Ran Out Of Laundry Soap?
Need to do a load of laundry and you have ran out of laundry soap? Here are some ideas that may help.
Things To Consider When You Buy Something
At least it is for me! When I am thinking of buying something, I make myself stop long enough to consider the following questions:
Freshening Your Air Conditioned Air
Attach a medium white thin cloth to indoor air conditioner filter with perfume or spices sprayed on it. Use your imagination.
Reusing Headboards for the Garden
Old brass or wrought iron headboards can be used as trellises in the garden and also add a touch of whimsy to the overall landscape look.
Sydney (Australian Shepherd/Collie)
This is my dog Sydney. I rescued her from the animal shelter when she was 10 weeks old. She will be 2 in September. She's an Australian Shepherd/Collie mix. Sydney loves to play ball!
Saving Money on Your Wedding Cake
We saved money on the wedding cake because we ordered a very plain cake. It was only frosted with pearl frosting edging. Then we took left over live flowers that were not used in the wedding and decorated the cake.
Boil potatoes in salted water to cover until tender. Add cream cheese, sour cream, garlic salt and pepper. Blend well. Spread in buttered 9x13 inch baking pan. Refrigerate or freeze. Garnish with chives and paprika.
Hash Brown Potatoes
Mix potatoes, milk, soup and sour cream together. Season to taste. Spread in 9x13 inch pan. Cover with cheddar cheese and drizzle melted margarine. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.
I used all left over mashed potatoes to make potato puffs. I season the mashed potatoes up with garlic powder, minced onion, salt and pepper. I then combine the potato mixture with cracker meal, and one egg until it can form a ball.
Trim cauliflower and core the stem out of it. Steam until tender but still firm. (poke a bamboo skewer in it as if testing a cake)
Getting a Hoya to Bloom
If you are having trouble getting a Hoya to bloom, try it directly in a west window and remember when it does bloom, let the blossoms fall as another will take it's place in the same spot on the vine.
Only Half of Electrical Circuit Works
We recently purchased an old home (105 years old) and one day half of the lights on a circuit stopped working. They stopped when I turned on a sconce and it shorted and blew the circuit breaker. Half the lights on the circuit went out, not to be seen again.
Gasoline Smell on Wicker
We recently bought white wicker furniture to use in the sitting room attached to our bedroom. Unfortunately, it gives off an odor similar to a gasoline or motor oil product. We have spray painted it and the odor still persists. How can we get rid of the odor? Will it dissipate over time if we wait? I worry about ingesting the "fumes" as we sleep.
