Summer is the season of grass stains. To remove grass stains from clothing, brush some white non gel toothpaste into the stain with an old soft toothbrush, then rinse and launder in the usual way.
With holiday time here once more, trips to the beach or the mountains for a picnic or hiking may be on the cards. Pack a couple of bandannas. They carry no weight but could prove very useful as facecloths, napkins, bandages or even as a sling for an injured arm. Worn foreign-legion style under a baseball cap will save the back of the neck from sunburn.
If you intend going hiking, tell someone where you are going and ETR (estimated time of return). Make sure your mobile/cell phone is charged, but allow for the loss of signal and bring a good whistle. A brightly coloured t-shirt will make you easier to find in the case of emergency.
Timely reminder of ICE Numbers… You have forgotten the Podcast I made back in September ’06. It is worth a listen it only takes two minutes and it might save your life!
How do you choose a lemon? Feel the weight of it. If it is heavy then there will be plenty of juice. If your lemon is light and seems dry, then boil it for a few minutes and you will get more juice from it.
Right, I mentioned ice and lemon, I am off now to add them to my gin! Cheers!
