Similar to dryer sheets but on a larger multi-purpose scale. When traveling, especially on extended stays, clean and dirty clothes start to migrate and interact. I would like to have a deodorizing sheet or bag that can separate these and keep the whole suitcase smelling fresh. I have used a few dryer sheets in the past which helps. When opening the suitcase there is a freshening aroma but that ceases quickly and doesn't separate the clothes.
i have been storing extra kitchen trash can liners in the bottom of my can for years. then i came up with a brilliant idea (at least in my mind) to improve the extra bag storage. i purchased two identical plastic kitchen cans. i cut the bottom off of one, made a rectangular opening in the top (formerly the bottom) large enough for the bags to pull through. now when it is time to change the liner, you just have to remove the old bag, and pull up the new one. works like facial tissue boxes. i have not shared this info with another living soul. had considered patenting, but feel good/great about sharing this with you
i live in the southeast, near the coast. we used to be over run with palmetto bugs (giant flying cockroach's), fire ants and rattlesnakes. i tried the mothball trick...it is a waste of money. however, i placed kingsford brand charcoal all around the outside perimeter of my house, and along the fence enclosing my backyard. this did not help with the fire ants, however, for some reason, the briquettes have kept my home bug and snake free. i have been using my idea for almost three years...still working. and i only replace with new kingsford annually.
in a 4 cup measuring cup put 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup pine sol ( i chose pine sol because i love that smell) in your microwave let mixture come to a boil and maintain that boil for 10 minutes. paper towels will wipe away any mess in your microwave. using the same (pyrex, as plastic will melt in the oven) add 1/2 cup more water and 1/4 cup pine sol. preheat oven to 300 degrees. boil mixture in microwave for 3 minutes, and place in preheated oven. after 1 hour turn oven off and allow to cool enough to touch. again with paper towels wipe the oven. even the toughest baked on stains will be gone. i love you clorox!
to make a pellet that dissolves from a plastic container but will not come thru it, put it in the tank about 6 inches from top so every time it is flushed it will be in the tank and clean the rim of the toilet. putting them in the bowl and they fall in it and clogs the toilet plumber for 42 years and have cleaned out many of them
