As I did some housekeeping this weekend, I found myself Googling around for good cleaning guides and was surprised by the dearth of helpful articles out there. Because cleaning guides are a home-related topic, they typically get good ad revenues. What's more, we all have to clean, so everyone has at least a few time-saving tips to share. Why not cash in on those tips? Join the Weekly Topic Inspiration crew this week by sharing some of your best cleaning guides and advice!
Here are some commonly-searched keywords to give you inspiration: how to clean your house, how to clean a bathroom, housekeeping tips, home carpet cleaning, oven cleaner, how to clean glass top stove, cleaning glass top stoves, how to clean a dishwasher, dishwasher rince aid, dishwasher detergent, cleaning out my closet, clean house, spring cleaning, stain removal, cleaning tips, house cleaning tips, spring cleaning checklist, spring clean, how to remove stains, cleaning tips for the home, household tips and tricks, spring cleaning, carpet cleaner, duct cleaning, how to clean leather, carpet cleaning services, home cleaning services, housekeeping services, carpet stain removal, professional cleaning services...
Basically, there are a TON of people searching for cleaning advice. 'Nuff said.

My hub shows you how to get rid of stains from clothing, carpet and wooden furniture without using harmful chemicals. A lot of the things in my hub can be found in your common cupboard. This is such a great topic. Enjoy!
Ok, first, I think you've broken some sort of record with WTI speed! Way to go, brittanytodd! Also, this is just the sort of guide I need! My wooden cafe table could really use the polish outlined in your Hub, so I'm going to try it out this weekend
Thank you both so much! Hopefully you will be able to get rid of those ring marks, Simone! Denise, thank you for commenting and reading my hubs. I really appreciate it and am now a proud follower of you too.
I wrote about cleaning tile and grout in the bathroom, a task I truly dislike -ugh!! The harsh chemical cleaners I've tried in the past make my eyes sting and my throat sore, so I rounded up some hints from some old Housekeeping type books my grandmothers gave me when I first moved out on my own. Not that I ever read them....until now, that is!
You're not alone, Avamum! I'll be trying out these more natural methods though- they certainly sound more desirable when compared to all that gross, unpleasant stuff one usually deals with when cleaning!
Suggestions? Tosh! This is really awesome! I love the before and after photos, and the Hub is useful, succinct, and easy to digest! My only suggestion is that you join us for WTI more! It's awesome to have you in on the fun!
Looks like Drano will figure prominently into these hubs about cleaning. Actually, it already has, like taking the prime position on a hub about bringing houseplants indoors for the winter...what's Drano got to do with that?
Everyone is talking about good housekeeping habits. Should those good habits be limited to your closet, or bathroom or kitchen? Well, shouldn’t you develop good housekeeping habits for your other homes – like your INBOX, your FACEBOOK, your TWITTER, your DESKTOP or your LAPTOP? Here are some useful quick tips for all some of these...
First, I want to give a really big thanks to everyone who participated in this week's Weekly Topic Inspiration thread. I think this is the best one I've ever seen!!
Because we seem to have a bunch of really stellar DIY and cleaning experts with us, I've made the next WTI themes DIY Home Improvement Projects and De-Cluttering tips. Stop by the forum thread to join in on the fun!
I've also made these themes part of a two week WTI (that's why there are two instead of one) so that everyone has more time to write. I hope you'll weigh in!
In other news... I did a really thorough cleaning of my apartment this weekend, referring to many of your Hubs for help. My place is cleaner than it has been IN MONTHS! Thank you so much for your help!!
... also, does anyone have advice on getting that vinegar smell off one's skin? I didn't wear gloves.... =___=
I decided to go with a different type of cleaning than what we have so far (some great hubs this week, by the way!). Once we get the physical cleaning done, sometimes we need to do a little energy cleaning of the home too.
I just happened to be completing a hub about cleaning when I happened across this forum. I hope I am not too late to join in the 'cleaning fun'. I have just written a hub on the topic of keeping a house clean on a day to day basis when you have kids. As anyone with kids will know, it is not an easy feat. After years of struggling, I have come up with a method that WORKS!
I clean, you clean... we all clean! Even my friends who REFUSE to clean (or even find someone to clean for them) find themselves scrambling to straighten (say, when a date is coming over...). Seeing as cleaning is a somewhat universal activity, I thought we could all benefit from swapping our best...

I again everyone! I wanted to suggest another Weekly Topic of Inspiration about "Taking the Offensive Against Hackers." These days, we all know that we should use updated antivirus and firewall software to help keep "malware" out of our PCs. That's a given. But what ELSE are we...
