word to the wisepriceline

I’m writing this from Lloyd’s iPhone so this will be short. 8 words: don’t order a one star hotel on priceline. Full story and photos when we get home on Tuesday. While you’re waiting, why not share a handy household tip?

    How about don’t order a one star hotel period. Sorry, Lauren & Lloyd. No fun at all.

    Is your kitchen short of counter space? Use your wall space--shelves, grids, hangy things of all types can clear your counters.

    Regular Zest soap (the bar soap variety) will get grease/oil/butter stains out of clothing. Keep a bar under your kitchen sink, or next to your utility sink by the washer. It’s handy.

      This sounds great because I strongly dislike grease stains on my teaching clothes. Do you just rub it on? Does it need to sit awhile?


  3. Beth Said on:

    Just rub it on. Enough to leave a layer of soap over the stain…then throw it in the washer. Or if it’s especially bad, rinse it out and put more Zest on, then wash it. Done. ๐Ÿ˜€

    If you have rabbits eating your garden plants, you can easily get them out with a shovel.

    You’d think I’d have at least one ….. ???

    Clean as you go.

    If you raise your dryer a couple feet off the floor it saves your back from bending over all the time. (We ‘Sam’ built a simple box out of plywood.)

    “So you say you have a hard time cleaning your pots and pans?” Use an engine degreaser, it works wonders. If that doesn’t work, use steel wool.

    How long did it take you to type that?! lol… I am no good at texting. Maybe it’s just people over 30?

    household tip: to get rid of hard water stains on your kitchen taps -- wrap a few old face clothes around your taps, pour over pure vinegar until soaking wet. Let sit for a few hours. Wipe down sink area with wet face clothes … Voila! Stainless steel has no more hard water stains.. and you didn’t have to use a muscle. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey!! What happened to my hint? Am I stuck in moderation?

    Mine was -- don’t clean your glasses with tissues with lotion in them, like Puffs plus, unless you like streaky lenses.
