You cant expect your dirty washing machine to make your clothes clean

Take a moment and look inside your washing machine. If you have a front loader open the door and look in the creases of the opening where the rubber part meets the door. If you have a top loader bend down and look right under the rim. I am 100% sure that you see scum. A dirty washing machine cannot really clean clothes properly. The build up is made of detergents, fabric softeners, and old dirt that has stuck to the detergents. To clean your washing machine first get a clean damp rag and tooth brush and scrub the creases inside and around the rim of the machine. You will find gunk that will gross you out for sure. Take the soap dispensers out where you fill your detergents and fabric softeners then scrub the film out. Finally run an empty load by using vinegar instead of detergent. Let the water clean the machine without soap and see how much soap actually forms while this load is rinsing. Once the empty cycle is done re wipe out the crevices and now you are ready to actually wash clothes and know that they are clean.

Non touch soap dispensers are the new best thing!

I have noticed that Lysol had recently put on the market a non touch soap dispenser. It is the first one of it’s kind that is in the price range of under $20 (around $10 if you can find coupons). I do not like the harsh Lysol soap but the dispenser is a great idea. I bought a non touch soap dispenser from Bed Bath and Beyond from the common household brand Simple Human. Its cost was around $20 to $40 depending on the size. You add your own soap to the dispenser and batteries then place your hand under the dispenser and soap automatically comes out in just the right amount. It reminds me of the non touch system in the public restrooms. It would be awesome if I could find a faucet dispenser for this price range, my bathrooms and kitchen hand washing station would be a germ free zone. The handle on the kitchen and bathroom sinks and soap dispensers get extremely grimy and full of germs. They are the first things we go to grab before washing hands and the last things we touch after we wash our hands. So are we defeating the cleansing purpose? Not if we have a non touch soap and water dispenser!! I recommend buying and kind of non touch soap dispenser and adding your own eco friendly hand soap.

How to start a compost system at home without burning your house down

I had some clients recently who were becoming more aware of their everyday habits and how they were impacting our earth. They decided they would get the whole family involved in starting a compost system. They began the process by adding a container by their kitchen sink and putting compost products in there such as egg shells, coffee grinds, left over fruits and veggies ect… That container would then be emptied into the main compost container on the side of their home. this cycle went on for months until ONE NIGHT…… My clients neighbors called them and said their house and fences were on fire. Everyone was home and got out safely and fast enough to put out the fire that had actually started in the compost. They did not know why the compost set on fire. This bewildered me because I thought they had done the proper research before starting such a system that seems so easy and care free but is really time consuming and hard. A composts main objective is to transform organic materials into a stable usable product. However there are steps that need to be followed in order for the compost system to work. The two main steps are to use a container that is made specifically for composting. They are not as cheap as a plastic bin or trash can but they are made of materials that can handle what is going on in the compost system every time something is added to it or it is turned. It needs air to work so it needs to be turned frequently. If not turned the components will get hot and overheat. Thus causing a fire like the one that transpired at my clients home. So if you are thinking of taking a green approach to your gardening needs, do some research on the methods. It may seem cheap and easy but it really is a costly startup with a lot of work needing to be done in between. Round rock eco friendly maid service Austin eco friendly maid service
