Its and it's

I often see "it's" written when one means to use the possessive "its." A simple way to avoid this problem is to think "it's" means "it is." The apostrophe mark indicates a letter is missing. "Its" does not have an apostrophe. "Its" indicates possession as in "The dress lost its lustre after being washed."
