A Man Need A Cave - My Bachelor Pad Reno Journey

Recommended Posts

You use left over tea leaves or???

Chinese tea right?

I tried fresh loose Chinese tea leaves and English tea bags. Less messy with tea bags and there is a wide range to choose from. Choose the scent you like and put them in the wardrobe, drawers, shoe cabinet . i tried bergamot, lavender, lemon tea bags. Pang pang: )

I only use cruelty free stuff if I can so I recommend

Method all purpose cleaner (I use it for my countertops to clean, the Selffix red one for solid top and then the 3M stainless steel cleaner to polish)...

The Method one is not bad already... I spray, leave on for about 3 minutes (usually go do dishes) then wipe down with magic sponge and then wipe dry with microfiber cloth...

I try to use less harsh materials on my top unless it's really a stain that cannot get out (which is rare esp for yours). I also clean after cooking every time one so don't need to be so powerful. Haha! Polish once every week. Then steam clean the floors hehe
