A duvet cover does a yeoman's job in protecting a comforter from spills, stains, and general wear and tear. To prevent the comforter from shifting around inside the cover, most need a slight modification. Sew two pieces of 2-inch-long fabric tape to all four inside corners of the duvet cover; at each corner of the comforter, push the filler toward the center, tie the fabric tape around the bunched fabric, and sleep happily ever after.
Some soaps are so intensely fragrant that they can be used like sachets to perfume clothes. Slip a bar or two of your favorite aromatic soap (with the paper wrapping on) into a dresser drawer. Before the sweet smell fades, it will scent the contents for weeks or possibly months.
Combs, brushes, and toothpaste take up considerable space when laid horizontally on a shelf. Flat-backed self-adhesive cups on the inside of the cabinet door hold them more efficiently. Before pressing the cups in place, line them up between the shelves. To ensure the door can close, put thin items on the shelves in the spots where the cups will take some space.
Here's a nontoxic but effective way to clean your tub: Add one teaspoon of liquid soap and several drops of an antibacterial essential oil (such as tea tree, eucalyptus, rosemary, or peppermint) to one cup of baking soda. Add just enough water to form a paste, and use it with a sponge or brush to scour bathtub surfaces
Short shower curtains look tidy and tailored, and they don't trap dust and moisture. To create the look in your bathroom, cut a fabric curtain 2 inches longer than the desired length, then fold and sew a 2-inch hem. Leave the plastic liner hanging full-length in the tub to contain water from the shower.
