day 120: organizational chaos/ spring cleaning/ deep clean your dishwasher!

Standard

MY “PINTERESTING” TAKE:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

  • Project: day 120: organizational chaos/ spring cleaning/ deep clean your dishwasher!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1 (just a bit time consuming, but not as long as the washing machine was to deep clean!)
  • Would I do it again? yes, it was really pretty simple, and probably should be done more often than I have, but hey, that’s the way it goes!
  • What I would do differently: nada 😉
  • Items used: “Place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor. Next, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle. The baking soda will help freshen and removing stains.”

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • What I would do differently: I wish I knew, maybe it was my hair… I have  a lot of it!
  • Items used: Solia Flat iron, Oribe Beach Wave Spray, Treseme Tres 2 hairspray.

Project: day 96: organizational chaos/simple craft/ribbon organization!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Would I do it again? wish I would have done it sooner! I am going through ribbon quickly with all of my new crafting, so I need to restock already, but at least I have a nice place to store it now! 😉
• What I would do differently:Well, since I really just started crafting, I am starting to accumulate supplies rather quickly, so I definitely need to organize, and pronto!
• Items used: one of our old pant hangers that we don’t use anymore, and a bunch of ribbon that was stuck in a bag!! 😉

Until ipinterest tomorrow!
