ecc850156747287069b441bbecd69f87

In due course, wood furniture accumulates dirt that cannot be removed with usual dusting. When this occurs, some serious cleaning is needed. Try these cleaning techniques for cleaning up your wood furniture efficiently and safely.

Homeowners have long appreciated the toughness, beauty, and versatility of Singapore furniture and above all, they have valued its low maintenance. Such as the ideal indoor plant for brown thumbs, wood furniture continues to exist on its own, requiring minimal intervention. However, every time, as a result of wear and tear, it necessitates cleaning wood furnishings to refurbish its looks and ensure its durability. When that unavoidable moment comes, follow these steps to reinstate a wood finish to faultless condition without unintentionally causing damage.

Materials and equipment needed

• Wood wax 
• Sponge 
• Bucket 
• Clean fabric 
• Mineral spirit 
• Cheesecloth 
• Denatured alcohol 
• Dishwashing detergent 

If you are confident of the paint, stain or other treatment of your wood furniture finish, then using a proper cleaning technique for that particular wood furnish will be crucial. Otherwise, it is advisable to clean the wood dining table in stages, beginning with a mild cleanser that does not cause harm to the reliability of the finish, and then proceeding to a more strong solution only if the gentle one fails. Proceeding in this manner implies that you can securely clean wood furniture without realizing exactly what you are dealing with.

Step one 

Begin with the humblest of household cleaners such as dishwashing detergent.
Add a little quantity of the detergent to a cotton ball that is moistened, and then mop up it on an unobtrusive piece of the furnishings, like the inside of a chair leg. If the detergent tarnishes your furnish in your test area, then you can go on without the detergent. If the area you have tested does not indicate any damage, it is safe to continue with the cleaning. Make a mixture of water and detergent in a bucket and use the mixture to sponge down the whole piece.
Step two 

If you need to find out whether you can get your furnishings a little cleaner, you can try cleaning them using mineral spirit. However, it is important for you to test an inconspicuous part of moistened cotton ball since the mineral spirit needs to be harmless to your furniture. If you do not notice anything suspicious, wash the piece with dirt free fabric saturated with mineral spirit. Note that when using mineral spirits, work in a well-ventilated room. In many occasions, the mineral spirit can eliminate years of grunge. Complete by wiping away any remaining cleaner with water, inspecting the finish as you complete the task.

Step three 

If the furniture responded negatively when you tested the mineral spirit on it, no need to force things, just move on. Ahead of attempting any other intercession, you will be required to find out the kind of finish that is on your piece. Apply some denatured alcohol onto a cotton swap and test it in a small, unobtrusive part.

 

Deep Clean Your Face in Less Than 5 Minutes!

aid203982-728px-Clean-Your-Skin-Step-2-Version-2

If you think you must set aside a huge block of time to properly deep clean your skin, think again. Like many people, you may only deep clean your skin once every week or two. It seems like the kind of thing that only needs to be done every now and then, but the reality is that by deep cleaning your skin more frequently, you will be better able to ward off the signs of aging. Luckily, you don’t have to devote copious amounts of time to deep cleaning your skin. In fact, it can be accomplished in just five minutes. You just need to have the know-how and the right products handy.

Preliminary Steps 

First, make sure that you have everything you need ready to go. If you’re dealing with a limited amount of time, you won’t want to waste any searching for what you need.

If you’re deep cleaning your face at the end of a long day and were wearing makeup, begin by using a makeup remover to gently remove all of the makeup from your face. This is vastly preferable to simply washing it away later in the process, as makeup acts as a barrier and can prevent skincare products from doing their job.

Cleanse 

Using a high-quality facial cleanser, thoroughly wash your face. If you have oily or combination skin, stick with a foam or gel cleanser. If you have normal or dry skin, a cream cleanser may be better. Those who have acne may consider using a cleanser that contains salicylic acid. You may need to try different products to pinpoint the best face wash. Whatever product you use, begin by wetting your face with warm water. Apply the cleanser in outward, circular motions. Rinse it completely off, and then gently pat the skin dry.

Exfoliate 

Next, use the exfoliating product of your choice to gently remove dead cells from the outermost layer of the skin. In doing so, you will encourage faster cell turnover and production. New, healthy skin cells will be revealed, making you look and feel a lot younger.

Steam 

Here’s where the real deep cleaning occurs. Have a pot or kettle of boiling water ready to go, and pour it into a plugged sink or a bowl. If you’d like, throw in a few green tea teabags to enhance the steam. Steaming the skin is beneficial in that it opens and cleanses the pores deeply. It also helps you sweat out impurities from deep within the skin. Better still, it helps to hydrate the deepest and outermost layers of the skin while reducing the size of the pores. Hold your face over the hot water for two to five minutes. Drape a towel over the back of your head for even better results.

Moisturize 

Finally, finish out your five-minute deep-cleaning session by smoothing moisturizer onto the skin. If your skin is oily, use a gel or lotion. If it’s dry, use a cream. Try out emulsions too. They are especially useful in hot weather as they are very lightweight.

At first, completing these steps may take longer than five minutes. Once you’ve done it a few times, however, you’ll be able to fly through the deep-cleaning process in no time flat.

 

Renting with Locals; Making a Safe Choice

index

When visiting an area like Singapore, you can experience more of the country if you live like a local resident. To do that, you can rent a room from a person who is willing to host renters. A room for rent should cover your basic needs, but there can sometimes be safety concerns. You need to make sure you’re in a safe situation when you’re renting from someone you don’t know. While some concerns can be addressed directly with the landlord or homeowner, other concerns should make you rethink the choice of renting with this person.

Is the Property Safe? 

The room should be secure. You don’t want to live in a room that doesn’t have an adequate window or door lock. You could find yourself the victim of a theft or something far worse. On the other hand, the doors and windows should have easy access in case you need to exit the room in an emergency situation.

Along with good window and door locks, you want to make sure that the property has working fire and smoke detectors. While the number of fires has gone down in recent years, it’s important that you make sure you are protected.

In most cases, the property owner might have a key to your room since it’s a room in their home. You should assume that they have a spare key. Whether you trust the person or not, you should add your own security to the room. You can buy a small wedge for the bottom of the door while you’re in the room. This will keep unwanted visitors from using a key. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Finding a Good Landlord 

When you’re renting a room in someone’s home, you’re going to be in direct contact with this person. You should feel comfortable with the property owner. The best landlords are ones that are completely transparent and honest about the faults as well as the good things regarding the room.

Some renters would like a person to spend time with while others want to be left alone. The type of renter you are should coincide with the kind of property owner you choose. If you’d like a dinner companion most nights, you shouldn’t choose a landlord who is never around.

Keep Your Valuables Secure 

When you move into a room on someone else’s property, you should be concerned about the state of your valuables when you leave. With a key to the room, the owner might rifle through your belongings when you’re not there. A portable safe is a great thing for keeping your money, passport and jewellery secure.

It doesn’t make sense to carry a safe with you from wherever you live to the rental, but you can purchase one from a local vendor. The safe you choose should keep your valuables from being stolen while being easy to hide. You won’t be able to lock it down in the rental, but you can always keep it from being in plain sight.
