Now here’s a tip

• What’s on sale in June? Electronics, sporting goods, mattresses and, for you summer home renovators, building materials.

• Another underarm stain remover: good old lemon juice. Wet those deodorant stains with fresh lemon juice, then sprinkle with salt and rub. If it’s a hardy stain, hang the garment outside on a sunny day and let it dry in the sun. Then wash. Works well, and nontoxic too!

• “A fast way to freshen up your room in the summertime, with or without company coming, is to spray air freshener behind your fan when it’s running. It will distribute the scent throughout the room.” – S.H. in Ohio

• If you have a spice grinder or coffee grinder, here’s a little tip from me to you: When you are finished grinding, cut a piece of plain bread (white or wheat) in quarters, and grind it. It will flush the spice or coffee dust out of all the nooks and crannies. Toss the bread crumbs in the yard for the birds!

• “When you shop for shoes, go in the evening. Feet swell and expand throughout the day, so if you buy shoes in the morning, the fit might not feel too good later in the day.” – A.T. in Louisiana
