3 Tips for Stain Removal


1 Know What Caused the Stain

Knowing what caused the stain can really help you get the right cleaning solution to help remove the stain. Knowing if it’s an oil-based substance or water based can really be handy.

2 Don’t Always Wipe the Stain with Water

If the stain is oil based avoid rinsing it under cold water. Oil repels water, so any water that comes into contact with the stain could contribute to setting the stain deeper into the clothing. If the stains come from a non-oily source, then usually the first thing to do is dab off any excess and then rinse it in cold water. If you hold the garment under the tap so that the water is hitting the back of stain, it can help to flush out the stain from behind.

Tips For Loading The Dishwasher


What not to put in the dishwasher

  • wooden utensils
  • reactive or non-dishwasher safe plastics
  • iron or bronze (they can tarnish or corrode)
  • Hand wash cutting knives (blades can get dull from the dishwasher)
  • Hand wash any delicate glass or stem wear

Don’t pre-rinse items but scape off any large food particles and don’t overcrowd the dishwasher as this makes cleaning harder.

Plates go in the lower rack facing the center for the rack for the best wash. Make sure to have larger items like frying pans and baking sheets around the outside of the rack then large plates then small plates working your way into the middle of the lower rack.

Cups should always be on the upper rack with larger glasses to the outside and small mugs in the middle going between the times or spokes on the rack. Make sure cups are not laying on top of each other so vibrating of dishwasher does not crack, chip or break them.

Smaller bowels go on the top rack as well at...

I know it sounds crazy but house cleaning can be fun if you put yourself in the right mindset. Over the last several months there has been a movement to think of cleaning not as cleaning but as fitness for better health. Think of how much walking and lifting you do by the time you get laundry, wash it, fold it and put it away.

I have recently heard of people wearing a Fitbit while cleaning. A Fitbit is a wristband that you can buy for under $50 dollars and it keeps track of your steps. Many people are now using household chores as there daily exercise. Think of how many steps you must do vacuuming, mopping and sweeping.

So the next time you complain about cleaning the house think of all the exercise you are getting because you are a cle...

Clorox ToiletWand Disposable Toilet Cleaning System Review


No one is a fan of cleaning the toilet it’s a gross nasty job and no one wants to do it regularly. The toilet in most homes never gets cleaned unless people are invited over and they might use it. The toilet if not cleaned regularly gets really hard to clean.

A Dirty Office Can Make You Lose A Client or Customer


Do you invite clients to your office? Do you take pride in your appearance? Do you take pride in your office?

Most salesmen take pride in their look they clean shave, wear a suit and carry a briefcase with a well-organized presentation but do you ever think about the presentation of your office. We take our suites, ties, and slacks to be cleaned by professionals but do we clean our offices professionally?

Nothing could kill a sale worse than a dirty office. A dirty office tells a client in not so many words that your not clean and organized about your space so now the client may think “Is he this messy with this work?"

Maybe your office is clean but what about the bathroom? If a client asks to use the restroom and it’s too d...
