Hints From Heloise
Dear Heloise: Mindful of the bathroom needs of us elderly, and for just pure safety for all ages, we found it wise to pack a couple of night lights for our overnight sojourns in motels.
Many motels make no provisions for night lights. You either have to leave a bathroom door ajar to provide a light (in many motels that means the raucous room fan is also on) or a brighter light somewhere in the sleeping area has to be left on.
The night lights also would be reassuring to children who might be leery of a strange darkened room. - J. Coyle, Houston
Here are a few ways to use a dish drainer:
Use as a desk organizer.
Put in child’s room to hold books.
Put next to the bed of a sick child to hold coloring books, crayons, favorite books and other items that might be needed.
Put under kitchen sink to organize cleaners.
