    "Thank you for the great work. The newly painted room looks fantastic. Tom notices everything so that if there is a chance I might want something additional I can have them do it. I feel very comfortable with the guys, and as usual your company came through, does what I need done, and does not disappoint me."

  • Read This Before Heading Out To The Store! Top 10 Products You Don’t Need To Buy

    [caption id="attachment_5017" align="alignleft" width="335" caption="10 Products You Don't Need"]Hacker[/caption]

    As Americans, we have a notion over over-buying. If you are thinking of popping out to the grocery store for some cleaning supply, take a look at this article before going, courtesy of LifeHacker:

    4. Dryer Sheets

    Dryer sheets are popular, but a bottle of fabric softener will get you much further. Combined with an old towel, you can easily replace those dryer sheets with one big, reusable one, or turn it into an after-the-dryer wrinkle releaser. Alternatively, you can get the anti-static goodness from some aluminum foil, or fluff those clothes in the dryer with a tennis ball. None of this is to say dryer sheets are completely bad—after all, they do have a lot of clever household uses themselves.
    3. Sticker Removers

    Products like Goo Gone are pretty useful, but you can easily get by with a number of things in your kitchen. From hair dryers to vodka, vinegar, and even lighter fluid, you've got more than one way to wash away sticky residue from a surface.

    2. Deodorizers

    We all have to deal with funky smells every once in a while, but you can remove odors with just about anything, from the usual baking soda and charcoal to vinegar or even newspaper. And if you've got to de-stink an entire room, why make it smell like Febreeze-y chemicals when you could just throw some vanilla in the oven and make it smell like fresh baked cookies?

    1. Stain Removers

    Stains always seem like the end of the world, but with the right household fix, you can clean just about any stain. Vinegar works well for many stains, while shaving cream does a good job on greasier stains (as does rubbing them with chalk). Dish detergent will get rid of that occasional gasoline stain, and asprin will remove those stubborn sweat stains on your clothes. Grab some corn starch for furniture-related stains, and whatever you do for any of these, make sure you act quickly. If you've got a stain we didn't list, you can bet the database over at Stain Solutions has a recommendation, so head there for more info.

      Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing?

      I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then
      most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a fair price?
      Thank you, I appreciate it!
