We love our furry friends but don’t always love their messes. Accidents happen, but stains and smells tend to hang around the longer they sit. Here at Rockin’ Green, we’ve rounded up some general guidelines on the best way to remove pet stains and smells by material.
Many people think laundry is easy. Just dump in clothes, soap and water, right? In fact, doing laundry well so everything gets clean and garments are preserved is a careful process. Here are some common mistakes people make and how you can avoid them.
Most brands of laundry detergent have a high PH. Sure, they may destroy organic matter like dirt, sweat, and germs, but that same mechanism they use also harms your clothing and skin. One of the great things about our Rockin’ Green is that it’s as close to neutral as it can be.
One of the best qualities to instill in your children at a young age is responsibility. Assigning chores to your child is a great way you can begin to teach them this. The great part about these house chores is that, even at a young age, your child should have no problem with them.
I know the winter is still a ways away for many people, but autumn will be upon us before we realize it. Soon we’ll be trading afternoons romping around the park for quiet days inside. Before it gets cool, here are some cleaning tips you have to take advantage of.
Most people pump their water out of the ground through a well. As the water travels through soil and rock, it picks up minerals (like calcium and magnesium). Even if you’re on city/town water, it still mixed with rock at one point. Water with lots of minerals is considered “hard water.”
If you have soft water, count yourself lucky. Soft water is water with a low concentration of calcium and magnesium, as well as other harsh elements. It feels slippery and lathers easily. You also won’t see mineral deposits on your pots and pans.
Sports should be an integral part of everyone’s life. They give you a chance to get some exercise without feeling like work. They also teach us valuable lessons about winning and losing to help keep us grounded. No matter who plays sports in your household, stains are usually common.
