Kitchen and Household Tips for this week:

Soap Film Removal from Glasses in Dishwasher
You can remove a soap film left on glassware in a dishwasher by rinsing
them with vinegar. If this is a continuous problem for you, you may want
add a half cup of vinegar the next time you wash the dishes. This will
soap scum from both the dishes and the inside of your dishwasher. You
also want to try using less detergent than recommended if your water is
which is often the cause of soap residue.

If you have kitchen or household tips that you would like
to share with fellow readers, please jot them down and and

sound thats why she dropped the shotgun, or maybe when she flew
about 4 foot, but it was all a bit of a surprise anyway. One of the guys
the shotgun on its way down and two of them went to pick Buffy up. You
could see she was a bit sore but the embarrassment had caused her to
start to
cry(again). She got up and just slowly walked back to her Hummer, she
didnt even burn rubber this time. She left her shotgun there, so Buffy
