Works for Me Wednesday

Yes, I am aware that it is Saturday. For those of you who do not know me, I have "timeliness" issues. I tend to be a bit scattered and often forget things. Quite often, in fact. When you stand around a visit with me, I seem perfectly normal and well put together...maybe even quite intelligent (on a good day). However, when you make an appointment or ask me to do something just "gets lost" somewhere in my brain. I like to call it ADD. The Right Reverend just scoffs. I'm not sure what he calls it. I'm not asking because I prefer not to know.

All that to say that many blogs post some handy tip every Wednesday. It's called, you guessed it, "Works for me Wednesday". I am a veritable storehouse of handy little hints. Surely I could do this for years and never run out. Surely. The problem is the time frame. It is supposed to be done on Wednesdays. I don't even work on Wednesdays. sigh.

Know what? Who cares? I'm still gonna post...whenever I think of something cool to tell you about. But I like the name "Works for me Wednesday". Now that you understand the disconnect.......

Cascade Complete.

It is a fabulous dish detergent for the dishwasher. It has enzymes in it that "eat" the food off your dishes so you don't have to rinse as much before loading the dishwasher. I'm all for anything that makes my least favorite chore a little easier.

But wait, there's more! Cascade Complete is also fabulous for things that are hard/impossible to wash in your sink. If you have a big thermos that had some coffee or something left in it for, I don't know......a month or more, you can fill it with hot water and put a teaspoon (or less) of Cascade Complete in it, close and shake or stir it up somehow and let it sit. Soon, (or tomorrow, depending on how you do things) you will have a clean thermos!

It also works on crock pots, coffee percolators and other electrical/cooking devices.

Works for me!!! Even on Saturday.
