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.
One of life’s simple pleasures is a lovely scented linen spray. If you have never used one, you really should give it a try. It is a great way to refreshen your sheets midweek. It also makes a great spritz when ironing your laundry. I like to have different scents for different needs – one for everyday spritzing of my sheets, one for the rest of the house, one for ironing, and an eucalyptus scent for when I get sick. If you’re interested in learning how to make linen spray, then keep reading.
Don’t you just love it when you pull out clean linens and they still have that fresh from the dryer scent? I know I do. However, unless you launder your things each and every week, they lose that freshness. That’s why I love to use drawer sachets to maintain that smell. Of course, investing in that many sachets can become an expensive luxury. That is, unless you make them yourself! So, today I am sharing with you my method for how to DIY drawer sachets. It is quick and super easy. I have two different methods. Method one, I use for my linens. Method two I use to make custom scents for my intimate drawers.
How To Adjust Washing Machine Water Levels – One of my biggest frustrations of late has been my new front load washing machine. I recently bought a whole new set, shiny and pretty to look at, with all of its futuristic buttons that light up and make Close Encounters of the Third Kind music. I guess they have to add all that new fandagled stuff to keep you from paying attention to the fact that you will no longer be getting clean laundry. Can I please have my 1990s machine back, now?
