Don’t Toss It, Clean It!

Your plastic shower curtain liner can get moldy and grungy over time. But there’s no need to throw it away. Simply wash it with some soiled towels in warm water with 1/2 cup laundry detergent and 1/2 cup baking soda on your machine’s regular cycle. Add 1 cup white vinegar to the rinse cycle. Hang it back up when the wash is done.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
