And Now, Vince's Uncle Roberto On How To Remove Mildew In Your Bathroom

Bathroom mildew occurs after extensive water use and dirt accumulation. Typical bathroom ventilation systems and access to fresh air is limited, so mildew is given an ideal environment to thrive. It ends up being one of the easiest stains to develop but also the hardest to clean. Here are a few easy-to-follow steps in ridding mildew stains in the bathroom:

The first thing that is necessary to ease the pressure involved in this labor intensive job is the soaking of the mildew. This is done by adding 2 teaspoons of baking soda to an empty spray bottle and then pouring half a cup of lime juice on it quickly. This alkaline and acidic combination will cause a foaming reaction inside of the spray bottle. You can now spray the contents of the spray bottle on every mildew build-up in the bathroom. It provides a soaking action that will cause the mildew to lift off the surface and make the areas a bit easier to clean. Leave the lime juice/baking soda concentrate on the penetrated areas for at least 15 minutes before the manual cleaning process begins.

After the soaking process has been completed, it is now time to put on the rubber gloves and use the lime/ baking soda solution bottle and fill it with water. Re-Spray all the spots that were sprayed before but this time with water.

Toothbrush bristles come in very handy to tackling all those hard to reach stains. Every so often, dip the cloth into the bucket of water, squeeze and then wipe down all the areas that have previously  been scrubbed. This will give you a chance to see all the progress you have made thus far, as well as provide additional incentive to keep on working hard. A metal scrubber can be used in extremely tough mildew areas.

And speaking of metal, some of the most polite, considerate fares I've driven in my limo were members of the heavy metal bands Anthrax and Megadeth. It's true! They're total gentlemen.

Stay safe, kids!

An Open Letter To "Nyosha G"

Dear Nyosha G,

Thank you so much for the wonderful package from Like your sticker on the side says, it was certainly packed with pride. I have never seen a showerhead so meticulously prepared for shipping the way you lovingly prepared its uncertain journey. You certainly take *PRIDE* in your job.

A couple of questions: That one loose sheet of paper among all the packing peanuts that had the hand-scrawled message "PLEASE HELP ME" in crayon. That was a joke, right, Nyosha? Thought so! Good one! LOL

Also, along the side of the box, there were some odd numbers that didn't match my tracking number. They looked like this:

6.1750° S, 106.8283° E

Now, my husband tells me that those are actually global coordinates to a small sweatshop in Jakarta, Indonesia, but he's an X-Files fan, and you can't trust him with his silly conspiracy theories!

Anyhoo, I just wanted to thank you for packing such a wonderful package, Nyosha G.  The showerhead will be a lovely present for my Aunt Hazel, and I'll be sure I'll tell her "hey" for you!

Take care, dear!
