The best tips and tools for cleaning some common household items
Sometimes you just can’t find the right tool for the job, even with all the usual cleaning tools at your disposal. Here are some tips for those items and places that are always a pain to keep squeaky clean.
The microwaveThe solution for a clean microwave is in your refrigerator (or maybe in the produce section of the grocery store). Microwave a cup of water and a few lemon slices, and then use a sponge to clean the microwave with the warm water.
Grease stainsThis one works on clothes as well as surfaces. Rub white chalk on the grease stain, let it sit for five minutes, and then wipe it away with a wet rag.

"Nick Wall was amazing in helping us sell our condo in Mira Mesa and buy a home in Rancho Bernardo. Very knowledgeable of of the processes and was able to get us exactly what we wanted.

Nick was transparent throughout the entire process and was patient in answering our many questions.
