Do I Need A Rug Pad?

Choosing the right area rug can be tricky, even when you have a keen eye for design. The right one can complete the look of your space, while the wrong one can make a room feel awkward or unfinished. Style, shape, size and color — there are so many elements to consider.

So when you’ve finally found that perfect, room-completing area rug — it’s absolutely essential that you pair a rug pad with it. Why? We’ll tell you…

Safety First

A quality rug pad will keep your area rug from sliding around, bucking, and creating a trip hazard. Regardless if you have hardwoods, tile, or even wall-to-wall carpet — there is a particular rug pad designed specifically for your needs.

Long Live Your Rug

A rug pad will protect your rug from wear and tear by absorbing the majority of impact from your feet. This takes the strain off the rug fibers, and over time extends the life of the rug.

Household Remedies For Cleaning Tile Grout

Most of us have heard the saying, “a clean home is a happy home.” And for most of us, it’s true.  A clean home can help us to feel relaxed and calm. There’s something undeniably therapeutic about the lemony smell of clean countertops, or a freshly mopped floor. So when stubborn grime in your grout lines prevent you from having sparkling surfaces — it’s time to break out your toughest rubber gloves!

Good News You don’t have to make a special trip to the store for grout-specific cleaning products. You probably already have a bunch of good options at home.

Bad NewsThis endeavor will require some serious elbow grease. So grab a rag, toothbrush, and some vinegar, and get ready to fight grime!


A simple bottle of vinegar can work wonders on grout lines. Apply it directly to the grout by itself or dilute it with water. Simply pour the vinegar along the edges of the tile and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then scrub the grout in circular motions with a toothbrush. Not doing the trick? Add baking soda to create a supercharged grime-fighting paste.

More than just a deliciously fresh scent — the high acidity in lemon juice actually eats away at stubborn stains and discoloration in grout. Leave it on for ten minutes before wiping clean. You can even do a combination, vinegar + baking soda + lemons.

Hydrogen Peroxide

If your grout grime still isn’t budging, it’s time to break out the hydrogen peroxide. Thanks to its oxidizing properties, this liquid makes a fantastic household cleaner, especially for grout cleaning. Create a solution of half hydrogen peroxide and half water, spray, and let sit for 10 minutes before scrubbing with your toothbrush. For even more cleaning power, use an electric toothbrush!
