How To Clean Sheepskin Rugs

It never really occurred to me that I would need to clean sheepskin rugs or pelts, but I’m an idiot. Cause I need to clean E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N -G, always, because my dog is an Olympic level athlete at producing drool, and shaking his Basset-y, skin folds everywhere head which then gets all over the place.

EASY DESIGN TIP

One Quick Design Tip: Store Your Toilet Paper in a Vase

vintagedesign.me quick tip

Roll em’ up…right the hell into a vase

We all know how GALACTICALLY annoying it is to be in someone else’s bathroom and run out of toilet paper, amirite? Well this design tip will:

  • ensure that that never happens to anyone again in your own house
  • help you keep your TP lookin stylin’ and profilin’

Here’s what you need to do: take as many rolls of toilet paper as you can fit, and shove them into a big old vase!

I use a low, fat round one and can easily fit in 7 or 8 rolls. I have the vase sitting next to the toilet, and now no one in the history of ever has ever been stuck in my bathroom without a fresh roll. You can also use a taller vase, and just stack up the rolls, rather than dumping them in haphazardly like me. Really any old shape will do as long as it’s big and has a wide mouth. You can get super duper cheap large vases at Home Goods/Marshalls/TJ Maxx. My giant fat glass bowl was $9.99. #winning
