Dear Heloise: My husband is retired from the military and has some old uniforms we'd like to store. Some are heavily starched. Should I wash out the starch before I store them? -- A.L., Huntsville, Ala. Good question! Before storing a uniform, you want to make sure it is clean, of course. Some experts say you don't have to remove the starch, but it can cause permanent creases in uniforms when stored. Others (me included) think you should wash (if the uniform is washable) out the starch. If they are "dress" uniforms, do have them professionally cleaned.

Every year there are recipes that make the canning circuit that suggest the jars can be processed in the oven. This can be dangerous because the temperature will vary according to the accuracy of oven regulators and circulation of heat. Dry heat is very slow in penetrating into jars of food. Consider picking up a hot cookie sheet with a dry potholder and then picking up another with a wet potholder. Heat transfers very quickly with the wet potholder and chances are you will drop the cookie sheet before letting your hand burn.
One late-August afternoon, I headed out of Custer State Park toward Highway 79, Hermosa and the road home to Pierre with a thick column of smoke preventing me from relaxing and enjoying the ride.
NEW YORK -- Toddler-safe texting has arrived. Spurred by burgeoning demand for kid-styled tablets, LeapFrog Enterprises and VTech Holdings revamped their tyke-targeted devices to add features that let three-year-olds send short messages to grandma and even watch online videos without stumbling across websites kids shouldn't see.
