Tid Bits

Last week I got some good ideas and tips on "cleaning your whistle".
I felt this would be a good topic along with others to conduct at
an association meeting.
So, what I am looking for are ideas and suggestions other officials
use in "cleaning and keeping a striped shirt look clean, whites are
white, blacks are black....Keeping a jacket neat and clean, keeping
out the wrinkles, not allowing a patch to shrivel during washing/
drying . Care of shoes, keeping clean and polished, sanitised.
Thanks for the help

I always roll my pants and shirt up [seperately] and that seems to avoid wrinkles, even when carrying them in a backpack with shoes and other odds/ends crammed in.

I use mouth wash to clean my whistles. I don’t use high heat when I dry my shirts

I have found that shoe trees are a cheap way of getting more life out of your shoes.

A simple way of keeping a jacket (the zippered Sahara-type jacket) clean and neat is to always fold and store it inside out.

When I take it off during introductions at the table, it's removed so that it's inside out. I zipper it and fold it like that. No lint, hair, dirt, etc., gets on the outside of the jacket.

To be honest, I rarely wash the jacket as it makes the outside fade. Of course, I only wear it for about 30 minutes prior to each game and never put it back on until before my next game.

You go to games with your officiating gear in a backpack?

Anybody else do that?

Sure, why not? Or how about a fanny pack?

Chuck carries everything he needs in a silly putty egg.

If you read my recent email you'll realize when I say Chuck carries EVERYTHING in that silly putty egg I mean he carries everything in that egg.

And you'll get an idea for what a tid in the tidbit is.

OK?

A prevailing theory goes that it derived from 'titmouse' to convey being 'tiny'.

Then, it follows logically that Chuck is a "tidbit"?

Geeze......and I thought Dan was only kidding about that silly putty egg. Learn sumthin' new every day.
