Friday Fun – How Many Of These 10 Things Did You Know?

  1. For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: get warm water and put Dawn dish washing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won’t refreeze.
  2. 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. 
  3. Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped in baking soda. Comes off with little effort
  4. Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely light scent in each room when the light is turned on – no I haven’t done this!. 
  5. Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3 hours prior to burning. 
  6. Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
  7. When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corn’s natural sweetness
  8. Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your forehead.   The throbbing will go away.
  9. Don’t throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice= cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces. Left over wine? What’s that? :)
  10. To get rid of itch from mosquito bites, try applying soap on the area and you will experience instant relief. 

Don’t laugh I only knew about number 7.
