Ida - BUGS!!!
I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball
biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor
with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared.
The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle
and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila!
That worked as well. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the
area around the food table, the children's swing area, and the standing
Tick Removal ......From Ida
I have not personally tried this, so don't know if it works.
Spring is here and the ticks will soon be
showing their heads. Here is a good way to get them off you, your
children, or your pets. Give it a try. Apply a glob of liquid soap
to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton ball
and swab it for a few seconds (15-20). The tick will come out on
its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it
During the summer, I don't leave home without
it.....Pass it on
Get Rid of That Itch! Everyone
needs to buy a tube of FIRST BITE from the Wal-Mart
pharmacy department. You may have to ask them to locate it for you
but most of them carry it. It is so good for any bug bites you may
get that itches. It was the only thing we tried to kill the itch
from “No see ums” in Colorado. We tried every other
itch medication we could find and nothing else could touch them.
It is also good for chiggers, & mosquito bites. They make one
that is kid's strength, but it isn’t as good.
Cleaning your ceilings:
For those of you who have the carpet type ceilings in your rig and
perhaps have a stain on it. This was given to me by Travel Supreme
when we were at the service center in Wakarusa.
In a spray bottle mix:
1/4 Cup of Vinegar
1/4 Cup of Bleach
1/4 Cup Club Soda
1 Cup Warm Water
Spray this mixture on your stain and let
it dry. Do not saturate your ceiling.
Let it dry. If some stain remains, spray again. You can spray this
as many times as it takes to remove the stain. Just be sure to not
saturate the ceiling, getting it that wet can cause the carpet stuff
to come unglued.
This mixture will not harm the carpet on
uses a "Cheeper Creeper" to work underneath
the motorhome. Cheeper Creeper is an alternative to raised, wheeled
underbody service devices. I thinks it works really well. Here is
the web site for it. Ranger
Design "Cheeper Creeper".
I bought one of these and it really works!
I can change my oil now without putting the truck on a ramp (much
safer). (If I lost some weight, I would not have to inhale to get
under the step tubes). Actually it is easier to scoot around on
one of these than it is on a conventional creeper (with rollers).
They are worth the money!
those of you that can't see your hitch platform when you are hooking
up, I have a low cost solution- less than $20! If you are interested
send me an E-mail and I will tell you what I did.
