Do Not Use Netted Bags for Feeding BirdsPlease do not use any type of netted bag(s) to feed the birds. I did this for a number of years without a problem. Then one time, I had to rescue a bird that had gotten its leg tangled in the netting. It was a horrible experience for the bird and me. If I wasn't home to help the bird, it would have died from stress, cold weather, or who knows what. Use the wire square holders.

Removing Sticky Adhesive Residue from PlasticFill a container with pretty warm water (as hot as you can without it distorting the plastic container of course) and let it sit 5 minutes. This heats up the adhesive on the outside of the container. Don't get the outside (where the glue is) wet though. Dump out the water (still keeping the outside dry) and generously wipe the gluey spot with a paper towel soaked in vegetable oil.

Mail Wedged in the Letterbox - wads of mail

Mail Wedged in the LetterboxRecently we had a lot of rain and someone had posted a rolled up ton of mailers and junk in my letterbox. Of course, the papers swelled and got jammed in the opening.

It's a light yellow paint if that helps. I've tried using a Mr. Clean eraser and a mix of water/dish soap/baking soda. What can I use that won't ruin the pain, but lift the stain?
