How to clean blades on a fan (not ceiling fan), I call them stand fans, window fans, without taking the fan itself apart.Jessica: With most fans, you can easily take them apart and wipe down the blades, but with box fans, cleaning can be tricky. You can try a dusting wand that will fit through the slats, but that may be a tight fit. Another thing you can try is a hairdryer set on the coolest temperature or a leaf blower. I would definitely try these outside though!

Any suggestions how to keep raccoons away from the backyard?
Thank youJessica: Raccoons don't like the smell of pepper, so anything that smells like pepper or hot sauce will usually deter them. If you have other animals, you have to be really careful using pepper though, because you really don't want them to get into it. Also, be sure to dispose of any food/trash that could lure them in. Hope this helps!
Cleaning solution for non wood floors.Jessica: I use a solution of equal parts distilled white vinegar and warm water for all of the non-wood/laminate floors in our home.

How can i keep cat & dog hair under control?Jessica: The only real way to keep pet hair under control is to brush them often, then keep a hand vac or lint brush handy. We used to have a dog that shed like crazy and the only way to keep the fur from overtaking our home was to brush him all of the time to keep it from shedding everywhere. We vacuumed our furniture daily with a hand vac to keep what was left somewhat clean. I wish I had an easier answer for you!
How do I remove rust or hard water stains on shower doors?Jessica: I would first try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to see if it will lift the stains...those things are amazing! If that doesn't work, try scrubbing it lightly with a little bit of baking soda mixed with dish liquid. Just make a toothpaste consistency paste and rub it in, then use a cloth to work it into the stain and hopefully lift it! Hope this helps!
