    My apologies everyone as the biggie news was spoilered but I saw it anyway without wanting to. My computer is showing spoilers as bold text instead of whited out. We are trying to figure out why I have this problem of seeing spoilers as bold text.

    Yes it is safe to go back into the water

    Peeve: Crappy manufacturing. I finally decided to overcome my fear of sewing machines. I buy a Singer and it seems to work OK the first time I try it out. Then I actually set out to sew something, and the freakin' thing breaks. It's either a gear or the timing belt. I have to take the damn thing in & it's going to be 2-3 weeks until it's fixed and the authorized repair guy give me a hard time. I'm ready to chuck the whole thing in the trash and forget about it. Or sue Singer. Or both. Grrr....

    Well, here's my rant for the day. My plastic ice cube trays smelled all funny and stale, so I put them in the dishwasher. They came out smelling exactly the same! Does anyone know a way to get rid of that smell? I'm hesitant to soak them in bleach because, well, it's bleach.

    Crit--have you tried a paste of water & baking soda and letting them sit for a while?

    My hubby bought me one for Christmas several years ago. The tension has never been right on it. It's still sitting here, waiting for me to have it fixed...

    Try vinegar for the ice cube trays. Just poor some in and let it sit for awhile then wash as usual. I have a front loader wash machine and every so often it starts smelling musty and funky and I just run a cycle with vinegar...and it works!

    Or you could just try sitting them outside in the sun for a day....I've never tried it with ice cube trays, but the sun gets the smell out of a lot of stuff...smells that survive the washing machine/dryer.

    Or you could get new ice cube trays. They're cheap.
    Count your blessings!
