Cleaning Without Breaking the Bank

As I sat around the house today after spending most of the morning cleaning up after the family, I got to thinking about how we clean. Today, we have so many options to choose from when we peruse a website or a store for cleaning supplies. There are products for just about every single job and every little cleaning task seems to require a different cleaner to get the job done right.

When I realized what the implications of this simple fact were, I comprehended just what it could do to a pocketbook in short order. This little bit of information had me longing for yesteryear when things were simpler. With the economy continuing to struggle in the middle of a slump, the last thing I usually have money for is cleaning supplies. In fact, most of the time, there isn’t money for a lot of other things either.

This is resounded in countless of American homes in a time when unemployment is rising and gaining new means of income is getting harder by the hour. Yet, we all want our homes to be clean and to reflect at least some semblance of normalcy when nothing else is stable in the world around us. How to combat the cost of living and cleaning when incomes don’t match what they once were is of utmost importance.

Therefore, instead of continuing the series I have planned on green living, I decided to take today to give some tips on how to clean economically while managing a budget as well. Some of these ideas are tried and tested by generations long gone and others are ideas I have used or that my neighbors have been kind enough to share with me.

I’ve mentioned and many readers have suggested the wonderful properties household white vinegar holds in the realm of cleaning. This is truly a standby from the past that works as well or better than commercial brands.

Plants are the best (and one of the cheapest) air fresheners around. Not only do they lend a subtle scent to the room, they also clean the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off oxygen for us to breathe.

Vanilla isn’t just a great spice to cook with in the kitchen. I love to place shallow dishes of vanilla under the couch and in one corner of the room out of the way to lend a touch of old fashioned charm to my home.

Club soda is great for removing stains from carpets and curtains. It’s gentle and very inexpensive to use. Just rub it into the spot and blot dry. While it won’t work on really set in stains, it’s a lifesaver for fresh ones.

Baking soda
set about in the refrigerator and sprinkled on cat litter boxes can do wonders for the scent of those areas. It absorbs odor and neutralizes them so no unpleasant smells linger. I also sprinkle my trash cans with this.

Salt and lemon juice make a great scouring compound that not only smells good but removes a lot of grime easily. Just use gloves as the acidic juice can be murder on the hands. Also, salt will sting any cut, no matter how small.

Newspapers make great window rags and clean stainless steel well too. The shine left behind won’t show signs of lint as some other paper products will and it gives another use to the stack of papers that lay around after reading the news.

Old t-shirts too stained or torn for wear are wonderful cloths to use for dusting. They won’t leave lint behind and they won’t scratch delicate surfaces.

Those unmated socks also have other uses. I love to use them as wash mitts for the dishes. I just turn them inside out and wash as I would with any other cloth.

If your looking to keep the heat or the cold inside your house, you can use old socks filled with rice. These effectively keep drafts from entering or escaping areas you don’t want them in. These also double as great heating pads when warmed in the microwave and placed wherever you have need of a little heat.

When vacuuming, I prefer to use generic vacuum cleaner bags rather than name brand. The performance is no different than the pricier brands and the cost difference is significant.

I also choose hepa type filters as these meet my needs just as well as true hepa filters which are more expensive This saves on my pocketbook and still gives me a clean home.

For most items, soap and water is still the best way to go. I use these simple items to clean walls and cabinets. I use only hot water with a bit of bleach added for mopping my floors and for cleaning toilets and bathtubs. Both of these are cheap and easy to use. Just remember that the bleach has to be diluted with the water and it doesn’t take much. One part bleach to 10 parts water will clean quite nicely without a strong bleach smell. Ammonia can be used the same way, but must be diluted.

It is also very important to note never to mix bleach and ammonia. The results can be deadly. Before you mix any cleaners to make a stronger one of your own, be sure to check the components. If either of these is present, do not mix it! The odorous gas mixing bleach and ammonia together is toxic and will burn your lungs.

If ever in doubt, use plain soap and water. It worked for generations past and it will work for you today. Otherwise, try some of these tips out for yourself and send your tips in on how to clean around the house without spending a fortune. I’d love to hear how you manage the best of both worlds.

Cleaning Everyday Keeps the Flus Away

With the scare of swine flu at the forefront of the news, many are left wondering just how to clean in a manner that will enhance the probability of not catching the dreaded illness throughout their homes. It is imperative to many to sanitize, sanitize, sanitize.

However, your cleaning methods really don’t have to change. Most of the eco-friendly cleaners found at EZ Vacuums are perfectly capable of providing adequate disinfectant properties while leaving your home fresh and clean.

The only surfaces you may want to really beef up your cleaning around are areas not normally cleaned on a daily basis in most homes. These include light switches, doorknobs, appliance handles, telephones, remotes and faucet fixtures. Basically, any surface touched by multiple people throughout the day. The reason these community surfaces are more at risk for bacteria and viruses is due to the high volume of touching required to use them.

Viruses, bacteria, and germs all rely on a common thread of survival. They are capable of being passed through community objects because they can all survive for several days to several weeks without a human host. This is known as the incubation period for a virus. It is the time it takes for the virus to become dormant and harmless prior to finding a human host to infect. Each virus has a different incubation period.

Then, once it has its new host, there is a short time span before symptoms of any kind are noticed. For instance, you wake up with a serious head cold one morning. Chances are, you’ve actually had the same cold for a number of days but no symptoms were apparent. Further, the probability that you contracted your cold through touching a community object either in a public place or your own home is high. The probability that you touched your eyes, nose, or mouth directly after touching the object is also high as these are favorite entry points for viruses.

In all likelihood, the illness was contracted in your own home. You children used the phone, then you did. Perhaps the virus that created your cold was one that your children brought home from school and transferred to the phone through touching it. The virus then lay in wait to claim its next host: you.

To prevent this, there are several commercial disinfectants on the market that are both eco-friendly and affordable. These compounds can be sprayed directly on the surface and then wiped with a clean, soft towel.

If you prefer, consider that a light solution of bleach will effectively eliminate these hungry little viruses quite well. Also consider that chlorine can kill entire ecosystems. So, be careful when deciding to use such a non-environmentally friendly solution to a problem that is really just a part of life.

In cases such as the swine flu and other little known viruses, fear is usually the driving factor to panic. And, this fear is usually unwarranted. As it turns out, reports are now claiming that swine flu is no more deadly than the more common variety of influenza seen every year. In fact, no one who has contracted it in the United States has died with the exception of the 2 year old Mexican boy who was visiting family members in the U.S at the time of his death. Everyone is recuperating as would be expected with any other flu.

New reports are also contradicting the early findings on the amount of antibodies that can be assumed to be within the population. It has been discovered that while the mutation which created the three strains of flu into one, every single individual strain comprising swine flu has been seen in the general population before. This indicates that recovery is quite probable and that many will not even become infected regardless of exposure since antibodies are probably already in place to prevent such infections.

I believe that the only reason this season’s swine flu created a panic is that patients were not being diagnosed and treated until after complications arose. All viruses can produce complications within susceptible individuals. This is why the common strain of influenza claims approximately 36 thousand lives each year. If we take care of our general health when no illness is present, then we should be just fine. Practicing good hygiene and managing our overall well being should be enough to keep us healthy.

This will be the last blog I write on this subject. It is important to see the true perspective this and all illness must be placed within in order to avoid panic. However, it is never a good idea to pound something into the ground. Remember, common sense is our most powerful defense and should be used when deciding our reactions to any situation.

Earth Day All Year Long

Earth Day. Have you ever really thought about what it really means? If you’re like most people, you observe this day set aside for the conservation of our natural resources but you don’t really connect with it on most levels. In fact, it probably never crosses your mind at all.

Earth day is more than just conservation. It is a significant reminder of our impact on the earth. Of all the land on the earth, we have a direct impact on 83% of it. That leaves only 17% of the land unaffected and unharmed by our very existence. What’s worse is the fact that we begin to destroy the earth from the very first day we are born. Of course, in the first few years of life the choice isn’t exactly ours, but it is these early years that form the base of the justification of our treatment of the planet afterward.

Many of the items we carelessly throw away, including vacuums and other household goods, contain plastics. Plastics take a very long time to biodegrade (3-5 hundred years) because they contain crude oil-which is what gives them the waterproof property we desire. Even disposable infant diapers contain the crude oil so that our children don’t soil us. This leads to happy parents, but a huge demand on a natural resource that is commonly known for its role in the automotive industry.

Basically, Earth Day is meant for us to become aware of our footprints. It is supposed to inspire us to recycle, reuse, reduce, and be kind to the planet all year long. When you consider some of the statistics of what we use during our lifetime, it’s easy to see how we can make a difference.

Below are some ideas that we can use each and every day to preserve the resources our earth gives to us. They aren’t hard to do and only take a few minutes out of our day. But, best of all, these simple steps can make a difference in the quality of life we live and in the conservation of nature for both us and future generations.

1. Packaging is a major problem. Most packages use plastic. Purchase items with the least amount of packaging to reduce the amount of waste. (i.e. Buy socks that aren’t in a plastic package but are instead wrapped with only a small connecting tag for store display)

2. Purchase organic vegetables and produce items that are free of packaging from farmer’s markets. Not only are you saving the planet from wrapping waste, but organic foods don’t use chemical pesticides or preservatives. It’s a great way to eat healthier and to encourage more farmers to avoid the poisonous compounds that add to the pollution of our planet.

3. Recycle trash. This seems simple enough, but most of what finds its way into our dumps could be reused if it had been sorted. Paper, plastic, glass, and metal can all be remelted,molded, or reshaped into a new product that doesn’t require us to use more of our natural resources.

4. If you live two miles or closer to where you work, walk or take a bicycle. Both are excellent forms of exercise that improve your health and emissions are not secreted into the air. This reduces both health insurance and air pollution.

5. Instead of cleaners that rely heavily on chemicals, choose the ones with all natural ingredients. For example, find toilet bowl cleaners that use helpful micro-organisims to degrade waste in sewer systems. Vinegar and water are wonderful for cleaning windows. There’s even several commercial cleaners that are now environmentally safe if you prefer ready made cleaning solutions for your needs.

6. Instead of reading your newspaper on newsprint, which requires a lot of trees for production, try listening to the news on an audible recording or reading it on the Internet. Most stories in the daily news can be had this way and don’t use any trees to make. Two of the best newspapers to offer audible recordings of daily news are The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. (And, if you’re wondering why trees are so important: Trees convert carbon dioxide into oxygen through photosynthesis. We breathe oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Plants, such as trees, intake carbon dioxide and give off oxygen.)

7. When choosing how to diaper your baby, consider the use of cloth diapers. These are washable and reusable, made from natural fibers, and are better for your baby’s skin. By choosing a more natural method, our dumps can see a dramatic decrease in use as the average baby will need almost 3,000 diaper changes in the first two years of life. That’s a lot of waste not going into landfills.

8. Reuse plastic bottles! Instead of buying a cleaner in a plastic spray bottle every time you need a new supply of the cleaner, purchase a concentrated refill that can be mixed with water in the original bottle from the first purchase. The amount of waste is greatly reduced and the spray bottle doesn’t find its way into a landfill.

9. If you purchase milk in a plastic jug, it doesn’t have to be thrown away when the milk is gone. These make great banks for loose change and planters. I love to let the kids decorate the jugs with other items that would normally end up in the trash such as colorful wrappers from cookies and chips. They love the unique banks they make and it helps the planet. The plants serve to help clean up the air in my home and it doesn’t cost me much to reuse what I already have.

10. Clothes also litter the landfills. Consider donating the gently worn items to Good Will or another charity in your area. For those items not so gently worn, consider making them into something else. Old socks make great puppets and cleaning cloths. Old jeans work well as oil rags for working on your car or in the garage. Also, if there is a quilting guild or sewing group in your area, see if they would be interested in clothing not suitable for donation. Many times, these groups will use them as scraps and create beautiful products from what you believed worthless.

There are many other ways to help save our planet and to conserve the natural resources we’ve come to take for granted. Don’t be afraid to try them out. Not only will the amount of trash and pollution decrease, but you may find some enjoyment from creating and being inventive.

Just think what a truly wonderful world we would live in if everyone did their part to conserve the beauty all around us.

Quality Versus Quantity

Searching around for ideas to write about as I flipped through the television channels, I kept coming back to the same thing: the cleaning advertisements. For some reason, the commercials touting the virtues of how to keep a home clean seemed to parody short comedy clips in an effort to sway the viewer to purchase their brand.

Along with this thought, my mind toyed with the product list at EZVacuum. When it did, I realized that many of the products are not those portrayed on the commercials. And I knew why: the quality of the products available from vacuums to cleaning solutions are too high.

Yes, I said it-most commercials push products that are not needed and that do not work as advertised. Even some of the advertised green cleaners are not as environmentally friendly as they claim to be from the more common supermarket brands.

However, they do have a pull. Since we’ve been raised with the idea that cleanliness is next to godliness, we will rush right out and purchase a product that promises to deliver us from the evil which opposes clean. Most of the time, though, we only end up with heavily perfumed water that doesn’t do much but overload the olfactory senses.

If quality and true cleaning are important to you, then it is worth the investment into products such as Allersearch, which is held to strict standards to deliver exactly what is promised and IQAir whose products are of a medical grade. Instead of choosing a vacuum that will only last a few months, invest in a true HEPA filtervacuum such as a Miele Series 7.

If you’re worried about the initial outlay of cash, then weigh that against the advantages of less costs for maintenance over a period of several years rather than a few months. You can also purchase items for maintenance that use recycled materials, resulting in less cost. Most of the higher quality products also use less quantities to do the same job as their lower quality counterparts, which result in lower cost as well.

Basically, the initial outlay for quality over quantity may seem high, but the rate of replenishment and the effectiveness of the products will show a reduced bill in cleaning supplies and equipment in the long run. Cheap isn’t always the best route to go and often ends up costing more than paying for the quality to begin with.

You can find all your cleaning needs at EZVacuum, where quality is a priority and cleaning fits into any budget.

Returning to Nature

Back when time began, no one knew about chemicals. If the earth didn’t produce it, it didn’t exist. Medicines were fresh and dried plants and cleaning consisted of using a plant named soaproot very occasionally in the river or whatever other water source was available. Natural means of elimination were used and areas set aside just for that use on the land.

As time went on, the human race got a little better at understanding the environment and began to work their surroundings in a way that proved beneficial. This process continued to evolve into what we do today. The problem arose with the inability to stop changing what didn’t need to be changed in our efforts to have every luxury the land could provide.

Horses became a mode of transportation and were used exclusively for many years. Then, someone figured out how to make a bicycle and a car. Horses simply couldn’t go fast enough for us anymore. With the introduction of the car came the first real explosion of pollution in the air. Factories had been the main culprit of this before we started driving.

In our homes, simple soaps and water were abandoned. We began to play around with mimicking nature and to create our own line of cleaning supplies. No one thought to check out the safety of the ingredients we were using. Some of the compounds we crafted were harsh and carcinogenic. We didn’t care, or so we thought.

As advancements were made in this area of human development, animals started disappearing. Plant life once so common vanished almost overnight. We taxed Mother Nature and she suffered the injuries as best she could.

Once it we realized the gravity of our act upon the laws of nature, we began to look seriously into the why of the whole mess. That’s where we are today. Searching for answers to reverse what we have done. And, in so doing, the cry of Jesus becomes more powerful : “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do”.

We are coming of age as a species. We are beginning to know exactly what we’ve done and realizing that we are accountable for our actions. Where we go from here is up to us. It is my belief that we should show remorse for the destruction of our natural resources and the scars we’ve emblazoned on the earth by restoring our environment to its former glory.

It isn’t that hard to do, but it does require some sacrifice on our parts. Using environmentally friendly compounds such as good old soap and water, plant cleaners that don’t harm us or the creatures we share existence with everyday. By giving our comforts up and applying a bit of elbow grease and merging that with technologies turn toward reversing the effects we have wrought upon ourselves, we can create a clean planet and a vibrantly healthy planet at the same time. Chemicals. They’re everywhere: in the air we breath, the food we eat, and the products we clean with. As a consequence, diseases such as COPD, asthma, cancer, and allergies are rampant in our society. Pollution is at such a high that no one blinks an eye anymore when it’s mentioned. And, we are the cause of the world we have so carefully created in the name of progress.

Looking back, it’s easy to see how we’ve done the deed. It simply isn’t so apparent how to get back from whence we came. We’ve become so adept at using the latest and greatest in technology for every day tasks that there is a fear of returning to a simpler time. Comfort has become more important than the cost to attain it.

You can help do your part on the journey to a healthier universe by purchasing environmentally friendly cleaning products from EZVacuum.

Cleaning with Pets

Most households have a member of the family that looks a little different. Some of these members have more legs than normal, a few have wings, and most have a true hair and feather growing anomoly. And, like all those who have differences, these members of our families require a little bit of special TLC.

In case you haven’t guessed, I’m referring to the dogs, cats, birds, spiders, snakes, and other animal members of the group we call pets. Each one needs special care in order to remain healthy and happy in our homes. Even the way we clean affects our little critters.

Pets cause some odors and many have a few accidents throughout the course of their lives. While the odors and accidents may not be a pleasant gift to us, how we clean them can make a difference to our pets. Some animals are sensitive to the cleaners we use to expunge ourselves from their natural perfumes. In fact, more than a few of our animal kingdom friends have met with an untimely exit because of the chemicals they were exposed to in the name of cleaning.

If there is any doubt as to the attraction of chemicals to pets, one only has to think of the canine variety of pets special love of antifreeze. The reason our chemicals cause this type of reaction in animals is the smell of the product. Most cleaners have a sweet or flowery smell that mimics the things in nature that each breed is attracted to naturally. What’s worse is the actual flavor of these chemicals may also mimic nature. This can be seen in children and pets who ingest paint chips containing led. The led lends a sweetness to the paint that is rather appetizing but deadly.

Cirrus makes a lovely ensemble for the dogs and cats in your life that guarantee clean and don’t require the animals to wear protective equipment to survive. The vacuum set features HEPA filtration for the cleanest air and carpets with a pet odor eliminating carbon motor filter to boot. It’s an excellent method of cleaning up after your pet without endangering you or your pet.

Allersearch has some wonderful cleaning products for pets that not only address the hygeine of your pet, but also benefit you as the result is a cleaner home with little effort. The Allersearch Pet+ eliminates excessive pet dander which means less of that dander in your carpets, furniture, and air.

Hoover has those pesky little accidents covered with a wonderful product that will eliminate the smell by helping to eliminate the bacteria that causes the lingering odor long after the accident is a memory. Second Nature Pet Soil and Odor Eliminator delivers the clean you want without banishing the poor animal who created it.

You can get all your pet cleaning supplies at EZVacuum, where pets are people, too.

Cleaning Green

If you’re thinking about going green with your cleaning, you may think about making some cleaners of your own. Many of the home-made cleaners work just as well as the top selling brands and costs just pennies to create. However, don’t make the assumption that just because you made it, the cleaner is completely safe. The creation of cleaning supplies, even natural ones, can still be poisonous if ingested.

The advantages of making your own cleaners comes in knowing what goes into them. Most commercial cleaners have a myriad of chemical compounds. Many of those compounds haven’t been fully tested and those that have been are known to cause allergies, cancers, and other forms of disease. While making the cleaning compounds yourself will not result in 100% safe cleaners, the ingredients used are much safer than those in commercial cleaners.

A basic set of supplies can also save you a bundle of money. Many of the things used to create cleaners are staples and already at hand. Cutting the cost of cleaners down to a few pennies also lets you have more money to spend on items you really want or need. In today’s economy, that’s important.

Here’s a basic list of ingredients for making your own cleaners and where you can find them. Recipes for the cleaners will follow.

baking soda—grocery store

club soda—grocery store

Salt—grocery store

lemon juice—grocery store

vinegar—grocery store

ammonia—grocery store

Once you’re stocked up on ingredients, you’ll only need to add water to the mix to get to cleaning green. None of these ingredients harm the environment when used in the measurements in the recipes and don’t pollute the water that is refined for consumption.

Window Cleaner:

½ cup white vinegar

1 gallon warm water

This simple window cleaner will leave your glass sparkling. It’s also safe enough to drink, so there’s no worry with the kids or the pets. The only two disadvantages are the vinegar smell and the harshness to your hands when your hands are exposed to the solution for longer periods. You can avoid this by wearing gloves when using it. For the smell, well, that goes away pretty fast, too.

In terms of cost, this will only set you back about 7 cents per gallon, leaving plenty of dough for a shopping trip.

Coffee Pot Cleaner

1 tablespoon salt

1tablespoon lemon juice


Place the salt and the lemon juice in the coffee pot and fill about half way with ice (crushed is best) Shake around and watch as your pot becomes like new again. Just make sure you rinse thoroughly to ensure your next pot of coffee doesn’t have a hint of lemon in its flavor.

The cost for this little gem is less than a nickle.

All Purpose Cleaner

¼ cup baking soda

1 cup household ammonia

½ cup white vinegar

1 gallon water

This cleaner covers tile and linoleum floors, appliances, counter tops and more. However, use caution with this mixture as it isn’t safe to drink. Make sure you store it in a tightly lidded container and away from children and pets. It also has a cost of about 40 cents per gallon.

To get stains out of carpets and other fabrics, put some club soda on it and rub gently. The stain will be removed. Just keep in mind that this is for fresh stains and not for set in stains.

If you have silver to clean or jewelry, a good scrubbing with toothpaste will make silver shine.

Also keep in mind that many companies are now endorsing and creating green cleaners that cover everything from disinfecting to eliminating household smells. For some of the greenest cleaners available commercially and the most effective, check out the cleaners at, where the planet’s cleaning needs are a top priority.

Spring Cleaning-A Memory Revisited

Spring Cleaning Spring cleaning is on the minds of everyone at the moment. With spring on the horizon, winter’s hold on spirits is lessening. With the teasing warmth of the weather beckoning between winter’s lasts breaths, it isn’t a wonder that we are all a little restless.

The restlessness we feel, though, is what my granny used to call Spring’s demand to clean. We would go through everything from the attic to the basement, reorganizing, remembering, and cleaning. In fact, it is the only time of the year that cleaning was almost a holiday. When anyone would mention this to Granny, she laughed in a knowing way and told us about the birth of a new season.

Listening to her stories, we scrubbed floors, vacuumed rugs, and washed pantries. Trunks were examined, old clothes played with and then refolded, and old letter read. Some things, of course, didn’t return to their previous homes since the idea of spring cleaning required some recycling. Most of the old cards became our craft supplies. Many an old dress got a fresh look with a few stitches and wardrobes grew.

Spring cleaning was a time to reunite the family, make everyone a part of one unit for a few weeks every year regardless of busy schedules. The prize of the whole ordeal was working the garage sale and getting enough to chase the ice cream truck down the street in late spring and summer.

My fond memories of the hustle and bustle of spring cleaning are the reason it surprised me when my daughter’s friends drew back in fear at its mentioning the other day. However, current times make spring cleaning so much easier and even more enjoyable than back in my childhood. Granny didn’t have the luxury of a mop with environmentally safe cleaning solutions built in. She didn’t own a vacuum and had never used a duster with magnetic attraction. We filled pots and pans with hot, soapy water and scrubbed everything on our hands and knees. Floors only got a good sweep with an old broom before we were on all fours cleaning.

No one worried about the environment back then. We had no clue that the chemicals we were using to clean up with were dangerous. I didn’t even realize that the adding a touch of bleach to the water filled with soap with ammonia in it could be toxic. Granny never thought of it as she still used lye soap she made herself. The things we used were sometimes harsh, but they had been used for generations and Granny loved her traditions.

Then came the reports in my teen years about the environment. I learned about global warming and how pollutants increased the rate at which the planet heated up. I discovered the dangers of mixing the chemicals Granny used to clean and I realized that much of what we poured carelessly outside on the lawn or in the old pond down yonder were destroying the inhabitants of nature.

At first, lemon was touted as nature’s answer to cleaning woes. But, there were problems from the start. Lemon juice is an acid and was murder upon hardwood. Many a hardwood floor lost its shine over that little mistake.

Then, companies got involved. With massive research into what is good for both cleaning and our environment, advances were made. Soon it was discovered that even our allergies were able to be controlled by a little bit of cleaning. Allersearch made advances in this area as no dust mite will dare stay where the ecologically friendly cleaners have been used. From laundry to the very air we breath, dust mites no longer had an interest in staking a claim and making a home.

Smells no longer lingered in our kitchens, clothes or upholstery once research got into the picture. Fresh Wave, a completely natural and safe product line, effectively eliminate those unwanted smells with ease. From candles to sprays, there really is a choice for everyone.

Add that to vacuums such as the Miele S7 Series Vacuums, and spring cleaning takes on a magical and pleasant feeling once again. You can get everything you need to clean safely and thoroughly this spring at EZVacuum, your one stop cleaning shop for some of the best offerings in cleaning supplies and appliances. Make some Spring Cleaning memories of your very own with your family this Spring

The methods to cleaning may have changed, but the wonderful memories of cleaning with Granny are the same. I simply fill my granny’s shoes and my daughter gets the fun of playing with everything in the name of cleaning. Laughter fills the air as the wonderful sounds of modern cleaning are done in tandem with nature in a way my grandmother could never know. The ease of use of the products now available and the appliances that assist us every day of the year with cleaning needs were not part of Granny’s repertoire, but the shared family time was.

Spring Cleaning doesn’t mean work…it means love.
