6 Common Household Problems (And How to Fix Them)

We work so hard to create a beautiful, functional home. Unfortunately, unexpected issues can sometimes stand in the way of a happy home life. We are therefore looking at six of the most common household problems and how to fix them.
  1. Dirty Windows
Nothing can ruin a stunning view quite like dirty windows. All it takes is some raindrops to fall onto your window to create unwanted stains on windows, which can prevent natural light from entering the room. When this happens, we recommend filling a spray bottle with white vinegar and spraying it onto your windows. Allow the vinegar to sit on the pane for a few minutes before wiping the glass clean with a microfiber cloth. You’ll restore your view in less than half an hour.
  1. Messy Electrical Wires
Nothing can ruin an interior design quite like messy electrical wires, which are essential yet unsightly. Don’t allow loose wires to destroy your d├ęcor and look for a handy solution. For example, you can cover up the cords with a handy piece of molding so they will not detract from your stylish interior.
  1. Broken Air Conditioner
An air conditioning unit is a must-have during hot summer months. Unfortunately, unless they receive regular maintenance checks, it could be a matter of time before they stop working or decrease in performance. If you have a poor performing or broken AC unit, we recommend turning to Heating and Air Conditioning services, who can repair an AC unit to its former glory.
  1. Stains on a Carpet
A wine stain on a carpet will stand out for all the wrong reasons. It takes just a matter of moments to do, but it can be a lot more challenging to remove. Instead of changing your carpet, the best solution might be to buy or rent a steam cleaner, as the steam can help remove a stubborn stain from a carpet with ease.
  1. An Ant Infestation
Once one ant has invaded your home, you can almost guarantee there will be hundreds more just waiting to enter your home. You’ll spot them crawling along the kitchen counter, making their way into the cabinets or entering your stove. If you are experiencing a red or black ant infestation, you would be wise to set ant traps, lay granules or use sprays to prevent the ants from taking over your home and destroying your food. Try to stop an ant infestation as early as possible to ensure it doesn’t grow out of control.
  1. Door Issues

Are you struggling to close your bedroom door? If so, your best option might be to replace your door frame. You might also need to remove the door, followed by the trim to replace the jamb. While it might sound stressful, it will be worth it to enjoy a little more privacy within the home. Hire a professional if you lack the confidence to do the job yourself.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
