Those who have a garage, storage room or attic in their home will know that this type of space usually concentrates a high degree of disorder, since they are places where it is left those things that are no longer used or that are not needed daily and the way they are left there is not always controlled.

That is why we are going to give some tips to organize better these spaces. The first of the recommendations is to narrow down the products that we are really going to use, since as many professional organizers defend, many of the objects that are conserved are because they give a false value or utility to the piece in question. That’s why the best way to do this filtering of what really matters is to completely empty the garage, storage room or similar and clean it thoroughly; excuse that will be worth to move everything from site and really evaluate each object if it is worth keeping it.

And once this first step is made, we start the organization itself, at which point we will use different tricks or elements to be able to maintain that long-awaited order.

For small objects we can use glass jars with which we can see what we have inside, thus avoiding having to label each box with what may be inside.

When it comes to protecting some clothes of little use, such as costumes, we can use strong bags or even space-saving bags, with which we can remove the air inside with a vacuum cleaner.

If the products should be handy, you can use baskets with a superior opening, to leave on a shelf or table that we have in this space.

On the contrary, if we want our things to be protected from the dust that usually accumulates in garages or similar, a good option is to use chest of drawers, for which we do not need to make a large investment, but will allow us to have all our objects sheltered and organized.

When it comes to larger pieces there are always different types of plastic boxes where you can store it; can be discovered or closed, it will depend on how accessible we need the object in question. From among the closed ones we can even find some with wheels, to be able to transport them easily and in addition many of them are stackable.

Finally, when we have all kinds of sizes of products ordered in different sizes of boxes or baskets we have to distribute this through the different shelves we have or we can buy shelves, for which you do not need to pay astronomical quantities, since there are options for high strength and for very reasonable amounts.

And voilà our garage, storage room or attic will have more space and we will have everything much more accessible and easy to find.

Make the floor of your house shine (II) – Parquet

cleaning parque floor

Here we are again with the second article concerning the cleaning of floors.

Do you get the feeling that the floor of your home does not shine as much as you would like? Well, you have reached the right place. Here we are conducting an extensive review of how to treat each type of soil. We are going to continue on the parquet floor.


The parquet is composed of wood which makes it sensitive to moisture or chemicals, as well as to scratches of hard materials. That’s why you have to take care of it to maintain its original brightness.

Like any other type of soil, depending on the treatments that the wood has had and the concrete finish will make the different tricks that we will now relate more or less effective, that is why we strongly recommend that before doing a general cleaning of the floor, before you should try it in a corner that is not in view, as for example under the sofa, to avoid possible surprises later.

Regular cleaning

Experts recommend avoiding the use of brooms, it is better to use vacuum cleaners with soft brushes, which will help eliminate dust and dirt that accumulates on a daily basis. Also, unless it is necessary, it is not recommended to perform this operation more than twice a week.

To mop the parquet the most important recommendation is that it is done with the mop well drained, which is why it is also recommended that it has to be very absorbent, as is the case of Pamex Ballarina. In addition, this mop is practically a cloth, which allows specific treatments to maintain the brightness of the parquet. It should be noted that for the day to day the most important thing is to use a cleaning product suitable for parquet, because otherwise we can damage it.

Another recommendation is to dry the floor after having passed the mop, for that you can always use a mop that has microfiber cloth. In addition, this cleaning tool can also replace the vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt, since there are many types of microfiber mops and others with electrostatic cloths that attract dust.

Finally, to get the perfect care of the wood is to use once a month a product suitable for parquet that improves its brightness. And more occasionally you can also use pine oil or flaxseed; as well as suitable waxes for this type of floors.

Home trick

If you want to improve the brightness of your parquet you can carry out this trick, but only in a very punctual way, because if it is used on a regular basis it will be harmful. With the floor well aspirated o cleaned you can perform this process. Prepare a mixture of 1 cup of vinegar for 4 litres of water, then, with a wet a rag or the mop Ballarina, drain it well and you pass it gently through your parquet (remember to previously make tests in areas that are not in sight). Once you have finished, dry the floor well and ventilate the room.

Grease stains

When an accident happens, like when a food plate falls to the ground, it is very likely that it carries oil or some type of fat, which instantly causes a stain on this type of floor. That’s why you have to act quickly by applying talcum powder and these will absorb the excess fat. It is recommended to leave it for 24 hours, to let it work. Then the talcum powder should be removed with a vacuum cleaner, which will leave the surface with a whitish stain, so the next step is to clean the area with a cloth moistened in water and a product suitable for parquet. Finally, as always, excess moisture should be removed.

Avoid scratches

An advice to avoid that the floor finish full of scratches is to use adhesive protectors for the furniture or other option like dowels that can be nailed directly to the furniture if these are made of wood. With this type of products you will caress your parquet when drag a piece of furniture.

It is also advisable not to walk around the house with stiletto shoes that can also damage this type of floor; as well as shoes that can be made with materials that can grate the parquet. In fact, if you use a slipper to be at home regularly, you will also avoid having your floor dirty and also possible stones that can get caught in some rubber soles.

Other marks that can appear in this type of floor are those that the pets produce; dogs, cats, etc .; with their nails, that’s why it’s important to keep them short.

In the case that we are late for this care to avoid scratches, there is always the option of sanding the parquet, as long as it is made of wood. In a synthetic floor there would be no other option but to change it.


This is another problem that can affect your parquet, as the wood loses colour with its contact with the sun. Certainly, it is not necessary to live in the dark, but if the parquet is in a room where you do not enter much, the best option is that the curtains or blinds are lowered, in this way we will keep the brightness and intensity of colour for more time.

When you wash this type of floor it must be with the mop well drained, because an excess of water can damage the wood and even deform it. That’s why there is recommended to use mops that absorb a lot, like the ones you can find here.

Waxing is not a good idea for floating-type laminate flooring, because it could appear an opaque that will be very difficult to remove. And if the floor is made with synthetic material, it is not recommended to polish it because it is not a material that can be renewed.

A good help to avoid traces of the street that could scratch or damage the laminate flooring is to use a carpet or similar at the entrance of the house (here you have some to choose from). The furniture can also damage this type of floor so it is highly recommended to use furniture protectors; there are many types of materials (in our store you can choose).

Finally, if you want to give a special treatment to get a little shine to your platform you must follow the following steps:

  • Boil water in a pot with two bags of black tea and let it stay for 2 minutes.
  • Filter the mixture and avoid residues
  • Add a cup of this tea to a bucket of water and clean with a drained mop, on an already cleaned floor.

Another option:

  • Fill a bucket with hot water; add a mixture of 1/3 cup of vinegar and 2 jets of liquid detergent to clean the dishes.
  • Wash the laminate flooring in the same direction as the floorboards.


REMINDER: If you have natural wood flooring, drain the mop very well. Ah! And it is recommended not to wash more than 6 square meters without washing the mop, because in this way the dirt would be spread on the floor.
