Resolve carpet cleaner to clean grout

imageI have been wanting to clean the grout between our kitchen tiles for the longest time. I saw some concoctions on Pinterest using baking soda and vinegar, some using hydrogen peroxide and some using ammonia!  Yuck!  I would prefer not to use ammonia just because of the smell. As you can imagine it seemed quite a tedious process so it’s no surprise I kept putting it off.  Then I saw a pin using Resolve carpet cleaner. I decided to give it a try and it really worked. Just spray, wait 5 minutes and scrub with a brush. Wipe away with a cloth right after brushing. Although it would be nice to try the more natural approach using the baking soda but this is good if you want a quick remedy!

Garage sale glider makeover

Glider

You know those beige corduroy covered cushions a lot of gliders have? Well I forgot to take a before picture but I got this glider from a garage sale and yes it had beige corduroy cushions. They were not too bad but a little beat up. I just picked up this scrap of material for another project but I used it for the glider instead. It’s not my favorite print but it will do for now.

Oh and I almost forgot the most important part…they’re no sew cushion covers. I just used “Fabric Fuse”!  You can get it at any fabric store.
