Thanksgiving Dish & Drink Pairing

Marketing Team - Monday, November 21, 2016

When thinking about Thanksgiving, we have a lot of reasons to be thankful! Life, good health, living in a wonderful community, family, friends, the list could go on and on!  Here at Dura-Shine Clean, we know first-hand how crazy family dinners are, especially “BIG” family dinners like Thanksgiving.


Try something different this Thanksgiving by pair your drinks with dinner…. No matter what you drink, whether its wine, beer, cider or root beer floats, everything tastes better when paired properly. 


Here is a chart you can follow to help you pair your meal. Let us know what your favorite pairings were! 


Add A Washington Twist:
We are lucky to live in this area that has so many wines and craft beers! Have a true Washington Thanksgiving by pairing your food with local drinks instead!

After the Meal:
The worst part of big dinners is clean up!  No one likes to do the dishes, or clear the table. It’s funny to watch how fast the entire family can disappear or fall asleep at the exact moment that clean up starts.

It’s probably because no one wants to accept responsibility for the drink/food spills on Grandma’s lace table cloth or the white carpet!

For all stains the important thing is to get on it ASAP, the sooner the better, and remember to blot not rub or scrub (this only squishes the stain in worse). If the stains are pesky and refuse treatment, or if your home needs a thorough post-Thanksgiving clean, give us a call!


Kickstart the Fall season with clean home and appliances

- Saturday, August 22, 2015
Summer is winding down and Fall is almost upon us. That means back-to-school, football, the smell of pumpkin spice wafting through the air, crisp Fall weather, and a busy home as we prepare for the holidays. During the fall season we also spend more time indoors, perhaps cozying up to the fireplace, than in our backyard around the grill. It can be a joyous time, yet overwhelming, time for everyone. There are guests to be entertained, homework to be done, pies to be baked, and a home that needs constant TLC.

Spring isn't the only season it pays to have a happy and clean home. After all, we spend a lot of time indoors when the weather gets cold and the days get shorter. Dura-Shine Clean wants to make this Fall season one that's stress-free, memorable, and fulfilling. What better way than letting us handle all your cleaning needs? Our passion may be cleaning, but our motivation is the bliss of our clients! 

Want to get a head start for fall cleaning? One thing you can do right now is clean your appliances! Cleaning your appliances ensure the cleanliness of your environment but helps appliances run more efficiently, and since we're spending more time indoors, now is the time to do it! 

Cleaning your refrigerator for Fall 

It's hard to notice exactly how dirty your refrigerator can get when it's stocked with food, leftovers, and produce. But your refrigerator can get really dirty, just think about spilled juices, condiments, milk, crumbs, and leaky tupperware! Take the time to remove all the items inside your refrigerator and give it a good scrub down with antibacterial cleaners. Don't miss the condenser coils and the door gaskets if your refrigerator has theme. Cleaning these will help your refrigerator run more efficiently. Cleaning your refrigerator ensure the health and hygiene of your kitchen and your cooking. 

Your Dishwasher

You'd think that something that was made for cleaning wouldn't get so dirty, but you'd be wrong. Since we usually tend to put dirty plates inside, our dishwasher can quickly become a safe haven for filth! Not to worry, cleaning it is easy and we've got the scoop. First, remove the bottom dish rack and inspect the drain, removing any gunk or food that tends to be caught there. This usually is a preventative measure to improve efficiency and extend the life of your appliance. For cleaning the dishwasher you can use some baking soda rinse and damn sponge to wipe down the interior.

To clean thoroughly empty the dishwasher entirely, you can place a cup of white vinegar in dishwasher safe container in the upper rack of the machine and run the dishwasher through a hot water cycle, which will wash away all the grime and grease that accumulates in the corners of the dishwasher.

Cleaning your Stove for Fall Baking

Don't let the grime keep you away from the Fall baking. This Fall you should invest some time in deep cleaning your stove! Some models are self-cleaning, then it will be easier for you. You can use an oven cleaner, but a good alternative is ammonia, it works like magic. Place ammonia in a ceramic dish overnight to easily remove some of the grime that is baked on in the oven. Please be aware of children around the ammonia, and bes sure to use gloves and open kitchen windows.
