If you are like most of us and not getting any younger, consider adding features to your kitchen that will ease the transition to the Golden Years. Rollout shelves reduce stooping and bending; raising the dishwasher an extra few inches does too. Add a heatproof landing area next to the oven and stove to reduce cross-kitchen carting of heavy pots and hot pans.
Do you have any chairs, tables, or other wooden furniture that are a little wobbly due to the glue drying out? Here’s how you can tighten things up. First, disassemble the joined pieces. Clean off all of the old glue and dirt with warm vinegar. Rinse with clean water, and let everything dry completely. Use yellow carpenters glue to reassemble all the pieces back together.
