Doing paint work by yourself is a good idea as it is economical. Sometimes we need a small amount of paint. Usually, a film forms on partly used tins of paint. To avoid this pour in enough linseed oil to cover the surface.When the paint is needed later on, just stir in the oil. The paint will be as good as new.

Painting a ceiling is a difficult job. It creates lots of mess with inevitable drop in. Roller splatters make the cleaning a tiring job. Here is a tip to make the after paint cleanup less tedious.
TO paint a ceiling without making a mess, get a large rubber ball. Cut it in halves and drive a hole through the middle of one half. It should be just large enough to fit the handle of your paintbrush tightly. The arrangement will catch all drips and save a great deal of cleaning up.
Hope this will save you a lot of work. Share with your friends if you find it useful.
Did you know that you can use the flowers from your garden to perfume your clothes?
THE delicate fragrance of many of our sweetest flowers can be imprisoned in your clothes. So why not gather them from your own garden, crush them into tiny muslin sachets, and place with your lingerie. In this way, your clothes will retain that subtle suggestion of perfume so desirable to every dainty woman.
A bunch of violets left in a drawer for half a day will perfume clothes sufficiently for a special outing in the evening-especially if your garments are slightly warmed first.
The flowers should be gathered when the sun is hot, crushed, and put into muslin bags, to avoid staining, and then placed in boxes and drawers.
After using flowers in this manner, you will never return to heavy bottled perfumes for lingerie. There is nothing to compare with the delightful freshness, and suggestion of delicacy, which real garden fragrance gives-without cost, and in such a simple way.

Before rolling up a carpet which is to be put away, put sheets of newspaper all over it, pinning or stitching these down, and then, when the rolling is done, cover the outside also with newspaper and tie it securely with string. Even if you take no other precaution against moths this treatment should keep the carpet reasonably safe from attack.
We often use lemon juice. Sometimes we need just a few drops of lemon juice. If we cut a lemon to get few drops, then the chances are that remaining cut lemon will dry out. Don't waste the lemon. Stick a fork at one end of the lemon and squeeze the required amount of lemon juice. Now keep the lemon in the fridge. It won't dry out and ready for further use.
Hope this tip will prolong the life of your lemon.
