Around the house

* When cleaning up after painting, wipe off lid and rim of can of paint; rub a coat of vegetable shortening on rims of can and lid. Next time you're painting, the lid will be easier to remove.

* Check filters of room air-conditioners at least once a month. If dirty, clean with mild soap and water. Remember to turn off units whenever house is empty.
