Looking for a new way to set a table? Need to remove a grass stain? Fresh out of toothpaste? From imaginative ideas to in-a-pinch fixes, REAL SIMPLE SOLUTIONS is packed with hundreds of ways to help you live better. Here you'll find smart and affordable solutions for every part of your life-cooking, cleaning, decorating, entertaining, getting dressed, grooming, working, and more. Whether you're looking for step-by-step directions for hand washing delicates, a soup-to-nuts list of pantry essentials, or unexpected uses for newspaper, the ideas are both enlightening and timeless.

Page after page, REAL SIMPLE SOLUTIONS features:

- Quick, low-cost ways to refresh everything from your wardrobe to your living room

- Surprising new uses for everyday items: emery boards, baking soda, old beach towels, and beyond

- Supplies and strategies to make basic jobs (getting dinner ready, wrapping gifts) even easier

- Invaluable reference information, including stainremoval charts and holiday tip sheets

- Simple instructions for doing common-but often difficult-tasks, like painting a room or carving a turkey

In addition, the book includes a compendium of multitasking household products and their many talents; an extensive, easy-to-use index; and a convenient, information-filled booklet that you can remove now and consult anytime.

An encyclopedic, modern take on the traditional household-hint book, REAL SIMPLE SOLUTIONS does double duty as an indispensable resource and a stylish addition to the coffee table.
