If the world’s greatest cleaning company rang our doorbell and offered to clean one room in the house, most of us would probably choose the bathroom. (The rest would select the kitchen.)

We all want a clean bathroom, but few of us jump up and down with excitement over the prospect of scrubbing in there. Fortunately, some out-of-the-box techniques can make things easier — and a lot more pleasant.

Watch this video from BuzzFeed Nifty to uncover 15 unusual but smart ways to clean the bathroom:

Keeping your bathroom clean and disinfected is not that hard to do… In fact, as you can see in this video, you can get a shining bathroom in no time at all.

Leaving your bathroom unattended for a day, week, month or any length of time will indeed become a serious health hazard for you, your family and guests.

Once you get your bathroom shining clean, it really helps to maintain the cleanliness weekly to avoid having such a bad buildup of slime, soap scum, mold, and mildew in your bathroom.

For products that are not my own - I usually purchase the products before I start a review or provide a recommendation. In addition, some product vendors provide me direct access to their products in order for me to properly complete my reviews. However, I absolutely DO NOT make any promises to them regarding the results of my tests or what I will write in my review.

Americans spend a lot of time in their cars, so it can be pretty unpleasant if they are driving around in a less-than-fragrant environment.

Fortunately, there are many potential fixes for the problem — and some of them are inexpensive and chemical-free.

Following are five do-it-yourself ways to get your ride smelling swell.

1. Open a box of dryer sheets

Over on Reddit’s “Life Hacks” forum, a contributor who goes by j-mt suggests storing an opened box of dryer sheets under the front seat of your car. He says it’s cheaper and lasts longer — more than three months — than an air freshener or even Febreze.

And he suggests a bonus feature of using dryer sheets:

“If you smoke, smell like the restaurant you just ate at, or just need a freshness pick-up, you can take one out of the box and rub it all over your clothes for a freshly laundered smell.”

2. Fill a sock with coffee

Love the smell of fresh-brewed coffee in the morning? Keep that pleasant scent lingering all day by creating a coffee air freshener for your vehicle. The folks at Instructables suggest filling a sock — or two — with coffee beans or even ground coffee.

Tie the sock closed, and put it under the driver’s seat. If you have a second sock, stick that under the passenger seat.

If you don’t have a spare sock on hand, a bag would work as well. Coffee beans in a paper bag is one of the clever ways flight attendants use coffee to banish nasty smells.

If you simply can’t get enough of the smell, you can duplicate it in your home. According to Instructables:

“… if you are looking for something pretty, then try this same thing only instead of a sock use a decorative bowl and only use coffee beans. In my office I have a bowl that used to have spare change and now it’s home for a half a bag of coffee beans. It makes the entire room smell amazing.”

3. Create a ribbon-and-cotton-ball air freshener

When Julie of Frugally Blonde shuttled her teen son and his friends to training sessions as the boys prepared for a mini-marathon, the experience opened her eyes — and tortured her nose.

“I honestly had no idea boys could smell that bad,” she says.

So, Julie broke out her favorite essential oils and — combined with a ribbon and cotton ball — created a car-vent air freshener. You can see the result on her blog. Julie says:

“They are not only cute, but because they go into the vent they make the car smell better than the hanging air fresheners. Plus they only cost a dollar or two to make.”

Essential oils aren’t exactly cheap on a per-ounce basis, but you can easily find them on Amazon, for example, for as little as $5 to $10 per bottle. Julie says she puts only four drops on a cotton ball. At that rate, even a small bottle should last you a long time.

4. Add essential oils to a clay disc

Kelly at Simple Life Mom suggests adding 10 to 15 drops of an essential oil to a clay disc. Once the clay has absorbed the oil, you simply place it in your car and enjoy the scented air.

“This method is so easy and actually lasts a long time. It’s probably my favorite,” Kelly says.

She uses a special-purpose clay disc that she says you can find at craft stores and kitchen specialty stores. But most any terra-cotta vessel — such as a flower-pot saucer you can buy for a buck or two at home improvement stores — can serve as an essential oil diffuser.

5. Pour a little baking soda

Sometimes, the best way to tackle a problem is to go back to the basics. Jenni of Sweet Pennies From Heaven suggests using baking soda, which has been eliminating odors of all kinds for generations.

Jenni sprinkles it on her carpets and seats, scrubs it in with a brush and lets it sit overnight before vacuuming it. She says, “It really helps take all the stink away that kids and pets leave!”

How You Live a Prosperous Life

By Randy Gage in Success, Prosperity.

What if you weren’t born in a rich family, don’t possess a genius IQ, or have the right social circle or degrees?  How do you create a prosperous life?

The surprising truth is, you don’t need any of those things to live a prosperous life.  Because a prosperous life is simply a collection of many prosperous days that you live one day at a time.  So how do you do that?

Here are some of the things that work for me:

Hello Randy! Thank you for your all post, and books (from Hungary)

Scarcity mindset is the problem.

We don’t have enough money for everyone, we have A LOT MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE.

And this is just apply on everything. Scarcity is a non-existent thing on this planet, despite the effort of the politicians, who hammering you with the opposite, in order to stay a sheep (or stay asleep).

It is all a big-big lie.

If you mind thinks there is not enough resources, it is not going to take effort to figuring out how to use those things to achieve prosperity. Not even going to notice it. And this is how you stay poor.

And this is apply on the whole universe, not just on this planet.

It is funny how people are talking about meteorite impacts, what can doom the earth. What if a 100lbs gold or diamond ball just slamming on the ground at your backyard with a note on it from God, which says “Merry Christmas”?

Depressions don’t change the demand. When the depression hit, there going to be a huge demand for cheap stuffs, used cars, etc. You can be a billionaire in the middle of the depression by producing those stuff.

People staring at a hill of gold and saying: poverty.

Let me say it in my language: helló!

Hello Randy – have a great day!

Hello …. “Smile it looks good on YOU”

Men’s Denim Buying Guide. With this guide, you’ll know how to buy denim that don’t just fit your inseam but your lifestyle, too.

When it comes to denim, it isn’t only the typical blue one that we are talking about. Denim has various types and we highly recommend you to try them all out because denim are one thing you can invest on without giving a second thought. So fill up your wardrobe with these cool denim:

Men’s Denim Buying Guide

Classic Washed Denim – 
The classic wash, a.k.a your average mid-blue jean color, is the safest and most acceptable hue. To get this look, raw denim is rinsed and then bleach added to soften the inkiness.  A classic wash is best for more casual jeans (relaxed fit and classic) worn for more off-duty occasions.

 

Vintage –
Designed for those who want good things – now, vintage wash takes the time out of breaking in a new pair of jeans (something that can take years and by this stage the jeans’ crotch has ripped open or waistband given way). Dubbed ‘distressed denims’, raw denim is put through vigorous rinsing (depending on how light the final color will be) as well as sanding at the seams, knees, and thighs.

 

Dark Rinse –
Dark rinse jeans are close to the original raw start of the untreated denim but have been washed once or twice to retain the color but lose the stiffness that comes with raw denim. Often with variation shading around the seams, knees, and pockets, the dark blue works like black trousers would do. A perfect color for skinny jeans with a light denim jacket or with a blazer in a classic fit for smarter casual times.

 

Raw/Selvage –
This is denim is untainted, unwashed, and wild. In line with its untreated mantra, the cloth is dense and rigid. Selvage denim is when the two ends of a roll of cotton are used to make jeans, from which only a handful of pairs can be made, and is signified by a pair of white parallel lines on the cuff. It’s a version of raw and is a unique approach to denim. Raw jeans are like antiques in that they can last for years, taking months to signs of wear and tear.
