For starters, there are many types of organizer like shoe organizer, accessories organizer, bags organizers, etc. that you can choose from. This can get your friend started in being a little less messy by put things into their place.

Tips before buying: it would be better to look for a space saver organizer for your friend who does not have enough space in their home and avoid gifting them with an organizer that is hard to assemble.

__Set of kitchen towels __

Gifting a friend with a set of kitchen towels is a good idea. Named as one of the most powerful kitchen tools with many uses aside from drying the dishes, and use in cooking, it can be used all around the kitchen for general clean up. A truly versatile one.

Tip before buying: see to it that the kitchen towel is durable and absorbent. And avoid buying one with the linen fabric and go for the one with a cotton fabric which is more absorbent and durable. Make sure to look for one which does not leave lint on surfaces.

__Key Holder __

This might be considered a type of organizer but just want to specify this item for a certain reason. It is not solely for a messy person but also for the forgetful ones. Just remind your friend to not forget where the key holder is located. What's great about this as a gift is that you can have it customized at a low-cost.

Tips before buying: If you are looking for someone who does customize key holder, you can try Artisan Mom. Their products are high quality but certainly cheaper than others.

The advantages of gifting cordless vacuum cleaner are that you will not be restricted by the cord while cleaning and have no cable clutter to worry about.

__Microfiber Rags __

But most of us do not know the power of microfiber rags, which contains millions of microfiber (acts like a big toothbrush) that helps, dislodge dust dirt and bacteria more effectively than the regular rags we buy thus making it easier for us to make our houses squeaky clean without using strong detergents that is costly and pollutes our environment.

What's great about this is that they can use it not only on floors but on tiles, walls, and ceilings too and after using it, they can just throw the head of the mop into the washing machine and voila, it's clean again and ready to use. You can also give your friend a tip like placing a quarter in the bottom of the bucket. When they can no longer see the quarter, it's time to change the water.

Tips before buying: choose the one with microfiber fabric for efficient cleaning and less detergent use.

Mattress Cleaning

Roll to the left! Roll to the right!

This, not a military drill. It's what you do while you're asleep. But isn't it a pet peeve if you discover that aside from getting a good night sleep, you are also getting the viruses and bacteria that are present in your dirty mattress?. Yes! That's right! Your very own mattress, ladies and gentlemen.

That's why it is important to clean/shampoo your mattress at least twice a year or quarterly to make sure that the bed where you rest is clean.

By thinking that you only replace your mattress from five to ten years, the benefits you can get from cleaning your mattress is also enormous is as it helps eliminate bacteria and viruses like E. Coli and Staphylococcus/ Streptococcus that you can get from the dirty mattress resulting to skin allergies or nasal allergies like rhinitis and pimples especially on your back.

Cleaning the mattress can reduce unwanted stains from the mattress like seminal stain, blood spills (like menstrual fluid), sweat (which sums up to about 26 gallons per year), skin cells because dust mites feed off excess skin shed which we do while sleeping and accident spills.

Secondly, make certain that you change bed sheets and pillowcase once a week to make sure that the dirt and bacteria from your clothes or body will not seep through the mattress and avoid getting it damp as it can lead to accumulation bugs/ fungi making your mattress their home and of other bacteria.

We clean in the following areas: Makati, BGC, Taguig, Mandaluyong, Ortigas, Pasay, Parañaque and more!

We look forward to cleaning your condo/house/office for you!

Life of living in a Metropolitan area is equally smooth and thorny. And let me tell you the reasons why:

Metro Manila is an amazing place to live in because of two main things, good food, and good places.

First is good food. No one can deny the fact that the diversity of the good food from fine dining to street foods, are all around Manila and most of them are open 24/7! Hello, Tapa King!

You can never run out of new food to eat even if you live here your whole life because of the numerous amount of food that Manila has to offer.


Next reason is different areas livable for the modern crowd. Well, it depends on what type of home you are looking for, but let me tell you that no matter what kind of space it is, be it a condominium or townhouse, especially near malls (which is amazing if you love shopping) Metro Manila has got you covered.

Makati and Ortigas is the best location for busy working individuals who want to avoid the long commute to work. Both areas boast impressive skyscrapers, giant malls, and active nightlife.

Quezon City & Parañaque, north and south are great places for families that crave for bigger spaces and greens.

Pasay and Manila has rich history and character!

However, aside from these pros, living in Metro Manila also its disadvantages. Being in this busy city can be strenuous especially because of the heavy traffic that is unavoidable.

Every so often even after arriving at our safe have, it can feel stressful too when you see the chores waiting to be done when you're already tired from work!

Finding a maid is just like the icing on the top of a disastrous cupcake because finding a yaya or a house helper is very difficult nowadays for the reason that the standard of cleanliness that you require is not met by the house cleaner that you hired or because of trust issues since you leave most of your valuables at home.

That’s why many homeowners these days prefer hiring janitorial/cleaning services from companies like Manila Maid instead of looking for stay-in house help. Because the cleaners’ from these companies are well trained and can keep the house clean in a small amount of time. Plus, they always do an amazing job and with a competitive price based on the size of your home.

This lessens the struggle of the homeowners in terms of finding the right maid, and the worries of entrusting their house to someone they don’t know because even though you hire people from cleaning companies, you do not really hire the person, but the company. And you trust the company because the behavior of their employees is their responsibility.

So you should really scratch that "hire a live-in maid“ from your never-ending to do list and write something like "Call Manila Maid to schedule cleaning” instead.
