We’ve been trying to tackle some cleaning and organizational projects before the fall and winter seasons hit, especially the outdoor ones. Top of our list? The garage.
Even though we’ve only been in our house for 9 months, it’s amazing how much gunk and grime we had on the floors. I think most of it was still leftover from the last snowstorm.
After Ben and I swept it out, we gave it a good cleaning with the AR Blue Clean 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer that I recently picked up from Ace Hardware.
It was pretty gross how well this thing cleaned up our garage floors.
Eventually I want to get a wall system for the garage,
something along the lines of this…
Well, at least until this coming winter.
Yeah, yeah… I’ll get to finishing it someday.
so you could win your own
AR Blue Clean 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer
or anything else that you fancy?
and she’s testing out this power washer today on her blog.
PLUS she’s hosting a giveaway for a $100 gift card too!

Love your blog 😀 If I had a new pressure washer, I would help my mother properly clean her deck, instead of having her do it all by hand before staining it. It would be a huge help for her bad back. Unfortunately, I’m in a tight budget so I can’t afford to buy one for her. My fingers are crossed!
