With a busy schedule, leaving notes and messages becomes a 'way of life'. I got tired of the kids 'not seeing' the notes I left, so I came up with a way I knew they couldn't miss. I use dry erase markers on their bathroom mirrors.
Leave Notes On Bathroom Mirror
I have a couple of pairs of jeans with zippers that are difficult to zip up. They do not zip as smoothly as they used to. I took an old tapered candle and rubbed it up and down both sides of the zipper to coat the metal teeth. Zips so much easier now!

Near the the holidays, I find myself buying more apples and oranges than usual. I love the aroma of baked apple pie or the smell of oranges. Whenever I peel an apple or orange, I throw the peel into a pan of water on the stove.

I used to put the glass votive candle holders in the freezer to 'pop' out the old candle wax and that works, but I have found a much easier way.

After using my crock pot, I had a "cooked on, dried up" mess. I filled the crock up with water, added a drop of dish washing detergent, then turned it on low. After I came home in a few hours, I turned it off and let it cool.

As a way to keep food costs down, I make sandwiches at home to take to work daily. As we all know, there are only so many 'choices' of sandwiches, which, in my case, became too routine and boring.

We grilled out a couple of slabs of 'messy', but delicious BBQ ribs on the grill and when we were ready to get our grub on, I had a box of new disposable medical gloves that I gave each person a pair of.

We all have perfumes and colognes sitting around that we no longer wear. So instead of doing nothing with them; I CAREFULLY spray, or drop, a little into the bottom of a candle votive and insert an unscented tea-light candle.

After my charcoal grill top has cooled from grilling, I spray it down with oven cleaner and place inside a garbage bag and tie shut. I let it sit over night. When I remove it, I give it a quick and easy scrubbing with dish detergent and water.

Never buy plastic containers again! I wash and reuse all the larger plastic jars (with plastic screw-on lids) that mayonnaise, peanut butter, and such come in. I use them for freezing soups, sauces, gravies, and any leftovers. They work great!
