Spot Shot will take red wine out of white carpet. Also, Liquid Wrench is a really good item to keep around. Out here the electricity goes down frequently and can stay out for a day or two at a time. So I have increase my collection of kerosene lamps. I bought a really pretty one a few weeks back, but couldn't get it open to add oil. Several years back I had used a 'penetrating oil' product to get my hose off the hydrant when I lacked the physical strength. When I went to buy more the place I bought it no longer had it and the sales person had no idea what I was talking about. I Googled 'penetrating oil' and came up with Liquid Wrench. Ordered it off Amazon. I doused the lamp base with it and let it set for about a week. It opened easily. Now the lamp is cleaned up, filled with oil and fully functional for the next power outage. Do you have a favorite product or gadget that is useful around the house?
