My son-in-law makes really cool bowls with old LPs. He microwaves them for about 1 minute (until softened but not melted), then carefully drapes them over an upside-down glass bowl and shapes the edges into a wavy pattern. I have several, and they are very durable and a real conversation-starter!

I have a problem with this, too (although I did not know the name "gaulding"), and what works best for me is this - wash the area gently with soap and water, and dry thoroughly, then apply a thin layer of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. You can re-apply throughout the day as needed. This usually clears the problem up within a day or two. Good luck!

The best way to clean shower doors is with used dryer sheets! Just scrub them with the used sheet, and the scum comes right off, and stays off longer, too. Also, it smells great!

I had a curly-haired mutt with this problem years ago. At first I used the commercial No More Tangles spray, and it worked OK. Then I tried a home remedy that works GREAT. After bathing your dog, spray him/her with a solution of 1T liquid fabric softner to 2 cups water, and brush through. This will keep the coat soft and shiny, and remarkably less tangled. Good luck!

Probably not, but it can't hurt. Try leaving a large bowl of charcoal briquettes in the center of the room for a few days - maybe that would help. Also, lighting candles might help to neutralize the odor.

No - most do need to be blanched, but not all. I freeze summer squashes without blanching, just slicing and freezing. Tomatoes can be frozen whole. This is an excellent way to have fresh-tasting sauces all winter, and the skins just slip right off once the tomatoes are partially thawed. I also freeze corn straight out of the garden without shucking, then microwave still frozen and still in the husks - tastes like summer!

I would suggest a vinegar wash and rinse, if it is just a film on the glasses. It could be "etching", which sometimes occurs, and I don't think there's a cure for that. If your Cascade packs have a rinse agent already in them, the Jet Dry is overkill, and that might be the problem. Good luck!

If it's summer squash, like crookneck or zucchini, blanching is not necessary. Just slice or shred the squash and package. It will be somewhat watery when it's thawed, but you can drain off the excess water and use the squash in casseroles or breads, and it's still delicious!

Wraps are always good and easy to eat, too. Chicken or egg salad, ham and cheese, any cold cuts, or even leftover meatloaf or pot roast or roast chicken. I pack my husband's (and my own) lunch, and I do try to add some variety, like some fresh veggies or fruit, plus chips or a cookie. One of my current favorites is ham and cheese with mayo and sliced bell pepper. There are SO many options, I don't really know where to start (or stop, apparently!).

This is a tricky one - the only success I've had (I sprayed Pam on a cotton/poly blouse) was to lay the oily area over a dish towel, soak it with Dawn, and use a toothbrush to work it into the stain. Let it sit for an hour, rinse it with warm water, and let it air dry.

If the stain is still there, repeat. Then, again soak the stain in Dawn and run the pants through a warm water wash and a vinegar rinse. Let air dry and check. You may have to repeat to get it out, but it will eventually go away. Do NOT dry the pants in a dryer until the stain is gone, though, or the stain will be set for life! Good luck!

We use a power washer with a weak bleach concentration in the water - works great! If you don't have access to a power washer, you will need to get a good scrub brush and use a solution of 1 gallon water with 1 cup bleach added and just scrub it off - make sure to wear gloves, and to rinse off the steps afterwards.

Has he been checked by a vet? Has he been neutered? If the answer to both is yes, then it is probably either a bad habit or an attention-getter. I would make sure ALL urine odor has been removed from where he is peeing - if he's peeing in the same spot all the time, you can spray some bitter cherry spray there and he will stay away from that spot, which may break the habit. If he's angling for attention, maybe more time outside playing would help. Good luck with this, as I know how frustrating it can be!

It could be several things - first, check your bleach dispenser to make sure it's not blocked. If that's not it, then I imagine the problem is that your towels have accumulated a soap film and need to be "stripped".

Wash the towels in HOT water with 2 cups of white vinegar and run through two rinse cycles. If that doesn't help, repeat the process. If they are still dingy, and the bleach dispenser is clear, you might have a problem with your water. Good luck!

I don't know how to prevent this, but you can clean out the lint with a crochet hook. Just turn the button placket inside out as much as possible, then run the crochet hook behind the buttonhole.

They got mushy because of their high water content. I freeze shredded zucchini and sliced yellow squash, and use them in recipes. You must thaw and drain them first. The texture will not be the same, but for zucchini bread or a squash casserole, they are still fine (and tasty!).

Even though he's been checked by a vet, it sounds like it could be diabetes, a UTI, or some other disease that causes excessive thirst and loss of bladder control. I would insist on more tests to get to the bottom of this; he's obviously got something going on with his health. It doesn't sound like he's incontinent as much as he drinks so much he has to go frequently, and might not can make it to the door.

I take them out of the grocery store container, if they're in one, and just pop them into a brown paper bag, roll the top down, and stash them in the fridge. They'll last a week or more this way.

I wouldn't eat them. The only way to freeze potatoes is to either cook them all the way through, or at least par-cook them, otherwise they will turn black, and the texture suffers, too. Sorry - I hate to waste food, too!

Well, the obvious answer is full sun! We plant them near our barn so that they are sheltered from damaging wind, and make sure the soil is very loose and rich. A bumper crop every year!

We used the metal frame from a trampoline to make an arched grape arbor, and it works perfectly. The metal does not get too hot, especially once the vines start growing on them (or at least that has been my experience). We also have gourd vines growing on an old metal gate. Wisteria would be fine, too, as would rambling roses.
