Happy Valentines to everyone, this is my one of my sisters birthday. Easy to remember and her name is Valie. It's also Karen31's birthday, happy birthday Karen31.
Welcome back Karen3!
Glyne...Too cute, and you're a big push-over.
He loves brownies and is always calling up to ask if I want to bake brownies with him.
I purchased a book called '100 Helpful Household Hints' using white vinegar. Very interesting and I'll share some of the hints each day.
Today it's about cleaning out coffee/Tea makers.
  • Buildup in a coffeemaker's brewing system can affect coffee flavor. Get rid of buildup by running 1 brewing cycle of cold water and 1/4 cup white vinegar. Follow with a cycle of clean water. If you can still smell vinegar, run another cycle using fresh water only.
  • Boil water and 1/2 cup vinegar in a teakkettle for 10-15 minutes to help remove any mineral deposits inside the pot and spout. Rinse thoroughly.
  • Clean a teapot by boiling a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water for several minutes; let stand for 1 hour. Rinse with water.
