8 Things a Child Knows about Vacuum Cleaners that you don’t

Vacuum Cleaners

My mother tells me that when I was a kid, I thought the vacuum cleaner was some kind of monster that made an awful sound and came on every now and then, especially because I was instructed to keep out of its way. Now that I’ve grown up and all, I still dread the vacuum cleaner, however for entirely different purposes. If there was a list of most-hated household chores that I do, it would without a doubt include vacuum cleaning, maybe deep down the dread still lies there!

I have compiled a list of things that even a child would know about a vacuum cleaner but you probably don’t. Of course there is no need to feel embarrassed at the fact that you don’t know basics about vacuum cleaning. At any rate, here goes:

1.    The Mask!
a.    Main Takeaway: Emptying a vacuum cleaner? Use a mask

Unfortunately I am neither referring to the movie (though the idea of whizzing around with a green face is so tempting!) nor am I referring to the masked superheroes. This refers to my encounter with idiocy when I opened up the vacuum cleaner after a while and got severe allergies with the fine dust. So yes, wear a mask before you clean the cleaner has to be the first tip.

2.    A Stitch in Time
a.    Main Takeaway: Keep your vacuum cleaner well maintained

Yes, we know the countless amount of times we have heard or been nagged about doing stuff in time, and that its easier to do it now and save the trouble later. This is what we probably teach our children but don’t always practice ourselves. It would save you a massive amount of trouble if you keep cleaning the vacuum cleaner regularly, which includes removing its parts and washing them etc.

3.    Boom! Wham! Kaput…
a.    Main Takeaway: Make sure you keep you cleaning tools - clean

Those are the sounds your vacuum cleaner is going to make when it goes bust, because you haven’t cleaned it in a while. Okay maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But really if you want to make your vacuum cleaner last longer and be more effective, clean the brush roll to remove lint and stray threads etc, and also lubricate it.

4.    Thank you Captain Obvious!
a.    Main Takeaway: Dust before not after vacuuming

So this one may seem fairly obvious, but since I have managed to forget to do so every time and ended up frustrated, here goes. It’s usually a good idea to dust everything down BEFORE you start vacuum cleaning. This way you won’t stop every two minutes to dust and then clean and so on.

5.    Carpet Magic
a.    Main Takeaway: Sprinkle Talcum Power on Wet Spots  

Again I am not referring to Aladdin’s magic carpet, but a tip my mother gave me, for what she used when I had a habit of suddenly emptying my milk bottles on the carpet as a kid. If left there to soak, it ends up making your carpet smell horribly, so what you do is to sprinkle talcum powder on that area of the carpet and then vacuum it. Want another great way to make you room smell great while try, vacuum scents they are a great way to make vacuuming more of an experience and less of a chore.

6.    Do you really pull a cat by its tail?
a.    Main Takeaway: Don’t pull a vacuum cleaner by it’s cord

As most kids know, by experience or out of sheer observation, you don’t pull a cat by its tail. In the very same way, I would advise not to pull a vacuum cleaner by its chord, which could cause it to rupture and create a problem for you, especially while its on. The Miele Vacuums are able to take a lot of strain and are quite durable Miele Vacuum even when pulling the vacuum, so if you mess this rule up with a Miele vacuum you are still safe.

7.    Don’t play with sharp objects!
a.    Main Takeaway: Picking up sharp objects will lead to a broken vacuum  

A lesson most children would know but we sometimes forget, is not to play with sharp objects. This means don’t think you ought to pick up the glass you broke with your vacuum cleaner, because really that would be a terrible idea, trust me.

So there you have it, a set of obvious facts about vacuum cleaners and using them, to make sure the machine doesn’t think you aren’t smarter than a 2nd grader!

14 Misconceptions About Sewing and Sewing Machines

Sewing and Sewing Machines

2. Sewing is Just for the Very Creative
People generally believe that people who sew are extraordinarily creative and talented, which is the second misconception. Sewing is something, which has to be learned, and hence, anyone can learn, practice and become better at sewing.

3. Sewing is So Complicated
The second myth leads us into the third misconception of sewing being too difficult a feat. Although designing and sewing is an intricate process, manuals and practice help people become better and more adept at sewing. In fact with the computerized sewing machines of today sewing has never been easier!

4. Sewing takes up All my Time
The fourth delusion regarding sewing is that it is extremely time-consuming. In reality, sewing can be done gradually over time and does not require the person to work lengthy hours.

5. If I Sew it will Look Homemade

The sixth common misconception about sewing is that can be termed old-fashioned and anti-feminist. Sewing at home is still common, and feminists from history have sewed.

7. My Sewing Machine will Need to Be Oiled
A misunderstanding related to sewing machines is that they need to be oiled regularly. This seventh misconception can be disregarded as many machines today do not require such measures.

8. Sewing Machines are Too Expensive
The eighth myth is also in relation to sewing machines – that they are too expensive. Sewing machines actually have a variety of price ranges in the market.

9. Thread Quality does Not Matter
The quality of the thread does not matter in the stitched work is the ninth myth. Poor quality thread can give poor results.

10. This Bent Needle will Not Cause a Problem
The tenth misconception is that bent needles can be used and do not cause problems, whereas, in reality they damage the fabric.

11. Sewing Over Pins is Absolutely OK
Sewing’s eleventh misconception is that sewing over pins holding the fabric does not constitute a problem. In truth, the needle could be deformed and fabric could be damaged.

12. I Don’t Have to Take any Precautions Before Sewing
Rayon is a common fabric, and it is said that it should always be dry cleaned before sewing. This is the twelfth misconception because some rayons do not wash.

13. Fusible Interfaces and Good Fabric Do Not Mix
The thirteenth misconception states that fusible interfacings should never be used on a good fabric as it does not take into regard that technology has made these interfacings much better.

14. Sewing Needs to Be Perfect
The fourteenth, and last, misconception is that sewing has to be “perfect” in order to be good. Someone does not have to be a professional to sew well.

With so many misconceptions about sewing and sewing machines it is easy to see why people get into a standstill when attempting to pick one out, or even choose sewing as hobby to pursue.

10 Things the Pros Can Teach You About Cleaning

Imagine this, you walk into your place and as you fall down exhausted on the couch, you think that at this moment if the genie would grant you one wish you’d ask him to get someone to clean the place and make it sparkle.

The problem is if you want something done, you’ve got to do it yourself. As soon as motivation starts building up to go tackle that pile of dirty dishes or do the laundry, usually you end up thinking of how much time it’s going to take, and how your never proven OCD might kick in at the wrong moment, dragging you to clean everything that comes in your way, but leaves you so tired, you don’t think about cleaning for another year. 
So here is how we suggest you can tackle a few

Major issues about cleaning that could brighten your days, as well as your floors.

“A bright person can always think of something better to do than housework. —Ruby Lou Barnhill” - Tweet this

Now most people think hey there is no rocket science about cleaning, which is true; but there are many ways, that can make it an easier task, so here are 10 things the Pros can teach you about cleaning:

1.    The circle of life, oops I meant cleaning:
a.    Main Takeaway: “When Cleaning start from one specified area and end with an end in site “

Vacuum Cleaners and Accessories
Ever cleaned around a room and ended up forgetting where you started from? Did I sweep that area, did I vacuum under that sofa or didn’t I… Hmmm. So one of the first things that the Pros would like to share with you is that to start with one area and clean everything that comes in next before moving to the next spot. This way, you’ll remember the one point from which you started and not have to run back and forth either.

2.    To and fro is the way to go:
a.    Main Takeaway: “Always clean top to bottom”

See how we make it sound fun? Doesn’t it remind you of Snow White cleaning away at the Dwarfs house? Yeah anyway coming back to the point, the Pros actually say that there is a way to clean, so for example clean from one side to the other, and more importantly, clean from top to down. This way you’ll be able to vacuum the dust that comes off later.

3.    Divide and rule:
a.    Main Takeaway: “Divide between dry work and wet work”

This policy really works just as well when it comes to cleaning. So apart from thinking of your cleaning work like I have to do the bedrooms and then the kitchen and then and then… and so on, you could divide it in terms of dry work and wet work. So dusting and vacuuming etc is dry work, whereas cleaning the bathroom and kitchen sinks etc is wet work.
4.    Bed comes first
5.    Main Takeaway: “Make your bed first, it will give you motivation to finish the rest”

This one I’ve heard from my mom as well, of course it wasn’t like I listened to her when she nagged me to make my bed every morning, (my logic was it was useless because it would get spoiled anyway next time I went to sleep!). But really, its tried and tested, it makes a world of difference if you clean up your bed first, even if you don’t have time for everything else.

6.    It’s a living room, not an obstacle course!
7.    Main Takeaway: “Arrange you furniture in a way that makes it easy to clean”

As much as it might please you to keep your furniture in the best ‘aesthetic’ way, sometimes practicality can save you a lot of trouble. When arranging your furniture try to arrange it in such a way that it makes it easier to clean without pulling things out of their place and back again, this includes keeping spaces in between furniture to help you vacuum.

6. Organization realization:
a.    Main Takeaway: “Prepare cleaning material before you start cleaning”

By this we refer to every time it strikes you that your brooms and dust pans and mops ought to be in one place, and the wish you have that you didn’t have to spend half the time finding those odds and ends you need to clean. The pros thus recommend keeping a rack or caddy full of cleaning tools you may need and carry them around, like you see professional cleaners doing.

11. Quality Vacuum Cleaner
b.    Main Takeaway: “To save time get a quality vacuum cleaner”

All of these tips are a great way to systematically improve your professional cleaning skills, but if you really want to turbo charge your cleaning ability – get a vacuum which is well suited to the job and use what the professionals use – Ie) Miele Vacuum Cleaners or SEBO Vacuum Cleaner

8.    Whose gonna do the dishes today?
a.    Main Takeaway: “Soak dirty dishes in water”

The most dreaded item right after a meal is usually whose going to do the dishes, mostly ending up in a fight over who cooked and who has to clean, and who did it the last time. The pros recommend making washing dishes easy by placing them in hot soapy water before the meal ends which makes cleaning them later a piece of cake.

9.    Address your issues… Oh I mean your drawers.
a.    Main Takeaway: “Declutter closets and drawers”

According to the Pros, the reason you have all that clutter lying around in your bedroom usually is because your drawers and closets are over-flowing and the items end up in any place free in the room, whether its your bed or side-table. The idea then is to do like a spring cleaning and throw out everything you don’t mean to use or wear to create extra closet space.

10. Lost… or found?
a.    Main Takeaway: “Keep a Lost and Found Box”

Well it may sound like the most obvious thing, but keeping a lost and found sort of box at home helps out such a lot, by keeping clutter and things stacked away, which you can’t think where or to who it belongs, and which ends up on couches and sofas, until one day the owner turns the house upside down looking for it.

So those were some tips from the Pros on how to keep the tension lax and half your place cleaned up and sparkling in a jiffy, like they show in all those jazzy advertisements with the spotlessly clean kitchen you thought you’d never have. So there you have it all the things that the tips tricks and secrets of the pros keep to themselves when it comes to cleaning. Hopefully you will learn and grow in your cleaning adventures, and be even better then pro at cleaning your house.

Unfortunately this is not the case a bigger hoop can not be put on a embroidery machine, and there be an expected increase in hoop size.

Putting a 5" x 7" Embroidery hoop on the machine with not increase the ability embroidery work area/ability of the machine, the work area of the Brother LB6800 PRW Embroidery Machine will continue to be - 4” x 4”, even if a larger hoop is put on it.
