    • My garbage disposals smells, what can I do about it?

      Tired of your stinky garbage disposal? Get rid of odious odors: Feed ice cubes made of vinegar down your disposal. Flip the switch to grind the cubes, then flush with cold water.

    • I can't get baked on food off my casserole, what can I do?

      If you have remnants of your casserole stuck to your baking dish, wad a clean piece of foil—maybe one you used to keep a plate of food warm while the rest of dinner cooked?—into a ball, then use it with few drops of dishwashing liquid to scrub glass cookware clean.

    • How do I remove a pet stain?

      Fresh, old or dry pet stains are hard - sometimes even impossible - to clean or remove from carpets. With the use of a bacteria/enzyme digester and a few cleaning steps, your carpet will be back to normal in no time.

      Things You'll Need

      • Towel or Absorbent Rags
      • Bacteria / Enzyme Digester
      • Plastic Wrap
      • Vinegar
      • Water

      How To Do It

      1. First, blot up any liquid by placing towels or absorbent rags over the spot and stepping on them. Start with gentle pressure and increase it up to putting your full weight down. Change to fresh rags or towels, until no more liquid comes up.
      2. Apply a bacteria/enzyme digester from a pet store to the stains by following the directions - it's the only way to deal effectively with both the stain and the odor. Bacteria/enzyme digesters work slowly, so leave the solution on as long as the directions say. Urine has probably penetrated into the carpet and pad, so use enough solution to reach as far down as the stain.
      3. Once the solution is applied, put plastic over it, and step on the spot several times until the area is well saturated. Then, leave the plastic on the whole time the digester is working to make sure the spot doesn't dry out.
      4. If it's a popular accident site, the bacteria may produce enough ammonia in the course of breaking down the stains to create a super-alkaline situation that interferes with its own action. In this case, you may need to neutralize the spot after the digester has been working for about four hours.
      5. To neutralize stain odors, mix a solution of one cup of vinegar to a gallon of warm water. Rinse the area with this solution and apply a fresh batch of bacteria/enzyme solution.

      Tip

      If after cleaning the pet stain or odor remains, call a professional deodorizing specialist. A complete cure will probably involve cleaning the entire carpet by extraction and replacing the pad underneath, if not replacing the carpet.

    • What can I do to keep my ceramic floors clean?

      Ceramic tile floors are extremely durable and can look as beautiful as they last with proper, regular cleaning. There is no need to wax! Just follow the steps below to keep your ceramic floors looking their best.

      Things You'll Need

      • Broom
      • Soft Mop
      • Bucket
      • Water
      • Dish Soap

      How To Do It

      1. Sweep floors to remove loose dust and particles.
      2. Using a soft mop, mop floors with clear water and just a dash of liquid dish soap. Be sure to change the water when it gets cloudy; too much soap or dirty water will make floors dull or sticky.

    • I love my pets, is there an easy way to remove pet hair from upholstery?

      We love our pets, but can live without the hairy mess they leave behind on our furniture and carpets. Learn how to clean up pet hair with the tips below.

      Things You'll Need

      • Vacuum with upholstery attachments
      • Tape Roller
      • Tape

      How To Do It

      1. To remove pet hair from upholstery, use a vacuum with an upholstery attachment.
      2. Another option to remove pet hair from fabric or upholstery, try a pet rake (a brush with crimped nylon bristles), velour brush, tape roller or even tape wrapped around your hand, and apply light even strokes to remove the hair.

      Tip

      A "pet sponge" is a great option for both upholstery and carpets - especially at the edges, where pet hair tends to collect and vacuums have a hard time reaching. These sponges, which are used dry, are available at pet supply stores.
