Removing a Root System

December 12, 20170 found this helpful

It depends on how much you like the plant. If you like it and disturb the roots, you can kill it. Some plants with roots that interfere with the sidewalk, sewer or plumbing must be removed

Read More
December 12, 20170 found this helpful

It would be helpful for us to know what the roots are from? Some trees, such as willows have a rather extensive root system. If you go removing it, you may end up killing your trees. You may need to plant your pants further away from the trees.

Freeze the shirt for several hours. Then remove from the freezer and see if it will "pop" off when you bend or work with the fabric. This often works for removing gum. I discovered this once when an article of clothing was left in the car over night and had gum on it. It chipped right off.

How Can You Tell if Cotton Poly Fabric Will Fade

December 12, 20170 found this helpful

Cheaper fabrics can fade. I would dip in cold water to see if any dye comes out. I would wash that separately. Always wash in cold water to prevent fading.

Read More
December 12, 20170 found this helpful

Any fabric can fade. But, natural fabrics are more likely too, so anything with cotton or wool, linen...can. However, you can help offset that by prewashing your fabric (wash before sewing your project) in cold water with either some salt or vinegar. That will help to set the color.

Seasoning Cast Iron Pans

December 12, 20170 found this helpful

I second that!

I too have found this is the absolute easiest and fastest and best way to season cast iron so the cooking surface is like an ice rink, it's totally non stick after doing exactly as you've said.

Some say "put the greased cast iron pan into the oven" for an hour or so, then leave it until it cools, which is another hour. Naaah, the oven method takes too long, and no need to heat the oven up either.

Your method here, is imho, the only way to go, and it's fast!

Garlic Cauliflower

Sorry but this recipe missed it's mark by including one bulb of garlic....it was so overpowering that it made us sick.

Unless I am interpreting the bulb to mean the entire bulb and not just a clove of garlic (but the photo seems to look like an entire bulb) it was just way too strong! And we really like garlic!
