This week lots of folks are bringing home a Christmas tree. In a few weeks, lots of folks will be taking them down again. Right after that nice fresh green tree has dried out and become brittle, needles start falling off everywhere, especially when you move it. This leaves a trail of needles that you'll be finding for years to come. There is a simple solution. Buy a disposable plastic drop cloth, cut a small hole in the center and push the trunk though the hole before putting the tree in the stand. Then set up the tree as usual. Cut a small slit in the plastic to add water when needed and fold the excess plastic under the tree skirt. When it's time to remove the tree, simply unfold the plastic and bring all four corners up to the treetop. It's our gift to you, and that's a wrap. And that's the On The House tip for today.
