I adore reading "tips" at the back of homey cookbooks. In fact, any time I see "tips" I feel compelled to read them even though I can't possibly remember them all.
You know how some stores, especially the secondhand kind, stick their superglue pricetags right on the item? I tried scraping it off with my fingernail, I tried leaving it in the dishwater to soak. . . now I know just what to do!
Here's the trick: apply a little oil or a thin layer of shortening to a stubbornly sticking price tag; give it some time, a few hours, and then it should wash right off with soap and warm water. (I'd credit the cookbook if I could remember but, you know, I read so many tips, I just can't remember. . .)
Do you have a favorite housekeeping tip/trick? Where did you get your tip?
P.S. I hope you can join us for Shoestring Chic tomorrow! (details on the sidebar)
