Timely Tips & Tricks

Grease Stains?
Try rubbing a shortening or butter on the stain and then wash as directed.

Grass Stains?

When grass stains get on clothes, coat the stains with molasses, rub in well, and let soak several minutes before washing.

Broken Mug?
Make colorful garden planters out of gently chipped mugs or cups.

Save Money.
Make a low-cost drain cleaner. Mix 1/4 cup cream of tartar, 1 cup salt and 1 cup baking soda. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into the drain and add a cup of water. Flush the drain with hot water when bubbling stops. Store extra mixture in a jar and add a label that lists the ingredients.

Keep Tomatoes Fresh Longer
Store tomatoes stem side down and they’ll last longer.

Tar on Bare Feet?
Try using a cotton ball l dipped in mineral oil. Apply light pressure to the tar with the cotton ball. This should take the tar off and it’s safe for your skin.

Beach  Tip
Decorate your beach umbrella with painted hand prints and art. This will help kids (and adults) find the right umbrella to go to.

Microwave Deodorizer
Place a microwave safe boil filled halfway to the top with water and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or a cut up lemon in the microwave. Cook on high for 40-60 seconds, then remove.

Boil water now or later? Timely Vegetable Tip

Ever wonder if you should boil the water before or after you add vegetables to the pot. Here’s a simple way to remember:

  • Vegetables that grow underground (beets, carrots, potatoes) should start off in cold water.
  • Vegetables that grow aboveground  (corn, peas, greens) should be placed in boiling water.
