Drop something small and can't find it? Place panty hose over the end of the suction and vacuum the area well. You should be able to find it fast! Cool huh?
Keeping cleaning fluids away from little hands can be challenging, unless you lock it away! Keep your children safe by using a shoe rack to hold all those dangerous cleansers you don't want them to access!
