AirBnB Cleaning Hacks: Quick Solutions for Common AirBnB Messes

As an AirBnB host, being prepared for unexpected messes is crucial to maintaining a seamless guest experience. Quick and efficient cleaning solutions can save the day when time is of the essence. Here are some cleaning hacks to tackle common messes in your AirBnB property:

1. Coffee or wine stains: Blot the stain with a cloth to absorb excess liquid. Mix a solution of water and mild dish soap, then gently dab the stain. Rinse with cold water and dab dry.

2. Crumbs on furniture: For a quick clean, use a lint roller to remove crumbs and debris from upholstery and cushions.

3. Dusty lampshades: Use a lint roller or microfiber cloth to gently remove dust from lampshades. A soft brush also works well for fabric lampshades.

4. Grease stains in the kitchen: Sprinkle baking soda on the area and leave on for a few minutes. Wipe off the baking soda and grease with a damp cloth.

5. Toothpaste spillage in the bathroom: Wipe up spilled toothpaste with a damp cloth. If residue remains, use a mixture of baking soda and water to scrub gently.

6. Pet hair on furniture: Wrap tape or masking tape around your hand (sticky side out) and gently pat furniture to pick up pet hair.

7. Soap scum in the shower: Mix equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto the soap scum, let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub and rinse.

8. Marker or pen marks: Rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball or cloth can effectively remove marker or pen marks from surfaces.

9. Dusty blinds: Use tongs and microfiber cloths to quickly clean both sides of your blinds at once.

10. Dirty microwave: Fill a microwave-safe bowl with water and a slice of lemon. Microwave on high for a few minutes, then wipe off the dirt.

11. Odour disposal: Run ice cubes and citrus peel through the disposal to freshen it up and remove odours.

12. Shoe prints on floors: A pencil eraser can work wonders for shoe scuff marks on hardwood or tiled floors.

13. Dirty oven: Make a paste of baking soda and water, apply to oven surfaces and leave overnight. Wipe off the paste and dirt the next day.

14. Dusty baseboards: Use a dryer sheet to quickly wipe down baseboards. The anti-static properties will repel dust. 15. Air freshener: Place a bowl of vinegar in a room to absorb odours, or simmer a pot of water with citrus peel for a natural scent.

With these cleaning hacks at your fingertips, you’ll be well-equipped to deal with common messes and keep your AirBnB property in tip-top shape. By addressing these issues in a timely manner, you’ll maintain a clean and welcoming environment that will make a positive impression on your guests.
