Here are a few more household hints and handy tips.
Well, one, anyway.
If the door of your woodstove has glass in it, the easiest way to clean the inside of the glass is when you empty the ashes from the stove. Simply dip a dampened paper towel into the ash and scrub the glass with it. Use another clean, damp paper towel to wipe away the residue, then let it air-dry. For the outside of the glass, you can use a commercial glass cleaner, or vinegar and water.
Now, isn’t that something you can’t believe you lived this long without knowing?!
(The Bag Lady was going to put a photo of her woodstove here for illustration purposes, but that would mean she would have to clean it first...)
The Bag Lady is full of little tips like this, but doesn’t want to share them all at once and cause a major overload. (In other words, she can’t think of any more right now.)
Oh, wait. Here’s another one. The easiest way to clean the barn? Get someone else to do it!
What’s your favourite cleaning tip?
