FYI: Yesterday morning while waiting for my apt. elevator to take me down to the lobby I noticed some remnants of peppermint candy embedded in the carpet. Yes, ladies. It's still there. Which makes me wonder, how often do they actually vacuum the common areas?
Also, I saw on the Food Network the "proper" way to crush peppermint candies. You are supposed to double bag the candies, cover the whole thing with a dish towel and bang away at them. That prevents the candies from exploding everywhere and breaking through the plastic bags. Good to know for next time!
