I keep a small trash can outside
my back door in the garage that I tell myself I am just going to put
paper trash, junk mail, empty bags so that I put it in the right
garbage can outside. One morning when I was taking out that trash a
smell overtook me. Sure enough a piece of stinky trash had made its
way into my little garbage trashcan and that odor had really
penetrated deep into the material of the can. We carry lots of odor
absorbers, but only one that has soap cleaning base it’s called
Fresh Wave. We bought Fresh Wave at the last National
Hardware Show and I really like the fact that it is completely free
of harsh chemicals, it’s all natural ingredients, and it has a
light pine scent. I put
Fresh Wave Laundry Fresh Wash
into the stinky can and filled with water and let it sit while I went
to work. When I came home, I rinsed out the can and took a deep
sniff into the can, no odor but a light pine fragrance. I used it on
a sponge that was brand new but had been left in the sink with
decomposing strawberries (okay I am being very transparent) and since
it was a new sponge I didn’t want to throw it away. I poured the
Fresh Wave onto the sponge, let it sit for a day and when I
returned home and rinsed out the sponge and it had no smell.
makes “Fresh Pod” that is a refillable case that
is perfect for trash cans, closets, diaper pails, lockers, boats and
RV’s any little tight space. It has an adhesive backing so you can
adhere it to any flat dry surface and provide continuous odor
Fresh Wave has all kinds of answers to stinky
situations, and it’s made in the USA.

Question: I know you wrote about the
Dorcy light- so do you think it would be a good light for the
Answer: Yes I do, but remember it is
on a timer and it will time off if you are not in front of it. I
think it would be a perfect light for when you first get in the attic
to get you to the lighting you already have installed. It would
light the way.
Question: I am going to start the New
Year off right this year! I am going to try and keep the bugs and
pests out of my house on my own instead of using the pest control I
always have. Give me a step by step of using the
Answer: Good for you and it’s so
easy to do. Spray with the
Shoo Fly all around the baseboards
and window sills inside the house. Spray the doorways going outside.
If you have small pets, or small children
Shoo Fly is safe as
soon as the
Shoo Fly is dry (about 20 minutes). If you will
spray every 90 days you will not have any problem with ants, roaches,
scorpions, any little crawling thing will die after walking over it.
Question: Trudy since we are not using
the AC unit in the house as much since it is cooler, do I have to
change out the filters ever 30 days anyway?
Answer: If you are using a Merv 6 -8
pleated filter you should be able to go 90 days without changing out
your filter. If that falls during this season of the year, I would
still change it out because dust is still in the air and when you
turn on the unit you want the filter to be able to keep the dust from
off the coils. If cleaning the coils is what you need to do, use the
K.O. Dirt Blaster. It will melt off the dirt and dust on the
coils and keep the unit running efficiently.
