- Who knew hanging pictures could be so easy! -
Vacuum large area rugs at least once a week. But also take
them outside three or four times a year for a more thorough
cleaning. Drape them over a fence or clothesline and beat
them with a broom or tennis racket. A good beating removes
much more dust than vacuuming. Take smaller rugs outside for
a vigorous shaking every week.

Kool-Aid to the Rescue
Get rid of dishwasher gunk and odors with Kool-Aid.
Fill the dishwasher dispenser with a packet of lemonade
Kool-Aid or any powdery drink mix that contains citric acid.
Run the empty dishwasher for a full normal cycle to remove gunk,
lime and rust stains as well as odors.
Everyone likes their home to smell good.
Candles and room sprays can get very costly especially if
you have to buy them multiple times a month. Again, basic
items like baking soda can reduce odors in carpets and fabrics.
A small pot of cinnamon and vanilla extra simmering on the
stove can make the house inviting to visitors.
