  • Would I do it again? yes! The girls absolutely loved these (I mean who wouldn’t want icing and sprinkles first thing in the morning?!)
  • What I would do differently: I’m sure the creative mind would think of doing all sorts of cute things with these (Megan, Aunt Cindy), but me, nada! 😉

  • Project: day 120: organizational chaos/ spring cleaning/ deep clean your dishwasher!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1 (just a bit time consuming, but not as long as the washing machine was to deep clean!)
  • Would I do it again? yes, it was really pretty simple, and probably should be done more often than I have, but hey, that’s the way it goes!
  • What I would do differently: nada 😉
  • Items used: “Place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor. Next, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle. The baking soda will help freshen and removing stains.”

Until ipinterest tomorrow!
