Household Hints - Save time, save money, save energy

When re-potting plants, place a coffee filter in the pot before filling it with soil. The filter stops the soil from leaking out of the bottom of the pot and making a mess in the saucer.

Sprinkle fresh oil stains on garage floors with plenty of cat litter, then grind the litter in with your foot. Sweep the litter up when it has absorbed the oil, and discard it.
