Handy Hints for Wednesday ~ 23

Eggs were on the menu on Monday and I start off with some eggie hints today.

Boiled eggs for breakfast? The water you boil your eggs in will acquire some calcium and other helpful minerals from the shells, when cooled it can be used as a liquid feed for your houseplants.

After cooking scrambled eggs, soaking your pan with hot water and a half cup of vinegar will clean up the pan easily while neutralizing that egg smell.

Need an emergency piping bag in a hurry? Use a re-sealable freezer bag with a corner cut off.

To remove ink spots from clothing, while the ink is wet, apply lemon juice liberally to the spot, and then wash the garment in a normal cycle with regular detergent using cold water

Wicker furniture should be cleaned by scrubbing with a stiff brush dipped in warm salt water/salt will help keep your wicker from turning yellow.

And finally….. if you need a lift…..

I found this while surfing the net the other day!
