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!

2 Key Considerations When Renting A Storage Unit

While moving isn't exactly the most fun experience for some, it doesn't have to be as stressful as you might think. All too often, jobs end up transferring you from one place to another or you are forced to move to help take care of a family member. Whatever the case may be, you can always turn to a storage unit to store all of your belongings and put an end to the confusion and chaos of where to put all of your stuff. Not sure how to decide on which storage unit is right for you? Consider the following to help you make an informed decision.

Think about how long your items are going to be in storage.

While some might know how long their items are going to be in a storage unit, others don't. If you aren't sure, try to guess to the best of your ability. For example, if you are relocating to another area due to a job transfer, it might only be a few months until you find a new place to live on a permanent basis. On the other hand, others who are taking care of a family member with cancer might have their items in storage for a year or more.

The key thing to remember is you want to make sure the unit is in solid condition and can withstand whatever the elements might throw at it throughout the year. If the unit looks like it needs repair work, you wouldn't want your precious belongings inside it during a torrential downpour or a blizzard. The condition of the unit is crucial when choosing where to place your belongings, so spend time checking it out and doing a thorough inspection before signing any paperwork.

Consider the location of the unit.

Another thing to consider when renting a storage unit is their location. If you need to access your items, you want to make sure it is somewhere that you can get to within a reasonable amount of time. You don't want to have to travel four hours just to get one tote out of storage. Centralized locations make the best solutions for anyone who is storing their belongings, even for a short period of time. You never know what you might have to get out of the unit next week.

By taking the time to plan ahead, you can make your storage rental experience a positive one. Contact a professional storage company, like Preferred Storage, for more storage rental information.
