Aren’t you sick and tired of watching commercials where women are casually walking down the street with a laundry detergent ready to flash at random strangers? Why do cleaning product companies try so hard? When I started to think about this a few years ago, I realised it is actually so easy to make your own solutions, that commercial companies feel you need to constantly be reminded that yours are no good, and unless you buy Domestos, Ariel and Ciff for instance, you will never make it in the war against grime, bacteria and dust. But consider the following ways in which these cleaning agents actually do more harm than good. More…
If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you should already know that I hate cleaning. Maybe a little less now, than in the beginning, but I still quite dislike it, especially on a lazy Sunday. Anyway, ever since I discovered the disposable cleaning wet wipes, I was reborn. More…
Light is important and when it comes to decorating the table for the holidays, doubly so! Here is a romantic and adorable idea perfect for the holidays and every other occasion where you would want to add ambience and charm to your table and dining room. This project is extremely easy and even people who are new to DIY would manage it.
With so many holidays these days and Christmas just around the corner it is a good idea to be prepared for wax stains on the tablecloth. My husband and I love to light candles when we dine together, even if its just an ordinary evening. It just makes it so much more special and cosy. When you have a candle lit dinner, however, by accident, someone knocks the candle down, the melted wax spills and you have a horrible stain on your tablecloth. It probably looks bad, but there is no need to take it to the dry cleaner. You can manage to remove the stain if you follow these simple steps.
A lot of people like to have a rest on the sofa and have a snack in the same time, or sometimes your kids sit and play on it with muddy shoes. Stuff like that cause some really tough upholstery stains. They probably look quite horrible and are tough to clean. Well, that is not such a big problem. Here are some tips how to deal with upholstery stains.
For the longest time I felt like rinsing down the food leftovers and forgetting about their existence is like the most normal thing in the world. Not long after I saw why it actually shows a lack of responsibility. Firstly not all things can smoothly go down the drain and even if they do, not all are biodegradable. Some are causing nothing but pollution, while other are causing clogged drains! Follow the tips below and you’ll be fine. More…
I am not a great fan of cleaning, as most of you already know, but one chore I loathe in particular, and that would be cleaning the fridge. I mean, you have to take out all the food and then take the shelves, wash them up, put them back and rearrange all the food back. The shelves and the corners of the fridge are awkward to wash as well, and it seems that the typical fridge odor comes back sooner than expected. Well, here are a few tips that might help you – most of them I am sharing from experience!
As the name of this blog suggests, I hate cleaning, however I had to clean once I got married, so I discovered a few benefits of cleaning, I wasn’t aware of before. Since then, I started to like it a lot more. Without further adieu, here is what I found about cleaning during the first year of my marriage.
Stephen and I decided when we got married that we won’t have any pets until our children are a bit older. The reason for this is that we want to learn how to be a good spouses to each other, then learn how to be good parents. If we get a dog before we have a baby, I will feel like I am putting my child at a risk and I won’t feel at ease to give the pet away either. So why am I writing about cleaning pet messes? Funny story!
