JoMax

We are finally seeing a break in the rain in San Antonio and so I thought I would share with you a few ways to clean up around the house. All are easy and inexpensive and can be done in a few hours of your day!

If you want to clean the siding on your house use JoMax and a pump up sprayer. The formula is 1 pt of JoMax, to 3 pts of bleach put in a pump up sprayer filled with water. Spray down the siding and let it work then rinse with clear water. If mold and mildew are the problem, use 30 Second Outdoor Cleaner and let it work and rinse with water. If mold and mildew are a continuing problem on your siding, after cleaning apply Zep Clear Shell which is a mold inhibitor and keep mold away for 18 months.

To clean your windows use Renz EZ attached to your garden hose. Renz EZ will clean your windows through the screens, and not leave any spots. The Renz EZ applicator and Renz EZ soap is all you need to clean your windows, even the ones on the second story are reachable with the applicator.

To clean the coils in the AC unit use a product called K.O. Dirt Blaster. Originally made for AC window units this product will clean the dust and grime that builds up on the coils and causes your AC to work harder and cool less efficiently. Spray the K.O. Dirt Blaster on the coils and watch as the dust melts down. We used it in the store on our Coke Machine that was not cooling and saved our machine from the junk pile.

Kitchen cabinets develop oil build up right where you grab to open them and will make the cabinets look dark and dirty. Clean your wood stained cabinets with Fine Wood Cleaner . Fine Wood Cleaner will dissolve waxes; remove oils, smoke and grime that will soften your wood cabinets. If your cabinets are not dirty just look dull, use the Feed and Wax and bring back the glow in your wood cabinets. If your cabinets are a painted finish, use a product from Granite Gold called All Surface Cleaner. Granite Gold All Surface Cleaner can be used on stainless steel, mirrors and ceramic tile. Of course they make a granite and marble cleaner, sealer and polish that will make taking care of your counter top easy and quick.

Clean your toilet, with Delete Germ and a Flexi Scour.Flexi Scour is a screen that in infused with pumice that is flexible and can clean all underneath the curved rim of your toilet. Delete Germ originally used in hospitals because it is a disinfectant will clean out the hard water build up in the rim of the toilet so that your toilet will flush better. Install a Frugal Flush Flapper (it’s adjustable) in the tank and make your flapper flush efficiently by dropping at the exact time the water leaves the bowl, not any sooner so that you flush twice and not any later so that you are wasting water.

Last but now least, if you have developed green mildew on the porch and sidewalk the 30 Second Outdoor Cleaner is the product that will clean it up. Simply use the concentrated 30 Second Outdoor Cleaner in a pump up sprayer, no power washer needed and rinse with clear water.

I had a great tip that came in to the store from my Bible Study leader, Sarah Jane Jones. A customer came in and was talking to me about how difficult it was to move her large Keurig coffee maker across her counter top when she needs to fill with water. Sarah Jane said that she had the same problem and she put those felt sliders that usually go on the bottom of chairs to the bottom of the Keurig and now it slides easily across the counter. Wow!! Why didn’t I think of that? So if moving your appliances on the counter top is difficult for you, just apply the felt sliders to everything from the coffee maker, toaster, your blender and make everything move easy.

Have a Great Father’s Day!!
