Hello Everyone,

Do you ever find yourself chasing strands of wet hair or
running into dust balls in the corners with your sponge or
cleaning rag? You can eliminate this nuisance by vacuuming
the bathroom before you get out your cleaning solutions.

For a really thorough cleaning, start at the top, vacuuming
the dust from light fixtures and the top of window casings.
Then work your way down. And finally, vacuum the floor
methodically so you cover every inch. You don’t want to
leave any stray hair or dust bunnies to muck up your
cleaning water. A soft-bristle upholstery brush works best
for this type of vacuuming.

Hint 1:Do you make your bed every morning? You should be...

There’s a reason the Marines start the day with this simple
task — also known as "wake and make."

According to retired Admiral William H. McRaven, author of
"Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life …
and Maybe the World," "It will give you a small sense of
pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and
another and another. By the end of the day, that one task
completed will have turned into many tasks completed."

Hint 2:

To freshen up the exterior of your home, don’t spend a
fortune at the local nursery. Instead ask family and friends
for trimmings of their plants. Many perennial plants and
bulbs can easily be divided and shared. Transplant the ones
you like best into your own yard.
