The best way to deep clean your shower

April 8th, 2018|CLEAN|

Yes, hire someone else and rebuild your entire shower from scratch.  Failing the whopping budget for that, the easiest and best way I’ve found to deep clean your shower is to use the HomeRight SteamMachine.

The easiest way to clean window tracks (chemical free)

March 30th, 2018|CLEAN|

It’s SPRING!
At least the calendar says it should be Spring even if the weather isn’t totally Spring-like, which means it’s time to get to work on all of those areas of the home where dirt and crud have built up all winter long…  like window tracks.

Mine are disgusting – beyond the normal black crud that tends to accumulate – I’ve actually managed to cultivate some quarter-sized, hairy balls of mould in my window tracks as well.  No one wants quarter-sized […]

Spring Cleaning – cleaning blinds

February 27th, 2018|CLEAN|

I wrote a post about cleaning blinds a couple/few years ago, and I believe it’s been that long since I’ve done them – how embarrassing!

There are a few chores around the home that I really dislike doing: cleaning my shower, cleaning the oven and cleaning my blinds.  Give me toilets and stairs over these anytime!  I find cleaning my shower to be so incredibly labour-intensive and it takes at least an hour to do a decent job.  Cleaning the oven […]

How to keep an area rug from moving around

February 20th, 2018|CLEAN, DECOR|

Have you fallen in with the trend of adding an area rug over carpeting?  It’s sharp – I admit I love the look – but what do you do when your area rug won’t stop bunching and wrinkling?  How do you keep an area rug from moving around?

Organizing the Linen Closet

January 29th, 2018|CLEAN, ORGANIZE|

Have I ever told you how susceptible I am to marketing?

It’s true, when I was in University there was an infomercial for “Breast enlargement cream” (that was waaaaay back when I stayed up past 8pm).  At that time, women aspired to Pamela Anderson’s chest size in the same way women now want a Kardashian butt.  My nickname in highschool was “two-by-four” because of my un-Pamela-like chest size, so clearly I needed/bought the miracle cream.

Didn’t work of course.  Neither did the […]

How to clean cutlery scuffs off of dishes

December 17th, 2017|CLEAN|

Are you working your way through your “100 Things 2 Do Before the Holidays” checklist?

I am, and while I’m not quite as prepared as I’d like to be, I have crossed off items each day – and who doesn’t love crossing things off of a checklist?

One item that wasn’t on my checklist specifically, but is a task I do once a year before Holiday guests see my ugly dishes (sorry guests during the rest of the year) is to […]

Choosing a kitchen faucet – go hands-free!

October 31st, 2017|CLEAN, DECOR|

I received the Pfister Raya faucet in exchange for providing a review to my readers.

I’ve mentioned before that we built our house back in 2005 and, as with any build, costs were a constant concern so we opted for “builder’s grade” on a few essentials, like faucets, because we knew we could upgrade down the road.

One of our budget-buys was this little kitchen faucet.

Fall Yardwork Checklist- prep now for gorgeous results in Spring

October 7th, 2017|CLEAN, DIY|

Have the leaves started coming down where you live?  I’ve heard that certain parts of Canada have seen their first snow already, so I know that it’s just a matter of time before the deluge begins.

As it stands, we’ve already started round 1 of our Fall yardwork with the pine needles that have dropped from the giant evergreens behind our house.

What is Swirl Remover?

August 20th, 2017|CLEAN|

This post came about in a round about way – typical for how my brain works – so hang on…

We’ve been away at the cottage this past week and when I come home from any vacation anywhere I feel “dirty”.  I’m actually clean, I’ve showered and we had laundry facilities, but the feeling sticks with me so on returning home from anywhere I do a mass of laundry, facial mask, hair mask, shaved legs – the works.

While unpacking the car […]

How to Unclog a Toilet (without a plunger)

May 16th, 2017|CLEAN|

I need to show you a self-portrait:

At least two days a week this is how I feel – and the remaining 5 days a week, this is Hubby.

Is it possible that our pipes are shrinking?  That they are so full of hair and crud and gunk that anything that goes down the toilet now causes it to clog?

I don’t even want to think about what might or might not be wrong […]
