Homemade Laundry Soap

Beam Central Vaccuum Systems

Q Power Team

When we bought this house, it already had a central vac unit installed.  When I say central vac, I mean an archaic version, with a well-used hose that barely had covering left, and a power unit that had long since lost its "power."  When the unit finally died, I was all "honey! let's patch the ...
