For the teams from MaidPerfectPDX, cleaning a home doesn't simply mean wiping away all of the dust and grime. It also means finishing the job by using as many eco-friendly products as possible. Occasionally, the staff members even make their own cleaning solutions using the same method Cinderella used to make her perfume: by mixing a base of pure water and vinegar and adding a splash of essential oils—such as lavender, vanilla, or almond—for fragrance. Armed with these hypoallergenic, family-friendly products, they thoroughly scour nooks and crannies throughout the home. The teams can dust reachable surfaces, scrub kitchen sinks, vacuum rugs, and wipe down mirrors, leaving abodes spotless without ever having to resort to toxic chemicals.
