Five Facts Friday

1. Lay a barbecue grill rack on the lawn overnight - the dew will combine with the enzymes in the grass to loosen any burned-on grease. Try it with messy oven racks, too!

2. Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal for inside windows. This way you can tell which side has the streaks. Straight vinegar will get outside windows really clean. Don't wash windows on a sunny day. They will dry too quickly and will probably streak.

3. Spray your Tupperware with non-stick cooking spray before pouring in tomato based sauces and there won't be any stains. *Note: This really works!*

4. To unclog a drain, drop 3 Alka Seltzer tablets down the drain followed by a cup of white vinegar. Wait a few minutes, then run the hot water.

5. Remove sticky price tags from glass by spraying with WD-40. Don't feel like going to the garage? Try this solution instead: Briskly rub on mayonnaise, then soak the glass in warm water. The label will peel right off.
