Listeners email - “Hi, Angie from Springfield again. Getting caught up on the podcast. Just want you to know I appreciate you both SO much! All the stuff I need to know but was afraid to ask is here. I really loved your episode on to replace or repair. Oh, and the saws… I have to go back and listen to that one and take notes because it is chock full of helpful info.”
Anyway, re: workplace development. Maybe you could hang around hospitals and clinics. I know a lot of nurses who are completely done with nursing right now. They’d probably be open to a whole new career🤣. Jk (not really..).
Amy and Alicia talk about using Ramboard (a special cardboard)as floor protection when having a renovation done. This will protect the floor better than just a drop cloth.
Cleaning that usually doesn’t get done…but should
- Washing out the trash and recycling containers
- Vacuuming your mattress. Even airing it outdoors in the sunshine can help with musty smells
- Wiping down the walls with a Swiffer (or a napkin)
- Cleaning your deck but not with a pressure washer.
- Washing the dishwasher - clean the dishwasher screen, clean sprayer arm ports, clean the dishwasher door lip, run a cycle with dishwasher cleaner and no dishes or detergent.
- Clean the splash guard on the garbage disposal
- Clean the chimney. If heavy creosote buildup is present, hire a professional
- Clean door knobs and light switches, refrigerator handles and cabinets pulls and remotes. Use alcohol wipes.
- Use a little car wax to clean and shine stainless steel appliances.
- Clean your keyboard. Compressed air and a cotton swab with alcohol.
- Clean the magnetic ports on computers using poster putty.
Alicia recommends checking out "engineering gadgets" on Instagram to see some fascinating inventions.
