    Well, apparently my children have found a couple of new ways to use lemon scented starch..I needed to starch some fabric, went looking for it..and could not find it..So, I asked my children..and lo and behold, my youngest son had it..Asked him why and he said, "it makes my clothes smell good"..Come to find out, they are also using it as a room freshener..They like the lemon smell..Guess, I am going to have to switch my starch :lol: ..There is nothing wrong with the way their clothes smell or their rooms..they just like the way the starch smells..Never thought I would have to hide my starch..Knew I had to hide my scissors, but never my starch :lol:

    You also have to watch the basketball players. Starch on the bottom of the shoes helps prevent the skid on sudden stops.

    Get them some Lemon Pledge, but explain to them that it can only be used on furniture, and the smell REALLY comes out if they rub it into the wood really well :).

    Also, make sure they know it can be used in ANY room in the house!!!

    Do have pledge but they found out that rubbing that little strip of cloth with the pledge on it..requires work..So much easier to just lounge around smelling lemon fresh :lol: ..Just joking, they actually do help around the house :wink: (for the most part)
