    We've been busy preparing for the big storm: dishes, laundry, wood, grocery shopping, meal prep, water storage. Almost feels like we're back in the middle-of-nowhere-Arizona! Everything for tomorrow got canceled, so we are all looking forward to a day of staying at home. We want to go watch the waves (at a safe distance), but we are on the wrong side of a part of the highway that tends to flood when high tides and storms mix together. Tomorrow's high tide is smack dab in the middle of the day, so I don't know if that will happen.

    I have to try that on my tub. Nothing seems to get it completely clean, no matter how much I scrub

    Early voting started in our state this week. I was happy to go and have that done. While I realize that there is 3 more weeks of craziness left to go, it felt good to think that I was done with it.

    RM, I dye my hair purple, which tends to leave a light purple residue around my shower. I can steam it up, but it takes FOREVER (over an hour easy). The baking soda/dawn cleaned it up with less than 20 minutes of work time for me. And my shower has seriously never looked cleaner! I hate the smell of Dawn, so that sucks, but it works amazingly well for something so simple that most ppl will have in their house. Even better, almost NO scrubbing required!

    Imma try that on my tubs, too! One became dingy after nothing worse than DS4 rinsing off his grubby outside feet in the tub.

    I'm going to give it a try as well.

    One other tip about fiberglass shower surrounds from a plumber friend. He puts a light layer of car wax on every once in a while (after a cleaning, of course). Says it helps keep in clean. I personally have never tried it as it seems weird to me, but I thought I'd throw that out there.

    So far, working pretty good on the not to bad crap on bottom of oven. The leftover burnt on stuff the self-clean didn't touch.
    Doing round #2 on the really bad stuff where the door closes. We will see.

    A&W, you trying the baking soda/dawn on your oven? I did learn that vinegar smell lingers for about an hour of baking, but it doesn't seem to affect the taste of the food (though I don't think I'd risk baking anything chocolate in it right away as chocolate picks up flavors stupid easy)
