I think you should leave it on. Its kinda cute. Also when they are older they may get grosses out by it and remove it themselves..lol or you could try a Mr Clean pad, they work on just about anything.

Hi everyone, hope all had a nice Christmas.Anyone have something we can add to the topic ? This is an old hint but my son, who is 9 thinks he discovered a new thing to do with christmas wrap. He cut out the shapes and designs on the paper and glued it on cardboard and made a Christmas picture to hang on our wall for next year, so cute..How about some storage hints for our Christmas stuff and easy packing tips...Im always untangeling lights and things get broken so any hints would be appreciated..

well its been awhile since Ive posted so I thought I would just check in and see if anyone has something new to add. I did find a new way to spruce up stainless steel. I used a real light grade of steel wool on a stove top that was totally trashed, I put a little oil on the steel wool and used circular motions, It took the burned grease stains around the drip pans off and shined things up really well. Now I would suggest that you get the finest grade available and use it in a area that wont show so much and I would only use this method on stove tops that are older and getting it clean instead of replacing it is the only option you have.I did you oven cleaner with the steel wool around the burned areas. let the oven cleaner do its job first then try the steel wool instead of an s o s pad. Hope folks start to leave some more tips as I truly enjoyed hearing from everyone.

I have had some car repair questions, does anyone have any tips on changing my own oil, and changing my spark plugs? When it comes to cars, I am so in the dark.

Hello Bookeeping.Its great to see someone on here asking for some help. I myself dont know a thing about it but it must not be that hard since so many people do it.I do know that it is a dirty job. You also have to dispose of the used oil properly and the filter as well. So many people just leave the used oil in a milk jug by the side of the road and that is so disrespectful to our land and future generation of kids. For our Family my Husband just takes it to a place that charges around $25.00. Some places may charge a bit more for oil disposal but not much. Ask around and look for oil change specials and be sure not to fall for all the other things they try to sell you when you go, especially if you are a women because they try to take advantage of us sometimes....Good Luck

oh! and i have another question lol, does anyone know how to get dryed wax off of a tshirt? i tryed to just pick it off, but was afraid i would ruin the shirt.

in return, i can offer a help tip, it doesnt really have to do with household stuff, but if you want a deep conditing treatment for your hair, and dont want to spend the money at a salon, you can shampoo your hair like normal, ring out as much water as you can, then add your everyday condtioner, make sure you have a good amount, work it in hair then put on a shower cap and leave it on for a hour before you rinse. makes your hair super soft! if you have really really dry hair, you can put olive oil in your hair and let it set for a hour with a shower cap then shampoo and rinse good, and you wont have dry hair again for awhile! iv done both and loved them. the olive oil can be messy, buts its worth it! leaves hair super soft and shiny!
thanks ladys! i really like this forum!

Im so sorry, I didnt see your post about the wax on the shirt. But I got wax on my carpet once and someone told me to put wax paper with the waxy side down and use a warm iron on it and it worked. Since your shirt is probly cotton or something other than my short shaggy carpet you may have to experiment with the heat..let me know how it turns out. Im glad you enjoy the thread but we need more folks to join in. It seems people are not responding as much as they use to.

I have come across a great use for Bounce dryer sheets. I believe the generic ones work for this also. Ladies(and some gents) know how tough it is to clean a casserole dish with all the dried, crusty edges. Fill your casserole dish with water past the crust edge, place a dryer sheet in and let soak for at least an hour. Your pan will wipe clean and you will no longer spend time scrubbing your casserole pans. Hope this helps, I use this all the time and it has never failed me
u canalso use denture cleaner to clean skilles and pans that have set and dried up caked on food just fill with hot water n drop in the denture tabllets let set for an hour then wash n if u drop candle wax on carpet take a brown paper bag lay it on wax n take an iron n iron it until gone. to get dust off candles without scraching the candle use panty hose
