Animal Care: If you are having problems
with your puppy or dog chewing, I suggest using "Vicks Vapor Rub". Rub some of this onto the surface that you want your pet
to avoid... the smell of it usually keeps their sensitive noses far enough away that chewing isn't an option! I have used
this safely with my Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs for years! The Vapor Rub last longer than most other products, too. This keeps
from having to re-apply so often! Leigh Conner

Animal Control: Pour a little bleach on your outside trash in order to keep the animals away. Rita
Instead of buying ant killer. Purchase a box of saltine crackers. Crumble the cracker and sprinkle over the ant pile. The
salt in the cracker will make the ant explode. Vivian Lerma, TX

Burnt Tongue: If you
burn your tongue on something hot to eat (hot coffee or soup) put a teaspoon of sugar on your tongue and hold your tongue

really sure why this works, but it really does work! Mary, IN

to work everyday. Instead of buying the expensive packages of mayonnaise or mustard, I put a tablespoon in a snack bag so
the sandwiches won't get soggy. At lunchtime they cut the tip off of the corner of the snack bag and drizzle it on their bread.
Elaine Wallace, TN
To save energy I make sure that in the summer when the air conditioner is running the most during the day the pool filter
is running at night and in the winter when the heat is needed at night the pool filter is running during the day. This also
works with well with a jacuzzi. This is even more important if you have a load controller. I also cover my roof turbans during
the winter. They are designed to remove heat from the attic by spinning driven by rising heat. Since you are heating your
home it is wise to keep all of the heat inside that you can. There is a noticeable difference within a foot of the floor once
they are covered. No more cold feet! Dave, Arizona
Dentures: After removing your dentures (or other dental appliance)
soak in warm water overnight add a drop or 2 of bleach. Rinse well in the morning before brushing. Not only does it leave

Rash: Many years ago my son had a diaper rash and I was told this trick. Boil 3 or 4 outside (dark green) lettuce leaves in
enough water to cover them. After boiling the leaves drain the water into a jar or dish with a lid and throw the leaves out.
Use boiled juice when cool on baby' bottom, rash should be on the way to recovery in 24 hours or less. A local doctor had
this analyzed and still couldn't find out why it worked!

your dog instead of that expensive flea soap. Dawn works as well and is safe for your dog. Jimmy, MS

The Many Uses of Dryer Sheets: To keep the interior
of your vehicle, R.V, boat, and rooms/closets inside your house smelling fresh/clean, place one or two fabric softener dryer
sheets anywhere overnight. You can even use them to freshen your shoes, boots, suitcases, and handbags (especially while in
storage)! I've even crumpled a few up and strategically placed them "inside" silk plants making coming home each day "refreshing"!
These little wonders also remove static cling from just about everything! From the hemline of your skirt, to your television
and computer screens, to those new vertical blinds you just put up. They'll even help "discharge" the electrical charge that
builds up on those hard plastic office floormats. Sharelle Fry

and quicker to find what I need. Wendy Hamil, MO
Heartburn: 1 Tbls. of distilled vinegar will provide almost immediate
relief (within 5 mins) of heartburn for weeks. Jeremy Watson, NV
Hiccups: Take a spoonful of peanut butter
to get rid of the hiccups, believe me it works.
To get rid of hick ups take a teaspoon of Grape JELLY (NOT
jam). For infants, just dip your finger in the jelly and let them suck the jelly off your finger, for toddlers 1/4 teaspoon
and children 1/2 teaspoon. Adjust accordingly to fit your own needs. Joan Baranek
Homemade Flea Repellant: Orange peels
can help combat fleas and mosquitoes! Collect peels from citrus fruits and keep them frozen in a plastic bag until you have
collected about a half a pound of them. Boil the peels in one quart of water. Then allow the peels to sit until cool. Then
strain the peels and pour the left over fluid into a spray bottle and mist your dog before he goes outside. Mosquitoes hate
it, fleas die from it, and it is safe to use. You can also spray their bedding and all around the house for doggy odors as
well! It also neutralizes dog and cat urine odors. The active ingredient in citrus peels is its' natural pesticide. Melody
Ice Packs: For a quick ice pack, keep
a bag of green peas in the freezer (be sure to mark it so you can refreeze it...don't eat these peas). The peas in the bag
will conform to almost any body part and are not as messy as ice. Be sure to wrap the bag of peas in a towel since you don't
want to apply the cold directly to the surface of the skin. Apply 15 minutes on...15 minutes off. Put the bag back in the
freezer between applications. When you use it the next time just hit it on the counter to break the peas up to a loose state
again. Nancy Curtis, TX
To make a home made ice pack, take
equal parts of water and alcohol in a zip lock bag. Lie flat in freezer until needed. The mixture will be like
a really thick slushy. You can use small or large bags, both can be molded extremely easily.
Itchy Bug Bites: For chigger bites or
mosquito bites use preparation H ointment. It stops the bites from whelping up and the itching. Tammie Ward, MO
Fire Starters (Barbecues/Camp): Half-fill
each section of a cardboard egg carton with dryer lint; then pour melted wax over it and allow to the wax to harden. Cut apart
segments for fire starting. CAUTION: Do not use plastic foam egg cartons, they will not burn away and they give off toxic
fumes! Mary Thompson, Murfreesboro, TN

Kids: As a single mother of a 3 year
old boy, I know how hard it is to keep him amused on rainy or snowy days. Have housework to do? Forget it! I am always having
to answer the "mommy" call every few minutes. One particularly rainy day, I came up with a fun and mess free activity for
my son. My front door is a plain wooden one. I give my son his box of sidewalk chalk and some baby wipes (a wet rag will do
also). He can color on the door and it wipes off easily! This enables me to clean the house and lets him do something he normally
wouldn't be allowed to do. Katy Green, IL

Wash hair well with regular shampoo afterwards. G Freer, LA

have wet the bed and can't get the smell out, place 3 or 4 dryer sheets under the sheet on top of mattress. It covers the
odor (amazingly!) and smells like fresh laundry! Also works good on smoke smell. Tracey, KY
Mailing Boxes: Instead of writing over
a logo, using mailing labels, or wrapping over your box of Christmas goodies to go through the mail, turn your used box inside
out and tape/glue it back together. It's easier and nicer looking to use the clean surface of the inside of the box. Angela

have an above-ground swimming pool and are plagued with birds and all the mess that they make around the pool. Simply take
an old black belt and lay it beside the pool. Birds are afraid of the belt and what it looks like and will not come anywhere
near the pool. You have to try it to believe it, and it really works like a charm. To completely confuse the birds change
the shape occasionally, from straight to a slightly curved position around the pool. Ralph Tate, FL
All of us have a drawer full of cords - for the coffee pot, electric skillet, griddle, etc. Most of the time, they're a tangled
mess and hard to identify. I use an empty cardboard toilet paper tube for each cord. Simply insert the folded cord in the

tick's head gets stuck under skin, make a equal mix of honey and baking soda, mix, then warm(do not burn skin) and put on

many uses of WD-40 (this is not a commercial) Well, Who Knew...?
I had a neighbor who had bought a new pickup. I got
up very early one Sunday
morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of
this beige truck
(for some unknown reason). I went over, woke him up, and
told him the bad news. He was very upset and was trying to figure
to do probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open. Another
neighbor came out and told him
to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed
the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on
truck. I'm impressed! WD-40 who knew?
Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for a rust
solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was
created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket
Company. Its name comes from the project that was to find a "water
displacement" compound. They were successful
with the fortieth formulation,
thus WD-40. The Corvair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas
Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing
in WD-40 that would hurt you.
