FReeper Canteen ~ Hints & Tips Thursday ~ 2 August 2007
August 1, 2007 | Entertaining the Troops Committee

Posted on 08/01/2007 6:00:30 PM PDT by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.

HINT & TIPS

Welcome to another installment of the FReeper Canteen Hints & Tips. Hopefully, you’ll find something here that you’ve never heard before. If you have tried one of these hints, please share your thoughts on it.

Tonight, we’ll do some general household hints.

*** Metal cookie cutters double up nicely as unique napkin holders for special dinners. If you want, spray paint them to match the decor.

*** Remove adhesive from stickers on glass by rubbing vegetable oil with a soft cloth or paper towel, then wash.

*** Pan size is measured from the top, not the bottom.

*** Put used steel wool scrubbing pads in a plastic bag and store in the freezer to help prevent rust.

*** Trouble putting the lid on a plastic container? Run the lid under hot water for 20-30 seconds and it will close easily.

*** Glass tabletops will sparkle if you rub gently with lemon juice or with vinegar, then dry with paper towels and polished with newspapers.

(All hints found on websites. Management makes no claims to the effectiveness of any hints)

Join us again next week for more hints.

The PCs in the bedroom and Mrs. Smith needs her rest. Long day.
