Ten Things | April 2012

It’s the tenth of the month and that means it is time for another round of 10 Things. Every month, a big group of us from all over the world link up with Shimelle to share ten things, any ten things that strike our fancy. This month, I wanted to share some Pinterest finds.

10 things I have learned on Pinterest

1. Dawn liquid soap works miracles.

Mix it with hydrogen peroxide and it removes arm pit stains. I tried it. It works like a charm. You can also mix it with vinegar and you have a glass cleaner and soap scum remover.

2. Nachoes are not just for tortilla chips.

Apples make a good nacho base too. Especially when you top them with caramel sauce and nuts and chocolate. That is my kind of nacho!

3. Stanford’s digital photography course is available online. For free.

Now that I have a good dSLR, I’m going to review this material. For free, why not?

4. You can find an outfit for any occasion.

But super cute clothes do not fit me, so I don’t spend a lot of time drooling over things I can’t wear. But it is fun to look sometimes.

5. The ironing board is obsolete

This is the coolest idea! When I want to iron something quick (if I even bother to iron at all), I put a towel down on the washing machine but does not work so well. This would be great!

6. You can find instructions to repurpose just about anything.

For instance, an old mug holder makes a great jewelry rack.

7. You can spray paint furniture.

I might have discovered this on my own at Michaels, but I didn’t know you could spray paint furniture so I never would have looked for it. Great idea for all the flea market finds!

8. Jars make good time capsules.

Love this idea. I am glad that other people post their clever stuff for me to find.

9. Snickers candy bars can be a salad ingredient.

Not sure I would really call this a “salad” but it does sound good!

10. If you don’t have the words yourself, someone else has written it and posted it to Pinterest.

  10. Love your list!!!

  11. Lots of goodies on your list!
    I need to show the ironing pad on the washer idea to my husband as we are remodeling down there. Been trying to figure out what to do about an ironing board!

  12. So much to look at in your list – I do try to avoid Pinterest as it is the most fabulous time waster – it just evaporates when you are there LOL!!!

  13. I’m so addicted to Pinterest too
    You can find almost anything if you have the time 🙂

  14. You found some great things. The trick with armpit stains is one I will definitely try as my husband is terrible for excessive deodorant use.

  15. I’m surprised that you were able to narrow it down to ten!

  16. Love Pinterest too!!! You found some way cool stuff!!!!

  17. Great list!! I especially love the Dawn dish soap tips. I’m a sucker for a good cleaning tip 🙂

  18. Great pins.
    I missed the taco dip of oooy gooey goodness 😉

  19. That is an amazingly eclectic list! Pinterest is the best!

  20. Great finds! I am going to try the peroxide + dawn tomorrow!! Thanks so so much.

  21. I’m hooked on pinterest too. Those apples nachos look divine, I’ll definitely be trying that one! And I’m going to check out the photography course too. Thanks for sharing! x

  22. Uhm, might have to convince my husband that the Snickers belong in our salads. Love the taste of them with apples. Might make an interesting salad.

    I love Pinterest.

  23. Fun list! I’ve looked at the outfit site too. I love the picture in a jar idea. I’ve done that with a few of my Ball jars, and it looks really cool.

  24. Thanks for sharing. I am a 10-things drop-out. I hope to join in again in May.

  25. I will try Dawn on my hubby’s tee shirts and see how that works. I alreaday knew about using it with vinegar on soap scum. I don’t think that ironing pad will make the board obsolete because I iron lots of things around the narrow end of the board. Great list, thanks for sharing.

  26. Isn’t Pinterest the BEST PLACE ON EARTH!!!! I love that place. I wish I could go and live there. sigh. I too have learned so many things there. My next project is making my own dishwasher soap. Super excited to see how it turns out.
