Recently, my local newspaper published a list of questions posed by the ever-popular Dr. Ramey Ph.D. of Dayton Children’s Medical Center.

Needless to say, I got a good chuckle from them.

So I’ve listed them here for you. With my answers.

Keepin’ it clean Thursdays- Bathroom edition: Cleaners!

Something that I never thought of, when cleaning was keeping it simple.

And simple means- use only ONE cleaner.

Most all-purpose bathroom cleaners do the same thing as those “one use” products do.

So throw out all the extra, and keep one multi-purpose cleaner under the sink (along with a roll of paper towels) in each bathroom for a quick cleanup.

If you have kids that are old enough- let them do the weekly wipe down!


Keepin’ it clean Tuesdays- Kitchen edition: Coffee stains anyone?

Okay, so if you’re in my house, you’d notice that we drink a lot of tea, and whole lot of coffee.

One thing that used to plague us were those nasty coffee/tea stains on our white ceramic mugs.

How do you get rid of it?


Just gently rub your mugs (hey now, your coffee and tea mugs- pfft!) with a wet cloth dipped in dry baking soda- or you can dip it in a salt and water paste.

Both work just as well as the other!
