Tip of the Week - Carpet Kinks

Posted in 'Cleaning, Tips' on June 2, 2010

Moving a piece of furniture can have a lasting impression on your carpet - We moved into our house 4 years ago and there is still a kink in the carpet from where their TV unit used to sit.

You can get rid of the indent quite easily by holding a steam iron over the top of where the indent is. Don't let it touch the carpet or it will melt, but the steam should penetrate the fibres, allowing them to spring back into place.

Then fluff them up with a brush and the indent should have disappeared!

To remove rust from knives or other kitchen utensils, stick them in an onion for about an hour. Move the blade back and forth to help the onion juice do its work.

Tip of the Week - Excel Tip

Posted in 'Tips' on June 29, 2010
If you need to search for something within your excel spreadsheet, you don't need to search sheet by sheet. When you CTRL F to bring up Find and Replace, click on Options, then click on the dropdown menu for Within and change it from Sheet to Workbook. It will now search your entire workbook for you and list all of the places your searched item can be found.
