Happy Tuesday Sweeties:
Hope this finds you well
I am writing this on Monday,
as my Daughter Dee will be in
tonight, and I will be spending
the day with her tomorrow.
I am doing well and I and am
happy, and will be even more
happy by the time you
read this. lol
We are so thankful for these
times we get to spend with her,
and if you are a Mom who has
children who live away I suspect
you know exactly what I am
Here is #5 in my series of
Best Household and cleaning
tips I have learned over my
40+ years as a Homemaker.
If you missed the others and
would like to read those posts
you can go.....here to see #4,
and then each post takes you
to the next............
Pictures today are of past Springs
at Cozy Place.
Need your carpets cleaned?
Do your own..........
We own our own carpet cleaner
or you can rent one. We never
use soap only hot water and it
cleans very well and you don't
need to worry about soapy
residue that makes you have
clean your carpets every time
you turn around. If there is a
spot that doesn't come out just
employ some carpet cleaner,
to that area only, and then go
over it until you don't see any
more soapy water being sucked
up.We have found "Resolve"
to be the best carpet cleaner
A dear friend of ours was in the
carpeting business, he told us
to only spot clean our carpets
for as long as we could. and
to vacuum them regularly of
course. That was the best
advice I have say.
Also, if you happen to have a
shop vac, they are invaluable
for spot cleaning.
Once someone spilled red punch
on our rug, so we just dumped a
glass of water on it and sucked it
glass of water on it and sucked it
right up, with no stain left behind,
and You know how red dye stains!
You might have to do it a few
Oh.....Have any pet stains???
Shop vac to the rescue once again.
Pour a lil water on it, then suck
it up, then put "Nature's Miracle"
stain and odor remover on it, and
let it set about 3 mins. or so and
suck it up. Again you might have
to do it more than once, but it
really is like a miracle, no stains,
no odors. A great discovery!
(You can get it at your local Pet
Store, we got ours a Pet Smart
I think it was)
Also I get no compensation in
any way for saying this, it is
just a great product and think
everyone should know about it.
Tired of trying to find scissors
or Scotch tape when you need it?
Keep Scissors and Scotch tape
in a number of places within
your home. I keep several prs.
in my kitchen crock, with my
other utensils, a pair in our work/
computer room, and in the bath-
room and with my gift wrap, and
also keep tape in the kitchen,
work room, and where I store
office and gift wrap supplies
This is a real step saver and
you can buy great scissors
at Dollar Tree for just a $1.
Have to look everywhere when
it is time to wrap a gift?
Find a place to keep all the things
you need for gift wrapping so it is
one place. I use a huge shopping
bag with handles doubled to keep
all my gift bags in and I have a
basket to put all the tissue paper,
Scotch tape and scissors in, then
another box with bows and ribbon,
and keep a few empty shirt boxes on
hand as well. My hall closet works
well for this.
Need to polish some silver, be
it a necklace or some tableware?
Keep those polishing clothes that
they sell in the jewelry section at
Walmart or Target handy. It is quick,
easy and no mess or fuss........
Hate those splatters when you
are pouring a liquid into another
Whether you are pouring soup/sauce
or some other liquid or maybe
making punch in the punch bowl.
Use the back of a ladle or a large
spoon, and pour the liquid slowly
over the spoon, and it will keep
it from splattering. Learned this
great tip from some of the older
ladies in my church while working
in the church kitchen. This tip
has served me well............
Well, hope you read a tip that
sounds like something you
would like to try..........if you
aren't already employing them.
Have a great Day today and
Thanks for coming by...............
