Household Tip of the Week: Keeping Trash Cans Smelling Fresh

When cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, sprinkle a little scouring powder like Comet (or better yet, a generic brand) at the bottom of trash cans. The powder will soak up any liquids if there is a leak in your bag, and keep your bin smelling fresh.

Thanks to reader Jennifer B from Illinois for the tip!

    Great tip, especially when you have a little one with dirty diapers!!

  3. To get gum out of children's hair, use crunchy peanut butter. Rub into the gum and use a dry paper towel to wipe it off. Wash hair when done.
    The crunchy peanut butter works best, but you can use smooth pb also.
