New Uses For Old Things - Book Review
I especially like the suggestions that relate to clutter-clearing, such as new uses for newspaper. Newspaper is a notorious source of clutter in many homes, but there are many Feng Shui-friendly ways to re-purpose your stacks of newspapers, in addition to recycling them. Newspaper is absorbent by its design because it has to soak up ink, and that means it can also absorb all sorts of moisture around your house. Try a few of these new uses for your newspapers.
• Deodorize food containers. Stuff a balled-up piece of newspaper into a lunch box or thermos, seal it, and let sit overnight.
• Ripen tomatoes. Wrap them individually and leave them out at room temperature.
• Pack delicate items. Wrap frames and figurines with several pieces of newspaper, then crumple the remaining sections to fill extra space in the box.
• Wipe away tough streaks on glass. Use newspaper instead of paper towels to clean mirrors and windows.
• Preserve antique glass. Remove smudges by rubbing with newspaper dipped in a solution of one part white vinegar and one part warm water.
• Dry shoes. Place crumpled paper in your shoes and let stand overnight.
• Freshen the crisper drawers. Line the bottom of the refrigerator veggie drawer with newspaper to keep it dry and odor free.
