Red wine on the carpet? Coffee stain on your white t-shirt? Candlewax on the tablecloth? This book will save you time and money on hundreds of everyday household problems, with advice on everything from unblocking a sink (if you own a tennis ball but not a plunger) to making your oven sparkle without any toxic chemicals.

Teenagers left a tissue in the laundry? No need for yelling: The Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc. has a trick to deal with it effortlessly.
