Advice for Life

Clean the fireplace and hearth at least once a week during the months that you use it. Vacuum or brush up ashes, then wipe down the hearth with a damp cloth or sponge. Clean the walls of the firebox with a dry bristle brush or the dusting attachment of the vacuum. Don't scrub the fire-brick or cement block with water; it may reduce heat retention. Clean the chimney flue yearly. Call a chimney sweep and avoid accidents.

Rotate your bed linens. Put linens just back from the laundry on the bottom of the pile in the linen closet. When you take your fresh linens from the top of the pile, you'll always be rotating your linens in a logical manner, giving them all uniform wear and tear. A good way to increase the loft of a down comforter is to tumble it in your dryer with a pair of sneakers. Go figure.

Coping with frozen locks. Since cold weather is on the horizon, you may start to experience frozen locks on your car door or trunk. Light a match and hold under your key to warm up the key; then quickly insert the key in the cylinder and turn. Wear gloves so you don't burn yourself. To keep locks from freezing up on you, squirt them with some graphite lubricant (not oil). Then open and close the lock several times.
