Getting Christmas Tree Sap Off Your Floors and Vehicle

remove tree sap from your vehicle

The smell of pine in the air, the dusting of snow on the ground and the joy in your children’s voices as you choose a Christmas tree.

These are some of the best parts of the holiday season.

While there are few things more beautiful than a live Christmas tree decorated and displayed in your front window during December, there is nothing more frustrating than getting tree sap on your vehicle and floors.

Although it seems easy enough to wipe away when wet, tree sap leaves a sticky reside and hardens quickly into a gooey and difficult-to-remove mess.

Not only can tree sap be a pain to get off your hardwood floors, it can also cause damage the paint on your vehicle.

There are many families that no longer get a live Christmas tree just for this reason. Instead of opting for an artificial tree and lighting pine scented candles around your home around your home, enjoy the fragrant scent and unique beauty of a live tree without worrying about the sticky sap.

Deep Cleaning Your Bathroom

Deep Cleaning Your Bathroom with help from Eraser Sponges

A new year means a new start at making this year better than last year.

One of the best things you can do for yourself is give yourself a clean house.

It won’t happen overnight but you can start with one room at a time. First let’s start with the bathroom.

Fully Cleaning the Shower

Take the shower head off the wall and place in a bag with white vinegar.

  • Tie up the bag and let set overnight.

Take down your shower curtains and wash them in your washer with a few towels.

  • The towels will act as micro scrubbers.

Then use your eraser sponges to clean all the nooks and crannies of your shower, including doors and tiles.

Use an Eraser Sponge on the Walls

Use the Eraser Sponge to remove all mildew spots from tiles and grout.

If you come across very stubborn spots use a tooth brush with bleach to get it all clean.

Scrub Down the Toilet with Sponge Eraser

Put a cup of baking soda into the bowl and let sit for a few minutes then flush.

  • All spots should be gone, if not use a piece of an eraser sponge to get stuck on spots.
  • Then you can continue to use other parts of the eraser sponge underneath the toilet seat and on the outside of the toilet.

Now you need to clean that toilet brush- using the toilet seat to hold it between the bowl and the seat, pour bleach on top of it. Then clean out the brush holder by letting it soak in soapy water.

Get spots and grime off of the Sink

  • Then use eraser sponges to clean the faucet and vanity top.

To get into the tiny cracks under the faucet handles use dental floss to pull out all grime.

Hand Towels

Use the sanitizing setting on your washer to clean them. Or even better just replace them every 3- 4 days.

Tackling one room at a time will help you start to see a visible difference in your home.


Eraser Mops: Making Floor Cleaning Easier!

But what you didn’t know is that there are also Eraser Mops.

These are made of the same material as the Eraser Sponges, but they are actually pads that fit on your Doodlebug cleaning system.

No more getting on your hands and knees to scrub!

This product allows you to stand and clean your floors with the same strength as the Erasers.

You only need to use water in order to activate the cleaning power of your Eraser Mop.

Many of the toughest stains that we need to tackle are on the floor- whether it’s on tile, hardwood, or concrete.

How often do you spill something on the floor, only to find out later that you only got part of it up with your paper towels?

  • By then it is surely sticky and a nuisance.

Use your dual-layered Eraser Mop to clean it all up for good!

This product is also great for the elderly who are living in their own.

Instead of having to get down to clean the floor, they can just use the convenient handle.

This will allow them to get into hard to reach places without having to strain themselves unnecessarily.
