On the Lighter Side-Simple solutions and neat ideas

My parents are here for a couple of days before they fly off to Arizona for a month.  I am very excited for them to be able to hang out with all their friends in a warmer weather (-27 when they left home).  They have had a hard year and need a good break.
The boys love to have their grandparents here.  We enjoy that they go to them when they wake up in the morning.

I love those neat tips on how to use household items in your home for other purposes.  I have come upon some really cool ones and wanted to share them.  Get a coffee/tea and enjoy these simple solutions:

  • Use a pumice stone to remove sweater pills. (I have been looking for a solution to the pilling of my new sweater).

  • After shedding soft cheese or other sticky foods, go over both sides of the grater with the pulp side of a lemon to get rid of residue.

Use an ice cube tray to store your jewelry.  They are stackable too for you Stella and Dot crazies.

Add 1/2 a cup vinegar to your bath water to soothe dry skin-and get a cleaner tub.  You can use essential oils to counter the scent.  

Have an extra wine rack sitting around? Use it as a magazine holder. (I had this one collecting dust...can't wait to use it)

Don't throw away that Tic Tac container, use it to hold your bobby pins. Bubblegum has a Tic Tac addiction and I constantly misplace bobby pins- great team!

Remove gummy stickers with vinegar.  Let it sit for 5 minutes then wipe it off....voila!

Have a happy Monday!
