Default Household Tips

I didn't see a thread started about household tips, but I have some great ones, so I thought I would put them in here.

1. Drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve
headache pain almost immediately -- without
the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional
"pain relievers."

2. Did you know that Colgate toothpaste makes
an excellent salve for burns?

3. Before you head to the drugstore for a high-
priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals,
try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids
peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.

4. Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1
Tablespoon of horseradish in cup of olive oil.
Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it
as a massage oil, for instant relief for aching

5. Sore Throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with
1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times
a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

6. Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer.
Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and
drink it at the onset of the symptoms.
Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract
infections almost instantly even though the
product was never advertised for this use.

7. Eliminate puffiness under your eyes..... All
you need is a dab of preparation H, carefully
rubbed into the skin, avoiding the eyes. The
hemorrhoid ointment acts as a vasoconstrictor,
relieving the swelling instantly.

8. Honey remedy for skin blemishes... Cover
the blemish with a dab of honey and place a
Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria,
keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing
Works overnight.

9. Listerine therapy for toenail fungus... Get
rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your
toes in Listerine mouthwash. The powerful
antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy

10. Easy eyeglass protection... To prevent the
screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small
drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear nail polish to the
threads of the screws before tightening them.

11. Coca-Cola cure for rust... Forget those
expensive rust removers. Just saturate an abrasive
sponge with Coca Cola and scrub the rust stain.
The phosphoric acid in the coke is what gets
the job done.

12. Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer...
If menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets
get in your home and you can't find the insecticide,
try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground

13. Smart splinter remover ... just pour a drop of
Elmer's Glue all over the splinter, let dry, and peel
the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the
dried glue.

14. Hunt's tomato paste boil cure ... cover the boil
with Hunt's tomato paste as a compress. The acids
from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the
boil to a head.

15. Balm for broken blisters . To disinfect a
broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine...
a powerful antiseptic.

16. Heinz vinegar to heal bruises ... Soak a cotton
ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for
1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and
speeds up the healing process.

17. Kills fleas instantly Dawn dish washing liquid
does the trick. Add a few drops to your dog's bath
and shampoo the animal thoroughly.
Rinse well to avoid skin irritations. Good-bye fleas.

18. Rainy day cure for dog odor .... Next time your
dog comes in from the rain, simply wipe down the
animal with Bounce or any dryer sheet, instantly
making your dog smell springtime fresh.

19. Eliminate ear mites ... All it takes is a few
drops of Wesson corn oil in your cat's ear. Massage
it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat daily for
3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the
mites, and accelerates healing.

20. Vaseline cure for hair balls..... To prevent
troublesome hair balls, apply a dollop of Vaseline
petroleum jelly to your cat's nose. The cat will lick
off the jelly, lubricating any hair in its stomach so
it can pass easily through the digestive system.

21. Quaker Oats for fast pain relief.... It's not for
breakfast anymore! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and
1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave
for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to
your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.

22. Keeping Pearls Clean
Most commercial jewelry cleaners specifically state they are not intended to clean pearls. So what can you use instead? To clean pearls and help them keep their natural luster, use a small amount of olive oil on a soft cloth. Rub it over the pearls and then buff them with a clean, dry cloth.
