Sale Away

The prospect of spending a Saturday or Sunday cleaning out clutter isn’t the most tempting of weekend activity options. But if you’re like many of us, the prospect of earning some money for cleaning out clutter creates a much more motivating selling point.

Don’t You Forget About Me

A top to bottom deep house cleaning is an ever-elusive thing of beauty in my eyes, but but it’s always good to have goals — #housegoals! That being said, it was no surprise to me that there are many common areas and items around the house that many of us don’t regularly (if at all) clean.

There’s some significant science behind the magic of microfiber. It seems that cleaning-grade microfiber, called split microfiber, contains fibers that are 200 times thinner than a single human hair. This means higher absorbency, which in part is why microfiber cleaning cloths and mops work so well, especially for removing dirt, oils, grease, and wet messes from surfaces.
