While unclogging some of my gutters the other day which I'm thankful I did because water was backing up and freezing onto the wall of the house, I discovered that at least one of the ceramic drainage pipes was filled with debris from when I cleaned the gutters. I've reached as far down as I can go with my hands and arms to pull stuff out but as you can see, there is stuff I can't reach. Outside of using a drainage snake, what could I do to clean it out? We have an inch and a quarter of
rain forecast for tonight and it's going to be 60 degrees today so I hope I can get this unclogged a little better.
There's nothing worse than seeing gritty residue at the bottom of your drinking glass.
This is especially true if you have company at your house, it's the holidays, and your
wife is the one who spotted the problem. So what's the solution?
Here are a few tips that helped us with our dishwasher's efficiency
+Use a granular dishwasher soap instead of gel
+Clean sprayer arms with picture hanging wire and a white vinegar bath
+Remove grit and reside from fine and coarse filters
+Check underneath the coarse filter for grime
+Eliminate hard water scale buildup with Lemi Shine

One of our New Years resolutions is to keep our dishwasher's cleaning efficiency like it was on day 1.
If you have some tips please share them, pretty please (for the safety of husbands everywhere).
Want to clean that space in between the glass on your oven door? It's really not hard...all you need is an inexpensive tool and a few free minutes...come on over and let me show you how I cleaned mine!
Who else thinks soap scum is the enemy of all homeowners?
This past weekend I decided to put my cleaning plan into action and eliminate the haze on
my shower doors that's from soap & hard water. I used the safe combination of baking soda and white vinegar to remove the soap scum. Then I applied Rain-X to the shower door glass to prevent this from happening again, or at the very least stop me from having to clean the doors as frequently.
I wanted to share this process because it worked better than I thought it would. You can view the blog post I put together at http://www.homerepairtutor.com/clean-shower-....
If you don't do anything else you should view the video. Not only does it walk you through everything I did it shows you one crucial action I forgot to take-comb my hair before filming! But I don't mind embarrassing myself for the Hometalk community.
Another dirty little secret is being revealed today. How many times do you share with others what the inside of your oven looks like? I am going to tell our readers that I purposely let my oven glass get this dirty for the sake of this post. Yep. That's my story. And I'm sticking with it.
There are quite a few pins out there with instructions on how to clean your oven glass. They make it look and sound so easy. Right? Right. The easiest one that
I found used two ingredients. Baking Soda and water. Two ingredients to clean my glass? I was all over that and set out to test this pin.
