Tomorrow's forecast calls for a beautiful spring day—perfect to go sleeveless—but you have that unsightly arm bruise! What to do: Spread a thin layer of blackstrap molasses on a piece of brown paper (grocery bag) and apply the molasses side to the bruise. Then bind it in place with medical tape and leave it there for a few hours. Your skin color should go from black and blue to looking much more normal—maybe even free and clear!

Simmering up a pot of chicken soup is perfect for unpredictably chilly spring days. The best-known way to reduce the fat is to refrigerate the soup overnight and then skim the surface the next day. But what if you want to eat your soup today? Remove the pot from the heat when the soup is done and let it sit till slightly warm…then put six ice cubes into the pot—they’ll float and act like fat magnets. In seconds, grease will solidify around the cubes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fatty ice.

Ouch! Do you have a nagging toothache? And the dentist can’t see you till when? Calm the throbbing with nature’s painkiller—cloves. Gently apply a small amount of clove oil (found in health-food stores) to the aching area with a cotton swab or a bit of tissue. Or if you can bear to chew and don’t want to purchase a special batch of clove oil, take a whole clove and dip it in honey (which has natural antiseptic properties), then chew the clove slowly, rolling it around the aching tooth. This releases the essential oil and eases the pain.

Make a paste by combining one tablespoon salt with one-half tablespoon lemon juice. Rub this abrasive mixture on rough and tough skin areas such as elbows, feet and knees until mostly smooth (and not too red). Wash the paste off with cool water. This is a great way to use up a lemon that’s losing its luster.

If your hands have an unpleasant, lingering smell from bleach or any other strong, chemical cleaner, wash them with lukewarm water and some non-gel toothpaste. The mildly abrasive consistency of the paste will scrub off the nasty scent molecules from your skin’s surface.

Keep a pulled cork on the end of a corkscrew, especially if the corkscrew is loose in a drawer with other things that you often look for…and especially if cleaning and organizing your junk drawer is just not going to happen!

When making meatloaf, place one or two slices of uncooked bacon on the bottom of the pan beneath the loaf…then cook the loaf according to your recipe. Not only will this add a little extra flavor, but it will also keep the meatloaf from sticking, making cleanup (and leftover collecting) a breeze!

Once you open a bag of flour, it’s on its way to tasting stale. OK, it should keep just fine for a few months, but if you transfer the flour from the bag to an airtight container and keep it in a cool place, it will stay fresh for YEARS. The coolest place, the freezer, will keep it super-fresh as well as bug-free.

If you are rearranging furniture or moving it so you can clean the floor, put old socks—the heavier, the better—on the furniture legs. Or cut off the bottom halves from clean milk or juice cartons and place the legs in them. The thick socks or the smooth, waxy carton bottoms will protect the floor from scratches—just make sure there’s no grit under them—and they make the furniture a lot easier to move.

Did you know that your hair grows fastest when you’re in love? It’s probably because your hormones are jumping for joy. If you want to give all that extra hair some body and bounce, add one teaspoon of champagne to two tablespoons of your regular shampoo. Work it into your hair, washing and rinsing as usual. (You can also rinse with a bit of champagne after shampooing.)

The bubbly should help make your hair livelier, and the tartaric acid in the champagne will bring out your hair’s natural highlights, especially if you are blonde.

If you have very dry winter hands and commercial lotions aren’t cutting it, puncture a vitamin E gel capsule, squish out the oil and rub it on your hands. Do this twice a day to help heal the painful cracks that often come with cold weather.

A great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, dietary fiber and good-for-you nutrients, avocados taste great, especially in guacamole and especially at Super Bowl parties! This version has a secret ingredient (lime zest!) that gives it a tangy twist. For best results, prepare this dip just before serving.

Guacamole with Diced Tomatoes
3 ripe avocados, insides scooped out and mashed
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño chile
3 tablespoons minced onions, optional
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 pinch lime zest
5 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Coarse salt
Combine the mashed avocado, tomatoes, jalapeño, onions, lime juice, lime zest, cilantro and mix until well blended. Add salt to taste. Makes 6 servings.

Put tired-looking cut flowers in a closet for an hour or so in the daytime. When you bring them out, they will perk up when exposed to the light of day. (Obviously, don’t try this at night!)

When you need on-the-spot smarts, put your index finger on the Renzhong (the acupressure point in the middle of your philtrum, which is the spot between your nose and upper lip). Press in for 30 seconds. Experts in Traditional Chinese Medicine suggest using this technique to increase alertness, clarity and focus. They believe that putting pressure on this point accesses nerves which carry signals to the brain. We know that it works for us!

An hour before popping corn (freshly popped is always the best), sprinkle a little warm water on the kernels. Or keep your popcorn kernels in the freezer. Either way—warm water or freezer—your popcorn will be fluffier and have fewer duds.

If there’s a wax buildup on your leather furniture, rub it with stale beer…or a solution made from ¼ cup of distilled white vinegar combined with ½ cup of water. Then wash the leather with saddle soap (available at tack stores where saddles and other equine supplies are sold, as well as some shoe-repair stores) and water. Complete the job by buffing the upholstery with a soft cloth to bring out the leather’s shine.

If you want to separate eggs, do it as soon as you take them out of the fridge. They’re easier to separate when they’re cold.

And here’s a clever way to do it. Buy a little funnel. Place the funnel in a glass, then crack the egg over it. The egg white will glide into the glass and the yolk will stay in the funnel.

Don’t throw out your stale bread. To make it fresh again, spray with a bit of water or milk and wrap it in aluminum foil. Put it in a 350°F oven for about 8 minutes, and the bread should taste as though it just came out of the oven…for the first time.

For any species, if the tree is fresh, the needles will stay on the branch and not fall off if you touch them. If you’re buying a balsam fir, gently bend a needle between your thumb and forefinger. If the tree is fresh, the needle will break. If you’re buying a pine tree, the needle should not break if the tree is fresh.

The first time you water your tree, use hot water—about 80°F. Add 2 ounces of antibacterial mouthwash to the residual water in the base stand to prevent the growth of any unwanted bacteria, which can block the tree’s ability to drink.

If you are using any citrus fruit in your holiday recipes, consider saving the shell to use as a centerpiece. This simple idea is attractive and smells good, too.

Cut a citrus fruit (lemon, lime, orange, etc.) in half. Remove the pulp for cooking and put a votive candle in the middle of the shell. Surround the candle with cranberries to hold it in place. Use several oranges, grapefruits, lemons or limes as a centerpiece, or you can space them out around the table.

Sometimes the task of cleaning your house can seem daunting. But then again, thinking about doing it actually can feel worse than the task itself. Consider it this way: The repetitive action of vacuuming…dusting…or even cleaning windows can lull you into a peaceful state and even relieve stress. Let your mind wander as you move around your home. And after an hour or so, you just might find that the time moved along pleasantly and, in the process, you have accomplished something!

If you aren’t getting enough shower power, it may be that mineral deposits (hard-water buildup) are clogging the showerhead.

If the showerhead is not all metal—or if you cannot detach it from the pipe—pour about 1 cup of distilled white vinegar into a small, leak-proof plastic bag. Put the bag over the showerhead and secure it in place with a thick rubber band or piece of string. Let it stand overnight. In the morning, remove the bag, scrub the head with an old toothbrush, rinse with clean water and enjoy your power shower.

To prevent the juice from oozing out of a pie and making a mess in the oven, stand a piece of uncooked hollow pasta (such as penne or rigatoni or large elbow macaroni) in the middle of the pie while it’s baking. The trapped steam will escape, and your pie insides stay put.

Here’s a simple way to make sure your pot roast is tender and juicy. Add 2 teabags (without the strings or tabs) of black Pekoe tea to the pot and cook as usual. Remove the teabags when the roast is done

To dissolve foot pain after shopping all day, add one cup of apple cider vinegar to a basin (or two plastic shoe boxes) filled halfway with lukewarm water. Then soak your feet for at least 15 minutes. The aches and pains of store-hopping should melt away.

In addition to (or instead of) buying a microfiber dust cloth, recycle old pairs of cotton socks or gloves and use them to dust. Old, cut-up cotton T-shirts and discarded shoulder pads also make good dust rags. Snagged pantyhose and used fabric-softener sheets are excellent lint-free dust collectors. And they’re all washable.

Tired of chamomile to calm your nerves? Try a soothing cup of thyme tea. Place a teaspoon of the dried herb in a glass or ceramic cup and add just-boiled water. Let steep for five minutes and strain. “Thyme” was originally called “wild time” because it was thought to be an aphrodisiac.

Don’t try this with sheer silks or delicates that can snag on the aluminum foil.

If you are cooking a stew, soup or sauce and think you’ve over salted it, add a potato. Peel a raw potato, cut it into about 6 pieces and put them in the pot for the last 10 minutes your dish needs to cook. As the potato softens, it will absorb some of the salt. When the dish is finished cooking, discard the potato.

Here’s one way to help prevent slipping on concrete steps, especially when they’re icy or wet. Mix ½ cup of clean sand into a can of paint, and paint the concrete steps with it. The sand will offer some traction. Or consider painting the steps white so that they’re easier to see on dark nights.

If you want to find a new fragrance but get overwhelmed by all the choices at the perfume counter, take a few sample cards of the scents that you like. At home, brew some unflavored, regular or decaf coffee. In between sniffs of each fragrance, cleanse your nose’s palate by smelling the used coffee grounds. That way, you’ll be able judge each perfume sample on its own merit without the scents blending together.

To remove old polish and dirt from your fine wood furniture, place 2 bags of black tea (such as Pekoe) in 1 quart of water and bring it to a boil. Once the tea cools to room temperature, dampen a cloth with the solution and wipe the furniture. Buff dry with a soft cloth.

Right now—no matter what the weather is in your part of the country—put a coat of floor wax on your snow shovel. The wax will help prevent a metal shovel from rusting, and when it comes time to use it, the snow will glide on and slide off.

If you clean your garden in autumn and find some unripe tomatoes, pull out the plants—roots and all. Shake off the dirt and hang the plants upside down in your basement or garage. The tomatoes will ripen on the vine. Think of it, fresh tomatoes at Thanksgiving!

Baked apples are a delicious, healthy dessert, but sometimes built-up pressure in the apple's core makes the apple explode.

You can prevent exploding apples in two ways:
Remove a half-inch of peel around the middle of the apple before you bake it.
Or make 8 shallow slits around the apple before baking it. They allow steam to escape and prevent the peel from splitting.

You can also sprinkle the apple's bare midriff (or the 8 slits) with lemon juice to stop the breakdown of proteins that can cause a mealy texture.

Here's something we've tried on really tough stains and it's worked two out of three times. Denture cleanser! It promises to dissolve tough stains. True, they don't necessarily mean food stains on clothing. But if you like those odds and you have a stained garment, it's worth a shot! Get a clean container such as a plastic bucket or plastic shoebox, fill it with warm water and drop in 2 or 3 denture cleansing tablets. Leave the garment soaking for about 15 minutes—the same amount of time recommended for soaking dentures. When the time is up, launder as usual.

Many people find this simple form of meditation eases stress and anxiety, and it also has a positive effect on your blood pressure and your heart rate.

Choose a word that you find calming and relaxing. If there's one that ends with an "m" sound or an "n" sound, use it. Some examples are home, charm, tame, dream.

Sit in a comfortable chair, close your eyes and relax your body. Say that word to yourself each time you exhale. Do this for 15 minutes every day. You may want to try it twice a day, if you find it especially beneficial.

Instead of buying a special shampoo, get an aloe vera plant. Before you go to bed, cut off a piece of the lowest leaf. Peel off the skin and squeeze the gel on your hair and into your scalp. Cover your hair with a bandanna or scarf and sleep with your hair covered.

The next morning, do not use shampoo to wash your hair. Instead, foam up the aloe vera gel. This treatment is good for your hair and can, surprisingly, help you get rid of dandruff quickly.

Do you hate biting down on an unpopped popcorn kernel? Ouch! Here's a way to prevent it. After you've popped the corn and it has cooled, transfer it to a resealable plastic bag. Cut a small hole in one bottom corner of the bag, and shake it over the sink—the duds (unpopped kernels) should fall out.

If you have a coffee grinder that's occasionally used for spices, be sure to clean out every morsel of spice before putting coffee into it. You can clean the grinder by grinding 2 or 3 pieces of plain wheat bread. Taste the last piece of ground bread to make sure there is no trace of the spice.

Use an old toothbrush to scrub a little bit of white, non-gel toothpaste on your white leather shoes. Wipe off any excess.

If the toothpaste didn't work on those stubborn scuff marks, cover them with correction fluid and polish the shoes to even out the color.

If your garden hose has sprung several leaks and is beyond repair, recycle it by poking additional holes into it and turning it into a sprinkler (also called a "soaker hose") for your lawn or garden.

You can also cut up an old hose and use it to brace newly planted trees—it will protect their bark.

You can prevent cats from using a children's sandbox as their outdoor litter box—just pour distilled white vinegar around the box every month or so.

If you've had sick plants, your garden tools may also be infected. Kill any problem bacteria by washing the tools thoroughly with soap and warm water. Wear rubber gloves.

If you want a stronger solution to sanitize your tools, soak them in 1 gallon of water mixed with ¾ cup of bleach. Rinse the tools thoroughly with plain water before using them again.

Don't forget to wash your gloves, gardening shoes and any other clothes that may have had contact with the ailing plants.

Is it hard to read the faded markings on your measuring cup? Carefully repaint the lines and numbers on the outside with bright red nail polish.

If you've gotten a lot of wonderful berries this summer, you may want to freeze some.

Here's how to prevent the frozen berries from squishing and sticking together.

Spread them on an ungreased cookie sheet and cover the sheet with plastic wrap. Freeze the berries for about 20 minutes, until they're solid. Transfer them to a plastic freezer bag, and seal it closed with as little air in it as possible.

If you have sweet cream that's just starting to turn sour, bring back the sweetness by adding a pinch of baking soda.

Tacos can be messy to eat, but not if you use a coffee filter as a holder. Once you try it, we're sure you'll agree…it's neat.

Did you wake up with that sore throat feeling? Add 1 teaspoon of dried sage to a cup of boiling water. Steep for 3 to 5 minutes, strain and gargle with it. Try it again at bedtime

To shorten potato-baking time, scrub the potato skins well, puncture and put each potato in a muffin tin cup. Be sure to fill any empty muffin compartments halfway with water to prevent the tin from smoking or warping.

You may find that children's clothes or work clothes often test the endurance of cotton thread.

Use unwaxed dental floss to sew the buttons and they pass the endurance test.

In a plastic squeeze bottle, combine one part liquid dish detergent with one part distilled white vinegar and three parts water. Shake it a few times before using. The detergent cuts the grease, the white vinegar disinfects and helps clean, and the water acts as detergent-extender…making it last longer.

If you need to give or take a liquid medicine, be sure to use a measuring cap or dosing spoon. Why? Kitchen teaspoons and tablespoons vary in size, which means you get an incorrect dosage.

If you want to get your white summer clothing looking fresh again, try this.

In a basin of just-boiled water, add the juice of a small lemon. Let your white clothes soak for at least 30 minutes, then launder them as usual.
