Last week, Eddy and I were invited to NYC to attend an event held by Liquid Plumr . We were treated to appetizers and a special Tool School for women, held by the Fantastic Tool belt Diva Norma Vally. While Eddy was skeptical at attending, he quickly found out that there were plenty of tips and tricks that he didn’t know. I don’t consider myself very hands on when it comes to fixing things in the house (thank god for Eddy and more importantly my Dad), but after seeing Norma break out the steps on how to fix a running toilet or install a new shower head, I felt like I could do the same thing. All it takes is a little preparation and understanding of what you are doing.
Also at the event, we got to see the newest Liquid Plumr products.
Liquid Plumr double Impact Snake and Gel system- This basically is all you need to remove any clogs, which happens once and a while at our house. Instead of buying a snake, Liquid Plumr includes one in the packaging. While it won’t help with clogs really far in the piping, it certainly does great job on sinks in the bathroom and kitchen. The Double Impact is now available at Target and Wal-Mart for $5.99.
Liquid Plumr Disposal + Drain foaming cleaner- this one is pretty self explanatory. It’s simple- following the instructions drop it in the disposal drain and let it do its work. All done! The Disposal +Drain foaming cleaner will be available in Feb 2012 for $3.99 in Target and Wal-Mart.
Before I finish this post I’d like to leave you with a quick and useful tip that I learned at the event. Eddy and I have slowly been upgrading our kitchen, and with that means purchasing stainless steel appliances. They are great to look at, but unfortunately really easy to get covered in finger prints especially with children. Here is an easy way to clean the appliances without having to buy a special cleanser:
You will need the following:
-Microfiber cleaning cloth
-all purpose spray cleaner (like formula 409)
-Stainless steel polish, petroleum jelly or mineral oil
This is what you need to do:
1) Spray the appliance with the all purpose cleaner and scrub the entire surface.
2) Wipe down the appliance with some alcohol on a microfiber cloth
3) Buff the surface with the oil based product (petroleum jelly). If there is a “grain” to the stainless steel, buff only in that direction.
