Skiing getting sticky?

When you are leaving for your next cross-country ski adventure, and don’t have time to apply a proper coat of ski wax – take a can of WD40 or light cooking spray with you. You can simply spray a little oil on your skis right before hitting the tails for a great non stick adventure! Just a light coat will do it.

Donate or Trash?

Next time you are thinking of donating clothes, furniture, pots and pans or whatever to you local Thrift store, consider the condition of the items you are bagging up to donate. Are they really just “gently used” and truely “reusable” or are they trash? 

It can cost your local thrift store hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to throw away all those -donations- that are really trash. Sort your things first and throw away what really isn’t reusable before you donate so that the thrift stores can use their funds to help their particular community rather than paying the trash bill! Thanks.

Freshen up –

Freshen up your closets – take an empty jar, punch holes in the top, put some baking soda in the jar (about 1/2 full), screw on the top and place on the floor in your closet. It will help remove those musty smells and keep everything in your closet fresher smelling.
