Tips and Tricks

My sister forwarded me this list of home remedies for everything from cleaning to gardening. I haven’t tried all of them so if you have tried any of these let me know.

  1. Get Rid of Ants- Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it “home” and can’t digest so it ikills them.
  2. Take baby powder to the beach and apply before leaving, the sand will slide off.
  3. No more mosquitoes. Place a dryer sheet in your pocket and the smell repels the mosquitoes.
  4. Keep squirrels out of your garden by sprinkling cayenne pepper around the garden.
  5. Use hair conditioner to shave your legs. 
  6. Goodbye fruit flies: take a small glass fill it 1/2″ with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dishwashing liquid mix well. 
  7. Reheat Pizza, heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick pan on top of the stove, set heat to medium and heat until warm. Melts the cheese and keeps the crust crispy.
  8. Broken Glass: Use a dry cotton ball to pick up little broken glass pieces which grasps the small pieces we can’t see.
  9. Use a chalkboard eraser and when your window gets foggy just wipe away!
  10. Need to reopen a sealed envelope just place in the freezer for an hour and it will unseal.
