Around the house

* Give a stainless steel sink sparkle. Clean and polish surface occasionally with a glass cleaner or a paste made of baking soda and water.

* Remove lint from upholstered furniture with pantyhose. This quick procedure avoids getting out the vacuum cleaner.

* Keep holiday gift wrap in good condition from year to year. Store rolls of wrapping paper upright in a garment bag or purchase a long box from a florist.

* Spread a paper towel over spills on counter tops when you are preparing a meal. After dinner, spills will wipe up easily during cleanup.

In the garden

* Water indoor plants with an empty dish-washing liquid bottle. Make sure bottle is rinsed out thoroughly. You can direct the stream of water more easily.
