Irreverant yet useful collected household tips from The Oldie magazine.
     Tips for Meanies presents a host of alternative uses for common or garden household goods. Who knew you could use the humble teabag to make organic fertilizer or to retain moisture at the bottom of a plant pot? Or that shampoo is so good for removing stains and ideal for washing delicates?

     With the wit and wisdom of Jane Thynne accompanied by full colour illustrations by veteran illustrator Martin Honeysett, this is the perfect gift book for the Meanie in all our lives.
