Try scrubbing them with baking soda, rinse, and soak overnight in peroxide. This is what I use to clean my dentures

Removing Rotten Meat Smell from Freezer?
Use hot water in a bucket, add clorox bleach and dawn. Leave the door open over night after wiping it clean. The smell will be a thing of the past.

Reusing Febreze Candle Jar?
If it was used for a candle then dont drink from it! Use it to make more candles, or as a vase, or to keep small soaps in, etc.

Orange tabby laying on grass

Gunter (Orange Tabby)
Thanks guys. I think he is really beautiful too. Since I posted this, both my husband and I have gotten him to take treats from our hands. He was extremely cautious about it! He came inside once too, about eight feet, got scared again and darted out. We have...

 

Orange tabby laying on grass

Gunter (Orange Tabby)
I have to admit that the squirrels are more difficult for him to get a hold of, but he chases them away from the feeders at least. He will run up the side of a tree after them, but always jumps down at a certain point, no rodent in mouth.

Gunter has a self heating seat pad that we put under his sleeping bag in November. We removed the pad in May, cleaned up under the porch as well. He seems very happy now. I am glad he still hunts even though we are feeding him. He gets Purina Naturals and some...

How lovely. I hope you have it mounted where you can see both the painting and the real scene. Are you going to matte and frame it? Your beautiful painting is crying out for that. What a gift your father has!

 

A brightly colored oriole at a birdfeeder.

Wildlife: Oriole at the Feeder
We started getting a more varied bird population when my husband switched to a higher quality seed, plus we do quite a bit of gardening. In return, we get to see many different birds year round. This is the 1st male hummingbird arrival this year, for example...

Dear Pennypacer, I have the oriole feeder on a shepards hook. I cut an orange in half and bore 2 holes about an inch apart, and then I put a peice of twist tie through them so that both ends are protruding on each side of the navel on the skin side. I then...

I like the idea of a breakfast bar and white cabinets also, but I would go for a zippier color than beige for the walls, and still keep them light. You might want to paint the ceiling a darker hue than the walls and install white crown moulding all around to...

Microfiber Fabric on Couch Looks Hairy?
Maybe shaving the furniture would work. Use a battery powered lint shaver, a large one. I have a small one made by Singer, and it still works great after at least 10 years. You might have to do this again and again, because the fabric will continue to shed...

Use Sanitizing Bleach Spray

Removing Acrylic Craft Paint From Clothing?
Once acrylic paint gets on fabric, you cant get it off. Its permanant. Works better than dye if you want to color a shirt or something. It can actually make fabric last longer, takes less time to wear out.

Repairing a Bleach Spot on Clothing With Permanent Ink?
If you can, use acrylic paint. You may have to mix the right color. Use a very stiff stencil brush and work it into the fabric. (Put a piece of cardboard underneath first) This kind of paint is permanent once it dries, never bleeds, never fades, and you can...

Advice About Dyeing Clothing?
I dont use dye. I use acrylic paint. It is much more permanent and you can get any color you want, mix whatever color you want. I thin out the paint with a little water in a small cup, and then I pour warm water into a large bucket, adding the diluted paint...
