3 years ago I was told I needed to change my habits as I had gum disease, it scared me a lot. My recent trip to the local dentist was better, but still scary. I have a new routine for cleaning my teeth and so do the children and we were really lucky to receive some fabulous DenTek products to help us with our teeth cleaning mission.
Babies solely depend on their caregiver for nutrition and hygiene. You have to feed and wash them while they are young but as they grow older, you must teach them how to take care of themselves and create a good “clean” routine. This can start with a simple habit like to making a mess during their feeding times and gradually letting go of control as you may deem appropriate as time goes. Teaching your child self-care at the appropriate age is important since you don’t want them lagging behind their peers as it may hamper their growth and behaviors as an adult.
When it comes to cleaning jobs around the house, one of the most time-consuming and often frustrating jobs is cleaning the grout between tiles. Dirt and grime always seem to build up fast, making it feel like a never-ending cleaning cycle. I hate it! Dirty grout not only looks unpleasant to the eye, but it ages the tile, and can even lead to mould if not dealt with properly. So, what is the secret to getting your grout looking as good as new? Is it all about the elbow-grease, or are there products that prove to be incredibly effective when it comes to cleaning? Well, I’ve uncovered the secrets to cleaning grout and I’m ready to share them.
We have three fur balls at home, two dogs and one cat, I find it really hard to keep on top of the house work at the best of times but even more so when you have to worry about muddy paw prints or cat fluff all over the carpet. Sometimes it just seems impossible to get rid of dog smells, but there are wonderful ways and simple ideas to help you keep on top of it all.
Just like you can’t judge a book by its cover, you can’t judge a household product by its labeling alone. With modern, legitimate concerns about what goes into the products you eat and use daily and the impact those goods have on the environment, it’s more important than ever to be conscious of what you buy, particularly if you have children and pets in the household.
Do you ever feel like you spend far too much time cleaning? Well, I might just have a little tip for you to help save time and keep your house smelling clean and fresh. You may remember last year I wrote about my cleaning tip using Zoflora and steam mops. It is still the best housecleaning tip in my bag of “ideas” and I use it weekly to keep my downstairs smelling fresh and clean. Since writing that post I have changed steam mops too. I upgraded to a new Vax multi function steam cleaner. It is the best thing since sliced bread and no longer leaves me feeling like I am fighting a loosing battle with the housework, and endless amounts of it!
Whisper it quietly, but the ravages of winter are little more than a distant memory and the fresh fragrance of summer is upon us. Embrace the seasonal change in style by sprucing up your home to welcome longer days, shorter nights, higher temperatures—and spirits—all round.
I had a little scare when I went to the dentist last, well I suppose that is an understatement, I freaked out and almost cried. The words “gum disease” came into the conversation and I literally nearly cried in the chair, I didn’t listen to anything else she said. I had already gone into panic mode. Then the treatment came. OUCH!
Many of my friends are pregnant, thinking about getting pregnant or have small children and it has been making me think long and hard about when I was pregnant and how life was a huge risk assessment. Don’t get me wrong, I loved being pregnant, but there were so many considerations and to be honest it hasn’t stopped now the children are growing up.
