University Day TOMORROW

UNIVERSITY DAY!

 

One of the best parts about living in Eugene is the community spirit. Every one cares about their neighbor—it’s part of the fabric of our city.

There’s no difference at the University. Students work hard to live in harmony. Taking care of the college is a group effort. Want to get involved?

When: Thursday, May 18 at 8:30am to 4:00pm

Where: Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Across from EMU Amphitheater at Collier Lawn (Corner of 13th Avenue and University Street)
1395 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403

Volunteer on University Day to help make the UofO campus beautiful!

“University Day is a campus-wide beautification event that takes place each spring. Hundreds of students, staff, and faculty gather together to plant flowers, spread bark dust, and enjoy live entertainment provided by campus groups. We also invite community members to join us! The tradition dates back to 1904 as part of Junior Weekend, when projects included things such as laying the walk to Deady, followed by a feast. It has always been a spirited event to prepare the University grounds for commencement ceremonies, and even though it has greatly evolved since 1904, our roots still lie in campus spirit and community service.

Any student, staff, faculty, alumni, or community member is welcome to participate. There is no pre-registration required, simply join us at Collier Lawn (on the corner of 13th Avenue and University Street, just west of the EMU Amphitheater) between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to participate. Volunteers will be assigned to a section of campus to plant flowers, weed flower beds, spread bark dust, clean up litter, etc. Committing one hour of your time will earn you an exclusive free University Day t-shirt.” – from the website

What to PLANT in May

Ready for gardening? It’s nearly time to get knee-deep in vegetables. You may have already gotten off to a good start by starting some plants indoors. But when and what should go in the dirt in May?

Here’s a quick rundown:

At the beginning of May (preferably the first week) plan on transplanting or starting all Parsley, Broccoli, Cabbage, and Cauliflower. In the last week of May, plan to start your Tomatoes, Bail, Marigolds, Pumpkins, and Winter Squash.

Now, the question is, how do you keep it all growing healthy? Take another sip of coffee…and save your coffee grounds!

• Add coffee grounds to your composting bin

• Spread coffee grounds around your plants to protect from snails and slugs—and cats!

• 2 cups of coffee grounds and 5 gallons of water makes a great homemade fertilizer. Steep used coffee grounds in the water overnight for best results.

• Add coffee grounds to your mulch to control weeds

• Coffee grounds also draw earthworms to your garden, which help turn the soil.

 

Got any other hot coffee tips? Send us a note!

Many of our customers keep summer gardening tools at Storitall. We are located downtown, in close proximity to local community gardens, and proud supporters of Eugene’s outdoor lifestyle.

Mold Removal Tips

Storitall is a very special storage facility—maintaining a consistent climate indoors for all our storage units. We strive to exceed our customers expectations!

Not every storage facility is the same. Not even your garage can compare to a secured, climate controlled facility.

Mold is easily grown in humidity and any kind of dampness (whether due to leaks or condensation). If you’ve stored your memories, clothing or home goods in a damp location—you may encounter mold. Here’s a guide to how to clean it up.

CLOTHING FABRICS (not including leather or silk)

Add a cup of vinegar to your washing machine load. Wash on HOT. Hang clothing to dry IN SUNLIGHT (Isn’t nature awesome?). That’s it!

 

COTTON / LINEN CURTAINS

Curtains can pose a special challenge because they often show staining so readily. After washing with the detergent vinegar mix, treat stains by creating a paste of lemon and salt. Spread over the stain and let sit for thirty minutes before rinsing with cool water. Wash again with hot water, regular detergent and a cup of vinegar. Hang dry.

 

TENTS and CAMPING GEAR

Clean the camping gear / tent with warm soapy water and a sponge. Then, fill your bathtub with a mixture of technical fabric cleaner and water. Soak for twenty to thirty minutes. Remove the tent and move to a sunny location. Allow tent to dry halfway, then move to the shade and scrub any remaining mildew stains with a paste of lime juice, salt and water. When the tent is completely 100% dry, reapply waterproofing. Store in a clean, dry location. How about Storitall????

 

Hope to see you soon!

BUGS BE GONE!

It’s Spring, and the bugs are out!  We’ve compiled this neat little guide on how to rid your home of some of the most irritating bugs. You don’t really have to reach for the chemicals—you might have everything you need already!

ANTS

Mix 1/2 cup of sugar with 1 cup of warm water. Add 2 full tablespoons of Borax. Soak a sponge or cotton pad in the mixture and leave out for the ants. It may take up to a week, but  you’ll see a massive reduction in ant infestation afterwards!

Another solution: Mix Peppermint oil with distilled water and spray corners and entry points. Ants hate Peppermint and will avoid the area.

FRUIT FLIES

Use a small bowl of apple cider vinegar mixed with liquid dish soap. The fruit flies will be very attracted to the apple cider vinegar, but become trapped in the bowl thanks to the dish soap breaking down the surface tension. Problem solved!

 

SPIDERS

Mix 1/4 cup soap with 2 gallons of water. Spray the exterior of your home and all surrounding bushes with a pump sprayer.

 

MOSQUITOES

Time to break out your essential oil collection! Use 15 drops of Lavendar oil, plus 3-4 teaspoons of vanilla extract and 1/4 cup of lemon juice. Smells great and works wonders!

 

Try these tips out and let us know how it goes. We’re also interested in learning what natural remedies work for you!

Fall Yardwork

Summer gardening may be over, but now is no time to put away all of your gardening tools. It’s time for Fall Yardwork!

We thought we’d share some Leaf Raking tips from the pros, as you prepare your yard for winter.

1. Not all leaves need to be picked up. Some can be mowed and mulched into your grass. One good pass should be enough to feed your lawn.

2. Use leaves as mulch for your flowerbeds.

3. Try using a sheet or tarp to collect the fallen leaves. Wheelbarrows typically can’t hold the volume you’ll need to remove in a leafy yard.

4. Wear a dust-mask. Believe it or not, raking leaves can really pump up your allergies!

5. It may go without saying, but always rake downhill. It’s just easier!

 

And remember to store your tools and extras at StoritAll — Eugene’s finest indoor storage facility with drive-in bays and a cargo elevator for all your heavy things.

We make storage EASY.
