Keep it Green while you Spring Clean
Keep it Green while you Spring Clean
It’s that time when many of us do a thorough clean of our home after a long winter. A few of our basic pantry items can do the job just as well or better than the heavy duty supermarket cleaners. Here’s five great tips that don’t need more than four ingredients: Vinegar, baking soda, rubbing alcohol and lemon.
Mattress: Sprinkle baking soda on mattress. Leave for 1 hour and then use upholstery attachment and vacuum. Spray mattress with rubbing alcohol. Let it dry. Remake bed with fresh sheets (see tip below).
Mildew towels or clothes: Wash your load of towels on the hot cycle and add 1 cup of vinegar to the load. Let the washer do its job.
Dishwasher: Place two cups of vinegar in a container in the top rack. Sprinkle baking soda on the bottom and sides. Run on the hottest cycle.
Microwave: Place one cup of vinegar with one cup of water in an uncovered container and microwave to a boil to let it steam and clean. Use microfiber cloth to wipe clean.
Homemade all purpose cleaner: ¼ cup of vinegar, 4 cups of HOT water, 2 tbsp of baking soda, juice of 1 lemon. Combine all ingredients in a spray or squeeze bottle. Use liberally throughout the house.

Are you Sure you Can do That??
Are you Sure you Can do That??
Before you begin on any major projects in your yard this year, make sure you have an up to date Real Property Report (RPR) and that you obtain the proper development permit. If your improvements do not comply with the City rules or real property lines, it could be quite costly in fees, fines or even lawsuits down the road.
A general rule, all of the following must be met in order to meet the City bylaw requirements (m = meters):
1. A shed that is not attached to the house and is less than 10 sq.m. does not require a building permit if it meets all zoning requirements. Be careful not to build too close to your neighbors. It needs to be located at least 0.9 m (3 ft) from a side lot line, 0.6 m (2 ft) from a rear lot line and 0.9 m (3 ft) from the house.
2. A Deck - You will need a development and building permit if the deck floor is over 0.6 meters (m) or 2 feet (ft) above grade. If the deck will be built on a corner lot or in the front yard, you will need to talk to a Development Officer about the regulations, by either calling 311 or visiting the City with a site plan.
3. A detached rear garage - must be set back at least 2.75 metres from the rear property line. If the height of the garage exceeds 1.85 metres, it must be set back at least 0.6 metres from the side property line. Otherwise, it must be at least 0.9 metres from the side property.
These are general by bylaw rules for City of Edmonton. These rules may vary for different land zoning. Always make sure you consult the city before starting your project. Click here for more details.
