the soap dispenser and run it empty on the
hottest cycle. To ensure the hottest water, run
water at the kitchen tap until hot just before
you start the dishwasher.
"If you go camping
with kids, heres a fun way to identify your
campsite: Bring several brightly colored
helium-filled balloons with you and attach them
to the top of the tent. It will be easier to find
your tent when coming back from the facilities or
hikes." -- P.L. in Louisiana
"My digital camera
eats up batteries, so I always have a spare pair.
Did you know that some breath-mint containers are
the perfect size to hold two AA batteries? Check
out your candy aisle. My batteries are safely
stored in the camera case, not banging about,
just waiting to be used." -- D.C. in
