Handy Tips to Make Life Easier - Dee Hnatko - BlogIt's always great to come across a bit of information that might prove to be useful in the future.


With that in mind, here are four helpful tips that could very well come in handy when trying to solve an unexpected household dilemma:


Pillow Primer: If your feather pillows seem too bunched up or matted, toss them in an automatic clothes dryer for a tumble that will give them a fluffing up. (Make sure there are no tears in the fabric).


Crayon Cleaning: If you have wax crayon markings on your wall, apply a little heat with a blow-dryer to soften the compound. This will make it easier to wipe clean with mineral spirits or rubbing alcohol. (Be sure to test in an inconspicuous area before wiping finished surfaces).


Glass Act: When cleaning up broken glass, use a fresh piece of bread to gather up, and hold onto, tiny shards that are often hard to pick up with a wet cloth.


Animal Fleas: Believe it or not, Dawn Dishwashing Liquid kills fleas instantly. Add a few drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well to avoid skin irritations and say "Good-Bye" to those pesky fleas.


Do you have any handy tips that make life easier? Feel free to share in the comments section below!

Home Bars Are Making A Comeback

The days of the old "recreation room" bar may be gone, but home bars are as popular as ever. No longer highly visible with tall stools surrounding a focal point in the corner where plumbing was accessible, bars can now be located almost anywhere. This is largely due to building codes that reflect more accommodating materials and kits, such as drop ceilings, floating floors, and easy to install plumbing and electrical connections. 

Now modern bars are able to blend in as complementary components of larger entertainment centers, keeping sightlines clear for viewing big screens from every corner. So, if you're planning a home theater area in your home, you might want to consider making it more functional by adding a small bar area with a sink, an insulated ice chest, and a blender. It is sure to contribute to more functional use of your enhanced living space.

Your home's entranceway serves a number of important purposes by providing everything from front-door security to welcoming hospitality. It even has the function of helping you, your family and your guests get organized during arrival and departure. So it's worth asking how your front entrance might better accommodate both your practical and aesthetic needs.

For example, if your foyer floor is difficult to keep clean or is easily stained, consider replacing it with wall-to-wall ceramic or glazed clay tile. If your entrance area is small, you can add an illusion of space by installing mirrors on two sides, either on full-length closet doors or at eye level. Accent the mirrors wth strategically placed lighting. Limited closet storage can be expanded with custom shelving or possibly by removing closet doors to accommodate a bench and a coat tree. For more efficiency, and a statement of grandeur, add a tall antique foyer chair, complete with hooks, an umbrella rack and a built-inn hall mirror. 

Sometimes it only takes a little imagination to give you and your guests a more welcoming impression.
