10 Fitch InnSider Secret - Easy Way To Clean Your Stove & Gas Grill Grates 4 Aug 2015, 12:33 pm
InnSider Secret - In The Kitchen; 6 Simple Steps to Go from Greasy Mess to Gleaming
|Toaster Oven Tray - Before|
We cook a lot here at 10 Fitch. We make a mess of our stove top and gas grill.
We also have a large toaster/convention oven that we use all the time. One of the things we toast in it is garlic bread, which has a high fat content and therefore makes the tray under the wire rack really grungy. Using any other method to try and clean the baked on grease has resulted only in frustration and disappointment, that is, until now. When I saw this method for cleaning stove top parts I thought I would give it a go on the toaster oven tray and just look at my results are below. I was so happy with how they came out that I cleaned my stove top burners too and they also came out wonderful. If you want to try this yourself -
• Plain household ammonia
• Plastic bags large enough to put your stove grates in and close securely - if you have ziptop bags they will fit in, that’s perfect! If not, then garbage or leaf bags will work if you can tie the opening into a knot or secure closed with a rubber band
• Rubber bands if you need them to close your bag
1. First of all, take a picture of your greasy grates. No, I’m not kidding. Why? Because after you use this InnSider Secret to get them gleaming you may not believe how gross they really were unless you have proof so go ahead and take that picture now, otherwise you might not get anyone to believe you when you tell them how great this works!
2. Take the bottle of ammonia, your bags and rubber bands, if needed, outside. You want to do this outside because ammonia has very harsh fumes so you need good ventilation.
3. If you do not want to get all greasy I suggest that now would be a great time to don a pair of rubber gloves. It’s time to gather up those nasty grates! Bring them outside and place them inside the bag(s).
4. Pour about a 1/2 cup of ammonia into each bag. That’s all you need. It’s actually not the ammonia that is going to produce the magic here but the fumes.
5. Almost done! Close the bags securely. If large enough, you can tie the opening into a knot like I did. Or you can use rubber bands. If your grates fit into ziptop bags, perfect! Just zip them closed. It’s important to make sure that no matter how you close your bags that they are closed very tightly as it’s the fumes trapped inside the bag that are going to work wonders on the grease and grime on your grates. Now you will need to leave them there for at least 12 hours or overnight.
6. After at least 12 hours it’s time to open up the bags, pour out the ammonia and bring in the grates where a quick scrub in hot soapy water will reveal how beautifully clean and grease free they are! My grates were really bad so I did end up having to use a scraper and some elbow grease before they were clean to my satisfaction but it was way easier and they came much cleaner than any other method I had tried before.

10 Fitch InnSider Secret - Stuff Your Duvet Cover Without Breaking A Sweat! 23 Jun 2015, 5:00 am
With this simple little trick you can easily put your duvet cover back on even if there is no one around to help you.
First things first. You might be wondering what the heck is a duvet?
The duvet is stuffed into a washable, removable cover. Picture a very large pillow case with the 2 long sides and one short side sewn closed. The open end of the duvet is folded over to create a flap and usually closes with buttons or tabs that are tied. They can purchased in a variety of colors and patterns allowing you to quickly and inexpensively change the look of your bed just by replacing the cover. There's just one tiny little blemish on this otherwise perfect duvet picture- it can be a pain in the butt to get the darn cover onto the duvet!
Until recently it took two of us to stuff the duvet cover with the duvet, each of us holding a corner of the duvet and the cover and wiggling, tugging and shaking everything into it's proper place. Phew!
Then I saw this video and was tickled to have discovered a way to make this task so much easier than I ever dreamed it could be and it's really kind of cool how it works. Take a look and tell me what you think.

10 Fitch InnSider Secret - Quickly and Easily Hide Your Unsightly Router 11 Jun 2015, 4:08 pm
Cool camouflage trick makes your router disappear into the decor of your room!A month or two ago my mom finally got internet at her house. Although I know there are still many people on the planet who don't have the internet it did sort of feel like she was one of the last ones holding out. Technology is not her thing and she really didn't even get it for herself but for company when she has visitors.
Since you are reading this I'm going to assume that you are on the list of those who do have internet and because you have it you also have a router someplace in your house that sends the "magic" internet signal out into the.... uh.... air so that your computer, smartphone, tablet can... uh.... catch it. Well, I might not really understand how it works but I can tell you that it is a less than attractive box thingy with blinking lights on the front of it and antennas sticking out of it and this makes it qualify as ugly and distracting in my book. And while I can't really do anything about those antennas, I can disguise the unit itself so that it blends in with the surrounding decor. This project is very easy and quick. I don't think it took even 10 minutes. Here's what I did:
First you need to find a hardbound book that you don't mind removing the cover from. And you will need to make sure that your book cover will fit your router. The book can be larger around than your router is but it should be about the same thickness. Mine was very close to the same size as the router.
I have lot's of old books that I picked up at garage sales and such and use the pages for crafting and card making so of course I selected a volume of the correct size that had a nice, slightly decorative cover.
Then I stuck my router into the book cover with the binding facing out when the cover is closed over the top of the router and ta da! Project done!
Afterward, I also did two other things - I added some other books which I had not removed the pages from, one underneath and a small one on top, just to make the display a bit more interesting.
And because my router had a sort of vent along the top back which I could feel heat escaping from, I added a thin strip of self stick felt to the inside of the cover, just in front of where the vents are when the cover is closed.
10 Fitch Review - Heartfelt Books - a Unique, Thoughtful, Gift Idea 11 Jun 2015, 11:03 am
This uniquely personalized gift is sure to delight the receiver!
|34 years ago I married my best friend|
I knew that I wanted it to be really special and unique, different from anything I'd given him before, which is a little bit challenging when you've been married for so many years! Thank goodness for the internet! I simply did a google search for anniversary gift ideas for your husband which led to a little treasure hunt as I poked around and ended up on a blog post that a young women had done about Heartfelt Books and the very personal book that she created for her husband for their anniversary.
It sounded intriguing so I clicked through to the website for Heartfelt books to take a closer look and after clicking on the sample and reading some of the entries I decided this would be perfect!
I have to say that I really had a great time creating this special gift for my husband. As I answered each questions and created each page it made me really stop and think about the wonderful, amazing, awesome man whose wife I am, and the memories that are a result of the life that we've built through our commitment to each other over the last 34 years. This little trip down memory lane caused me to fall even more in love with my sweetheart!
The price of the books depends on the cover you choose. There are 4 options under the $59.99 price point and 2 options under the $69.99 price point. If you place your order by 1PM then your book will be shipped the same day! They also offer, for additional fees, optional professional editing service and rush shipping.
The book is simply shipped in a padded envelope with bubble-wrap around it. You don't need a box to give it as a gift, you could wrap it in tissue paper and put it in a gift bag and you are good to go! But I decided to make a box for mine and covered it with some scrapbook paper because I also wanted to include a recent photo of the two of us which I put in a frame and placed in the box on top of the book. You will find directions to make a box below.
|The book in my homemade box|
|With the photo on top|
If you want to check out Heartfelt Books click HERE and please use this source code HBCB0387 in the box as shown below when you fill out the form to get started.
Book Box Directions
|score and cut a box for your book|
Score each piece 1" in from the edge all the way around. Then notch the 4 corners where they intersect. Finally, fold up all the sides along the score lines and glue the tabs to the inside of the box.
PLEASE NOTE: The top and bottom are exactly the same size and fit snugly together. If you cover your box top with paper keep this in mind because if you wrap the paper from the top to go under the inside edge you may have trouble getting the cover to fit your bottom.
Another fabulous gift idea is a stay at our adults only, romantic escape right here in the breathtaking Finger Lakes of New York state! Better yet, why not get the book and give it to your sweetie during a stay here ay 10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn!
