5 Tips For Creating a Romantic Night and Fun Dinner at Home

Valentines Day is just around the corner and maybe you're already thinking how to make this occasion really special. Here are some ideas for a romantic and fun dinner at home either for several couples or just for two.
Sensual Scents
Whether planning for one guest or several couples, let robust spices (think cloves, canela, cardamom and black pepper) help set the mood with the help of a standard frying pan. Toast the spices just to their smoking point, and the room will fill with an inviting--and delicious--bouquet.
Pairing Is Caring
When prepping for a perfect evening, pairings are a fun way to turn any meal into a special occasion and spice up the fun. Plan three courses and pair each with a small cocktail. A fun and easy way is to use one base spirit in three different ways.
Make It A Group Effort Let your guests in the kitchen and encourage them to enjoy the tactile sensation of the food as it is prepared. Start the party early and enjoy cocktails as you cook.

Advantages of Hiring a Cleaning System

If you prefer to do your own housecleaning, but you don’t have the time nor the inclination to do it, then you might consider having someone else do it who’s an expert in their field. Someone who knows how to maximize both your time and their time by using only safe, green cleaning products available today for the average household. Such a service is hard to come by; however, with some cleaning services, you’ll think that Mom did the cleaning for you. 

If you are like us, you insist on the very best for you and your family. Let’s see what are some of the things you absolutely cannot compromise on… 

Maid Right EnviroShield® A Revolutionary Disinfecting Process

A Fully Safe Green Job 

Using only hospital-grade cleaning products and a HEPA-rated backpack vacuum cleaner, common bacteria and viruses like H1N1 and E Coli are eliminated by up to 99 percent. If you take a deep breath, you’ll notice that even unpleasant household odors have disappeared. 

It goes without saying that there should be an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rating of Category 4 on the cleaning solution--that means it’s the highest rating available. Moreover, it's safe enough for your children and family pets. 

When Green Means Really Green

As the lady of the house, you’d probably call for no cross-contamination protection. There would be no danger of finding a bathroom wash cloth on the kitchen counter. The latest microfiber cleaning cloth technology reduces household bacteria by 99 percent as opposed to traditional cleaning cloths that reduce only 33 percent of bacteria. Each microfiber cloth should be color-coded to ensure no cross-contamination transfers from one room to another. 

Homeowner’s CheckList As A Minimum

Knowing you are a detailed person wanting detailed work, here are the minimum requirements that any cleaning system should offer you. 

Every Room: 

Dust window sills and ceiling fans
Clean and polish entry glass doors/interior windows
Clean blinds/baseboards
Vacuum clean all carpeted floors/stairs 
Vacuum clean all furniture and under cushions
Change linens and make the beds


Disinfect toilets, shower stalls, shower curtains, tubs and counter tops 
Polish all fixtures/glass shower doors
Use color-coded microfiber cloths and mop pads 


Clean microwave oven/glass plate--inside and outside
Clean stove tops, burners and stove knobs
Dust/clean light fixtures
Disinfect counter-tops and sink area 
Wipe cabinet doors


A quality cleaning service reflects the flexibility to reschedule on short notice and a responsibility in carrying out your wishes. You should feel comfortable in knowing that if you do not want a room entered or cleaned, your wishes are respected. 

Cleaning systems such as EnviroShield® by Maid Right are hard to come by, but they are well worth considering when thinking about getting help with your house cleaning chores...

How To Choose a Quality HVAC Professional

Florida is known for swampy days, lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. The worst feeling is the air conditioner going out in the dead of summer. Even the breeze off the water does little to cool the house. Here are some tips to choose a quality heating and cooling professional.
Family and friends are a great place to start looking for a Riverview FL heating and cooling professional. They can tell you who they loved using and who they didn’t. A flashy website or radio ad may sound good but talking to people and reading testimonials can give you a better idea on whether or not they deliver on their promises.
An HVAC contractor shouldn’t give you with an estimate over the phone without properly inspecting your insulation, air conditioner or vents. How can they know how much work is to be done without ever looking at your unique situation? An inspection shouldn’t cost you anything.
If the HVAC contractor has a website, see if they post their licensing and c…

Cancelling Timeshares: When to Do It

Sometimes buying a timeshare will seem like a great idea upfront, but turn out to be something that doesn’t quite fit into your budget. In these circumstances, it’s important to consider how to get out from under a timeshare.
Why Cancel Timeshares
Sometimes timeshares aren’t what anyone thought that they would be. The pitch sounds good and so you sign up. While there is usually a period of time where you are allowed to rescind the contract. A few days to a couple of weeks is usually the timeframe that you have. If you decide after that point in time to cancel, then you may have to go through a longer process. Still, one of the reasons that people get rid of the timeshares is because it doesn’t fit into their budget. If this is you, then there are ways that you can get out from under it.
Timeshare Cancellation Services
Timeshares are notoriously difficult to sell. There is little control over timeshares. Likewise, there are fees that you have to pay, regardless of whether you use the pro…

3 Tools to Help Special-Needs Students Thrive

Learning is not a one-size-fits-all system. Students with physical, mental or learning disabilities often benefit from an unconventional approach to education. These three tools can help them get through each school day with a sense of achievement.
1. Rules and Rewards
Rules provide a necessary amount of structure to a child's day. Stating rules and expectations clearly and having a visual reminder of what those expectations are will help kids navigate their choices. Placing a colorful list of rules up at home or in the classroom can be really helpful. Pairing rules with rewards for good behavior is also a great motivational tool. It helps kids learn that actions have consequences and empower them to make good choices.
2. Tactile Tools
Though many classrooms cater to an auditory learning style, not all students thrive within that kind of environment. For kids with visual or auditory impairment or for kids who have trouble focusing on their schoolwork, getting through class can be e…
