All cleaning products have pretty much been rendered ineffective in California. A friend who lives in the Sierras drives over to Costco in Reno to buy laundry and cleaning supplies. I found that adding a tablespoon of Oxi-clean keeps my front loader clean and since the laundry is not in a living area I leave the door cracked.

@cdeblake:

There are many light switches, called occupancy detectors, on the market, alas nothing cost only $10 anymore. When we built our house I eliminated as many cabinets with doors & shelves as possible and used drawers in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room. I will never go back to kitchen traditional cabinets again. I made my own dividers from ideas I found online so I didn't spend a lot of money and they work really well. this allowed us to eliminate upper cabinets in the kitchen too...I have a few floating shelves over one long counter to to hold pretty things and that's it! The kitchen is so light and bright without those looming cabinets!

Could you post a picture of your kitchen without cabinets and also the inside of a drawer? I’d like to see that!
