Yesterday I learned something life changing! If you have an oil or grease spot on some clothing place one paper napkin underneath the stain, and one paper napkin over the stain and then iron. The napkins absorb the oil and it’s gone! AMAZING!! Needless to say, I’m very thankful to my Paraguayan friend for showing me this trick. And it worked on old stain…a shirt that had gone through the dryer and everything. Can you tell how excited I am??

I also found Washing Soda (known as Carbonato de Sodio here) and my homemade laundry soap has gotten even better. Things are looking very good on the cleaning front.

I”m also happy to report that the Epicurious app for iPad has renewed my cooking spark. While browsing through it today I found a recipe for Iranian Potato Tadig and I think I have to add it our menu. I guess one could say that things are looking very good on the cooking front as well.

Any new tip or trick you’d like to share with me? Do tell!

(And Happy June to you!)

Now, if I could only find my Nike+ chip for my shoes……
