Review : Rug Doctor Carpet Cleaner

Rug Doctor Carpet Cleaner Review 1

A couple of months ago, we got a professional company in to clean the carpets at work. Both my bosses regularly bring their dogs in to work and with moderate foot fall through the building, the carpets were starting to look really rather filthy. It didn’t help that the carpets were fairly poor quality to begin with and definitely not suitable for an office building. I was absolutely convinced that the process would be a total waste of time and money and not for a minute did I think that we would see an improvement in the state of the carpet. I have to hold my hands up here and admit that I was totally mistaken. When I came into work following the weekend that the cleaning took place I was utterly shocked. The carpets were unrecognisable. They had previously been covered with rather large stains and lots of marks and most of these were now gone. Granted they still looked like cheap carpets and were getting a bit thread bare in places but most of the staining was now gone. Read More…

Method Collaborates with Johanna Basford

Method cleaning products in collaboration with Johanna BasfordI really like to see brands that think outside the box when it comes to design and that is exactly what Method has done. The trendy home cleaning products brand launched way back in 2001 when two childhood friends, Adam Lowry and Eric Ryan, came up with an idea to revolutionise the cleaning world with stylish, eco-friendly products made with non-toxic ingredients. Eric knew people wanted cleaning products they didn’’t have to hide under their sinks and Adam knew how to make them without any dirty ingredients. And so the journey began. In 2002, Method enlisted the help of designer Karim Rashid to design packaging. Shortly afterwards the duo convinced Target to test its cleaning sprays and dish soaps in 90 stores before launching in Target stores across the US. In 2005, Method also launched in Canada and the UK. After successful launches in Australia, France and Japan, Method joined forces with Ecover in 2012 to create the world’s largest green cleaning company. Throughout the company’s development, they have stayed true to their mission to create products that meet the highest standard of social and environmental ethics but that also look damn good.  Read More…

Review : Washing Up with Joseph Joseph

Joseph Joseph WASH&DRAIN washing up bowl - In use

I’ve spoken in a previous post about how much I hate ironing, but how, with the right equipment, the task can be made a lot more bearable. Generally, if I’m going to spend a lot of money on something for my home I have always chosen to spend it on pretty, decorative items that will look nice and I’ve never really been one to spend a lot on the more functional household items. I suppose because I don’t get much enjoyment from these items, it seemed a bit of a waste of money. But I have recently come to the conclusion that it is well worth spending a decent amount on these ‘boring’ but essential items, after all we normally tend to use them pretty much daily and having quality items without doubt enhances the experience.
