We all know families who are very tidy and organised. I often wonder when I visit these homes, how exactly do they manage to keep their floors so clutter and dirt free . . . My neighbours are particularly good. They have teenagers in the house too – with their very gorgeous labradoodle dog. She has very a pretty shaggy ginger coat and she’s huge. I think they were very clever when they bought her – she doesn’t moult or shed hair. Now that’s my kind of dog. Whereas the other neighbours have two small dogs, one generic white fluffy terrier and a miniature daschunt. These are both extremely excitable and go boucing around and happing fiercely as often as possible. Both sets of neighbours are on the same page where cleaning is concerned. Hire the services of a tough carpet and domestic cleaning agency. They work miracles and the carpets come up soft and sweet smelling.
