Best Substances to clean the sink

The Lemon

The lemon is also very effective to make your sink stainless steel. Soak a sponge of lemon juice and scrub your sink. You can also use lemon leftovers to rub directly your sink.

Chemical Yeast

Sprinkle your sink with a little baking powder. Soak a sponge with cold water, rub, then rinse. The result is surprising!

The Black Soap

Black soap is very valuable to remove grease residue from your sink. Put a small amount of black soap in a paste (soft) on a damp sponge. Rub and rinse!


Our grandmothers rubbed their sinks with a piece of raw potato or peels. They left to act for a few minutes, rinsed and then wiped with a soft cloth.

Baking Soda

Pour into bowl 2 tsp. Baking soda and add 1 tsp. Water. Apply this mixture to the sink using a circular sponge. Rinse thoroughly with the same sponge wet with warm water and wipe with a soft cloth.

White Vinegar

White vinegar will also be useful for making a sink shine. Soak a sponge of white vinegar, rub and rinse.

Citric Acid

Finally, to clean a stain well stained, use citric acid. Dissolve 2 tablespoons of citric acid in one liter of warm water. Use gloves and protect your eyes. Rub your sink with this product and a sponge. Rinse thoroughly.

If none of these work for you then I would suggest getting the wife to go down to the hardware store and consult them on what to do.

Cleaning the Living Room

carpet rip outUgh, this weekend has been a pain in the ass!  I just had to write a quick post about it as I recently remodeled my living room and had a lot of cleaning to do.

If you are ready to remodel or clean your living room or want to change things to look like you want, then take the time to consider if you know how to do the job because there are specific factors that are incredibly important if you want to do it right.

Before starting, make sure you keep reading cause I will share some tips.

The cleanup was a nightmare as there was a ton of pet stains on the carpet from my dogs.  I never realized how bad it could get.  I ended up just ripping out the carpet and replacing it after consulting with friends about it.

A professional carpet cleaning company could definitely help, but my carpet was just too far gone.  I know of a great company in Cornelius NC that specializes in this kind of stuff.

Lesson learned, and that is to clean up pet stains as soon as they happen.

tackIn order to rip out the carpet first, you have to detach the carpet from the tack strip that holds the carpet in place.  You can start in the corner and just use pliers to rip it out.

Then just rip it by hand and fold the carpet into 3-foot strips that are easy to cut and carry.

Then you will need to take out all the staples on the plywood and decide whether or not you want to keep the tack strip.  If it’s rotten then just trash it but if not then keep it as you can reuse it with the new carpet.

Some stuff that you will need for this job is pliers, dust mask, kneepads, safety goggles, utility knife, and gloves.  So head on down to the local hardware store and get to work!

The best way to learn is by doing they say.

How To Choose A Motorcycle


I’ve always been a fan of motorcycles, ever since I was a kid riding my dirt bike.  Although I can’t feel the wind through my hair anymore lol, I still love to hit the road and go for a ride as often as I can.

My friends always ask me for tips on how to pick a motorcycle so I figured I’d write an article about it.

What’s Your Skill Level?

Have you ever even ridden a motorcycle before?  If the answer is no then to stay away from anything too powerful especially if you’re a smaller person.  Newer riders will want to stick to a bike that’s light, has a low seat, has ABS (anti-lock braking system), is cheap and basic.

The lighter weight will make balancing and be steering the bike much easier and the lower seat height will allow extra security by allowing the feet to touch the ground.

If you’re an experienced rider on the other hand then you have a much wider range of bikes that you will be able to handle.

Types Of Motorcycles

In general, there are 4 main types of motorcycles which are scooters/mopeds, street bikes, offroad bikes, and dual-purpose bikes.  There are much more subcategories of course but these are the main ones.  So which category should you pick?

Well, that depends on where you will be riding.  If your riding off road then obviously you’ll want a bike for that.  If your riding on the street then a Harley, crotch rocket or touring bike should fit your needs.  If you’re the type of person that is just going to ride it to work and back in the city then a scooter/moped might be just the thing for you.

Making A Decision

Overall you want to put the information together and come up with the best solution based on your needs/goals.  It’s important, to be honest with yourself about your skill level and of course stay within the budget that you have.
