Never again forget your room's paint color choice! On the inside of your light switch or outlet cover, using a permanent marker, just write the paint brand, color name, swatch number on a piece of painter's tape for quick reference. If needed, add the date you did your room makeover. Change the room color? Change the info tape! You can even add a touch of the actual paint in case you need to take it to the paint store to get a color match.

Clean fan blades...easy! The fine folks over at Real Simple have suggested an easy, yet resourceful way to clean your ceiling fan. It's no secret that the tops of the blades, especially this time of year, are working overtime and laden with thick dust. Even though there are all sorts of commercial tools you can use to clean them, they suggest sliding a pillow case over each blade and wiping them clean. The dust goes in the pillow case and can be repeated until all blades are clean. When you're done, take it outside and shake it to set those dust bunnies free once more! Read more at Real Simple.

No-Slip Dish Towels (DIY with velcro)...would keep my boxer from running off with the kitchen towel
DIY no slip dish towels. Thank you Velcro and Martha Stewart :) great idea!
No slip kitchen towel - Hanging a dish towel from an oven door makes sense -- the towel is always at the ready, and the oven's warmth quickly dispels dampness. Here's a way to improve on the idea, keeping the towel from slipping off: Make it into a loop by attaching Velcro strips to two ends, one on the front and one on the back, below. Stitch in place, or use iron-on Velcro strips.
