Cook Like A Star
For those who may question my skills as a cook or as an expert on cleaning. I offer this as some food for thought. I was in my past life a Sauce Chef for over 5 years, for those who don't know what a Sauce Chef does, let me explain. Every time you go out to eat at a fine dinning restaurant and order a pasta dish, there is a sauce that's involved. All of the meats are pre-cooked before your meal is ordered and placed into the sauce when ordered. That way when a waiter or waitress orders the meal, it is ready within minutes, instead of the normal hour it would have taken to be prepared. For as my cleaning skills, my mother was old school, she beat those cleaning skills in me. (smile)
To keep your home smelling fresh, purchase two gallons of bleach, then pour 1 half cup into each drain. The reason for doing this is simple, in each drain bacteria is stored and after sometime each develop a smell. After time all drains store some hair from shaving or from washing hair and most garbage disposal's still have lingering food particles in their bins. This can cause mold or mildew and this within itself is very unhealthy. That's why I recommend pouring bleach in your drains once a month. Also wiping your base boards with bleach can help freshen your home. Even if you don't like to mop, the smell of fresh bleach will give the appearance of a clean and neat person. This chore only takes a few minutes and even the laziest person can always keep their home smelling fresh.
