The (unexpected) benefits of tea

I am certainly not the sort of person from whom you'd get cleaning tips (or beauty, fashion, or cooking pointers). But in the 'does this woman have nothing better to do?' category, consider this helpful hint for bringing out the best in your wood floors--use tea.

Linda Cobb notes, "They [this would be your floors]love the tannins in tea." Well I know that mine certainly did. A little black tea and a lot of elbow grease the other night at 9:30 p.m., and my kitchen floor was no longer gummy and dull. All that, and then the icky used tea just gets tossed on the garden!

My son thinks I need a life. He's right.
