    "Tender Loving Care". It's generally a euphamism for something (house, car, etc.) that's a little "beat up" or "worn around the edges".

    You can also use this euphamism refering to people in general.
    Ex: "What he needs now is just rest and a lot of TLC."
    "She will need a lot of TLC when she gets out of hospital."
