Having a grandson in the house is busy, and now the inside of my dryer is very colorful. Do you know how to get melted crayon off the inside of my dryer? Guessing there were crayons in his pocket and now the inside of the dryer looks like a rainbow.
All you need is some good ol’ fashioned white Colgate toothpaste. Scrub the dryer with a water dampened toothbrush and Colgate! Rinse and wipe.
I wonder what I can use for a solution to dampen my dust cloths, instead of buying a spray. I find a dry cloth just doesn’t work as well as one that is sprayed with furniture polish. Can I make my own at home? Thanks so much for your help!
For regular dusting, use either the dust attachment on your vacuum or water on a soft microfibre cloth. Each fibre of a good quality microfibre cloth is 100 times finer than human hair and is the best at picking up dust particles. You can also make your own dust repellent by combining one part liquid fabric softener with four parts water, spray and wipe. Another favorite solution; put olive oil onto a soft cloth and wipe wood, lemon essential oils may be added to olive oil for lemon fresh scent.
I am having a wine-tasting party and I would like to serve bread along with wine. Can you tell me how I can make delicious bread dipping oil? Love your website,
Absolutely! Into a bowl combine: half tsp. of crushed red pepper and half tsp. black pepper. Add 1 tsp. of each of the following: rosemary, salt, oregano, lemon basil, parsley and 2 tsp. garlic powder (or freshly minced garlic). Stir and add quarter cup extra virgin olive oil. Serve on a plate or in individual bowls along with pieces of crusty bread.
Any suggestions as to how I can soften my hands during this extremely cold winter? I am tired of chapped hands and need some kind of a home spa treatment. Toodles,
Here are two easy ways to soften your sore hands: Rub the inside of an avocado onto both hands. Or/and melt two blocks of paraffin wax on the stove in a double boiler. Remove wax from heat and when the wax is cool enough to touch dip your hands into the wax. Allow the wax to set on your hands and dip again. Repeat three times. Put your hands inside of a plastic bag and cover with a towel. Leave for 20 minutes before removing wax.
