Club Soda for Carpet Stains
I recently had my carpets professionally cleaned and I asked what is the best thing to use to clean spots without leaving a residue that actually attracts more dirt (such as Resolve and Oxiclean). He told me the best thing to use was plain old club soda. He said to pour it on let it sit a few minutes and then use a shop vac or wet dry vac of some sort to suck up the excess liquid. He said for most stains you shouldn't even have to rub at all. He said this will work on pet stains also. By D.Bulanda

Keep furniture clean with treated cloths that gather dust instead of scattering it. Coat the inside of a small screw-top jar with a few drops of furniture polishing oil or wax; place a clean, lint-free cloth in it. Cover tightly and leave overnight. The cloth will absorb just enough oil or wax to dust and polish at the same time.

As we know, newspapers can be used for a whole lot of things around the house. But they're so unruly and hard to grab. Here's an idea - open a few days' papers out on your kitchen table, use scissors to cut them into fourths.
