“When in the laundry, we use white chalk to mark those tough stains that you find on white shirts (pilot shirt are the worst!) around the collar as the powder helps absorb the oils and make the stain disappear in the wash.”

Second place is M/Y Step One.

“To keep hydrangeas fresh longer, take them out of the vase and place them head-first (stem out of the water), fully submerged for about 2-3 hours in cold water. It revives them.”

Third place is M/Y Namoh and Stew Joanne Hill.

“To create a lit ice sculpture, add water to a balloon, freeze until the core is hard but you can still hear water in the middle. Pop the balloon and crack a hole. Drain the water and add led lights to the globe. Place upside down covering your hole onto a centerpiece. Your will be talking about it all week.”
