Ready for the Snow?

It's a comin'. The word is out that we are expecting about a foot of the white stuff but thank the stars, no ice!!. I gave you my Pam tip yesterday to help keep that snow from sticking to your shovel.

Now there is a couple of good things about being snowed in.. (Please don' throw things at me!!)
1. You can eat ALL kinds of yummy comfort foods...
2. You can get a jump start on all that cleaning you have been postponing.

Now for the food.... I'm not sure what I'm gonna make this weekend.. but I would bet its gonna be fattening.
But for cleaning, I do have a couple of tips for you.

You know those annoying dryer sheets that seem to end up everywhere after you do laundry? Take a used dryer sheet and use it to clean your chrome on your sinks, your mirrors, etc. They have just enuff scrub in them to get the job done and are soft enough not to scratch anything! And they are FREE.

Also, with a Hubby, 2 kids, 2 dogs and myself, I am seeing spots of mysterious origin on my carpets. But I dont have time to clean the whole carpet (I really do ... I just dont want to )... so:
Get out that can of shaving cream.... rub some of it into the spot with a wet cloth. Let is set for 5-10 minutes and remove that stain! Works great on cloth furniture as well. (for my disclaimer~~ check for colorfastness first).
I promise I will post some pics of my zoo this weekend, so you will see just why I need to clean my carpet!

Be Blessed... even in the snow.


  1. Hhhmm, interesting tip about that shaving cream. I'll have to try that one. We ended up getting mostly ice (well, mostly slushy ice, thank goodness!) and no snow (so far) with this stupid storm. Y'all stay safe in your foot of snow (that's what you get for laughing at us last weekend!! LOL!). *sigh* I am so longing for Spring. . .

  2. Thanks so much for sharing all these really great tips!!
