Getting out grease stains with Dawn. If the grease stain is still there after washing and drying, you'll need to "reactivate" the grease stain by spraying it with WD 40 (sounds counter intuitive, right?), then putting Dawn soap on it, let it sit for a few minutes, rub the spot with an old toothbrush and then wash. Comes right out! (May try this if all else fails)

My yard is mostly shaded and is home to hordes of rabbits, so my previous attempts to grow herbs failed. This idea is amazing; you can get shoe organizers at the dollar store, and growing herbs vertically keeps them away from both weeds and pests. I can hang this from my shed door! Could also be great for flowers--imagine a "wall of flowers" on a patio or fence.
