About Leslie

Leslie is obsessed with knitting, and when possible, perfection in her knitting. All stripey socks must match exactly and all lace must be blocked severely. She has major love for all of her viewers/readers and hopes to keep blogging and podcasting for years to come.

    Hi Leslie:

    After listening to you talk about the tile in your basement, try going to Home Depot or whatever hardware store is local to you. They will have a grout cleaner that is WAY QUICKER and no more environmentally dangerous than hydrogen peroxide. They will also have a special grout cleaning brush – buy several.

    I use these on a regular basis.
