EXTENSION EDUCATORS Susan L. Peterson CFS County Extension Director

Dear Extension Homemaker, It has been a busy summer! A huge thank you to the board and each of you for all your hard work during the fair. The days were long and hot, but appreciated by so many. The number of positive comments we received about the food and exhibits was amazing (Friday night chicken and noodles have become a tradition for many families). As we enter into our new year, we encourage your participation in programs (the September lessons were well attended—THANKS!) and hope you will involve others in your Extension Homemaker Club! As many of you already know, Sue Morse has come back to work with us part-time. She is helping with the Holiday Ideas program book and working with various committees. We soon hope to introduce you to our new CFS Program Assistant, Lisa Cangany. Lisa will be starting work on October 30th. She looks forward to meeting you at Holiday Ideas. Your board has many exciting goals for the year — get involved. Happy Fall!!!

Stain Removal
Are your kids in fall sports? Are you finding fall gardening to be messy? You might find it hard to get the stains out of clothing. Here is a guide from the Soap and Detergent Association to help you remove these stains. Grass: Pretreat or presoak using a liquid laundry detergent or prewash stain remover. Then launder in the hottest water that’s safe for the fabric. If the stain persists, launder again using chlorine or oxygen bleach — whichever is safe for the fabric. Mud and Dirt: Let the mud dry completely and brush off as much as possible. Pretreat with liquid laundry detergent, a liquid detergent booster or a paste of powder detergent and water. Launder. For heavy stains, pretreat or presoak with a detergent or a presoak product before laundering, using the hottest water that’s safe for the fabric. Pollen: Gently shake the item to remove as much pollen as you can, then use the sticky side of a piece of tape to lift off the rest. Pretreat with a prewash stain remover. Launder using chlorine or oxygen bleach.

Tips For Safe Online Shopping
* * * * * * * Know the person or business you are dealing with. Know what you are buying and how much it costs. Make sure your transaction is secure. Understand your payment options. Understand the seller’s policies. Keep a record of your purchase. Protect your privacy.



This & That (Continued)

Are You Ready? — Assembling a Basic Disaster Supplies Kit
The following items are recommended for inclusion in your basic disaster supplies kit: * * * * * * * * * * * * Three-day supply of non-perishable food. Three-day supply of water—one gallon of water per person, per day. Portable, battery-powered radio or television and extra batteries. First aid kit and manual. Sanitation and hygiene items (moist towellettes and toilet paper). Matches and waterproof container. Whistle. Extra Clothing. Kitchen accessories and cooking utensils, including a can opener. Photocopies of credit and identification cards. Cash and coins. Special needs items, such as prescription medications, eye glasses, contact lens solutions, and hearing aid batteries. Items for infants, such as formula, diapers, bottles, and pacifiers. Other items to meet your unique family needs. Maintaining Your Disaster Supplies Kit Just as important as putting your supplies together is maintaining them so they are safe to use when needed. Here are some tips to keep your supplies ready and in good condition: * * Keep canned foods in a dry place where the temperature is cool. Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic or metal containers to protect from pests and to extend its shelf life. Throw out any canned good that becomes swollen, dented, or corroded. Use foods before they go bad, and replace them with fresh supplies. Place new items at the back of the storage area and older ones in the front. Change stored food and water supplies every six months. Be sure to write the date you store it on all containers. Re-think your needs every year and update your kit as your family needs change. Keep items in airtight plastic bags and put your entire disaster supplies kit in one or two easy-to-carry containers, such as an unused trashcan, camping backpack, or duffel bag.

* * * *

* *

* *

If you live in a cold climate, you must think about warmth. It is possible that you will not have heat. Think about your clothing and bedding supplies. Be sure to include one complete change of clothing and shoes per person, including: * * * * * * Jacket or coat. Long pants. Long sleeve shirt. Sturdy shoes. Hat, mittens, and scarf. Sleeping bag or warm blanket (per person).

Be sure to account for growing children and other family changes. You may want to add some of the items listed to your basic disaster supplies kit depending on the specific needs of your family.

Fair Kitchen Report
The profit from the 2006 4-H Fair is $4,116.70. This is $2754.07 less than last year. There are several reasons. Because of the lack of volunteers, we gave up the pre-fair. In doing this, we also gave up some income. We were very short on volunteers the entire fair. The girls that work for us did a terrific job and filled in wherever needed. They arrived at 7:00 a.m. and didn’t leave until 8:30—9:00 p.m. (whenever we were finished). Because of this, they were given a bonus. We DO want them back next year. Clean-up day—there were only 2 homemakers there. Our 4 girls are paid $50.00 extra for this day and they did earn their money that day. This is our only money making project and we do need to support it.
