This and That

Getting Stains Out:

I have been using this stain remover for over twenty years.  It rarely fails me.  If you are going to have to discard something because of a stain, what have you got to lose?  I keep it in a sealable container between uses.  Then I don't have to waste it or remake it for every stain.

Stain Remover:
1 cup powdered dishwasher detergent
1 cup powdered Clorox II

Dissolve in hot water ( I use a kitty litter container.)
Soak the stained item(s) overnight.
Launder as usual.

Buy Them Identical:

For all the sock wearers in your family, buy them several pairs of identical socks.  No need to match them up.  Just put them in the sock drawer.  Whatever two socks they grab will automatically match.
 When a sock wears out or gets lost, keep the good one.  It will find a different mate.
Want some variety?  Pick two or three colors to buy.  Just make sure you buy multiple pairs of each color.  (Don't buy navy and black.  They are too hard to tell apart.)
Save frustration, time and money.

Want a Neater Looking House?

Put into action the following:  items in a container automatically look neater than items strewn all over a surface.
Have a large attractive basket for mail so it doesn't just get dropped onto the first flat surface inside the door.
Dirty dishes gathered in the sink look better than scattered all over the kitchen.
Dirty clothes in a laundry basket don't look as bad as dirty clothes all over the floor.
You get the idea.

Just a Drop:

Condition your hair frugally.
 Wash your hair as normal.  Towel dry.  Put 1 DROP of conditioner in your hand.  Rub through your hair and style as usual.

Need to Shave Your Legs?

Use hair conditioner to prep your legs and soften the hair.  Remember, a little goes a long way.
