YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY! "Fun Thanksgiving Activity"

by Scott Zeller

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

"Fun Thanksgiving Activity"

Give hyper kids something to do and decorate your table at the same time this Thanksgiving by sending them into the yard to find the last remaining yellow, red and orange leaves. Make sure they're not visibly dirty, then arrange them along the middle of the table in lieu of a runner. We love this activity because it's good for kids of any age, and the older ones can help the younger ones.

 

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY! "Hot Potatoes"

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

"Hot Potatoes"

Skip the last-minute panic on major holidays and mash the potatoes first thing in the morning. Transfer them to a slow cooker while you move onto the stuffing and string beans. Two hours before you're ready to serve the meal, turn on the slow cooker. You won't have to give the potatoes another thought until the guests are seated and it's time to serve the meal.

"Boost Your Alarm Clock's Power"
 
If "brrrring!!!" isn't enough to wake you up anymore, maybe it's time to make your alarm even louder. Place it on a cookie tin lid, metal tray or ceramic tile. The material will amplify the sound, creating a "BRRRRNG!!!" you can't ignore.
 

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY! "Getting Cutting Boards to Stay Put"

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

"Getting Cutting Boards to Stay Put"

Cutting boards that slip around on the counter are an obvious no-no, yet it's amazing how you can turn cutting a watermelon into an extreme sport! But all that extra shelf liner in the party can come in handy. Simply cut it to the right size to use as a placemat for the board & it'll never slip again.

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY! "Safe Septic Tank Cleaner"

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

"Safe Septic Tank Cleaner"

When buying your first new home, you probably thought about the backyard parties and a basement rec room. Cleaning the septic tank? Not so much. Still, the time will come when it needs to be done. Add 2 tablespoons baker's yeast and 2 cups brown sugar to 4 cups warm water. Flush the mix down the toilet and let sit overnight.


YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY! "Save Energy This Christmas"

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

Save Energy This Christmas

"Did you know that one strand of traditional Christmas lights running five hours a day for 30 days can add up to $10 to your electricity bill? This Christmas, make sure you use LED lights, which only run you 12 cents for the same amount of time. LED lights also last much longer!"

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY! "Rings Around the Table"

by Scott Zeller

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

"Rings Around the Table"

If you've got kids, you probably have watermarks on your finished wood table. Since they may never listen to your please to use a coaster, use a little petroleum jelly to remove the white stains. Just rub the area with the jelly and let sit for several hours (or even overnight). Then rub again with a soft cloth and the stain should disappear.


YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY! "Oven Mitts for Your Car"

by Scott Zeller

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

"Oven Mitts for Your Car"

When it's time to retire your oven mitts because they're covered in stains and burn marks, don't throw them away. Save them for use with your car. Oven mitts are great to use when handling hot engine parts or even as a washing mitt.


YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

"Cleaning Blenders and Food Processors"

If you haven't had time to do the dishes and dried-on food gets stuck in the blades of your blender or food processor, baking soda can help. Add 1 tablespoon baking soda along with 1 cup warm water to the bowl, put the lid on, and let it blend for 10-15 seconds. Then wash as usual.

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY! "Another Reason to Love Coca-Cola"

by Scott Zeller

YOUR "Z" TEAM TIP OF THE DAY!

"Another Reason to Love Coca-Cola"

When you buy a rust remover, what you're really paying for is phosphoric acid. However, phosphoric acid can also be found in something you probably have around the house - cola. Dip screws or anything else that needs de-rusting into cola and leave for several minutes. Then scrub away the black substance that remains and repeat if necessary.
