How to Remove Christmas Tree Sap This Holiday Season

How to Eliminate Christmas Tree Sap This Holiday Season

We love our Christmas trees. The twinkling lights, the festive decorations, the presents waiting to be unwrapped … but then there’s the sap. Cleaning sticky pine sap residue off the floor could even turn Santa Claus into the Grinch. There is hope, however: with the right products and techniques you can eliminate Christmas tree sap this holiday season.

Here are a few tips for removing Christmas tree sap and preventing sticky, gooey buildup on your floors:

Ice it

Placing ice cubes over puddles of sap for 10 to 15 minutes will cause the sap to harden. Once it does, it will be much easier to scrape off with a plastic knife, a razor or even your fingernail. Just be careful to position the tool nearly parallel to the floor so you don’t scrape or scratch the wood or tile. Once the sap is gone, use a hardwood floor cleaner.

Oil soap

Non-diluted oil soap, like Murphy’s, is great for cleaning pine sap off hardwood floors. Apply it with a mop or pour it directly on your floor, then let it sit for 15 minutes. The oil-based soap will soften the sap, making it easier to scrub off with a brush and then rinse. If you don’t have oil soap, vegetable shortening or rubbing alcohol can work, too.

Don’t forget, the right products can go a long way toward protecting your floors this holiday season. SpongeOutlet’s amazing Eraser Sponge is ideal for spot cleaning, and our Melamine Floor Pads will get your whole floor nice and clean after the holiday season ends and you take down your tree. Happy Holidays!

How to Deeply Clean Your Dishwasher

How to Deeply Clean Your Dishwasher

Your dishwasher is arguably the hardest-working appliance in your kitchen, cleaning dirty dishes every single day. However, if you don’t give it a thorough cleaning every now and then, it won’t work properly. Dirt, old food and soap scum can clog it and affect its performance. What’s more, a dirty dishwasher can get pretty stinky, and is much less efficient.

Clean the door

First, clean the outside to remove dirt and fingerprints. An eraser sponge dipped in sudsy water is great for this task. Make sure you also clean the inside of the door, too, using a small toothbrush to get into the grooves. Once it’s clean, use a soft cloth to wipe it dry. You can also use the toothbrush to clean things like silverware racks inside the dishwasher.

Clean out the drain

Pull out your dishwasher’s bottom rack, and make sure there’s no debris that can clog the drain, damage the pump, or scratch your dishes.

Run two to three cleaning cycles

Start by putting a cup of plain white vinegar in the top of your dishwasher, and then run a cycle. The vinegar will wash away grime, remove odors, and sanitize. Then, sprinkle baking soda around the bottom of the appliance and run a short cycle using the hottest possible water, to further deodorize and remove stains. If you have problems with mold or mildew, try running another cycle with bleach.

With the use of the right products, your dishwasher will be sparkling clean in no time. SpongeOutlet sells top cleaning brands for less, helping you get the job done at a fraction of the cost. Browse our inventory of eraser sponges today!

How an Eraser Sponge Can Help Clean Up After Your Pet

How an Eraser Sponge Can Clean Up After Your Pet

Since we have been on the cleaning kick lately, we thought we would address cleaning up after your pet, especially with winter quickly approaching. We all love our pets and we want them to have fun, but sometimes that means having a mess to clean up on a daily basis.

Our pets daily activities often cause scuffs on the floors and marks on the walls, cabinets and doors. Dogs and cats also tend to make a mess around their food and water bowls and there are occasional accidents when we have been at work too long, or a misstep with the litter box that can leave a mess on the floor.

The eraser sponge is the perfect cleaning tool for homes with pets.

Instead of filling a bucket with water and soap and wetting a mop to wipe up the floors, an eraser sponge makes it easy to clean up spills, scuffs and dirty paw prints in a snap. An eraser sponge is simple enough for your children to use as well if you need the extra help! It’s much simpler and cheaper to teach your little ones how to help you tidy up after pets by using the eraser sponge.

Keep your eraser sponges handy and have your children watch you clean up the scuffs and marks left by your pets and encourage them to join you. After going through the simple process a few times, your kids will automatically reach for the eraser sponge when your dog comes in from outside with muddy paws.

An eraser sponge is your all-purpose cleaning tool for homes with pets. You will no longer need to struggle with the mess of a mop. Make the clean-up process easier and quicker so you can spend more time with your pets and children! For more essential cleaning supplies, visit Spongeoutlet today!

How to Have Spotless Walls

Perhaps you’ve been putting off cleaning your walls all summer and now you are shocked to see what wound up on them. Don’t put this task off any longer!  To help you out, we have put together a simple step by step instruction of how to remove any sort of mess on your walls to make sure they are looking great!

Step one: Eliminate any cobwebs

This is the part of cleaning we don’t like to think about since cobwebs tend to mean spiders. However, getting rid of huge clumps of dust, dirt or lint will make it easier for you to get at the stickier mess. To do this, use a cloth or a vacuum, depending on where the location is.

Step two: Eliminate any crayon marks

If you have children, crayons can go missing or get used for the wrong purposes. Check to see if you see crayon marks on any of your walls. If you do, make sure there are no clumps of crayon on the wall. Smearing large chunks can make your mess even bigger! Once the chunks are off, gently rub the area with an eraser sponge and the crayon will lift right up. Use a towel to spot dry, if need be.

Step three: Eliminate beverage stains

We have all opened a bottle of soda, only to have it fizz up to the ceiling and walls and what a mess it makes! To remove the stains, if you have a magic eraser, try using that first. It will save a lot of time and scrubbing. If you do don’t have one, then a mild detergent will be gentle enough to be used on stained walls.

You will find that after all of this hard work, your walls will look like new! If we have inspired to clean, visit our cleaning product supplies online and be sure to give us a call at 877-776-6430 with any questions you have!

Clean These Children’s Items With Our Eraser Sponge

Do you have children? If you do, chances are, they have accumulated many toys and belongings over the past few years. It can often be a tough chore to keep their belongings clean, but with an eraser sponge, it should be a little easier.

Here are five things that can be cleaned with everyone’s favorite products!

Action Figures and Dolls

Since the faces of the dolls are a soft vinyl, they can come clean pretty easily by just gently wiping them down so you don’t scratch the surface!

Grimy Sneakers

Children are notorious for running in the mud and splashing in every puddle they come across – especially now that they are headed back to school! Instead of buying new sneaks, just clean your child’s existing sneakers and they will think they are as good as new! To clean them, you won’t need much water with the eraser sponge, so you can put them on your child and leave right away instead of waiting for them to dry.

Lunchboxes

Now that school is starting again, you might not need to clean your child’s lunchbox right away since it’s probably new, but soon enough it will need a good cleaning. When you need to, wipe down the lunchbox with an eraser sponge to eliminate any build up.

Gaming Systems

If your child has been playing video games a lot over the summer, now might be a good time to clean everything while they are at school! While you shouldn’t use water on these consoles, a well rung out eraser sponge would do wonders when it comes to cleaning the console itself, the controllers, or even hand held games that get carried around.

Anything to do with babies

If you have a baby or toddler, chances are many of the items you use don’t stay clean for long. Cribs, highchairs, booster seats, diaper bags… the list goes on and on. It’s important to keep your baby’s belongings clean so why not use a simple tool to get the job done?

Using Eraser Sponges to Fix Artistic Mistakes

Are you a painter? Do you sometimes make mistakes? Instead of tossing the whole project and becoming frustrated, you can use an eraser sponge to fix them!

In the past we have been sharing fun and even unique uses for your eraser sponges, but this one definitely takes the cake. From the time that eraser sponges have become popular, people have been searching for uses and tricks and you’ll want to give this trick a shot if you paint.

With water color paintings it is very easy to get paint where you didn’t mean to, and can also make it hard to change the overall look of the painting.

With eraser sponges you now have a way to do that:

-If you have something you would like to add to your water color painting, create a stencil of the object and place it on your painting wherever you want the object to be.

-Once the stencil is in place, take a small piece of an eraser sponge and wet it. Make sure to squeeze out most of the water.

-Once this is done, gently wipe the painting where the stencil is. This will bring up the paint and do this multiple times until the canvas or paper is blank again.

-Once you pull up the stencil, you will find that there is a perfect white spot in the shape of your object! This will make it easier to add in that shape or object that you couldn’t add in before.

-Before working on your project again, dry your painting or set it aside to dry naturally before continuing to work on it.

Who would have thought that eraser sponges would have such artistic uses? To order an eraser sponge for multiple uses, contact Spongeoutlet today at 877-776-6430 and shop our products online!

Keeping the Paint on Your Walls Fresh

Has the paint on your walls become dull with age?

Or has your little one expressed their creativity with bright crayon marks across the playroom walls?

In either situation, maintaining fresh, bright paint can be a bit of a task.

But we at SpongeOutlet have a few suggestions to help bring them back to life!

Dust the walls with microfiber.

Our first trade secret is a simple one – just dust your walls. In many of your rooms, a simple dusting will help get rid of the dirt, cobwebs and dust that have stuck to the surface over time.

If you let the grime on your walls build up, it will surely shorten the life of your paint.

The fibers will lock in dust while soaking up any water used during cleaning so that no streaks are left behind.

We do not recommend using a regular dish towel on the walls of your home; they can leave so much debris that your walls may end up looking worse than when you began.

Scrub the dust-free walls with an eraser sponge.

If you have markings on your walls from chairs brushing up against them – or the aforementioned “artwork” – and need something a bit stronger to clean, we have the perfect product for you.

  • Our Eraser Sponge is the tool that you are looking for, and one that every home need!

This sponge can remove grit, grime and dust from your walls without compromising the paint.

And the best part is that it will not leave behind any hazardous chemicals or odors.

The next time you are looking around your home and notice that the paint on your walls needs to be cleaned up to bring back its fresh look, think of SpongeOutlet.

We have all the products you need to freshen up your walls with ease when they do get a bit dusty or grimy.

You can place your order online or by phone at 877-776-6430.

As with any cleaning products, remember to test on a small, discreet area before cleaning the entirety of your walls.
