There's always so much to do in the house – from keeping dust bunnies away to preparing snacks for the kids. Here are some time-saving tips and tricks from the cleaning services experts at MOLLY MAID. It's all about getting chores done so you can do the things you really want to do, like spending time with family and friends.  

Cleaning Strawberries?  Remove the tops of strawberries by inserting a straw through the bottom and out the top – the leaves will come right off in the top of the straw.

Cutting up an apple for your child's lunch?  To keep it from turning brown, hold the apple together with an elastic band – less cut surface exposure will keep an apple fresher for longer.

Looking for a fun and delicious way to serve fruit?  Bake cookie 'bowls' for fruit by turning your muffin tin upside down and wrapping the cookie dough over the top. Bake as per the recipe directions. Let cool and remove carefully. These cookie bowls are perfect for ice cream too!
