Washing Tip:

Tip of the Week - Oven Tip

Posted in 'Cleaning' on April 15, 2009

I was just chatting to a friend on the phone who was baking a cake. Unfortunately for her, the cake overflowed and baked onto the bottom of her oven. Has that ever happened to you? Can I introduce you now to my friend alfoil???

Line the bottom of your oven with alfoil and if there is ever a spill in your oven, you just need to change the alfoil instead of pulling out the rubber gloves and oven cleaner. I also line my grill tray with it so I don’t have to scrub it each time I make cheese on toast.

Do you have any handy tips you'd like to share?

Tip of the Week - Updating Details

Posted in 'Tips' on April 21, 2009

Before throwing out old birthday and Christmas cards, check the address on the back of the envelope and compare it against your address book to keep it up to date. Then, instead of throwing them out, why not put them in the craft box for the kids. They will get hours of fun out of them. If you don't have kids or they have outgrown doing craft, why not donate them to your local kindy or daycare?

Speaking of birthday and Christmas cards, are you always late in sending your cards, or just never get around to it at all? What if all you had to do was supply the names, addresses and birthday’s of all your friends and relatives and cards would magically get sent for you? Why not contact us today to find out how we can wave our magic wand and make it happen!

Tip of the Week - No More Doona Problems!

Posted in 'Tips' on April 28, 2009

As the weather starts to turn cold, and the doonas come out of the cupboard, my first tip for this week is to wash your doona or get it dry cleaned to get rid of the musty smell from being in the cupboard for so long.

My second tip was suggested by my friend Deb.

Doona Tip:

Sew bits of velcro on each corner of your doona and then the inside corners of the doona cover. The doona will now stay in place and you won’t find yourself battling to stay warm in the middle of the night.
