Worst Recipes for Burnt Pots & Dirty Dishes

July 27, 2015

A Step-by-Step Guide to Cleaning the Most Difficult Dishes

 Some recipes are much easier to clean than others. Dried-on foods, burnt meat, melted sugar and tomato bases can leave sticky messes and lingering residues that seem impossible to wash. Below, we highlight some of the most frustrating dishes to clean—and a DIY guide to tackling those messes.

Top 5 Worst Dishes to Clean

  • Cheesesteak: Often prepared in a frying pan, cheesesteak is double-difficult, combining burnt meat and melted cheese into one frustrating mess. Even the most vigorous scrubbing won’t do the trick—although you may burn off a few of those extra cheesesteak calories!
  • Lasagna: The classic hard-to-clean dish boasts both tomatoes and cheese to make cleaning extra-frustrating (especially those hard-to-reach corners of the casserole dish). Don’t be fooled by detergent commercials – a simple cycle through the dishwasher will not suffice!
  • Quiche: Pairing quickly drying egg with cheese and tomato causes quiche pans to be subject to dried-on food and pasty tomato residue—two dirty dish nightmares. You spend all morning preparing your quiche. You don’t want to spend all afternoon cleaning the pie pan!
  • Oatmeal: The starchiness of oatmeal, when dried, forms a glue-like paste that is no fun to clean. What do you do when your breakfast bowl looks like a botched papier-mâché project? Hint: It doesn’t require a chisel and hammer.
  • Coffee: Allowing coffee to sit in a mug untouched can leave stains that don’t come out in a regular wash. Not only do the stains linger, but so does the taste. Avoid drinking last week’s coffee by thoroughly cleaning your mugs.

How to Tackle the Toughest Dirty Dishes

For those daunting dishes, follow these quick and easy steps to have your pots and pans looking and smelling as clean as ever. That way, you can spend less time scrubbing and more time doing the things you love—like trying even more new recipes!

What You’ll Need:

  • Gloves
  • Vinegar
  • Dishwasher detergent
  • Dish soap
  • Towel or rag
  • Scrubbing brush or coarse sponge
  • Baking soda

Step by Step Guide:

  • 1) Safety first, put on some rubber gloves to keep your hands safe from grease and oil.
  • 2) Grab the dirty dish and fill it with hot water and a few drops of the detergent.
    • Pro tip: The hotter the water, the better. Hot water can cut through tough messes, just be careful not to make the water so hot that you’ll burn yourself! The only exception to the rule is dairy-related foods. Dairy tends to grow stickier with warm water—so cold water is best for cleaning cheesy dishes.
  • 3) Let the pan soak for anywhere between 20 minutes and two hours, depending on the dish’s dirtiness.
    • Pro tip: If you’re cleaning a regular (not a nonstick) stovetop pan or pot, put the pan over a burner set on high to speed up the degreasing process.
  • 4) After soaking, empty the water and pour some baking soda into the pan.
  • 5) Using a wet, course sponge or brush and a few drops of dish soap, scrub the pot—really put some elbow grease into it!
  • 6) Using hot water again, wash the soap off your pot.
  • 7) If there’s still some residue, repeat through step 6 until clean.
  • 8) If your pot appears burnt and steps 1 through 7 aren’t helping, try covering the surface area of the pot with baking soda and pouring vinegar into itwait while the chemical reaction occurs and wipe away with your soapy sponge.
  • 9) With freshly cleaned dishes in hand, use a dry rag to wipe away the remaining water before storage.
  • 10) Equipped with a clean pan, you’re ready for a new recipe!

Keeping your dishes clean, let alone your house, can be an exhausting feat. Sometimes a break would be nice. Luckily, Molly Maid’s cleaning service is here to give you a much-needed vacation.

15 Items Your Dishwasher Can Handle

July 16, 2015

Get the Most Out of Your Dishwasher

We get it. Just like everyone else, you’re crazy busy. You’re constantly getting emails and phone calls and don’t have time to clean everything in the house. Lucky for you, we’re here to tell you that your dishwasher is underutilized. Use your dishwasher to clean the following household items and reach your full dishwasher potential!

Toys, Potatoes, and More

Preparation: Be sure to empty your dishwasher of all dishes before adding non-kitchen items. Also, use discretion when adding detergent to your cycle, depending on the item.

  • 1) Toys: A fairly common alternative dish item, toys can be washed in a dishwasher with detergent if they are plastic—dolls and other soft toys are not recommended. But be careful! Absolutely no battery-powered items should be washed.
  • 2) Baseball caps: Hats can get sweaty and greasy, but washing machines can bend them out of shape. Instead, toss them on the top rack of your dishwasher with some soap for an easy clean!
  • 3) Rain boots: Rubber rain boots, paired with some baking soda, can come out looking squeaky clean after one wash.
  • 4) Garden tools: As long as they have plastic, ceramic, or rubber handles, garden tools can get a much-needed bath if put in your dishwasher with detergent.
  • 5) Flip-flops: After an entire summer’s use, flip-flops can get gunky, sticky and stinky. Hook them on a rack, add some detergent and have them smelling fresh in no time.
  • 6) Fan blades and covers: Dusting and cleaning fans can be exhausting to clean. If your fan is plastic, you’re in luck! One cycle through your dishwasher will save you some cleaning time.
  • 7) Kitchen sponges: Sponges are used to clean your dishes, so they should get a cleaning, too. Making sure to add detergent, place them on the top rack of your washer between scrubs.
  • 8) Hubcaps: Scrubbing your hubcaps down by hand only does so much. Placing them on the bottom portion of your dishwasher with some detergent will cut through grease and give them a thorough wash like never before.
  • 9) Toothbrushes: We use them to clean our mouths daily but rarely ever think to clean the toothbrushes themselves. Place your toothbrush in the silverware slot and run your dishwasher on a hot cycle without detergent to kill bacteria lingering on your brush.
  • 10) Sports equipment: Pads, like shin guards and knee pads, can reek of sweat. However, one soapy run in your dishwasher can make the car ride home from soccer practice a lot more bearable.
  • 11) Pet toys: Fido’s toys can also get grimy from all that chewing and slobbering. If they’re plastic or rubber, one run through the dishwasher with detergent should make your furry friend feel like he got a brand new bone.
  • 12) Microwave plates: The base plate in your microwave gets a lot of use. Next time you load your dishwasher, put the microwave plate on the bottom rack.
  • 13) Refrigerator shelves: Wiping down your refrigerator is a grueling and time consuming task. If your shelves are small enough to fit, consider putting them in the dishwasher to save yourself all that scrubbing.
  • 14) Potatoes: Don’t waste your time cleaning potatoes individually—place them on the top rack of your dishwasher for a quick soap-free clean! You’ll still have to cook them after their cycle.
  • 15) Cook salmon: We know this sounds crazy, but the Internet shows it has been done—there’s even a recipe for it: Wrap a fillet in aluminum foil, stick it on the top rack and run a soap-free cycle. Now you’re practically a five-star chef! Warning: You may have salmon to serve but your dishwasher will smell strongly of fish.

Even with these time-saving dishwasher hacks, there always seems to be more to clean around the house. Let Molly Maid cleaning services free up time for you! With Molly Maid, you can spend less time cleaning and more time doing the things you love. Contact your local Molly Maid today for an estimate.

How to Clean Your Crumby Little Toaster

July 8, 2015

Nearly every household in the US has a toaster but how many of them cleaned properly? Improperly cleaned toasters can very hazardous and can cause fires. In this blog, we will go over how to clean your crumby little toaster! More specifically, how to clean a toaster and how to clean a toaster oven.

07082015 Toaster How to Clean Your Crumby Little Toaster

Traditional Toasters

Unplug the Toaster 

This seems to be a no brainer but people forget this very important step often. Please don’t get burned or electrocuted. Turn off and unplug the toaster.

Clean the Inside

Insert large salt crystals through the toast slots. Cover toast slots with greaseproof paper and fasten with elastic or tape. Shake the toaster a few times to circulate the salt. The salt will clean the toaster by helping to force out crumbs as you shake. You can also clean the toast slots with an old toothbrush or using compressed air.

The crumb tray will either come off all the way or at least open up with a gentle pull. Dump the crumbs in the trash. Then wipe the tray clean by dipping your rag or sponge in vinegar or ammonia. Wring it out so it’s not dripping and scrub away. Use a toothbrush to get any hard to reach areas.

Clean the outside 

Be sure to wipe the sides, top and even bottom of the toaster clean. If your toaster is made of stainless steel, you may want to use vinegar or ammonia as opposed to soap to prevent streaks and get rid of any fingerprints. For really tough stuck-on stains, use a bit of baking soda to scrub off gently. Use a non-scratching sponge or wiping cloth on the toaster to prevent scratches.

Start by unplugging the toaster oven, and taking on the easy-to-dump debris first. Simply shake any crumbs or other food particles into the trash.

Toaster Ovens

Shake It Up

Unplug the toaster oven and shake any crumbs (or other food particles) into the trash.

Clean the inside

Remove all racks and pans. Spray them and the crumb tray with all-purpose cleaner. Use a non-abrasive scrubbing sponge to scrub to clean off debris.

Remove buildup

To tackle the oven itself, spray a scrubber sponge (or a regular sponge, if the interior is non-stick) with more cleaner. And avoid cleaning the heating elements inside.” Wipe the exterior as well, including the glass door.

Need more than just that toaster cleaned? No problem! Combine these tips with Molly Maid’s cleaning service to ensure a fresh smelling home. Request an estimate from your local Molly Maid!

About The Battier Take Charge Foundation

Shane and Heidi Battier believe in the merits and value of a college education as a vehicle to reach one’s life goals. As a high school teacher in an at-risk area of Memphis, Tennessee, Heidi came across a number of driven and talented students who possessed major league aspirations but fell short of their goals because of financial limitations. While there are many college grants and scholarships available for the focused and diligent high school student, unfortunately, there are also many students who fall through the ‘gaps’ of the financial aid program. If it were not for basketball, Shane himself did not know if he would have been able to freely chase his collegiate dreams. His parents did not have the means to fund a college education, and yet they would not have qualified for full financial aid. Shane made a promise to one day do his best to help kids who have promise and dedication, but fall through the gaps of financial aid package. http://takechargefoundation.org

Rocky 300x297 5 Ways to Clean up After Pet Mishaps

This little guy has a Molly Maid staffer testing these tips on a regular basis!

  1. Carpet Catastrophes: Potty accident in the house? Soak up as much as possible with a paper towel, then use undiluted soda water or dish soap to clean the area. Follow up with a multi-action enzyme formula to prevent future accidents and eliminate odor.
  1. Bad-Smelling Bed: Get rid of odors by sprinkling pet beds with baking soda. Let sit for 15 minutes to deodorize and vacuum.
  1. Soiled from Sickness: If your pet vomits on carpet, remove solid material with a paper towel. Coat the area with an equal mixture of baking soda and salt, then let dry. Finish by vacuuming and blotting with club soda.
  1. Muddy Mess: After a fun romp in the yard, pets often drag the outdoors, in. Keep a towel by the door to wipe paws immediately after being outside. If you notice that their paw pads are a little dry, dab with olive oil to soothe.
  1. Smelly Cat: Fake a bath by wiping your pet with baking soda to kill odor.

How to Wash a Smelly Dog Bed

June 29, 2015

Dog beds gives your dog a comfortable place to sleep and makes for a great alternative from sleeping in your bed! However, just like your own bed, dog beds have to be maintained. If not maintained properly, dog beds can create quite the odor! In this blog, we will cover how to wash a smelly dog bed. For best results, follow these simple steps monthly, or as needed.

06292015 Dog Bed 300x240 How to Wash a Smelly Dog Bed

Vacuuming your dog’s bed helps to remove dog hair, dirt, and other debris. (If any hairs have been missed, try rolling a lint roller over the bed.) It is very important to get as much dog hair as possible off the bed before washing. Dog hair sticks to wet fabric, so removing it prior to washing is highly recommended. For best results, try using a vacuum hose and an upholstery attachment. Although your focus should be mainly on the sleeping surface, don’t forget to remove dust and fur from the cover. Try vacuuming the bed between washings to keep it cleaner longer.

Most dog beds have removable covers. (This makes the cleaning process easier!) If the dog bed cover isn’t removable, check the washing instructions. If your dog bed cover is removable, you want to start by removing the cover completely. Load the fabric cover into the washing machine. Wash separately from other laundry. Wash bed covers on a large load setting with cold water. Make sure to use a pet-safe laundry detergent to not irritate your dogs skin. The fabric cover can be washed more frequently if needed.

Washing the dog bed may not effectively remove all the stains from the dog bed cover. If there are urine or poop stains, mud, or other deep stains, spray the bed with a stain remover before washing. You should also wash the dog bed in the washing machine. If the dog bed is too large, you can take it to the laundromat to be washed. Load the dog bed cover or the entire bed into a front-load washing machine and wash it in hot water to kill any insects and eggs that may be on the bed. Again,be sure to use a pet-safe laundry detergent to not irritate your dogs skin. If your dog bed is too large to be washed in a washing machine, you can hand wash it in a bathtub using hot water and pet-safe detergent.

You can dry your dog bed and cover in your dryer. Tumble dry for about 20 minutes and air fluff the dog bed with a pet-safe dryer sheet to reduce static. This helps separate any remaining pet fur from the bed and avoid shrinking. You can also let dog beds and removable covers air dry. Hang the bedding in a well-ventilated area to dry to prevent mildew and mold from growing.

Washing your smelly dog bed will only neutralize the pet odor if your home is just as clean. Combine it with Molly Maid’s cleaning service to ensure a fresh smelling home. Request an estimate from your local Molly Maid!

Dog Pee Pads: Do They Actually Work?

June 24, 2015

What could be more exciting than getting a new puppy?  Nothing! However, the reality of owning a new puppy usually sinks in quickly.  Puppies must be trained early to avoid forming bad habits.  You may consider Pee pad training if you have a small breed, physical disabilities or live in tall buildings.

Items Needed:

  • Pee Pads
  • Baby Gate
  • Treats
  • Leash
  • Non-carpeted area
06232015 Doggy vs. Hydrant 300x225 Dog Pee Pads: Do They Actually Work?

Set up a room for your dog, When you can’t watch your dog, or when you are away from the house, leave the dog in a small bathroom or laundry room with pads covering the entire floor. Also leave some water, toys and some bedding to lie on.

When you are home, take your dog to the pad regularly and wait for them to go. It’s recommended that you do this every 2-3 hours, as well as following sleep, play and eating periods.  Reward your dog generously whenever they successfully use the pee pad.  Keep your dog on a leash to prevent them from wandering away. Simply stand with your dog while on the pee pad, on-leash, and ignore them until they have successfully used the pee pad. If they haven’t used it after 5 minutes, then take your dog away from the spot.

Do this for 2-3 days, then take away one of the pads (leaving all the others). In two more days, take another pad away.  Two days later, remove another, and so on concentrating the area. The idea is to wean your dog off of each pad until there is only one left in the room.  If the dog pees outside of the remaining pads, put the rest back and start over.

No punishment.  This is a very important step! Do not yell at your dog if they have an accident. If your dog has an accident, simply take them quickly to their pad.  All yelling will do is teach your dog to poop and pee when you are not around (when it’s “safe”).

Maintain this routine for about 2 weeks.  If your dog is not having accidents at that point, begin to give them a little more freedom and continue to reward successful potty trips.  You could add a hallway or additional rooms. If your dog begins to soil again, go back to the steps mentioned above.

Still looking for help cleaning up doggy accidents (and maybe your own!), Molly Maid’s cleaning service can help to ensure  a fresh smelling home. Request an estimate from your local Molly Maid today!

How to Neutralize Pet Odor in Subflooring

Pet urine can be an eye-watering stench that’s nearly impossible to deodorize. Most pet owners are familiar with the various carpet cleaning tips and pricy products used to defunkify their musky carpets. But when pet stains happen, urine can soak through the carpet and into the subflooring, leaving a stain and a stench that can’t be lifted with carpet cleaner and elbow grease. If you have pet odor that will not go away despite your carpet cleaning efforts, follow these easy steps to seal your subflooring of odors.

It’s Not Just Your Carpet…
