Bags – probably the most precious accessory for women.

Coach fans should be well aware of the fabric called sateen. Unfortunately, this material tends to get dirty with ease. Moreover, the stains often remain unnoticed. As someone who buys and sells mostly Coach bags, I’m often disappointed when I get one that is photographed and described as being “flawless”, but comes to me rather dirty. In the process I've learned some tips that will help you boost your sateen bags appearance.

What the World Would be Like if Home Cleaning Didn't Exist

In order to be able to reach a final conclusion about the consequences of this, we have to first go through the past, the present and the future of cleaning. What if cleaning never existed? I will try to find an answer to this question in an imaginary world of cleanliness.

Why doing DIY?

Is it more of a hobby, or is it because of saving money? This is a question you should answer. Find the survey on the right and give your opinion.

The first questions that pops in mind, is whether the money-saving is worth it. And why shouldn't it be? Done properly, our DIY fixes won't be just quickies. The main thing, in my opinion, is that if you are fixing your personal home, possession, etc., you probably know its weak spots, you know what to emphasise on. In addition, no one knows your personal preferences better than you.

Proper desire and guidance lead the way for successful DIY

We are at this stage where you know what should be fixed. You want it fixed and the only thing left to make sure the experience will be trouble-free, is to get some proper guidance. This is where the DIY-planet wants to become your number one source for trusted information. If you want to ask what kind of tools, equipment or approach to take, this is the right place. Tackle the trouble and do it youself.  

A better understanding

Once we know why something is done, we are halfway through understanding how to do it. In no means DIY is an easy job. It requires a lot of skills, which we will later try and sum up, but proper guidance is certainly going to help even the clumsiest person.

Learning DIY Together – What is DIY Planet

Learning is a complex process. DIY is an abbreviation with an even more complex meaning.

However, we are here to have fun while learning to be DIY masters. This is why the DIY-Planet is a blog designed to bring fresh ideas, practical and simple fixes, and related materials to you.

Discussions, opinions and tips are always welcomed. This is why this blog is a planet – we want to hear from you.

“What can I expect from DIY Planet?”

This reader-orientated blog will bring a balanced mix of fun and hard work. Let us all fix our homes, workplaces, even cars and personal belongings.

Keeping this blog personal, I will share my own insights. Criticise, suggest and help me and the readers learn and improve. Become the DIY master in your home. Do not be afraid to try and fix your own things on your own.

Motivation and desire can help every person achieve everything. I will try to prove this in several ways:
  • Me fixing different stuff
  • Useful content from reliable sources
  • Showing your ideas in action
