Toilet Cleaning and Maintenance

Toilets can pose challenges to homeowners. Understanding the rudiments of toilet maintenance and care can spare homeowners needless heartache.


First and foremost, as with any chemical cleaner, read the label and all instructions carefully. Any product labeled “disinfectant” will have an EPA number on the label that authenticates the claim. If it’s not a disinfectant, it won’t kill bacteria, fungus and viruses, and that’s the object, isn’t it?


To effectively clean inside the bowl, the water level must be lowered. There are four different ways to accomplish this: 1. Using your toilet brush, push the brush end quickly in and out of the hole. The water level will go down. 2. Fill a bucket with a gallon and a half of water and pour it quickly into the bowl. 3. Turn the water off behind the bowl then flush the toilet. 4. Using a plunger, force the water back through the hole and beyond the trap.

Once the water level is lowered, spray the insid ...

Shop Smart at Farmers' Markets

There are more than 3,000 farmers’ markets operating in the United States currently, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, generating in excess of $1 billion annually. Is there any difference between buying from a chain supermarket and your local farmers’ market? Yes, says E Magazine, the online environmental magazine, for a number of reasons, not the least of which is your family’s health.

Aboutproduce.com has boiled down the benefits of eating more fresh fruits and vegetables: reduced risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, obesity, and some types of cancer, including cancer of the stomach, esophagus, and lung.

Yes, but… don’t we get the same nutrients from the produce sold at chain supermarkets? Not exactly, says Lola O’Rourke, a registered dietician in Seattle and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. “Fruits and vegetables contain their highest levels of nutrients when harvested fully ripe and eaten soon aft ...

"I Need 20% Down" and Other Home-Buying Myths About Mortgages

Think you're not ready to unlock home ownership yet? That the financial hurdles are too high? You may be short-changing yourself. Many of the things renters believe about home-buying are myths.


Here's the real deal.


Myth: I Have to Put Down 20%. :(


Saving 20% of the price of a home in many places isn't just a challenge; it's a roadblock. And it's not a must-do. Roughly 60% of home buyers put down less than 6%. How can you become part of the "less-than-20 club"?





FHA Loans: The Federal Housing Association (FHA) is an old friend to first-time buyers and others who are ready to become homeowners with less than a 20% down payment. If you qualify, you may be able to get a loan with as little as 3.5% down.






DownpaymentResource.com and NeighborWorks: Some local and state agencies sponsor down-payment assistance programs that help prospective home buyers in different ways. Follow the links to find out if any are available ...

Kids' Rooms: Storage Solutions for Every Age

Here’s how to organize kids’ rooms from cradle to college.
Cradle Crawlers


Transformer cribs. An ordinary crib accommodates baby for two to three years -- until he learns how to escape over the rail. Boost storage with a convertible crib with storage drawers ($145 to $350) that’ll convert and adapt to your toddler’s needs and beyond.


Some convertible cribs change into toddler beds, daybeds, or full-size headboards, giving you options as your youngster gets older. If you can’t find a crib with storage below, use the space between the legs for stowing bins or baskets for diapers, toys, and more.


Pimping the closet. Remove the door on the nursery closet for easy access, and install a variety of cool storage features. Drawers, bins, and shelves can round up onesies, booties, baby towels, diapers, and toiletries. A simple wire rack storage system is $90 to $350 at home improvement centers.


Install lower rods so baby, as ...
