I have a TIP

Ok , I was so excited to go on a little outing with a girlfriend today , because Lowe's is opening and I was very eager to get inside and check it out for myself.
My plan was foiled around 3:30 am when my happy dog jumped on me, I obviously was annoyed but still amazed my dog has figured out how to open a closed door , damn lever handles, but it was because one of my children was up with the stomach flu, I guess Lowe's will have to wait.
So I am home cleaning the aftermath , one blanket is fit for the trash , there is no hope .
Funny how I was up and steam cleaning the rug after moving Mason into my room , and hubs was snoring away not hearing a thing , that will always shock me, I mean my steam cleaner is LOUD.

OK here comes my tip:

I was doing a little dusting and noticing the pads on the bottom of my dining chairs were rather dusty , so I used my sticky lint roller to clean off a few legs, which was a pain and it hurt my wrists , and then it occurred to me , rip a sheet off , place it under one leg at a time , voila the perfect way to clean the dusty glider pads on the legs of furniture , one sheet did 6 chairs.

Great idea! I have dogs and the hair sticks to the felt...I will try that trick! Nice work, girly! I hope that your baby girl gets to felling better soon...There is nothing worse than those middle of the night house calls...or Mama calls...Your dog is amazing! What a smart dog! and he knew to wake you!:)

So sorry about your daughter. I hope she feels better soon. The dogs are great "tattle-tales" aren't they?
Lint rollers have so many uses, yours is a good one! I use them to clean lamp shades and chair pads too!
Have a great weekend!
