You’re doing it wrong: easiest way to peel an orange

The internets of the universe taught me something a few weeks back and my mind was blown….so here I am passing it onto you (unless of course you are waayyyy smarter than me and you have been doing this your whole life:). I have been peeling an orange the wrong way my whole life. I grew up using that little orange tool that has a little cutter thingy on one end and a peel tool on the other. This is soooo much easier (listen up Mom!! :) I love a good juicy orange….Probably eat about 4-5 a week….this time of year they are so good:) easiest way to peel and orange @cleverlyinspired (3)

DIY shoe cleaner (how to remove scuff marks on converse)

Hey hey! Happy Monday friends….hope you had a restful weekend. We have been taking Stella to the dogparks in town and she has been loving it! We have neighborhood dog parks where we live but it is hard to catch a good time when there are other dogs playing…and she loveesss to play:)

Okay, so did you all know this little trick and not tell me? I found this on Pinterest and then could not find the source. It basically showed somebody removing smudge marks from the toe and side area of Converse shoes with nail polish remover. I’m in love with my white Converse because they look good with everything even a nice little sundress and I they look so much better when they are clean. The white ones obviously get dirty pretty easily and I’ve had some success with washing them in OxiClean and letting them dry in the sunshine. But the smudges on the plastic areas was not coming off. This little trick took me 5 minutes and made the converse sparkly white again.

Brightest Recessed lighting for Kitchen

I don’t know if it’s something that I notice because I work in the kitchen the most or if it’s just something that women in general notice more than men…. but in my house I tend to notice how bright a room is a little bit more than my husband. The yellow cast of light in our kitchen was annoying to me. I’m sure when these recessed lights were installed the electrician just put in cheapest light bulbs that were available. So I went on a little bit of research and ended up finding a really good deal on some LCD recessed lighting from Amazon. This light bulb had really good reviews and it was priced very well in comparison to the big home improvement stores. I decided to take a leap of faith and test out some for our kitchen.

How to Unclog a Toilet (video)

Hey yall! I am in the middle of a little site update….wanted to change the look up a bit. Things may look a little wonky for a few days while I reconfigure. Let me know what you think….trying to make it a bit clearer and easier to navigate. Would love to hear your thoughts….

This is a conversation that is really fairly dirty. If you don’t have toilet clogging issues….you may just want to move on and enjoy your day….otherwise…stick around because I’m about to save you millions in plumbing cost (ok, close…) And to be quite honest I’m really not even sure it fits with the mission of my blog. It is really not clever nor is it inspiring….but like I said…. it has saved me oodles and oodles and oodles of money in plumber cost so I wanted to share it with you….how to unclog a toilet @cleverlyinspired
