Paint Colors For Your Home

Paint Colors For Your Home

Paint is one of the most affordable and easiest ways to change a room. But choosing the right paint colors for your home can seem like an overwhelming task. Paint, accessories, fabric, furniture, and flooring should all blend, so take a good look at the room you will be working on, preferably before you choose a paint color, and decide what will stay in the room, and what you may want to move out of the room.

The first thing you should do when choosing interior colors for your home, is look around at colors that make you feel good, happy, and relaxed. These colors are probably already in your home. A few examples are the colors you love to look at in your flower garden, the colors in your jewelry, or pottery, or they can be found in the colors of the clothes in your closet.

Scorched Pans Cleaning Tips

Scorched Pans Cleaning Tips

How often does it happen to get the pan burnt? Yes, it might be an accident, but cleaning the pan afterwards is a must, if you want to use it again. Whether you fell asleep while boiling water for tea, lit the wrong burner, or just really, really burned a sauce, a scorched pan not only looks bad and smells awful, but becomes virtually useless. Many people, thinking the pan is ruined, simply throw it away. This is not necessary – with some simple household ingredients, you can clean a scorched pot or pan in no time, and be cooking with it the next day. Do not attempt to scrub the pot or pan if it has scorched, as you will most likely only make matters worse and ruin your scouring pad. There are a few different ways, though, to clean a scorched pan. The most popular is to use baking soda. First, make sure the pan has cooled before you begin attempting to clean it. Cold water on a scorching hot pan can be even more damaging, if not dangerous. Once the pan is cool, fill it with water just past the line of where it was damaged.

Cleaning A Wood Blinds

Cleaning A Wood Blinds

Before cleaning your blinds, you may want to lay an old sheet down under them to catch any dust or dirt that falls. When finished, take the sheet outside, shake it out, and move on to the next set of blinds. Clean wood blinds frequently to avoid dirty build up. If you don’t have time for a thorough cleaning, at least dust them. Even closing the blinds and running a duster over them weekly will make a difference. Feather dusters tend to scatter dust, so use cloth, wool, or “magnet” dusters. These tools will pull the dust away from the blinds, but it will collect on the surface of the duster instead of flying around the room. Take the duster outside and shake it, or brush off the surface, before attempting to use it on another set of blinds.
