The tricky question is how do you exterminate roaches?

The answer is : Pest Control.

Day 11: Shine the brass/copper/silver

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…



Day 8: How to deep clean bathrooms

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…



Day 5: Let’s make the windows squeaky clean!

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…

Day 3: Clean the guest bed room closet

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…



Day 2: Clean kids bedroom closet

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…
