    Some great tips here, will be tackling our windows this weekend…ugh! Wish I had known about the Lego tip back in the day. I just used to fill the laundry tub with hot soapy water and let em soak for a few hours, rinse and dry outside in the sun on a picnic blanket or a few beach towels.

    Gardeners should always keep the original blue Dawn with them when working outside. If you think you may have come in contact with poison ivy, immediately wash the affected area with the blue Dawn. It is known for cutting grease and oil and the worst part of poison ivy is the oil it leaves on your skin.
