Give your vacuum a tune up

Summer time is a great time to give your vacuum some TLC. Whether it is a canister, upright, bagless, or bagged. Keeping your vacuum well maintained will provide maximum suction power and efficiency. Every month, change disposable bags, wipe the inside and bottom of the machine, and clean out the rotating brush, removing hair, carpet fibers, etc.

Clean Your Microwave with a Lemon

There is nothing worse than your son using the microwave to re-heat a slice of last night’s anchovy pizza. Slice lemon into a bowl of water and put it in the microwave on high for 3-minutes. Let it sit in the microwave for another 3-minutes and then simply wipe the inside clean. Another trick for quickly getting rid of odor: Place a bowl of white vinegar inside the microwave and keep the door shut for one hour.
