I bought a baby monitor for “my baby” aka Kallie Kat. (Yes my neighbor looked at me funny too.) My cat spends a lot of time outside now and my house is so soundproof I don’t hear her when she wants in. Well this monitor works so well I can hear the dogs barking in the next subdivision, the crows having a “caw” fight and leaves rustling. If she meows I hear it. One night however I heard what sounded like heavy breathing. I switched on the lights and there was nothing there. I turn off the monitor now when Kallie is inside.

I accidently discovered something that actually polishes stainless steel. I’ve tried various commercial products without success. What actually worked was cleaning the surface with a homemade spray comprised of vinegar, dish soap and water. Then polish it with Pledge Restore and Shine. It says nothing on the label about stainless steel. The secret is orange oil. My dishwasher looks like new. Try it on your stainless faucets. It shines and water beads up instead of leaving hard scum deposits. Incidentally I will never buy an appliance in stainless steel again. I’m opting for tried and true white.
