Do you have a pool? Do you have a pool guy that comes out and cleans it for you? Maybe you're thinking about building a pool, or purchasing a home with a pool. Whatever it is, don't sweat
it! Cleaning and maintaining your in-ground pool can be quick and painless, and it will save you a TON of money by doing it yourself! You can check out my step-by-step instructions at http://www.firsthomelovelife.com/2012/07/how...
What is the best way to mop a slate floor? What cleaning solution should we use? We have slate tiles in the kitchen with concrete mortar. You can see from the pictures that the surfaces
of the slate tiles are uneven. They are also porous (water dripped on them is absorbed). I sweep regularly, which isn't easy because of the uneven surfaces. I have mopped once with a Swiffer Wet Jet but I'm not sure whether that's OK to use repeatedly.
You spend 1/3 of your life with your head on your pillow, but have you ever cleaned it? You probably toss your sheets in the washing machine every week or so, but it's just as important to de-funk your pillows!
A few great tips:
- Toss two pillows in the washing machine at a time. This way, the machine will stay balanced while it spins.
- When you throw your pillows in the dryer, also
add in a couple of tennis balls wrapped in white socks. They'll help to refluff your pillows!
