Clothesline Tip

Posted in 'Tips' on March 8, 2011

The past week has been quite windy up here in Brisbane. Although clothes have been drying really quickly, if they aren't pegged on safely, your neighbours could end up with them.

If you have clothes on hangers on your clothesline, use 2 hangers instead of one, with the hooks facing each other. No chance of them blowing off now.

Chores Tip

Posted in 'Cleaning' on March 15, 2011

If your children are old enough to help out with some of the cleaning but are a bit hit and miss with what they do (even though they've said they completed the job), hide some money in places that you know aren't being cleaned and then drop a few hints. Sort of like hide and seek for pocket money, but your house gets cleaned in the process.

Boiled Egg Tip

Posted in 'Tips' on March 29, 2011
Have you ever opened the top off your boiled egg to discover that it's not quite cooked enough yet? There is nothing worse than boiling eggs for a soldiers and finding the white isn't even set yet (and not a chance in the world the kids will eat it!)

Put the top back on and stick it in the microwave on high for a few seconds to cook it a bit more. Phew, safe from another tantrum!
