It can get really cold in New Mexico during January and February. And that is good, because everyone can enjoy lots of winter activities along with hot springs, saunas, jacuzzis… the best of both worlds.

Santa Fe is a city to visit at any time of the year. Many choose to come during the beginning of the year and select rental properties specifically with kiva fireplaces, a southwestern staple that somehow allows them to feel at home even when far away from home.

Many of the activities those visitors come to Santa Fe for during winter include, skiing, in the slopes north or south of the city. Other choose snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, which can also be done in the neighboring Sangre de Cristo mountains. Photography lovers, whether professionals or aficionados also come to Santa Fe to take the most breathtaking pictures of sunsets and sunrises, while the snow is untouched, and the first rays of light.

Other visitors and residents choose to go to museums and art galleries, witnessing first hand the hard work of artists from all backgrounds and areas of the world. But all of these people have something in common: they all wanna get back home to a warm setting, and thankfully for those staying at some rental homes in Santa Fe, the team of Ana Valenzuela Home Cleaning Services has everything ready, clean and welcoming for them.


Clean and fresh towels are a must on any rental home. It’s the little details that make all the difference! Using a soft towel that caresses the skin could be the ultimate luxury you never knew you wanted. And Ana Valenzuela’s team of professionals know how to keep all towels in perfect shape, with the colors intact and an incredible softness.

Here are some tricks of the trade from these cleaning professionals:

  1. For maintenance, don’t use soap: Yes, normally towels are washed with laundry detergent. However, for maintenance, it’s good to periodically give them a spin on the washer machine with water and a cup of white vinegar. That’s it. No detergent. Run the wash like you normally would. Then, run a second wash, this time around with a cup of baking soda. Make sure the water is the hottest your machine allows. Finish the cycle and dry normally.
  2. Wash towels on their own: Run a separate load for towels and divide them by colors. Also, when washing or drying towels, make sure to do it in small amounts, so there is adequate and enough water and air to flow around and do what they are supposed to.
  3. Use softener, but not always: Softener does its job, definitely. But it also creates a lot of build up. So it’s ideal to use it sparingly, perhaps every 2 to 3 washes.
  4. Shake them before storing: Once the drying cycle is done, take towels out immediately. Give them a good shake, fold and store in a space that is not too crowded.
