I’m thinking about starting a window cleaning business in the Tampa Bay area, does anyone have any tips?

Write a coherent business plan. Have at least 6-9 months worth of cash reserves to keep the company liquid, as it will take a period of time for you to become recognized and referred.

Also, take your biz plan to your local banks, and see if they will loan you money. If not, find your local SBTDC at the community college so that you can link into SBA loans and programs……

Good Luck!!

how do you clean the oven door on a self cleaning oven?

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

the self cleaning feature doesn’t take care of the inside glass door? The stuff is sort of baked on now and I’d like to clean it without causing damage, plus i read not to use oven cleaner in a self cleaning oven?

SOS pads or try using the cream for Ceramic stove tops and a soft scrubber. Have you tried a soft scrubber and baking soda and vinegar? No matter, without harsh chemicals, you will need to use some elbow grease.

You should be OK so long as your grout is properly sealed.

I hate cleaning window tracks, are there any tips out there that will make it easier?

It depends on what you are cleaning out of the window. If it is just dirt , use the hand held attachment of you vacuum cleaner to suck the dirt out.

Is there such thing as oven cleaning spray for self cleaning ovens?

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

I know this sounds like a really dumb question but I rent a house with a self cleaning oven in the litchen. The landlord informed us that the previous tenant used an oven cleaner for regular ovens and it did something to the inside surface of the oven ( left a stain or blemish )The landlord says he does not know if it is now safe to use the self cleaning feature now but only wants us to use a cleaner safe for self cleaning ovens. All the oven cleaning sprays I can find say not to use on self cleaning ovens.
Does such a product exist and if not…is it safe to use the self cleaning feature now?

check and make sure that none of the enamel in the oven is chipped off,easy off makes a oven cleaner for self cleaning ovens but if the inside is not chipped should be fine to use the self cleaning mode reaches temps of over 670* if you feel the oven is unsafe your landlord can purchase a new one for around $249. that is if he or she owns it and you just rent, good luck! hope everything works out for ya!

how does your husband help at housekeeping, cleaning and educating the children?

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010


He is amazing… He does dishes, takes the trash out, sweeps & mops, vacuums, takes the diaper pail out, cleans and makes bottles, does laundry, and even cleans the bathrooms occasionally…

He has off on Fridays while I am at work and my munchkin is in daycare so he takes the time to do the household chores so that we get quality time together in the evening and on Family Day Saturdays…

i would like color my grout white to make it look new, but i am stumped at this "pre-cleaning" step?

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

The grout is in my shower.

Is this cleaner good enough for the pre-cleaning, it is:

ZEP Commercial "Professional Strength"
Grout Cleaner & Whitener
on the label it says "Caution: THIS IS A VERY STRONG ACID PRODUCT"

Get you some good rubber gloves. Never used the product so I can’t say how good it is (or isn’t), but if you have that kind ov warning, get gloves.
