*When the doll clothes are hard to put on, sprinkle the doll with corn starch and watch them slide on
*Heavy dandruff - pour on the vinegar!
*Body paint - Crisco mixed with food coloring. Heat the Crisco in the microwave, pour into an empty film container and mix with the food color of your choice!
*Tie Dye T-shirt - mix a solution of Kool Aid in a container, tie a rubber band around a section of the t-shirt and soak
*Preserving a newspaper clipping - large bottle of club soda and ½ cup of milk of magnesia, soak for 20 min. and let dry, will last for many years!
*A Slinky will hold toast and CD's!
*To keep goggles and glasses from fogging, coat with Colgate toothpaste
*Wine stains. Pour on the Morton salt and watch it absorb into the salt.
*To remove wax - Take a paper towel and iron it over the wax stain, it will absorb into the towel.
*Remove labels off glassware, etc. - Rub with peanut butter!
*Baked on food -fill container with water, get a Bounce paper softener and the static from the Bounce towel will cause the baked on food to adhere to it. Soak overnight. Also you can use 2 Efferdent tablets, soak overnight!
*Crayon on the wall - Colgate toothpaste and brush it
*Dirty grout - Listerine
*Stains on clothes - Colgate
*Grass stains - Karo Syrup
*Grease Stains- Coca Cola, it will also remove grease stains from the driveway overnight. We know it will take corrosion from batteries!
*Fleas in your carpet? 20 Mule Team Borax- sprinkle and let stand for 24 hours. Maybe this will work if you get them back again.
*To keep FRESH FLOWERS longer Add a little Clorox, or 2 Bayer aspirin, or just use 7-up instead of water.
*When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you "squeeze" for freshness or softness. Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a different color twist tie. They are: Monday - Blue; Tuesday - Green; Thursday - Red; Friday - White; Saturday - Yellow. So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie - not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue - Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the one with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something new everyday!!! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.
