Will you share some of your helpful tips ?

Related to anything, kids, cleaning, organizing, whatever. Mine would be related to cleaning. Rubbing alcohol... It is a wonder cleaner for anything sticky. It removes pine sap from vehicles, sticky messes, etc. . I just realized I had left tape around a ceiling fixture from project a couple of years age. the adhesive was stuck to the fixture and is coming off effortlessly with alcohol, it's cheap and non greasy like the other over the counter products.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide for removing blood from clothing! It's amazing, even if it's dry. (And it doesn't bleach out the fabric)

  • My hint is buy a bunch of hamburger when it's on sale. Brown it, drain it, let it cool, then put it in plastic containers & freeze. It's there waiting when you need to use it. Doesn't take long to thaw. I try to keep 5 or more on hand. Takes a while to cook it all, but worth it for me.

  • Scrub a water & baking soda paste on the wall for removing crayons! takes effort but it comes off and other stains too. When there are good sales I will buy like 5 or 6 of something do it all the time it could be anything haha...

  • If I'm in a hurry, I clean the 1/2 bathroom with a baby wipe. I sterilize the kitchen sponge by putting it in a bowl and microwaving it for a few minutes. I distract my two year old (when she is up to no good) by asking her to push the button to start the washer, dryer or microwave. She can't pass up a button and it makes me do a chore I'd like to avoid.
