Continuing to work on the condo
As anticipated, I picked up my new, heavy duty step ladder/stool at Home Depot. Very happy with this purchase.
I also discovered that there are multiple, burnt out lights in the under cabinet lights (7 to be exact, I also needed 3 additional bulbs for ceiling/garage opener lights @@))-DD and I stopped back at Home Depot last night as we returned here and I bought the bulbs needed, using another 10% off Lowe's coupon; and the microwave fan screens hadn't been cleaned in a very, very long time. The entire underside of the microwave , along with the cabinets nearby were covered in grease. Ick! Lemon amonia (had a larger bottle on hand, leftover from stripping dirty wax off of the former rental's kitchen floor) to the rescue.
The beige, yes BEIGE, swill water attests to the gunk on the metal screens. I also used some of this amonia to cean out the large trash bin for the trash hauling service. It was disgusting. Now freshly scrubbed and rinsed, it's pristine, no odors. I don't understand how some choose to live. The garage has a water outlet and a hose reel attached to the wall. I had already brought my 2 rubber hoses with me, as I noted another condo resident washing out his trash bin just after the trash hauler left (we have Tues/Fri pick up-this week was off due to the holiday, so a Sat pick up). Another project done.
I keep reminding myself that my new LL cleaned this place. I can understand missing one bulb or 2, or one blows out just as you go to use it, but really? Didn't she inspect the place?
