    Use an ice cube to remove old candle wax.
    I often stick an ice cube on the bottom of a votive candle holder, place it in a plastic bag and stick it in the freezer for a few minutes. The wax comes out without having to scrape anything.

    What a mess! Try Dawn - it is used to clean up animals after oil spills, so why not his hair?

    If you have a toenail fungus, use vick's vaporub. It takes a bit longer than prescription drugs, but it works.

    I know, it's hard to want to let anyone know I had a toenail fungus(!), but it really works!

    This is a good idea (be sure to protect his eyes, though)

    Also, prior to washing his hair, put on a little cornstarch, and kind of press down to absorb some of the oily-ness. You might have to wash two or three times, and use a clarifying shampoo.

    Thanks for the ideas! I have been working on his hair, and the goo is almost gone!
    I might have gone a little overboard with the cornstarch: he looked like Andy Warhol!!!!

    When my daughter put a whole tin of pomade in her hair, neither Dawn or soap would take it out, but two washings with Vinegar did the trick.

    In the autumn, collect leaves and store them uncovered in a pile for the winter. Let them get rained, snowed on and go through all of the natural processes. In the Spring use the material to cover the soil around new plants.
