How to Clean a Garbage Disposal

Do you have a stinky kitchen sink?

If you do, there are several ways to stop nasty odors.

Since the holidays are approaching I decided to put together a little tutorial.

Today you’ll learn 4 tips that’ll show you how to clean a garbage disposal.

Instead of smelling awful odors you can enjoy the wonderful sent of chocolate chip cookies.

Stop Your Mirror from Fogging Up

It’s time to whip out the long johns!!!

Yesterday it was sunny and 68F in Pittsburgh.

Today it’s hovering around 30F and snowing.

Well, that’s Pittsburgh for you, haha.

I have to laugh a little because I’ve lived here since I was a young lad who watched the A-Team.

There’s nothing like a nice warm shower on a cold winter morning.

But this also causes our mirrors to fog up.

So today I’ll be tackling how to stop your mirror from fogging up.

This might be a great solution for you :D

Installing Outdoor Landscape Lighting

Halloween is today!!

It’s my favorite time of year.

Orange leaves.

Charlie Brown specials.

And it’s close to my oldest daughter’s birthday :D

We get a lot of visitors from October thru December.

Our home has a lot of steps leading to the front door and I’d hate to see trick-or-treaters get hurt.

So today’s tutorial is about installing outdoor landscape lighting.

Plus, outdoor lighting helps deter mischievous teenage Halloweeners.

Let’s just say I’d prefer eggs to stay in the fridge not on my garage door.

This project is super easy, takes only a few hours, and totally gives your home awesome curb appeal.

You’ll be surprised at how straight forward it is – I swear it’s harder to make pumpkin pie (which I love, haha). KEEP READING
