The Best Stain Removing Tips
Yard Dirt

Let dry, then vacuum up loose particles. Next, apply a solution of warm water and dish soap. Remove soap residue with a damp towel; blot. Repeat until the stain is gone.
Magnetic Garden Organizer

Gardening gloves have a way of disappearing. Once dirty, they seem to blend into berry patches and stone walls -- only to be found the next day, dew-soaked and useless until they dry. To keep gloves handy, sew magnets onto their cuffs. 

1. Cut two 1 1/4-inch-long pieces of 3/4-inch-wide grosgrain ribbon. Sew 1 piece of ribbon to inside of cuff, leaving 1 side open (for a neater hem, fold under the cut ends of ribbon before stitching). 

2. Slip a 1/2-inch rare-earth disk magnet into the pocket; stitch to close. Repeat process with second glove. In the garden, keep gloves within reach by attaching them to a metal bucket or to each other around one of your belt loops.

Green Tip

There are several ways to save energy and water in the laundry room, from careful selection of your machines to using cold water. When your old washing machine clunked out, you cleverly replaced it with a front-loading model bearing the Energy Star label. Congratulations! You're already using 50% less energy and water, and saving $110 a year.

But if you're a renter or otherwise saddled with an oldie, you can still make running a load of laundry even more efficient. About 90% of the energy used for washing clothes is for heating the water.

So wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. And reduce the number of times you run the machine by always waiting until you have a full load.
