Keeping Your Stove Top Clean

The next time your stove top is dirty (like when a pot runneths over when you turn your back just for an instant) - try using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to clean it up. EVEN for ceramic tops.

We used to purchase the expensive specially formulated stove top cleaner but really had to work hard to remove the gunk.

The Magic Eraser truly works wonders with a little water and WITHOUT needing any elbow grease! Now that's my kind of cleaning! It works for me!

Keeping Bees Away

Tis the season and I'm not talking ho-ho-ho.

We have bees everywhere right now. A trick we've learned to keep the bees away is to spray Avon's Skin So Soft. Apparently Avon re-formulated the SSS lotion to contain sunscreen and insect repellent.

We frequently have bees hanging around our hummingbird feeders and by our patio table.

By simply spraying Skin So Soft in an inconspicuous area really does keep them away. We've even spray it on the back of our son's coat in the fall to keep the bees off of him.

Another remedy we've used that works effeciently is to simply rub a bounce dryer sheet over clothes or fabric as well. It works wonders.

It works for me!
