Check Out These Tips!


I got this in an email today…and considering how many of us have ant issues…I thought I’d post it…I like all the other great tips in here too! Check them out!

Ant Problem:

Ants hate cucumbers.
Keep the skin of cucumbers near the place or ant hole.

To get pure and clean ice :

Boil water first before freezing.
To make the mirror shine:
Clean with sprit

To remove chewing gum from clothes:

Keep the cloth in the freezer for an hour.

To whiten white clothes:

Soak white clothes in hot water with a slice of lemon for 10 minutes

To give a shine to hair :
Add one teaspoon of vinegar to hair, then wash hair.

To get maximum juice out of lemons :

Soak lemons in hot water for one hour, and then juice them.

To avoid smell of cabbage while cooking:

Keep a piece of bread on the cabbage in the vessel while cooking.

To avoid tears while cutting onions:

Chew gum.

To boil potatoes quickly:
Skin one potato from one side only before boiling.

To remove ink from clothes :
Put toothpaste on the ink spots generously and let it dry completely,
then wash.

To skin sweet potatoes quickly :
Soak in cold water immediately after boiling.

To get rid of m

ice or rats :

sprinkle black pepper in places where you find mice or rats.
They will run away.

Chinese Proverb:
'When someone shares something of value with you and you

benefit from it,
You have a obligation to share it with others.'

So..., pass it on!

I have managed to inflame my injured arm, and cannot spend much time doing anything with it as it has been super painful. (not sure why, but it is super duper sore!)

I will be back with bells on in a couple days. Just giving the old gal a little break when I can. lol (grammie…you can stop laughing any time now!)

I will see you all here for Fertilizer Friday…if not before!


*)*)*)…I wish I had as much talent for Drama as you three do…WOW…but…alas I don’t…so I will just sit back and watch the show! Lucky me it’s interactive hey??? ROFLMAO! MWUAH!
