Cleaning the Porch/Deck



I've been watching deck cleaning and staining procedures online so I'm feeling pretty confident about this project.
Before you stain a deck you have to clean it--makes sense, right?

I filled the spray bottle with deck cleaner and then the husband and I took turns spraying--
our hands kept cramping up so we took A LOT of turns.

We let the cleaner sit between 5-10 minutes and then rinsed it off.
It now has to dry for 48 hours before we can stain it.


Here are a couple of other projects that were going on today...

Halloween Cookies!

Take your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and throw in all kinds of Halloween candy.

D says Some of her family's best times were found in cooking or baking together.
Your family should get rid of some of their Halloween candy and go bake some of these cookies together.
They were a big hit!

  1. Or you tell your kids you'll give them each 5 bucks for their candy and send it with Dad to work for the guys there to pig out on! They thought it was Christmas...and I don't have to get sick to my stomach thinking about all that candy being consumed by them!!!
