When we have busy lives, short-cuts to tackling the smallest tasks are always welcome. This is exactly what peaked my interest with a book called Household Hints: Save Time, Save Money, Save Energy" while at the thrift store one day.

Seems like kids just have this "thing" with stuffed animals. You can buy them new ones but it's the scruffy ones they love the most. If you just can't part with them and you are afraid they will fall apart in the wash, how about this?
Hack #453
"Spruce up old stuffed non-washable toys by placing in a bag with baking soda. Shake and brush off.'

I have two fur babies; I love them but everything in my house, in return, is furry.
Hack #701
"To remove pet hair from furniture and pillows, dampen a sponge with a solution of warm water and glycerin or just use water. Squeeze the sponge thoroughly and lightly, brush over furniture." We actually tried this one on live TV and it works great!

As someone who loves to thrift store shop, I deal with a lot of tags that I need to peel off, that don't peel off so easily. If you don't access to something like Goo Gone, how about this?
Hack #1043:
Hairspray will remove sticky residue left by price tags.
