Java Talk: Household Tips
Java Talk Wednesday, February 04, 2015
This is our first edition of Java Talk for February 2015. And the topic is household hints. Any household hints. Cleaning tips. DIY tips. Do you make your own household cleaners? Soap? Detergent?
Just so you know, I have linked all the Java Talk topics at the bottom of this blog so they can be readily found.
Okay, so here's my hint. When I clean my two apartment ceiling fans, I don an old sock, a sock with no mate, or one on it's last legs. I then run water over the sock portion on the palm, or cupped, part of my hand.
I climb on my step ladder and consecutively move each blade toward me and sweep from inner blade to the outer part with my damp sock.
I don't want to be going up and down the ladder. So this is why I position myself in a place where I am not underneath the ceiling fan, but have access to each blade where dust isn't falling on my head. However with the sock being damp, there isn't going to be much dust that isn't absorbed by the wet sock.
Then, depending on the shape the sock is in, I either wash it or toss it. Great for those socks whose mate remains illusive.
Now for your tips. Bring them on.
