Handy Hints for Wednesday ~ 22

I think you all guessed I was having a little fun last week with it being April Fool’s day.  Today I have more serious hints for you.

Separate your good dishes by putting a coffee filter between each dish.

If you have a toe fungus problem use one part vinegar to one part warm water and soak your feet. This repeated over the course of a week will clear up your toenails.

To remove the smell of garlic, onions, or fish from a cutting board wash with lemon juice.

Poached fish will be firmer and whiter if you add lemon juice to the cooking liquid.

Feeling flat in the afternoon? Mix two teaspoons of Angostura bitters in a glass of tonic water and sip.  The mixture of the quinine in the tonic and the bark extracts in the bitters will refresh and revive you.
