Life saving tip

Today, I am going to share a life saving tip with you all. It is the magic combination of vinegar and baking soda. Remember the burning of sakkarai pongal? Here is the before and after of the cooker bottom.

Soak the cooker with vinegar, baking soda mix for about 10 minutes and then wash the burns off. Another way is the add some water, bring it to boil, set aside until water cools down and then wash it off.

This works the best for all pooja items too. Here is the silverware bowl I use for Naivedyam

And for satin fabric sofas. Over the summer, LHB left an open blue marker in living room couch and M noticed it after few days. My heart skipped a beat upon seeing this but couldn’t get to clean it right away. I let it wait till the weekend and researched on cleaning tips. Voila, it’s the same mix that came to rescue. Dip a tissue on vinegar+baking soda mix, gently damp it on the surface slowly. It took me 30 minutes to clean but the result was very rewarding. I was grinning ear to ear 🙂

P.S: Upon my humble request (or so I think), Adi made twisted version of the Khari today. It was polished off by the family in minutes! Side is cinnamon+sugar+butter dip 🙂

Today has been a relaxing day. Made Idli/coconut chutney for breakfast, then LHB and I went outside for one hour walk, relaxed for a while and now busy with making a bird feed for LHB’s cub scout requirement. We have a virtual dinosaur overnight museum to visit later today. See you all tomorrow!
