A child­ish ques­tion?

Fast facts Dear Read­ers:

Here are some new uses for cot­ton balls:

■ Soak a cot­ton ball in rub­bing al­co­hol and gen­tly dab an ink spot on your cloth­ing. Al­low it to air-dry, then dry-clean or wash the gar­ment.

■ Got long fin­ger­nails? Stuff one or two cot­ton balls into the fin­gers of a rub­ber glove be­fore clean­ing to pre­vent punc­tur­ing the glove.

■ Soak cot­ton balls in white vine­gar and place on wa­ter spots on your chrome fix­tures.
