Household tips, tricks, hints & DIY.
Some say that the HOME is the center of everything, such as family, security, love, faith, togetherness, and happiness. I don’t know about you, but I always feel better knowing my house is clean! It gives me this overwhelming satisfaction knowing that I worked hard to give it a “hardy” cleaning! Thus, to make my life easier, I am always in search of new ways to help cut my cleaning times, for MYO/DYI cleaners, and household tips, tricks, and hints. Everything I post on my site, I either made up myself or tried & liked it! Please enjoy!
