Dads – Here’s How to Tackle 3 of the Most Frustrating Cleaning Jobs


When you run a busy family household it seems that the jobs are never done. As soon as you’ve taken care of something which has broken, there’s a cleanup, after you’ve finished cleaning someone has had a bump/fall – and so it goes on!

Most tired parents just move from one job to another, doing things as best they can but not doing them efficiently. This article will give you 3 of the most common stains that occur in your house and the best way to clean them.

Red Wine

If you do not have time to pre-treat the stain, then wait for it to dry.

Once it is dry you will want to soak up the excess liquid with a paper towel or cloth. You will then want to blot the area with a clean cloth and some plain water.

The water will help to draw out the excess wine from the carpet fibers. Once you are satisfied with the amount of moisture that has been extracted from the area, you will want to blot the area with a paper towel. The paper towel will help to remove any moisture that may have been left behind.

You will now want to use some carpet cleaning solution on a clean cloth. You will want to work the solution into the carpet area. You will want to rub it in carefully, but yet in a circular motion. Make sure that you do this over the entire area of the carpet. You will want to make sure that you do this until the area is no longer damp looking. Once you are satisfied with the way that the carpet looks, you will want to allow it to dry before walking on it.

Pet Urine

To remove the stain and odor, you should first wipe up as much of the liquid as possible. After that, you can clean it with detergent and water. Using a towel or a rag, blot out as much of the liquid as possible.

Next, use a wet vac to remove the water. You can then use a pet stain and odor remover to eliminate the odor and to disinfect your floor.

If you use an enzyme-based cleaner it will break down the bacteria and remove the underlying cause rather than masking the smell.

Getting rid of the odor is the most important step. If you’re not sure whether your pet will return to the spot, you can also use a pet repellent to discourage them from going to that area. A pet deterrent is a product that creates an unpleasant smell, noise, or taste. It will deter your pet from returning to the spot they had an accident in. They will want to avoid the area again.

Marks and Scuffs on Walls

If you’re tackling a lot of marks or a particularly tough stain, it’s best to use a product specially designed to tackle marks on walls, such as Mr Muscle Stain & Mould Remover.

To tackle marks or stains, put a reasonable amount of the product on to a cloth or sponge and work it into the affected area. Leave it to sit for around five minutes, but do not leave it for longer than recommended on the product as this could damage the paintwork.

Use a soft cloth to wipe away the product and dirt. If you’re not satisfied with the result, you can repeat this process, but avoid putting too much product on, as this could damage the paintwork.

For a big spring clean, pour a small amount of the product into a bucket of water and use a sponge to clean the walls, as this prevents too much of the product coming into contact with the paintwork.

After you’ve cleaned the area, dry it with a cloth to prevent a patchy finish.

The amount of time you should wait before you repaint a wall depends on the material of the wall. For a painted wall, it’s best to wait at least a week before you repaint. This will ensure that the paint has dried properly and that the wall is completely clean.

It’s best to wait until the wall is completely dry before you repaint it, as it will make the job easier and ensure a smoother finish.

To repaint, it’s a good idea to use the same brand of paint that was originally used. This will ensure a smooth finish and will mean that you don’t need to do much preparation before you paint. For a professional finish, you can use a paint-roller to paint the wall, but if you’re doing a smaller job, a paintbrush will do the trick.

If you’re not satisfied with the appearance of the wall once you’ve repainted it, wait until it’s completely dry, then sand the surface lightly with a fine-grained sandpaper to smooth it out.
