Around the house

Keep drains from clogging. Once a week, pour 1 cup baking soda into sink drain, followed by 1 cup cider vinegar and 1 pint boiling water.

* Stack freshly laundered linens beneath the ones already stored so towels and sheets are rotated as they are used. Try placing sheets of fabric softener between linens to keep them sweet-smelling.

* Remove tea and coffee stains from tablecloths. Rinse cloth with cold water and rub salt into the stain until it disappears. Rinse and air dry.

In the garden

Keep ferns in a cool, bright room -- away from direct sunlight, heating ducts and drafts. Spray daily with a fine mist of water.
