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.
Well, one more summer has come to an end, and a wonderful Fall seems to be just around the corner. I love the crisp, cool weather. I love being able to pull out my Fall wardrobe – chucking the flip flops for my socks and booties. There are only a few issues with Fall that I dread… ragweed pollen and Fall cleaning. My goal each year is to complete each item on my Ultimate Fall Cleaning Checklist Printable before the ragweed pollen season ends. (My sinuses let me know if I have succeeded) 😉
If you have kids or pets, then you know that they can try the patience of a saint with all their messes. Before buying one of these babies, I spent countless hours searching for the best way to remove stains, spills, and puppy accidents from my beautiful rugs. And folks, I promise you that nothing, absolutely nothing will ever replace my SpotBot. They will have to pry it out of my cold dead hands. 😉

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!
Well, it’s Spring time again. Yes! I love Spring and always look forward to the end of Winter. However, with the wonderful weather comes the dreaded Spring cleaning list. Fortunately, the warm temperatures helps to put people in the mood to tackle those neglected areas of the home. To make things easier, I am including part of my Spring cleaning list to help you get started.
