decluttering blog My family knows that it's easier for me to "preach" tidiness than it is to live it out in daily life.
There would have been even more to stuff into my car this morning if I hadn't been taking my juice and detergent bottles to one of my high schools for a special project. I've been trying to provide opportunities for students to practice pre-vocational tasks that will help them with grasp strength, work hardening, sequencing and organization. Today was the day to prepare the saved-up bottles for use next year.
|Fill clean bottles with water, then add a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Using a little white vinegar might keep the water fresh for a few weeks or longer. Leave a few inches of airspace at the top.|
|Apply a ring of hot glue around the inside of the cap, where the threads of the bottle will connect with the cap. This will slow down a student opening the bottle but don't count on it preventing spills.|
