Laundry BE THE KEY TO A SAFE LAUNDRY ROOM AND ROUTINE! ACI recently launched the KEY Pledge laundry safety campaign to make sure consumers have the info they need about proper storage and handling of single-load liquid laundry packets. They’re a convenient, new laundry product form but it’s important to remember that these powerful little packets should be treated with the same care as any other household cleaning product. Take the Pledge at keypledge.com.
Surfaces BE PREPARED FOR CARS TO SLOW DOWN this August 10th … it’s National Garage Sale Day! And be even more prepared by learning how to clean everything from small appliances to antique furniture. Because whether you’re trying to sell items you no longer need, or picking up something fabulous from someone else’s home, you’ll want it to be spotless.
Handwashing LABOR DAY IS UPON US! While many think of it as the last weekend to spend at the beach or the pool, it is really a time to honor our nation’s workforce. Which makes it the perfect time to think about all the germs that exist – unknown and unseen – in the office environment, and what we can do to protect ourselves from them.
Dishes FIREWORKS, PARADES, BBQS ... AND AUTOMATIC DISHWASHERS. As we celebrate Independence Day, let’s not forget about some newer freedoms – like not having to wash dishes by hand. Here’s everything you’ve ever wanted to know (and didn’t know you wanted to know!) about automatic dishwashers.
Sustainability SUMMERTIME IS THE BEST TIME TO ENJOY THE GREAT OUTDOORS. But how can we keep the outdoors great? Pack a park-friendly picnic that doesn’t use up natural resources. In honor of National Picnic Month and National Recreation and Parks Month, learn how to take in nature’s bounty without leaving it a mess for future generations.
Ask Nancy I WAS AT MY FRIEND'S HOUSE THE OTHER DAY, AND SHE WOULDN'T LET ME PUT MY PURSE ON HER KITCHEN COUNTER. SHE SAID MY BAG WASN'T CLEAN. WHAT IS SHE TALKING ABOUT?
