PLEASE BE SURE YOU READ THE LAST
ONE ABOUT THE CLOTHES
DRYER!!!!!! GREAT TIPS:
1.. Reheat Pizza Heat up leftover pizza in
a nonstick skillet on top of the
stove , set heat to med-low and heat till
warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No
soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the
cooking channel and it really works.
2.. Easy Deviled Eggs Put cooked egg yolks
in a zip lock bag. Seal , mash till
they are all broken up. Add remainder of
ingredients , reseal , keep mashing it
up mixing thoroughly , cut the tip of the
baggy , squeeze mixture into egg.
Just throw bag away when done easy clean
3.. Expanding Frosting When you buy a
container of cake frosting from the store
, whip it with your mixer for a few
minutes. You can double it in size. You
to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same
amount. You also eat less sugar and
calories per serving.
4.. Reheating refrigerated bread To warm
biscuits , pancakes , or muffins that
were refrigerated , place them in a
microwave with a cup of water. The
increased moisture will keep the food
moist and help it reheat faster.
5.. Newspaper weeds away Start putting in
your plants, work the nutrients in
your soil. Wetnewspapers put layers around
the plants overlapping as you go
cover with mulch and forget about weeds.
Weeds will get through some gardening
plastic they will not get through wet
6.. Broken Glass Use a wet cotton ball or
Q-tip to pick up the small shards of
glass you can't see easily.
7.. No More Mosquitoes Place a dryer sheet
in your pocket. It will keep the
8.. Squirrel Away! To keep squirrels from
eating your plants sprinkle your
plants with cayenne pepper. The cayenne
pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the
squirrels won't come near it.
9.. Flexible vacuum To get something out
of a heat register or under the fridge
add an empty paper towel roll or empty
gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be
bent or flattened to get in narrow
10. Reducing Static Cling Pin a small
safety pin to the seam of your slip and
you will not have a clingy skirt or dress.
Same thing works with slacks that
cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin
in seam of slacks and -- ta da! --
static is gone.
11. Measuring Cups Before you pour sticky
substances into a measuring cup, fill
with hot water. Dump out the hot water,
but don't dry cup. Next, add your
ingredient, such as peanut butter, and
watch how easily it comes right out.
12. Foggy Windshield? Hate foggy
windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and
it in the glove box of your car. When the
windows fog, rub with the eraser!
Works better than a cloth!
13. Reopening envelope If you seal an
envelope and then realize you forgot to
includesomething inside , just place your
sealed envelope in the freezer for an
hour or two. Viola! It unseals easily.
14. Conditioner Use your hair conditioner
to shave your legs. It's a lot
cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your
legs really smooth. It's also a
great way to use up the conditioner you
bought but didn't like when you tried it
in your hair...
15. Goodbye Fruit Flies To get rid of
pesky fruit flies , take a small glass
fill it 1/2" withApple Cider Vinegar and 2
drops of dish washing liquid ,
mix well. You will find those flies drawn
to the cup and gone forever!
16. Get Rid of Ants Put small piles of
cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it
, take it "home", can't digest it so it
kills them. It may take a
week or so, especially if it rains , but
it works & you don't have the
worry about pets or small children being
17. INFO ABOUT CLOTHES DRYERS The heating
unit went out on my dryer! The
gentleman that fixes things around the
house for us told us that he wanted to
show us something and he went over to the
dryer and pulled out the lint filter.
It was clean. (I always clean the lint
from the filter after every load
clothes.) He told us that he wanted to
show us something; he took the filter
over to the sink, ran hot water over it.
The lint filter is made of a mesh
material - I'm sure you know what your
dryer's lint filter looks like.
WELL...the hot water just sat on top of
the mesh! It didn't go through it at
He told us that dryer sheets cause
a film over that mesh
that's what burns out the heating unit.
You can't SEE the film , but it's
there. It's what is in the dryer sheets to
make your clothes soft and static
free - th at nice fragrance too, you know
how they can feel waxy when you take
them out of the box, well t his stuff
builds up on your clothes and on your
lint screen. This is also what causes
dryer units to catch fire &
potentially burn your house down with it!
He said the best way to keep your
dryer working for a very
long time (& to keep your electric
bill lower) is to take that filter out
& wash it with hot soapy water &
an old toothbrush (or other brush) at
least every six months. He said that makes
the life of the dryer at least twice

For Today! If you get up one more time than you fall you
will ALWAYS be a winner. When you try something new that you fear you'll
fail at, remember that through persistence you will succeed.
