Same twist....

Here's a new twist on using products other than intended. I was cooking some quiona this morning and instead of paying attention, i.e. not playing on the computer, it burnt !! It was a mess. I remembered my son telling me about soaking such messes with fabric softener sheets. I had tried it before with much success and walla... It worked again !! After it soaked for a little while it washed right up.
Now it was on to the laundry. Here about a week  ago I learned that vinegar makes a good fabric softener. That too works, and no, your clothes don't come out smelling like vinegar !!
I have twice now made my own laundry soap. But I have found that the only way to grate the soap is TO HAND GRATE IT. I almost burned up my vita mix trying it an easier way. Talk about an expensive error !!  So glad that little voice told me to stop !!


  1. Hi Janie, thanks for visiting my blog. I have never heard of using fabric softener sheets to help clean burnt pans but what a great idea, thanks for sharing. I often seem to have a burnt pan soaking in my kitchen sink for some reason.
