Friday Tip!

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! I just discovered I missed noting my 200th Friday Tip, so let’s celebrate magical number 203! Here’s it is!

If you spill beads or rhinestones on carpet, put a old stocking over the end of the hose attachment on your vacuum cleaner and suck them back to safety.

Spilling your sparklies is no fun at all, but it happens. If your workspace has a hard floor, you can easily sweep them up, but carpet pile traps your tiny shiny things. No one wants to pick them up one by one. Fortunately, it’s easy to rescue them!

Secure the stocking foot over the hose with a rubber band. Don’t stretch it too tight; you actually want a little of the stocking to get sucked inside the hose to make a cup. Then start vacuuming. Before turning the power off, turn the end of the hose up, so the rhinestones don’t fall out once the suction is cut off. Then turn the hose down over a container and the stray stones will fall out. Repeat until you’ve gotten all the little buggers out of the carpet.

And that’s why they call me The Martha Stewart of Burlesque.
