1.Easy way to clean stainless steel appliances—Stainless steel appliances seem to be stained with fingerprints constantly. But to give them a good, clean shine, all you need is a microfiber cloth (or just a soft cloth) and some rubbing alcohol. If you really want to get your stainless steel super clean, you can use a few drops of olive oil!
2.More ways to clean stainless steel—Use dish soap and water to clean the surface, dry any wet spots, and use a few drops of baby or mineral oil on a second cloth to make it shine. Spray WD-40 on the appliance and then wipe away with a soft cloth.
3.Cleaning the bathroom is not how most people want to spend their day, but it has to be done! The good news is there’s an easy way to remove soap scum and grime that’s building up inside the shower. Fill a dish wand with half vinegar and half dish soap, then get to scrubbing! You can also use an old sponge or toothbrush and just dip it into a cup of the same solution.
4.Use toothpaste to clean sneakers—All you need is an old toothbrush and a little toothpaste to get the white parts of your sneakers looking like new again!
5.Freshen up smelly sneakers—We’ve already told you why it’s probably not a good idea to wear shoes in the house, but even when dirty sneakers are sitting by the door, you can smell them from across the room! Just sprinkle some baking soda in the shoes to keep them smelling fresh, and then when you’re ready to wear them again, just tap it out outside.
Well, as you all know, it’s time for hubby to travel back east for approximately six weeks. He has his college reunion, touches base with his two older sisters as well as his nieces and nephews. Of course, I do miss him but… Any who, not this year.
I will miss having the title of Exalted Ruler of the Remote for a full six weeks. I cherish my time alone so I can watch two or three programs at one time. That “clickedy clicking” is so much fun. We haven’t learned to record shows, so in the fall it is important to figure out what all the new programs are about. This way when I finally make up my mind as to which show to watch on a weekly basis, I will already know the plot.
Hubby simply shakes his head a lot if I do it when he is home. Strange, as he clickedy clicks between HGTV, golf, horse racing, and other sports when shown. When he switches between channels, I always get nervous that he isn’t going to get back to the program I prefer in time for a punch line. Somehow, he has a built in timer and makes it about 94.3% of the time. It is that 5.7% that brings out my moaning sounds. After investing 49 minutes or plus to a program, sometimes missing that instant is monumental and can’t be regained until rerun season is here.
I still don’t know why I don’t take up house cleaning as a hobby. If I did, the remote would cease to be an issue, as my attention would be reverted to cleaning. When first married, I cleaned a lot and each time I rearranged the furniture. Hubby worked nights and would come into a dark house—OOPS! Now I don’t have the strength to move the furniture to clean under it. No way am I going to move it.
Getting on that ladder to clean the ceiling fan is becoming a daredevil adventure. But if I can reach it, I can then simply wash it down without looking up, so the balance is still in tact, basically. Adjusting to limitations is troublesome. Oh well, it is what it is. The world is not going to come to an end if the dust remains in place a few more days. I may even set a record for “depth of dust”!
