Is $35 enough to pay to keep you away from using your sick days at work. Well that’s how much it costs for s touch less UV toothbrush holder. How often do we think that we could be getting sick by our toothbrush? Most of us put our toothbrushes in a holder that retains moisture and begins to form mold and many germs at the bottom if not rinsed out each day. If you don’t believe me take the time out after reading this email to look at the cup or container that’s holding your toothbrush. Yuck right!? Also if one person in your house is sick and we are all putting our toothbrushes in the same holder where it is moist…. Bacteria and mold begin to grow immediately. Look at the bottom of your toothbrush, the part that you hold, does it show signs of black mold? I suggest buying a touch-less UV toothbrush holder. It eliminates 99% of germs and bacteria that can start growing on a toothbrush in 7 minutes. The UV-c lamp also known as a germicidal UV emits sufficient doses that eliminate dangerous microorganisms that make us sick. They are sold at many places like Wal-Mart and target for under $35.
Research shows that allergens such as dust mites, drool, mildew, mold and many human factors make our pillows unhealthy after 2 or 3 years. So I suggest that we replace our pillows every 3 years at the max. In between that time toss your pillow in the dryer on the highest hottest setting. Add a few new tennis balls to fluff them and rid of some allergens. When was the last time you bought a new pillow. I know its so hard to get used to a new one but you should really replace your pillow every 2 years. Most people think that because they change the pillowcase that they are fine, but that is not the case. When we are sick we lie on that pillow, hung over, strep throat, flu, etc… We lie on our pillow. Think about that the next time you change your sheets.

Most germs go untouched in the trash can in the kitchen. This leads to the spread of germs, bacteria and sometimes even maggots. So before you put another trash bag in the trash can take the trash can outside and spray it down and wipe the inside and outside with your white distilled vinegar and hot water solution. The more often you do this the less often you have to scrub and soak the trash can. Get into the habit of spraying it down every time you take out the trash bag.

Front load washing machines are great for many reasons. They use less water and seem to be able to handle a larger load of clothes than most older top loaders. However the mildew smell is a common problem with these new machines. The reason we tend to get a mildew odor is because the water washes differently than a top loader that drains all the water from the bottom and sides of the machine. After a cycle of washing the front loaders tend to leave water in the rubber inner lining of the opening which most of us forget about and it sits and builds up causing mildew. Take a few steps to erase this problem. After each load wipe the inner rubber lining of the machine with s mixture of vinegar and water to soak up any extra water and to disinfect and kill mold build up. Then leave the machine door open to dry out any water left behind. If this becomes routine in your washing cycle you can forget about the mold smell ever again.

Every time we eat out of a plate, drink out of a glass, or use utensils we wash them. Then why is is that most of us who say their animals are like family do not wash out their animals food and water containers. Our animals get sick just like we do. So I suggest that every day before you fill up that water and food container for your pet to eat and drink out of that you PLEASE wash it out with a mixture of hot water and vinegar solution. Scrub all the grime off and rinse well. Your pets will thank you for it. Which bowl would you rather eat out of?

Paper bags are not better than plastic bags at all! They both use a ton of natural resources and cause a significant amount of pollution. The only way to fix the problem of paper and plastic bag consumption is to bring your own recyclable bags to tote around your shopping. It takes 400 to 500years for plastic bags to break down so make a difference today and tote instead of plastic or paper! Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T
The first toilet brush was made of animal hair and was shaped in the form of a Christmas tree. The bristles were made from hairs of the ox, badger, squirrel and horse. After years of re creating the toilet brush, finally in the 1930s the final toilet brush universal decision was made. In the early 1800s the toilet brush was made to erase germs from the interior of the toilet since disease and illnesses were spreading rapidly. Today the same is true for the brush. It is supposed to help clean the inside of the toilet bowl. However in 90% of household it does the opposite. It becomes a breading ground for germs bacteria mold and odor. Most toilet brushes are held in an air tight container that after you dip the brush in the toilet to clean it you set it in this container to store it. Most toilet brush holders do not have holes in it for air and it becomes a breeding ground for germs. One way to keep the toilet brush and it’s holder cleaner is by leaving a cup of white distilled vinegar in the holder. The vinegar will kill many types of bacteria that tend to grow in the holder and on the brush. However remember to empty and refill the vinegar solution at least once every two weeks. Keep a bottle of white distilled vinegar in the bathroom for this reason. Ikea sells toilet brushes and their holders for a dollar so to replace it can be extremely cheap especially when we think of the dirty place it has been.
Above is a picture of a beautiful bathroom that was cleaned by Penny’s Personal Touch however this toilet brush holder is breeding germs and we replaced it.

It is spring time so not only does that mean spring flowers, spring weather and spring cleaning, it means spring pests. Such as ants, rodents, and bugs of all sorts. One way to stay on top of preventing these unwanted guests into our homes and garages is to keep all animal food in an air tight sealed container. It is so tempting to just rip open the bag and pour as you go, but the scent of the food is attracting pests more than the animals we are intending to feed. The paper bag cannot stop sharp little mice teeth and claws from attacking it. Those pests now have a place they know food is always available. They will set up camp in our homes and garages to not only eat but live. The container store sells air tight pet food containers specifically made for pet food. I suggest every household with pets invest in an air tight sealed container today rather.
The attached photo is of a clients tub that they could not get clean for years. That is until they asked Penny’s Personal Touch to service their home. The right side of this tub is the before and the left side is the after. It took our team no chemicals just our Penny’s Personal Touch Services knowledge of knowing how to clean a bathtub without chemically treating it. The clients that own this bathtub expressed to me how they had poured bleach in the tub and scrubbed with every cleaner possible. This took our team 5 minutes and no chemicals. Think of all the grime that builds up in your tub. Some of us wash not only ourselves in our tubs but our pets too. We at Penny’s Personal Touch know the right steps to disinfect and polish to keep a germ free environment without using chemicals. Most older bathtubs have these circles in the bottom that attract grime and are very difficult to try to clean with any cleanser no matter how you scrub. However the picture below shows we have mastered the art of cleaning the impossible even without using chemicals.

Our kitchen and bathroom drains are rarely cleaned that is why they tend to let out a horrible odor, especially when the weather warms up. I was taught how to clean my clients homes drains the eco friendly way by the water management department in Round Rock. Ingredients needed are 1/4 cup Kosher salt, a cup of ice, a glass of white distilled vinegar and baking soda. FIrst pour 1/2 of the salt mixture down the drain, followed by the ice cubes, the remainder of the salt, then the baking soda and distilled vinegar. It will immediately bubble because of the chemical reaction between the vinegar and baking soda so flip the switch to the disposal and let the ingredients do their job. If you have a double sink be sure to do one side at a time. The salt will act as a corrosive to clean the drain walls. The baking soda is an odor absorber however when it reacts with the vinegar it helps to stir up the ice and salt to scrub the walls of the drain. The vinegar is acidic for the cleaning and tackles the odor again after the baking soda. No animals, humans or environments were damaged in this cleaning.
