10 Fitch InnSider Secret - Amazing Flat Iron In A Bottle! 30 Apr 2015, 4:26 pm

I have a confession to make - I detest ironing and avoid it if at all possible.  

It’s such a time consuming, tedious chore!  

Now, I understand that some people actually find it relaxing, but I can think of much more enjoyable ways to relax :) I try really hard not to buy anything that is going to need ironing.  Years ago I bought a little hand held steamer which I thought would make de-wrinkling my clothes more tolerable and it did, but not much more.  You see, just like the iron, you had to fill it up, but with only distilled water, and then wait a few minutes for it to heat up and start producing steam and then you could use it on your clothes to get the wrinkles out.

Then my life dramatically changed forever a few years ago when I discovered Downey Wrinkle Releaser.  It comes in a spray bottle and works wonders on wrinkles and it’s really quick and easy to use. I loved this stuff and started using it all the time on mine and my husbands clothes.  My mom gave me a travel size bottle which is great because there's only one thing I detest more than ironing and that is ironing while on vacation! Yeah, I'm being a bit dramatic but I think you get my point. My wrinkle releaser has saved me from countless hours of mind-numbing ironing, I am sure!

I bought a bottle to keep in the laundry room for the inns linens and started using it on robes, table cloths, and sheets that came out of the dryer a bit wrinkly. As wonderful as this miraculous concoction is, I did find it to be quite pricey, around $8 for a 16.9 oz bottle, and I was going through a bottle in no time because of course, I wasn’t ironing anything! Then I a couple years ago I found a recipe on Pinterest for a homemade version and have not bought another bottle since! 

The recipe is simple and you only need an empty 16 oz spray bottle, fabric softener, rubbing alcohol and water.  Here's the directions for making your own wrinkle releaser-
  • Put 1 TBS of fabric softener and 1 TBS rubbing alcohol in the spray bottle and then fill the bottle with water, put the spray nozzle on and shake well to mix ingredients.  That’s it!  To use it you can take a garment and leave it on a hanger or lay it out on a flat surface, such as your bed, like I did with the blue shirt in the picture, and then lightly spray where wrinkled.  You want to dampen the fabric but not saturate it. Use your hand to smooth out the wrinkles and tug on the fabric slightly and then let it dry completely and the wrinkles should be gone!
I also use my wrinkle re-leaser to banish static cling, especially on blankets and microfiber sheets in the winter, and to freshen clothing.

So, why not make your own flat-iron-in-a-bottle, wrinkle-re-leaser spray and give it a try?  Tell me what you think!

10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn Rewards Guest Loyalty - New Frequent Fitcher Program 30 Apr 2015, 9:57 am

10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn Rewards Loyal Guests 10 Ways through Frequent Fitcher Program

It's our way of saying "Thank you for being our guests over and over again."


Our mission from the very beginning has been to provide an intimate, romantic escape in the Finger Lakes where couples can experience luxury, comfort, beauty, and relaxation in a way that helps them focus on their relationship, re-kindle passion and deepen their love for one another.  Certainly each and every guest who comes for a stay at 10 Fitch is appreciated and valued greatly, no matter how long their stay with us is. Whether 1 night or 10 nights, we love our guests! 

But a few years ago I realized that we had some guests who had stayed with us every year, or nearly every year, and some had stayed multiple times in a year, since we became the owners of 10 Fitch in 2007.  We have gotten to know these guests more personally and are always excited to have them come back, looking forward to finding out what is going on in their lives because they have become like family.  And while we do equally appreciate each guest, these guests have demonstrated loyalty to 10 Fitch that I felt needed to be recognized and rewarded in a special way.  So, the planning began and has been in the works for some time now until finally, last month, 10 Fitch, your romantic escape in the Finger Lakes, rolled out our brand new loyalty program which we have named, "The Frequent Fitcher Program."

"Thank you for being our guests over and over again."
As the name indicates, you become a member of the program by staying at 10 Fitch frequently.  How frequently?  Well, actually you can space that out anyway you like but, initially, you automatically become a member and enter the program once you have stayed 10 paid nights with us.  Depending on the length of your stay that might happen after just one visit but typically most guests enter the program after coming several times. For example, if you come every year in celebration of your wedding anniversary and stay 2 nights each time, you will become a Frequent Fitcher after 5 years.  Of course if you stay at other times during the year, for example Valentines, a birthday, fall leaf peeping, etc. the time that goes by before you become a FF is significantly reduced.

So how exactly do we recognize and reward our most loyal guests? Here are 10 awesome ways-

  1. Each time you accumulate 10 paid nights with us we will send you a FF Voucher for 1 free night in any available suite on any available date.  There are no black-out dates for using the voucher and it never expires until you redeem it.
  2. You receive 2 entry slips in our annual New Years Eve FREE 2 night stay drawing for every paid night of your stay instead of just 1 entry slip.
  3. We will enter you 3 times in the New Years Eve drawing, instead of once, for every referral that leads to a booking
  4. You will find out about exclusive last minute specials before anyone else.
  5. When you stay 2 or more consecutive nights you may choose from the following list of options to enjoy during your stay with our compliments: breakfast served in your suite one morning OR Cheese Fondue & Sparkling Juice OR Dessert Fondue & Sparkling Juice OR Chocolate Covered Strawberries & Sparkling Juice OR Cheese, Fruit & Cracker Plate & Sparkling Juice.
  6. Possible early check-in if available
  7. Possible late check-out if available.
  8. Prior to arrival request your favorite 10 Fitch breakfast to be served during yoru stay.
  9. Enjoy 10% off everything in our gift shop- sheets, robes, mugs, soap & more.
  10. Your gift certificate purchases for others will count as a 1 night stay for you.
Guests know that they have entered the program and become FF's when they receive a welcome letter along with their free night stay voucher in the mail.

The 10 Fitch Frequent Fitcher Program adds tremendous value to your stay at 10 Fitch. We are thrilled to be able to offer it to you and look forward to seeing you during your next stay to Auburn, NY, in the beautiful Finger Lakes.

In the past two years, Lecrae has released 3 genre-redefining projects. He dropped his first mixtape in 2012, Church Clothes, hosted by Don Canon, which went double platinum on Datpiff, garnering over 500,000 downloads and debuting #10 on iTunes as an EP.
Following that, in probably what was a major upset in Gospel music, Lecrae made history as the first hip-hop artist to win a GRAMMY® award in the Best Gospel Album category for his sixth studio album Gravity. Gravity debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Rap Charts, and #1 Independent with over 73K units sold during its first week. The album featured key production from GRAMMY® award winning producers DJ Khalil and Heat Academy. He also celebrated video premieres of his singles "Mayday," "Fakin'," and “Confessions” on BET and MTV. Along with the biggest win of his career, Lecrae was also nominated for a Billboard Award, BET Award and Soul Train Award, and won a Dove Award. Lecrae closed out an incredible 2013 on several major tours, including Rock the Bells, and put out his second mixtape, Church Clothes 2, which has sold over 40K units after being downloaded over 150,000 times. www.rbtl.org.

Clean The Stains from Your Enamelware Pot in 15 Minutes 30 Mar 2015, 12:20 pm

If you own an enamel pot then I'll bet you've burned something in it before.

InnSider Secret: Here's how to get the stains out in 15 minutes!


My beloved MacKenzie Childs stock pot gets well used here at the inn.  Among other things, we make large batches of lemon curd in this pot and if you don't watch lemon curd carefully or if you don't stir it constantly while it's cooking you end up with a burned bottom on the inside of your pot. 

Some scrubbing got rid of the crud but there was still a really ugly stain left behind and while this doesn't affect the pots ability to be used it just doesn't look clean.

As I was wondering how I was going to get the stain out of my pot I remembered how well a dish detergent tab had worked on the inside of our stainless steel coffee carafes so I thought I'd give it a shot.  My results are shown above. Although the stain is not completely gone it sure is a lot better than it was before.

Here's what I did -
  1. Put the pot on the stove and add a couple inches of water in the bottom.  
  2. Turn the burner on and bring the water to a boil over medium high heat and then turn the heat down to simmer.
  3. Add a couple of squirts of dish soap - I used Dawn Direct Platinum Foam 
  4. Add a dishwasher tab - I used  Finish Power Ball
  5. Put a timer on and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes your results should be similar to mine but if not try letting it "cook" a little longer.
That's it!  Rinse and dry the pot and you are ready to go!  I hope you enjoyed this InnSider Secret from 10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn and that this works as well for you as it did for me.

March Madness at 10 Fitch in Auburn NY - We're Celebrating Your Un-birthday! 18 Mar 2015, 10:48 am

 Wonderland Awaits! 

Don't Be Late!


Yes, today is March 18th and we are 3 weeks into the month already and I'm just now posting about March Madness. Better late than never right?  I'm sure the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland would agree.

We did announce March Madness in our March newsletter which went out at the end of February and I also posted an announcement about it on the 10 Fitch homepage.  The thing is I wasn't entirely sure I was going to do March Madness this year.  But let me back up a bit-

First of all, our March Madness at 10 Fitch has nothing to do with basketball.  I borrowed the title a few years ago when we we were trying to figure out a way to get more people to come for a visit during the month of March.  So I came up with the idea to call it March Madness and promote it by saying we'd gone crazy and were giving prizes away to our guests during the month of March.  We had a lot of fun and so did our guests. In fact, that was our best March to date.

I'm not sure why but we didn't do another March Madness promotion again until this year and even though I didn't think to do it this year until the end of February I decided to bump up the fun a little by creating a Wonderland atmosphere here.

We are adorned for the Mad Hatter's un-birthday tea party and all our guests who come in March are the guests of honor at the party.

Now, the party isn't a literal tea party but is rather an ongoing tea party themed celebration going on all month.  And we have plenty of tea and other beverages on hand as well as goodies and presents so it is very festive and fun.

I asked the white bunny if he would do a little video with me for you and he reluctantly agreed.  You can see the videos that we did below - the white bunny is in two of them :)

The White Rabbits Debut


What Can You Do In The Finger Lakes In March?  I'll let you know in this video!
