Celebrate Valentine’s Day All Year Long

Valentine’s Day is an occasion to appreciate the ones you love, but what about the other 364 days each year? Here are 8 simple, free ways to appreciate your loved ones throughout the year.

  1. Use sticky notes to leave a sweet note for a family member. You can also put one of these in your kids’ lunch bags.
  2. Compliment them on something people may not often acknowledge.
  3. Ask them if you can take care of their responsibilities for the day.
  4. Send them a text that reads, “Thought of you today and it made me smile.”
  5. Make it their day. They get to choose breakfast, lunch, dinner snacks and all activities (within reason).
  6. Really listen to them when they talk, even if it may not interest you.
  7. Praise them in front of others.
  8. Watch their favorite TV show or movie together.


Say I Love You With Chocolate

Chocolate lovers rejoice. More than 36 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate will be sold for Valentine’s Day. Curl up on the couch with your box and don’t fret if some of it falls on the carpet.

Follow this technique recommended by Stainmaster® carpet manufacturer for removing tricky chocolate stains:

  1. Scoop up and blot as much of the stain as possible. Vacuum dry particles.
  2. Prepare a vinegar solution of 2 tablespoons vinegar to 4 cups warm water.
  3. Test the cleaning solution on a small spot of carpet to make sure it doesn’t discolor or damage the carpet. If this occurs, you should call a professional at ServiceMaster Clean to remove the stain.
  4. Apply cleaning solution to cloth and use cloth to apply to carpet. Work from outside of stain toward center.
  5. Leave the cleaning solution on the carpet for at least five minutes.
  6. Blot with a white cloth until no more stain transfers to the cloth.
  7. Rinse with cold water.
  8. If you still see the stain, repeat blotting process until the stain is gone.
  9. If the stain remains, call ServiceMaster Clean for help.
