One of the most frequent asked questions about the enclosed fan we installed in Steph's office (and in my sewing room) is "How do you clean the blades?"
Since Steph doesn't really clean, she's more of a tidier, cleaning the blades hasn't seem to be a priority for her! But since the question was asked, she set about to show you how it is done.
It doesn't happen very often, but we sometimes have to revisit a project. This time, we had to tweak the PVC pipe gate due to damage it sustained.
With few exceptions, there are very few unannounced visitors to Steph's backyard, but recently there have been a few neighbors back there. It was nothing bad, they had come into the yard to look for their cat. Unfortunately, the gate was broken in the process. You see, the gate opens inward, but the neighbors pulled it out causing damage. The damage was extensive enough that we had to take it down to make repairs.
It's been a year since we first used the 30% vinegar/salt/dishwashing soap solution, but the weeds were back. Are they new weeds or ones that were not killed the first time around? We don't really know, but we do know, that in a couple of areas the weed growth has been effectively stunted since the first application.
That first post has been extremely popular and has generated so many comments and questions. In this video/post, we answer some of those questions.
Here's part 2 of using this method.
Yeah, that title expresses truth about Steph's floor. Yes, she's spot cleaned because she is not a total cavewoman, but mopping the entire floor has never been on her to-do list! The greyhound living at Steph's house pushed the need for daily cleaning because shed and drool happens!
Hoover sent us four different ONEPWR cleaning tools recently. We used three in a previous video, but felt the ONEPWR floor cleaner warranted its own closer look video. The floor cleaner, we felt, would be the perfect tool to help Steph manage the care and cleaning of her floors.
Take a look at this cordless cleaning machine.

Steph and I were introduced to the Hoover ONEPWR system at a conference in the summer of 2019. The bandana wearing puppies in the booth drew us in, but it was the ONEPWR system that kept us intrigued.
After yet another frustrating experience with my corded, heavy vac, I said enough is enough and purchased a ONEPWR stick vac last fall. I kicked that old vac literally to the curb and haven't looked back!
When Hoover asked us to showcase some of their newest pet products, we said 'yes' without any hesitation. My experience with the stick vac has been positive and I was sure we'd find the same ease of use and quality with these products.
Follow along as we share our experience with these tools and how Hoover has helped us to "simplify pet life" which is sorely needed as Steph is the pet parent of Mac, the greyhound, who does shed---a lot!
