Around the house

Keep kitchen countertops and other surfaces disinfected. Stash plastic spray bottle with a mixture of bleach and water under the sink. Spray counter and wipe dry with a paper towel.

Clean glass cookware with the wipe of a sponge that is saturated with vinegar.

Run lemon wedges or fresh mint leaves through garbage disposal to kill odors.

Apply paste car wax to front of refrigerator and buff to a shine. The wax coating will resist grease and fingerprints.

In the garden

Place a large coffee filter in the bottom of flowerpot before adding soil. This will keep soil from leaking through the drainage holes.
