Cleaning and Clearing Out Clutter to Rejuvenate Our Space

spring cleaning clorox means clean
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 Can Stop Cleaning Up After Our Glass Cleaner with Invisible Glass

invisible glass cleaner
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.

Compact Chamberlain Universal Mini Garage Door Remote

Chamberlain Universal Mini Garage Door Remote
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.

Enhancing the Curb Appeal with this #DIY Driveway Project using Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield

Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield driveway
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.

Bring Your Garage Door to Life using Chamberlain MyQ Garage Door Controller

Chamberlain MyQ Garage Door Controller
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 Laundry and Giveaway

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.

Improving Curb Appeal with Renfrew Blue Fusion

Renfrew Blue Fusion paint door
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.

Glass Paint Container

glass paint decor container
I chose is hexagon shaped glass for this project, so it took me a few days to complete it. I had to wait for each side to dry, to avoid the paint from running off. I like how the design and the colours turned out.
