Baking Soda and Vinegar: In the Home and Garden

Like many of us, I like to keep a clean house. Cleaning my kitchen and bathroom sinks, counter tops and vanities once presented a challenge. How so? I refuse to use harsh chemicals, mainly because of my children's allergies and asthma. I also prefer an environmentally-friendly cleaning solution. I've found all this and more, by cleaning with a homemade paste I make from baking soda and vinegar. This all-natural cleaning solution removes most of my everyday stains and grime with ease. I just scour the surface with a scrubby-type sponge and it's a breeze. In addition to kitchen and bathroom surfaces, I use baking soda and vinegar cleaning paste on my parrot's cage. There are no harsh chemicals or fumes, so it's also perfect for cleaning the toddler's room. Try the same solution diluted with a bit of water to kill your garden weeds. You'll be amazed!

Why You Should Include Wrought Iron Plant Stands In Your Outdoor Design

When you want to update your landscape or patio areas but don't know where to start, you should consider buying wrought iron plant stands. Wrought iron plant stands are affordable, beautiful, and offer endless opportunities for decorative and accent options in outdoor areas. So if you want to create something amazing outside, you should know why you should include wrought iron plant stands in your design.

Personalized Accents

Wrought iron plant stands are available in a myriad of novelty, decorative, and containment features. This gives you the chance to include a personalized feel to your spaces outside, as well as tailor a living display to any-sized area.

Singular novelty or decorative plant stands feature the design of the plant stand, so small areas can be adorned with an adorable inclusion. Look for bicycle or cart stands if you want to add presentation in a singular focus.

Basket, box, shelf, or tiered are other plant stand styles that you can include on either patio areas or in configurations in the garden. Tiered stands give a rich appearance with a variety of plant textures and colors, and shelved stands provide the option of incorporating vines.

Easy Design

Plant stands offer the most accessible design options for areas outside, giving you a chance to dream a beautiful garden or landscape feature without excessive preparations. Wrought iron stands also give your pavement or patio areas needed relief from staining that comes with potted plants, so you can decorate without the mess. But there are two additional reasons you want to use plant stands for an easy design:

  • Easy Maintenance: Outdoor accents have to be able to withstand the elements, and wrought iron will hold up against all conditions you subject it to for a lifetime. Wrought iron doesn't have to be maintained at all, unless you decide you want to paint the stand and add an element of color.
  • Awesome Arrangements: Movable plant stands offer you the opportunity to make cascading arrangements in garden areas, as well as focal features on patio areas. The best thing about these stands though, is the ability to make arrangements and rearrangements whenever you want to freshen up the design.

There is a large range of prices for wrought iron plant stands, and you can even find used or antique versions that will give you the same rustic beauty that new ones have. So no matter what budget you have or size of space you need to decorate outdoors, you'll be able to find the right arrangement with wrought iron plant stands.
