TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME #56

Hello, everyone!
Welcome to Tuesdays at Our Home!

Can't believe is Monday again! :) Our weekend went by super fast.
Saturday, I had to do grocery shopping, that took most of the morning and we spent the afternoon 
waiting for this "beauty" to arrive. :)



 Isn't it pretty? And so quite! Oh, I was so glad to see it.
It has been rough around here getting dishes clean daily for four adults. I am officially off " dish duty". :)

Sunday we took advantage of some of the sales in our area and bought some supplies to start getting our yard clean 
for the Spring and Summer months ahead.
Home Depot was having a sale on Scotts mulch, four bags for $10.00, so we bought enough to replace 
the old mulch once the flowerbed is cleaned and bushes are trimmed. 
We hope to get it done next Saturday.


And Sunday afternoon, my daughter and I did a little bit of shopping at JC Penney. Needed some retail therapy. :)
She found a beautiful lace dress, original price $80.00, after the sale discount and a coupon, she paid $22.00 for it.
She got a great deal!




And that was our weekend!
Are you guys ready to party?

CLEAN YOUR FLOOR GROUT WITHOUT USING CHEMICALS


Hello everyone!
Another week is just flying by! :)

I would like at this time to say thank you to everyone that linked to Tuesdays at Our Home. 
Thank you for you participation! 
I really appreciate all your visits and comments.

Did you start your Spring cleaning?
I have been doing some of it myself, a room at a time.
Although, this week, I have been concentrating on our floors.
When we built this house, we paid extra money to have all the grout in the house sealed, but, let me tell you, 
I am not sure they did it, or maybe it just doesn't last more than a couple of years.
Whatever the case is, our grout needed some help.
This week, I did some serious grout cleaning. :)





Although I mop our floors twice a week, I have to tell you, the grout wasn't looking all that well, 
specially in the high traffic areas.
 I have been researching to see if it was possible to clean grout without using chemicals.
My youngest son has Asthma and we also have our little dog, so this was important to me.

I finally came across this video on YouTube and I knew this was the way to go.
All you need is a spray bottle with hot water.



 And this power tool, which you can purchase anywhere.
We bought it at Harbor Freight a while back for about $15.00.


 In the video, you will get directions on how to make a little brush attachment for it.






We had some really bad spots, specially the small hallway on front of the door that leads to the garage.
And now, get ready for the ugly truth! LOL



 
I was very happy to see that, with no scrubbing at all, the dirt was coming right up!
This is right on front of the garage door.




And this is the after.
