After the holiday clean-up tricks

The gift wrap is still laying around the tree, guests have finally departed and it's time to get your house ready for New Year's Eve. Here are a few hints to help you make clean-up a cinch:

* Use wire to make arack against the ceiling in a closet to store rolls of gift wrap - keeps them from taking up space and getting ripped in the process.

* Use a walnut (out of shell of course!) to rub over scratches in wood furniture to disguise dings and scrapes.

* Use egg cartons to separate and store your holiday decorations.

* And that earring you lost during the party? Put a nylon stocking over the vacuum hose and use it to gently pick up tiny items like that before you do the full cleaning.
