Thursday Threesome

From the Advertising Department:

::Laundry Stain Removal::

Onesome: Laundry-- Ah, the relaxing way to spend a day, -eh? ...or not. "Laundry, bane or boon?", the question of the week!

Well, face it, the hard part of laundry is after it comes out of the dryer (or the washer, if you use a clothesline; they're banned by the covenants here). That's when you need to fold it or perhaps even iron something, and put it all away. Tossing stuff in the washer, then pulling it out an hour later and putting it in the dryer—how hard is that? I don't buy things that need special washing.

Twosome: Stain-- Okay, we'll work on cleaning this Thursday: what's your best stain removal tip? (Mark, "buying a new shirt" does not count...)

We use Shout before laundering. We also bought one of those Tide pens. Not bad, but you need to use it Right Away.

Threesome: Removal-- So you're doing dishes (presuming you don't nuke everything on paper plates and use plastic utensils): what's the hardest food to remove from day to day stuff (cookware doesn't count <g>!).

I rinse any really bad dishes and utensils, so that's usually not a problem, even if this dishwasher isn't as good as the Bosch we had. Usually the gunk left after you bake the chicken. Or cheese.
