Any parent of multiple children (and lots of one-child families) knows that dressing for family holiday photos is easier said than done.
Who hasn't been there, frantically scrubbing at stains and tugging down sleeves while the photographer taps his foot? Worse, last-minute clothing issues don't lead to happy faces for the family photo.
This week, check the condition and fit of any outfits to be worn in family photo sessions. If garments need to be added or replace, add them to the seasonal shopping list. Save time and tears!
Before picnic season enters full swing, it's time to clean the barbecue grill. To do so, line a plastic garbage bag with paper towels, and insert grills. Spray grills with a mixture of 2 parts ammonia and 1 part water. Close bag and allow to stand overnight; open carefully, then wash grease-free grills with hot water and detergent before use.
