And GFG! is back on break …

And not a Ross/Rachel kind of break.

Earlier this week I wrote about how I needed to take a break from the blog to focus on packing and the impending move.

I posted a farewell post yesterday and am now back on break.

Have to get a few last minute things done before the movers arrive in a few hours.

I promise once we are set up in our new place in Portland I will be back with regular posts of my new adventures.

So don’t be a stranger. Feel free to peruse the blog and find many past posts for your reading enjoyment.

And if you want to read the top two posts on GFG! …

Almost every day multiple people read about removing toothpaste from clothing. (Thanks to Monica P. for asking that. It’s my top post. I regularly check my stats to see what people are reading and looking for.)

The second most read post asks, should you drink alcohol when you are sick? Because that one was so popular I reposted it the last time I was sick.

You can also find me on Facebook: personal page and GFG! page. And you can find GFG! on Twitter.

I will … Continue reading

GFG! is taking a break …

And not a Ross/Rachel kind of break.

As GFG! and The Husband get ready for the big move this week I need to focus on the last bit of packing and all that comes with it … including the stress and OMG! Am I going to run out of time before Thursday arrives? UGH!

There will be one farewell post (likely posted on Wednesday) before we jump into the Subaru and drive up I-5.

And I promise once we are set up in our new place in Portland I will be back with regular posts of my new adventures.

Removing toothpaste from clothing

My girlfriend Monica recently asked me if I knew how to get toothpaste out of clothing.

Don’t you hate when you are dressed and you brush your teeth and you get a spot of toothpaste on your top? You rub and rub and it doesn’t come off.

This is definitely frustrating. And either you don’t want to change, you don’t have time or you have to change your item of clothing. And who wants to do that? Especially if you have the perfect outfit on.

According to the website How to Clean Stuff, many toothpastes contain titanium dioxide powder which is what makes them white. When it gets on clothing, it is impossible to dissolve without the presence of a detergent.

The site gives step by step instructions on how to successfully remove the toothpaste stain. Essentially you take a damp cloth and rub it on the spot, mix a few drops of laundry detergent in water, dip the cloth into the sudsy water and rub into the spot. Once the detergent penetrates the toothpaste stain, it should release and be removed.

If the piece of clothing is dry clean only, the above method should not be used as the … Continue reading
