cleaning up the mess

December 29, 2009

I am back from Chicago and focused on putting away holiday decorations.  I am sure I got this from Martha Stewart at some point, but wanted to share a helpful hint about cleaning up candles.  If your candle has melted into your candle holder, place the candle holder into the freezer for the night and by the next morning it should pop right out (with some gentle coaxing from a fork or knife). Any helpful ideas you want to share?

    This is one grandpa’s suggestion on cleaning the grates of your barbeque grill. Place several sheets of aluminum foil, single layer, on the grilling surface for 5-10 minutes with the grill on high and the top down. Afterwards, turn the grill off and remove the foil. You’ll find a white powder on the grill surface which is easily brushed off with your grill brush.
