Home Hints


When cleaning artificial flowers
Don't work on them for hours and hours!
A bag and some salt is all it takes;
Add the flowers and give a few shakes.
Turn them out and they will bloom
Bright and clean, brightening your room.
Celery wrapped in kitchen foil
Will last for weeks and never spoil.
If food is stuck in your frying-pan
And you do the very best you can,
But wire-wool simply wont remove it;
Nothing you do seems to improve it;
Detergent used for washing-up,
Plus some water, about a cup,
Boiled in the pan will do the trick,
Your pan will sparkle, double-quick.

Music while you housework here:

See   tomorrow's blog for a curious instrument.

Thank you for what you did;
You didn’t have to do it.
I’m glad someone like you
Could help me to get through it.

I love these hints, Brenda. Especially the celery tip - I will certainly use all above! Have a good weekend.

Love the hints, but most of all love the poem.
