Experts in Your Home has spent enough time around homeowners, weekend warriors and do-it-yourselfers to know: it's often not a home cleaning task, per se, that they wish to avoid.

They may not exactly relish the thought of getting down and dirty; this is true. But it is the perceived outcome that they dread even more. And because they perceive failure, they avoid the task. They procrastinate and find every reason and excuse to avoid it.

We're all human, so if the Experts have tapped into your own human psychology with regard to concrete stains, you can now rest assured: Most stains can be removed – or at least mostly removed. As with many other home cleaning tasks, Experts in Your Home recommends starting with a simple method before gradually moving to more aggressive methods to clean and remove stains from concrete sidewalks, patios and driveways.

Like many pet owners, you probably take enormous pride in your four-legged companion. But still: You probably won't swell with pride if a neighbor knocks on your door and says that he or she “can't wait” to meet your dog when you haven't even introduced the two yet.

Your neighbor is no mind reader; he or she just has a reliable “sniffer” – a nose for the pet odors that are streaming from your otherwise home, sweet-smelling home.

Every once in a while, the Experts in Your Home team visit a home where you'd never know a dog or puppy is part of the family – unless the little guy (or gal) comes barreling into the room. These homeowners have developed some housekeeping habits to keep their homes looking, and smelling, sparkling clean. These eight habits are worth sharing because some homeowners are the masters – in more ways than one.

You can stay up late and watch infomercials that tout the latest “wonder” cleaner – and then “hurry” before the end of the segment to “call right away” and scoop up two products – not one, but two! -- for the “unbelievable” price of one.

Yes, you can do all this and take your chances on the outcome. Or you can take a page from the home cleaning book of Experts in Your Home and rely on three products you probably have in your home already: vinegar, baking soda and lemon. They’re natural, they’re inexpensive and they can eliminate any stain or odor in your home. Used alone or together, they work.

They don't call it one of life's biggest stressors for nothing.

Moving to a new house is an all-consuming process (some would call it an ordeal) for months beforehand and weeks afterward. A thorough home inspection and a walk-through right before your closing should have set your expectations accordingly. But since it's rare for anybody to move out of one home and directly (and completely) into another home on the same day, carve out a window of time to tend to these five issues either right before you move into your new home or just as soon as you do.

These five home tips won't eliminate the stress of your move. But based on the experience of Experts In Your Home, they will instill you with some peace of mind when you need it most:

We all have a “clutter quotient,” or the degree to which we tolerate or even feel comforted by stacks of papers, bills and advertisements on the kitchen counter, assorted personal belongings tossed over a chair and the DVDs strewn on the floor that never seem to find their way back to the shelf.

But there's a difference between clutter and dirt, and it's safe to assume that most of us enjoy living in – or at least aspire to live in – a clean home.

carpet_cleaningBy now, you've either a member of the Remove Your Shoes at the Door Club or you're not. But it's never too late to join.

Membership requires that you kindly ask visitors to your home to place their dirty shoes at the door. As a good host, you provide a small area rug for guest to line up their shoes and slide them back on as they leave your home.

Parents of infants and toddlers – who crawl around on the floor and regularly put their fingers into their mouths – tend to make few if any apologies for being a member of the club. It's the rest of us who might feel a little reticent about asking grownups to remove their shoes before entering our home. After all, what if they resist? What if you unwittingly embarrass them because they have holes in their socks?

It's that frantic time of year again when you have to get "back to"” everything. Back to school, back to work, back to routine, back to life really after what was hopefully a fun, relaxing summer. So fun in fact, that you didn't really spend much time focusing on home maintenance, especially cleaning. Of course now life is busy with morning office meetings, afternoon errands, evening sport practices, and homework. Sure, you're able to keep up on the day-to-day cleaning like dusting and vacuuming, but what about the extra stuff, like the cobwebs in the corner of your vaulted ceiling or those blinds you keep meaning to dust?
