Does anyone watch Masters of Flip? This is my favourite reno show. Kourtney has great taste and I love her relationship with Dave. And Kevin and Chase and of course the landscaper who's name escapes at the moment.

My cable has a station called Makeful that airs The Great Interior Desing Challenge, a British show that I really enjoy. Anyone watching?

I love this show too...another show where they seem to be having fun while they work. So many offbeat personalities (especially the landscaping guy)

I'm pretty much addicted to HGTV. First question I asked Bell when I signed up with them - will I get HGTV and the Food Network?

Son calls these "the old people stations"

I saw an article saying the TLC is bringing back Trading Spaces. Nothing if it will have any previous cast members or not. Would like to see Paige, Frank, Vern & Edward again and hope the budget would be at least $2500.00 vs $1000.00.

Watched the first two episodes of Flip or Flop Vegas. So far, not too impressed. To me, it seemed like they do renos on the cheap

Will give it another week or two before deciding if I want to keep with it

Decided not to follow Flip or Flop Vegas after the third episode. Again didn't like the cheap way they work...but this time they did something that, IMO is dangerous. While redoing one of the bathrooms, they put the outlet BEHIND THE FAUCET AT SINK LEVEL! How that would pass inspection, I don't know. It didn't even look like it was GFCI

Next! (Sadly shakes head)

Despite how much we take care of the carpets, something accidentally fall on the carpet and the hard cleaning process makes the carpet looks old. This is a common issue faced by all. So I thought to start a thread on safe carpet cleaning tips.

Here are the tips that the carpet cleaning service providers follow:

Don’t rub the stains
Gently soak up the stain using a cloth or towel. The spread the stain by rubbing. The rubbing causes the particles to get into the carpet fibers.

Club Soda Process
Club soda is very effective in clearing the beer and wine stains. The mixture of white vinegar and water is also a recipe to remove the stain Spray the mixture over the stain and soak up the solution with a cloth or sponge.

Shaving Cream
Ordinary shaving cream works well on carpet. They clean the carpet without leaving any marks.

Love love love the new HGTV house. Too big for me to live alone in it, and I would have to add an elevator. would be a little scary to have to use the tacoma bridge to get anywhere, Isn't that the one they used the video of to show us how a sine curve worked and the bridge fell apart?

yes it is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tacoma_Narrows_Bridge_(1940)

Random home improvement show thoughts...

Trading Spaces starts February 7 I think, and it does look like they are bringing back a lot of familiar faces.

I didn't like Home Town in its first season (she bugged me) but the show and the stars are growing on me...and I have loved some of the old houses they have to renovate in their town.

I have the commercials for the new "Flip or Flop Nashville" - the unique thing about us is that we are no longer a couple. Seriously? That's the best you have? I find that horribly off-putting. Doesn't make them any different from Tarek and Christina because now they are no longer a couple!

But Roxip Tarek and Christina keep acting like they are a couple on the show, I find that just odd.

I quit watching because I just kind of burned out on the flip or flop shows (although I do catch the Fort Worth version every once in a while although I don't like the way they decorate the houses (too ostentatious for my taste but the couple seems nice and I enjoy seeing places that I've been to)). The Odd Un-Couple.

Tarek and Christina were always a little odd - now they are even odder I guess...LOL!

Fort Worth doesn't decorate to my taste either...too out there. Maybe I'm just getting old

I might try the Nashville one just to see what it's like
