Handy Hints for Wednesday ~ 27

A couple of days with bright sunshine brings a warm glow to many a heart.  On the off chance that it continues I’ll begin with a summer-time tip for days by the sea.

To soothe a jellyfish sting and relieve itching douse the area with vinegar.

Who asked about mosquito bites?  To relieve the itch, apply hand soap to the area for instant relief.

Non gel toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns.

To prevent wicker furniture turning yellow, clean it by scrubbing with a stiff brush dipped in warm salt water.  The salt will do the trick.

To remove food smells from plastic storage boxes, fill with warm water and add a little dry mustard.  Let it soak for an hour or more and then wash as normal.
