Cleaning Glass Tiles 
Glass tiles have come a long way and aren’t just tiles used for a flashy backsplash anymore. They are quickly gaining in popularity compared to ceramic tile because of their unique appearance. 
These tiles can be used in just about any room of the house and come in many different colours and a variety of beautiful designs. 
Glass tiles are durable and offer a rich quality and shine. They are opulent, resistant to staining, and easy to wipe clean. That being said, glass tiles make it easy to see fingerprints, footprints and water marks due to limescale. Because of this, more frequent cleanings are needed to maintain a gleaming surface. 
Generally, glass tiles are easy to clean and maintenance is minimal when cared for properly.

Laminate floors are made out of wood composite (materials like sawdust pressed together) but looks just like solid hardwood flooring. Plus, it's often cheaper, easier to install, and comes with a clear protective layer on top.

Cleaning blinds is a laborious task that requires time and patience, especially when it comes to cleaning the outside of them which is hard to access. To keep them in good condition, follow these steps and use them regularly, and frequently wipe your blinds to keep them looking like new. 
Steps to follow: 
• First, consider what material your venetian blinds are made of. This way you can use the right product to keep them in perfect condition. If you're not sure, ask at the store where you plan to buy the cleaning product to avoid damaging the material and keep it for longer. 
• Before cleaning your blinds, first use a hoover or hairdrier to remove all the dust this will avoid a lot of work and effort later. It helps to close them to get the worst of the initial dust off both sides.

Crumbs, sticky fingers, spilled juice and unidentifiable odors: These are most definitely not a few of any parent's favorite things. 
And yet, between your fifth trip to the park and a car ride to daycare, your car, and your kid's car seat accumulate all of this not-so-fun stuff. 
Why It's Important 
Kids' car seats are probably a lot filthier than you think. In fact, a 2014 study revealed that they have twice as many germs than an average toilet. After taking swabs from 20 cars and homes, scientists at the University of Birmingham discovered about 100 potentially dangerous bacteria and fungi on every square centimeter, compared to just 50 specimens on a toilet seat! 
How to Clean your Windows 
Everyone knows that cleaning windows properly is not an easy task. Here are some tips to help ensure you have beautiful, clear windows every time. 
Keep in mind when you are cleaning windows that you don’t use anything harsh or abrasive on the glass. It’s also a good idea not to wipe or scrub at dry glass. This can scratch it without you even realizing it.  
Be sure the glass is wet or the cloth that you are using is damp. Don’t scratch at spots or stains on the windows. If you have something sticky (such as sticker residue), try something like Goo-Gone (available from Amazon) to remove it and then clean the windows normally. 
How to Avoid Streaks 
Getting Stains Off Wooden Worktops 
When it comes to stains on wooden worktops, it has to be said that prevention is always better than cure. 
It may be that the stains on your worktop are concentrated into the high traffic areas (ie. areas where you work most often) or they may be general and widespread across the whole of your worktop. If the stains are general and widespread across the whole of your worktop, there is little doubt that a full re-sand and re-finish will work out more effective and more efficient, both time and cost-wise. 
That said, if you only have random stains here and there, you should be able to tackle these and remove them effectively without going to the extent of a complete re-sand and re-finish. Generally speaking stains on worktops fall into two categories: surface and deep. 
Most surface and deep stains are caused by trapped moisture. Generally speaking if the stain is white, it’s only on the surface, if it’s black or dark, it has had a chance to penetrate deeper into the wood.
