Some I use, some I know, and some are new to me. Hope some are new to you. ..........

> Grandma's Tricks

> =================================================
> For icy door steps in freezing temperatures:get warm water and put Dawn dishwashing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't > refreeze.
> =================================================
> To remove old wax from a glass candleholder, put it in the freezer for a few hours. Then
> take > the candleholder out and turn it upside down. The wax will fall out.
> =========================================
> Crayon marks on walls? A damp rag, dipped in baking soda. Comes off
> with little effort (elbow grease that is!).
> =================================================
> Whenever I purchase a box of Brillo or S.O.S Pads, I immediately take a pair of scissors and cut
> each pad into halves. After years of having to throw away rusted and unused and smelly pads, I finally decided that this would be much more economical. =================================================
> Blood stains on clothes? Not to worry! Just pour a little hydrogen peroxide on a cloth and
> proceed to wipe off every drop of blood. Works every time!
> =================================================
> Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and 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.
> =================================================
> 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.
> ===============================================
> Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will smell freshly washed
> for weeks to come. You can also do this with towels and linen.
> ================================================
> Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3 hours prior to burning.
> ================================================
> To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag and add the flowers. Shake vigorously. Salt will absorb all the dust and dirt and have your artificial flowers looking like new!
>==============================================
> Spray your TUPPERWARE with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato based sauces
> and there won't be any stains.
> ================================================
> Wrap Celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
> ================================================
> When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corn's natural
> sweetness.
> ================================================
> Cure for Headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will > go away.
> ================================================
> Don't throw out all that Leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
> ================================================
> Ants, ants, ants everywhere .... Well, they are said to never cross a chalk line. So, get
> your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or wherever ants tend to march. See for
> yourself.
> ================================================
> Use air-freshener to clean mirrors. It does a good job and better still, leaves a lovely smell
> to the shine.
> ================================================
> When you get a Splinter, reach for the scotch tape before resorting to tweezers or a needle.
> Simply put the scotch tape over the splinter, and then pull it off.
> Scotch tape removes most splinters painlessly and easily.
> =====================================


> Now look what you can do with Alka Seltzer.
> ================================================
> Clean a toilet. Drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush and flush. The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous China.
> ================================================
> Clean a vase. To remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet, fill with water and drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets.
> ================================================
> Polish jewelry. Drop two Alka Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and immerse the jewelry for two minutes.
> =================================================
> Clean a thermos bottle. Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka Seltzer tablets, and let soak for an hour (or longer, if necessary).
> ================================================
> Unclog a drain. Clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka Seltzer tablets down the drain followed by a cup of White Vinegar. Wait a few minutes, and then run the hot water.
> ===============================================



Do your friends a favor. Pass this timely (and some not-so-timely) information on to a friend!
I just did. Makes you wonder about ingesting Alka Seltzer, doesn't it?
