Over the past few weeks, we've
devoted hours and hours to cleaning up what could be described (very
loosely) as my daughter's bedroom. A public health hazard is more
descriptive and to the point.
The only thing that wasn't filthy and
a mess was my meticulous daughter. Imagine that.
I know for a fact that she hasn't
really cleaned her room in probably two years. It was disgusting. We
weren't even sure where to begin.
Of course, in this house, we began at
the Internet - at the How to Clean Anything site. Cleaning
categories include interior cleaning hints, exterior, pets, auto,
stain, and recreation.
From there, each category is divided
according to the tip, such as upholstery/furniture, bathroom,
floors, carpets, and even hints and time savers.
In the interior cleaning category,
learn how to get water stains out of furniture, or how to remove
candle wax from stereo speakers. Learn how to remove lipstick or gum
from carpet, or how to remove dark stains from wood furniture.
The site also offers tips for
cleaning various types of jewelry, including opals and silver.
Furthermore, you'll find a search
engine at the site that will help point you in the right direction
if you can't find what you're looking for through the
So if you have a daughter (or a son)
with a room like our daughter's, at least you have a reference of
where to go when you need to get it cleaned! GOOD LUCK!
