Removing Permanent Marker. Many parents with kids, or people working in offices, will have experienced the problem of someone using permanent marker on a dry-erase board or other similar surface. Removing the “permanent” ink is remarkably simple. Just scribble over top of the permanent ink with a Dry Erase marker. It will almost instantly dissolve the permanent ink and you can just wipe the surface clean with a dry cloth or whiteboard eraser. -- Matt Wilkins, Calgary, AB Canada
Wash your hands. The current Ebola Scare should remind all of us that simply washing our hands before eating or handling food can help to avoid disease. By the way wetting the hands before before squirting can reduce the absorption of hand cleaning liquids through the skin. Also note that excessive protection of children from "good dirt" is believed by many experts to be the main cause of the massive increase of allergies in our populations. David Edmunds MK UK
