Ahh, I'm so happy my mother has revived her "For Jacinda" board!... Get Rid of Ants with cornmeal. Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it, and move to ant heaven. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!

How to Clean Your Dishwasher In A Few Simple Steps
(great to remember for move-out or in) 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.... good to do every 6 mths
