Staying at home for the first few days may seem like a vacation. You get a lot of sleep, and you get to catch up on your favorite shows. A few days kick in and you feel stuck in your eating, sleeping and watching routine. Instead of losing your hours to social media and Netflix, here are other things you can do to keep your home staycation interesting: 

  • Clean

Cleaning helps you easily pass the time with an added bonus of  killing germs and reducing the spread of diseases in your home. It could be reorganizing your closet space or simply mopping the floor. Cleaning may seem a bit tedious, but not when you use the right tools. Bona’s Spray Mop kit comes with a Bona Microfiber Pad and a Bona Floor Cleaner cartridge. The sturdy handle and grip along with a trigger that releases a fine mist makes it quick and easy to clean your floors.

  • Upgrade your cooking and baking skills

Making freshly cooked meals will help you break your routine and enjoy your stay at home. Cooking is a life skill that can drastically improve your quality of life. It helps you have control over your nutrition and save money. If you haven’t cooked anything in your entire life except for instant noodles, now may be a good time to start. You can start by cooking simple recipes and work your way up to more challenging dishes. Of course, cooking for the first time can be a little messy with  food bits scattered on the floor. Here’s a tip for kitchen interior: get hardwood floors. Dust and other allergens don’t get absorbed or stuck in hardwood floors making it more sanitary and easy to maintain.

  • Play board games with your family

As they say, family time is the best time. Playing board games together with your family can be beneficial especially to your children. It can teach them about teamwork, patience, and being a good sport. This can also serve as a brain exercise to strengthen your mental health. Playing board games is best done on the floor because you have a lot of space to work with when that Uno or Monopoly game gets a little intense.

  • Redecorate

A new look is always exciting. It doesn’t have to be a major overhaul. It may be a simple restyling of your coffee table or changing your pillows. Adding colors and plants to your space can also help boost your mood. No matter how big or small the change may be, Bona-coated hardwood floors go with any interior look. It’s unique and unsurpassed beauty never fails to show the warmth of natural wood.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR GLASS

Before cleaning the exterior surface of glass it is important to identify if you have Andersen® 400 Series products that come standard with High-Performance Low E4 glass. This type of glass has low-maintenance exterior coating and removable protective film. The low-maintenance exterior coating is highly durable but may be damaged if abrasive or hard objects are used for cleaning.

DO NOT use metal razor blades to clean glass or remove paint/stain from glass surface. Scratching of the exterior glass surface could damage the low-maintenance coating.

DO NOT use metal razor blades to remove the protective film. Peel back protective film at a corner using firgernail or clean plastic scrapper.

DO NOT allow any sealants (including silicone) to contact the exterior glass surface. Sealants may cause damage to the exterior low-maintenance coating of the glass.

DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any glass surface, or on the exterior of High- Performance Low E4 Glass.

To remove dust, dirt, smoke, film, soot and salt spray, use a mild detergent and water solution and a soft cloth or brush. To remove heavy dirt or grime from glass, first wipe loose debris from the glass surface with a soft, dry cloth. Then apply a cleaning solution, such as mild soapy water, vinegar or a liquid window cleaner, and wipe in circular motion. Remove cleaning solution with a squeegee or a clean, lint – free cloth. As a general practice, you should never clean glass in direct sunlight.

Note: After cleaning your glass, we recommend to lubricate all moving parts with a multi- purpose dry lubricant spray. Oily lubricants or harsh abrasive cleaners are not recommended.
