Store Clothes In Your Closet, Not Dust

Household dust are tiny particles that can add up to big problems. Dust may look harmless, but look at it more closely and you are likely to see nasty components such as dust mites, dust mite excrement, pollen, toxic chemicals, and other materials that can cause discomfort, trigger allergies, or even cause or worsen serious illness.

No matter what kind of closet floor you have, closet dust can be minimized if you eliminate all the clutter. Do you really need those college t-shirts frayed around the neckline, or the cowboy boots you used to wear line dancing, or the Trivial Pursuit game you haven’t touched since you got it for Christmas however many years ago?

Where to Live on Captiva Island

Captiva Island is basically a sister island to Sanibel and is a quiet and unique way of life that pose a large draw for retirees as well as a charm for all ages. North Captiva is a unique section not accessible by vehicle and it's one of the biggest factors that make these two beautiful Florida islands completely different. The only way to get to North Captiva is by boat or a small propeller aircraft. This remote destination is a unique place to call home and because of it, you'll find significantly lower price ranges than those on neighboring Captiva and Sanibel.

But just because North Captiva is remote, doesn't mean that the rest of Captiva Island isn't...
