- With his trademark folksy wisdom, Earl Proulx tells you how to recycle those things we all have lying around the house into ingenious household solutions without spending money on fancy cleaning products or pricey gadgets. Some of Earl's particular favourites are cat litter (as a cleaner for oil spills) and, of course, vinegar (to clean just about anything, unclog showerheads, as well as trap fruit pests), duct tape (as both tick remover and a protection against blisters), and milk jugs (bird feeders and clothespin holders). His fun and inventive ideas also include: Ant-proof your home with lemon juice; Cover up furniture scratches with a dab of iodine; Use powdered milk to soothe sunburn and remove makeup; Make an earring holder out of window screen; Recycle bubble wrap for a toilet tank insulator; Organised by location inside and outside of the house, this essential compendium will make you pause each time you start to throw something out in the rubbish.
