Winter hazards.

Deicing products, like salt, are a welcome relief from slippery sidewalks and driveways. But when salty slush and water splash on your clothes, the chemical solution can pull color, leave rings and create permanent stains on your winter clothing and shoes. Before your snow-spattered trousers, skirt or outerwear show the signs of damage, bring them in for prompt cleaning or laundry.

Cold season.

When a forgotten tissue in the pocket hits the washing machine, tiny shreds of linty paper get everywhere. Pick off the bigger pieces before letting the dryer’s lint trap do its job. Remove while damp and shake out remaining scraps, use a clothes brush or lint roller to finish.

Glittering holiday.

Here’s a very tiny tip: When the shine comes off, and the carpet’s covered in glitter from ornaments, decorating and celebrating, grab a ball of Play-Do. Roll it over the mess to pick up the loose bits of shine. That’s about as much housecleaning as we’re going to do today.

Happy (new year) wishes.

A few gifts to start off on the right foot: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect. It’s a fresh year with new opportunities and challenges, new rewards and surprises. New friends and new ideas. We wish you all the very best and plan to make 2017 the best ever.

Resolutions.

First, Peace. Followed by the usuals: eat better, smile more, lose weight, learn something new, share, drink more water, walk. To that we’ll add “Say Hello” to someone new every day. We say hello a lot every day as part of our job. And the more we do it, the more we like it. Drop by soon and we’ll show you how good it feels to be greeted as a friend. See you in the New Year!
