Paint, Budget, and Just the Facts.

I responded to a comment about a year ago, concerning Color Place (Walmart) paint. Her complaint was the quality (was not the culprit) of this paint. However, when she gave various symptoms...bubbling, peeling, using more paint (than the higher ranking paint brands)....Before I go any further. A few facts about me that relate to this issue....I was (forced) to retire at age 45. Adult ADD was the cause. So, I'm making my way on a SS Disability pension currently (I'm 51 y/o now). You learn quickly that you have nowhere near the income you were making. Hence, the ability to maintain a home nicely, now becomes fully controlled by budget....Now, I'll continue. Starting February 2012, I've been remodeling, painting, repairing, etc. my home. With an open mind and a restrictive budget. Here's the facts. This lady did not have her walls and/or paint in a proper state. I told her that the walls have to be prept. Correctly. They were not. Based on her information, these walls were in a terrible state. The walls were in a repulsive condition. Oily, pitted, and on and on..I mean a disaster. As far as paint prep went, she thought a few dozen stirs did the trick.....After "thoroughly" mixing my Color Place paint. I have painted approximately 40% of my house with Valspar. Absolutely, no issues with it. However, based on the cost, I had to cease and desist using it due to budget restrictions. Hence, my continued painting project had to be continued with a lower price paint....Color Place....Mixed it with a 18 Volt cordless drill and a paint stirring rod. Result...Flawless !!...Still have some to go yet...Like the title says..Paint, Budget, and Just the Facts. Thanks for reading.

Clean carpets yourself with a carpet steamer

Keeping your carpet clean can be a real challenge, and having a cleaner come to clean the carpet can be very pricey. A few years ago I invested in a carpet cleaner and use it every other week to clean the carpets in the main areas of my house and it is the best thing ever!

To begin plan a time that you will be able to spend to clean the carpet and allow it to dry. The carpet can take up to 12 hours to dry. I like to do it before bed because then no one will be walking around the house over night. Start by taking all the furniture that you can out of the room that you are going to be cleaning. Once the room is empty you will be able to see where the main traffic areas are in a room and gives you an easier time to clean the room without all the obstacles that the furniture creates.

When the room has been emptied it is time to prepare the carpet steamer. Following the steamer’s instructions fill the tank with hot water, and the detergent container with carpet cleaning detergent according to the instructions. Make sure not to use too much detergent because this can actually result in your carpet becoming more prone to getting dirty faster rather than being more clean for longer.

Replace the containers to the carpet steamer and start using the steamer in the farthest part of the room. Moving slowly backwards towards the entrance of the room avoiding walking on the newly cleaned carpet. Rinse the carpet thoroughly to make sure that you get all the detergent out of the carpet.

When you have finished all the rooms that you want to steam, if you have a dehumidifier it will help to make the drying go faster. You can also turn on the air conditioner to dry the carpet. It is very important that you make sure the carpet is dry before you move the furniture back into the room, especially if you have wood furniture because it can stain the carpet.

While the carpet is drying you should avoid going into the room that has been steamed because you don\'t want to track dirt into the room. What you can do if you really must walk on the wet carpeting is wear clean socks, or plastic bags on your feet. Once the carpet is dry you can move the furniture back into the room and enjoy your new clean house.

Hi, we have a Kenwood VC620 Vaccum Cleaner. Can you plz let us know how we can remove the cylinder to clean it up. Thanks.

  • hi i think
  • If the spot remover you use alters the color of your carpet, try touching up small places with artists' acrylic paint. If acrylic paint doesn't work, try using a felt-tip marker or a permanent-ink marker of the appropriate color. Go slowly, and blend the color into the fibers.
  • To raise depressions left in a carpet by heavy furniture, try steaming. Hold a steam iron close enough for steam to reach the carpet, but don't let the iron touch the fibers, especially if they are synthetic, because they could melt. Lift the fibers by scraping them with the edge of a coin or spoon.

How do I attach and use the shampooing attachment so I can clean my couch?
How do I attach and use the shampooing attachment...
Posted by rottylvr on May 08, 2008
I have a Kirby Vacuum and Carpet Cleaner that I know how to use, all except the attachment that I am not sure about. I am not sure if it is a vacuuming attachment or can I attach it and use it to clean my couch, I do not have the user guide for my vacuum as I got it from my son's ex girlfriend in lieu of money she owed me. It looks like it should be used for shampooing things like stairs and furniture, but for the life of me I cannot figure it out! Can you please help me? Tell me how to attach it if it is supposed to be used to clean stairs and furniture or tell me where I can find the user guide to look at and see how to use it......Oh by the way I have a 160 pound rottweiler that tries to live on my furniture and my couch is in desperate need of cleaning, this is my only day off and I have spent all day cleaning carpets due to my dog and would love to clean my couch before returning to work and putting my dog in the back yard now that it is warm enough for him to be outside all day.
Desperate to reclaim her couch

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. My suggestion is that you contact the Kirby Co in Cleveland listed below and they will instruct you either to down load a owner’s manual or they will mail one out to you, there might be a local Kirby dealer in your area that might have a manual as well. Also, there is a separate shampoo head that will be in the owner’s manual, you remove the vacuum head and bag assm and attach the shampoo head, make sure you use genuine Kirby shampoo for the carpet. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
