wife by moving appliances like stoves and refrigerators and cleaning behind them.
  • Get your floors so clean you won¡¦t mind if your baby eats off them! Scrub them by hand using mild disinfectant and warm water.
  • Enlist other children¡¦s help with household chores by making them fun. Pretend the toy box is a basketball net and the toys are basketballs. Have your child try to score points by getting the toys in the toy box.
  • For a special finishing touch that is sure to make your wife smile, use a drop of baby oil on stainless steel sinks to make them sparkle. 

So while the baby is content and mom is resting, tackle the housework. Your effort will be rewarded¡Xin about six weeks!

Specialist Home Cleansing - The Dirty Little Trick

I'm composing this post due to the fact that I'm tired of all the books being offered that inform individuals how simple it is to begin their own cleansing organization. I'm not presuming that all their details are bad, however, let's be sincere about how "simple" it truly is. There's an unclean little secret hanging over the cleansing trade that no one speaks about, however every expert cleaner face. And regrettably, if you purchase among the books on how to begin your own cleansing organization, they will not inform you about this problem and most likely do not even understand it exists. Why do not they understand it exists? Since the book was more than most likely composed by an organization expert and not a cleansing specialist. To share the obligation, I'll be sincere and expose that even the expert cleaners do not speak about this concern. And I can't find out why; are they in rejection, do they choose to simply overlook it or are they f
