Recycled glass jars and bottles can be put to lots of good use around the house for storage or decorating. The most challenging part of recycling glass jars, however, can be getting the
label completely off with no traces of the sticky gunk left behind. In the past I've used a product called Goo Gone for this job and it's always worked well. But guess what? You can make your own Goo Gone by simply combining vegetable oil and baking soda. I tested it out on a couple little glass jars and it really does work!

When the original owners of our house finished the basement they ran the romex through the concrete block before adding wood strips and paneling. Is this the right way to do this? If not how should it be done?
We have a sunroom that has been a problem forever! The original owners did a terrible job of building it to begin with. We had some repairs done about 12 years ago which made it better
but it is now leaking again and the fixed large windows need to be replaced because the seal is broken. I think part of the problem is there is not enough slope to the roof so water pools around the skylights and they leak. We're thinking for just tearing it down and replacing it with a deck or maybe a screened in porch. Any ideas or suggestions for contractors?
I think we have compacta holly but they grew too tall and now they are very scraggly I think due to lack of sun. I'm looking for something about 3-4 ft high and low maintenance but will make a nice hedge around the base of the house.
