Using Irish Spring Soap In Laundry Soap Recipes

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

Curious question. Why do some recipes use a whole box of washing soda and baking soda and 2 bars of soap. (Dry) Then some only use a cup of each with the bars. Is it bad to use the whole box of each?

Getting a Key for a Murphy Cedar Chest

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

I am 84 years old and I have 2 cedar chests and they only "keep" linens and quilts that I have collected over the years. I have instructed my family to keep what they want and donate to our local Hospice as I have volunteered with them and I can see the good they do for families in despair.

How great that you found something so nice for only a few dollars and even something you would like to keep - a double winner.

I love fur babies also so I can relate to a donation for their care.
May you and your husband spend many happy years together before that "donation" happens.

My three cents worth...suggestions...

There are places online that specialize in antique keys for all sorts of chests, cabinets, etc. Google the name of the chest + keys and you will find a bunch of options. If one is local to you...that is the best choice.

Also if you have a reputable antique dealer you know/trust...she/he may have sources as I know they run into this situation all the time.

My late father used to make his own keys for old banks and such...if you are at all handy, there are YouTube videos on how to make your own keys. You can find them by Googling How to make a key blank for an antique / vintage lock

Enjoy the piece! It is very cool that you will donate it someday to help the furry kids of the world! That is awesome!!!

Thank you so much! I actually acquired it on a donation stop to the salvation army. They sold it to me for $10 as they were no longer able to open it and wanted the space in their store. I have always wanted a hope chest and other than it being locked... it was in amazing condition. I plan on reupholstering the cushion and using it in my home. My husband and I have no children but love our fur babies and upon our demise will donate it to a local rescue to use to raise funds. I appreciate the information very much!

Differentiating Between Silver and Silver Plate

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

We inherited a ton of pieces like you are describing. The others gave really good suggestions for identifying silver vs plated.

I will share my way of dealing with the pieces after I identified them....

1. If it had sentimental value (either real silver or plated) I kept it.

2. If I had no sentimental value (sadly most had no sentimental value to me) and it was real silver I watched the silver market and sold it off. Silver is low right now...but watch the market and it does go up.

3. For the silver plated pieces...you can always go to Ebay completed/sold and type in the name of the item and see what the market price is. Sadly...from experience I know most pieces have almost no value for their intended purpose.

Where I have found ways to make a little money on them is two fold...

1. Batch a bunch of them together (use a USPS one price box and fill it up) and list it on Ebay for under the title Steampunk Assembledges Silver Plated (and then list the pieces....like LOT OF FORKS or LOT OF PLATTERS). Artists use them for cool assemblage pieces.

2. If they are too heavily tarnished or damaged to be used by an artist, talk to your local scrap metal dealer and see if he/she will buy them for scrap. We have one dealer locally who takes items like this. I have a pile in my basement waiting for a trip to the city for just such a drop off. You won't get much, but to me it makes me feel like I am reducing my carbon footprint just a smidge. The extra money is always helpful!

Hope you find this helpful!

Value of a Thomas Kinkade Fly Fishing Print

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

If you are looking for insurance value, talk to your insurance broker to make sure you are covered if it is damaged/stolen and to make sure you don't need a special rider for it.

If your broker is like mine, they will want to know how much you paid for it, if it has all the correct paperwork (like certificate of authenticity), and if it is framed or not...and if yes, professionally framed or a do it yourself job. This will develop a replacement value.

If you are looking for actual sold market value, I use Ebay completed/sold (you need to click BOTH options which on my screen are to the left of the listings) to look for comparables.

I never go by asking prices as people can ask for a million dollars :). By using the sold feature, you can get an idea of what people are actually paying for items in the open market.

There was a GP of this print recently sold for best offer with the selling prices starting at $620 and free shipping. Best offer means it was sold for less than the asking price (but you don't know exactly what amount. You also need to factor in that it probably cost $30-$50 to ship depending on size and location so the seller has to take that off the final amount + Ebay and Paypal fees (which are huge).

Hope this is helpful!!

Boyfriend's Birthday Present Ideas

I am all about experience gifts...plan an adventure with him to incorporate all of his favorite things. One year for my husband's birthday I planned an around "dahntahn" day (Pittsburghese for downtown...the city)...where we did all kinds of cool and inexpensive touristy things that we never get a chance to do. We had an amazing breakfast a one of Pittsburgh's famous diners, window shopped at the street vendors in the Strip District (a cool shopping area in the city), and had lunch at the local casino. Hubby's meal was free when he showed his driver's license that it was his birthday! It was an overall thrifty fun day! The gift of time is the best ever!!!

Value of English Staffordshire Serving Pieces

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

I love these pieces but sadly, they are not getting much at least when I have tried selling them...under $10 for the platters.

Rare pieces like teapots (in mint condition) may garner more. I checked eBay and the only sold one platter sold...it was started in the $12 range and the seller accepted best offer which could mean any amount BELOW that. Most are unsold.

That said, have you tried Replacements.com. I have had good luck selling other pieces there. They buy unusual pieces but they have to be in pristine condition.

If the pieces are at all damaged you may want to consider selling them for mosaics...meaning break them and list them online as shards. If you go to eBay and type in mosaic + china + tiles you can see that lots (large amounts) sell pretty well.

I plan do smash up a bunch of my broken pieces. I have some of my grandmother's china that got broken years ago that I can't bear to part with that I am going to smash and sell this summer. The trick is to make the pieces big enough to keep the patterns intact.

My sister in law took shards of my husband's family china and her friend made necklaces for all of the girls in the family...that is a cool way to deal with unsellable pieces if you (or a friend) are crafty.

Identifying a Porcelain Doll

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

From my research I have found similar dolls from the manufacturer Paradise Galleries. If you Google Images + Blonde + Doll + Paradise Galleries you may be able to find an exact match...There are lots and lots of them out there.

From my dealings some have monetary value, some just sentimental value. I like to dabble in selling cool things and found dolls do better at flea markets or tag sales than Ebay. This is because people are super fussy about condition and my idea of good and theirs are often different because I collect and sell what I like. True collectors are into grading and such.

The nice thing about the flea/tag sale route is you can put a high price on it and a note OBO (or best offer) and let the market and your negotiating skills get you a final price!!

Sweet Potato Smoothie

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

This site would be chaos without those (fairly) level headed editors who attempt to make readable rag from the submissions of inarticulate ramblings such as mine. I say 'fairly' lest 'level' becomes 'swell'.

This started out as a simple tip. I discovered a cheese slicer does a great job at peeling last year's sweet potatoes. I haven't tried it on fresh potatoes, yet.

Then, like a child off Ritalin, my mind wanders. I add impertinent thoughts to the tip, making sweet potato smoothies. Actually, I thought smoothies were an ice based drink. If so, my concoction wouldn't qualify as one.

Years ago, I got on a health kick and read all I could find on the 5-10 most healthful foods. Sweet potatoes was on every list.

I figured raw was better then cooked, so I started grating the potatoes and using them as you would carrots in a salad.
After a while, all that grating became rather monotonous.

I also figured the benefits would be more readily available if in a drink form. That's when I got the idea of a 'smoothie'. Let me tell you my experience.

All this came about because I was a bit over weight. I wanted to lose about 15 pounds, lose it safely and quickly with as little fuss as possible. If I could lose weight by drinking the healthiest foods available, that would be great.

So, I bought sweet potatoes, peeled them and cut them into small chunks ready for the blender. The rest is a matter of preference. What liquid is used depends on your taste. I usually used milk. Enough liquid is used to make the drink as thick or as thin as you want.

I usually add a cup of potato chunks to the blender along with my liquid. Then I liquefy. From here, you're own your own!

Banana works well as an addition. Blueberries are great and so healthful. Most any nut. Peeled and sliced apples. It's all about mixing and matching and experimenting. The only green I found mild enough to use is spinach.

Here's what I found. This drink gave me energy. Not 'sorta', 'maybe' or 'I think so'. It did.

This drink is very filling. It seems to expand in your stomach. It doesn't. That's just the sensation.

It's better to drink as a beverage than to gulp down all at once.

Don't mix more drink than you will use in 24 hours. Some of your mixes might be quite tasty but they quickly lose that flavor. Keep chilled.

If you were to use this drink as a weight loss aid, I would suggest substituting one - two meals per day with 10-12 oz. of this drink. As always, consult a health care provider before making any major dietary changes.

Oh, the drink looks yucky, especially if you add spinach leaves.

Value of Homer Laughlin China

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

I always use Replacements.com to sell dishes. I sold over 30 of my nana's pieces a few years ago and made several hundred dollars.

If you go to their site and follow their directions, they will send you a bid sheet and let you know if they will buy them.

If they aren't buying...if you have a place like we do in Pittsburgh called Center for Creative Reuse, you may see if they want them for artists to break up and use in their mosaics.

My third suggestion is to do what I plan to do to a batch of pretty but otherwise unsellable dishes...I plan to break them myself and sell them on Ebay as a lot. If you go to Ebay and type in broken china mosaic tiles you can see they do sell pretty well! The key is breaking them so you preserve the pattern. The bonus to this method is smashing china when you are having a bad day is a great stress reliever :)

Good luck!!

Identifying a Porcelain Doll

Poor dolly! I hope you can find a place to repair her! From my reading I learned that most dolls with a diamond were from Japan. Years of make vary. The mark you show is listed as "unknown" on most of the doll sites I use for my info. If you have a local antique dealer you trust, he/she may be able to give you a local, reputable doll hospital in your area. As she is fragile mailing her away for repair could subject her to even more damage. Wishing you the best!

Using Damp Rid

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

If your issues are like ours were in our basement, you may be better off investing in a good dehumidifier. It ends up paying for itself in the long run. We started out with the Damp Rid product and it worked nicely, but the problem was too big for it. The other challenge for us is products like this are not good around dogs...so if you do have pets, be sure to keep them away from the container--esp. when it turns to liquid. I use the water from the dehumidifier for my plants so even through my electric costs went up slightly, my water bill dropped slightly. Just a suggestion for long term moisture/mold control.

Blue Food and Decorations for a Rainbow Tea

May 23, 20180 found this helpful

Blue is my favorite color! For blue foods...if you don't go the natural route, like blueberries or blue corn tortilla chips you end up with lots of artificial colors/dyes which can make a lot of people sick. I only know that because we have people in my family with serious food allergies...which include most food coloring. While I haven't yet had the opportunity to try it yet, when Googling around, I found a blog with a natural food dye recipe. It seems super easy and the cupcake icing looks really cute!

Keeping Bugs Away When Sitting Outdoors

May 22, 20180 found this helpful

A while back while living in Bibee, Arizona, I initially did not know gnats or as they are frequently known as noseeums here. One day out, I kept noticing these tiny critters just flying all over my face, neck, ears and nose. As I got home, I itched almost as much as we itch from poison ivy, scratched and scratched until I was sore. Later on, all these little bites turned into fluid-filled craters, continued itching and my scratching opened up all these bumps. I felt and looked horrible and have been vigilant ever since.
Skin so soft really repels them and mosquitoes. It is a pleasant, mild oil which smoothes your skin and really helps with the tiniest of all pests.

Getting a Mockingbird to Go Away

May 22, 20180 found this helpful

I'm nearly at the point of pulling out a shotgun - temporary insanity will be easy to prove. But before that, I'm going to make a recording the the bird itself and then play that recording during the day. Apparently the mockingbird will try to out chirp its own recording and eventually become too exhausted to sing st sing. It's a bit like keeping a kid up late so they sleep. ( yes, I'm sure there will be lots of very furious haters if this answer :-) )

Juice Containers to Fill Empty Freezer Space

You are right about not filling the bottle to the top. Ice does expand. Thank you for adding that comment. I also have some Gatorade bottles of ice in the freezer and as you said, these smaller frozen containers do come in handy.

Getting Rid of Mite Sized Biting Bugs Inside

May 22, 20180 found this helpful

You should take this type of infestation seriously and call an exterminator and ask for a free estimate of service to get rid of your resident bugs and maybe ask at the same time where they think the bugs originated so you will know not to bring them in again in the future.

Try to get help as soon as possible because these bugs seem to be multiplying daily.
