Reducing Inside Temperature Without Air Conditioning
Keep windows closed and blinds open in the day. At night, open them for a cool breeze. Try buying fans, if you want to spend a good chunk of money! Hand held misters will increase your comfort. Taking hot showers only warms up the place. Keep lights to a minimum...
Removing Musty Smell From Books
Let them air out and use baking soda.

Cleaning Mud Stains on Tile
I would use a bleach solution (warm water would work better) with Q-tips.
Reusable Grocery Bags vs. Trashcan Liners
