house. For those times when the shutters must stay shut, we offer the
- Clean your
refrigerator tray. Many people never
realize that there's a removable drip tray at the bottom of your
refrigerator, right next to the
floor. It catches moisture from your 'fridge, and is an infamous hotbed
household mold and odors. This mold is blown through your entire house
the fan in the refrigeration unit. Pull the tray out and clean it once
month with a solution of household borax and water.
- Freshen your car's
interior by putting a cupful of baking
soda into the ashtray (remove any ashes, fast food receipts or
half-eaten lollipops first, of course!

cleaning. While the heating season is
mostly past, the time for air conditioning is
fast approaching. The moise air of the coming summer is especially
good for the growth of duct bacteria. Now is the
perfect time for a duct cleaning, since Air Comfort service
technicians are very available, and heating work is less of a
disruption for your family. Mention this Internet listing, and we'll
even send you a money-saving coupon -- an added reason to make this
year's spring cleaning the cleanest of all!

- When should I change
the wash-water? The surprising answer
is NEVER, as long as you follow this common-sense approach to mopping
and cleaning. Use two buckets instead of just one; the first filled
with cleaning solution and second empty. As your solution-filled
sponge, cloth or mop gets dirty, wring it out into the EMPTY bucket.
When you're done, simply pour the dirty solution down the drain ... and
all your household dirt along with it!.

- How Do I Clean This
Moose Head? Cleaning expert Don Aslett
suggests going over mounted animals weekly with a light feather
dusting. Never go against the natural lie of the hair or feathers, he
