Shower caps are great for more than just covering food.
By Sayward Rebhal, Networx
I'll admit it, I totally do it. Oh you do it too? Well that's good. Yeah, I think most people do. Of course, I'm talking about those irresistible sample-sized bath goodies you find inside hotels. I adore them! And I take them, oh yes I do, as often as I can. I just can't help myself. I'm such a sucker for anything that's miniature.
And though soaps, shampoos, or lotions sure are nice, what I'm really after is the obscure stuff: little packs of wet wipes, little bath sachets, and the most precious prized treasure of the motel room toiletry racket, the mini sewing kit. So handy! I love those.
And of course, there's always a shower cap. Does anyone even use shower caps for their intended purpose? Other than when it's soaking in hair dye, I've never actually put a shower cap on my head. I do use them . . . for unintended purposes. They're actually quite handy to have around the house. Here are a few ideas:

We asked the experts what makes for a spectacular and saleable kitchen. The answer? Must-have features in today's for-sale kitchen can be categorized into three groups: amenities, adjacencies and, of course, appliances.Read More »from 3 Features of the Perfect Kitchen
A-list amenities start with an ample island long enough to serve as a buffet table when entertaining and wide enough to embed a "potfiller" sink.
Kitchens should be sited adjacent to a breakfast room, a formal dining room, and a family or great room, with access to outdoor dining on the terrace.
And when it comes to appliances, only top names need apply: Wolf for ranges and ovens (or Aga, Lacanche or La Cornue for European types); Sub-Zero for refrigeration; and Asko or Miele for dishwashers (two of them, please). The homes chosen for this column offer all of these features plus a special quality that money can't buy-kitchens that are truly the heart of the home.

Using people to your advantage is not a bad thing when you are up front with the favor you are asking, and if any, the payback you are offering. (Hint: fresh berries from your garden). A friend with organizational skills will be flattered that you thought she was so talented.
