The summer has ended and the truth is that your mood is miserable and you are so sad, having no hope. The relaxing weekends and week vacations are now gone and there are back-to-school and back-to-work labels everywhere, which remind you that there is nothing fascinating going on any time soon, that there is only work and school, busy and tense everydayness, lists full of tasks, time absolutely insufficient, no sun and heat, but rain and wind. The summer has ended and there is nothing you can do about it. You cannot bring it back to the United Kingdom, but luckily you can still go to the summer. There is a week or a long weekend you can take off in September and you are now wondering what to do – a road trip to a town not far away, a SPA vacation in a luxurious hotel nearby, or some time casually spent at home – candles and movie nights, cuddles and hot chocolate, home-made food and take-away-s, series and talks, the sweetness of doing nothing, of relaxing and being at ease.…[Continue reading]
Let’s face it. Let’s be honest at least once. Our houses are messy. Our bedrooms are messy and so are our kitchens and bathrooms. Our cupboards are messy and our wardrobes are messy, as well. We pretty much live in a mess. But the real question is, do we mind? Are we unhappy of this fact? Do we dream of order or we love to have that mess all around? Surely, you will like to tell everybody how organized you are and how well you maintain your home. But if no one ever goes at your place, would you have an incentive to clean it, organize it, and maintain it? Would you?
The truth is that we are messy. And what is even more frank, is that we enjoy this mess and we find the order in it. Yeah, yeah, my clothes are not hanged in the wardrobe, but I know all the time, where each of them is.…[Continue reading]
There was a time when we were always looking for solutions for cleaning the oven only, and the carpet. We liked our homes. We had fun there, playing some board games, or just chatting over a bottle of wine, we spent some time alone, reading, writing and relaxing. It was some time later when we bought the first TV and we even organized movie nights where we put a cassette in the video player and watched the not-so-new film on it. This, however, was so long ago that this is probably the story of our grandparents, because the epoch we live in nowadays has some diverse values from ones of that time and the TV is undoubtedly far too important. And it’s not only this appliance, it’s the computer, the laptop, the tablet, the e-reader, the phones – we are surrounded by screens, screens that entertain us and help us work as well, but also screens that accumulate far too much dust.…[Continue reading]

The majority of us doesn’t count it as a place to be cleaned and believe that it is a storage for some appliances only that need no special care and no maintenance. This is too naïve, though.

However, during the lovely inspection you have to go through after the end of tenancy cleaning, even this room will be checked and it should be in the best condition possible for sure.
You have a few options now and I personally believe that performing an easy-peasy and quick laundry room clean-up every month, is the best one. …[Continue reading]

And that is, of course, too easy to be explained. We watch all the commercials on the TV with friendly and smiley ladies who clean grease and dirt and mold and whatever it is with ease and no problems for a second, we then talk with a friend or a colleague who recommends us the cleaning products that saved so much trouble during the after tenancy cleaning, and we convince ourselves that they are worth the money and we buy and buy, until we have too many detergents that can cope with practically nothing, unless you do. But did you know that some easy cleaning solutions are hidden right there in our house and not in that cupboard full of useless cleaning products?…[Continue reading]
