If you think organizing and decluttering your home sounds like a monumental task, you’re not alone. But consider how much better you’d feel if your rooms weren’t in a perpetual state of disorder, you could find things when you needed them, and you didn’t have to sigh in frustration as you surveyed your home. Being disorganized can be stressful and time consuming, and having a cluttered house detracts from the enjoyment of the home. “How did so many people get into a literal mess?” asks Kathi Jaggers, owner of Never Be Upstaged, a company that specializes in home organization. Because she spends her professional time showing people how to declutter their homes, she has an answer to the question as soon as she asks it. “We like to collect things. The adage that says he who collects the most toys wins, seems to be playing out in homes of every shape and size. It applies to adults as well as kids. Busy lives are part of our culture these days. Most of us have less down time because of work and family schedules. Many people may not want to devote the time and energy to getting organized. But usually it’s a matter of being overwhelmed and not knowing where to start,” she says.


and Decluttering

Your Home By Nancy Miller

Creating Spaces owner Sunnie Nelson believes organization is a discipline, but one that when adopted can make life easier and less stressful. Knowing where everything is and being able to quickly get to it is a good way to start a positive day. And an orderly environment is conducive to ending the day relaxed. She and Jaggers agree that the biggest obstacle is where to start. “I usually assess the entire home room by room. The ultimate goal is to find a place for everything. The first step after assessing the situation is to tackle what you don’t need. The more that can be cleared out, the easier it will be to get organized,” says Nelson. Like other organizing professionals, she considers sorting as a key component of the process. Like objects should be sorted into piles, designated areas or boxes. For example, there should be separate assortments of things such as batteries, electrical cords, coupons, menus, beauty items, and toys. Sorting in categories often turns up duplicates, needed repairs, and in the kitchen pantry, even food that has expired and needs to be thrown away. “Sorting is very important to determine what you’re keeping, discarding or donating. Sometimes it isn’t easy for people to make immediate decisions about what to keep. I help them make those decisions by asking questions. Some questions are answered more easily than others, but they usually include inquiring what an object is normally used for, when is the last time it was used, how often it will be used in the future, and what would happen if it weren’t there? I preach the simple life. Getting rid of things helps us be a lot more simple in our lives,” says Jaggers. When someone just can’t make the decision to get rid of certain items, 17

she suggests creating a six month box or, for a larger item, a six month area. The items should be put in the box and the box labeled with a date. A date six months out should be noted on a calendar. If after six months there are things that were never removed from the boxes, it makes it an easier decision to get rid of them. There may be alternatives to keeping some items, such as small kitchen electronics that are used only a couple of times a year. Perhaps one could be borrowed from a friend or relative when it’s really needed instead of taking up space. If something isn’t going to be kept, it should be moved out of the area in order to deal with what stays. At that point, you have to decide how it will stay. Jaggers notes that clients often buy organizing supplies before she comes to help organize, but she cautions them to figure out exactly what they need before shopping for the supplies. It could be a basket, a plastic container or maybe a desk organizer,” says Jaggers. For Nelson, after sorting comes finding the best, logical “home” for each item. In her experience, she has found that one reason people become disorganized is that they have piles of things that are not associated. Another problem is that some individuals are not very visual and are not good space planners. The organization process evolves into the next step, which according to Nelson is finding storage solutions. Should a wardrobe be built? Can closet space be tripled with a closet system? “Closets don’t necessarily have to cost a fortune. I have spent as little as $200 and as much as $20,000 for closets. Closets are important, but shouldn’t be considered the only type of storage,” she says. Sometimes a free standing unit is a better choice, depending on the space. Perhaps a series of boxes and bins could suit certain storage needs. There are a variety of small types of storage that need to be incorporated into a well organized home. Labeled baskets serve many purposes, but you have to be good about not randomly throwing things in them. Sometimes a solution may be as simple as an inexpensive new product. One of her favorite new products is the ShelfGenie, which are shelves that glide out with the touch of a finger and hold items up to 100 pounds. What are some of her other organization secrets? Over-the-door shoe sorters can be used not only for shoes, but as storage for accessories, toiletries, spices, and oodles of goofy items in kids’ rooms. Inexpensive plastic drawer sorters and dividers are perfect for the kitchen, office and bathroom. To save even more money, use empty check boxes as drawer sorters. Recycled deli meat plastic containers are perfect for screws and nails. “I wish I had invented the Zip Loc baggie. I could totally do a junk drawer with baggies alone, filling them with paper clips, rubber bands, almost anything,” she says. When Jaggers consults with a client she encourages them to focus on what they want to accomplish and asks them to tell her what’s bothering them the most. It could be the kitchen, paperwork, closets, or something seemingly as mundane as finding the car keys in the morning. The next step in a decluttering project is to break down the problem into smaller sections, perhaps concentrating on only part of a room. “If someone decides they can approach an organization project only when they have time to complete the entire project, they may not even start. For some clients I recommend they set a timer for one hour. Knowing that they have a limited amount of time relieves the burden of tackling a huge project that could take three hours for one sitting. Most people agree that they can do it for an hour. I tell clients that if they’re not finished in the hour, stop and pick up another day with another hour. Or, if the project begins in the morning, stop after the first hour and get back at it for another hour in the afternoon,” she suggests. She also sometimes advises choosing only one drawer and cleaning it out. Since that probably won’t take a great deal of time, it might be 18 Louisville Home, Garden & Remodeling

done at night. It may be possible to make the decision to clean out one drawer each night. Finishing just one drawer will provide a feeling of accomplishment. She thinks it’s a matter of getting the ball rolling. She says once it’s rolling it’s much easier to keep it rolling. Improving living room and family room organization can be as simple as corralling toys into tubs or putting all the remotes in a basket next to the sofa. Or it can be more involved, perhaps playing with the placement of furniture to make the room more functional. “Bedrooms should be kept as relaxed and uncluttered as possible. No one wants to see clutter right before going to sleep or when waking up in the morning,” says Jagger. In her opinion, good kitchen organization is a way to save money because in a disorganized kitchen there is the tendency to lose track of products that are already bought, replacing them with another. Being able to quickly see what foods are in the cabinet, pantry or refrigerator also makes it easier to do a grocery list. Organize like items in the pantry together. Have a standard place where each item belongs, such as canned vegetables in one area, bread in another and cereal in yet another. Once you take that sort of inventory, you can determine if you have enough space or whether you need space savers such as portable plastic shelves that double the amount of vertical space. “Pick one area that is close to the dishwasher for pots and pans and plates and cups. Storing them across the room from the dishwasher is inefficient. Most importantly, don’t have things such as cups in three different places,” says Jaggers.

“Although the whole family doesn’t have to be involved in organizing and decluttering, everyone should be aware of the new organization so that they can put everything away in its right spot,” she adds. She likes to use drawer dividers for utensils, a separator that keeps lids organized, and pull out mechanisms in lower cabinets to hold cleaning supplies. “Frequently kitchens will have a good foot print but the cabinets aren’t utilized in the best way, so the kitchen is not maximized,” says Nelson. However, she finds kitchens easy to organize because there are such obvious categories like utensils, pots and pans, and food products. Separate the items you use all the time from those you use only occasionally. Do you have a bread maker you never use or a roaster that’s brought out only once a year? If so, get them out of the kitchen’s valuable space, and put them in a hall closet or other space. What other hints and tips does she have for increasing kitchen organization? Rolling carts that can be used as an island can have a cutting board and can be pulled pull up to the stove or pushed out of the way. Pot racks can be hung on the ceiling or wall. Ceiling pot racks are also good for attractive utensils. “Bathrooms seem to attract clutter. I use little sorters to group like items. I have one container that’s all nail products, one that’s hair products, and one each for shoe polish and makeup. All I have to do is pull a basket off a shelf and everything is at my fingertips,” says Nelson. “There are always expired products, such as shampoos and lotions, in the bathroom. Check the expiration dates periodically and pitch the products. Over-the-toilet cabinets may be a good storage option for a bathroom short on space. Over-the-door pocket organizers are good for really tight spaces and can be used for cotton balls, Q-tips, washcloths and makeup. And don’t forget hooks. They’re great for bathrooms.” Jaggers views bathrooms as quickly tackled organization projects. Although she realizes that some women prefer to keep beauty products on the vanity counter, she often shows them how different the room looks if the space is free of product clutter. She stores makeup and other grooming essentials in baskets or bins that can be stored and easily pulled out from the cabinet. One way she cleans up the ubiquitous junk drawer is by putting hair bands around a water bottle or other cylindrical shape. “I like to fold my towels in the same direction. It might be a minor thing, but it looks neater and makes you feel so much better than if they are folded and facing different ways,” she says. When Jerry Ostertag, president and general manager of the Closet Factory, consults with clients about closet organization, he begins by looking at the small details because they eventually make up the big picture. “I tell clients to invest in good quality hangers. Then rip off the plastic covers of your clothes from the dry cleaner. The covers reduce the life of clothing. The next step is to go through the closet piece by piece and ask yourself, ‘Do I still wear it or use it?’ If it is stained, ripped or has holes that can’t be repaired, or if you think you won’t wear it again, be realistic and throw it away. That frees up closet space and enables you to spread out what you have. Allow an inch or two between each hanger. Once clothes are hung properly and have enough space to drape the way they’re meant to drape, they require less ironing, and that’s a real time saver.” He urges people to mentally wrap their minds around what they want to store in the closet and think about how much space will be needed. Because the most common complaint he hears is that his clients can’t find everything or it takes them too long to find what they’re looking for, he strives for making everything in the closet visible. He also encourages the use of metal rods, explaining that hangers move more smoothly on them than on wooden rods. What else does the closet pro advise? Group and coordinate clothes in a system that works for you. It may be placing all slacks, sports jackets, 19

shirts or dresses together. Within those groups organize them by color or pattern, a way that enables you to quickly match clothing. Take shoes off the floor and group them on shelves by function or color so you’re not tripping over them and you can see the selection. Flip flops and slippers can be tossed in a basket. “We’ve done a study on how people store their shoes. Women like to store them with the toes out so they can match an outfit. If the shelves are slanted, there needs to be a toe stop to prevent the shoes from falling off. Shoe organization is almost an art in itself,” says Ostertag. Closet organization may be enhanced with specialized accessories such as belt, scarf and tie racks that tuck back into a hanging section and maximize space; drawer inserts designed to accommodate jewelry; valet rods that either pull out or hang straight against the wall; and shelf dividers that keep handbags lined up so they don’t fall over. Garage organizing and decluttering has similarities to other areas of a home. “Any time I walk into a garage, I ask, “Is everything in here absolutely necessary? I force people to point out the things they have to keep, things they would like to keep, and things they don’t need to keep. If something isn’t necessary, it’s clutter and is part of the problem,” says Bruce Palmer-Ball, owner of Garage 360. “Good organization saves time and damage to equipment. The bigger benefit is that it positively affects your mood. The garage is generally the last thing you see in the morning and the first thing you see when you get home. If you’re falling over stuff after a hard day of work or before you go to work, it can add to your stress level. I haven’t seen any hard data, but every real estate agent I’ve talked to has said a well organized garage can improve the resale value of a house. Once you have a plan and a place for everything, keeping the garage 20 Louisville Home, Garden & Remodeling

organized will be easier. Keeping up with it is where we all fall down at some point. Every plan will need some routine maintenance.” He understands that it’s possible to get overwhelmed when thinking about organizing the entire garage. So he recommends concentrating on a small section at a time, and finishing it before moving on to the next spot. He enthusiastically shares some of his best ideas for organizing a neat, functional garage: • Designate a space for everything, including tools. Once you have a plan and a place to put everything, it’s a lot easier to put things away. • Ask yourself how often items are used. Which are seasonal, such as lawn furniture and Christmas decorations, and what do you need on a regular basis? After determining the usage rate, begin deciding where everything goes. • The garage is an excellent place to utilize ceiling space by installing racks mounted on the ceiling for items you don’t use all the time. • If you cut the grass once a week in the summer, lawn tools should be easily accessible and stored so they aren’t in way of the car. • Grid and flat wall systems allow baskets and hooks, and are moveable and changeable. • Build zones for like items. For example, store lawn tools in a specific area separated from kids’ toys. • Utilize wall storage, different types of shelving, cabinetry and overhead storage. • A garage can be a dangerous place with chemicals, tools and sharp objects. Always keep safety in mind.

Savor Flavor. Celebrate Fresh. Start Your Own Container Garden Or Shop for Locally Produced Foods By Nancy Miller

The interest in home gardening, especially container gardening, is skyrocketing. In fact, the sky’s the limit for container gardening! If you aren’t quite ready to commit yourself to a major gardening project, container gardening may be for you. It can be lots of fun for the entire family, can save money on groceries and, perhaps most importantly, can provide tasty fruits and vegetables for spring, summer and fall. C. Hope Crain Gardiner, vice president of Boone Gardiner Garden Center, observes that many people don’t have the space or equipment to accommodate large gardens that were popular in the past. “As a result, container gardening has really taken off, certainly with vegetables. You’re more likely to grab and harvest a vegetable if it’s right outside the window than if it’s in the back of the yard out of site. One of the great things about container gardening is that it keeps the plants off the ground and away from rabbits and other critters. You can put the container on a table or you can bring it indoors. Everybody thinks about growing tomatoes in containers, but there are many things that are suitable for containers. If you do choose to grow tomatoes, be sure the soil temperature is warm enough to grow them,” she says. Container gardening lets you do some interesting companion planting, a kind of mini garden with more than one type of vegetable in a container. Gardiner says there are some vegetables that shouldn’t be put together, such as fennel next to dill. They won’t thrive if they’re together. The type of container you use really isn’t important as long as it has drainage and is deep enough to allow for the root growth. For a container 28 Louisville Home, Garden & Remodeling

garden to be successful, it’s helpful to understand what individual plants need. This includes the soil temperature and having a good nutrient rich soil. If you’re going to use bag soil, don’t use a soil that’s too light. And remember that there are now bag soils made especially for vegetables. Even a chef enjoys growing some of his own food. “At home I don’t have a lot of land, just a small yard. But container gardening allows me to grow some great vegetables and herbs,” says Jim Gerhardt, chef/owner of Limestone Restaurant. “I think everyone should have a bay tree because bay leaves can be used in almost everything. There is no comparison between fresh and dried bay leaves. Bay trees are a subtropical plant. I celebrate the season with the tree. If the bay tree is moved to the garage, we’re in winter. In warm weather it goes back on the patio and also serves as a nice ornamental. Rosemary is also easy to grow. I pluck and chop the leaves and toss them with new potatoes in a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper. When the rosemary tree gets big enough I use the stems as skewers for baked chicken. I also grow cilantro. It used to be a weed that they couldn’t eradicate in South America. It was the same with tomatoes. It’s funny that they are now two of the most popular foods from that area. What else do I grow? Oregano and thyme. They can be used in many dishes and they’re low maintenance,” he says. You don’t need to be an expert gardener to have a productive garden, but Gardiner provides a primer on container gardening that may help you plant the seeds to becoming the envy of your friends and neighbors:

Sun Requirements

Plants that produce leaves or roots that we eat need at least three to four hours of sun a day. Plants that produce fruit, such as tomatoes and peppers, need at least six hours of sun a day.

Growing Medium

Vegetables for Containers Beans Kale Squash Swiss Chard Lettuce Beets Peas Tomatoes Broccoli Zucchini Peppers Carrots Radishes Cucumber Spinach Eggplant

A light potting mix is best. There are many available or you can mix your own. Make it lightweight, well-drained and have it contain a lot of organic matter. If you use topsoil, mix it with vermiculite, peat or compost to lighten it.

Water Requirements

Water regularly and thoroughly so that water runs out the bottom of the pot. Drip systems and water absorbing crystals can help, but you will still need to regularly flush out your pots. Let the soil become dry between watering.

Herbs for Containers


Elements of Design

Edible Flowers for Containers

Your vegetables will require regular fertilization when growing in a pot. There are many slow-release fertilizers on the market that you can use. You can supplement them with liquid seaweed for an additional boost.

Edibles can be planted to create beautiful, colorful displays. Consider form, color and texture just the way you would when planting ornamentals.

Succession Planting

You can plant cool season crops, such as peas and spinach and pansies for a wonderful spring garden. When hot weather comes on, pull them out and pant peppers, tomatoes, basil and marigolds. Then plant kale and broccoli in the fall.

Companion Plants

Certain plants are considered beneficial companions to others. Many herbs are beneficial to vegetables. That’s another reason to grow them together. The table below lists herbs and the vegetables with which they grow well, in addition to some comments about several herbs. Basil: Peppers and Tomatoes. Repels tomato hornworm, mites Borage: Tomato, squash, strawberries Chives: Carrots, lettuce, tomatoes Dill: Cabbage, lettuce, onion, cucumber. Attracts predatory insects. Garlic: Should not be planted with beans. Repels Japanese beetles and aphids. Marigold: Beans, cucumber, eggplant, melons, potatoes, roses and squash Nasturtium: Repels aphids, squash bugs, white fly, striped pumpkin beetle, wooly aphids. Attracts predatory insects. Oregano: Beans Parsley: Tomatoes Rosemary: Beans, cabbage Thyme: Attracts beneficial honeybees The Kentucky Department of Agriculture developed the Kentucky Proud program to encourage consumers and chefs to use Kentucky products and to support Kentucky farmers. Kentucky Proud products include produce, seafood, meat and poultry, dairy, beverages, sauces, and even more categories of food.

Lavender Lemongrass Lemon verbena Marjoram Mint Monarda Oregano

Roses Sunflowers Tulips Violets

According to Kentucky Proud, and based on information from Worldwatch Institute, food transportation is one of the major sources of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. The average food item now travels at least 1,491 miles from farm to plate. Supporting local and state farmers and producers not only reduces those transportation costs, provides fresher products with more taste and nutritional value than those foods that must be shipped in, and strengthens the local economy. Some of the most celebrated Louisville chefs are the most adamant supporters of Kentucky Proud products. “The number of restaurants who use Kentucky Proud products has increased a thousand fold over the last few years,” says Angela Caporelli, aquaculture coordinator and marketing specialist for Kentucky Proud. “I like to support local growers not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because they so often provide the highest quality, freshest products. There’s a lot of talk about the Farm to Table movement as if it’s new, but I’ve been working with local farmers and producers for about 13 years. It’s fun to create menus using their products. The results are delicious and our customers love the dishes,” says Michael Crouch, chef at Bourbons Bistro. Gerhardt has long championed featuring dishes that showcase local products. “There are several advantages to using local ingredients. They’re fresh and they’re much more flavorful than those trucked or flown into Louisville from a hot house somewhere. Also, I like to defer to local farmers about their expertise on what grows in our type of soil and our weather conditions,” he says. The interest in Kentucky products is far from confined to professional chefs and restaurants. Home cooks are realizing the benefits of using local ingredients and are showing a dramatically increased interest in purchasing foods from area farmers and producers. Kentucky Proud products are available at many grocery and specialty stores, and farmers’ markets. 29

The Farm to Table movement, which promotes farmers and local food, was originally spearheaded by nationally renowned chefs such as Alice Waters of Chez Pannise in California, but has gained great momentum. “It’s very important economically. Farmers are our neighbors and contribute to the economic stability of the state. When money is spent locally it turns over and over within the state. And locally produced food tastes so much better and is so much better for you,” says Sarah Fritschner, coordinator of the Louisville Farm to Table program, former food editor of The Courier-Journal, and editor of edible LOUISVILLE. “Asking the caterer of an event to use local, patronizing supermarkets that sell local, and shopping at farmer’s markets are some of the ways to support local farmers and local products,” she says. “It’s wonderful to see people discover the taste of delicious seasonal food that is grown locally from food that has been on the road for two or three weeks.” There are times you just won’t want to pass up the bounty of local farmers’ markets. Whether you take home a luscious fresh watermelon or pack up a bag full of corn for a backyard barbecue, you’re sure to find plenty of fruits and veggies, and even treats such as fudge and applesauce.

a Child and Pet Friendly Home

side & Out By Nancy Miller

Kids running around with rampant energy and curiosity, or pets seemingly intent on leaving wet paw prints on new carpet and furniture can pose challenges in any home. Combining kids and pets can be a picture of chaos mixed with fun, but it also presents some real dilemmas about décor and safety. Is it possible to create an inviting kid and pet friendly house without sacrificing aesthetics and safety? It is if you take to heart imaginative, workable suggestions from folks who know all about the little ones, both the two and four legged varieties! Lisa Knight, of Lisa Lynn Design Services, says she prides herself on making homes as livable as they are beautiful, and loves having children and pets in the equation. “I believe in houses that are pretty but don’t look like a museum. Everyone should be able to come home and feel the relief of the day. Your home is your sanctuary. Children and pets should feel as comfortable as do the adults. I have two children, three stepchildren and two dogs, so I know what I’m talking about,” she laughs. “I consider pets members of the family, so they’re always part of the process when I design a home,” says designer Nadine J. Hearn. She takes into consideration the age of the children and whether pets shed or are allowed on the furniture. According to Knight, flooring takes more abuse than anything in the house. “Probably the most exciting flooring product in the last couple of years is ¾” hardwood. Of course, it isn’t indestructible because it’s a wood product, but you almost can’t hurt it. I particularly like handscraped, or distressed, hardwood. I have distressed hickory hardwood floors that have tons of dents and scratches but they’re not noticeable. Tile is also excellent when dirt is going to be a major issue. Choosing a dark color may be a good option since it allows the use of a darker grout line,” she says. If you want carpet even in a house with kid and pet traffic, you’re not out of luck. Knight points to the new high quality carpets that are treated with stain resistant applications and are guaranteed to be scrubable. Hearn agrees that carpet shouldn’t be ruled out, but warns against using a looped pile. She also recommends vinyl or laminate, both of which are easy to clean and are available in many styles. The character of a room can be established or easily changed simply by painting the walls. Many builders and interior designers prefer a flat finish paint because it doesn’t show the imperfections in a wall. But the problem with flat paint has been that it can’t be washed and doesn’t hold up to the wear and tear of a busy family. Knight thinks the new ceramic matte finish paints, such as the one made by PPG Porter, is a terrific solution because of its washability and durability. “I think it’s important to let kids make their own color choices for their rooms as much as possible. They grow up fast, so why not give them a few years having their own cool bedrooms? I may give children

a paint deck and ask them to tell me what colors they like. If the colors they gravitate to are extremely bright or are a bit too vivid, I might rein them in and suggest we bring the colors down a notch. We can always add their favorite colors through bedding, window treatments and accessories,” suggests Knight. Softness and comfort can be enhanced in a room by the use of fabric. Patterns on fabric disguise accidents more successfully than do solids. But that doesn’t mean that your selection of fabrics will be very limited if you’re thinking of terms of wear and tear. “No longer does a fabric have to look heavy duty for it to be heavy duty,” says Hearn. “There are some great new fabrics that can be wiped up if something spills on them. And, outdoor fabrics don’t always have to be used outdoors. Some are very decorative and are suitable for the interior. The good news about fabric is that if you can imagine it, it’s probably available.” “Toy storage is usually a huge issue. For new construction, it’s ideal to plan a deep closet off the playroom or children’s bedroom. Put shelving in the closet so toys and books can be stacked up. If such a closet isn’t possible, baskets make great storage. When you tell the kids to pick up their toys, it’s easier for them to throw them in a basket than it is to organize them in some way,” says Knight. Safety in the home is at the forefront for parents and anyone with pets. Hearn stresses that the little things can make a big difference in making your home safe for children. Kids have a way of walking, or running, into most everything. Reduce their chance of injury simply by having clipped or rounded edges on tables and countertops. 35

Countertops paired with bar stools may look attractive, but may not be practical for children who could slip off a stool. A better choice might be a table height countertop. You could even find you like it better yourself! Knight has a few other ideas to help your kids feel as if the kitchen is made for them. A refrigerator drawer is perfect for children to access juice, milk, fruit and snacks to tide them over until the next meal or for when friends come over. An over-the-range microwave could be a hazard for children. If there’s room in your kitchen, consider installing one at a level that’s easier for them to safely reach. The dangers of lead poisoning have made headlines for several years. Still an issue, it can be caused by eating, drinking or breathing lead containing substances. The most common source of lead is from paint chips built in homes prior to the mid 1970s. “In relatively newly constructed homes, the likelihood of lead is reduced, but when renovating a home, the presence of lead can be an issue,” says Henry Spiller, M.S., DABT, of the Kentucky Regional Poison Center of Kosair Children’s Hospital. He says the primary danger to children in a home is the same danger as for everyone in the house: carbon monoxide. It is referred to as the silent killer because of its potentially deadly results before being detected. He strongly encourages homeowners to install carbon monoxide detectors, preferably in the sleeping area. “Children under 6 years of age explore most of their world. They love colors and shapes, and they want to taste everything, whether in the kitchen, bathroom, yard or garage,” says Spiller. Cleaning products, such as oven cleaners and other caustic substances, are some of the most dangerous in the house. One of the most important steps parents can take is to lock up or move them up high so small children can’t reach them,” he advises. Chemical-based products aren’t the only poisonous substances that threaten children’s health. The colors and aromas of flowers and plants can be very enticing, often with serious consequences. You might be surprised to learn that some of your favorite plants should not be in a home with children. However, you can still add natural beauty to your home and garden because there are many plants that are kid friendly. Among poisonous plants are amaryllis, azalea, daffodil, jonquil, chrysanthemum, crocus, eucalyptus, hemlock, holly, hydrangea, iris, ivy species, lily of the valley, mistletoe, lawn and wild mushrooms, oleander, philodendron, rhododendron, tulip and wisteria. Spiller notes that apricot and peach pits, cherry leaves and pits, potato sprouts, and a large grouping of apple seeds are also poisonous. Non-poisonous plants include African violet, aloe, aster, begonia, carnation, dahlia, daisy, dandelion, fig, ficus, gardenia, honeysuckle, impatiens, magnolia, marigold, petunia, poinsettia, mother-in-laws tongue, shefflera, spider plant, and zebra plant. To check for other poisonous and non-poisonous plants, visit www. Spiller and the Regional Poison Center offer valuable advice for maintaining a safe environment for children: • In the kitchen, place cleaning products, dishwashing compounds and drain cleaners out of children’s sight and reach. Do not store toxic products close to food or in food containers. • In the bathroom, do not keep medicines, cosmetics, hair care products, toothpaste, mouthwash, cologne, aftershave and powders on counters or in open areas. • Install child safety latches on drawers or cabinets containing harmful products. • Keep all medications in original, child-resistant containers. • In the laundry area, keep all laundry products in their original containers. Store bleaches, soaps, detergents, fabric softeners and sprays out of reach. 36 Louisville Home, Garden & Remodeling

In the garage, store insect sprays, lawn care products, paint, paint cleaners, and other home care products in a locked area. Keep all products in their original containers. Gasoline and car products should be in a secured area or locked in the trunk. Identify all plants and keep them out of the reach of children. Store alcoholic beverages where they are not accessible by children. Empty ashtrays and keep them away from children. Maintain paint in good condition, with no chipping or peeling. Never place mouse baits in areas where children play. Instruct older children how to use the 911 system. Have the Poison Help phone number handy: 1-800-222-1222

Veterinarian Laurelee Rubsch understands that homes are full of hazards for pets as well as for children. Backed by experience and a love for animals, she has some pointers that will help keep Fido and Felix happy and safe: • The flower and leaves of any type of lily are poisonous to cats. • Tylenol is extremely toxic to cats. • Chocolate, especially in large amounts, can be toxic to dogs. • Grapes are also toxic to dogs. • Chicken bones are particularly dangerous, but any type of cooked bone is soft and can splinter when a dog chews it. • The biggest danger to cats is anything string-like, such as hair bands, dental floss, rubber bands, and yarn. Also, cats may like to play with plastic bags, but can easily ingest them. • Smoking around cats increases their risk of, or worsens, asthma and other respiratory issues. It’s like kerosene on fire. • Electrical cords are very dangerous in a home with kittens and cats. Bunnies are also very bad about chewing electrical cords. • Cats like to get in clothes dryers. Close the dryer immediately after use. • Just because you wouldn’t eat something doesn’t mean your pet won’t eat it. And it doesn’t have to be food to attract them. A tube of caulk that you may not think anything about is a big danger to a dog who takes a bite. • Always put the lid on garbage cans. • Just when you thought you knew all the dangers lurking for cats around the house, think about these! Cats seem to love to eat the wheels of Legos and those little nighttime earplugs that we might use to drown out noise! Preventing a dog from running into the street or wandering away from home can be a major safety concern. A chain link or privacy fence may not be enough of an impediment for some dogs. In those cases, an electronic fence may be the answer, says Steve Baralt, owner of Derby’s Pet Fence. The dog wears a collar that produces a shock if he leaves a designated area. Such electronic solutions are also available to dissuade dogs from eating poisonous plants or from getting into the cat litter box. “Underground pet containment is a great alternative to traditional fencing. The exterior layouts include the perimeter layout which encompasses the front and back yards, the hourglass layout that closes in the front and back yards, but leaves the space in between unprotected, and the double loop layout which includes either the front or back yard. The Gentle Steps program can train the dog to be contained safely without a hard shock,” says Burnie Knight of Pet Stop Unseen Fencing. Other pet containment systems include a pet door that operates similar to a garage door, and one that functions much like a saloon door. Its weather stripping aids in energy efficiency and it has a lock for home safety.

Choosing a Registered Builder or Remodelor By Nancy Miller

When considering building a new home or remodeling an existing home, it’s critical to select the right individual or company for your individual project. It is a decision that will help determine the quality and cost of your remodel or new construction. The Home Builders Association of Louisville (HBAL) has Registered Remodelor and Registered Builder members who: • Are informed about new products.

Checklist for Hiring a Registered Builder or Registered Remodelor

It’s also important that you become familiar with the business of a prospective remodeler or builder and that his or her experience relates to your individual project. You might find it helpful to use this checklist when choosing a Registered Remodelor or Builder member of the Home Builders Association of Louisville.

q Ask how long they have been in the remodeling or building business.

q Check for quality of workmanship and materials of previous projects.

• Must have acceptable credit history. • Appear before a committee of Registered Builders for a personal interview.

Cause Your Dog is Lazy. world famous Frisbee dogs

Nothing screams family-fun more than an acrobatic, gravity-defying, hi-energy Frisbee dog show, which is exactly why the Disc-Connected K-9’s will be performing multiple times per day on the Logan Lavelle Hunt Disc-Connected K-9’s Stage at the Home, Garden & Remodeling Show presented by Window World March 2nd – 4th at the Kentucky Expo Center. This troupe of 12 canines travel with their owners Lawrence, Jodi, and Michelle across the country each year to perform at shows, festivals, fairs, and compete in World Disc Competitions. In fact, nine of the 12 dogs are World Disc Competition Championship finalists! The most amazing part of this story is that all of the current canine performers are rescued animals! Each dog that will perform in Louisville has been rescued from either a homeless, sheltered, rescued, adopted or abandoned situation. The dogs have been provided veterinary care, obedience training, disc (Frisbee) training, and lots of love to prepare them to both compete and entertain. Most of the breeds on the team are Border Collies, Shepherds or Shepherd mixes, as well as Jack Russell Terriers – basically any high-energy breeds. This show is even more special when you consider the adversities these dogs have overcome to be able to perform these highly athletic and acrobatic tricks. The Disc-Connected K-9’s will perform multiple times each day of the Home, Garden & Remodeling Show presented by Window World. Bleachers will be available to watch the show. Also, a variety of pet-related products and services will be on display around the Logan Lavelle Hunt DiscConnected K-9 Stage. Seminars about dog training and other pet-related topics will be offered throughout the weekend.
