Tips to keeping your carpet clean!

Have carpet in your rental? Here are some simple tips to helping you keep it clean!

  1. Make a ‘no shoe’ rule! Although you may feel a little awkward or weird asking people to remove their shoes, it’s actually becoming more of a common practice. Shoes track in dirt, germs, toxins, and harmful bacteria. You don’t know where people have been but their shoes have and it tracks all that into your home. Having a ‘no shoe’ home protects your family from those dirt and germs and it reduces the wear and tear of the carpet.
  2. Treat spills immediately! Spill something on the carpet? Stop everything and clean it up! Leaving a spill will make it harder to clean up. Treating it right away will help get it out better, faster, and easier because it doesn’t give it time to set in.
  3. Vacuum often and well! Even when you follow the tricks above your carpets are still going to get dirtier faster. Pollen and dust come indoors clinging to us or our pets, through open windows, and every time our doors open or close. That’s why carpets need to be vacuumed wall-to-wall at least twice a week with a third pass over high-traffic areas. It’s important to use the crevice attachment around the base of walls and furniture, too, since dust and pet hair often collect there.

Hopefully these tips will help you keep your carpets clean! Keeping your carpets cleans makes the home feel and look nicer. Keeps you and your family safe from different germs and bacteria!

Trick or Treat Safety Tips!

Halloween is coming! Trick or Treating is just around the corner. Trick or Treating is fun and a great time for all ages but we also need to remember to be safe! Here are some tips for Halloween night to keep you and your kiddos safe!

  1. The Perfect Fit! Make sure that the costume fits your kids! Having the right sized costume is really important. It will make easy for the kids to move and they won’t be tripping over the costume.

  3. Make it bright! Try picking/convincing your kids to pick costume that aren’t dark colors. Having dark colors makes it harder to see the kids. If you can have lighter colors it will help people be able to see your kids. If you can try even giving your kids glow sticks to wear while they are trick or treating.
  4. Groups, groups are good! Go in groups. If you can find other families you can go with. If your kids are older and want to go with friends make sure they stay in groups.
  5. Choose wisely and follow the rules! Choose houses that look good. A lot of them will be decorated creepy but you can tell the difference between a creepy house and a fake creepy house. You don’t have to hit every single house. If a house doesn’t seem right then don’t go to it. Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t mean that the rules of the road don’t apply! Following the rules of the road! It will help keep you and your kiddos safe.
  6. Check it before you eat it! When you get home be sure to check all the candy! Look to make sure that the candy hasn’t been messed with and hasn’t been opened. If there is any homemade treats throw them out! If you know the person who gave the homemade treats and you trust them then its okay but if you don’t know the person or where they came from then THROW IT OUT! It’s unsafe to eat messed with/opened candy or homemade treats. Also if your kids have an allergy to any kind of candy make sure to take those out before you let them go at it.
  7. Drive Carefully! If you are going to be driving around on Halloween night be wary of those little kids. Take it slow and keep your eyes open. Little kids tend to run in the streets and appear out of no where. Be sure to keep you eyes open and pay attention to the things going on around you. Be on alert! Be careful!

Hopefully these tips will help you keep you and your kids safe! Be safe and happy trick or treating!

Electrical and Appliance Safety.

  • Frayed wires can cause fires. Replace all worn, old or damaged appliance cords immediately and do not run cords under rungs or furniture.
  • If an appliance has tree-prong plug, use it only in a three-slot outlet. Never force it to fit into a two-slot outlet or extension cord.
  • Immediately shut off, then professionally replace, light switches that are hot to the touch and lights that flicker.

Fireplace and Woodstoves.

  • Inspect and clean woodstove pipes and chimneys annually and check monthly for damage or obstructions.
  • use a fireplace screen heavy enough to stop rolling logs and big enough to cover the entire opening of the fireplace to catch flying sparks.
  • Make sure the first is completely out before leaving the house or going to bed.

Organizing your closet!

Looking to revamp your closet? Or it’s a mess and you need to make it better and easier to use? Today we have tips that will help your organize your closet.

First things first, do you have clothes that you have not worn in a year? Well get rid of them. The best first step to organizing your closet is to pare down your clothes, making sure that you are only keeping clothes that you do wear and use. Paring down your clothes and getting rid of those clothes will give you more space in your closet and help make it look just a little less messy.

If you cannot figure out what clothes you do and don’t not use, turn the hangers. Turn the hangers so they are backwards and then once you have used the item of clothing put it back the normal way. After a while you’ll see what clothes you do wear and clothes that you do not. This will help you decided quicker which clothes are important to your style and which you do not use that much or at all.

The next thing you could do is put shelves. Buy a bookshelf whether it is big or small and add it into the closet. This will give space for clothes that do not need to be hung up or even just some shoes or extra things that you keep in the closet. Having these shelves will keep stuff from cluttering the floor of the closet and make it more spacious or at least look more spacious.

The last tip for today is to stagger your shoes. If you put the shoes the same direction as its pair it takes up space. If you stagger the shoes it will help make more room. It keeps the shoes closer together which makes it so you can fit more shoes or more of something else. It gives more space to closets that do not have much and closet that do.

Hopefully these tips will help get your closet organized and looking pretty! Good luck and happy organizing!

Organizing your kitchen pantry!

Feel like your kitchen pantry is a little cluttered? Well here are a couple of ideas that may help you declutter your kitchen pantry.

One idea that could help your pantry look a little nicer is to buy jars to put ingredients in. Instead of having the different assortments of cereal boxes, flour bags, sugar bags, and candy bags, you could have cute labeled jars of different foods. Having the same type of jar with different items in them will look better than having different colored and sized boxes whose colors don’t really match. Getting jars that match each other whether they are a certain color or clear will help give a more organized and sophisticated look to your pantry.

One thing to add to the first idea is using baskets. Some products can’t really be taken out of their original packaging and put into jars. If this happens find some baskets that look similar to the jars or just match the jars. They don’t have to be the same brand as long as they match each other. Having all the products put into jars or baskets will help give the pantry one unique or a few unique colors and that makes the pantry look 10 times better than having a bunch of random unorganized colors.

Remember to label everything! If you don’t label everything it will be hard to find the ingredients you need. Especially with the jars of food. You don’t want to accidentally use salt when you need sugar!

Hopefully these ideas will help you organize your kitchen pantry a little more. Have a fun time organizing!

Making a house a home!

Is your rental not feeling homey enough for you? Well here are some tips to help you make your house a home!

The first idea that will help make your house a home would be to put up pictures of your family and friends. Have a picture of your favorite vacation with your family? Then get a frame, print off the picture and put it up somewhere in the house. Having these memoires up will bring some fun times back to memory and make your house feel homier.

The next idea would be to try putting some greenery around the house. Find some plants you like and put it somewhere in your home. Can’t keep a plant alive? Don’t worry that’s why someone decided to make fake plants so those of us who don’t have a green thumb could have some green in our home.

Thirdly, cushions. Add cushions around the house. Add them to your bed pile them high. Having cushions can help improve the look of your room and make you feel at home. You can also add cushions to your couch this will help make the living room feel a little more comfortable. You can add a throw blanket too. It can also just add a little color to the room. 

  Fourth, Add some color! Add a new rug or put some flowers in a vase. Having some color added to the house will help give it a little more spunk which will help it feel more comfortable and fun.

Lastly, make some memories! Have some friends over for a dinner or movie night. Making memories in the house will help turn it into a home. Having some memories in the house will help you have good feelings and memories to look back on.

We hope these tips help you make your house into a home!
