|Caring for wood furniture
Wood furniture does best in rooms with moderate humidity. If your home becomes too dry in the winter, the wood could dry out and crack. If this is a chronic condition in your house, consider getting a humidifier.
|Organizing closets and drawers
If your closets and drawers are already overflowing, the first thing to do is get rid of what you don't need. For a messy closet, schedule an hour for cleaning.
|Quick and easy clothing repairs
Nothing will replace a needle and thread for repairing clothing, but if your clothes become damaged when you're away from home, there are a few temporary fixes that could get you by for a while.
If you only use your good china on special occasions, store each piece in a plastic bag. You can also find protective sleeves designed for that very purpose.
