when cooking foods that cause gas, add 1/4 teas of vinegar,
and 1/4 teas of lemon juice.

For years I fought with the sock Gremlin who always removed just one sock from the dryer. My solution. Put the paired socks in my dresser and the socks who are missing their mates into a special hamper. Once a month I dump the hamper out and pair up the socks. Of course I have some socks that have not been paired in ten years. But slowly, I have started to use them for cleaning. Of course as soon as I do the Gremlin returns their mates.

What geat tips....

here is one for fingernails:

using fingernail polish I found after time even when
you have removed it with finger nail polish, you will see your nail become discolored. Same for
toenails.

Remove polish first before doing this.

twice a month I do this.

l large lemon
small bowl
finger nail file ememry board

cut lemon in half, squeeze juice into bowl.
with half of lemon, rub on fingernails.
one for the left, one for the right.

then soak fingernails in juice for about ten minutes.

when done wash fingernails and hands.
put lotion on cuticles, rubbing it in good to
soften them.
After doing this a number of times the discoloration
will disappear.
Give your nails a rest from putting finger nail polish on for a few weeks.

Always apply a clear undercoat before applying finger nail polish.

Ridges on finger nails.....
With the use of an emery board, file ridges across,
and then up and down gently. Giving your nails a
soft look. This will also help in taking off any
residue left on nals.

After the fabric softener sheets have gone through the dryer, I use them to clean the computer screen and tv. Most of the chemicals are out of them, but they still have some anti-static property. Recycling feels good.

Okay do we use the same coffee filter as a baking cup after we've cleaned the computer screen? Just kidding. Actually these are very useful tips. Thanks

you are welcome for the tips.

here is one that they do on the cookies you buy
in the store with a sugar topping.

before baking your cookies, scramble two eggs in bowl,
with a brush, brush each cookie with the egg.
then sprinkle sugar on top, and then bake them.
don't forget to use parchment paper.

you can also do the above on cakes.


Baking bread:

Often times when home made bread is baked, when it
cools forms a hard crust. I for one don't like
hard crusts.

take a stick of margarine or butter, and rub all over
top and sides while hot. Soft crust :)

To sharpen knives.....use sand paper......

Use coffee cup filters to clean your comp. screens,
use as baking cups, remember to trim the tops.

I have a couple of tid-bits I would like to share:

1. Dark Circles under the eyes are often inherited.
Hard to get rid of, and end up costing you a
fortune trying out different cosmetics for it.

Try this, it does work, and only costs you
your time.

Take a teaspoon and put it in the freezer until
very cold, I always have one in their.
Place under you eyes on the dark circles,
for a few sec. i usually do 45 or so.
They will disappear until next time you see
them.

2. You can store celery in your refridgerator for
up to three months, by doing this.

take celery out of the package, wash, cut off ends
and wrap tightly in foil.

3. Cleaning plastic can be done by, trying these
suggestions.

Use automatic dish washing detergent.
Pour some into a wash basin mix with hot
water and let soak for about an hour.
If not cleaned add some clororx about
1/2 cup let soak a half hour.

Rinse with hot water, and then wash in
hot sudsy water by using your dawn or
other dish detergent. Rinse out with hot
water and let air dry.

3. Use parchment paper when ever you can to avoid
burning of your baking. Especially cookies.
