    Meriwether is absolutely right in picking colors for the light of your room. You might start with sample boards of BM Annapolis Green and BM Spring Thaw to see how they look in your light.

    Prince 55,

    Thank you for the lovely compliment. The ceiling color is Benjamin Moore Annapolis Green & the wall color is Benjamin Moore Spring Thaw. As always please check colors in your own environment prior to painting!

    Hope this helps,

    The glass decanter is for water only. It is one of the owner's pieces, and I don't know where it is from.

    The floor tile is Floorgres geotech in white available through Tile x Design in the twin cities. We purchased this 4 years ago. At that point I only remember one finish available. It is rated for a floor but not heavily textured.

    My best,

    Thank you for the question. I know of no kit for this. I do however,as part of my services, work with clients about clearances for all of the appliances they purchase.

3. Use cold water. The care labels on your clothing tell you the hottest setting you can use, but this doesn’t mean you must use these temperatures. Using the cold cycle will clean most clothes sufficiently and won’t cause your clothes to shrink or fade like hot water can. If necessary, add a detergent booster containing sodium percarbonate.Cold water works for most items, but feel free to make an exception and use a hotter setting for dirty towels — especially the ones used on the dog.

3. Laundry room. Start by cleaning your washer and dryer. Then move on to decluttering, tidying up and incorporating resources like a small mending kit and a folding drying rack for more efficiency. Cap this off by adding style and creating a routine to stick to in the future. Get the seven-day plan for an organized laundry room

How Often Should You Clean a Washing Machine? Most manufacturers recommend cleaning the washing machine once a month, although a quick internet search and survey of friends and family will confirm that the majority of us are still wrapping our heads around the idea of cleaning the machine. Others, though, clean theirs even more often. “I have a separate cleaning cycle as an option on my washing machine and run that cycle after I wash cleaning rags every week,” says Becky Rapinchuk of Clean Mama. Fortunately, the process is fairly painless, especially since the machine itself does most of the work.Find a design or remodeling pro to help with your laundry room project

9. Set up a beach-towel drying spot. Instead of tossing wet beach towels directly in the washer, allow them to dry first. The sand can then be easily shaken off, instead of clogging up your washer and dryer.10. Wash the washer and dryer. Run an empty wash cycle with white vinegar instead of detergent. Carefully clean the rubber areas around the washer and dryer doors, plus inside the doors. If your washer or dryer has sand inside, allow the appliance to dry completely, then vacuum the interior using an attachment.

Day 1: Deep clean the washer and dryer.Cleaning tasks: Today is the day to get your appliances clean inside and out, so they will work more efficiently and get your clothes cleaner. Cleaning the washer:Use a damp sponge or microfiber cloth to clean the exterior and inside the lid of your washer, paying special attention to rubber seals.If your washer has a lint trap or removable detergent dispensers, take them out and clean them with warm, soapy water in the sink. If not, use cotton swabs to get the gunk and grime from the corners.Pour a cup or two of white vinegar in the washer and run it on the hottest setting, without any clothes in it.Cleaning the dryer:Wipe down the inside and outside of the dryer with a damp sponge or microfiber cloth. Remove the lint filter and use a narrow vacuum attachment to remove built-up lint from inside the space where the lint filter goes.Unfasten the dryer hose from the back of the machine (check the owner’s manual if you are not sure how to do this) and use a vacuum attachment to remove lint from the hose and the duct.
