Handy Hints for Wednesday ~ 17

If it is Wednesday then it mut be time again for Handy Hints.

You will be pleased to know that I have sorted myself out this week and the only Toyboy I am chasing today is Tobias my laptop!  So down to business in earnest then with 5 more good ideas.

Wool carpets. A burning cigarette or a spark from an open fire only leaves a small scorch mark. Remove this mark with a brush or rub it with a coin.

If a drawer is stiff to open or close, remove it and rub the ledge or runners with either a bar of soap or a candle.  Replace the drawer and it should move freely.

To Hang Posters on the wall just put a little dab of non gel tooth paste on each corner of the poster and a few in between on the edges. Put your poster up and it will stick like magic. When you get ready to remove it will come off easily with no holes.

Unwaxed dental floss can also be used to truss poultry or to tie up rolled pieces of meat or bacon in cooking.

And finally as they say….

White vinegar diluted in warm to hot water, makes an excellent mouth wash

    We learn something new every day. Pity I don’t always remember what day it is! 🙄

    It wouldn’t be Wednesday without learning a new use vinegar. 😉

    I wish I’d known about the toothpaste when my kids were younger and posters decorated their rooms.

    Thanks for the tips! 🙂

    I will now be telling all the teachers I come into contact with about the poster trick…some headteachers won’t allow the use of sticky rubbery substances.

    It might make classrooms smell sweeter!….

    Yet another use for dental floss!

    @Judy – I have no problem with the vinegar and it leaves my mouth feeling very fresh.

    @Annb – 😆

    @Maureen – I could fill every wek with vinegar tips but we do need variety!

    @Magpie – When I worked for a computer company we were not allowed use Blutack either.
