A quick mosquito repellent

A Budget Camper You Build From Plans

Here is a interesting idea . . .

Keep Garden Tools Clean

Keep you garden tools clean and rust free by keeping a bucket of sand handy. Brush off excess soil, then plunge your tool into the sand. The sand alone will scrub your tool clean. You can add a bottle of oil to your bucket of sand to lubricate and protect your tool. Many people use old motor oil. I like to use a cooking oil, but this isn't practical if you're bucket is accessible to wildlife.

Useful Tips

# If someone has put permanent marker on your car, you would want to try a test area with either WD-40 or fingernail polish remover or both, depending on how long it has been on there.
# Plain white vinegar is a good substitute for fabric softener. Environmentally safe and non-alergenic, just add 1/2 to one cup as you would a liquid softener.

Gardening Tip

If you'll be planting seeds left over from last year, you can test their viability before planting. Sprinkling the seeds you want to use in the bottom of a glass or jar and then fill it with water. The seeds that float to the top are probably no good. Plant the seeds that stay on the bottom. (Once the seeds are wet, you'll need to get them in soil ASAP.)


To preserve newspaper clippings mix a large bottle of club soda with 1/2 cup milk of magnesia, soak for 20 min and let dry on a cake rack. It will last for years.
