Zoku Metal Pocket Straw

This is a great telescoping straw that you can use, clean with accompanying brush and then put back in its protective case and carry with you or put back in a drawer ready for use again and again. It is well made and even has a silicone piece at the top that you actually put your mouth on to suck so you don’t actually put your mouth on any metal piece that some may find uncomfortable. It unfolds to nine inches so can be very accommodating to whatever glass you might be wanting to use it with. The brush is a nice tight fit inside the straw so using it briskly under hot soap and water will quickly clean the inside of your straw so no worries about bacteria. The case has a push on cap that is easy to pull off or push on. To store you simply push the straw closed, push the cleaning brush into the straw and put the folded straw and brush into the container and put on the cap. It is just as simple to use the straw following these instructions in reverse. This is BPA free and can also be used on the upper rack of a dishwasher if you like. It is a great price to get one for each family member to use which helps keep plastic straws out of of landfills. Zoku is a trusted brand for me and makes lots of really cool useful tools and gadgets including this one. Win Zoku’s Stainless Steel Pocket Straw #16 https://widget.gleamjs.io/e.js

Jewelry Storage Idea

9bbad1712cd4f3d1929b87a3c2126815This idea is so great! All you need is some basic items: small hooks, old frame and metal mesh that you can purchase in the garden section of your local home improvement store. Instead of mesh you could also go for a thick (upholstery) type of fabric. The small hooks are attached to the bottom of the frame to allow necklaces to be able to hang. The metal mesh or fabric is attached with a staple gun to the back of the frame. To change this up paint the frame or stain it a different color or distress it. If you do not want the metal to show use a spray enamel and spray the mesh front and back before attaching to the frame.

Easy Solutions To Everyday Messes

1 Put ordinary white candles to use for more than romantic dinner lighting. Rub them on bathroom grout to shield against mold and mildew.

2 Take an Alka-Seltzer tablet from your medicine cabinet and drop it in your toilet bowl for a quick, fizzy clean.

3 Icky buildup on the face of your iron? Lay out a piece of aluminum foil, and iron it. The buildup will stick to the foil. You can also use foil to dispose of cooking grease.

4 Line a cup with foil and pour in the grease. Once the grease has solidified, seal it in the foil and throw the package away.

5 Tackle spilled food in the oven right away by pouring table salt over it. The salt will form a crust that makes the food easy to wipe up. It also reduces the burning smell.
