Use shredded paper as mulch in the garden. It keeps the ground cool and smothers weeds. After the shreds have been laid down and watered, they form a blanket similar to papier-mâché. Water still gets through, but the weeds can’t. Potatoes and peppers love it.
Need to remember this ... so many clothes I thought were ruined... Chalk will remove grease stains from clothes. Simply rub the stain with chalk, then toss in the wash as normal.
