Household Hints

Our latest batch of household hints promises to make life a little easier:

  1. Instead of chopping or mincing garlic, use a lemon zester to grate it.
  2. If opening a wine bottle isn't your gift, and little bits of cork get inside, use a coffee filter to catch the cork pieces as you pour the wine into a wine carafe.
  3. Put clear nail polish on the bottom rim of metal shaving cream cans so they don't leave rust stains in your shower.
  4. When hand-washing a sweater, use a salad spinner to get rid of excess water before laying it out to dry.
  5. Use a bulliten board to store your jewelry -- so you have it all in clear view and at your fingertips.
  6. Safety-pin socks together before washing them, so you always have a matched pair.
