Improve Your Kitchen to Help Sell Your Home

My husband and I recently put our home onto the market, because we were expecting a baby and need to upgrade to something larger. When offers rolled in that were really low, we decided to ask our realtor why people thought the house was worth so much less than it was. He was honest and told us that he had heard our kitchen was a bit of an eyesore. He was right, but I had actually put off renovations because I knew we were looking to sell the home soon. We took the gamble and renovated our kitchen. It paid off! We received an offer that was near our asking price, and it made the kitchen renovations well worth it! I created this blog to help others struggling to sell their homes realize that a few small improvements can help you finally sell your home!

3 Tips To Keep The Exterior Glass Railing On Your Balcony Clean

Offering a crystal clear view and a modern touch, glass railing is an excellent choice for an upper-floor balcony, on the outside of your home. Glass railing is a popular choice among homeowners, but it does have one tricky, little problem that you can run into, if you have this railing—keeping it clean. With exposure to the outdoor elements, and glass's natural tendency to pick up fingerprints and grime, you may find keeping that crystal clear balcony view to be a challenge. Here are a few tips to help keep your exterior glass railing on your balcony clean and pristine. 

Use a mild vinegar wash to clean your glass railing. 

Distilled white vinegar has been used for a long time as a cleaning agent, and it actually works pretty well on glass railings. Simply dilute white vinegar in warm water; put it in a spray bottle; spray down the glass railing; and wipe the surfaces down with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel. Vinegar works out well because the acidic nature of it bites away at grime and smudges. Plus, it is a safe cleaning compound to use outdoors around plants and animals. 

Keep a squeegee near your balcony for whisking away water drops after the rain. 

One of the pesky problems about glass is when it has been splattered with moisture, those spots of water tend to evaporate and leave highly noticeable spots on the glass itself. To ward off this problem when it rains, keep a small squeegee near your balcony, so you can step out and squeegee away the moisture, when the rain is over. Likewise, you can use a clean cotton towel to quickly dry away the excess water on the glass. 

Invest in a fingerprint repelling glass cleaner. 

If you have problems with handprints and fingerprints clouding the view on your glass railing, you will have to invest in something a little more capable of dealing with the problem than a vinegar wash alone. Glass cleaners made for outdoor use sometimes have an active ingredient that repels fingerprints and other grime. These glass cleaners work just like the others, but when you apply the solution to the glass, and then wipe it away, you actually leave behind a thin invisible coating that repels oils and grime that come from the skin. These glass cleaners also work well for areas that are prone to a lot of dust.
