I have TWO pins to show you today! Here's the first one:

I think I've said before that I'm not a very good housekeeper. I want my house to be clean, but I'm just not very good at it. Yet another reason why I need a cleaning service.
One of the grossest areas in our house is the oven, because even when it's clean, it's not really clean. Observe:

after I had cleaned the round burner covers.
That's as clean as it gets, folks.
So, I thought I give this pin a shot. It says to seal your grate in a ziplock bag with a quarter cup of ammonia and leave it overnight. You wake up in the morning, wipe your grate off, and it looks brand new.
My grates are not small like the pin, so I couldn't do the ziplock bag thing, but I did try it with the little round thingies that go in the middle of the burners:
Yes, I left it outside, and thank goodness I did, because the bag leaked at some point. Let me tell you: ammonia is just about the grossest smell ever. But check it out:
The angels started singing. I became an ammonia convert, and instantly started looking for a bag big enough for my grates.
Here's a close up of how they looked before:
I put them in a kitchen garbage bag, which started leaking immediately. Son of a! Luckily, I used the last of the dog food that morning, so I had a larger bag that I could use:

Here's what they looked like at the end of the day:
And the close up:
Success! Well, at least it's better. I still couldn't get the corners, as you can see. I might try again and see if I can get some more off, and maybe use some kind of get-into-all-the-crevices cleaning tool.
The second pin is maybe a little bit of a cheat, since I didn't find it on Pinterest. But I did pin it after I saw it, so I feel that counts! It actually came from Sarah, who hosts The Proof is in the Pin. She made these adorable Valentines:

I could totally do that.
Problem #1: Those packs of bubbles at Target come in packs of 24. There are 29 kids in BK's class.
Problem #2: My printer is clearly not as nice Sarah's.
But I am undeterred by such trivialities, and I powered through. Even Bug helped.
Here's the finished projected. It'll do:
What have you been up to this month?
