^Cough. Sorry. It tickled my funny bone.
For a long while, I have been searching for a natural replacement for dryer sheets. I've tried any number of things - wool balls (they don't work), tennis balls (nope), etc. The answer, of course, is simple: an old cloth/washcloth with vinegar on it. The sheets that usually come out cracking and popping and being stupidly staticky and covered in hair/lint came out of the dryer like a dream. I put a little orange essential oil on the cloth as well to reduce the vinegar smell. We have a winner!
Let's see, what else have I learned lately that should have come to me ages ago?
-Apparently those little watermelons can't be left in the fridge for a week without getting tough and unpleasant.
-Stretching after doing heavy yardwork is vital for your back, neck, shoulders and arms. Especially if you're a fluffball like I am.
-Stirring natural peanut butter with a chopstick is really the best way to get it done - I tried spoon, butter knife, spatula and fork before I figured that out. A chopstick doesn't displace as much of the oil, reducing the chance of annoying overflow. Plus, it gets down into the nooks and crannies of the jar.
-When the forecast calls for warm and sunny weather on a weekend renowned for being overcast and cool, one should be highly skeptical and not actually expect it to be warm and sunny. Pah!
