Here are Marianne's Helpful Hints for today:

Ease the pain of an earache: Apply warm, damp washcloth or hot water bottle wrapped in a towel to ear; this will increase blood flow to the area and ease the pain; apply for 15 minutes several times a day or as needed

Prevent stains on tablecloths:  spray with fabric protector spray; let dry for 24 hours; wash if needed then use as usual

Have you ever tried either of these hints?  Did they work well?
