Can you give me a recipe for homemade dog food? My dog has lots of allergies and therefore I want to be aware of the ingredients.
Love your website, Steph
Into a pot combine: eight cups water, two pounds ground turkey, one cup brown rice, one tsp. rosemary and one tsp. basil. Heat, scramble and cook thoroughly. Simmer 20 mins. Add two cups frozen vegetables and cook for five minutes. Remove from heat, cool and serve. Refrigerate or eat leftovers.
My son’s hockey bag got cat urine or cat sprays on it... yuck. It has plastic wheels and is quite large so I can’t throw it in the washing machine. Any suggestions?
Thanks a bunch,
No problem Karla,
Fill your bathtub with hot water and half-cup heavy duty laundry detergent and one cup baking soda. Soak for three hours and rinse with hot water until no traces of detergent remain.
My husband got bike tire marks on his nice light beige cotton slacks. I know that I could do the wrong thing and make the marks look worse so I need your suggestions. The material tag states 60% cotton and 40% micro poly DuPont teflon. Thank you so much,
One of the best products to combat this stain is to scrub the area with a Sunlight laundry soap bar. Wash as usual and repeat until the stain is gone. Be careful not to put the pants into the dryer until the marks are gone.
I purchased some rubber mats for my new car and I can’t get rid of the rubber smell. I’ve scrubbed them, frozen them, and poured boiling hot water on them and still they smell. Can you help?
Thank you, Paula
The problem is not on the exterior of the rubber, what you smell are the chemicals used in making the rubber. You can leave them outside for a few days, wash them with vinegar, tea tree oil and water, sprinkle them with coffee grounds or wash them in the bathtub with laundry detergent. However, even if the smell leaves for a while it will likely return. If the odour is driving you up the wall it may be in your best interest to purchase or exchange the mats for a different brand.
