Five Facts Friday

1. Prevent silverware from falling through the utensil basket in the dishwasher, by placing a mesh scrubber at the bottom of the basket.

2. An average ice-cream scoop holds 1/2 cup.

3. To easily remove burnt food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to a boil on the stove top.

4. Don't throw away your leftover coffee in the morning. Pour it around your plants to promote blooming and/or growth.

5. It's easy to read a rain gauge if you put a few drops of food coloring in the tube. Even if the colored water dries up, there is enough residue to help read the next rainfall.
