No I have never heard of that. That is a very interesting idea. What kind of herbs work best? Does it work as well as the nylon at attracting the fat?

Resent

I resent having to clean my oven. Does anyone have easy way of doing it? I have read many Heloise, Helpful Kitchen Tips, etc. all of them do not help in the overwhelming feeling of getting started and doing it. How many times year do you clean yours? It seems I wind up with more of the cleaning solution on me than the oven. I do wish I could throw it all in the sink and really scour. I don't know what I would do without it but cleaning it bothers me. Just like a child, I don't want to do it. I was advised to get self cleaning. Since I wanted 36" stove w/gas didn't come with self cleaning. Only make 30" stoves now. Just wonder why they are making stoves smaller now. Guess everyone likes to go out and eat. I know I would.

Fat Mop?

GB:

I've never used a fat mop. I think I get the concept but how much fat does it hold and how do yo unload it so you can reload it?

It holds quite a lot of fat actually. It is great for light to medium de-fatting jobs. I have used it for heavier jobs where I did need to unload it, but it is not ideal for that obviously. As a tool I love it, but just can't stand cleaning it.

Mine is my pasta maker. What a picky job it is to clean.

Amen on everything in the kitchen middie but I think my worst enemy in the kitchen would have to be one of those indoor grills. They are a pain in the *** to clean.

I wish I was back in Korea and had my house girl...she only cam 3 days a week @ $0.40 per day...of course that was back in "63-64"

The only thing she did wrong was starch DH's Chief's uniform..he had them made in Japan and they were white shark skin lined with slipper satin to the knees. He said they were hard to keep up, kept sliding down. At inspection one morning the skipper checked him out, looked at all his ribbons and medels (some were earned in the Marine corps when he was with them.) Then he said "Chief, you look good but the Chief can't look better than his Commanding Officer. It wasn't long before he was wearing silk sharkskin whites. They are usually made of cotton.

Marge, could have been worse. At $0.40 per day (these days), lucky if your shorts aren't starched.

Remember verticle blinds? I would clean them one by one. My dearest (now departed) best friend, always had a solution. She threw hers in the jacuzzi! I miss her.
