    What is the point of ironing your clothes?

    Yes, in places where people line dry their clothes, ironing can serve two purposes: one to get the last bit of moisture out if washing day is cool and damp or, as mentioned in another post, to soften the fabric so it doesn't feel like cardboard.Hehe, after we were first married, my mother was appalled to learn that I not iron my husbands hankies. Why, I asked. I fold them, and when he puts them in his back pocket and sits down, they are pressed.

    Magnetic Spice Rack

    Try putting plastic wrap over the top of the jar first. Then screw on the lid. The plastic wrap forms a tighter seal, conforms to the threads, and forms an anti-friction barrier between any spilled powder and the lid. (I also do this to keep things from leaking, when transporting liquids or other leakables in a suitcase.)Great post. I love magnets, but hadn't thought of this. (stupid) Question: could you not just put your magnets inside the jar at the bottom? They would stick to the jar, which would, in turn stick to the metal board.

    Yes, I meant put the magnets inside without the JB Weld. The magnets should stay put, due to, well, their magnetism. ;)
