Great Pins October 4, 2012

Am I the only Pinterest user who pins all day, everyday, but never uses the things I pinned?!  Well, I decided to try a few things out today.

1. Vinegar for Vinyl: I, unfortunately, have vinyl floors in my kitchen.  I usually mop them with a Swiffer Wet Jet, but today I found my solution bottle to be empty…shoot.  I decided to try a Pin that suggested mopping vinyl with a 1/2 cup of white vinegar in a bucket of hot water.  It actually cleaned my floors super well!  I was very impressed with the degree of clean that I was able to obtain.  Buuuuutttt…now my house smelled like a pickle factory.  BLAH.

on to my 2nd Pin

2. Vanilla in the Oven (a deodorizer): I was assured that realtors use this little “trick” when showing a house.  I put 2 cap-fulls of vanilla extract in a ramekin and popped it into a 300 degree oven.  They were right! In about 15 minutes, my house no longer smelled like vinegar and now smelled of baked goods.  Buuuuuutttt…I didn’t have anything yummy to look forward to.  *tears*

and now for the 3rd Pin

3. Caramel Apple Upside-Down Cake: This one deserves a picture.  I haven’t made it yet, but I plan to do just that for us to enjoy during Bible Study tonight.  I’ll let you know how it goes!
