Dishwasher Spot Removal

cleanglass

To remove hard water spots from dishes and glasses, try soaking them in a solution of water and vinegar. Let them soak for a few hours, then wash as you normally would. You can also try adding a little vinegar to your dishwasher cycle to help avoid the spots from occurring.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
