put Rain-X on shower doors to make water bounce right off

Put Rain-X on your Shower Doors to Make Water Bounce Right Off One of the most annoying cleaning tasks in the house is cleaning water stains and soap scum off of shower doors with a squeegee every time you shower. However, if you use a little logic and realize that your shower doors are glass, just like your car windows, the same glass treatment spray can work on both. The Manly Housekeeper says he's been using Rain-X on his shower doors—originally meant for windshields—and has had nothing but good results. "The shower spray beads up and runs down, so much less water stays and dries on the glass door," he says. You'll have to reapply the coating every few weeks or so, but that's a whole lot less work than wiping down your doors after a shower.

how to clean baseboards and keep them from getting dirty in the first place. It doesn't matter how much you scrub your floors; if the baseboards are grungy, the room will never look clean. Here's how to tidy up these dirt magnets without breaking your back. I confess: I veryrarely clean the baseboards in my home. The job is just too big and I can't imagine when I'd carve out a whole afternoon to get down on my hands and knees to scrub these seemingly endless strips of wood, which seem to attract dirt and dust like a magnet. But it's those finishing touches that give a room that polished look. The truth is, baseboard cleaning doesn't have to be so daunting. Frequent touch-ups and preventive maintenance are key to avoiding a big job down the road.Here are a few tips for taking the toil out of cleaning your baseboards. - Do them last Wait until the rest of your floor cleaning (sweeping, mopping) is done, then tackle the baseboards. They're likely to get even dirtier as you kick up debris from the floors, and doing the baseboards last will save you from having to do them twice. - Vacuum them Vacuum the baseboards using your brush attachment. The baseboards should be totally free of hair, dust and any loose dirt before you wash them. Pay particular attention to the floor around the baseboards, which is where most of the floor's dirt tends to accumulate. - Spray them Working room by room, spray the baseboards with an all-purpose cleaner.I use this homemade cleaner, and it works wonders. Be careful not to soak your baseboards or get too much water on the wall behind them, as this could cause damage to your drywall.Let the solution sit for about 10 minutes. - Rinse Using a damp sponge mop with clean water, wash the baseboards. The mop is convenient from a logistical standpoint, especially if you have a bad back; you don't have to get down and dirty, so to speak. But really tough marks may still require you to get on the floor and scrub. If the stains are stubborn, just scrub harder, but refrain from using anything abrasive, like a scouring pad, on your baseboards. - Protect them Once your baseboards are clean and dry, take a new dryer sheet and wipe it over the wood. The anti-static cling property of the dryer sheet will cut the amount of dust that sticks to baseboards. In fact, each time you sweep and vacuum, go over the baseboards quickly with a dryer sheet. If you have shedding pets, you'll want to do this regularly. This preventative maintenance will go a long way.
