Things We All Dislike – That can be easily solved with these household tips!!

   You know what I dislike? Purchasing something with a price sticker that wont’ seem to pry off of the surface – that’s what I dislike. I recently read an article with the Atlanta Home Inspector, which explained how to remove that pesky price label . Here is  what it said:

The same pre-treater that erases spots and stains from fabric will also dissolve the black, tacky adhesive and bits of paper that often get left behind when you try to peel off a price sticker. Saturate the sticker with the spray, working it in with your fingers. Wait about 30 seconds, and the gooey residue should be soft enough to scrape off. The last step includes washing the itme in hot sudsy water.

Sounds simple enough!              

 Want to know something else that I dislike?  BBQ stains. Love to eat BBQ with the Atlanta Home Inspection team, but the stains that it leaves behind can be ridiculous. So when I found this handy tip on msn living, I was excited and eager to share it with y’all :

 Place a layer of paper towels over the stain. Working from the inside of the fabric, flush with cold water to transfer some of the barbecue sauce to the towel. Later, pretreat with liquid laundry detergent to break up the stain. Let sit for several minutes, then rinse well. Sponge the stain with white vinegar and rinse again. Pretreat again and wash. Also works for ketchup spills! 

       While I am venting about simple little irritating things that happen to us all, I suppose I will add one more item to this blog.  This one is regarding leather shoes. You know how they become dull, losing their shine?Well did you know that if you first use a damp cloth to remove visible dirt, then apply a drop of vegetable oil to the surface, those lackluster kicks will be spiffy in no time!  It is so interesting to consider different uses for everyday items. Hopefully these tips will come in handy to you.
