By: Joe Truini

Painter’s tape is great for protecting trim from drips and runs when painting interior walls. To keep the tape handy when you need it, make a simple belt holder from a piece of coat hanger wire.

    Hi Jo Ann, I’m so glad you like our Simple Solutions. We’ve shot hundreds over the past several years, so I’m sure you’ll find many more useful tips.
    We have not shown how to clean kitchen drawers, but I’d recommend emptying them out completely, vacuuming out the dust and crumbs, and then wiping down the interior with a damp sponge. Dry the surfaces well, then–and here’s the real trick–install plastic liners. The liners will help organize the contents and make clean up easier. Just lift out the liners and wipe down the drawers. Thanks for writing and good luck!–Joe T.
