A friend of mine has a daughter that is an artist. I was telling my friend that I had a particularly tough stain on a shirt and I had all but given up. Normally I have no trouble getting stains out, but my bag of tricks ran out with this one. She told me to buy
"The Masters" Artist's Soap. It is available in art stores and Amazon.

This stuff is just not to be believed. My shirt is as good as new and I have tried it on DH golf shirts that got muddy and could not be bleached and it truly is amazing. It lasts for ever she said and based upon my recent uses, I believe her.

I keep searching out ( I may have even asked here years ago) for a good way to remove onion and garlic odor from WOOD cutting board.
The only thing I find that works is using a glass one and putting in dishwasher.


I keep thinking there has to be a way to get the odor out of wood.

Please do share if you have any.

I sprinkle coarse salt on the board and then "scrub" it with half a lemon. Then just rinse it off with water. It's recommended to wipe it down with food grade mineral oil (or "butcher block oil") after that, but I have to admit I don't do that every time.

I dont have and dont know about wood, but i pour some bleach on my plastic cutting boards to get rid of onion and garlic.
Also removes any stubborn stains, like green from broccoli, red from red peppers etc.

I do this too, but it only takes 10-15 minutes for the bleaching effect to occur so, I don't leave it on overnight.

Use post-it notes when screwing holes in walls for hanging pictures, etc. Just stick it below the place to be screwed and make a fold to hold any plaster dust.

Always set mouse traps in the same place where you caught one at. They follow the scent of each other to find food.
