Cajun Pepper For Organic Pest Control

I hate any kind of bugs or spiders, even ants. The solution I found was so easy, cheap and works. Cajun pepper sprinkled around doors and next to the wall gets rid of any problem without poison or finding a dead mouse in those traps.

Use Scrubby Bath Gloves for Cleaning Bathroom

Every time I cleaned my tub, I was using a scrub brush but it was slipping out of my hand. Gripping it was a pain and getting into crevices wasn't that easy. I started to notice I had quite a few of those scrubby/loofah bath gloves.
