There are lots of things we need and want to get to this month. If meeting with friends is on your list, be sure to schedule that time early. You can schedule a quick hour to meet for coffee or lunch. Or... multitask. You can make your visit more productive and fun by baking cookies, gift wrapping together or volunteering to ring a bell for a charity.
Easy Breakfast Smoothies
Split bags of fresh or frozen fruits into individual size bags for smoothies and freeze. Each morning grab a bag, toss into your blender with milk, juice and yogurt and you are on your way. A nutritious breakfast in just a few minutes!
The team at The DeClutter Coach wishes you and your families and friends a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! We are very thankful for all of you; our clients, sponsors and friends. Also, Happy first day of Hanukkah!
If you have a small amount of unused wine, use it to make ice cubes. Add the ice cubes to water, club soda or other drinks in the future.
Rubbing Alcohol to the Rescue!
Is a permanent marker stain on your countertop, wall or even skin? Saturate a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and scrub. The stain should disappear quickly. If you have a specialty countertop, please check with manufacturer guidelines first.
The next time a necklace or even shoelaces become knotted, try sprinkling some corn starch on the knotted area to loosen the knot.
Safer BBQ Grill Cleaner
The next time your grill needs a good cleaning, try this method. Combine one cup of baking soda to a half cup of water and make a paste. Dip your scrub brush into the paste and scrub away. The charred remains of dinners past will be removed quickly without using strong chemicals
Dryer sheets can have multiple purposes beyond the obvious. Use a dryer sheet in a pinch as a lint brush or to remove static electricity from clothing or even your hair.
Lemons for Whitening
Did you know that a half a cup of lemon juice added to your white load of washing will help to make them even whiter? You can use the lemon juice along with your detergent.
Re-purpose those silica packets that come with new items you buy. You can keep them with important documents, collectibles like baseball cards or add them to tubs of items like holiday decorations and clothing you store in your basement or garage. These little items help absorb extra moisture all around your house.
