Tuesday Cleaning Tip


A cleaning tip, or two, that you may find useful.  As I say on my Web page, these are tips that have been emailed to me, or that I have found on the Internet.  I have not tried all of them and cannot guarantee their effectiveness.  If you do try one and it works, or if you have another one that works for you, let me know.

Odor-free Car: Place a few briquettes of charcoal under the seat of your car to absorb odors and keep it smelling fresh.  Make sure to use the type without the starting fluid on them or your car will smell of fuel.

I think I am almost done with all the Christmas shopping.  I need to finish for my oldest son, something nice for mom...yep, then I will be all done. 

I finished up my shopping for Ray yesterday.  Rylie and I went to the mall and saw Santa Claus.  She wasn't too sure what to make of him.  She wasn't really scared, just a bit cautious. 

She did sit on his lap with no problems.  We got a good picture too.  I just can't scan it because my scanner is not compatible with the Windows version on this computer.  And my computer is so old that it doesn't even have USB ports, lol.

Ray said I should use my camera to take a picture of the picture...lol.  Okay, if I get real desperate I might just try that.  Or not.

Yuck!  I just got an e-mail from the local television station.  A weather update.  It says that with the low temperature and the winds, that the wind chill this morning has been between -10 to -20.  Sounds like a stay inside, wrapped in blankets kind of day.

Well, ya'll stay warm!

Oh that charcoal thing works, aye?? You know what I have heard, is to put a box of dryer sheets underneat the seat of your car, they work as an airfreshener too... but the absorbing odor part... whoooaaa... that is fancy. :)

Thanks for the tip!
