Two ugly chores performed in honor of a new year’s clean slate were ticked off the list today:
- I ran vinegar through the coffee maker to loosen the grit. Don’t neglect running two or three water-only pots afterward or your next cup of coffee will taste like salad dressing.
- The level of gummy hairspray on my hair brush had reached a 10 on the Disgusting Meter. When it comes to that, it’s time for a long soak in a sink of dish soap and hot water to soften the spew. A scrubbing with a toothbrush takes care of what’s left.
Coffee maker and hair brush are as good as new again!
