D.B. Tip #6

Tidy D.B. – a great use for one of those small crockpots!  I think they’re called “little dippers”.  I have one for heating herbs in oils…and it works great for this perfect little D.B. Tip.  Did you know you can use your crockpot as an air freshener?  Seriously!  Who’d have thunked it?  Morning sickness has been very rough the last couple of weeks…and smells have been the worst culprit.  I ran across this perfect idea at A Year of Slow Cooking and can honestly say it’s been a HUGE blessing.  Continue reading


D.B. Tip #3 & #4

uhand Tidy D.B. Tip: I have discovered the best cleaning and dusting cloths!  I’m probably the very last to know this…but just in case I’m not, I’ll share my find.  Ok…I can’t take complete credit because someone had recommended using them to make my own swiffer cloths.  But I discovered how wonderful they are for cleaning…for myself.  I used one out of almost desperation to clean the floor of  the bathroom the other day and was amazed at how easy and quickly the job was done.  And the best part was how quickly the baseboards cleaned up!  My house has horrible baseboards…horrible in the fast that dust and dirt accumulates there and they’re horrible to clean.  I love the microfiber cloths…I don’t think my baseboards have ever looked so good!

I plan on making some swiffer cloths…trying to make some swiffer dust cloths…and make some other things as well.  When I get the design all figured out I’ll share.

Oh and a Provident D.B. Tip: Costco has a huge pack of microfiber cloths for a good price.  They’re in the auto section…sold as auto cleaners.  And they’re a bright yellow color…but that’s a minor point if they do a good job…at least for me.
