the creek and cared not for the falling torrents. Their
clothes, however, were sights when they went to dress for

Here's A Tip
By JoAnn Derson
Whats on sale in
September? Cookware, dishes, pool toys and
accessories, and patio furniture, plus great
deals on new cars (new model year and unsold
previous model year).
"Wax drippings from
candles can be scraped off of most hard surfaces
with the side of a credit card." -- T.E. in
"I get a lot of
hair and long strings in my vacuum cleaners
roller. These can stop it rolling and burn out
the belt if you arent careful. I use my
seam ripper to get them off. Just run it along
the roller and pull out the hair and
strings." -- J.L. in Mississippi (Be sure
the vacuum is unplugged. -- JoAnn)
Need to sharpen your
scissors? Try cutting through a sheet of
fine-grit sandpaper; make multiple cuts and test
every three or four cuts for sharpness. Or you
can fold a square of aluminum foil in quarters
and cut it into strips. This should give you a
little extra sharpness in a pinch.
"If you need to
pack up something that is fragile, here is a
great tip: Use a shredder to shred sheets of
newspaper. It works far better than just wrapping
in paper and costs much less than packing
peanuts. Also, you can reuse these shredded
newspaper pieces in the garden, or put them in
your compost pile." -- R.C. in Minnesota
If you have wood floors,
you might already know about felt furniture pads
--little self-stick felt circles you can add to
the legs of furniture to reduce scratches on your
floors. You might not know that these same pads
can reduce scuff marks that appliances make on
countertops. It also makes it easier to scoot
around a heavy mixer or other appliance.
