Handy Hints

Give your pillows the royal treatment!

My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!

There are some nasty little rust stains on them from letting the dry in the dishwasher. I was looking at Buzzfeed, and came across an amazingly simple and inexpensive way to remove them, with little effort on your part! See tutorial ----> http://www.discountqueens.com/diy-rust-stain-removal/
