Random Tip of the Week

Throw a loosely wadded ball of tin foil in your dryer to get rid of static!

We don't use dryer sheets for a multitude of reasons (that shall be another post) and all of the alternatives we tried...well...they all sucked! I picked up the tin foil trick from a random source (I can no longer remember) and it works like a charm. I don't even use brand new foil. I reuse a piece of foil that was covering something in the fridge or freezer (a piece that has little to no food on it). I keep the foil ball in the dryer until it sneaks its way out with a load of clothes but that's no biggie because Isaiah's face lights up like a christmas tree when he spies one of these "space balls" amongst the socks. Yeah for foil!

PS: Did you know that you can recycle tin foil with your aluminum cans??? You can.
