Handy Hints

Did you know:

  • To get rid of itch from mosquito bites - try applying soap on the area and you will experience instant relief. 
  • When boiling corn on the cob - add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the Corn's' natural sweetness  
  • Spray your TUPPERWARE with nonstick cooking spray before pouring In tomato based sauces and there won't be any stains.  
  • Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3 Hours prior to burning.  
  • Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside, horizontal For inside windows. This way you can tell which side has the streaks. Straight vinegar will get outside windows really clean. Don't wash windows On a sunny day. They will dry too quickly and will probably streak.  
  •  Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped In baking soda. Comes off with little effort (elbow grease that is!).  
  • Use Empty toilet paper roll to store appliance cords. It keeps them neat and you can write on the roll what appliance it belongs to.  
  • To remove old wax from a glass candle holder put it in the freezer for a few hours. Then take the candle holder out and turn it upside down. The Wax will fall out.
