As soon as you receive that end-of-the-year bonus, you might be ready to refresh your home with a few new pieces of furniture. Unfortunately, if you head to the store before thinking carefully about what you need or want, you might regret that purchase sooner than you think. Here are two things to think about before purchasing furniture so that you end up with furniture you will love for the long haul:
Whether you clean your carpets yourself or hire a professional to do the job, choosing green carpet cleaning products means a healthier home for you and your family. There are a number of products on the market today that promise to be the eco-friendly choice for carpet cleaning. To be sure you're making a green choice, get to know what ingredients to avoid and how to tell you're making the right choice for your carpets.
You've probably never given much thought to your laundry basket. You use it, maybe even daily, for the task described by its name. It's a container for your clothing. Nothing more. Or is it? It's time to take another look at your laundry basket and all that it can do for you.
Having a backyard shindig? Bust out that basket! Line your laundry basket with a garbage bag, preferably a heavy-duty one to prevent leaks and tearing.
Have you been wanting to host the party of the year? New Year's Eve is the perfect time to have all of your friends and family over, and you don't even need to rent a banquet hall to provide the perfect scenario for your event.
Send Out Invitations - Don't wait another day! Once December hits, people start making their plans for the holidays, and the calendars fill up quickly. Don't forget to include the appropriate dress for the evening.
Your furnace may produce a bad odor, especially when you first turn it on for the year. In most cases, the odor is just normal mustiness from dust and it will go away quickly. Common odors include:
Musty or mildew smells. This usually isn't a cause for concern and you can solve the problem yourself.
Burning oil or smoke. In some cases, burning oil smells are brief and no cause for concern.
