House Cleaning Help Needed?
Ask Your Question Here

Sometimes we all need a bit of house cleaning help, when we just don't know how to clean something. Ask your questions here, and see if you can stump me.

As a busy Mom I get frustrated when my kids (or my husband, or even me!) do something that causes me to stop everything and clean up the mess. I get even more frustrated though if I have no idea what I need to do to get the dirt or stain or whatever cleaned up.

Please note there is quite a backlog for questions at this time, but I do answer the most common and popular ones eventually! :)

In general, how to clean up the mess is one of the questions this website is designed to answer. It is meant to be a resource for you to get tips and information to get the messes cleaned up, so you can get back to having fun with your family.

However, there is no way I could possibly answer every question that will come up. In the stain removal section of the site several people have written in to ask me for stain removal help. Since that worked so well, I thought I would do the same thing in the cleaning section, where you can ask me for cleaning help.

You can also ask laundry questions in the laundry section of the site, in case you need help with that too.

You can ask your own cleaning question here. In addition, here are the questions that I've answered so far:
