Welcome Sisters

This is our own Relief Society site for our ward. It is a in an effort to bring us closer together. It is another way to feel a part and be connected. This is like another newsletter. I hope you find it encouraging and supportive in our sisterhood. Enjoy!!

Relief Society Rock Climbing Adventures!

Sister Morgan organized a fun activity of rock climbing at the Henderson's home. The Henderson's were very gracious and generous to open up their home for our fun adventure. Everyone had a wonderful time and hopefully not to sore, stiff, or too stuffed from all the yummy treats. Thank you everyone for coming out and having a bit of fun girl time.

Provident Living Message

Sisters, as you know, I am the Provident Living Sister for our Ward, and this month I thought I would share a couple of VERY providential tips!!
One is how to get GUM out of clothing, hair, furniture, rugs, and just about anything. If you like to scrape off most of the gum be very careful indeed with that ice cube and knife because you can actually nick the fibers of the surface and then it will lead to a hole later. I don't bother much with scraping anything. If I can pull off the 'largest amount' fine, if not I just go into the Peanut Butter routine. I take an appropriate amount of peanut butter and gently rub it into the offending gum. It shrinks and disintegrates the gum so that finally all you need to do is use some liquid dish detergent and hand-hot water to wash out the oiliness of the peanut butter. It truly works, and has saved me a lot of grief over the years. It really works, too on gum-in-hair problems!!!

Two is how to get motor oil/grease out of a carpet. This really happened to me a few years ago!!!! I used UNDILUTED dish detergent and an old washcloth. I rubbed at the motor oil with the washcloth (best if you can rub from the outside of the stain to the inside of it to avoid spreading the stain.) You may have to use more than one washcloth (old towel, etc) to avoid rubbing dirt back into the cleaned area. When the oil/grease is all up use ammonia on a cloth to get up the residue of the detergent. Water is hopeless, you'll be swamped in bubbles. Just be careful with the ammonia, open the window or door if possible to avoid breathing the fumes. If you don't get up the detergent it will attract dust and dirt to that spot.

Sisters, if anyone is interested in canning just let me know (301)884-2349. I have extra equipment and more than one pressure canner, so I could show anyone how to do fruits and veg, or meats. Just be aware that the ONLY method the USDA recommends for non-acid foods is pressure canning, because the water bath method (boiling water bath) doesn't reach a high enough temperature to kill off all the bacteria that may be lurking in our non-acid foods. Meat, for example, could be very dangerous if not properly preserved.

Sisters, if I can help with anything at all, please give me a call.
