This post is born out of my cleaning regimen. I spent the first half of this past Saturday cleaning part of the house: this included dusting, washing, squeegee-ing, and wiping down with clean microfiber cloth ceiling-to-floor glass windows, throwing out expired items from the refrigerator and kitchen pantry, and wiping down bathroom counters. I still have so many items to cross off the list like…
This post is in response to a reader’s request for reviewing the Siemens dishwasher.
As I mentioned earlier, buying kitchen appliances in India is a nightmare as most electronic showrooms do not sell/display all brands, especially Siemens, Faber, Kaff and Bosch. One needs to visit each of their exclusive showrooms. When I visited showrooms around Marathahalli, almost all of them were hard selling LG. Unti la…
Gross alert: there’s a lot of stomach-churning description in this post. So, in jest, please be warned that this is not for the faint-hearted.
Strands of hair. Ewwww….
Lime scale build up. Not a pretty sight.
Discolored tiles: disgusting!
Dirty foot marks.
Gross and wet. Slimy!
Not a tough one to guess what part of the house you will be cleaning today. Today, as we clean one of the nastiest parts of the house,…
A big part of Diwali festivities is the copper, silver and brassware that comes out on display. In many homes, this has been passed down generations. For me, they hold a special significance as these were given by my parents during our wedding. For years, I kept them tucked away in a loft. Now they are on display adorning corners and console tables in the…
The routine of cleaning bathooms is more mechanical and methodical than the remaining parts of the house, and one that you need to do regularly. There are 4 bathrooms in the house that I take turns through the week to ensure they are clean. Only two of them are used extensively on a daily basis. The biggest enemy in your bathroom is that one factor…
The favorite feature of my current home: floor-to-ceiling windows and wall-to-wall glass windows. This ~ translates to a flood of natural light.
But, that also means tough deep cleaning once in a while. it’s quite a task to keep the shine on large glass windows. They looked the best the day professionals from MyBlueBottle cleaned the windows. Within weeks, dust and grime formed a layer on…
Some of the most dustiest places in a home are above our heads – places that are out of normal sight and reach. Ready to look upward? All the surfaces over your heads will get a shine! If you can spare a little over 30 minutes, it will be wonderful.
What you’ll need: collect your supplies
I’m getting a little inventive with this one after having tried…
How did the past two days of cleaning go?
Were you able to take out 30 minutes from the day to go through the sorting and purging?
Today, we deal with the last of the closets in the house – the guest bed room.
This is where I usually stash the bed linen, long coats, jackets, extra towels, and the other racks are often empty for guests when…
When my son was young, I would marvel at his room for he kept it clean and organized, despite his fancy for puzzles. Many of his toys like the remote-controlled helicopter, puzzles, building blocks, or the pull-along Snoopy are in perfect working condition even now.
Given that his interests are evolving from complex origami to reading, his room is far from picture perfect. And I’m perfectly…
Ready for Day 1 of the 30-minute Diwali cleaning challenge?
Today, we start with the master bedroom closet. Closets can be a pleasure to watch the day they are cleaned and a nightmare on days when they resemble a dump yard. Depending on how many clothes you have, how big your closet is and when was the last time you cleaned, this activity can either take…
