So if you have young kids you get my title, if not, go to yogabbagabba.com, fun fun stuff. Ok, on to the cool tricks. My dishwasher has been playing some not-so-cool tricks lately. No matter what kind of soap I used or what setting I chose my dishes kept coming out with a soapy film all over them. Well, lucky for me I go to church with a man who owns an appliance repair business. So I told him all my problems and kept my fingers crossed that he wasn't going to tell me to head to Lowe's. You will never belive what he told me to do. You ready?? Apple cider vinegar, yep, a whole gallon of it. Run that stinky stuff through on an empty cycle and it will clean all of the soap build up out of your pipes and hoses. Cost me about $3 and now I have sparkly dishes again, yippee!! Pretty cool trick don't ya think!!
As you can see in the picture I didn't use all of the vineger. I have heard of people washing their hair with apple cider vinegar to remove styling product build up and it is supposed to leave your hair so clean and soft. Has anyone tried this, I am just wondering how long will I smell like a pickled apple???

I was driving through town the other day and just so happened onto a street that it was "that time of the month", monthly garbage pick-up time that is. I noticed one house in particular that had quite a large pile at the curb. As I passed, I slowed down and low and behold they were throwing out some grapevine wreaths. I turned my car around and snatched em right up.

A Very Blessed Nest is having a "Free Friday" McLinky Party, I thought it deserved its very own post. We are in the process of changing out flat wood doors to panel doors through out our house and being the frugal, don't want to get rid of anything kinda person that I am (thanks Dad) we have some of those flat doors in the garage. So in need of something kinda large on my kitchen wall, I thought what better than a chalkboard? So I pulled a door from the garage and painted it with some chalkboard paint. J put some baseboard trim around it and ta-da, a FREE chalkboard! Do you have something free and fabulous? Come join the party at AVery Blessed Nest!
