I just bought a bottle of commercial Zep "All Around" at Home Depot, but haven't tried it yet.
I've been getting something called ProForce Bathroom and Tile Cleaner at my local Sam's Club. However, I just noticed that it seems to be available only online now. Doesn't matter to me. I would crawl over broken glass to get the stuff.

I also forgot to mention that I use it to remove all tea and coffee stains from my tea pitchers/pots and coffee servers. I just spray a little in each container and, within seconds, I can rinse out even the toughest stains. My tea pitchers look just like new now.

Since I don't know what test you're having done----and I don't need to know---just a word about fasting for a lipid (cholesterol) panel, a very common test for a lot of people:

Fasting isn't always needed for that screening test.

I am still really sore and will be for a few days but had a great sleep in my recliner where I couldn't roll or move much.

Andy, my Dad had to go for fasting blood tests every 3 months. I used to drive him right when the clinic would open at 7:30 am and then we would go to A&W for sausage and eggers, hash browns and orange juice. It always tasted so good on those occasions.

Just got done making some rhubarb jam. It's so good as a spread on bread and butter and it is also good as an ice cream topping.

Laurie, I've been doing this for years. At first it was every three months but has extended out to 6. It's really insignificant, a minor annoyance. I skipped dessert last night and juice with my morning pills. Came home and had breakfast as usual.

JoAnn, what did you do to get yours to gel? I've made 2 batches, one with pectin and one with orange, and both turned out to be sauce. I've been making it for years, and I don't know if this was a particularily "wet" batch of rhubarb as it always gelled in the past.

I use a package of strawberry jello. You could also use cherry or raspberry.

When I make jam, I cook it until it passes the "jam test". I pour a little bit on a cold plate. I hold the plate vertically and let the jam drip. Then I turn the plate, still vertically, 90 and if it doesn't drip again, it's done.

I have never made rhubarb jam.
