Holiday Cleaning Tips for a Stress Free Christmas Sponsored by Shark

As you get ready for the busy holiday season, now is the perfect time to do a deep clean of your house before decorations go up and guests start to arrive.

Our house is a tri-level, meaning that each room is broken up into smaller spaces but the connecting open floor plan makes everything feel bigger. During the holidays, we need to be creative to add the tree and holiday decorations into the living room without making the room feel cluttered. Continue Reading…

Spring Cleaning Essentials

Spring Cleaning with Pets

As the season turns warm, its become the time of year when I spend most days chasing Rogue around the house with a broom. Corgi’s are constant shedders, but during the spring cleaning up after her becomes a daily staple. Ironically we picked a corgi because the ‘thought’ they shed less than huskies. Jokes on me. 

With spring cleaning on the horizon, the thought of corgi fluff bunnies all over the house has me on high alert and the Shark® Rocket Complete with DuoClean™ Technology is the ideal solution for staying on top of the fur. I have been a huge fan of Shark for years. When I first switched over I was a combination impressed/horrified/shocked at how much fur was in the canister after just one run (especially considering that I had run the OLD vacuum before hand). 

With two years of my semi-ok house cleaning combined with the corgi fluff this spring is time for a deep that can help get rid of the dust thats built up in the corners, tops of built-ins and blinds. The new Shark Rocket Complete has the ability to swap from vacuuming the floor to the top of the built ins in minutes. 

Lightweight and easy to transition the Rocket Complete picks up fur, dust, and anything else that gets dragged in on the floor. With rugs, carpets and hardwoods in my house I need versatility to help me get everything cleaning in one swoop and with the Rocky Complete I can even pop out the brush roll and swap from carpet cleaning to hardwoods – hows that for versatility? 

When it comes to cleaning, the less I have to do, and the less products I need in my house to get it done – the better. The Shark Rocket means I can combine dusting, vacuuming and sweeping into one compact package that rolls away in the closet. 

What are your go-to spring cleaning essentials?

Removing Ink Stains

I was laying in bed Sunday morning debating between getting up or going back to sleep for a few minutes when I hear the unnatural sound of the dog chewing. I look up over the foot of the bed and see her with a bone. No problem, lay back down.

20 minutes later I wake up with her laying in my face. As my eye’s start to focus I realize that somehow, her entire muzzle was dyed blue.

WHAT the hell..
