Not Just For Dishes

 Dawn takes away grease!

Even on clothing!

Put a few drops of Dawn on that favorite shirt with the oily spot.

Work it in, and throw it in the wash as usual.

No more oily spot!


Tip For Laundry: Under Arm Stains/Odors

Make a paste of peroxide and baking soda and work it in with an old toothbrush.

Then throw into the wash as usual.

Warning: you may want to test fabric for color fastness in an inconspicuous area first.



What do you do on Memorial Day? Have a picnic? Go swimming? Shop the sales?  Originally called "Decoration Day",  Memorial Day was a day set apart to remember the soldiers who died in the Civil War. Loved ones would decorate the graves of their departed soldiers with flowers and flags. New York was the first state to observe Decoration Day. Many southern states refused to celebrate the national day but began Confederate memorial days to remember their dead. After World War I, Decoration Day became known as Memorial Day and was modified to include all departed military. In the year 2,000 the United States congress passed a resolution to reinstate Memorial Day asking all Americans to stop whatever they are doing at 3 pm on each Memorial Day and for one minute remember those who gave their lives for their country. The resolution included that Taps be played where possible. The following is a youtube video about the origin of the beautiful, but haunting melody. Enjoy!
