Two summers of intense hail storms left our window screens in bad shape, so we’ve been working on replacing them this week. Need to replace some of yours, too? Here’s how it’s done:
Large trash pick up happens on our side of town on the 15th of every month. We drove around last night to see if there was anything good out yet, and we snagged a trunk load of rocks to use in our garden. They’re actually concrete chunks from a sidewalk that someone took up, but I think they look just as good as the real deal (and I didn’t have to pay for them).
Like the cleaning power of vinegar, but hate the smell of it? That’s easy enough to fix. Just tuck some citrus peels or one of your favorite herbs in a jar full of vinegar, and let it sit in a cool, dark spot for a couple weeks. When you open it back up, it’ll smell much better than before. Transfer your scented vinegar to a spray bottle, and you’re all set to clean.
Patience pays off once again … My husband and I have wanted to replace our too-noisy dishwasher for years, but it worked well, so we couldn’t really justify forking over big bucks to replace it. Well, this past weekend we were at a yard sale, and there was a sign advertising a dishwasher that they had for sale.
