How to get your household chores complete in time for Christmas.
Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but if the celebrations are at your house, it’s probably going to be the most stressful. There are decorations to hang, presents to buy, parties to attend, work to finish, food to prepare, and gifts to wrap—not to mention the cleaning to do! (more…)
You may have heard these just once and hold them to be true. Or they may have been passed down to you from your family that you have never questioned. We probably all believe at least one of these cleaning myths, which is why it is about time these were busted and the truth set free.
In part 1 of the cleaning with pets series, we covered some very handy ways to prevent your pets’ mess from taking over your home. In part 2 we cover how to best clean up after they have made their mess, so that you spend as little time and effort to keep your home looking good.
Vinegar – such a humble, simple little acidic substance that has had a huge resurgence as a miracle solution in recent years, with everything from medical to agricultural usage benefiting from a little vinegar.

If your dishwasher has been developing an unpleasant smell or if doesn’t seem to be cleaning as effectively any more, it might benefit from a clean of its own!
