Around the house
* Prevent onions from sprouting. Store in brown paper bag on bottom shelf of refrigerator.
* Oil outside grill before using it for barbecue. The oil will prevent foods from sticking; cleanup will be easier.
* Renew fabric cushions that are used outdoors. Use colored pens to color in or outline designs such as faded leaves and flowers. Test for color fastness first in an inconspicuous area.
* Remove grass stains from concrete. Rub a paste of dishwasher detergent and water onto spot and rinse with a hose.
