Monday Cleaning Tip: Dusting.

I love & use this duster as its handle is xtendable & the dusting arm is movable.

Coles regular price: $12.

The dusters are disposable.

I have found a cheaper, but just as good duster at Bunnings. Glitz 5 pk.

Did You Know?

Many people do not dust their door frames, tops of doors or ceiling fan blades.

These retain dust which leads to health issues.

Regular dusting of all areas of a home, helps reduce the health risks.

I even dust Laundries, Bathrooms, Lavatories.

You can dust inside your car, boat, caravan, anywhere dust settles.

Added Tip:

Wiping down these surfaces with an anti bacterial cloth, provides added protection.

Coles brand 100 pk does an amazing job.

To remove cobwebs or dust high areas, use a long handled broom. Please ensure someone is there for safety.

I also suggest wearing PPE




Safety First Always.

Hope this has helped you all.

Tomorrow: Saving Water When Moping.


Cancer Sux.

Wilma Fay Jensen 18/09/1939- 30/07/1991.

As I write this, I’m crying thinking about my mum.

30 years ago today, I lost her to Bowel Cancer.

Because of my sister, I feel mum died earlier than she should have.

During mums time in hospital, in Sydney, I was unable to visit.

As my parents owned a Mixed Business in North West NSW.

When mum was released, she spent much of her time in our upstairs flat.

It was hard watching her go through this as she had previously been an active person.

I had no one to support me.

As I was male, was not allowed to show my emotions, and bottled them up.

My last conversation with mum was hours before she died.

Driving back, I had to stop and let loose my emotions, because I knew it was the last time I would see her alive.

Dad never knew, I’m aware.

My grandmother paid for the funeral, as such, mum is buried near her father.

Please, if anyone has any symptons, get checked out immediately.

Life is too short to allow these awful diseases to take control of us.

Getting checked out early and having regular tests, hopefully can prolong your life.

Pic is last taken with all 3 of us, at my 21st, in 1986, yes that is my ugle mug in the middle



Is a 2 way street, & if you want to be respected, you should show respect to others.

Growing up, we were taught to respect our elders, which I did, however, most of them never respected anybody under 18, which sucked big time.

We are all Human Beings & as such, are entitled to basic equal treatment by everyone.

Before COVID, many people felt the need to look down on those they did not feel were worthy of their perceived respect,

However, since the pandemic began, most of those menial jobs, have now become the most important to some:


Transport Workers,

Retail Workers,

Vehicle Repairers,

Contact Centre Operators (My Current Job),

& many more.

None of us know if we will be forced to work in any of the above jobs, because circumstances can & do change, so a job you may look down on today, could be yours tomorrow.

Therefore, please have


As someone who has been misunderstood most of their life, I strongly encourage you all to never believe everything you are told about someone, instead talk to the person involved, because who knows what they are going through, they may surprise you.

External Looks fade, internal stay the same.


This blog is inspired by a Castle episode, Link below.


Many people are sceptical about things they are unable to either see or explain.

I was the same for many years, until Claire Baire passed away.

I started feeling like I was being guided by others, because when I would change direction suddenly, something would happen.

My honest opinion, there is a lot we don’t know or fully understand about the universe, yet.

Here is an example of a weird occurrence:

I plan to have a portrait painted of CB & hung in the foyer of the office of MCC.

I’ve dreamt about the portrait.

Recently it was CB’s birthday, her sister posted a photo of her.

I was shocked, as it was similar to what I dreamt.

Another thing, I’m writing a novel about our relationship, & before this photo was posted, had written a description of CB, which was almost spot on.

In the past, I would think of a friend, who within minutes, would either text or call me.

Same thing happens with my BIFF (Best Internet Friend Forever), I will be offline, but then suddenly have the urge to turn on my Internet, then see them send me a message very quickly.

Strange as this may seem, however, I also believe in numbers being signs too.

To me anyone who is cynical, is a Close Minded person.

I accept most refuse to accept anything they can’t see, & that is fair enough.

Honestly, if a person is in tune with the Universe, they will see the signs, those who are not, will not see them.

I highly recommend everyone reading this to have the following:

Open Mind,

Open Eyes,

Aware Of Your Surroundings,

Open Heart.

Cynics, to me, are Toxic people, because they only see problems, not solutions, & are very Negative.

If I have offended anybody with this post, I apologise, however, wanted to express my personal opinion.

Wishing everyone an amazing week.

PARENTS. β˜•πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜πŸ°πŸ€©πŸ₯°πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ’πŸ’‘πŸ’žπŸ’–πŸ’πŸ’˜πŸ’ŸπŸ’€πŸ‘ πŸ₯Ώβ›‘

As usual, what is written below is my personal opinion.

An example of a toxic parent is the movie: ” Ma & Pa Kettle, Back On The Farm.”

The following is my own personal opinion.

I’ve found many parents will not accept their offspring have grown up.

Once someone reaches 16, they should be allowed to start making their own decisions, whether good or bad, but that’s how we learn.

I will advise to tell them to be safe though.

Never meet someone alone, or in private the 1st few times, always meet in public, with CCTV prevalent & support people watching too.

I’ve also found that many parents will lie, to manipulate their offspring, sometimes guilt them too.

Please don’t get me wrong: Its nice, but sometimes, being overprotective, can smother or restrict an offspring, and they will rebel, or worse.

I’ve seen it happen.

Overprotective, to me, is another way of controlling an Offspring.

Now, I’ve never been lucky enough to become a parent, that choice was taken away when I was 16.

But, as an outsider, looking in, I have seen too many offspring become shy, withdrawn and frightened to do anything against their parents wishes.

I was the same way growing up.
My father controlled me right up until he died. I was 46.

My father stopped me from being happy.
Parents think they are acting in their offsprings best interests,

You know what,

No, they are selfish and acting in

THEIR PERCIEVED best interests, because they don’t trust their offspring making the correct decisions.

Too many Parents are Control Freaks, Toxic, Vain, Snobbish & should listen to their offspring.

And accept them for who they truly are, not some sort of “Mini Me” version.

I know many of you will get angry and upset with me, because of this post, but I don’t care, because what is written above, is from my personal observations over the years.

I failed my parents, but worst of all, Failed the only person who counts in MY existence


Finally: Please Let Them Beeeeeeeeeeee

πŸšŠπŸ¦˜πŸ¨πŸ’πŸ”₯πŸŒˆπŸ‡πŸš˜πŸŒžβ›±πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸ€ΆπŸ₯CCM Statement

When MCC is established, I, Melissa Alison Wilma Jensen, will not earn higher wages than my Team Members.

Like my Team, I will be on $1,000 AUD per week, plus 20% super. (Full Time)

Part Time $25 per hour, 16 hours per week + 20% Super & $1 per candle made.

I believe in sharing the wealth around.

All Team Members will rotate positions, so they get valuable training & experience in all aspects of the business.

I will also be paid $1 commission per candle I make.

I don’t believe CEO’s should be earning such disgustingly high wages, when those who keep them in business, struggle.

The reason why I want to establish this business is to help everyday humans.

Because I believe everyone is capable of great things.

Annual After Tax Profits (if any) will be shared amongst Shareholders & Team Members, paid early November each year.

Just In Time For Christmas.

Will always be there for each other.

Will never say anything bad publicly.

Here’s a real story:

March 2015, A friend was overseas. They posted about their 2 favourite singers on their social media page.

Their “Best Friends” made negative comments. I supported this friend, because they are able to decide for themselves.

These “Best Friends” were not true friends, because had they had been, would have saved their negativity and told their friend privately.

I feel, because I was supportive, these “BF’s” conspired to get rid of me, which happened less than 2 weeks later.

Someone told my “Friend” a vicious lie, they believed it, but in 2018, they spread that lie online.

We never met or spoke, and I have

Written, Legal, Official Proof, that it was a lie.

I based “Chris” on the above friend, who was also the inspiration behind my 1st novel


True Friends, Will Always:

Be Supportive of decisions our TF’s make, no matter how they feel personally.

Will be there during sad times.

Will advise without making it like a guilt trip.

Accept other people in each others lives.

Advise best they can.

Listen to each other too, no matter how boring or mundane the subject.

They are there when we are sick or injured.

I’ve had 2 Great True Friends since 1987. I won’t reveal their names, just initials: AG & KS.

Both have helped keep me grounded and in 2018, AG stopped me from committing suicide.

Disclaimer: As usual, what is written below is my own personal opinion, and may vary from yours. It doesn’t mean to say that either is correct or incorrect, that’s what makes us all Humans.

I will explain.

Many of us work 40 hours per week, for 40 years, then retire on 40% of our previous income.

How many of you want that when you retire?

Not Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From a young age we are Brainwashed in to believing, the only way to get ahead in life:

Do Well In School, Higher Education,

Find A:




And accept the meagre wages of your greedy fat cat employer, who decides


We are not encouraged to seek:



Because Big Business wants to control the masses.

How many of you have enjoyed Working From Home during this Pandemic, but have been told, you must return to the Office or your work site?

Businesses only want their employees back on site, so they can Micro Manage and claim Tax Deductions too.

Every Single Every Day Winner is capable of becoming Financially Secure, if each broke free from the shackles of


Have you ever thought about a 2nd income, whereby you don’t need to stress yourself out?

There are many opportunities out there for winners seeking to increase their income and maybe put a little aside for a rainy day.

The only way to make money is by paying money.

N.B. This may be a Tax Deduction if you have an ABN. (Australia) Other countries, please check your Taxation Website.

My advice is do your research and talk to the people involved in the business.

Conduct online checks, mainly to check the businesses Government status.

As this pandemic is now allowing us to move about more freely, there are start- ups in need of funding capital, Yes MCC is one.

Because we want to help everyday winners, succeed financially, by spreading the wealth.

Here is my Personal Checklist:

Ensure there is a written agreement between the business and Investor/Business Partner.

Talk to your Financial Adviser, mainly to find the Taxation Benefits.

Arrange a chat with the business owner, either in person, or online.

N.B. I offer a free 30 minute Zoom Call, or if in Melbourne, Australia, a chat over a coffee.

Many start-ups, usually don’t have much in the way of merchandise, but will in time. I have photos of candles I’ve made and you can check out our testimonials on Google, by Googling β€œMel’s Customised Candles.”

Please be advised, if a business offers an affiliate opportunity, please do not dismiss it as it can lead to an increase in income.

Most people associate affiliate marketing as a Pyramid Scheme. PS’s are illegal.

The reason why I want to establish MCC is to not only help everyday winners succeed financially, but also employ winners finding it difficult to find work, because they may lack the training and skills needed for jobs.

Everyone deserves the chance to feel like a worthy functioning, contributing member of society.



I’m not a big fan of most Public Holidays, as most are just an excuse for people to get intoxicated & become abusive.

P/H’s only cost the community, financially, time, damage, etc.

The only P/H I fully support is:

April 25th, ANZAC DAY.

The reason why I don’t support most, is because most people will go crazy having those days off.

I’ve seen much criminal activity:

Drunkenness, which leads to doing stupid things.

Arguments over the meaning of the particular event.

Businesses paying out extra $$$$$$$$$$$$$ so employees can enjoy a paid day off, this increases costs to the consumer.

Increased costs when buying from some businesses open as they need to cover the extra costs paying on duty staff.

Honestly, employees should work extra hours during the lead up to the event, and after. 2 hours extrs unpaid work for 4 days, per Upcoming Public Holiday.

I would support each P/H, if everyone respected and observed the particular day and donated their wages for that day to a


As someone who has worked many P/H’s, I have witnessed much anti social behaviour.

When MCC is established, I will give my T/M’s the choise of working a different day that week, or additional hours, in the lead up, which will be paid in lieu. This will be in their contract, however subject to Govt legislation.

Yes, I may anger many with this post, however, I’m entitled to my

Sunday Cleaning Tip: Mattress.

Did you know? Our mattresses contain bacteria that can hurt us.
However, there is a way to eliminate, or at least reduce them.

First up: Remove sheets and blankets.

Step 1: Vacuum thoroughly.

Step 2: Grab steam mop, with a clean pad, then steam mop, just light slow moves.

Allow an hour to dry.
After an hour, flip mattress & repeat steps 1 & 2.
Allow to dry.

After  an hour, repeat.

I find 4 steams helps, this may take several weeks to fully eliminate the bacteria.

I suggest this, upon purchasing a new mattress, perform a steam mop, as it will eliminate a lot of the factory, transport, warehouse odours.

If your mattress is heavy, please get help.


Thank You for reading these tips this week.

Saturday Cleaning Tip: Bathrooms/Lavatories.

Update: To scrub floors, use a mixture of vinegar and water in a spray bottle.

Most people think using an exhaust fan will remove steam.
They remove most surface steam.
Best way to ensure all moisture has gone, is open windows for a few hours.
This will allow the bathroom to fully clear.

Upon arrival back, grab the items mentioned yesterday.
For safety, please wear disposable gloves.
I start with vanity mirror.

Then use anti bacterial wipes, wiping down the surfaces, including taps/faucet/s & outer side of vanity, discard.

Grab a blue cloth & wipe over, removing residue. Then grab a microfibre and remove streaks, this should shine them.

Next, if you have a bath, spray the bath with an environmentally friendly product, then grab a scrubbing brush and scrub the bath, then the taps/faucet/s, grab the wipes and wipe over the bath. Continue until completely wiped over. Grab microfibre, same.

Then moving onto shower.

Spray the shower screen, grab your scrubbing brush and scrub the shower screens. Grab a blue cloth and wipe over, followed by a microfibre cloth.

Next spray the taps/faucet and wipe with a blue cloth and microfibre.

Next, spray the floor, in sections, scrub the tiles until all scum removed, move onto the next section. Once completed, use the shower head to remove the residue, if any scum left, repeat, until all scum removed.

Once finished, vacuum bathroom.

Grab spray mop, place a red microfibre pad. In the water bottle, 3/4 fill with clean, filtered water, then fill with disinfectant. Place in holder, then mop bathroom.

W/C: Grab toilet brush & clean inside. Then pour some cleaner in bowl. Then use an antibacterial wipe, wipe top of seat, then cistern, under seat, outside of bowl.
Wipe over with a blue cloth only, discard.
Mop W/C, ensure a red pad.

Once floors dry, you can steam mop both areas. Please don’t use carpet glider, (triangle plastic), as it will scratch the tiles.

Once completed, wash cloths, spray mop pads & steam mop pads, separate from normal clothes. I usually add 2 capfuls of disinfectant. I also conduct an empty clean, by pouring some disinfectant into drum.

Tomorrow: Mattress.
