Jen. T of Versailles KY says:  “I need TheMotherStucker’s help!  I didn’t realize how dirty my house was until I started trying to clean finger prints off everything.  MotherStucker, do you have an easy way to clean prints off doors, trim and baseboards?  Disposable wipes are not cutting it –  I’m starting to think it  would be easier just to paint again…”

Put the paintbrush away Jen!  Instead grab an old toothbrush and a clean rag.  This is no sweat!  Using any OxyClean type product powder (usually comes in a tub) make a warm water/OxyClean solution in the bottom of a bucket.  Saturate the toothbrush and attack the most stubborn fingerprints (hardly any elbow grease necessary).  Get the rag damp in the same solution and simply wipe the surface down.  Like new  – XOXOXO!

Go Skunk Yourself

I love my dog.  I love my hubby.  However today I almost cut them both loose. 

Before hubby left for work at 5AM he let out the darling pup to do her business.   As sweet dog returned from the yard, hubby explains he noticed a slight stench of skunk outside that smelled “distant”.  Exit hubby via work commute.

Enter canine into the master bedroom after her morning potty break.  I honestly have no idea how long she lied next to me while I slumbered.  My best estimate is 60 seconds max before I completely lost my shit.  It should be noted at this point that I am not a morning person.  Let it suffice to say there was a extensive amount of cursing, thrashing, and overall mayhem as I tried to figure out why my nose holes were burning. 

After searching the house for whatever the hell might be “smoldering” I realized the stench got stronger every time the dog approached.  At which time I also noticed said puppy had the same painful expression on her face as I wore on mine.   She appeared to be suffering from smelly invasion – except that she was even closer to the source (herself!) than I cared to be.

So she got sprayed by a skunk – now what?  I tried every suggestion I could find on Google including a tomato juice bath and  a homemade baking soda solution, both of which were useless.   I gave myself a break from bathing the dog and went grocery shopping where I stumbled upon the solution that saved the dog and my hubby from certain relocation.  I am now “Petastic/Skunk Odor Eliminator’s” biggest fan!

“Petastic/Skunk Odor Eliminator” contains a powerful enzyme blend that eliminates skunk odors for pets, fabrics, and all water safe surfaces.  It is safe, effective, and economical, plus guaranteed to work.  http://www.petastic.com, 800-592-1900.

Tell TheMotherStucker About You:

8 Steps to a Sparkly Tub

1.  Check manufacturer instructions and cleaner labels to make sure the cleaners won’t hurt your tub.

2.  Fill the tub approximately 3 inches above the highest jets with hot water.

3.  Add 1/4 cup of a low-foaming disinfectant (such as powdered dishwasher detergent) to the water. (Calgonite or Cascade powder are good choices.)

4.  Add 1/2 cup of household bleach to the water.  If bleach is not advised, use 1 cup of white vinegar instead.

5.  Run the jets for 10-15 minutes. Set the jets to the highest pressure.

6.  Drain the tub and refill it with cold water.

7.  Run the jets for another 10 minutes as a rinse.

8.  Drain the tub and wipe the tub clean with a soft cloth.  Repeat cleaning as necessary.
