Fixing Frustration: Lemons!

When Life Gives You Lemons . . .

Well, it’s our last Fixing Frustration blog for this week and we’re going to end with a bang. Or rather, with lemons. So let’s look at the noble lemon and how it can help you in three great ways.

Rust Spots on Utensils

When you find that your stainless steel knives or utensils are getting rust spots, lemon’s are the solution. Get some lemon juice and fill a tall glass with it. Next, put your knives/utensils into the lemon juice and let them sit there for a few minutes. After they’ve soaked, remove them and scrub them with a sponge and water; you should find that the rust spots come off with no problem.

Hard Water Stains

It doesn’t seem like water should cause stains, does it? Unfortunately it does, but a lemon sliced in half will fix this problem. Use the lemon like a sponge and scrub at those stains – the acidic lemon juice will safely remove the hard water marks. Be sure to rinse and dry the area afterwards.

Garbage Disposal Odor

Ah, the Garbage Disposal – incredibly useful and, if not properly cared for, smelly. Here’s a neat way to make deodorizing “tabs” with vinegar and lemons. Get some ice trays and put a small slice of lemon in each one. Next, Fill the ice trays up with white vinegar and freeze them. Once they’re frozen, bag them up to reduce any vinegar smell in your freezer. Now, whenever the garbage disposal smells a little off, throw a cube or two in and let it run. Alternatively, you could use a cube every day or so to prevent smells from forming in the first place.

Well, I hope this week’s Fixing Frustration series has helped you out. Like us on Facebook if you want to see more of this series!

I decided to try Oxi Fresh carpet cleaning due to the reviews but, and I had a horrible experience from the time Jessie (technician) was scheduled to arrive at the home up until the completion of the cleaning. He called me at 2:28 pm for a 3:15 pm scheduled appointment and asked me if he could come early I said, “ no one is at the home right now”. He said “but, I will be there shortly can someone let me in”. So, I made arrangements for someone to be at the home at 3 :00. Well at 3:20 pm Jessis still had not arrived to the home so I called him, and he said, “ your appointment is at 3:15 pm”. I said, “you called me and asked me to have someone at the home because you was arriving early and now you are late.” He said, “ Well I'm 20 mins away”. He did not arrive until 3:35pm.He completed a walk through, and I ordered the 5-room special which was 138.00 to include the hall, stairs and 3 bedrooms. When he arrived, he said the open area space attached to the hallway was an additional room. He wanted to charge me an additional 37 dollars but decided to give me a "discount". What was originally $ 138.00 special ended up being $ 170.00.My concern wasn’t so much the the additional “ room “ but the level of customer service.Jessie inconvenienced me by asking me to change my scheduled to accommodate his early arrival and then he arrived later than the scheduled appointment. Then the owner Chris Supe stated “ they don’t work for free” as if I wanted them to work for free.I think Oxi clean needs to clearly define what a room is, and the definitions need to be the same across owners. It is unfortunate that during the scheduling Christina was phenomenal, but the level of services quickly depreciated after scheduling the appointment. Also, I explained what I needed cleaned when scheduling the appointment and offered to send picture. They offered me the 5-room special, but the owner didn’t feel like the home met the requirements for the special.Lastly. The outcome of the carpet did not meet my expectations. It did not look any better than when I use my personal carpet shampooer. Purchase a Bissell and do it yourself or shop around. Oxi Clean has lost my business!!****I tried to give the rating a 1 but it looks like the rating is preset to a "5" and the system wouldn't allow me to change it. *** JH. - 05/04/2020
