Not the diet cola or 60’s hallusingenic kind!  Plop away poop n whiz with an Alka Seltzer Tablet.  Let sit for 20 minutes or so while you shower, shave or blow out your hair.  Finish with a swish and swash with a mani-friendly Clorox Toilet Wand w/disposable head!

People aren’t going to notice minor stains on items like your jeans which don’t show much dirt but they will notice if your stuff stinks. Use long lasting scent boosters  in your wash to keep clothes smelling fresher longer so don’t have to wash as often.

Clean ‘n steam salmon! Fill the dishwasher dispenser (NO dirty DISHES PLEASE!) with Country Time Powdered Lemonade Mix to get rid of streaks and other gunk.  The citric acid is the key.  At same time you run a full cycle poach filets of salmon so you don’t have to cook din din later. –Yeah! Here’s the recipe 

  • Season salmon with butter, splash of white wine, capers and salt ‘n pepper to taste.  Feel free to put a slice of lemon on top!
  • Wrap tightly in aluminum foil or aluminum pan
  • Run through full cycle as clean
  • Viola! Clean Cuisine ☺

Morning Make-Up Call

I don’t know about you but a lot of my makeup cases look alike so I’m constantly opening, closing and rummaging through my make-up bag. No more! With or without my contacts in or first cup of coffee I can find what I need thanks to labeling them with my handy dandy Brother’s PTouch Label Maker!
