How to get sharpie marker off your skin, the fastest and easiest way to get Sharpie marker off your child #Sharpie, #DIY, #ParentingTipsSOMEONE found the sharpie maker…. Does he look guilty? ūüôā

All you need is:

Rubbing alcohol, a cloth and a child who found a sharpie (of course your perfect child would never do such a thing, so barrow the neighbor kid)

IF you are a parent and IF you have a sharpie marker in your house even if it is up high and hidden…. without fail ONE DAY your child WILL find it. ¬†It is like trying to hide fresh meat from a bear, they will sniff it out, animal instincts kick in and they will grab the prize when you least expect it. ¬†Oh and all you “non parents” or “new parents” with perfect children. Go right on ahead an judge all of us…. “if you only kept a better eye on your children, or MY child would never do such a thing “. ¬†Well just you wait because the day will come, takes all of 3o seconds, your child finds a sharpie marker once they pop the cap off, it is like an unseen ¬†force comes over them and the NEED to “tat” themselves out with sharpie tattoos is just to strong.

As a Mother of 4 (soon to be 5 anyday) I have been on this “sharpie self expression body art” one to many times. ¬†My first born just got scrubbed raw with a wash cloth and soap in an effort to get it off. ¬†I have tried all kinds of things… till one day I found the MAGIC solution. ¬†My Uncle who sells furniture told me that if I get permanent ink on my couch to use rubbing alcohol to get it out. ¬†WELL my child in not a sofa…. but if I can use rubbing alcohol to clean a cut I might as well try it. ¬†Sure enough it worked like magic, couple wipes ¬†and it is GONE. No sore arms, no scrubbing…. AMAZING!

I have found the FASTER you use the alcohol the better it works.  The longer the sharpie sits on the skin the harder it is to get off.

I hope you find this tip helpful, feel free to PIN it or share!

Easy, Thrifty Lego Storage

It started out innocently enough, kids love legos, so a bucket of them seemed like the perfect gift idea.  Then they requested sets for other holidays and birthdays.  Before I knew it we had a small tote full.  So full that rummaging through them was next to impossible and playing with them was a chore instead of a creative, fun time!

I researched different ways to store them, and while I loved some of them, they weren’t practical or thrifty! ¬†I decided on plan b; get some empty plastic shoe boxes and let each color have it’s own box. ¬†So far it has worked great! ¬†All 3 of my kids have spent a couple of hours on the floor creating various masterpieces. ¬†So much better than asking to watch tv or play a video game!

I started with 10 boxes to be safe. ¬†I had one for each color. ¬†As I finished organizing them, I discovered that there weren’t enough of some of the colors to need their own box. ¬†I ended up mixing the blue and purple and the yellow, red and orange. ¬†Apparently we have an over abundance of grey and we may have to divide it in half (thanks to the obsession for the Star Wars sets).

I admit that I enjoyed it at first, I have a thing for organizing and with a family haven’t been able to keep things the way I would’ve in the past. ¬†So this gave me a chance to rekindle that obsession,¬†hobby. ¬†If you don’t enjoy that type of thing, or even if you do, what a great way to spend some time with your kids while you let them help divide the colors into their boxes! ¬†Finish up by labeling your boxes so that they are easy to see which one you need. ¬†I cut labels out of vinyl in a Lego brix font I believe I got from dafont.com. ¬†You could easily do it in different colors of vinyl to match the color in the box, or even in the coordinating color of permanent marker.

Love this Instant pot but it can be a little tricky at times.  I found a great trip worth passing along. An Easy way to clean the rim of your Instant Pot electric pressure cooker!

Easy way to clean the rim of your Instant Pot electric pressure cooker

I absolutely love my Instant pot pressure cooker. It is by far my favorite kitchen appliance or gadget! I love how fast it cooks meals and that it doesn’t heat up my house. I love that the food seems to always come out perfect and that it is a lot easier to use than I thought it might be.

There is just one thing I didn’t like about it until recently. The rim around the top where the lid goes on. I could not get it clean enough. I felt like there were drips and crumbs that weren’t getting wiped off thoroughly. Until I figured this trick out!

Those little, spongy paint brushes are the perfect size and perfect for getting into that hard to reach groove. I dip the brush into my hot soapy water and go around the rim a couple of times. It is the perfect answer!
