Cleaning tip: cloudy glasses

Good morning!  It is Tuesday and time for another cleaning tip.

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 do NOT guarantee their effectiveness.  If you do try one and it works, or if you have another one that works for you, please let me know.
 
Cloudy Drinking Glasses: Soak them for an hour or longer in slightly warm white vinegar. Then, use a nylon-net or plastic dish scrubber to remove film. Still there? The damage must be etching (tiny scratches that occur in the dishwasher) and is permanent, sorry to say. To avoid this, hand-wash your best glasses.

The following is my horoscope today, January 5th: Capricorn

You tend to be more aware of your own feelings when the Moon is back in your sign, but this can be a mixed blessing. You might be rather uncomfortable in your own skin, as your moods change so fast that you cannot figure out how you feel. You prefer to have one emotion and deal with it, instead of having to manage your instability. Keep in mind that this dilemma is what makes you human.

My mom recently sent me a Betty Crocker page on how to make a Bunny Cake for Easter.  It's a real cute idea, go check it out if you get a chance.  While I was there I stated clicking on other recipe ideas and came across this one.  It's for a Lemonade cake and sounds real yummy.  I hope you like it.

Lemonade Party cake

1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® lemon or yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1 can (6 oz) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 container Betty Crocker® Whipped fluffy white or fluffy lemon frosting
Yellow colored sugar, if desired

1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Make cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 15 minutes.
2. Mix lemonade concentrate and powdered sugar. Pierce top of warm cake every 1/2 inch with long-tined fork, wiping fork occasionally to reduce sticking. Drizzle lemonade mixture evenly over top of cake. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen cake. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled.
3. Spread frosting over top of cake. Sprinkle with sugar. Store covered in refrigerator.
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft):
 Follow High Altitude directions on cake mix box.

I guess that's about it for today.  Have a great day and I'll see you later.

Hugs!

If your glasses are cloudy, you should make her wash them again!
