The postmaster and the rural route carrier would be most appreciative if everyone on the rural route would clean out the snow from in front of their mailbox in front of their house. There is a lot of snow out there (as we all know) and this would make the rural carrier's job so much easier. They all thank you so much for your help.

Following are some great tips you might be interested in.
1. Blood stains on clothes? Just pour a little hydrogen peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood.
2. Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal for inside windows. Straight vinegar will get outside windows really clean. Don't wash windows on a sunny day. They will dry too quickly and will probably streak.
3. Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely light scent in each room when the light is turned on.
4. Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will smell freshly washed for weeks to come. You can also do this with towels and linen.
5. Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least three hours prior to burning.
6. To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag and add the flowers. Shake vigoroursly as the salt will absorb all the dust and dirt and leave you artificial flowers looking like new.
7. To easily remove burnt on food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan and bring to a boil on stove top.
8. Spray your Tupperware with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato-based sauces and there won't be any stains.
