Works For Me Wednesday


Once in a blue moon I decide that things have to be cleaned -- NOW! This week has been one of those times. I have been washing anything and everything in sight. Yesterday I washed all of our pillows.

Not too long ago I saw on a news show that the majority of weight in a pillow comes from dead skin that is flaked off a person's body. GROSS!! MUST WASH PILLOWS! The only problem with washing pillows is that they didn't always hold their shape. That is until I found a magic solution.....


Tennis balls! If you are like me and can't play tennis then there is another great use for these yellow spheres of wonder. Stick a few in the dryer with your pillows and they will bounce around and keep your pillows from becoming all lumpy. I'm not sure why it works, but it does!
