Host Dry Extraction Carpet and Grout Cleaning System

How HOST Works


HOST Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaner is a soft, natural product that is environmentally friendly and works in much the same way as an ordinary kitchen sponge. Just like you would use a sponge to wipe up a spill, or to wash and absorb dirt from a counter or wall, HOST is used to wash and absorb dirt from your carpet fibers. As with using a kitchen sponge, you want to limit the amount of water you use while cleaning. Think of the carpet pile as a vertical surface, like a wall. If you use too much liquid, it will run down the yarn toward the carpet backing, just as too much liquid runs down a wall. If you allow this dissolved dirt to run down the backing, it can be more difficult to remove and can wick back.
 Because HOST is a dry carpet cleaning system it carries the liquid ingredients to the carpet fibers in a controlled way. The soft, organic, natural HOST SPONGES contain all the necessary liquid to dissolve and absorb both water based and oil based dirt. It’s moistened with water, detergent and a small amount of safe solvent. And because HOST is a low moisture cleaning system, when you’re finished cleaning, the carpet is dry and ready to use immediately.
Chemical and mechanical action is required to break the oil bond and pull the dirt away from the carpet fibers. Then this loosened dirt must be removed. HOST is formulated to dissolve both types of dirt and then to absorb it. HOST cleaning doesn’t leave a sticky residue to cause rapid resoiling. A trace of SPONGES may remain in the carpet after vacuuming but it is not abrasive or harmful. This trace amount of SPONGES will be removed with subsequent vacuumings. It’s that simple!

Do spices and herbs really go flat after a year?

Do spices and herbs really go flat after a year?
The best part of this post is how to clean your coffee grinder after grinding spices in it.

"Lori suggests that since whole spices last twice as long as ground ones, we consider buying them in their whole form. “Consider buying a mortar and pestle or spice grinder” she suggests. “Or grind spices in your coffee grinder.” I have done this, but have always hated cleaning out my coffee grinder afterward. Of course, she knew how to solve that problem too. “When you’re done grinding spice,” she showed me, “Put a few cubes of fresh bread in the grinder and give it a few twirls. The bread will do the work for you.” Works like a charm."

Burned foods Stainless Steel Pot

Ever forgot you had something cooking on the stove.  The recent cooler weather got me hungry for a pot of beans and flax cornbread.  I put them into the crock pot a little late and had to "hurry some up" on top of the stove.  After we served ourselves, right from the pot, I forgot to turn it off!  You know the rest of the story!  YUK!  Burned beans.  Never mind the smell, my stainless steel pot looked ruined.  Even my Miele Dishwasher, which has successfully won over nearly everything I have thrown at him, was no match for this. 

Baking soda to the rescue!  I put some in the bottom of the pan with just enough water to cover the bottom and put in on the stove (I didn't leave his side this time) and let it boil for a couple of minutes and then simmer for about 5 minutes longer (may require more depending on how severely burned on the food is).  After that, I cleaned the pot, inside and out with Sidol, get yours here.  (Read my blog about this fantastic product here.) Be sure to rinse all the Sidol off the pot before you use it. 

As for my stainless steel pot?  Looks good as new.  I may start using a timer when I cook something on the stove, however, just so I don't forget about it next time.
