I "discovered" an effective way of cleaning my stainless steel appliances (who in their right mind decided SS ovens, refrigerators and dishwashers look good in a kitchen). I used vinegar with warm water and used a cloth over the appliances. Vinegar isn't a new regime in my homemade cleaning supplies, but I wasn't sure how it would react with stainless steel, but I am pleased to report my appliances sparkle (until grubby fingers get all over them again). For the stubborn stains I used a mixture of biacarb of soda and warm water, and with a soft cloth I rubbed in a circular motion and then cleaned off with the vinegar and water spray.

Here is the third month of working through Jacey's "Spin Art" book here and and this month's fibre is TORNADO. I used Ocean Blue Merino from Kathy's fibres here (I find her dyed merino is the most competitively priced fibre around). I wrapped the fibre with commercial angora/boucle and two other commercial threads (one glittery). I quite like the end result and because I have spun 100gm, there will be enough to make either a hat or put it towards my handspun circle vest I am currently making.
