Month: May 2016 Use Household Cleaners For More Than You think Posted on May 4, 2016May 1, 2016 by AgentInsure For many people, cleaning house is not on the top of the favorites list. It can be frustrating buying and using several different cleaners just to get the job done. The good news is, as long as you have a bottle of liquid dish soap you no longer have to use several different cleaners to get your home sparkling clean. Dish soap is very versatile and can be used for many more chores than simply doing the dishes. Here are 3 ways to use dish soap for household cleaning. Stain Removal If you are like most people, one of the most frustrating things about doing laundry is trying to remove a stain from your favorite piece of clothing. Instead of using expensive stain remover, simply reach for your bottle of dish soap to remove oily stains. Gently rub a small amount of dish soap on the stain before washing. Patio Furniture Although dish soap may not seem like a tough enough cleaner to remove the dust, dirt and grime that builds up on patio furniture, it is actually one of the best products to use. Dish soap can be used to clean plastic, wrought iron and aluminum patio furniture. Simply add a few drops of your favorite dish soap to a bucket of hot water and use a scrub brush to remove years of built up grime. After scrubbing, rinse with a water hose and allow to dry thoroughly. Window Blinds Do you try to clean each slate while they are still hanging over the window? If so, an easy solution is to soak them in dish soap. Remove the blinds, fill the bathtub with hot water, add a few drops of dish soap and allow the blinds to soak for a few hours. Drain the bathtub, turn the shower on and rinse the dirt and grime away. If possible, taking the blinds outdoors to dry in the sun will allow them to dry much quicker, but if the weather isn’t permissible, lay a few towels on the floor, open the blinds and stretch them over the towels to dry.

When and How to Update Your Insurance Posted on May 2, 2016May 1, 2016 by AgentInsure When it comes to insurance coverage there are certain factors that make updating your policy necessary. That being said, many people are not sure what factors make updating necessary and when or how they should update their policy. Here are some tips to help you determine if you need to update your policy or if your current coverage is sufficient. Age and marital status are both big indicators that your policy may need to change. When you reach te age of 25 most companies will offer a discount because you are no longer considered a high risk customer. Likewise, marriage also makes you less of a risk. Having children, buying a home, or updating or changing cars may also indicate a need to change coverage. Another factor that may indicate that you need to update coverage are any claims that are made on the policy. If you had more claims than anticipated you may need more coverage, less claims may indicate that you can have lesser coverage. In most cases, it is helpful to have an insurance agent on hand to talk you through the changes that may affect what kind of coverage you need, what policy you need, and what changes are being made to your policy. As a rule of thumb, reassessing your coverage every year is a great way to stay on top of coverage and to make sure you are going to have the right coverage each and every time. Your insurance is important and having the right coverage, the most current information, and knowing what you need to know about your policy can make a huge difference.
