Dear Readers,

Here are a few random tips to make household chores easier.

You can microwave frozen vegetables in their boxes.  Simply remove the outer paper wrapper and with a knife, cut a few slashes through the cardboard on 3 sides.  Place box on plate and microwave for 4 to 5 minutes according to package directions.  Handle carefully; box will be very hot.

To make grocery shopping quick and easy, write the list of items according to the aisles in the grocery store.  The first time it may be necessary to write down the contents of each aisle.  This may take a little time, but it will make your shopping trip very efficient.

Be sure to use Endust on your cloth when dusting furniture.  It makes the dust stick to the cloth.  Without Endust, you’re just pushing the dust around!

The other day I was shopping for Mr. Clean and now it comes in a choice of fragrances: “Meadows and Rain” and “Lavender-Vanilla with Comfort”.  I have no idea what “comfort” smells like but I guess it does make the task of washing the bathroom floor more palatable!!!

Keep smilin’!

Hello readers!
Who is Mimi and why does she want to write a blog?
Well, as a way of introduction let me tell you I’ve been married (happily!) for more than 38 years; have a married daughter and son and a 15 month old granddaughter who is the love of my life!
My daughter and daughter-in-law have been urging me to start a blog because they feel others might enjoy the advice I have given them.  I’ll give you some of my ideas.  They may be some recipes I like or some cleaning tips or just maybe some motherly observations.  Do what you want with them and let’s all have some fun.  Lord knows we all could use a little fun in our lives.
Here’s my first cleaning tip:  Your cleaning job is only as good as the rags you use!  Sounds pretty earth shaking doesn’t it?  But I have found through the years that it does pay to have good cleaning rags.  Paper towels can’t do everything.  And the best rags are old cotton tee shirts and old wash cloths and hand towels.  I use the tee shirts for waxing a car and the wash cloths and towels for cleaning bathroom counters and floors.  Just a bucket of Mr. Clean and hot water and these rags and I can clean anything.  Also the rags can be washed and reused and we can cut down on paper towels.
It just occurred to me that my first tip hasn’t put any fun into your life.  But think of this:  Cleanliness is next to Godliness!!!!!
