Here are a few easy home solutions you can try...


If someone in your house is a fan of slime, you probably have wished they weren't. Slime is primarily made of glue and most of it is washable. Try using plain white vinegar, on the area. It might take some patience, but you can get the slime out of your carpet!

Pet Messes

A handheld extractor (vacuum) can suck liquids from carpet and works better than attempting to absorb the mess with paper towels or rags.

garden pestsOne thing home owners face alone are yard nuisances. Often home owners are at odds with pests, insects as well as other types of yard nuisances and how to get rid of or control them.

Mowing over clover is futile at best since  it always grows back.

One way of getting rid of clover, if you're willing to sacrifice some of your grass, place plastic sheeting, or a large garbage bag, over the clover. Be sure to weigh down the edges so the plastic doesn’t fly off. Keep the clover covered for a few weeks. Depriving clover of sunlight and oxygen should help kill it as well as your grass!

Another method is to control it with a nitrogen-rich weed-and-feed formula.
