Cleaning Is Over, I'm Back!

Yes, I'm Done! Well as much as I'm planning to do.  Did you get a chance to check out my post on cleaning pots. It's here don't miss it! Some of you were inquiring about the method.
 I'll be going out to hunt for some treasures tomorrow. I want to find more white pieces so, here I am again shopping for certain pieces. Well, if I don't find them, I'll no doubt see something else I might fancy.
 Don't forget to check out my secound blog to see how I've planted my veggie garden. My Azaleas are so full of blooms, I took some pics, but will take more when they are all in full bloom. Enjoy!







The Spireas are huge! Mom refuses to cut them! I'm going to leave them just the way she wants them even though she doesn't live here anymore! As you can see, tall pines are everywhere in the yard, and really need to come down, but...you guessed it...Mom!
 I've taken pics from different azaleas, so you are looking at different types. The pink and white ones will be ready next week. The camellias didn't do well this year. I think it was because of the very cold weather we experienced. Again Enjo,y and in case you don't hear from me again, have a happy and safe weekend! Luv-Loretta

Hello Everyone. This is a Tutorial

Yeah, you guessed it! Some wanted to know how I cleaned my pots. I'm cleaning in the kitchen now, and thought I'd stop to demonstrate this chore. Thanks to my husband, who can mess up a pot quicker than the blink of an eye, I have one that needs my attention. I don't know what he's doing to muck it up this way, but I'm going to find out! lol
  I start out with protecting my tabletop. This one was built with a special wood, from the floor up by a carpenter in Florida, and I have not been able to find him. My Mom will pay well to have one like it!
Sorry, I do tend to digress lol. Follow the pictures and you'll find with a bit of elbow grease, you'll have it done in no time!
The cleaners
The scouring pads. The first ones are nylon mesh, The square ones, scouring pads and the ones I love, and the copper ones are for scrubbing
This is how the pot was inside
And this is how it looked outside
The pot sprayed with oven cleaner and soaked 15-20 minutes
                                      
I tested by wiping with a paper towel
Then scrubbed with the yellow pad in the picture
And at the end of soaking, the goop wipes off easily, then I scrubbed the rest
                                      
With a little more scrubbing inside and into the crevices
Down to the bottom of the pot, it is finally clean in and out!
