Tuesday Tips and Tricks

When Vacuuming ...

To really get carpet or rugs clean, vacuum slowly and make overlapping strokes, about 7 or so, to get out dirt or embedded particles.

Always check the bag before you begin because if it's full, you are just wasting time.

Left Clothes in the Dryer Too Long?

When you look to takeout and see that they are wrinkled, you can remove the wrinkles simply by putting a big damp towel into the dryer with the garments (don't overstuff). Dry again for about 15 minutes and take out immediately.

Cheap Air Freshener...

When your kitchen stinks because of cooking smells, you can get rid of those awful odors simply by mixing in a pan on the stove a cup or so of water with 2 tablespoons or more of vinegar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Let boil and it should take care of the odors.
