Mold in the Bathroom! Yuck! Enter the Tilex "Cancel the Mold Show in Your Bathroom Sweepstakes

Hello Neighbors!

Do you ever have mold and mildew show up in your bathroom?  We do!  We own an older home, and for some reason the mold seems to grow here faster than I have ever seen before.  We really have to watch the caulked areas around the tub and shower.  I think since the house has obviously "settled some", the tub is on a slight slant, so water seems to pool in some areas on the sides, encouraging mold growth.  I am constantly looking for new or different ways to stop mold growing here.

I have used vinegar to try and keep it under control, but it just never seems to keep it under control.  One time I used bleach with a spray bottle and I would apply it, let it sit for several minutes and then use a toothbrush to scrub it out.  It took several times of repeating this process. And of course you need to have a well ventilated room to do this.  Unfortunately our bathroom has no windows, a perfect setup for mildew growth, so I have to set up a fan to blow fumes out the door and out the bedroom windows when we clean. We usually soak the shower curtain in a tub filled with water and bleach and allow it to soak.  Then we rinse thoroughly and re-hang to dry.  We have to do this about twice a month to keep the mildew under control.  The boy's bathroom is set up the same way, with no windows, so we have the same problems there.  At least they only have a shower to wipe down!  We are actually considering re-doing all the caulking to see if this will help.  Any neighbor who has a suggestion please feel free to leave a comment.  If we weren't on a road trip, I would include pictures!

Now, Tilex has a new product out Tilex Mold Stain and Mildew Stain, Refreshing Breeze, that I think I might give a try.  And not only do they have new products, but to introduce them they are having a "Cancel the Mold Show in Your Bathroom" Sweepstakes.  Are you interested in entering?

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
