    Lightbulb Interesting Cleaning Tips!

    A sealed envelope - Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a knife
    under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed. (hmmmmmm...)
    ============================================

    Use Empty toilet paper roll 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
    dishwashing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't refreeze.
    (wish I had known this for the last 40 years!)
    =================================================

    To remove old wax from a glass candleholder, put it in the freezer for a
    few hours. Then take the candleholder 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!)
    rubbing alcohol on paper towel.
    =================================================

    Whenever I purchase a box of S.O.S Pads, I 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, I finally decided that this would be much
    more economical. Now a box of S.O.S pads last me indefinitely! In fact, I
    have noticed that the scissors get sharpened this way!
    =================================================

    Blood stains on clothes? Not to worry! Just pour a little hydrogen peroxide
    on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood. Works every time!
    Now, where to put the body? LOL
    =================================================

    Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal 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.
    ================================================

    Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3
    hours prior to burning.
    ================================================

    To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag and add the
    flowers. Shake vigorously as the salt will absorb all the dust and dirt and
    leave your artificial flowers looking like new! Works like a charm!
    =================================================

    To easily remove burnt on food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two
    of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to a boil on
    stove top.
    ================================================

    Spray your TUPPERWARE with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato
    based sauces and there won't be any stains.
    ================================================

    Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will
    keep for weeks.
    ================================================

    When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the
    corn's natural sweetness.
    ================================================

    Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your
    forehead. The throbbing will go away.
    ================================================

    Don't throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future
    use in casseroles and sauces. Left over wine? What's that?
    ================================================

    To get rid of itch from mosquito bites, try applying soap on the area and
    you will experience instant relief.
    ================================================

    Ants, ants, ants everywhere .... Well, they are said to never cross a chalk
    line. So, get your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or wherever ants
    tend to march. See for yourself.
    ================================================

    Use air-freshener to clean mirrors. It does a good job
    and better still, leaves a lovely smell to the shine.
    ================================================

    When you get a splinter, reach for the scotch tape before resorting to
    tweezers or a needle. Simply put the scotch tape over the splinter, and then
    pull it off. Scotch tape removes most. Super glue works, too, just a drop.
    =====================================

    Now look what you can do with Alka Seltz. Clean a toilet. Drop in two
    Alka Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush and flush. The citric acid
    and effervescent action clean vitreous China.
    ================================================

    Clean a vase. To remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet,
    fill with water and drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets.
    ================================================

    Polish jewelry. Drop two Alka Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and
    immerse the jewelry for two minutes.
    =================================================

    Clean a thermos bottle. Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka
    Seltzer tablets, and let soak for an hour (or longer, if necessary).
    ================================================

    Unclog a drain. Clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka Seltzer tablets
    down the drain followed by a cup of Heinz White Vinegar. Wait a few minutes,
    and then run the hot water.

    Default Re: Interesting Cleaning Tips!

    спасибо.
    еще:
    если вы закапали свечей гладкую поверхность стола или еще чего-нибудь, то отодрать воск можно с помощью деревяной лопатки, с которой вы жарите яичницу.
    Отмыть воск от подсвечников можно опустив ети подсвечники в кипяток и капнув туда фейри (или любого другого моющего средства для посуды). Известно, что воск - ето жир, а горячая вода и фейри быстро растворят его. Потом просто вымыть подсвечники, как нормальную посуду.
    Что бы ванная комната или туалет были всегда чистые, положите там одноразовые пропитаные санитарные салфетки (типа клорокс) и после пользования туалетом, протрите всю сидушку и бочок, так же можно протереть зеркало, столик. Займет меньше минуты, зато всегда будет чисто.
    Не знаю как некоторые, а я работаю ведьмой (ц)
    Жутко довольная собой! :bis:

    Default Полезные советы.

    А помните, раньше во многих журналах была темка - "Полезные советы".
    Вообщем тема про маленькие хитрости из жизни. Всё равно, либо это стройка, кулинария, любовь или бизнес. Короче делитесь, кто что знает.
    Начну первым:Если вбивая гвоздь в тонкую рейку, хочешь чтобы она не треснула, обрежь острый конец у гвоздя и забивай тупым.
    Кто следующий?
    Я человек культурный: со мной поздоровались - и я здороваюсь,
    меня послали - и я пошлю.
