Cleaning stainless steel appliances

To clean stainless steel appliances like doors etc., use baby oil to get finger prints and marks off. It works like a charm. Use a small amount on a napkin and wipe the fingerprints away.

No ironing.

I am doing my bit for the environment and my pocket. When I bring in the washing I don't iron much, especially T-shirts. I put them on the bed and run my hands over them like a pressing motion and voila! No wrinkles in the fabric and I hang them right away. Same for sheets and teatowels. I fold as I get them off the line and just put them away.
Result is savings on electricity bills and my carbon footprint on the environment...

Years ago, a friend told me that by sprinkling cinnamon and adding a few drops of vanilla in your cup of coffee will add flavour and no calories and is better tasting too!
