Swoosh Your Sink, Zap Your Sponges and Flood Your Tub.


Buckhannon river



One reason we like the real estate business is that even though we have been around the block, we still learn something new almost every day.

We had a pre-settlement walk through on a new build not long ago and the construction superintendent was a font of wisdom.

 

 

 

 

 



Spring is comingWhen you need to re caulk your bath tub, cut out the old caulk,clean the area with rubbing alcohol and fill the tub with water before applying the caulk.

Water weighs a lot and will pull the tub down a bit, so that you can apply the right amount to the wider crack.

In the past I have noticed that some caulk jobs I did would pull away slightly from the wall when the tub was filled, but I never made the connection.

 

 

 


Spring is coming
Many people clean their sink sponges by putting them in the dishwasher.

This guy said he felt he got better results with maximum germ extermination by wrapping his sponge with a damp dish cloth and microwaving it.

Also, occasionally fill your sinks and tubs with  hot water and pull the plug, letting the water swoosh down the pipes.

This is supposed to help clean them out better than even a full force faucet flow of hot water...makes sense.

 

 

Why pay more and get less when selling your home? Jan and Steve Bachman of RE/MAX Gateway use professional photographers, create interactive photo floor plans, print full color brochures, and make an individual property website for your listing that goes out to 40+ public real estate search sites including Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow etc.

 

We also create a custom photo tour that is sent to other agents and prospective buyers.
