WEEKEND TIP: CLEANING YOUR MINI-BLINDS



Mini-blinds come in all shapes, sizes, materials, and textures. 
One thing that is common among all mini-blinds, however, is that they can be very difficult to clean. 



Both sides (top and bottom of each blind) get dirty, and each side has its own contours to worry about. Besides that, mini-blinds can be large or hard to reach, which adds to the difficulty. Finally, the blinds bend in the corner if you press too hard, which always seems to be a little easier than expected.


Fortunately, there is a very simple and quick way to clean your mini-blinds. All you have to do is slip an old sock on each of your hands. Dip one sock into warm, soapy water and rub the mini-blind between your fingers. Dry the blind with the sock on your other hand. This will solve the problems of the contours, and you can hold both sides at the same time to prevent bending. Soon you will find that the hardest part of cleaning the blinds is not the actual cleaning, but finding the socks to clean them with.

How to Keep your House Clean

How to Keep your House Clean





In everyone’s world there are lots and lots of things that need cleaning.

Household chores are a part of everyone’s life and there are times to just tidy up and times to really get down and scrub. One way you can make cleaning less time consuming and less trouble is to follow a routine every day that makes the big jobs a little less intimidating.
                                                                                                                              
Here are some quick tips on how to clean areas of the house in between your regular cleanings.

Bathroom Cleaning:
  • ·         Clean the bathroom sink with a cleaning wipe.
  • ·         Use the same wipe to clean around the tub and finish with the toilet.
  • ·         Dampen a soft rag to wipe down the mirror.
  • ·         After your shower, use a squeegee to wipe down the shower walls and glass door.


Cleaning the Bedroom:
  • ·         Make your bed
  • ·         Put away or hang up any clothing that’s lying around and put dirty clothes in the hamper.
  • ·         Put away jewelry that’s on the dresser top or night table.
  • ·         Straighten the dresser top, desk, and night table.


How to Keep the Kitchen Clean:
  • ·         Either do the dishes or fill the dishwasher, if the dishes are done put them away.
  • ·         Hang up or fold the dish towels
  • ·         Wipe out the sink
  • ·         Wipe off the top of the stove
  • ·         Wipe off the countertops
  • ·         Sweep the floor
  • ·         Wipe up any sticky spots on the floor




Living Areas:

  • ·         Pick up toys, CDs, magazines, books, and other stuff that’s just lying around.
  • ·         Clean up the sofa - put cushions where they belong and fold throws.
  • ·         Dust
  • ·         Clean up crumbs
  • ·         Wipe fingerprints off tabletops and the TV



Follow the basic list above for the dining room, the living room, the family room and whatever other living areas you have in your home.




Hall Closets and Entryways:
·         Line up shoes and boots
·         Make sure coats are hung
·         Put away clutter

Laundry:
  • In some houses, depending on whether a family is large or small, laundry may need to be done every day.
  • Family members should bring laundry to the laundry area. If they’re good at it, they should sort it into the correct piles. If not, someone who is should be responsible for this chore.
  • Pre-treat stains
  • Start a load of laundry and let it go through a cycle while you’re doing some of the jobs above.
  • When the load is done, put it in the dryer or hang or lay flat to dry those things that can’t be dried in the dryer and start another load.
  • Empty the dryer
  • Hang or fold the laundry.
  • Either put it away or have the kids pick up their own laundry and put it away.

Now, if there’s any time left, and if you have any "steam" left, pick a job off the list of larger jobs that get done once a week and do it. Maybe it’s getting rid of leftovers in the refrigerator and wiping down the shelves. Maybe it’s vacuuming or mopping. If you have kids that do work around the house to earn allowance, add some of the cleaning items listed to their chore list.

If you follow the list above and do one big job at least every couple of days, your house will be spic and span all the time and you won’t even feel like you’ve done a lot of housework. It’s all in the planning and organization.

Fire Safety And Fire Extinguishers: Know Your Fire Types




Fires are divided into five main types, depending on the nature of the fuel involved

Class A fires involve solid fuels, such as wood
Class B fires involve flammable liquids, such as petrol
Class C fires involve gas
Class D fires involve metals, such as potassium or magnesium
Class F fires involves cooking oils

Formerly there was a classification of electrical fires, but since electricity itself is a cause of fire, not a fuel in itself, these types of fires have been incorporated into the main classes. If you think about it, once you have removed the electricity - i.e. turned the power off or it fuses itself - the fire becomes a normal fire. Some extinguishers are labelled as safe for use on fires involving electrical equipment.

Why You Need Experts to Clean Your Facade


Clean building simply looks more aesthetically pleasing than a dirty one. It looks best when it is free of grime, dust and other pollutants staining its facade. The facade is what your clients see when they enter your bulldog premises for the first time, and first impressions can be long lasting, hence maintaining it becomes all the more important. Facade of commercial buildings and towers needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. But, cleaning a facade is not an easy job in itself and only professionals should be hired for the job because of the complexities involved. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons as to why facade cleaning should be best left to professionals.

Removing the Smell of Cigarette Smoke in the Car


If you’ve got a smoker in your car, you might just have a nasty odor in your car.

Cigarette smoke is one of the most pervasive odors you can encounter and it can be tough to get rid of once it’s soaked into the upholstery of a car.

So many people have had the unfortunate experience of buying a used car; complete with new car smell, only to find after a few weeks’ time that the real scent of their car is used ashtray. Even if you are a smoker, you don’t really want your car to smell bad and there are great ways to prevent the odor from sinking in and taking hold inside the car.

Your attack on the odor will be three-fold. You have to remove the smell, improve the scent of the car and prevent it from coming back. If you allow someone to smoke in your car, you should take the following steps to keep the odor from sticking around.


Removing the Smell: 
Empty the ashtray of cigarette butts and ashes at the end of each day. The stale tobacco odor can be largely prevented if you keep the ashtray clean and empty. Just having a pack of cigarettes sitting in the car, especially if it’s a hot day, can make your car stinky in no time.
Keep the windows open or cracked as much as possible if you are smoking in the car. The smoke will go out the window instead of getting trapped in the car.
Use an odor control air freshener. There are products designed to eliminate odors rather than just mask them. Make this part of your process when cleaning and deodorizing your car.

Clean the Car:
Then there is vacuuming and cleaning the interior of the car. Smoke smell is so prevalent that this is really something that should be done weekly. If you can't manage weekly, get to this as often as possible and occasionally spring for getting your car detailed.

If smoking isn’t allowed in your car, but you are stuck with the lingering odor of cigarette smoke and ashes, you can take a more direct and complete approach.

Start with the floor mats. Remove the mats and shampoo them as best you can. Any upholstered surface in your vehicle is going to be a magnet for odors; smoke and otherwise. Get the mats as clean as you can and leave them outside to dry while you work your way through the car.

Hit the seats hard:
 Use the best upholstery cleaner you can find for your seats. Take your time and do a thorough job, because most of the trapped odors in the car are emanating from the seats. If you can do this job on a day when you can leave the car open and get a breeze going, the job will go much better and the results will be much better smelling.
If you have a vinyl or leather interior, use appropriate cleaners for the type you have.
Not only do you want to clean the seats but give the door paneling, dashboard, gear shift, etc. a good cleaning too.

Vacuum everything:
There may be ashes trapped in all kinds of places in your car. Thoroughly vacuum every part of the car-getting into the tightest spots and removing anything that might contribute to the odor in your car.
Leave the car open for as long as you can. If you can have the car covered from the elements and safe, like in a garage be sure to keep the doors and windows open whenever you can. This will naturally aerate the vehicle and help dissipate any residual odors.



The Air:
Once you’ve tackled the odor the best you can, it’s time to freshen the air in your car so you can mask any small odor that might be left after all your hard work. Smoke odors are hard to get rid of, but not impossible. If there is any stink left, or if you are still smoking in the car, you can try some of these remedies:

  • Hang an air freshener. Rear view mirror ornaments have come a long way and are available in a ton of scents.

  • Spray air fresheners and odor removers onto the seats and carpet. (check to make sure it won't damage the material first).

  • You can also purchase air fresheners that fit in the air ducts of your car.

  • With some elbow grease and a little persistence, you can fully eliminate lingering cigarette smoke odors from your car.
