If the Flynn's Don't Have it . . .There was a large nice family that lived in the neighborhood. My children loved to play with their children. Of course, they lived quite austerely.

Use That Bucket of Soapy WaterAfter you've hand-washed your vehicle, don't pour out the bucket of soapy water solution just yet-there's still a lot of cleaning power in those suds; pour it on dirty spots on your patio, carport/gargage floor, picnic table, you-name-it! Scrub the dirty spots with a stiff broom, then rinse with clean water. Voila! You've gotten double duty from your bucket of detergent!
