First Lawn FeedingGive your lawn its first “official” feeding of the season by mixing 3 lbs. of Epsom salts per bag of natural dry lawn food. Apply the mixture at half of the recommended rate, and then wash it down with this Lawn Snack Tonic: 1 can of beer and 1 cup of dishwashing liquid mixed in a 20 gallon hose-end sprayer, filling the balance of the sprayer jar with ammonia. Apply it to your lawn to the point of run-off to really get it off on the right root this spring.
Wash Your Windows
It’s also time for another spring chore—window cleaning. But rather than buy a pricey store-bought cleaner, whip up your own by mixing equal parts of ammonia and rubbing alcohol in a hand-held sprayer bottle. Just spritz it on the window, and wipe with a clean cloth to reveal a clear, streak-free window.
