So I just wrote a long post about budgeting for this week's Works for Me Wednesday, and THEN I thought to check to see if it was a themed week--and it is. So budgeting will have to wait--even though it was quite a timely post, I thought, what with the government struggling mightily and so badly in need of my pointers. Oh well.
(Whoops. I hope Shannon doesn't count that as a political comment. Don't tell, 'kay?)
The theme is Kitchen Organization, and while this isn't exactly about organization, it'll save you having to throw out those nearly-new dishcloths that you swore you'd wash every day; you'd never use one for four days straight or leave one lying in the bottom of the sink overnight. You know the ones.
But you goofed just once and now they STINK. And they make your hands stink. And nobody wants to touch them. Or help you in the kitchen. (As if....)
So here's what you do. Invest in a bottle of oh-so-cheap white vinegar, put your washcloth in a cereal bowl and douse it good with the vinegar. Let it sit overnight, wash, and--yippee skippee--nearly-new dishcloth! (Sorry, this method will not remove food or coffee stains.)
Works for your husband's smelly t-shirt armpits, too. (Come on, I know Papa Rooster isn't the only he-man out there--I get search engine hits every day on this post!)
