Household Tips & Tricks

Tip 1: Mix one part vinegar to 3 parts water to clean sinks, tubs and counters. (DO NOT use on natural surfaces like stone or wood)

Tip 2: Start your holiday shopping in the middle of the summer. Saves time and money....not to mention stress!

Tip 3: Put a mini marshmallow in the bottom of ice cream cones to prevent drips.

Tip 4: So you opened a bottle of wine and you have some left over? (What's wrong with you?! Haha!!) Pour the extra wine into ice cube trays - freeze over night - take wine cubes and put into freezer bags. Now you have wine for dishes or marinades.

Tip 5: Dried herbs loose their flavor very fast. Only keep them for around 6 months. Only buy the smallest amount unless you use a lot of dried herbs. When using fresh herbs, use about 3 times the amount of the dried.
