DealDash Family Guide to Outside Chores


Now is the time that there are tons of outside chores. DealDash has some suggestions to help include the whole family.

Summer is the season where there are many outdoor chores that need to be done. While the kids get to have fun outside, it’s important that you don’t forget all of the chores that come with the temperature rising. The good news is that you can get everyone to help. Follow these tips from DealDash to get everyone involved.

Lawn Care for Everyone

When I say lawn care, you probably assume I mean cutting grass and edging. While those are important parts, you can get the family to help out with pulling weeds or spreading grass seed. When it comes to pulling weeds, you can make it a race to see who can get the most weeds in a certain amount of time.

Gardening Together

Everyone loves the look of a nice garden. It’s not nearly as difficult as most people think. Find a local nursery that can guide you through what plants to use based on your soil and how much sun you get in a specific spot. I’m sure the kids would be willing to help out. I know my kids love playing in the dirt!

Cleaning the patio

It’s important to keep your patio clean. I find the best way to do that is to hose it down frequently. If you’re keeping up with our posts, you may have read our recent Summer Activities post which included some water games. Kill two birds with one stone and hose down the patio the same day that you’re playing water games. As an added bonus, this gives you the chance to spray the kids and have a little fun!

Power Washing – Let DealDash Help

This is one of my guilty pleasures. Doing a quick “wash” with a normal garden hose will keep residue from building up, but power washing goes to the next level. Whether I’m spraying the patio, the deck, or the siding, there’s something oddly satisfying about watching built-up grime slowly peel away. This is another chore that you could entrust an older 12+ responsible child to handle. As long as they’re using it properly and avoiding glass, there are a limited number of issues that can pop up.

Not everyone has a power washer, though. DealDash can solve that problem! If you’re in the market for your first power washer or a replacement for your old one, just click here. You will find a couple of different choices of power washers. You can also browse the Home, Garden, and Tools category, right here.

Office Cleaning the DealDash Way


Want to have an office as clean as the one above? Clean your office the DealDash way.

What is cleaning the office the DealDash way? Quite simply, it’s cleaning the office as you would any room in the home – quickly, thoroughly, and with more brain power than brawn. Read on for more details.

Clean as You Go

Don’t wait until your office (or home office) is a gigantic mess before you decide to clean it. Clean it a bit each day, empty the trash, clear off the desk clutter, and wipe down the surfaces daily. Do you have an office cleaner that comes in to do these things already? Use your time for other cleaning tasks, then, ones that aren’t done as often. Do a different task each day and see your office sparkle.

Enlist Others to Help You Clean

Perhaps you work in a small office that only has a cleaner come in once per week. Don’t do all of the daily cleaning yourself, enlist other people to help share the burden of the work. If you can get each person in your office (even if there are only a few) commit to doing certain cleaning tasks, then that will make your life so much easier. If you just have a home office that needs cleaning, then I guess you’re on your own! Unless you can convince your family members to help you, that is.

Keep It Simple

You don’t need all kinds of fancy cleaning products to keep your home office or small business office clean! You just need one all-purpose cleaner and either paper towels or some cleaning rags. If you’re wondering which all-purpose cleaner to use, I suggest the cheapest and easiest of them all – white vinegar! You can use white vinegar and water in a 50/50 solution that will clean, disinfect, de-stink, and even clean glass to a nice, bright shine with little effort on your part! Just get an empty spray bottle (they have them in the travel section in the big box stores), and fill it with a 50/50 vinegar and water solution. Simple, easy, cheap, and completely kid and pet safe!

Be Gentle With Yourself

If you’re a perfectionist, try to be gentle with yourself. If you have a small office or home office and no professional cleaners, then it isn’t going to be perfect. Just do the best you can, follow these tips, and stick with it. The longer you keep up the cleaning plan, the cleaner it will become over time. You can do it!
