This page is for all of those ideas, tips, and tricks I find (or come up with on my own) that are not enough for a full blog post themselves, but are too important to leave out. Check back here often to find what new tips and tricks I've found!
Tips for Kids
- Boiling water on the stove with a few slices of lemon and a few sprigs of rosemary helps remove those unwanted smells in the house (such as diapers and garbage..... assuming you have removed the offending substance first).
- Use Olive Oil and a soft cloth to get water marks off of stainless steel appliances. Just rub on the oil with one cloth and buff it off with a clean cloth. It makes them look brand new! (And no greasy residue).
- Keep a scrub brush with a fillable handle in your shower (filled with equal parts vinegar and Dawn dish soap) so you can scrub the tiles while you are in there. Or as I do, have the kids scrub the tiles during their showers. They think it is the best thing ever, and I don't have to scrub the shower anymore!
- Make a big batch of scrambled eggs. Assemble burritos with eggs, cheese, and any other ingredients you like. Wrap each burrito individually in plastic wrap or foil. Freeze burritos in freezer bags. Quick breakfast on the go! Just heat up the burritos in the oven or microwave (no foil in the microwave, of course) while you get ready and your breakfast is done. Great for those mornings when it's a challenge to get the kids ready for school and out the door on time.
