Aside from black spray paint, another of my favorite products on the market is Rubbing Alcohol. Yesterday I used it to completely remove marker from a chalk board and regular marker from a white-board. But the most amazing thing the rubbing alcohol did for me was to clean my furniture.
A few years ago we purchased an off-white sectional with a matching recliner. With two kids and pets it doesn’t take long to turn off-white furniture completely not white. I rented a rug doctor with the
upholstery attachment and tried that but it made the furniture look worse, there were huge water stains everywhere. I got online and bought all kids of different products but nothing worked until once again, Pinterest saved me.
My furniture is covered with a micro-fiber material that has been treated with a stain resistant chemical. Even though it wasn’t worn out I was ready to toss it just because I couldn’t clean it. I had even started shopping around for new furniture. But then one day I saw the alcohol solution on Pinterest and decided to try it as I had nothing to lose.
You simply put rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, spray it on and rub with a white rag or white sponge. Don’t use anything with color to wipe it with as you may have color transfer occur. You will be amazed at the amount of dirt that wipes off. And because alcohol dries quicker than water, there are no
water spots. I was skeptical at first but now I’m amazed that such a simple thing could make such a big difference. Try this, it really works!
If you are shopping for a new vacuum you must consider getting a Dyson. I’ve owned every imaginable brand of vacuum on the market and nothing has worked liked my Dyson. Yes they are expensive but they are so worth saving up for. You especially have to get a Dyson if you have pets. The amount of hair you vacuum up will make you cringe. If you have a friend or a neighbor that has a Dyson do this: vacuum your living room with your vacuum and then ask to borrow their Dyson. You might think your floor is clean but when you are done with the Dyson you will see that it wasn’t clean at all. Get a Dyson!
If you are a coffee drinker you have to get a Bunn. Pour in the water and within 3 minutes you have a hot, steamy cup of coffee. There is nothing worse than getting up in the morning and having to wait for the coffee to brew. With the Bunn you can have you coffee fast. These units cost around $100 but they last for years and are definitely worth it. Some people have the coffee makers that come with a timer that makes sure the coffee is ready at a certain time. In a perfect world this would be fine but what if you get up early or want coffee in the middle of the day? That’s right, then you have wait for it to brew. There is virtually no waiting with the Bunn.
And by the way, I am not getting compensated for these product endorsements. If I had to choose things to take with me to a deserted island I would definitely take my Dyson, Bunn and alcohol but it wouldn’t be rubbing alcohol variety!
Have a great Monday
