Good Morning. I have been up and about for over four hours, how about you?

Today's simple cleaning tip is stop buying those rollers to get up hairs, buy one pair of gloves with waffle finger tips. What do you do with a depleted roller? Most people put them in the trash. Me too but to keep more plastic out of the landfills, you can use rubber gloves to rub over a surface and the hairs roll up and then you can pick them up and toss them out.

Lets think about labels. They are necessary to show size and how to clean and they even list what the items are made from. But I just hate the beggars and cut them out of each and every thing. Why not put all this info on a stamp like the Hanes company or on the package. Nuf said.

New Apple Crisp

1 box yellow cake mix
2 - 3 Tbsp of brown sugar
2 Tsp of cinnamon
1 stick of butter
1 cup chopped pecans
5-6 apples

Thoroughly mix the first three ingredients and then with a pastry tool cut the soften butter into mixture. It will be very lumpy. Put the chopped pecans and thinly sliced apples into the lumpy mixture and stir until all the apples and pecans are well coated. Put this into a grease sheet pan and cook at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. As soon as you take it from the oven, pour Carmel sauce over the hot crisp. Serve with ice cream .

The kitty justice is that both things shared today are SIMPLE but good.

Lady Di,

That is a great tip. Rubber gloves will do the job just as well. I have also used tape to pick up hair.

Your apple crisp recipe sounds delicious. I have Grandma's recipe but this one is just a bit different. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings for a great day.

Simple ideas are often the best. Anything to keep plastic out of landfills is good. As too much of it also ends up in the ocean.

Glad to help. I always like cheap and easy tips. You can only eat a little bit of the crisp as it is so rich it will make your hair curl. Peace

I knew we had trouble with plastic in landfills and lakes but had not ever thought the ocean was a dumping spot for plastic. Peace

Hi Lady Di, Great tip ill try that, I use a damp cloth to remove hair or fluff from clothes.

I'll be happy to share the Flower, but as for that other stuff... I'm out of here! ^te he^ ~ jb///

Yep a whole stick of butter. Southern do not think there is such a thing as too much butter. I hope you like the recipe and the gloves are the best thing yet for pet hair. Hope your daughter enjoys her new frig as much as I enjoy mine.

You are a scream. Lol

Peace to both
