This is a quick and easy way to keep your shower clean in just two minutes a day.Just get a dish washing wand and fill the dispenser half with vinegar and half with liquid dish soap. Keep
it in the shower. That way everything is ready to go. When you get in, wet the sponge, and scrub away. Next, well, take a shower. That's it. I do a little section of the shower each day and work my way around the whole area about twice a week.
If the mixture gets thick, just add a little water. Also, I would caution that it is important to rinse well, and keep out of eyes as you would any cleanser.
2 Minutes Easy

I actually tried this this morning. It took a lot of elbow grease, but I think if I do it
every day when I shower, I will see an improvement. We live in an old building and I am guessing that the mildew on the grout is actually coming from inside the walls.
This 300 sq ft cabin is on a wooded lot across from a lake in Michigan. Would you leave the warm wood paneling or would you brighten the interior up even more by going for more of a
cottage by the lake look and paint the walls a lighter color and add white beadboard? Because the wood paneling already has grooves in it that are pretty wide, do you think that would look weird with beadboard? If you suggested leaving the walls alone as you see them in these pictures, would you just go with soft, yet lighter colors for the furniture , bed coverings, etc.,?
Even though I work for a home improvement website, I am an idiot who just overloaded her dryer. It stopped. My old (I have no idea what year, but it is old) Whirlpool gas dryer stopped mid-cycle, and won't start again. What do I do? Can (how?) can I fix it myself? Should I call a repairman?

It hurts. I knew some "war tax evaders" in college...old hippies who lived near me...but I
would not do that. They earned less than $10,000/year and didn't pay taxes. Not for me.
I have a three season porch off the back of my kitchen that I'm planning on making my spring project. I'd like to add some furniture but the kind that can survive a Boston winter. The porch is enclosed with louvered windows. I'm still trying to figure out how to coexist with those. We don't even go out there in the winter since it is not insulated. Can wicker withstand a cold winter and still look nice when spring and summer come back around? I'm looking at a sofa (no cushions) on Craiglist right now.

If you can afford it (or if you can find good CL deals), teak and eucalyptus woods are both
very pretty and very weather-resistant outdoor furniture materials.
We moved into a new home and installed a pool. It was the end of the season so we had to hold off on planting. We have no idea what to do and don't want to spend a fortune but of course
we want it to look nice. Everything can be seen because of our fence. We are a corner house and need to block the view also, so when everyone drives by we don't need to wave hi!. We live in Fort Worth, Tx so the weather is nice all year long. Any suggestions on what to go with ?

I would screen off the area with shrubs or native grasses.
i know the queens hibernate indoors (attic, walls) in the winter and they try to get outside when weather warms up, but many end up in my house. I worry about my cats who try to catch these wasps getting stung. Any advice?
