Four Home Care Mistakes You Don't Even Know You're Making
December 4, 2017 | Mike Hughes
1. Using glass cleaners on mirrors. 
Spraying can lead to “black edge,” when liquid seeps beneath the reflective backing and stains your mirror. Instead, use a lint-free microfiber cloth dampened with warm water.

2. Using the wrong caulk.
There are as many caulks as there are glues, and you wouldn’t use a glue stick to fix broken pottery, according to HouseLogic. Similarly, you wouldn’t use silicone caulk on bricks because it’s made for non-porous surfaces. Check online or at a home improvement store to ensure you’re using the right caulk.

3. Over-mulching.
Mulch is great for your home, but don’t pile it on too thick. No more than 3 inches should do the trick. Otherwise, you may prevent water from reaching roots and suffocate plants.

4. Piling firewood against your exterior wall. 
Firewood against the exterior wall of a house is an invitation for termites. Stack your wood at least 20 feet from your home.
