How to Clean a Bathtub FAST!!!

How to Clean a Bathtub FAST

How much time do you really have to clean?

Not much.

That’s why I try to come up with great ideas to make cleaning easy.

I get inspiration from all over the place.

One spot I love visiting is the automotive section of stores.

Last week I found this awesome drill attachment called Mothers PowerBall.

First off, it has the BEST name ever.

What has me even more excited is how you can use the PowerBall to clean a bathtub quickly.

I think you’ll love this idea – it could be the newest way to clean your tub and entire bathroom!!


Staining Pressure Treated Wood

Staining wood can be a PAIN!

The only thing that’s worse is stripping it in 2-3 years!!!


I have a 10 year old retaining wall that’s made from pressure treated wood.

It’s in great shape and I’d like to keep it that way for years to come.

After a little research and some talking with store associates I decided to use Olympic Elite Woodland Oil.

I’m excited to show you the results. Before and after pictures are always FUN :D KEEP READING

Yale Digital Door Lock

Cars are going keyless so why not houses?

If my 10 and 11 year old daughters love the Yale digital door lock you might too.

I installed one because our kids are getting older and need a reliable way to get into the house.

And let’s just say I’m not totally convinced they can keep track of keys.

I installed this lock in about 30 minutes on a Saturday morning and know  you could do the same thing.

Check out the tutorial to see how cool it is. Plus, there’s a tiny surprise at the end — don’t miss out!! KEEP READING

How to wire a dimmer switch

Instant home improvements are awesome!!!

So this week I wanted to share how you can wire a dimmer light switch in 15 minutes or less. Plus save at least $79 by DIYing it.

Cathy, one of our sensational fans, asked me a few weeks ago if I could do this tutorial.

She has a rotary dimmer that she’d like to upgrade.

Cathy, your wish is my command.

My mother-in-law is also a Cathy, lol. What a coincidence because the switch in this tutorial is her’s!!!

Good thing I did this project because I made a discovery that could have led to a house fire.

Okay, let me show you how to replace a dimmer switch, save some dinero, and safely upgrade your home. KEEP READING

Garden Hose Repair

Garden hoses don’t last forever.

Mine sprung a leak while I was trying to power wash our house.

Instead of throwing away the hose I decided to fix it. The repair parts cost less than $9.

Maybe you’re in the same predicament as me and have a hose that needs TLC.

Even if you don’t, I’m willing to bet this tutorial will totally come in handy down the road.

It’s the small fixes (like this one) that make me happy. But my first two attempts were complete duds.

Today I’ll share my failures and my glorious successes so that you can be a better DIYer than me. Let’s get started :) KEEP READING
