I feel like I should be doing more! What about you?

I need to do more, I need to help in my community more or help at school......I just feel like I should be doing more, there are so many places and programs that have been affected by budget cuts and disappearing funding, I helped every day at my daughters school for about 2 weeks last month and she goes to a great school and everyone that works there is dedicated and wonderful but I really got to see first hand how budget cuts have affected the school. It just really got me thinking that I need to chip in more and if everybody could just pitch in just a little somewhere, somehow, it would really make a difference.
I found United We Serve at, you can just plug in your zip or city and it pulls up volunteer opportunities and then you can refine the list depending on what you are interested in. They have toolkits to help you start your own food drive or clothing drive or whatever your volunteer idea may be. They even have widgets for bloggers so you can have them directly on your site or in a post. I grabbed a couple, you can search from here for opportunities, just put in your zip or location.

Feel free to grab the widgets for your own use as well, let's spread the word!

Wash and Reuse Sponges instead of throwing them away!

Who does this too? Instead of throwing away your dishwashing sponge/scrubber when it starts to get stinky or dirty just put it in the top rack of your dishwasher when you run a load of dishes and it's good as new. Obviously when the scrubber part wears out it's not much good anymore but if it's still in good shape why waste it by throwing it away when you can just wash it. I'm able to do this several times before it's worn out and no good anymore.

My Homemade Recipe to keep your Frontload HE Washer Smelling Fresh!

If you have one of the front load HE washers you know that they can sometimes get stinky, mine does and the user manual tells you to leave the door open to let it air out but I can't always leave the door open because of where it is. If you read your instruction manual they tell you to run a special "cleaning cycle" once a month using bleach but a lot of people don't use bleach in their home, you can also buy special tablets that you put in the washer but again they are chemicals and I don't think they really clean the washer they just mask the smell with a heavy scent. I really needed something because mine smelled really musty so I searched the internet and found lots of articles, most of them suggested trying vinegar and or baking soda, so here's what I came up with and it works awesome.
 I run a cleaning cycle (check your instruction manual to find out how to run a cleaning cycle) using vinegar in the soap dispenser then when that is finished I use baking soda and pour it directly into the tub part of the washer and run another cleaning cycle. It comes out smelling fresh and clean, depending on how musty yours is, you may want to repeat this several times to completely get rid of the smell. Once your washer is really clean smelling you'll only have to do this once in a while to maintain.  
I love that it's inexpensive and I'm not using a bunch of chemicals to just mask the odor!

Some tips to protect your Cast Iron!

If you cook with cast iron here is a few tips to protect your investment:

Soap will attack and erode the seasoning of your pan if you soak in soapy water for more than a little while.

The metal can buckle if you expose a hot-off-the-stove pan to cold water.

Washing your pan in the dishwasher will also erode the seasoning, dishwasher detergent is too harsh.

You never want to use a metal scratch pad to clean your cast iron, unless you're removing layers of rust. For everyday cleaning just use a nylon scrubber.

Even a pan that is coated with rust or a layer of char can be rehabilitated, you'll need to scrub with a steel wool pad, wash well in warm soapy water and scrub while pan is wet. Repeat as many times as necessary to remove all the rust then re-season.

Magic Eraser problem solved!

Anyone else love these things, I absolutely love magic erasers, they get stuff off in seconds that you spent hours scrubbing with a regular sponge and you don't have to use chemicals. The only drawback is that they are so expensive, you get 2 in a box like this for $3-$4 unless you get them on sale, they wear out pretty quickly if you use them often so I feel like I am always buying them.

After doing a little research I found out that they are made of melamine so I went to one of my favorite places to shop, eBay of course and I was overwhelmed with the amount of melamine sponges for sale and they are dirt cheap. Literally hundreds of listings, some as low as $ .10 each. You have to search but you can buy as few as 10 or as many as 100 or more. I'm going to buy a few to try it out, just click on the squares to view the listing. Let me know if you buy something and how it compares!

Best way to Reheat Pizza without using the Microwave or Oven!

This tip will change your life forever, if you have ever tried to reheat cold pizza you know that it never turns out just right, if you reheat it in the microwave it's either soggy or so hard you can't chew the crust. If you reheat it in the oven it takes forever and the crust starts burning before all the cheese gets melted all the way through.
Here's what you do: use a regular fry pan on the stove top and NO OIL on medium heat. There should be enough residual oil left in the crust to keep it from sticking, heat until it's warm all the way through and the cheese is melted.
Voila', the crust is crispy, cheese is melted, what more could you ask for!
