Home Living : December 7th 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, December 7, 2010 5 That's a wrap then HOMELIVING Part of the pleasure of a present is the wrapping and this Christmas, why not make that wrapping the star attraction? It's a great way to get even more out of your gift giving and receiving -- and a chance to help the environment. Instead of buying new paper and gift tags, there are lots of ways to get a little more creative. * Try wrapping presents in tea towels, pretty scarves, a funky T-shirt, cushion covers or a fabric shopping bag. That way, the recipient gets two gifts in one. * Newspapers, comics, leftover wallpaper, sheet music and maps provide a good read after the pressie has been undone. * Secure gift bags with cute hair ties and ribbons, recycled twine, a string of beads or a tape measure. * Brown paper and brown paper bags can be dressed up with stamps, glue and glitter or stickers and cut-outs. * Banana leaves, strands of ivy, scraps of textured cardboard, dried flowers, sticks of cinnamon, star anise and whole nutmeg all add texture and taste to your presents. * Recycle plain boxes of all sizes and give them a fresh new life with a coat of paint and a pretty ribbon or string. * Use some of those pieces of fabric that have been collecting dust in the cupboard to make simple bags or purses. Add a drawstring tie at the top and it's not just pretty, it's useful. * If you have a large present and several pieces of paper that aren't quite big enough to wrap the present, try layering them for a stylish look. * Recycled crepe paper, tissue paper, Cellophane and even a leftover twist of organza or tulle tied with a satin ribbon all make a pretty picture.

TRADE IN YOUR OLD BLINDS FOR A MINIMUM VALUE OF $100 BEFORE Revitalise Your Tiles & Hard Surfaces! The great thing about tiles is that they outlast many other floor coverings. Unfortunately, over time, dirt can become ingrained in the tiles and grout joints, which can be very hard to remove by home owners. At Tile Cleaning Solutions, we have a way of cleaning that "hard to remove" dirt from tiles. The process we use utilises hot water at high pressure to remove all the in-ground dirt and oils from the tiles and grout joints. A powerful vacuum simultaneously removes the water and dirt from the floor, leaving it totally clean, just like the first day the tiles were installed. It sounds messy...it isn't. Because all the cleaning is completed in a dome that is attached to the floor, there is no mess or overspray. We can clean and/or seal all internal and external tiles, pavers, stone surfaces, stencilcrete, stencilled & concrete driveways. MINOR REPAIRS ALSO DONE BY A QUALIFIED TILER.
