Every year, new trends and tricks pop up for holiday decorating. And this year, one holiday question that is perplexing us is: should you be washing your artificial Christmas tree?
Maybe this idea sounds like overkill for the holiday season, but you’d be surprised by the number of holiday decorators who swear by giving their artificial tree a good rinse each year. Even if you’re keeping your artificial tree in an airtight container each year, there’s always the possibility of dust and dirt (or even bugs) sneaking their way in—after all, they’ve got eleven months to get in.
Dust will naturally build up on your artificial tree as it sits out each year too. But you probably won’t want to wash it right before putting it back in its storage container, in case it doesn't dry out completely before being stored. So if you are taking a stance and washing your tree this year, you should do it at the start of the season.
If you’ve decided to opt for a good wash, the question then becomes how you should be washing your tree. Those living in warm climates are able to simply hose off their artificial trees outside. But if there’s snow on the ground, your artificial tree won’t survive being washed in the elements. Here, many recommend simply cleaning your tree in the bath. Carefully wash the tree in sections before setting it up. Giving the branches a good swirl in a tub full of water will help to quickly remove any dust or debris.
Most tree decorators that use the bath method will also add a little dish soap to the mix. It's not super necessary—the dust on your tree will come off with a little movement and water—but if you’re already dedicated enough to give your tree a bath, you’re probably going to opt for the full salon

If you're eager to embrace a maximalist design style at home, note that the look is very much in vogue today, with many people living by the «more is more» philosophy and embracing the colorful and whimsical. That said, it's important to note the maximalism of the 21st century is a bit different than in decades past.
These days, home renovation projects are often discussed in terms of your return on investment or how quickly a project can speed up the selling process. It’s widely agreed upon that renovating a kitchen or bathroom is typically a financially responsible choice if you plan to sell because these projects typically see a great return in the form of a higher sale price—or a quicker sale.
Before you list your home for sale, you must be aware of all its potential problems. Major and minor issues inevitably crop up on inspection reports, and fixing the big ones (and some of the small ones) will help you get your money’s worth on a home.
Those of us who have spent a few years (or more) in the American West know that winter here doesn’t look like winter in much of the country. As far as I’m concerned, this is a good thing; I don’t enjoy days of gray skies and persistent snow cover. Our woody landscape plants, however, would say otherwise.
Are you busy propagating plants or trying to make your plant-cutting arrangements last a little longer? Plant cuttings involve taking a leafy plant—think pothos or philodendrons—and cutting it below a section of leaf, where you might already be seeing small aerial roots forming.
In the enchanting realm of Christmas decorations, the first step is to decide on a theme that reflects your unique style. Whether you're drawn to traditional reds and greens or contemporary metallics, your theme sets the stage for a cohesive and visually stunning display. Imagine your Christmas tree adorned with baubles, ribbons, and ornaments all harmonizing in a symphony of festive hues. Take a moment to brainstorm and let your creativity flow; perhaps a winter wonderland with snowflakes and glittering whites, or a rustic theme featuring natural elements like pinecones and burlap. Your chosen theme will infuse your space with the warmth and joy of the season.
If you’ve ever thrown your brand-new jeans in the laundry only to find that they don’t fit as well or the fabric has faded, then you are likely aware that denim can be tricky to clean properly.
