Last Friday, Gillian commented that she loves the scent of citrus in her home. I wonder if she’s tried making her own pot scrubber with half a lemon and a little baking soda?
Yes, it’s as easy as it sounds. Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle baking soda on the cut side.
This handy little scrubber is also a great way to clean counters and other surfaces because the baking soda is a mild abrasive, and the lemon cuts through grease and soap scum.
Last weekend I sorted and cleaned all my spice jars and packages—a job that was long overdue. I ended up throwing out a lot of stuff that was as old as the hills, and I had to scratch my head over having two full jars of fennel seeds. I can’t imagine what I’ll do with one. Plus I’m not sure why I had them in the first place. Any suggestions for recipes that call for fennel seeds?
Since I was on a roll, I decided to organize the “tupperware” drawer, too. Do you have one of those? I’m not sure why I call it that since I have no tupperware. Anyway, all the storage containers and lids are now married and sitting in neat piles in the drawer. I have no idea how long that will last, but for now it looks good. I also found seven bottoms with no tops, and ten tops with no bottoms. So many divorces in one small tupperware drawer.
Until next time,
