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.

Works great on windows, too. (or did someone else already point this out?) LOL!

There you are.

I’m just on my way to bed. Don’t have time for popcorn.

I think Tanniker needs competition for the 50s.

Thanks. I think I made it in Windows Paint. Just played with the fonts, the color and size, and saved the image.

I was sorta shamed into making one by Luv or beach or someone when I woohoo'ed without a picture and everyone else had a picture....

So I made a picture.

Nope, no one did.

But, it’s good to have positive feedback on hints.

Well, I don’t know. It really looks like something you might want to hold on to....just in case.

I’ll stop on the way and pick up a couple more - we can have a comparative (I hesitate to use the word “blind”) tasting.
