Keepin the Loo clean

All of us at socalhomeshop hate cleaning the bathroom. To make matters worse it seems to be one of the most difficult places in our homes to keep clean. However, with a few clever changes and upgrades, it can be much easier to clean and maintain your bathroom. Check it out:

1-No-Touch Faucets: They’re not just for public restrooms, you know. A sensor on your bathroom faucet will eliminate one of the main touchable surfaces.

2-Install or upgrade the exhaust fan: The fan isn’t just for reducing odors or keeping the mirrors from fogging. The better your ventilation system in the bathroom, the easier it will be to prevent mildew and mold. It’ll also prevent paint from bubbling and peeling.

3-Easy-Clean Toilets: Whoever designed older toilets certainly didn’t design them with cleaning in mind! Newer toilets are often designed with smoother services that make cleaning a much simpler task—no more standing on your head to reach every toilet surface.

4-Remove grout: Germs and grime love to build up in the spaces between tile. Instead of tile, you can cover larger surfaces with glass or stone veneer, or simply use larger tiles. That’ll reduce the overall amount of grout in your bathroom.

5-Have kids: They need to earn their keep, why not have them clean it?

P.S. Number 5 goes for pretty much any room in the house:)

 

Everyone Deserves a Home

 

sheba solo

 

socalhomeshop rescue of the week from Rancho Coastal Humane Society is Miss Sheba:)
She is the kind of girl that tries to melt through the chain link on her kennel gate so she can get closer to you. She LOVES people.

Sheba is a German Shepard/Golden Retriever mix who is three years old and weighs 55 pounds. She has a playful and outgoing personality, and loves everyone she meets. One of her favorite things to do is to snuggle with people. She just can’t get close enough. When it’s time for some exercise she loves playing with other dogs. As much as she would love to spend hours lying on the couch, she’s not a couch potato. Sheba is going to need an active family that will include her in almost everything they do.

Sheba first arrived at Rancho Coastal Humane Society in 2013. She was adopted right away. Now her family moved to a place that doesn’t allow dogs.

The $145 adoption fee for Sheba includes medical exam, vaccinations, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.

GO GET HER!
