I just love playing with chalk and I love giving chalk to my grandkids and making all kinds of drawings and games with them. Good clean fun! It was always something that I used outside the house…….now I find out that there are other uses for chalk inside the house.
Remove stains Mark ring-around-the-collar stains heavily with chalk before washing. The dust helps absorb the oils, making the stain easier to clean.
Stop tarnish Wrap chalk in cheesecloth and store with silverware. It absorbs moisture and helps prevent tarnishing.
Steady a screwdriver Rub chalk over the handle of a screwdriver to prevent slipping.
Keep ants out If ants are coming into your house, draw chalk lines around their entry points. Many chalks contain calcium carbonate, which ants don’t like.
Hide cracks Cover hairline cracks in walls until you’re ready to paint by rubbing over them with a matching color
“Rolling Thunder” a non-profit group that celebrates Memorial Weekend in a special way. This group has one misson and that is to publicize Prisoner Of War (POW) Missing in Action(MIA) issues. The left behind soldier, the warrior who never returned to his/her homeland.
A group of Vietnam Veterans began a quest to get the government and the media to pay attention to the POW-MIA concerns. The group joined forces in 1987. They’ve rolled into Washington, D.C. every year since making their concerns known.
Their method of transporation was the interesting part they ride in on motorcycles.
The motorcycle brigade have continued to roll into D.C. every Memorial Day weekend since. Not because it is a three day weekend, or because they will all gather to have a reunion of sorts. No, they roll for a purpose, to remind us all that “out of sight is not out of mind.”
This “Ride for Freedom” will continue until all our POW-MIAs are accounted for.
