THE MAIDS(R) provides tips to relieve stress, a common cause of heart
OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Red -- a color that makes us think of love and Valentine's Day. This February, which also is National Heart Awareness month, let it also remind you of the health of your most important organ, your heart. A healthy heart can be attained in a variety of ways that encompass all facets of life, including your home environment. So, while you think heart smart, make sure that your home is also as healthy as possible.
THE MAIDS Home Services, a residential cleaning company that
specializes in cleaning for health, suggest the following tips for
stress-free cleaning, while putting the healthy back in your home:
-- Scrub away stress while cleaning the floors the old fashioned way-- on
hands and knees. Use a folded towel to cushion your knees and slide
around the room.
-- Turn on music you enjoy to help put you in a better mood.
-- Repetitive actions are proven to be relaxing. Try dusting, washing
windows or vacuuming to reap the benefits of repetition.
-- Using non-toxic cleaning products with enjoyable aromas ease tension.
Many products use a fragrance-oil blend for a pleasing, safe aroma.
-- Clean under sinks where unhealthy mold is present with denatured
alcohol and one-cup water. Check plumbing under sink periodically to
look for leaks.
-- Contributing to unhealthy homes are cleaning products that are strong
bases, highly acidic or contain bleach. Instead, try using
environmentally preferred cleaning products, and a little elbow grease
-- Create your own homemade cleaning solution! Vinegar, as simple as it
is, will disinfect and inhibit mold and mildew.
Remember that relieving stress through cleaning is just one part of
