PSA ::. Remove washed-in sticker residue

I'm sure many of you know this fact... but I JUST RECENTLY came across this awesome tidbit of information.

I have 3 girls under 6 and wouldn't you know they love stickers. They get them everywhere - home, the grocery, the dentist, the doctor, etc and since I don't really look at each piece of clothing before it heads into the washing machine (sorry Mom, yes you taught me better than this) and into the dryer I have ended up with SEVERAL shirts with this sticky residue that does not come off no matter how much I pick at it. They were ruined... or so I thought!

Finally, (probably should have done this sooner) I went to google and searched, "How to get rid of washed on sticker residue from clothes". Wouldn't you know I came up with an actual result (here).

So for those of you who haven't done that google search yet and figured out how to remove the sticker residue... here is my PSA for the day!

1. Take sticker residued clothing
2. Spray with Goo Gone
3. Use old toothbrush to brush away residue (it comes off very easy)
4. Tada - residue is gone, but Goo Gone is on shirt
{wash and dry shirt as usual}
5. Sticker residue free shirt!

This was my dear daughters actual shirt and I did a little happy dance when it came out of the dryer sticker free!

{Pinned there, Done that} Crash Hot Potatoes

I saw this pin from The Pioneer Woman the other day and decided to go out on a limb and try something new as a side. It did NOT disappoint. I was running short on time and did not boil them long enough, so be careful about that... but they were still yummy!

These were so yummy and crispy -- everyone loved them.

Crash Hot Potatoes
src: The Pioneer Woman
Ingredients
12 whole New Potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes)
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
 Kosher Salt To Taste
 Black Pepper To Taste
 Rosemary (or Other Herbs Of Choice) To Taste

Preparation Instructions
1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make and cook them until they are fork-tender.
2. On a sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil. Place tender potatoes on the cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each potato.
3. With a potato masher, gently press down each potato until it slightly mashes, rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again. Brush the tops of each crushed potato generously with more olive oil.
4. Sprinkle potatoes with kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper and fresh chopped rosemary (or chives or thyme or whatever herb you have available.)
5. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
