Helpful Hints

I bought a small pocket calendar with several helpful hints each month which I've enjoyed. I thought I'd share a few with you.

1. Use rubbing alcohol as a permanent marker remover. Pour on a cotton ball and rub on stains.

2. Use onions as a basement deodorizer. Cut the onion in half and put on a plate and leave overnight.

3. Remove gunk from your iron with dryer sheets. With low setting, rub iron over the dryer sheet.

4. Use coaster under jars of messy honey, jam or olive oil.

5. Salt and lemon juice mixed together remove mildew stains.

6. Use a muffin tin to serve condiments at an outdoor party.

7. A frozen saturated sponge in a Ziplock bag makes an icepack that won't drip.

8. Use dryer sheets to wipe down a smelly, wet dog for a springtime scent.

9. Pour a bit of vinegar into your wash with detergent. It brightens colors and eliminates odors.

10. To get rid of the bouquet residue at the bottom of a vase, fill vase with water and add two anti-acid tablets.

Kind of interesting. I haven't tried them all so if you do, I'd love to hear if it worked. Perhaps it will give you more time to do what you love -- if it's reading, I have a new book released in April - Cherry Wood Place. Give it a try in your spare time!

Happy Reading!
