Easy and natural way to clean your microwave with baking soda (no use of cleaning chemicals).

Easy way to clean your microwave.

This method is very fast way to clean you oven without chemicals.

All you need is a dirty microwave oven, baking soda, cup, water and a sponge or a cloth to wipe off all the dirt.

Just make sure you don't add too much water because you don't want to clean up the spills.

I was going to clean the oven with vinegar but i couldn't find any and then i thought wait i don't need to disinfect the oven i want to clean it and get rid of any smells. 

I think that this is a great alternative to vinegar as it is odourless and still deodorised the oven.

I spent less then 10 min and 6 of those minutes involved watching TV while it's microwaving.

Pet Odour Removal | dog and cat accidents happen

Pet Odour Removal

When having pets in your home, specifically dogs and cats, accidents happen and the smell is inevitable. Dogs and cats may soil the carpets, or simply having a pet in the home, may cause an uneasy smell. There are different way of dealing with these problems and they are fairly simple.

If you have a cat make sure to clean out the litter box a few times a week. The litter box may start smelling after a few days and the smell isn’t pleasant. If you notice a stain on the carpet try not to use any of the retail products that promise to take away the pet odour. These products don’t take away the smell, they rather mask the odour and it often returns.

Calling a carpet cleaning professional will fully take away the stain and odour. They have the specific tool and equipment needed to clean the stain and remove the odour for good. Make sure that if this ever does happen to you, take care of the problem right away. Do not leave it or attempt to clean it yourself because a lot of odours will never be removed if not done properly.

How to Find the Right Vacuum | Vacuum buying guide

There are many different vacuums that you can choose from. Many different companies, brands, colours and variety. Buying the right vacuum may sometimes may be difficult because you may like one but it is not the proper fit for what you need to use.

To start off, try to match the carpet with what you need to clean and your cleaning habits. The upright vacuums with a bag are usually the best overall for carpets. They are easy to manoeuvre and they are simple to clean. Make sure to also check the specific features to make sure it is strong enough for whatever you are vacuuming. Check the weight and see if you are able to lift it if needed. Try to turn it around tight corners, and look for a power switch that you don’t have to bend over to turn on.

Look for a brush on/off switch if you have bare floors, and suction control if you will be vacuuming drapes. If you choose a bagged vacuum check out the prices of the bags before buying it to make sure that they are affordable.

In addition, buy a vacuum that works best with your lifestyle and matches your home. People that live in apartments, the size of the unit matters a lot. If you have a lot of carpets, the bagged uprights are recommended because they tend to have the best suction and airflow.  If you don’t really want to move around an upright vacuum, consider buying a canister vacuum which is small and easier to clean stairs with or without carpets with. Look for an electric brush to give it a good clean and an easy accessible on/off switch. If you want to clean a little spill you need to buy a wet vacuum, that can suck in water and wont damage the vacuum.
