Vacuum-less Car Cleaning

Vacuum-less Car Cleaning

For first-time car owners, the additional cost that comes with it can be surprising. They must understand that aside from accessories and repair, they also have to spend on cleaning; not only the outside but also the inside. The usual way of cleaning inside a car is with a vacuum. It is for the regular removal of hair, fur, and dust stuck inside.  However, not because you had the ability to purchase the car doesn’t always mean you are also capable of buying a vacuum and paying for additional charges that comes through your electric bill. You can still be practical even with a car… No, we mean ESPECIALLY with a car.

Today we will be discussing about practical tips on how to clean your car without using a vacuum. Now, get ready to take notes because you will probably need these recommendations:

Use a Cleaning towel – areas that you usually touch such as the steering wheel, dashboard, cup-holders, buttons, and door handles, should be cleaned thoroughly because they can easily harbor and spread germs and bacteria. They are also more likely to get dirt and stains because they get into contact with your hands, which also gets into contact with countless number of things. Lola Wowables™ is one of the tools that you must grab.

Get your hands into an all-around cleaning mop – For a quick and easy removal of dust and dirt, you need something that’s not a vacuum but works like one. A cleaning mop with a sticky head is best to clean the roof, the floor, the under-seats, and the trunk/luggage compartment. These are areas that are beyond arm’s reach so you might find it difficult to clean them with a common, short-handled brush. We recommend Lola Rola Sticky Mop™ for this job; engineered with a long and durable handle, it is capable of reaching deep places and narrow gaps. It can even be used on your vehicle carpets. It also has a cleaning sheet that is sticky and capable of collecting small and even microscopic dirt. You can also tear it when it gets filled with dust and dirt. Meanwhile, refills can be purchased separately.

Always keep a brush and a dust pan close to you – For bigger debris or tougher dirt, you might need to level up your cleaning with a combination of a brush and a dust pan to collect and properly dispose them. You can count on our Dust Pan & Brush Set - Clip On for pieces of trash, balls of hair, crumbled paper, etc. Make sure you also have a garbage bag with you that has enough capacity to have everything that you will get inside the car.

Big or small, it is possible to remove dirt or dust even without the use of a vacuum or other electronic devices similar to it. So no matter if you just want to save or you are just eco-friendly, you can always check Lola’s efficient and environment-friendly cleaning tools that you can use for your car. We have a roster of other brushes, cleaning towels, and scrubbers that will make it your life as a vehicle owner much easier.

So, it is still a must to practice all sorts of safety measures to remain healthy. One of these measures is having a clean and safe environment.

Use protective gear for routine cleaning and disinfection – When cleaning your home, wearing of cleaning gloves, mask, and eye guard are essential to protect your eyes, nose, and mouth that may serve as entryway of disease-causing germs and viruses. Frequent cleaning of touched surfaces such as Tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks is necessary. For these surfaces, you can use Lola Wowables™ together with household disinfectants against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Keep a separate room and bathroom (If possible) for people that are sick – During outbreaks, home quarantine is a considerable option especially when hospitals and other medical facilities can no longer accommodate the massive number of patients. When at home, an ill individual must be isolated from other healthy family members unless proven that his/her illness cannot be passed. Otherwise, a separate room and bathroom (if space allows) must be prepared to reduce the exposure and the contact between the patient and other the healthy people. You must also clean these facilities used by the infected individual with disinfectant regularly. Use protective gear when doing so. You can also count on our Lola Rola Sticky Mop™ for debris and stains on walls and floors. It also has cleaning sheets that you can tear and dispose instantly afterwards.

This also applies on other clothing materials such as towels, linens, and other items. Thoroughly clean them with Lola Scrub brush to remove all debris including dirt and dust. You should also disinfect laundry hampers to make sure there’s no live virus left.

Have proper sanitation in food preparation – Food plays a crucial part in spreading viruses since we consume it through ingestion, germs and bacteria that can make us sick may come along. It is important to properly wash and sanitize your hands before you handle food to prevent contamination. Also make sure that you have a cleaning cloth such as Lola Anti-microbial Clean N' Wipe™ cloths by your side to wipe countertops, cooking tools, or your hands.

Practice proper waste disposal – Before throwing anything in the trash, make sure you have a bag that won’t leak or spill the garbage. Use protective gear when removing garbage bags, and handling and disposing of trash. Use Lola Handled Scrubber Brush to disinfect and clean garbage cans and bins and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.

Choosing the Best Wet Mop

Choosing the Best Wet Mop

In professional cleaning, using of wet mops is said to be the second step in cleaning a surface. Over the years, the wet mop is our ally in sweeping over surfaces to dissolve and absorb excess moisture, fat, mud, and dried-in liquid contaminations.

Common wet mops consist of a flat sheet of microfiber textile or a sheet with a surface of looped yarn. But since it was invented, introduction of new refinements and variations of mop designs never ceased.

Wet mops are still widely used all over the world nowadays. But almost every manufacturer has integrated their own touch to the design of the common wet mop especially us at Lola who creatively thought of innovations that can make its use easier and more convenient. Here are some of our wet mop products:

COTTON FLOOR WET MOP W/ SCUFF REMOVER™ - This high-quality mop is engineered with a soft cotton banded floor mop yarn head that is exceptionally absorbent. Its looks may resemble the typical wet mop but if you look closely, there is an attached scuff removing scrub pad to help remove and collect different types of dirt, debris and stains from floors.

All About Refillables

All About Refillables

When we hear the word refillable, water bottles and containers are what commonly and instantly comes to mind. But there are so many other things that we can consider as refillable since people are good at finding ways to save and utilize things.

Think about it like this, buying a replacement part for your bicycle or car which is more affordable than purchasing a brand new one, right? This is also possible and being widely practiced when it comes to cleaning tools! Through it we promote practicality and cost-efficiency because we get to keep the important part and just purchase a replacement for its cleaning end. In short, we pay for the price of a single part instead of buying the whole product again!

Lola also believes that it is better to just replace a part that don’t function anymore and keep the entire tool than to throw away everything because that’s just a complete waste of materials. But we understand that not everything can be separated into individual parts especially most common cleaning tools.

 So, our solution is to re-invent and create cleaning tools with removable cleaning parts, so the owner can keep the handles for as long as they still do not need replacements. We also built our products to be extra durable so our customers can really expect them to last long.

Here are some of Lola’s refillable cleaning tools:

360° Extender Duster SetTime to put down your feather duster because we have an even better dusting tool right here for you!

Couch Stains Cleaning Solutions

Couch Stains Cleaning Solutions

The couch is one of the most comfortable places to relax yourself. However, it can also become stressing especially when you see it messy and filled with stains. Vacuuming it may be easy especially if you are just eliminating dust, collecting fur or other types of debris.

But how about stains? It is not something which can be sucked up easily as it goes deep within leather and fabric.  Knowing how to clean a couch means knowing how to remove stains. You are free to use the cleaner of your choice meaning you can look for cheaper and kinder to the Earth. But you have to know that the tool you use is very important. It must be effective and efficient to ensure that task will be done.

Here we will be giving you some tips as well as some product recommendations which can help you resolve these couch issues:

Fabric upholstery - Couches with this material are considered scratch-resistant but hard to clean; they are easily stained and will absorb odors such as smoke. It can also be susceptible to dust mite and tend to trap pet hair and dust, so it is not good for allergies.

To clean, we recommend wiping it all over with Lola Rola Sticky Mop™ to trap all unnecessary filth and scrubbing it with our Anti-Microbial Clean N' Wipe™ Cleaning Cloth to remove the stains. You can also use our Cellulose Sponge Cleaning Cloth as a second cloth to absorb moisture and remove soap.

Leather upholstery: Unlike its fabric counterpart, you cannot usually wash leather-covered materials. But don’t worry because these are usually resistant to stains. However, they are prone to scratch and may still get soiled from time to time. In these cases, all you can do is spray the cleaner and wipe it with Lola Wowables™. Since leather couches are durable, they will last long. But through time they will fade and that will require higher maintenance to prevent aging.

Synthetic upholstery: Since this type of material can be damaged by too much heat and agitation, it must be treated extra carefully. What you need is a soft cloth such as our Jumbo Microfiber Cleaning Cloth to remove stains. This tool is made up of materials that prevents scratches to surfaces so rest assured your furniture will be taken care of.

Understanding how you must treat your couch based on its composition is key to effectively cleaning and maintaining it. You also need the collective help of tools and cleaning agents that will work effectively on different types of stains.

You also must be consistent with cleaning if you really want to make your couch long-lasting. Try to find a schedule that works best for you and test if you could make it a routine.

These Lola cleaning cloths that you used, can be cleaned and re-washed for re-use on other furniture and other parts of the house. Rest assured that they have the same effectiveness and efficiency even after a tough couch cleaning task.
