Cleaning Pet Hair

Cleaning Pet HairI love my pets! I have two that are the sweetest, kindest, and most adorable little balls of fur. As much as I love playing with them, petting them, and having them part of my life, I hate the hair. It’s everywhere! I find pet hair on my carpets, furniture, and clothes. I’ve tried those lint rollers to pull clean the hard-to-get pet hair off my clothes and furniture, but it doesn’t do much.

Dander is sticky and helps fur stick to places we don’t want it. The more your pet cleans himself, the stickier the hair. Cats are exceptionally clean and their hair doesn’t budge unless it’s sticking to freshly laundered clothes. But there is a solution to cleaning up after little balls of fur. The Gonzo Pet Hair Lifter works for both cats and dogs! Even better, it is reusable and easy. Continue reading »

Crucial Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring Cleaning TipsThe first signs of spring bring about the desire to open windows, clear out old, stale air, and begin clearing dust and cobwebs from the corners of their home. The task can be daunting, but some tips and tricks from cleaning specialists will turn spring cleaning into a simple task!

Declutter first!

Myra suggests that you declutter before you begin deep cleaning. Go through each room in your home and survey the piles, paying special attention to ‘junk cabinets and drawers’ to eliminate items that you no longer need. If you have a stack of papers that you haven’t yet surfed through, do it! Separate everything into bins for recycling, items to sell or donate, and garbage. With fewer items, it’s much easier to clean effectively. Continue reading »

So Many Vacuum Filters… Where Should I Start?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it doesn’t matter how often you are vacuuming, or how often you are changing your vacuum’s bag. If your vacuum’s filter isn’t properly maintained, you simply are not doing enough to keep your air safe and your home clean! Your vacuum’s filter works to trap dirt, dust, and allergens to keep them out of your air. But if your filter is dirty or clogged, those particles are simply going to get tossed back into the air.

So, now that you know you simply must maintain your vacuum’s filter, what’s next? Shopping for vacuum filters can be overwhelming if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Here’s a breakdown of the different types of filters out there: Continue reading »

Save Time and Money By Washing Your Vacuum’s Filter, Seriously!

I talk a lot about washing your vacuums filter. But I bet I know what a lot of you are thinking. Wash my vacuum filter? Is she nuts? Well, I’m not. Crucial Vacuum actually sells washable filters for your vacuum. If you don’t have one yet, you’re missing out!

Because let’s be honest, how many of us are guilty of waiting way too long to change our vacuum’s filter? Well, I hate to break it to you but you are really not getting much out of your vacuum if your filter isn’t clean.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just rinse your filter out rather than buying a new one? Well, you actually can!

Don’t feel too bad, washable filters are a fairly new trend. The “washability” of our filters allows you to reuse the same filter over and over, therefore saving you time, and most importantly- money!

What are washable filters? Continue reading »
