The best way to care for your hardwood floor is to avoid harsh chemicals especially vinegar. Stay away from soaps too. These will ruin your floor appearance overtime.



Waxing works but only if allowed to dry and then shine using a soft towel or dry mop. Steam cleaners release excessive water which can cause cupping of your hardwood floor.



To care for this type of floor. Simply wipe with a damp mop. You can also cover the walking area with a rug. This will not only keep the floor clean but will protect it from scrapes and scratches.



4.LAMINATE FLOOR fake beautiful

Your floor can imitate many different types of floors that’s why it is called a laminate floor. However, because it is not 100% natural cleaning methods are not all together restricted. Let us see what we find that is great for cleaning this beautiful floor.



STEP 1– Combine 1/2 cup Pine-Sol to 2 gallons of warm water.

STEP 2-Using a clean mop, wipe the floor with the mixture. Wring the mop until it’s almost dry before wiping to avoid the floor from becoming too wet which can cause ugly looking streaks. Repeat the process if the floor is drowning in the dirt.

To clean these beauties all you need is water a bucket and a mop. To keep your tiles glowing clean it as often as necessary. The grout is where the problem lies. Use a solution of 1/4 cup liquid bleach and 1/2 cup baking soda.



Combine into a paste and use a toothbrush to plaster it on the grout. Let this remain for 1 hour. Using the same toothbrush, scrub the grout to remove the gunk. When you are through, use a wet mop to clean the floor.




The most common issues with having carpet flooring are stains and odor. One good advice is to try to keep your carpet dry. If this should happen get it dried as fast as you can.



Not doing so can cause a moldy smell in your home. Do so by lifting the carpet (wet area) then clean the floor with vinegar and water. Allow to dry, replace the carpet, and use a blow dryer to dry the area.

7.BAMBOO floor is the way to go

I just love bamboo. This is an awesome floor, new to the market, and eco-friendly not to mention how beautiful it is. Because it is new on the market not much is known about its domestic care. Doing my research I contacted someone who owns a bamboo house in the Caribbean.



Also, I have a bamboo dresser that always has its own glow, I guess that’s from the varnish. Let’s see how to clean a bamboo floor the right way.



Add to a bucket a gallon of water (warm) toss in  1 cork full of Murphy’s Oil Soap. Use a clean mop along with the mixture to wipe the floor. Avoid the floor getting too wet. It turns out that all your bamboo floor need is a little TLC

I really don’t know what Grandma’s secret is, all I know is that paint on clothes is impossible to remove, but how did she actually invent a paint removing trick?

If you should search every kitchen in modern society you will be sure to find a blender. If you are one of those blender fancy people then your blend would play a very vital role in your everyday life especially when it comes to making a nutritious shake or a glass of refreshing fruit juice on a hot sunny day.




However, sometimes we tend to rush clean our blender without cleaning it the proper way. This can make your blender carry a gunky odor and very soon green sediments will start to grow in the hidden areas.


This can be bad for your health!!!  I am almost certain that no one wants to drink a cup full of gunk so let’s get your blender clean.



The first step is to separate the top from the bottom which is the electrical section. Pull out the lid, that’s the cover, Now on the lid, there is another smaller lid in the center. Use your thumb to push this out away from you.




The second step is removing the rim. The rim is the other end of that entire area. Here is very important when cleaning your blender, as this is where all the hidden food is stored. Twist this area off and carefully remove the blades.

While doing this you will see a little rubber circle, put his away carefully.



Use warm water and your favorite dish soap to wash all the separated area. Use a toothbrush to get to the hard to reach areas.

Rinse also with warm water and place on a kitchen towel to drain. DO NOT DRY WITH PAPER TOWEL. Drying with a paper towel may leave behind small pieces that may find their way shake in your the next time you blend.



This area should not be washed with water at any time at all if you are plan on having your blender to use the next day. Washing this area will completely total your blender, so here is how to clean this area.

Using a clean cloth. Get it wet then ring it almost dry, dab a little dish soap on to it and gently wipe in strokes.



Use the same toothbrush to the area, which is right here. The toothbrush will remove any stuck-on food particles. Rinse the kitchen towel and give it another wipe this time try to remove all the soap.


Don’t forget the cord, wipe the cord to give it its finishing touch.

A small cotton bud will work in place of a toothbrush. Cleaning your blender can be fun after all.




STEP ONE…This not complicated if you do it in reverse. Step one, replace the rubber circle. To do this the blender should be upside down.



STEP TWO… Ensure the blade is replaced securely, then screw on the rim tightly, making sure it’s not capped.

STEP THREE…Turn over and replace that centerpiece back into the center of the lid. Now, carefully place backs the entire blender together.



STEP FOUR… This is the step where you treat yourself to a glass of refreshing tropical punch and relax.

We hope that you find these tips helpful, see you soon.
