Cleaning Tips

Grease Removal from Kitchen Cabinets
When cleaning kitchen cabinets of touch cooking grease,, there are a few

commercial products that are very effective Be sure to read the back
to find the kitchen cleaning product that best suits your needs. You can
try using baking soda for a more environmentally friendly alternative or
mild detergent, such as that you would use to wash your dishes, to cut
through grease. You can also try cleaning kitchen cabinet doors by
combining a half cup borax, two tablespoons laudry detergent soap
one tablespoon ammonia, and one gallon of warm water. Use full strength
in spray bottle or add two cups to a pail of warm water. If any
remains, try using baking soda as a scrub agent. Apply it directly to
area - it should remove any residue without harming the finish.

If you have kitchen or household tips that you would like to share with

News from Possum Waller

I was doing fine rounding up all the chickens that tried to escape
the big move. Buffy happened to see me and decided that she would
There is no way that this woman could help anything! She took off after
one of the hens squaking as loud as the hen was, Big Red, the head
saw her and got defensive over his girlfried. Buffy caught up to the hen

and dropped to her knees and tried to scoop her up, well Big Red,
his property, ran right up her back and started pecking her head
Well of course Buffy stated screaming and running around the yard with
a chicken attached to her neck pecking away at what was her neat hairdo.
She finally made it to her Behomoth and Big Red jumped off, she burnt
rubber all the way up the driveway and down the road. Big Red just
around the yard crowing like a very satisfied rooster, I just decided to
a break I was laughing so hard.
