Cleaning, Sifting & Fixing

Major washing today. The washing machine was practically on the whole 5 hours Phoebie and I were home.

I’m washing up all the clothes and bags that we will be donating to the thrift shop that my previous company runs. Donating the pre-loved clothes and bags will clear up space for us in our wardrobe, help my previous company raise funds and people get to buy good pre-loved apparels at an affordable price. So it’s a win-win-win situation. πŸ™‚

While the washing machine was washing non-stop, I tore off the cardboard that was wrapping the king-sized bed and finally cleaned the mattress up.

20130917-202616.jpg I spent a good 30 minutes vacuuming the mattress using my Dyson DC26.

Just as I turned the vacuum cleaner off, I heard Phoebie crying. She was supposed to be napping while I vacuumed with the door closed. And so,

20130917-202836.jpg I was requested to lie down with her while she tried to go back to sleep.

20130917-202947.jpg So with her hand on my arm, I was “forced” take a break while she slowly fell back asleep.

Once she was asleep, I went back to work, packing more things to be donated.

Not only was I going to donate clothes and bags, I was also going to donate my pots, some plates and some utensils. My previous company is also starting a new youth centre, so donating these things will give me more space in the kitchen, and equip the kitchen of the new youth centre.

The ex-colleague I’m liasing with about the things we are going to donate asked me why I was donating all those kitchen stuff and I showed her these pictures:


20130917-203929.jpg I told her about the kitchen ware I had bought in the US. And I really need space because my kitchen is not big. Haha…

Another thing I found time to do today was to “fix” and touch up on some little scratches on the dining chairs.

20130917-204508.jpg This is a product my friends and I had spotted while we were in the US, and for those of us who own wooden furniture, this could be a quick fix if we had little scratches on the furniture.

20130917-204736.jpg I spotted this scratch on the side of one of the dining chairs and decided to test the marker here.

This is the result after starting with the lightest shade:

20130917-204951.jpg I thought the chair looked much better after the light touch up.

20130917-205031.jpg This is after the medium shade was applied. Certainly looks better than before.

Not sure if this product is available in Singapore, but if any one needs a quick touch up on your wooden furniture, let me know. I’ll be happy to lend you the markers. πŸ™‚
