1. Scrubbing Spills On Carpet: Scrubbing merely untwists the fibers. Even if you remove the spill, the fibers will still look ragged. Blot first!
2. Using Furniture Polish Every Time You Dust: Continual use of product can create buildup over time. Give your pieces a break with a slightly damp towel instead of spray, wax or polish.
3. Cleaning Your Windows On Sunny Days: Even if sunny days make you want to be able to better see out your windows, they can be too toasty and sharp for the cleaners we use to remove the dirt. Windows are best cleaned on days less than 70 degrees.
