I just have to tell you how you seem to have the answers to all my questions! (Except a tutorial on how to keep my boss from driving me batty… :/ ) My husband and I recently purchased our 1st home and any question I have, like how in the world do I keep this hardwood clean or man how do I get that out of the carpet?!, I just search your blog and boom there is the answer!! I seriously thought of changing our homepage to your site but I don’t think my husband would care for that very much. :)
I always have some idea tumbling around in my head of little projects and homemade gifts and you’ve inspired me to follow through with them (Thinking about buying a sewing machine…)
Sooo…keep doing what your doing, I love it! Watching everyday for something else fantastic
Love, Hannah from Hannibal
Thanks so much Hannah! Glad you like the website and have been getting some useful stuff for use in your first home. (How exciting!) :-) Thanks for taking time to leave a comment. I’ll see what I can do about a “boss driving you batty” tutorial. ;-)
Hi, I love all you’re ideas! I can’t wait to try them. Tell me if you know what to do about this; my neighbor’s prior homeowner must have been a smoker in the bathroom. She showed me her bathroom walls. No matter what she’s done, cleaning the walls-primed them-painted them, it seems like tar/nicotine keeps seeping thru the wall. It looks like someone sprayed brown sticky goo on the wall. It is yucky and looks bad! Do you have any magical ideas for permantly removing this? I know she would love any ideas. Thanks!
Would she be willing to replace the wall?
dont know if this would work or not, or how you would apply it, but rubbing alcohol is great at removing tar and resins.
I’ve read and read your blog postings! I bought some ingredients to make the cleaning products. I’m loving your ideas, and your “up-beat” attitude…but most of all I appreciate your candid story of additcion. As a mom of an addicted son, you give me hope for him. I shall be following your blog. Thank you, sincerely!
Thank YOU Sally! I will be praying for you and your son! Never give up hope! :-)
Hi Jillee – Whats the best cleaner for laminate floors? Also I have no wax floors in my bathroom and I think I used the wrong product on them because they no longer shine and they streak with everything I try :( any suggestions? I love your website – thank you for posting all of these great ideas
I just found your website through Pininterest and am thrilled to find it. I’m a Senior citizen but “young” enough to love finding hints to make life easier. My problem is cleaning the burners on my gas stove. I clean the grills with ammonia in a garbage bag overnight which works great but a little afraid of what I can use around gas burners other than good old “elbow grease”. Would you have any solutions for me? Thank you ever so much.
Have u ever tried making cream for people for aging wrinkles or a regular day cream?
if so PLEASE give me your recipes. I want so bad to make them. I want to make wrinkle cream (or call them crinkles as Julie Roberts says) for someone for Christmas.
I also want to give you a beeswax recipe I love!
here’s the website I got it from. http://www.asonamagarden.wordpress It’s called easy beeswax lotion, or something like that..this also works as lip balm and works great for people ecezma
one cup beeswax (the bead kind melts faster)
half cup your choice of oil
quarter cup coconut oil
extract (yes, the kind in the baking department. You can use it for this and it works. Personally, I love the nice soft scent of orange. This is optional. You can use essential oils if you want, but extract is cheaper and works just as well)
Fill pot with one/fourth cup water.Put a mason jar inside the pot (this will be your broiler) and put coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax in jar. Stir every so often. Once everything melts, remove jar and put lid on and leave out until at room temperature, or for faster cooling put in fridge. Once cool add as much scent as desired. If it’s too greasy for you, cut down on coconut oil.
If you want to make your own fragance oil put 1/4 cupherbs or flowers petals in bag along with 1 cup oil. Take a rolling pin and roll around for about thirty seconds. Use cheesecloth or coffee filters to put in jar. I warn you….in my expeirience using coffee it may take a long while!
Now, you have it!
Enjoy, Jillee. Hope it turns out well!
In my previous comment, I said ‘and works great for people ecezama’. Well, I meant it’s great for people with ecezma. :) God bless!
Any ideas on how to clean the burners on an electric stove? I clean the drip pans regularly and I’ve tried just wiping them down with a rag and water but they are still gross and sticky. We are renting so I can’t/don’t want to just replace them (landlord is lazy and won’t do anything about it). There’s even paint of one of them from before we moved in that they thought was okay to leave! Of course we don’t use that one, I can’t imagine paint fumes are safe :(
WE have a hard time cleaning our burners too! YOu could try buying a red scrubbing pad.
Yes, I’ve always found that a red scrubbing pad works. SOS works good too!
Love your site!!!!
I need your help, and maybe your viewers help.
could you do an article on coffee pots!!!!
After the demise of my much loved coffee pot , and have not been able to find one that I’m happy with new ones are UGLY, yes the look almost as important as taste.
I found that the funnel shaped cones that hold coffee make better coffee than the flat bottom, can,t find any.
I’m using a Keurig, but it’s expensive and not as good, plus I miss the aroma and ritual of brewing a pot of coffee. Would love your input.
My son got white out, on my bathroom floor, which is linoleum . I have tried vinegar, oxy, soap and water, nothing is working. I’m going to try ammonia but I’m running out of natural ideas. do you have any solutions?
Thank you Connie
Love your website, Jillee! It’s like THE best!
Absolutely love your site! Brilliant ideas and tips! However, I am looking for a way to clean the smell of spoiled milk out of my vehicle :( A gallon of milk cracked upon in my car when my husband was driving it and he just soaked it up thinking it would be fine…well that was 7 weeks ago and we had a bit of a warm spell here this last week and now the smell in my car is unbearable! Help! Someone told me to clean it with apple cider vinegar? Afraid that’s too acidic? Any Ideas? It is so awful!
