On the Road in March!

I feel like I start every one of these posts with the same kind of phrasing: “I can’t believe we’ve already gone through another month.”

But it’s TRUE! And here we are, having just finished out the first quarter of 2015. If you have a goal for this year, folks, get it done! Times a wastin’!

Lots happening here on the blog in the past month! Without further ado, here are the top posts:

How to Deal With a Dirty Dishwasher – A Guest Post!

The other day, I was unloading my dishwasher, when all of a sudden I saw a nasty rust-colored splat on the inside of the door. Eeewww! What in the world? (I eventually traced the mess to a cheap pan with a lip that held water and then spilled it back out rusty.) Got rid of that pan and got to cleaning my dishwasher up…and then I started looking around for any more junk inside the dishwasher. Might as well get them all cleaned up at once, right?

The funny thing was, not even a whole day later, I was contacted by blogger Pheeby Snow, who wanted to do a guest post on “How to Deal With a Dirty Dishwasher”. Perfect! I jumped at the chance! So, without further ado…here’s Pheeby!

Instead of doing the dishes by hand, you just put them into the dishwasher and you start performing another activity. However, having relatively clean dishes doesn’t necessarily mean that the dishwasher itself is clean too. As a matter of fact, it needs regular cleaning in order to work properly. When you have a day or two off work, you probably concentrate on vacuuming, dusting, sanitizing the bathroom and the dishwasher cleaning is, understandably, not among your top priorities. Take your time and get it clean – you will be amazed by the difference it makes.
