Today I'd like to share with you a few secrets and helpful suggestions; from baking tips, simple cleaning, pet care and food hints to help make your everyday life just a little easier. Lets get started!
1.) Burn a candle close by when peeling or cutting onions, this stops the tears from flowing.
2.) Stop tomato based or other stains by rubbing the inside of plastic containers with vegetable
oil before placing food inside.
3.) WD-40 will remove sticky labels, just spray a little on the label, leave it on for a few minutes and the label will slide off.
4.) Remove bad oven odors left by oven cleaners by baking orange peels in the oven for a few minutes.
5.) Hard to clean pan? Put 1/2 cup baking soda in pan and fill with 1/2 cup water, boil until burnt particles float to the top.
6.) To keep cat liter smelling fresh, mix baby powder in with it. (Check with your vet)
7.) Problem with your pet scratching furniture? Place an orange or lemon peel around or rub the peel on to the surfaces of the area, cats and dogs do not like the smells of citrus.
8.) To get ink stains out of clothes, rub stain with a cotton ball soaked in eau de cologne.
9.) Turn plain flour into self-rising flour by adding 2 teaspoons of baking powder to each cup of flour.
