Each drawer or closet that I organize reveals different missing treasures from the past year.A photo or letter that slipped behind something,the back of my favorite earring,etc.
Find anything UNUSUALLY INTERESTING today?
I’m still hoping I’ll find $100 bill in an old coat pocket or something!April 8, 2011 1:46 am at 1:46 am #864837
Oh! And I FOUND a solution to the great cleaning lady with the….aroma.
I lit 2 scented candles,opened almost all the windows,and gave her a bag of nice fresh clothes to take home. (The aromatherapy worked!!)April 8, 2011 1:55 am at 1:55 am #864838
opened almost all the windows..
So who are your neighbors?April 8, 2011 2:43 am at 2:43 am #864839
do you know what i found -out- today, that when you clean walls for pesach with a wet shmata and soft scrub, you don’t need to paint anymore. soft scrub (done right) does a wonderful job. it gives it a fresh look.April 8, 2011 3:01 am at 3:01 am #864840

My aunt called me for a phone number my mother had and I told her I would look for it. The next day I was sorting through some of my mothers papers and was not particularly looking for that phone number and there it was on piece of paper.April 8, 2011 3:32 am at 3:32 am #864842

deiye, when you clean walls for pesach with a wet shmata and soft scrub, you don’t need to paint anymore. soft scrub (done right) does a wonderful job. it gives it a fresh look.
As long as you dont try that on ceilings. I did that one year and what a streaky mess it left, it was worse than in the beginning. Painted ceilings arent easily cleaned. I learned my lesson good.April 8, 2011 3:48 am at 3:48 am #864844

Is this an interesting find? A large handful of pasta (somewhat moldy, not raw) INSIDE my son’s boot! (No, I don’t usually clean inside boots, my toddler somehow got to it and dumped it all over an already cleaned room!) Does this mean I have to go back to all the closets and dump out each shoe to make sure there’s nothing inside. . .? And please, someone figure out for me HOW ON EARTH it got there in the first place!
Second traumatic find of the week: A whole Cheerio on the floor of an already cleaned room. I haven’t had Cheerios in my house in months!!!!! (Honestly I think this one may have fallen off the bottom of a table that was a kitchen table over a year ago, but has been moonlighting as a computer desk in above mentioned room. I didn’t scrub down the bottom of the “computer desk” as I no longer think of it as a kitchen table — I guess that’s the next thing on the list. . .)April 8, 2011 6:33 am at 6:33 am #864846commonsenseParticipant
m, one year after we cleaned our car from head to toe we found a pretzel sitting on the floor. We recleaned and were convinced it was as clean as could be, and soon after found cheerios. We could not believe it!!! Also had no idea where these things were hiding. My husband realized that there was a built in cupholder in the middle seat that retracted and when there was food in it(which was often) it sometimes got deposited inside the back of the seat and would fall out when it got jostled. the rest of the year we would not have noticed because our car is not the cleanest to be honest but when our car was spotless it became evident. We didn’t want to have a problem over pesach, so we took off the back of the car, cleaned and put it back on.April 8, 2011 8:03 am at 8:03 am #864847chocandpatienceMember
Ofcourse: I second that about no wet shmattas on ceilings. I did that last year to take off a mark and regretted it.April 8, 2011 10:22 am at 10:22 am #864848Shticky GuyParticipant

we start our bag of bags collection each year with the bags that we get at the car show (jaguar had some strong bags in ’06), and of course we double bag each bag of bagged fruits and vegetables when shopping at the fruit store.April 10, 2011 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #864861hanibParticipant

I was going through my couch and guess what!?!?

ZK, yes i sure do.
in those olden times, I was just a reader, even now, I do not post much. I like reading and learning, rather than posting my opinions.
All I remember is that eclipse left us without any prior notice, I dont know her but I hope that all is well with her.April 1, 2012 10:59 pm at 10:59 pm #864874
She was such a personality. She had us ALL in the palm of her hands, reading and sharing her posts, stories, saga. It was so riveting, moving. She indicated earlier that she’d leave, she came back for some while and then sort of just left. I too miss those lines, posts, masterful threads.April 2, 2012 12:06 am at 12:06 am #864875147Participant
Let you know, after I perform Bedikas chometz.April 2, 2012 5:17 am at 5:17 am #864876i am hereMember

Kindly send her my recent regards. (It’s the special guards – the re-gards)
