One More Time – Clean This!

  • Coffee or Spice Grinder – to clean up the stains you can pulverize bread or
    uncooked white rice to pick up lingering aromas. You can also use 1 tablespoon
    baking soda and wipe thoroughly.

  • Crockpot – spray a bit of fume-free oven cleaner on it in a
    well-ventilated room or outside for the exterior heat pot. Let sit for five
    minutes. For the crock itself use some Bar Keeper’s Friend will get the gunk
    off. Create a paste on your sponge or rag and rub gently for about five minutes
  • Oven Cleaning – clean your oven while you sleep by putting ½ cup of
    ammonia in a cold oven overnight. Morning clean up is a breeze. Just wipe it
  • Curling Iron – rub with a clean piece of steel wool.
  • Dishwasher – before you start inspect the drain or the filter
    unit. Remove the bottom rack. Remove any foreign objects or debris. Remove and
    inspect the holes in the sprayer arm(s). You can use a toothbrush dipped in
    vinegar or a toothpick to clean. Place rack and sprayer arm(s) back in
    dishwasher. Set a small dishwasher safe bowl on the top rack of the empty
    dishwasher and fill with white vinegar. Close door and run a cycle on the
    hottest setting.
  • Engagement
    – make a paste using baking soda
    and water and brush on with a toothbrush.
  • Floor Grease – grab a bucket and create a solution of ¼ cup white
    vinegar, 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap, ¼ cup washing soda and 2 gallons of warm
    tap water. Mop as usual.
  • Instant Pot
    Silicone Ring
    – if the silicone ring
    that came with your pot begins to smell, even after washing, add two cups of
    vinegar or water + lemon rind to the pot. Place it on the “steam” setting for
    two minutes. Allow ring to air dry when done.
  • Microwave – set up a microwaveable bowl with water and sliced
    lemons and microwave for 5 minutes. The steam will dissolve stuck-on stains.
    Wipe out when done.

 Greenville Area Update

  • Greenville SC
    area restaurants are showing some flexibility in the outdoor dining arena
    during this phased reopening. For those who are a bit timid about dining inside
    eating outside is a good alternative. Diners are less likely to contract
    COVID-19 eating outside than eating inside per the CDC.
  • Clemson’s Patrick
    Square will be getting a brewery, a community pool and more single-family homes
    in the sprawling Issaqueena Trail planned development. A mixed-use building
    called The Exchange will house Kite Hill Brewery. It will have an outdoor beer
    garden and 10-barrel brewing operation. The Exchange will be 2-stories and have
    room for a restaurant, retail on the first level and around 30 office spaces.
    The Exchange is one of several projects planned in the 173-acre Patrick Square
    development. There will be about 435 homes and a dozen businesses. The town
    center area will feature Patrick Square Inn, coffee shop, three restaurants,
    wine bar, office space and a Clemson University learning program for older SC

Real Estate News

In the second
quarter of 2020, about half (49%) of American adults considering a future home
purchase are actively engage in the process of finding a home. If you are
considering selling, today’s buyers are serious and motivated. Low mortgage
rates are giving it that extra boost and demand is growing as more millennials
are entering the housing market.

Over the previous
10 years, the equity position of homeowners has positively changed because of
rising home prices over the last 8 years. Increased equity is enabling
homeowners who want to sell to get an increased profit and then be able to
reinvest that profit into another home.
