Extra Room Many families don't have extra rooms to spare and are using sofa beds to turn the living room into a double - purpose room. Room - darkening shades in gay colors or patterns add a mix - or -match decorative flair to windows and provide efficient blackout service for sleeping. Protect Nails Working bare - handed? Apply hand cream under nail tips before you begin. The cream helps keep out grease and grime and wipes away when the job is done. To bleach gardeners' nails and get rid of ugly nail stains, use a crystal- clear cuticle remover under the nail tips and around cuticles. One new remover rinses away excess cuticle with water, leaving nails as clean and white as a professional manicure does. Contrary to what many people believe, young women suffer from dry skin. One survey vealed that the greatest usage of bath oil is among woman under 35, who are perhaps more sophisticated in skin - care techniques than their mothers. Today's bath oils are a vast improvement over the skin treatment used by women in the Renaissance. They plastered pieces of raw bacon on their skin to alleviate dryness. — Society News e'hyllis Reed, Society Editor Ph.
