Around the house
* Use beach bags to store summer clothing like bathing suits, shorts and sandals. Save space by hanging on walls in niches that are out of sight.
* Before heat is turned on, vacuum dust from vents. Remove grilles and run through dishwasher.
* Spruce up dress shirts. With a fine mist of spray starch on collars and cuffs, a damp, freshly laundered, permanent-press shirt should not require ironing. Hang to dry.
