1. Use cupcake cases to cover drinks glasses in the summer and prevent flies from dropping in. I need to do this with my wine glass because you can be sure, if you are outside and you need to go do something when you come back there is a fly in your red wine. They love it.


2. Use bulldog clips to keep stacked bottles in place in the fridge


3. Another way to clean a chopping board is to cover liberally with
Kosher salt and leave overnight. Scrape off with a cloth in the
morning to find the salt has absorbed all moisture to leave your board clean and dry.


4. This has to be the simplest way to open those annoying blister packs!



5. Use a cut potato to easily remove a broken light bulb

6. Use chalk to remove grease stains from clothes. Simply rub white
chalk on the affected area and wash as normal – the chalk will absorb
the grease and be washed away in the cycle.

1. To sharpen scissors, simply cut through sandpaper.


2. A very simple solution to get rid of furniture scratches!


3. Use rubber bands to help open a jar easily: place one around the jar
lid and another around the middle of the glass. The rubber provides
friction to prevent your hands from slipping.


4. To prevent your eyes watering while chopping onions, wipe the chopping
board with white vinegar (which won’t affect the taste of the onions)


5. Store bed sheets inside their pillowcases for easy storage and access


6. Drop a couple of denture cleaning tablets into the
toilet bowl at night to clean off stubborn stains.
But put the Dentures in a convenient glass near by..

Tips From The Laundry Room

Powder to You Clothes.
* You can get rid of a grease spot on fabric without cleaning the entire garment. Just sprinkle a little baking powder or talcum powder on the spot. Shake or brush the powder off after the grease has been absorbed.

Blood: Cut to the cleanup
* If you get a paper cut or small cut at work and end up with blood on your blouse, moisten the spot immediately with your own saliva. Then blot it with a clean cloth or paper napkin. That will prevent the stain from setting and you can wash it when you get home. Saliva contains digestive enzymes that break down protein and it is the protein that makes it hard to remove.

A-Salt that Bloodstain
* Blood stains need to be treated straight away. Another way to prevent staining is to soak a bloodstain in a solution of 1 cup of water and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Lipstick on your collar
* To rid lipstick stain on fabric, coat the problem area with hair spray. Let it sit for a couple of minutes, then carefully wi-pe off the excess spray and the lipstick. Follow up by laundering.

Sweat Stain
* Perspiration stains are tough, so tenderize them. Before you wash that sweat-stained shirt, dampen the stains and sprinkle meat tenderizer on them. Wash as usual.

Ink Stain
* Leaky pen in your pocket? check your hairspray if it contains alcohol use it. Alcohol acts as a solvent on ink. Apply it full force to the ink stain before laundering.

Juice Stain
* A Juice stain that is not treated immediately can be tough to get out. Try White vinegar. Pretreat the area and let it sit for 15 minutes then rub in a little laundry detergent before tossing it in with the rest of the wash.
