How to get a sparkling clean bathrooms with one awesome product? No elbow grease.

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,…



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…



Seepage scare: How we fixed a seepage on the terrace

Monsoon ~ romantic.

Petrichor ~ the distinctive, fresh, earthy scent announcing the oncoming rain is romantic.

The first deluge of the season after the sweltering heat and the pleasant evening breeze is more welcoming than any other, especially after the summer this year in Bangalore.

DIY: How to make a rope hanging planter

Today I have a super easy DIY post for you. Remember in the rope shelves post, I promised to show you how to make a hanging planter with rope. Ready?

There is a phase in my life when I am obsessed about something. For now, it is ceramic and glass jars. Anything but plastic. Love the Organica pickle bottles. Wish they were square. I find myself buying those pickles for the bottles.

Do you have glass jars lying around the house? If yes, then this DIY will be a…



DIY: How to make newspaper seedling planters

The credit for today’s DIY goes to my 9-year old Pranav who has been a HUGE origami buff for over four years now. There was a time when his days were filled with only paper planes, transforming ninja stars, and dragons. During that time if there was something called persistence, I was learning it from him. It all started with a F-16 fighter jet…

A few weeks ago, I spotted a set of these tall planters on sale and got them home. They had clearly seen…



Creating a statement piece of furniture with Asian Paints’ Wood Tech Studio

We finally moved into the new house. It’s been two weeks. This was the first weekend in months when we had some time (a few hours) on our hands with nothing to do. That was a strange feeling. After you’ve been running around tirelessly for months for everything from hinges and laminates to painting and furniture, there is a sudden vacuum. Oh, we are not…
