Insider Tips From AEC Experts!

Meet Alina, one of our veteran housekeepers who has worked in the Chicago area for more than 10 years with a reputation that definitely precedes her. At our request, Alina is sharing some of her top-secret cleaning tips!

1. To keep your toilet bowl fresh and white, use bubbling denture cleaning tablets.

2. Cheesecloth (yes!) will keep your vacuum working for many years to come. Place a thin piece of the material (available at any fabric store) at the top of the vacuum hose before inserting the duster tip to keep small fragments from antiques or old books from getting stuck in the vacuum rings.

3. If you need to remove wax from your tablecloth after a dinner party, place the cloth in the freezer overnight. The next day, peel the remaining wax off. If there is remaining residue, cover with a piece of paper cut from a grocery bag and use a heated iron to lift any stains.

4. The all purpose cleaner Simple Green is great at removing lipstick stains from fine linens.

5. Eliminate all possibility of dust mites or bacteria from your mattress by using a semi-pro Rowenta Steamer Iron on the bare mattress every three months.

Thanks to Alina for sharing some of her favorite tips & tricks that make her the top-notch housekeeper that she is!
