Did you know - 1

A sealed envelope
Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a knife under the flap.
The envelope can then be resealed.
Use empty toilet paper rolls to store appliance cords.
It keeps them neat and you can write on the roll what appliance it belongs to.
For icy door steps in freezing temperatures get warm water and put dawn dish washing liquid in it.
Pour it all over the steps.
They won't refreeze.
To remove old wax from a glass candle holder, put it in the freezer for a few hours.
Then take the candle holder out and turn it upside down.
The wax will fall out.
Crayon marks on walls?
This worked wonderfully!
A damp rag, dipped In baking soda.
Comes off with little effort (elbow grease that is!).
Permanent marker on appliances/counter tops
(like store receipt BLUE!) use rubbing alcohol on a paper towel.
Whenever you purchase a box of S.O.S or wire wool pads,
Immediately take a pair of scissors and cut each pad into halves.
After years of having to throw away rusted and unused and smelly pads
Now a box of S.O.S pads lasts much longer
In fact, you might notice that the scissors get 'sharpened'' this way!
Blood stains on Clothes?
Just pour a little hydrogen peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood..
Works every time!
Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal strokes for inside windows.
This way you can tell which side has the streaks.
Straight vinegar will get outside windows really clean.
Don't wash windows On a sunny day.
They will dry too quickly and will probably streak
Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely
light scent in each room when the light is turned on.
Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will smell freshly washed for weeks to come.
You can also do this with towels and linen.
