Tips for together time - and erasing the evidence

April 23, 2007


It's healthy for couples to have their own interests, but too much time apart can damage a relationship. The May/June issue of AARP The Magazine offers this advice to an energetic woman and her couch-potato spouse.

¢ Sit down with your husband to say you need to work on your relationship.

¢ Make a list of activities you'd like to do together. Have him do the same. (Include some physical activity to get the guy moving!)

¢ Build a routine for the two of you that includes some activities from both lists.

Collar color

Trying to get rid of a revealing lipstick stain? The April issue of Best Life tells how to get that makeup off your collar.

¢ Because lipstick is oil-based, pat masking tape on the stain to remove any excess grease.

¢ Spray or dab the stain with a solvent that gets rid of grease, such as rubbing alcohol or hairspray. Nail polish remover works on white shirts, but the acetone in it will cause colored shirts to fade.

¢ Wait a minute or two and then blot the area with a clean, damp cloth.

Fun fact

Courtesy of the April issue of Details: According to a poll from Unilever, 61 percent of women would rather skip sex for a month than give up their favorite article of clothing.

Fun Fact #2. This article is stupid and serves no purpose other than to degrade what remaining values exist in American Families today.

Did these ideas come from the same source as the ones for gluing wallpaper on your floor for an "area rug" effect?

I have to agree with you on this one. Why not just get your husband to spend time with you by showing him how to remove lipstick from his collar?
