End on a high note

It’s time for Christ­mas cheer and relaxation. But be­fore we can kick back and get fes­tive, we need to make sure that our guests feel wel­come in a space that’s spick and span

Sum­mer­time means braais with fam­ily and friends, and long, lazy din­ners on the pa­tio. It may seem im­pos­si­ble to clean the whole house be­fore peo­ple come round – es­pe­cially with all the hol­i­days – but, in some ways, it’s the per­fect time for giv­ing your home a good clean. With no school runs or work re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, you can re­ally get stuck in (and, since the whole fam­ily will be around, they can pull their weight too, which will cut clean­ing time in half). Grab your MAQ Mul­ti­pur­pose Cream Cleaner, along with some cloths and sponges, and you’re ready to go!

En­ter­tain­ing out­side?

Plas­tic out­door chairs and ta­bles, as well as pa­tio tiles, can be washed with a di­lu­tion of MAQ Mul­ti­pur­pose Cream Cleaner and warm water. Stub­born stains? Just use the cream cleaner neat and let it stand for a few min­utes. Guest-ready in no time!

Get your kitchen in tip-top shape

Let’s face it – the kitchen is al­ways busy, and even more so dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son. Get­ting it De­cem­ber-ready doesn’t need to take up half the hol­i­day, though. First off, di­lute some MAQ Mul­ti­pur­pose Cream Cleaner in warm water in the sink. Use this to wipe down the coun­ters, out­side of the cup­boards, your small ap­pli­ances, as well as the out­side and in­side of the fridge. The back­splash, stove hood and other ex­tra-grimy sur­faces (top of the fridge, any­one?) can be eas­ily cleaned by us­ing MAQ Mul­ti­pur­pose Cream Cleaner neat. Leave it for a few min­utes and wipe away! Once you’re done, use the MAQ Mul­ti­pur­pose Cream Cleaner di­luted in water to clean the floor.

A bril­liant bath­room

If you have guests com­ing round, the bath­room will need to be sparkling – thank­fully, keep­ing it (and the loo) cleaner for longer is easy with MAQ products. Use MAQ Mul­ti­pur­pose Thick Bleach neat to dis­in­fect the whole toi­let, while MAQ Mul­ti­pur­pose Cream Cleaner used neat will re­move even stub­born soap scum from the bath, wash basin and shower. Buff the taps with a lint-free cloth to give them a bright shine af­ter wip­ing them down. Di­lute some MAQ Mul­ti­pur­pose Cream Cleaner to wash the floor and other tiled sur­faces like the walls, pay­ing spe­cial attention to the tiles be­hind the wash basin and tub.
