I love household tips and have many books with suggestions which I enjoy reading. Household tips using Vinegar, another for Lemons.....no end! lol

One thing I regularly do is to cut a lemon into thick slices and place a slice in each sink basin. I love the fresh natural zingy Lemon smell and I like to wipe the sinks around with the Lemon slices to remove any residual wash up liquid or whatever. Makes the stainless Steel sparkle beautifully too.

I tend to save the objects individually in AD format, or sometimes I do what Lin and MaryLou does.

It's good to dig deeper into things though, that's how we find out. Besides that I would hate to miss out on something really good.  :elmo:

As with just about any program, you are only limited by the amount of hard drive space you have.  When I was a PI user, I put EVERYTHING in the Easy Palette.  It was (and still is) loaded with years worth of graphics.  I"ve been trying to export them all out but I've got so much that it would take forever! :hal18:

I have gotten used to the crop tool and it works just fine for me... that is, as long as I remember to go up and click the Move tool to complete the crop.  Maybe that's the part you were skipping, Nicky?

I'm trying to catch up on all the things I couldn't do when it was so hot!  We are heading into our winter and I have a lot to do outdoors.  I went out today and cleaned out the dead plants and weeds that sneak into my  planter pots.  Still have a lot of outdoor work to do  but it will have to wait until after the winds die down.  It hasn't actually started to rain yet - but the weather man says it will come.

I use a Windex Outdoor cleaner.  It has an extendable handle and you attach a windex pad to the head part.  Wet the window, go over it with the Windex pad and rinse.  One pad will do 20 windows.  It does a pretty good job.  Maybe not as good as if I did them by hand but I'm not about to get back up on a ladder.  I don't like falling!!  :laugh8:

My windows need washing and it always happens when I was the windows as well and at the moment we are having rain so my plan is to clean them before the end of the month.

They do look nice when they are all nice and clean

I just washed all of my windows on the outside and inside.  They really look great.. and shiny!!!  But... as you might have guessed, rain is predicted for tomorrow!!   Why does that happen?  If I wash either my car or a window, it rains!!  Oh well, I got to enjoy them for one day!!! :laugh8:

Mine is pretty thick too but it goes a very long way.  I have a soap dispenser on my kitchen sink and when I push it, the same amount comes out every time.  I only have to re-fill it a few times a year.  That's been a huge saver.

The other thing I do to save resources is, I take a scissor and cut a small round "hole" out of my bath sponge. It's not a deep hole.  I  use shower gel (hate soap scum) and fill the little hole.  That's more than enough for a shower.  I find my shower gel lasts twice as long.   It also means I don't have to clean soap scum from the glass door.  Haven't used soap in years.

When you have only one income, you really learn to conserve.    :elmo: :elmo:

Good idea cutting them in two. I do that with washing up liquid....well not cut exactly!  :elmo:  The stuff is so concentrated these days that it's to wipe away from sink units and leave a gloopy residue which I can't stand!.  I pour half a bottle of the liquid into an empty liquid bottle, top up with water and give it a good shake up.  A squirt is still powerful enough to have a bowl of very soapy water and I get two bottles for the price of one! lol
