Kitchen and Household Tips for this week:

Plastic Container Stain Removal
If you stored a tomato based product, such as pasta, in a plastic
chances are your Tupperware is stained. If you heated the pasta in the
microwave using the same container, chances are your plasticware is
permanantly. Washing the dishes will help, but your containers may be
stained beyond repair. To avoid this, spray your bowls or containers
with a
no stick cooking spray before each use to keep your plastic containers
getting stained from red sauces.In addition, one should never place a
based product in the microwave if one is using a plastic container.
the plastic is so pourous, the tomato gets embedded in the pores. If a
is already stained, you have to get a little creative when washing the
Your first option is to fill the bowl with hot water and drop in a
couple of
denture tablets. Leave for a couple of hours and when you come back the
stains will hopefully be removed. You can also try soaking the container
one part bleach to two parts of water. Make sure you give the bowls a
thorough rinse, maybe even a run through in the microwave, before using

News from Possum Waller

Well it snowed recently, mountains got a fair amount and it was cold for
Now it is about swimming weather again. But the Fall colors are very
this year, lots of pretty color. One of the joys of living out here is
the four
seasons. Since it is quiet in my new office I have some time to reflect
things, as you know a button with me is the Politically Correct
it dawned on me, I feel it erodes my freedom of speech when some other
party feels they must tell me what to say and how to say it. It is a
short trip to censorship, so I guess I will wander on ticking people
off. If
you need to comment, feel free to.
