Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

Tuesday Tip

Bounce is a wonderful fabric softner, but did you know there are many other uses for this product? Try some of these ...

  • It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.
  • It also repels mice ... spread some sheets around the foundation areas of your home.
  • In cars that are just sitting, leave some sheets around the interior, they will keep mice from entering your vehicle.
  • It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don't get opened too often.
  • Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season, it will repel them!
  • To eliminate static electricity from your television or computer screen, wipe the screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.
  • To dissolve soap scum from shower doors, clean then with a sheet of Bounce.
  • Freshen the air in your home by placing an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang one in the closet.
  • To keep your vacuum cleaner smelling fresh, put a Bounce sheet in it.
  • Prevent thread from tangling ... run a threaded needle through sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.
  • To keep suitcases from smelling musty, place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing it.
  • Freshen the air in your car by placing a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.
  • Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The anti-static agent apparently weakens the bond between the food.
  • Eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket.
  • Remove animal hair from furniture or clothes by rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce. It will magnetically attract all the loose hairs.
  • Eliminate static electricity from mini blinds. Wipe them with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.
  • Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.
  • Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.
  • Deodorize shoes or sneakers by placing a Bounce sheet in your shoes or sneakers overnight.
  • Golfers put a Bounce sheet in your back pocket to keep the bees away.
  • Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before folding and storing them, it will keep them smelling fresh.
  • Rainy day cure for dog odor ... The next time your dog comes in from the rain, simply wipe him down with a Bounce sheet. Instantly your dog smell springtime fresh.
