Wise Wisdom From Wise Seniors: Cleaning Hacks

One of the perks I have been able to enjoy over the years of owning and operating my own home care company is that I get to meet many remarkable people. Seniors are extremely wise, full of colorful stories and generous with their time and words of advice. I have been fortunate enough to hear words of wisdom on every subject from love, marriage, life, and yes, even cleaning!
