    Dear SS

    Ok.. I understand now.

    I'll just scent the balls. That way I will have a fluffy comforter that smells of Lavender.

    i wish we could all be sitting at the table drinking coffee, tea or whatever with Sylvia Snowbird. Maybe one day she will stop by unexpectedly and join us with her unique alabamian charm.

    Wouldn't that be wonderful, Miss Drew!

    Hope is what keeps us going.

    I'm enjoying my second now as I look out through large picture glass windows at the now placid lake (it had been churning and roiling from a huge rain storm). My holiday stay at the lakeside villa has been lovely . . .

    Going home shortly. . . .

    Well, with all this talk of gas and electric ranges and my obsession with how to clean them, I only now came up with this -- and you already knew it:

    I was having a problem removing streaks from the black enameled top of the SAMSUNG shown below. My problem was that I couldn't sufficiently expunge (with a sponge!!!) the residue from the dish soap I was using. Should know that it and the residue left behind in tea towels -- for drying -- cannot be easily wiped away.

    I had a gallon of white vinegar at hand, so, I moistened a few wet paper towels with the vinegar, swabbed the stove's deck, and wiped it all up, streak-free, mind you, with a clutch of PTs.

    VOILA' -- no more streaks. Therefore, I retract what I wrote earlier about not having CORNING glass tops, et al., because my ignorance was showing.

    So obvious, the wonders of white vinegar!

    Lol - I like the glass top cleaner, you rub it on and then wipe it off with a dry cloth, and everything is perfect. Also the glass cleaner that comes in the black spray can is amazing. I can clean anything without streaks with that stuff.

    Thanks, just fine!

    I hope your all-singing, all-dancing cucina moderna is coming along as planned. Yes, that recommended cleaner does work, and very well. Me, I try the basics, particularly when the client does not have what you described. I should know by now, but I keep experimenting and . . .

    My biggest gripe is when someone -- owner OR house cleaner -- uses abrasive pads and such.
