I love hunting for used furniture at garage sales, thrift stores and even on the side of the road, but before I bring any item into my home, I give it a thorough cleaning. When getting used furniture and other home items, even from relatives or friends, you want to make sure you don't:

  • bring any germs or bacteria into your home
  • bring in something that smells
  • bring any unwelcomed pests into your home
