Trying to drill a hole in a ceiling can be a messy business! Next time, grab a small diameter disposable cocktail paper plate and drill right through it.

Spring cleaning those baseboards is a whole lot easier with this solution. First vacuum with an attachment to grab up all of the obvious dirt. Then mix 1 tablespoon of fabric softener with 1 quart of warm water for the ideal baseboard cleaner. Use a cleaning sponge dipped in your mix to clean any additional dust, dirt, or pet hair. The fabric softener will leave a clean fresh scent while repelling future dust with its anti-static properties.
