The Sticky Fixer-Velcro

Have you ever had a picture that walked on the wall or a breakable that inches too close to the edge of the shelf? Make it stay put with Velcro! Cut an appropriate size and stick one side to fixed surface and one the the one that "walks". The uses are limitless when you start thinking about it. How about rug that move. Hanging lightweight pictures-you get the idea!

Putting the"Stain-less" Into Steel

There are so many appliances now days that are stainless steel and just as many products "they" say you should buy to keep them shiny. Plain old white vinegar will do that. Just put some on a paper towel and wipe the fingerprints and whatever away.

Tricky nick fix

Have a nick in your wood furniture. Who doesn't unless you have all plastic furnishings. A crayola crayon will fix it. Just pick the color that matches and color it in.

No Scrub White Sink

I love a white sink but not scrubbing. Put a paper towel or two or three depending on the size of your sink and pour bleach on them. Let it sit while you watch your soaps. Then take up the towels and admire your white sink.

The Dry (supposed to be wet)Swiffer blues

Does your wet Swiffer pad go dry way before you are finished? OH yeah. Spray it with Fantastic or your cleaner of choice and Swiffer on! Too bad we have to buy their product and have to improve on it too.

It's not just for tacos

Do you have some extra Taco Bell hot sauce around? You know you do! It will take the tarnish off copper. If you have old pennies that need shining, just squeeze it on! Wonder what it does to our stomach.

Foiled Again

Line your oven, burner pans and toaster oven bottom with foil. Tossing the foil away sure beats scouring after a spill over. Caution. Do not foil a convection oven. I learned the hard way that the foil will melt.
