Hello Everyone,

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.

Hint 1: 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.

Hint 2:

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.
