How to Clean a Pillow

I found out that we are supposed to wash our pillows twice a year- Who knew!

Here are the steps to wash and dry your pillows:

1. Check the tag on the pillow to make sure it can be washed- most can be.
2. Use LIQUID detergent, not powder.
3. Wash two pillows at a time to keep the washer balanced.
4. Run the rinse cycle twice.
5. For drying Down Feather Pillows, use the air cycle and make sure to dry fully since it might lead to mold issues if you pull them out still wet or damp. For drying synthetic pillows, use low heat and throw in some tennis ball inside of white socks to help refluff the pillow.

Don't forget to Clean this: Between the Stove Top and the Counter

Just take a kitchen knife wrapped in a slightly damp cloth and pull it through a couple times. If there is a layer of grease or gunk add dish soap to your cloth.

How to Get Rid of Rust in your Sink

Just 3 Steps to remove rust stains.

Step 1: Squeeze lemon juice directly on the stain.

Step 2: Sprinkle a liberal amount of salt on the lemon juice.

Step 3: Let sit for about 4 hours and then rinse with cool water. Get all the salt down the drain before you start scrubbing. Just use your soft sponge and a little dish soap to wash all the residue off. The stains should be gone!

Cleaning your Grout

We have tan grout but it can get dirty really fast. I invested $7 in a good grout brush and then made a vinegar/water/baking soda mixture to scrub it down. It worked amazingly.

Here's the cleaning mix:
Two cups Vinegar
Two cups Water
3 Tablespoons Baking Soda
