So you are spring cleaning soon. The grime and dirt, stains, mold, bacteria and even fleas eggs, vapor steam cleaners would be your ultimate choice for quick and easy cleaning. They are more effective than simply using plain water and safer than harsh chemical cleansing agents.

 

There are many types of vapor steam cleaners, from the jug sized to canister form used by industrial cleaners. The former lack power, cleaning time is limited to about 10 minutes and waiting for the water to re boil takes half an hour. Not to mention, the surface covered is small. Unless you are cleaning a small space and have a lot of time to spend constantly waiting for the water to boil, the jug sized cleaner is surely not your cup of tea as it just does not measure up to its larger and more efficient counterparts.

 

The better ones tend to be more portable and some include wheels for greater mobility and portability. This feature, often taken for granted, enables the machine to move about without scratching the flooring. These machines are capable of cleaning larger areas, removing more dirt and grime, with a wider variety of accessories to further enhance the results.

 

The average effective vapor steam cleaners are capable of reaching up to 300 degree Fahrenheit and have PSI or pounds per square inch of at least 70. When choosing the right one for your cleaning needs, you should get as much pressure and temperature as you can for the price you pay. As vapor is dry, the damage caused to your surfaces is limited and you should opt for high PSI even to the extent of 150. In addition, choose one with lifetime guarantee on your key components like boiler, heating coils or specific proprietary features.

 

These steam cleaning machines with the incorporation of vacuuming functions enhance productivity and cut cleaning time by two fold. The dual function of lifting grime and dirt with vapor and removing them by vacuuming is indeed a very handy process which eliminates the tiring manual cleaning with a loose towel after steaming.

 

Unlike the conventional steam cleaning machines, vapor steam cleaners are a breed of its own, cleaning surfaces with its very unique process yet achieving desired result at the end of the day.

There are tremendous benefits to owning a steam cleaning machine for your home or business. A steam vapor cleaner can be used to clean any surface in your home. Flooring, bedding, furniture, kitchens and bathrooms will never be any cleaner than with using a professional steam cleaner. Hardwood, laminate and ceramic tile to name a few floor types are cleaned much deeper using a steam cleaner versus the traditional mop or hands & knees technique. It cleans, disinfects and dry's the floor all at the same time, making it much easier on you. The high temperature of dry steam will kill all bacteria and the best benefit of using a steam cleaner is it's all natural.

How to Steam Clean Hardwood Floors?

 

Hardwood floor cleaning has never been so easy, it's a simple 2 step process. A steam cleaner on a hardwood floor is completely safe and 100% more effective than a traditional mop.

Fill your steamer with water. We always recommend distilled water to prolong the life of your steamer, though clean tap water is fine.

Plug your steamer in and turn it on. After a few moments it should heat up and when the steamer is ready a light should go on to tell you your machine is ready. Attach the correct floor tool with a clean cloth over the floor attachment. Simply pull your trigger and start mopping the floor and it will be cleaner than ever. Please note that no specific cloth is really needed for the attachment. A simple clean household towel will do the job fine.

 

Remember not to focus the steam on one spot to long as it may cause damage to the finish of the floor. Normal use in a back and forth motion will prevent any damage from happening. Your floor will dry extremely fast as little water is left behind compared to standard mops. You're ready to go!

 

How to Clean A Mattress & Kill Dust Mites?

 

Sleeping on a clean mattress will help you breathe easier and allow you to experience a better night's sleep. Using a steam cleaner is one way of ridding your mattress of dust mites and keeping it clean. A vapor cleaner is recommended as it uses less water and will allow the mattress to dry faster. Simply follow the following steps:

 

Fill your steamer with water. We always recommend distilled water to prolong the life of your steamer, though tap water is fine. Plug your steamer in and turn it on. After a few moments it should heat up and when the steamer is ready a light should go on to tell you your machine is ready. While the machine is warming up you can strip the mattress of all bedding sheets and make sure that they are washed in hot water before being put back on. Attach an attachment to the end of the wand (a floor tool is fine with a new cloth over the top). Simply pull the trigger and start moving in a back and forth motion making sure not to stop in one area to long as you don't want to damage the mattress. Start from the top and move back and forth till you reach the bottom. Before flipping the mattress make sure to do the four sides of the mattress. When complete perform the same task on the opposite side of the mattress. Allow the mattress to dry for a bit before putting back in place and remaking the bed with the newly washed sheets. You're ready to go!

 

How to Steam Clean Grout?

 

Steam cleaning the grout of a tiled floor will leave it looking brand new. A professional steamer will clean the grout 10 times better than an individual could scrubbing and it can all be done with no chemicals, just water in a matter of moments. Follow these simple steps:

 

Fill your steamer with water. We always recommend distilled water to prolong the life of your steamer, though tap water is fine. Plug your steamer in and turn it on. After a few moments it should heat up and when the steamer is ready a light should go on to tell you your machine is ready. While your machine is heating up you can clear the floor of all furniture and prep it. Add the detail brush to the end of your wand as this will allow you to clean the grout the best. Detail brushes come in different formats and you'll want to make sure to start by using the least abrasive brush first. The Nylon brush tends to be the softest and the steel tends to be the roughest. Start in a private area first to assure proper use and the correct brush. Place the tip of the wand over the grout and begin moving back and forth watching the dirt disappear. Once complete you'll want to take a dry cloth or mop over the tile to remove any excess water. A standard kitchen can be complete in less than 30 minutes leaving the grout looking brand new. As an added touch you can add the floor attachment and steam the tile to complete the overall appearance of the job. You're ready to go!

The term 'sod' refers to grass which has been planted and nurtured systematically. Large old mansions, golf courses and tennis lawns are some of the common places where this grass is usually planted.

Sod grass is usually planted in a much disciplined manner. It is then trimmed and nurtured so as to maintain high standards. However, for you to plant it in your garden or if you want to undertake a project that involves lawn making, there are several costs that you will be required to put into consideration.

First you need to bear in mind that though grass or sod prices are not high, the initial process involved in nurturing the growth of the lawn is not only time consuming, but also full of many overheads. You will need to put this into consideration or else your lawn may run wild. In this article we are going to specifically look at some of the costs involved in the process of laying sod.

Cost of Laying Sod

The first thing that you are required to do is ascertaining the total surface area of the place where you want to place the sod lawn. This is very essential as the prices of the sods are usually expressed on the basis of weight.

The second consideration involves finalizing the sod type that you want to plant. Usually, there are two types of sod namely, warm season sods and cool season sods. Just as the names suggests, the warm ones usually thrive well under the warm climates while the cool ones under cold climates.

When rearing this grass for the first time, you should note that the cool season grass will usually require more water to thrive, if it happens to be planted during the warm season. It is thus advisable that you plant the sods as per their seasons so as to cut down costs of maintenance.

You should also note that sods are usually sold either as seeds or inform of integrated carpet grass. The carpet sod's upfront cost is usually higher, but if you happen to consider the seed, you will be required to nurture the grass to full growth, and also at the same time you will be required to maintain it throughout all the seasons. Let us now have a look at the various cool and warm climate sod varieties.

COOL CLIMATE SOD VARIETIES

*Kentucky Bluegrass

The deep green feel usually present in the grass makes it to be a very popular variety. A 3 pound bag is needed for some 1000 square feet. This will approximately cost 10-30 dollars.

*Ryegrass

This one is slightly less expensive than the Kentucky bluegrass and its seeds are usually used in proportion of approximately 25 ibs per 1000 square feet. The 25 ibs bag approximately costs 70-80 dollars.

WARM CLIMATE VARIETIES

*The Bermuda grass

This grass type usually costs approximately 30 dollars per one ibs. You may get a five ibs bag for approximately 25-30 dollars.

*Zoysia

This type of grass is usually used in proportion of approximately 2.5-3 ibs as per 1000 sq feet. This will cost you approximately 30-40 dollars.

If you want to learn how to lay sod quickly, then this article is for you. Even though there are about 15 different variations or different ways that you could go about laying sod, this way is the easiest. For some lawns, it will give great results, for others, the results could be pretty poor. Please use this method at your own risk. It is specifically for people who do not like to spend a lot of money or time installing a new one.

The first step is to make sure that you kill all the grass and weeds that are existing in your lawn. The best way to do this is to spray a strong solution of Roundup on your lawn. Allow it 7 to 10 days to work. Your grass should be brown and dead by the end of the 10 days.

The next two steps are optional, although recommended. You want to rent a power rake and power rake your dead grass on the right setting to get rid of all of the lawn. Then, make sure to rake up all of the dead grass and level out your soil with a garden rake ( or soil rake). Then, rent a lawn aerator and go over your lawn three or four times. This will help soften the ground underneath and allow the new sod to establish itself once you lay it down. Break up the plugs so that the ground will be even for you to lay the sod on.

The next step on learning how to lay sod is that, after your grass is completely dead, roll your new sod right on top of where the old grass was. Try and keep your sod pieces as close as you can to each other so that you will not have any gaps on your installation. Make sure to water the ground thoroughly after you have finished your installation. After that, you'll want to continue to water the lawn regularly.

The reason why watering your lawn is so important is because when sod is cut, about two thirds of the roots are cut off of it. Watering is what keeps the grass alive until the roots can grow down to their normal level. Make sure that you do not miss a day of watering, especially for the first two weeks. After about three weeks, you can probably get away with watering just once a day or once every other day. Wait until your grass is at least 4 inches long before you mow it. The first time that you mow it, don't mow it very short, because you want the roots to come in nice and thick.

The screenplay you've pounded out on your trusty word processor is finished at last! Before the reader even looks at the title of your script, it must pass the "rifle test." The rifle test tells a professional in seconds whether the script is professionally written or not. Is the screenplay in the right format? Does it look like it was written by a professional screenwriter? Is the script vertical?

The Rifle Test

Hollywood screenwriters know that a reader, agent or producer can tell instantly by fanning the pages back to front if your script is professionally written and in the proper format. Your script will not even get a read at an agency or get studio coverage if it doesn't look right. The typical development executive reads 35-50 scripts a week on their own time, away from the office. After reading hundreds and hundreds of scripts, they can see at a glance if it looks right. If it's not right, it's dumped. It's that simple. If you use a good screenwriting program, then this is an area you won't have to worry about. If you don't have one, at least follow the rules. They're relatively simple. They're also hard and fast and not meant to be deviated from, so don't "improve" upon the formula, just use it. You can get the layout details at ScriptNurse.com for free.

Before you get the screenplay down on paper, watch out for "speed bumps" that are practically guaranteed to stop the reader in his tracks. Remember, there are only TWO TOOLS to work with in writing a screenplay:

* ACTION: a description of what is seen on the screen visually

* DIALOGUE: what the characters say

Here are some rules and do's and don'ts for writing your screenplay with impact:

Action Description Tips

Don't direct or act: Directors don't like to be told how to shoot a scene. Besides, a good director might do it better than you suggest in the script. Actors don't like to be told how to act, so don't tell them how to play the scene in your script. By using techniques to make your script more "vertical" you can lead the director and the reader where you want them to go. Break up paragraphs into smaller ones so that each paragraph implies a shot. "we see" or "we hear" sounds like you're directing, so don't use them. Instead, the the technique of making your script "vertical" to accomplish the same thing.

Kill the camera: Remove all references to camera movement and angles. If you have to do it more than once or twice in an entire script, there's something wrong with the way you're writing it. Eliminate any "we see" or "we hear" references because "we" don't see or hear. Write the visual action the audience will see on the screen or the words the actors say. The simplicity of screenwriting is what makes it so hard to do. Use the "vertical" technique to lead the reader through the shots.

The verb "is" implies a state of being that cannot be photographed. Only visual action can be put on the screen. Any reference to whom "is thinking," "knows about," "wants to be," or "looks like" needs to be rewritten. Action description doesn't have to be perfect English. This isn't a novel. It DOES have to be colorful, descriptive and visual so the reader can "see" in their heads what you want seen on-screen.

Use strong language and avoid passive voice writing: "Fred is running around crazily" is weak compared to "Fred runs, flailing his arms frantically." Look for any descriptions that talk about "is" or "being." That's weak writing. Make it colorful! Use simple, colorful, visual words. Don't convert verbs into nouns as in the example above. The verb is "runs" -- keep it a verb and you'll have stronger, present tense writing.

Eliminate CUT TO: in your script. It's already implied when you show a new scene heading anyway.

Character Development

If they're good, make them very good. If they're bad, make them really bad. This makes your characters easier to identify with and clearer in the mind of the script reader. We all want to know who to root for and who to despise. Don't make it hard to figure out. It can always be "dumbed down" later.

Write backstories for your characters. Create their past lives and family history. Note their quirks, habits (good and bad), flaws, compulsions, fears, phobias and dark secrets. List things that scare them in the night. Write down every skeleton in their closet. Include parents and siblings, if appropriate. Write down traits others might see as good, redeeming and to be admired. What makes them likeable? What makes others immediately not like them? These all work together to help you understand your characters. It makes them come alive. Creating a past lets you create a future in your screenplay that's real and plausible. Having this understanding leads to you knowing that a character would or wouldn't "do that" or "say that." For example, everyone knows that Indiana Jones has a phobia about snakes that gives him pause. Since he's bigger than life, he faces his fear, but because he has a common phobia, we can all identify with him easily.

Try "casting" your script with a dream cast. Cast each principal role with the biggest name you can think of who is perfect for the part. See that $20 Million Star as the character you're writing. Get their photos and stick them up on a wall with their character name above the photo. When you've got Jack Nicholson speaking your lines, you find out very quickly the kinds of things he simply could not do or would not say.

Real vs. Reel Dialogue

There's real dialogue and "reel" dialogue. If you want real dialogue, just go outside, where there's plenty of it. Reel dialogue in film is different. It's terse and more direct without being "in your face" or "on the nose." Here's where reading good, quality scripts can really help you. If you need help with dialogue, I recommend getting a great dialogue tool called Great Dialogue (www.greatdialogue.com).

Rule of Thumb: In a properly formatted script, if there are more than five lines of dialogue under a character name, it's starting to become a speech. Too many speeches and your script becomes too "talky."

Strike every "well," "now," "listen," "oh," etc. that you find in your dialogue. Actors put those in where it's natural to do so and they only make a script harder to read.

Delete the "pleasantries" and "chit-chat" from scenes. You're just wasting time, boring the reader and keeping them from your story.

Act it out: say the lines out loud as you write them. It's amazing how much this helps.

Let's Start Hacking

It's time to get rid of the weak, passive and pointless from your script. Start by making a backup copy of the script before you get out the hacksaw and start chopping everything to pieces.

Your story might be too long, wanders aimlessly, or lacks impact. Let's thin it out without gutting it. Do this:

1. Strike every "well," "now," "listen," "oh," etc. that you find in your dialogue. Get to the subject at hand and cut to the chase. Cut out the unnecessary clutter in what your characters say. You can always put it back in if the producer wants it. Actors hate to be told how to act and producers hate reading about that, too.

2. Look for parentheticals (instructions to the actor in parentheses in the dialogue). Hack them out. Use them ONLY when there's no other way to indicate that a particular line is directed to a specific character out of several in the same scene or if it cannot be done by carefully selecting the words for a character. Parentheticals are speed bumps in a script. Avoid them entirely if possible.

3. See just how terse you can make the dialogue. Terseness helps to create impact and makes characters seem more forceful and decisive in a drama and funnier in a comedy. When it gets to the point where you're feeling a little uncomfortable with the directness, it's probably about right.

4. Review the action descriptions. Any "is" or "being" description needs to be re-written to give it impact. Strike references to ANYTHING not seen on the screen, like reminding the reader that "so-and-so was the same guy who..." -- you get the idea. If it can't be seen: HACK IT OUT! Think in master scenes. It's okay to write the interior and exterior scenes at one location as one scene. Use a separate action description paragraph to signal a separate shot without explicitly saying so, to let the reader know we went outside, if you started with INT. BAR - NIGHT. It's a LOT easier to read that way.

5. Find every instance of a simple word and give it more impact. Get simple, colorful language in your descriptions. Cars don't just "pull up at the curb." They also gasp, lurch, grind, shudder, gurgle, clatter and expire at the curb. Get a good thesaurus or use the one built into your screenwriting or word processing program. The point is -- use it! Also, eliminate big words not commonly used in everyday speech unless it's part of a character's persona.

By now, you should have thinned things out a LOT. Good. You're down to meat and potatoes, if you're lucky. Your script should be more visual, carry more impact and possess tight, crisp dialogue. Now set it aside for at least a week, preferably two. When you come back in one or two weeks, start again and repeat the process. You're done when you run out of things to hack out.

Making Your Script Vertical

A reader is looking for any excuse to dump your screenplay on the ever-growing reject pile. One way to do this is to look for the amount of white space that is seen when doing the "rifle test." Vertical scripts have more white space. How do you make a script vertical? Just break up the densely packed paragraphs into two or three sentence paragraphs. There's a side benefit to this approach, too. All of these smaller paragraphs serve to imply the shots that are needed. It's not good to tell a director how to direct, but it's not bad to lead him down the path. You can do this by the way you write the script and by making it vertical.

Conclusion

There you have it: a few approaches, do's and don'ts, exercises and suggestions. I hope you will put the exercises to a test. You might be very surprised at the results. Perhaps there's a better script inside the one you're working on just waiting to get out.

Every wedding has three constants. The bride should be more beautiful than anyone else in the room. The bridesmaids will be uncomfortable and tacky and, of course, a beautiful wedding cake is the centerpiece of the reception. As long as these priorities go well, the wedding will be perfect. Well, it is also important for the groom to show up. It is a marriage after all.

Every bride worth her designer dress knows that her wedding cake must be spectacular and fit her theme and color scheme. No matter how great the food is at the wedding if the cake is a flop, everyone leaves talking about how bad the cake is. Sometimes the bride chooses a cake that is so intricate that it might take a week to complete. Can you say stale cake? Making sure that you have a beautiful wedding cake that also tastes great takes planning and a great bakery.

First as soon as the date is set, the bride should start planning her theme and color scheme. After these decisions, she needs to find a baker and confirm the date. Most good wedding cake bakers only schedule a few wedding cakes at a time because they are so time intensive. The first step is to visit the bakeries in town and perhaps sample some of their pastries. You can learn a lot about a baker from simply eating a few cookies or a cupcake. Most of the time the bakeries will have sample cakes decorating the store. If you have a particular point of view, you can tell whether or not the bakery fits your sense of style. If you visit a traditional bakery and want a very modern cake, you probably want to keep looking.

Once you find a few bakeries to choose from ask for an appointment for tasting. Most bakeries offer several cake flavors and fillings. There are several frosting selections also. At a tasting, you can expect to eat lots of cake. Yummy! If you choose a large cake, you might even want to choose a different cake flavor and filling for each layer. The frosting must stay the same. Frankly, this is one of the few parts of the wedding planning process that the groom will want to help you with if he likes cake. What's not to like? Don't make the mistake of taking too many people with you. You should take your parents, if they are paying, the fiance, and a wedding planner if you have one.

During the tasting, the baker will have a book of cakes that she has baked in the past. If you don't come with pictures or ideas about the cake you want, the book is a great way to get ideas. If you don't see anything you love, tell the baker about your wedding theme and your colors. You can also relate the overall picture you want your cake to portray.

The cake decorations are as varied as there are brides planning weddings. A bride may choose real flowers which add vibrancy and a natural beauty to the cake. The flowers should match the flowers used to decorate the reception room. Another idea is to decorate the cake with delicate lace work and flowers actually made by the baker. This type of work takes time and pushes up the price of the cake.

A beautiful wedding cake is every bride's dream. She wants everyone to walk into her reception hall and gasp at the sight of her cake. The picture of the bride and groom enjoying the cake is always one of the best pictures of the night. With a little work and planning every bride can have a beautiful wedding cake.

Everyone - man and woman - can find a use for a handbag; a good handbag is even better. The three most important steps in any handbags life is the designer (the idea person: the parent), the manufacturer (the creator), and the retailer (the seller). Each step of the way is arguably as important as the other steps. All handbags will have reached this step sometime in its fabrication process. When a designer seems to have been touched by a higher being to create a design that is a little slice of heaven, the designer gains a better reputation as a handbag designer and brings you more and more of the designs you like. Often, the popularity of a designer will increase the price of the handbags that designer design. Then along comes those designer inspired handbags.

I have heard it said that imitation is the ultimate form of a compliment. Perhaps there is truth in this saying. When a designer's handbags are so popular that they require a replica, imitation, inspired, or fake designers to create something similar, that is the biggest achievement. These designers change the handbag in a slight way sometimes as easy as changing the initials used on the handbag. For example, Louis Vuitton always has a signature LV on his handbags, some designer inspired handbags may have LW. Coach is another good example. All Coach handbags have a double C design on the fabric, designer inspired handbags may have a CG instead of the double C.

These handbags never claim to be authentic. To do so is illegal and a travesty to you and the original designer. However, replicas and inspired handbags meet all requirements for staying legal. They offer you design, fashion, and style at an affordable rate. Most people can not easily afford $10000 USD for that exquisite handbag. A designer inspired handbag may be able to get you the same look and feel of that handbag for around $100 USD.

Maybe you are wondering why anyone would want a designer handbag if they can get a lookalike for so cheap. Well, the keyword is "cheap". The designer handbags offer a higher quality in material and fabrication. A designer inspired handbag may look beautiful and sexy, but usually the quality is significantly lower than the original. The inspired handbag may have a weaker thread or weaker hems, or a replica handbag could have a low quality of closures and clasps that will rust with time; you should always check those straps or handle for loose strings. Fraying thread is definitely the enemy of those designer inspired handbags.

Shopping for inspired handbags can be a lot of fun if you know where to shop. One of the most popular places to shop these days is the Internet. Surprisingly, the Internet has caused a boom in the handbag industry. Of course, replica and inspired handbags fall into that same class. When you shop online for your designer or replica handbag needs, you should always check for the reputation of the company or person you are purchasing from before you buy. There are a lot of horror stories on the Internet. Of course, you can choose to find your designer replica handbags a little closer to home with any number of those specialty stores that are ready to meet your every need.
