    Want your hard boiled eggs to peel easily? Add a dollop of cooking oil to the water. The shells will come right off,it doesn’t affect the taste at all.

    After the dryer-sheet method has failed, to soothe the itch make a paste of meat tenderizer and a little water, apply to bites. This also gets excellent results used on painful stings, including those from bumble bees and scorpions! (Personal experience.)You don’t have to use Adolph’s brand meat tenderizer but it has to have the same active ingredients.

    Thank you! I tried baking soda per someone’s suggestion, and it didn’t work at all. Gonna try the oil. 🙂

    are you cold? go to your closet and put on a sweater, or grab a big blanket. amazingly the opposite is true if you are hot. take nelly’s advice…take off your clothes.

    Got fruit flies? Put about an inch of apple cider vinegar in a glass and add 1 to 2 drops of liquid dish soap to the glass, give a gentle stir. It attracts the fruit flies and once they land in the vinegar they can’t get back out. Change daily until the problem is resolved.

    Want to do ‘the wave’ at baseball game on your own terms? Here are a couple ways! Simply lift one finger when the wave passes. Or, simply do ‘the wave’ action after the wave passes you. Remember, the longer you wait, the better!

    Instead of using Alka-Seltzer tablets in the toilet bowl, I buy the cheapest store-brand denture-cleaning tablets for the same purpose. These also work well for cleaning inside flower vases, hummingbird feeders and bongs. Many similar uses.
