Falling leaves mark the speedy approach of the indoor season and the dwindling opportunity to tackle pre-winter home improvements. After spending a long summer enjoying the outdoors and ignoring some of the indoor home improvement chores, fall is the prime time for projects that’ll add comfort and convenience during the months to come.
Here are several solutions for successful fall fix-ups.
A sparkling clean for kitchens and baths
A summer’s worth of dusty, grimy buildup and other stubborn cleaning challenges can be wiped away with CLR cleaning products. The powerful, EPA-approved formula behind CLR Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover
blasts through calcium, lime and rust on a range of surfaces without rubbing or scrubbing, and is free of phosphates, ammonia and bleach. You can use CLR to bring a sparkling clean to everything from tubs and showerheads to dishwashers and coffee pots. And if you’re facing stubborn grout stains, CLR Bathroom and Kitchen Cleaner
whitens tile grout fast. CLR products are available at better hardware stores and home centers.
The one-step way to paint and prime
Paint is a favorite low-cost, low-hassle means of transforming a room, and the process becomes even more streamlined with Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior Paint
. It’s paint and primer all in one, and covers existing or uncoated surfaces without the need for multiple products. A boutique, hand-selected palette of 386 Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior colors provides possibilities for every taste, and the line also utilizes NanoGuard® technology to create a denser, more durable paint film that resists moisture, stains and dirt. Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior paint is available exclusively at The Home Depot
