Bleach Stains from my Washer are Driving Me Nuts!
i need help. Every once in a while (more lately) when I do a colored load of wash clothes will come out with what looks to be a bleach stain on them. I have already lost a few shirts and some nice pants and I cant figure out whats doing it. I very rarely use bleach and I know I didnt spill it. I seperate the clothes and follow the lables. I am sick of losing nice clothes. It will only happen to one or two things a load and not every time I do wash. Anyone have any ideas what it could be?? Thanks for the help, Missy in PA

Prevent Cat from Peeing on Friend's Clothing
For some reason, when ever I have company over my cat decides to not use the litter box. Instead, he pees on my friends clothing or on the carpet. I guess guests upset him but he is generally a friendly cat. Anyone had this problem? - Mel

Use Curtains for Canopy Beds
Instead of buying those expensive drapes made specifically for canopy beds, why not try curtains. Curtains are less expensive if you buy them at the right store. Just make sure the curtain's rod length fits the canopy's frame rods. It is easy and cheap! By Angela from MO

If you use fuel oil for heating, have your tank topped off now, the price will be more expensive when you need it in the heating season.
Sharpen Pins with Your Pin Cushion
Make a pin cushion using steel wool as the stuffing. The steel wool will sharpen pins. Use corduroy, felt, or suede as the material for your pin cushion.
