Blog: Take The Stress Out Of Housecleaning
A shop vac is good for more than the garage

Do you have pets and you find dog and cat hair that is clining to your furniture? How about kids that love stuffed animals and the hair from the animal gets on everything? Do you live in an area that is dusty?

Recently, I found out that my husbands shop vac is my newest tool for 'inside' the house!I wanted to give my furniture a cleaning boost before the holidays, However, my rug shampooer just wasn't strong enough to do the trick. Due to time restraints, I didn't want to run to the hardware store to rent a furniture shampooer, so what could I do?
I thought that if the shop vac was good enough to use on the car upholstery, it sure should do the trick in the house. So I pulled it in from the garage and thought I would vacuum the furniture with it and save time.
To my amazement, it pulled off all of the animal hair (one dog and two cats worth) from the upholstery and made it look brighter.
I then washed the upholstery and vacuumed off the water. The suction was so strong, that it not only pulled every ounce of water out, but brought up the fabric to its original look!
It may be summer before he gets his shop vac back again, I am heading for the mattress next!

Jan's Website:


Fun Things To Do

  • Fishing Lake Michigan
    Whether it is by boat or off the pier, there is nothing like getting that first Coho or King.
  • Grandchildren are fun
    Making memories for your grandchildren of all of the fun times they had with grandma and grandpa is one of the best memories you will make for yourself too.
  • Camping
    A tent, a firepit and sitting in the woods is a campers dream. We spend a lot of time camping in Northern Wisconsin and I have tons of camping recipes to share.

TV Shows

  • American Idol
    I am hooked on this show, nothing interrupts me when this is on. By the time they get to Hollywood, I already have the top ten picked out.
  • Last Comic Standing
    I love to see how these people, take the judges advice and change their tactics to become great comics, instead of just a comic.
  • House
    Now really, isn't he the kind of doctor you want on your side? He always has a reason for his actions, he looks until he finds the cure and he has flaws just like the rest of us.
  • Any home make over show
    I get some of my best ideas off of these shows and I also find things that I wouldn't dream of doing to someone elses home. I will admit, there are times that I wish they would call me and ask for my help!
