Around the house

* When separating eggs, use a small aluminum funnel. Place funnel over measuring cup and break the egg into it. The yolk will remain while the white part slides through the stem into the cup.

* Seal small holes in window screens with clear cement glue. The repair will be almost invisible.

* Sweep up pet hair with a broom that has been dampened with water. Hair will cling to moisture.

* Avoid messy cleanups from painting jobs. Line roller tray with a plastic bag before pouring in paint. When finished, pick up edges of bag and dispose.

* Revitalize children's sliding board. Rub slide with wax paper to renew slickness.

In the garden

* Snip off spent flower heads of blooming bulbs. Do not trim foliage which provides nutrients for next year's flowers. Leave plants alone until they are completely withered.
