Over the past few years, we have updated our garden to encourage pollinators such as bees and butterflies to visit by choosing plants and flowers that attract them. We also made structures where they can build their homes, and created water features like bird baths. We also have a pond area which the birds love coming to take a bath and to quench their thirst or to sit by the rocks and sun bathe.

Oreck's Air Response air purifier with DustSense technology sets it apart from other purifiers in the market. We really like that it can automatically monitor, detect and respond to dust particles and odour in a home, which helps improve air quality within the home. One of the best features we love is not needing to control the settings once we keep the air purifier in auto mode. Auto mode allows DustSense technology to monitor and detect the amount of particles in the air, which automatically senses and responds to deliver cleaner air. This takes the guesswork out.

Last year, with the help of the Schlage Touch we started our journey to the Keyless future. This made things convenient for us, and we had one less thing to worry about. The Schlage Touch uses a custom pin to unlock the front door, which makes it very convenient for the adults and children. In the mornings when heading out, there is no waiting near the door for everyone to be out to lock the door with a key as all it takes with the Schlage is to turn the lever to lock the door.

Spring time when new life literally emerges, is also a time for us to rejuvenate our space and feel fresh! I love taking the time to do a deep clean in every nook and cranny in our home and toss away, donate, as well as repurpose our belongings. During this process, we always find inspiration to start new projects; most of which better utilizes the space and makes it more functional.

We have been doing a lot of cleaning using Invisible Glass® products and love the results! The ClearDry formula in the solution does not contain soaps, scents, dyes, or other streaky additives. When we compare Invisible Glass to blue water glass cleaners, we can immediately see how quickly it removes the most difficult grime, making glass virtually disappear.

Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Products are now available in Canada. I like these aromatherapeutic cleaning products because they are powerful against dirt and grime, and are made with naturally-derived ingredients that are gentle both in our home and to the environment.

Recently, we shared how we brought our garage door to life using the Chamberlain MyQ Garage Door Controller that we find very handy. When we use the app to close the garage door it makes a loud beeping sound to warn that it is closing, and we feel that this sound can attract attention. However, when using the new Chamberlain Universal Mini Garage Door Remote to close the garage door it does not make the warning sound since we are physically close by.

We feel the driveway is one of the most important part of a property, as it adds to the curb appeal. It is also the most used space in a home, and wears out the fastest because it is exposed to the sun, rain, snow, and dirt, as well as vehicle oils. In the past, to keep our driveway looking clean, fresh, bright, and dark we have used asphalt driveway sealers, and also professional driveway sealing services. However, these looks have not lasted more than a few days before the driveway has gone back to look like its old self.

With the rapid growth in technology, it is becoming more easy for us to manage our homes using smart home tech. We find that investing in home tech such as smart bulbs and security cameras does not cost us much, compared to changing prior investments such as garage doors to make it smarter. In order to make it more affordable for folks, Chamberlain has made an universal smartphone garage door controller that we can install to our already existing garage door at a fraction of the cost compared to if we were to change the entire door.

Persil ProClean laundry detergent has been a top seller in Europe because it produces exceptional whiteness, freshness, and stain-fighting abilities. I am glad Henkel Canada has introduced five powerful stain-fighting formulas under the Persil ProClean banner, which we can purchase at top national retailers across Canada. I have been using Persil to do our laundry and like the results of it.

We have a four panel steel door for our main entrance. Although it was already primed when we purchased it, it had never been painted over. Since the door was off colour and looked dull we decided to give it a fresh coat of paint. We decided on using the beautiful green-blue shade of Renfrew Blue Fusion paint for the outer part of our front door to enhance the curb appeal.
