Check out these great articles at The Better Homes & Gardens website!

Best Closet Features

There are some very smart articles on the Better Homes & Garden website. These article series about organizing our closets are so inspiring that I had to share them. It's so transparent that these guys have a great budget and work very hard to give us a tremendous amount of resources for all of our home needs. In fact if it wasn't for the fact that we work together to present our content the Better Homes and Garden website would discourage me. Instead it inspires me to work harder to get more of you guys involved with The Small Job Depot. So go tell your friends. Email our link out and get involved in sharing our community with at least one person today. See you in the next article.  Just click the  Best Closet Features link above and enjoy!TKR

Killing roaches old school by: Al Carrell The Super Handyman


4 Tablespoons boric acid powder

2 Tablespoons of either flour or sugar

1 Tablespoon of cocoa

Mix well and then put in bottle caps or make small trays of aluminum foil. Put these where roaches are likely to be and soon, they won't be anymore

A great window cleaning recipe from super handyman Al Carrell


1 cup kerosene*

½ cup ammonia

1 gallon warm water

Sponge on and squeegee off. Then polish the glass with wadded newspaper. To make streaks show up better, do one side of the glass with all vertical strokes and the other with all horizontal strokes. You need not have a stroke over streaks!

*kerosene is flammable and also leaves a slight odor, but not for long.
