Need to iron just the collar or button placket on a blouse or shirt quickly and not have to drag out the ironing board, iron, and wait for the iron to heat up?

Remember the film peter pan who was a lawyer and forgot how to fly, and the fairy told him in order to fly u must think happy thoughts.. my secret is happy thoughts or the power of positive thinking..never did i think that there is impossible or that i can't.. my life was rough , i was never a pampered lady..but i read once that success is not the success of someone who found the road paved and he walked..but success is of those who fell and found the power to get up and walk all the way again.
Even with proper cleaning sometimes we end up with those pesky fruit flies. They are one of the easiest pest to bait & kill without buying chemicals. A quick & easy trap is to set out a bowl of vinegar with 2-3 drops of citrus smelling liquid dish soap. Attracts the flies & they drown. Freshen daily
