Coffee Grounds to Remove Odors in the MicrowaveI cooked some corn dogs that were old and frost bitten. Boy, did I burn 'em. Anyway, I had a hard time getting the smell out of the microwave. Tried everyone's tricks and tips. They reduced the odor, but it was still present, especially when I'd microwave something else.

How Do You Bathe an Old Dog?How do you bathe an old dog? I have a 12 year old Siberian Husky who has joint problems. The weather has been extremely cold lately and I need to bring her in where it is warm. My problem is that she weighs close to 70 lbs and I just got my bathtubs re-done recently so I can't give her a bath in them. She would scratch the sprayed on finish. And, it's too cold to do it outside. Other than take her to PetSmart, what could I do to bathe her where it is warm?
