Like a lot of you, my kitchen is full of stainless steel appliances. I love the sleek, modern, look that they bring to a space, but I hate the endless supply of fingerprints and smudges that they collect. None of my appliances have the new fingerprint proof finish. I am still living with the old generation of stainless steel, and considering the cost of my appliances, I imagine it will be a long time before I acquire that luxury. Fortunately, these how to clean stainless steel methods have made life with my appliances bearable.
I know that there are a lot of “shower only” people out there, but I personally love my air tub. However, one thing that I don’t love is the potential for mold, mildew and dangerous bacteria to build up in the lines. Also, there is a big gross factor for me, if I feel that a tub isn’t sanitized. If you don’t stay on top of things, a jetted or air tub can get out of hand very quickly. (FYI – I am a super germaphobe). Therefore, I am sharing how to clean and disinfect jetted whirlpool tubs.
Recently, I was searching through Pinterest looking for some good pins to add to my flooring board. (BTW – I highly recommend following me). 😉 What I noticed were so very many articles on cleaning wood floors that were offering some very wrong advice. Now, I don’t claim to be a professional flooring installer, but I know my way around wood, and I have done my fair share of flooring installs and repairs. So, I just wanted to offer my two cents on how to care for wood floors, and what you should not do.
I don’t know about you, but my mattress and my bedding are two things that I am diligent about preserving. I want them to have as long a life as possible. Partly, because mattresses are so expensive and partly because a good set of sheets are so hard to find. (Or maybe that is just me. I admit that I am particular about how my sheets feel). So, I sat down and compiled a list of the things that you can do to extend the life of your bedding.

Back when the front load washers were just first coming out on the market, I was so thrilled to be getting a new set. I had dreamed of the day when I no longer needed to make a trip to the laundry mat or to use the cleaners for my larger items. Then, the day came and I gladly handed over the cash for my two new beauties. Little did I know, at the time, that I was about to embark upon one of the most challenging household problems that I had yet to encounter – the dreaded front loader stink!
