    I just tried that new 'Spray N Wash' product for stains called - Spray N Wash Dual Power. It comes in a bottle of two separate cleaners..one is oxi cleaner. I had set-in stains in one of my shirts, and this stuff REALLY works like magic. Best stain remover I've found, yet. I really recommend it.

    I just used one of those Scotch brite disposable toilet bowl scrubbers. Brilliant!!! Why did it take that long for them to come up with something like that? It was easy to use and not messy or anything.

    I most definitely agree with this statement. My son has a WHITE baseball uniform and all ya gotta do is spray the good ole Greased Lightning on the red clay stains, mud stains, grass stains and viola....stains are gone bye bye!!!!

    thanx for the info, dreaminginblond. I'll have to look for that stuff in the store. Some people even swear by Lestoil for stain removal, but I dont like the overpowering scent.

    Has anyone tried the Magnetic Broom that is supposed to take up pet hair from your carpet? I've just about murdered my vacuum cleaner sucking up cat hair. It'd be nice to find something that gets up the cat hair without destroying my vacuum, which is till fairly new.

    Critical - tell me more! I have dog hair on the carpet so bad the vacuum does nothing. I have to scoot around on my butt with a clothes brush and scrape and scrape away. Then a day later it is covered again. I'm about ready to get the poor sucker shaved!!!

    Critical and Gut - I don't know how big your carpets are, but the only thing that ever got the hair out of mine was when I took the cat brush too it - worked just as well on the carpet as on the cat.

    Problem: Need a good moisturizer that really works and doesn't itrritate my skin. extremely dry (and sensitive) skin. Skin irritated by many scents added to typical lotion.

    Tried: everything. Aveeno. VitaBath (love the smell). Vaseline. Eucerin. Bag balm. Nivea.

    What has worked best? Olay's new Quench moisturizer. (in the purple bottle). This stuff is unbelievable. Even FINALLY cured my sore, chafing heels (better than straight petroleum jelly or Bag Balm even). Highly recommend you try it.

    Gut - check out the link in my post. I think that is the product I saw in a commercial or infomercial. If it's the same product that I'm thinking of, you use it like a broom/push broom and it just takes up the pet hair. Of course, then you're left with a huge wad of hair, but at least it's not on your carpet anymore!

    ETA: Glitter - my apartment is pretty big, so I'd go crazy trying to get up the hair with a cat brush. What I do now is put on some running shoes and use my feet to pill the hair up into big wads. It's really gross, but it gets the job done.... and I get a little work out!
