This week's Tip:


Unpacking Fall decorations this week reminded me of a clever way 
to keep them smelling fresh.

Newspapers absorb odors!  
Really they do.  

That's why I wrap my seasonal items in newspapers.  
I even use newspapers in smelly lunch boxes or shoes.  

Have you used newspapers to eliminate smells?
