Being that I have hardwood flooring throughout my entire house, I tend to stock up on rugs. I have rugs of all types and colors. I change them out the way most people change their throw pillows. But, having so many rugs can be costly when it comes time to get them cleaned. Luckily, I have a very effective DIY professional rug cleaning method!
Each year I look forward to the warm weather that spring brings. The scent of the fresh grass and the feel of the warm breeze makes me want to curl up on the porch with a nice long book. But first, I am always compelled to make things look clean and pretty. So, some springtime porch decor is in order.
For quite some time now, images of kitchens without range hoods have been popping up all over Instagram and home decor sites. The kitchen will be done to the nines but have no ventilation in sight. Invariably, the comments begin to trend toward a debate on having versus not having a range hood. This has raised the question for many people in the midst of building or remodeling a kitchen, “Do I need to install a range hood?”
I think that we can all agree that it doesn’t matter how many improvements or renovations you do, if the house is not clean, it just feels old and well, blah. But, keeping a clean house requires diligence on my best days. Keeping a clean house when you have dogs can seem like an exercise in futility. I know, I have been there. I am STILL there. But, over the years I have found some tried and true methods to make my life easier.
