Cleaning and Baby-Proofing your Children’s' Playroom

Everything about the children automatically puts us in the extreme caution and TLC (Tender Loving Care) mode

Making sure that their playroom is clean and safe should be one of our top priorities as parents/guardians.

Lola will give a guide along with product recommendations to all parents out there who want to ensure that the well-being and safety of their children are being looked after 24/7. But before that, we will first discuss some of the things that you should look out for inside your child’s playroom.

Toys and Debris – These are seldom your problem if you have a newborn or infant who spend most of their time in bed or in a crib. But for parents with toddlers who are free and capable of running around, they should be alert every time their kids are around these. Regularly wiping your kid’s toy with our Jumbo Microfiber Cloth will also help keep your child away from sickness since its fibers will dig deep into crevices, then rest assured that toys will be clean and safe to be played with.

Dust and other Allergens – Aside from keeping our children safe, it is also our priority to keep them healthy. Thus, we want their playroom to be free from anything that can make them sick. Dusts and allergens are our common nemesis not only in our child’s room but also on different parts of the house. For pillows, tables, and other furniture, you can use Lola 360° Duster Extender Kit to remove dust and dirt. If you are looking for a reliable tool for collecting dust and disease-causing particles on the ceiling, floor, and walls, then our very own Lola Rola Sticky Mop™ is all you need.

Falling Hazards – No one in the right mind would put anything that can harm a child on high places inside the kid’s playroom. The best thing that a parent must do is to make sure that nothing will fall from cabinets or furniture that can hit their children.

Spilled Food/Drinks - Leftover food that fell on the floor will invite insects such as ants. Their bite may cause intolerable itch and pain to a poor child.

Best Ways to Clean Your Roof

Best Ways to Clean Your Roof

The Roof is the most important part of your home or office in terms of providing shelter and protection from the weather.  It also serves as a platform that holds equipment and facilities like solar panels, vent pipes, antennas, gutters, and satellite dishes together. It has to remain durable and compact at all times.

In order to achieve this, owners must understand that the strength of the roof depends on the material used and if the decking or supports have been subject to leaks, moisture, and rot. There are different materials for residential roofs such as asphalt shingle, clay tile, cedar shakes, slate, or metal. Tile, slate, and metal are the most durable and long lasting among these materials.

Asphalt shingle roofs are cheaper but also lasts shorter compared to hard roofing materials. Over time, constant rain, hail, and wind can cause serious damage that could lead to disintegration. After it completely wears off, its surface will no longer be effective in terms of protecting the home.

Tile and slate roofs on the other hand are not that susceptible to environmental factors. However, they other forces can lead to their breakage—people stepping on them incorrectly, branches and other hard objects falling on them. The durable layer underneath the roof catches the moisture and heat that goes through the breaks and cracks in the slate and tile. So cracks or breaks in clay and slate tiles must be repaired because damaging the inner layer can be more costly.

One common problem when it comes to all types of roof is the growth of molds, especially in areas where heat and humidity are high. No type of roof is impenetrable to mold. The key to keeping a roof healthy is by cleaning it regularly. Roofs will dry off overtime, but to make drying quicker, you can use Lola Wowables™. The all-around cleaning cloth that’s reusable and eco-friendly. They can also help remove stains, grime, and molds on the roof,

Speaking of molds, these are the common destroyer of tile roofs. It sends down micro-roots into cracks and fissures, widening them and compromising the integrity of the tiles. That’s why regularly brushing them off would help a lot in prolonging the life of your tile roof. For quick and effective removal of molds, you can use Lola Deck Scrub Brush on tile roof.

Mold on asphalt shingles absorbs heat, which makes the roof hotter and heats up the attic space under the roof. As the layer of mold thickens, it absorbs more heat and increases the weight carried by the roof. Combined with piles of leaves, twigs, and other materials that reaches the roof, it may eventually break. To prevent this from happening, make sure you regularly check your roof. You can use our Corn Broom to instantly sweep debris off and reduce the weight on your roof. It has durable and compact bristles that can survive high temperature and moisture.

Clear gutters water will keep rainwater from flowing down to the pipes. Debris however, will stop the draining of water and cause mold build-up because of the stagnant water. However, with the Lola Dust Pan and Brush Set Clip On, you can collect debris and dispose them properly so that roof water can continue to free-flow.

Cleaning is one of the best ways to reinforce your roof and prevent damage. It is not a forever solution though, because damages are inevitable and they will really require repair especially after windstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. Leaks can also severely affect vulnerable areas so you have to be very alert and cautious in checking them and giving them attention.

Speaking of sponges, today we will be discussing about ways on how you can use your common cleaning sponge more creatively.

Sponge protective padding – When putting things on boxes, the same sponge that you use when washing the dishes can serve as a good alternative for bubble wrap and tissue paper in protecting valuable or fragile belongings.

You can use Pot Brite™ Scour N' Sponge because it is made to provide extra protection to help prevent even the slightest scratches to delicate pieces of glass and porcelain.

Alternative Knee Pads – When cleaning the floor, getting down on your knees has always been torture, giving us intolerable knee pain, sores, and blisters. Using sport kneepads may look weird and is considered as unnecessary cost. Why buy if you can use an alternative at home? What we mean by the alternative is your dishwashing sponge. Aligning the soft part of the sponge to your knees and the abrasive part to the floor can give you protection. Use Pot Brite™ Heavy Duty Scrub Sponges. It is made strong and suitable to carry heavy wait without causing damage to the floor and to your knees.

Clean containers and bottles with narrow openings – Stressed about how to clean your bottles and jars at home because you don’t know what bottle cleaning tool would work?

To achieve more desirable results, we recommend the Pot Brite™ All Purpose Scrub Sponges, the cleaning tool designed with the efficiency and durability required for all types of cleaning tasks.

For fur remover – For animal lovers, pet fur is a common problem. Buying a pet hair remover can be expensive. Just grab a sponge and use its rough surface to pick up fur and hair by rubbing it over furniture or clothing. We greatly believe that our Cellulose Sponge and Scourer has the right texture and composition to remove fur. If you really want an instant and lasting solution, just purchase Lola Rola Sticky Mop™ which has an adhesive rolling mop head that collects fur, dirt and dust.

Utensil Cleaner – Even with all its versatility and flexibility, sponges still works best in dishwashing. Plates and bowls area a piece of cake. Utensils however, are a different story. Cleaning them requires intricacy. But you’ll have no problem with the Scrub N' Wipe Boss because unlike the common sponge, it is made with a slit specifically added for cleaning utensils. You just have to slide them in and out until it’s all clean.

Cleaning and Maintaining Antiques and Collectibles

Cleaning and Maintaining Antiques and Collectibles

For collectors, every cleaning is literally a ‘make it or break it’ moment for their collection, whereas mistakes are costly so they need to be extremely cautious in their every move. The cleaning process varies depending on the materials used in making the item.

Here, we will narrow down our discussion to cleaning antique wood, antique metal and general collectible items along with some product recommendations that will ensure the preservation of their quality:

Antique Wood

Our first tip is to avoid using water as it can easily get into the wood grain or between wood veneers that can lead to different issues such as swelling, buckling, and separation of the wood. Also, avoid using products that require diluting with a lot of water or any high-liquid cleaning solution to prevent any irreversible effect to the quality of your antiques.

Use only soft 100% cotton cloth such as Lola’s All Purpose cloth and carefully wipe the furniture in circular motions so you will not leave any damage. Also, avoid harmful or intense chemicals for cleaning. Instead, you can use solutions such as mineral spirits to treat antique wood furniture.

Meanwhile, our super absorbent Cellulose Sponge Cloth is perfect for cleaning and drying glasses and mirrors on the furniture. They ensure no moisture will be left and that the glass will not have any streaks or stains.

Antique Metal

Rust is the main problem of antique metal collectors. This means soft cloth and cleaning solution will not work. Instead, you have to look for a better tool to deal it. Something with an abrasive surface such as our Wonder Scourer™ Non Scratch Scouring Pad that you can use to brush off the rust without leaving scratches to the metal. Just be careful not to use it on polished surfaces to prevent scratching it.

You can also try our Lola Wowables™ in applying an appropriate cleaning solution, wiping clean the metal right after brushing off the rust, and wiping the metal dry/making sure there is no more solution left on it.

Collectibles Items

People usually collect several things. It may vary from toys, coins, comic books, stamps and many more. These items are kept commonly because of two reasons; either high monetary or sentimental value.

There is a general rule whereas seldom do these items need to be cleaned with water. Either because of what they are made of or because it may affect their quality. So avoid using it unless you do not mind them having lesser or zero monetary value.

Most collectible items need only dusting. Even if you keep them on glass drawer, dust may still stick into them so dusting them regularly is a must. Use soft and light cleaning materials on their boxes and on the items themselves. 360° Extender Duster Kit can offer its gentle touch that removes dirt and dust without affecting the collectibles. You can also use our Jumbo Microfiber cleaning cloth, which is also gentle but has fibers that can easily pick-up dirt.
