Home Staging or Decorating Tips and Tricks - Part 3
When painting decorative trim and molding and dipping your brush straight into a paint can – do as Martha does. Place a rubber band around the open can so you can wipe the excess paint off the brush and not the side of the can every time you dip. This keeps the can’s lip clean – no build up of paint to have to clean up.
Use boiling water and two teabags to clean hardwood floors. The tannic acid in tea creates a beautiful shine. Let two teabags steep in the boiling water for a few minutes. Pour the tea into a bucket. Take a soft cloth and wring it out in the tea. The cloth merely needs to be damp, not soaked. This will enable the floor to dry quickly. Wash the floor and be ready to be amazed by the sheen... and no sticky or oily residue! So cool, must try!
