Bathroom Cleaner

Cleaning your bathroom is a very important thing everyone should do, it is one of the dirtiest place inside our home. I usually clean our bathroom weekly and when I do it our whole apartment stinks with bleach even though the bathroom window is open and the ventilation is running. I have noticed that I felt suffocated with the smell of our old bathroom cleaner and I felt my uneasy.

So I am glad when we bought a new bathroom cleaner it does not smell very strong and didn’t smell like bleach, it smells like apple actually. It is very mild and comforting unlike the other brand we are using.

Stackable Tray

The top of our fridge is becoming messy and dirty these past few days, so my husband thought of buying a small floor cabinet for our kitchen to keep the onions, garlic, potatoes and sweet potatoes in order. We went to one store who sells home appliances to look for one but we didn’t find a smaller one,  we ended buying a stackable tray instead.

We bought three trays but when we arranged them in the kitchen only two are needed so I am planning to use the third  for my things instead.

Cleaning and Organizing

Life becomes very busy these past few days. The other day I decided to clean my junks beside my bed, it is really a messy sight that my husband give an ultimatum to me, clean it or he is going to throw them in the garbage bag.  And of course who wants their thing to be thrown so I’ve cleaned them, throw the things that I don’t need anymore.

My side of bed was not exempted, I have to separate my things according to the importance. Well if you think I find a place to keep all my paper works, yes and no. I just put them all together in the big Nikon paper bag, lol. As much as I want to throw most of the things the packrat in me hug them back.

How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are parasitic insects (tiny brown insects) that prefer to feed on human blood which is why they head for your bed. While you’re sleeping, you are like a bed bug buffet!  Bed bugs can get into your house without you even knowing – on things like your luggage, your clothes, and your furniture.

Once we stayed in a hotel in China which I think has a lot of Bed Bugs, it is very annoying because I can’t even sleep with the feeling of something is crawling over my body. We have no choice because we already book the hotel plus we are only going to stay for one night while waiting for our flight home.

Just want to share the article I read online, when traveling, think of the acronym S.L.E.E.P. to remember the following action steps to help avoid taking bed bugs home with you.

  • Survey surfaces for signs of an infestation, such as tiny rust-colored spots on bed sheets, mattress tags and seams, and bed skirts.
  • Lift and look for all bed bug hiding spots, including underneath the mattress, bed frame, headboard, and furniture. Typically, they come out at night to feed, but during the day, they are most likely found within a 5-foot radius of the bed.
  • Elevate your luggage on a luggage rack away from the bed and wall, since bed bugs can often hide behind head boards, artwork, picture frames and electrical outlet panels.
  • Examine your luggage carefully while repacking and when you return home. Always keep luggage off the bed and store it in a closet or other area, far away from your bedroom.
  • Place all your clothing from your luggage immediately in the dryer for at least 15 minutes at the highest setting upon returning home from travel.

When at home, follow these handy tips to help keep bed bugs at bay.

  • Remove all clutter from your home, which makes finding bed bugs easier.
  • Wash and dry your bed linens often using the hottest temperature allowed for the fabric.
  • Closely inspect any second-hand furniture for bed bugs before you bring it into your residence.
  • Inspect your residence regularly – after a move-in, a trip, a service worker comes in, or guests stay overnight.
