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.

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.
