Oh, The Things I am Learning
After living in the desert for two years with no rain, it has rained almost continuously for the past week. When it's not raining, the mosquitos are fierce! After trying everything in the medicine cabinet for itching, I discovered that a paste of baking soda and water works the best! We also discovered last night that we may have fleas! The dogs are on Frontline but we may have brought them into the house with the bargain carpets. I read online that if you brush Borax into the carpet and vacuum it out several times it will kill the fleas. Will give it a try before I call Terminex! My final tip is that you can get rid of those fingerprints on Stainless Steel appliances with Liquid Gold. Rub it on and buff it off. Voila! No fingerprints. I was cleaning the cupboards with in and I read the can! I guess I'm learning how to live in the country.
