Household Hints

Good info from my email inbox: 

*When you need to dry the inside of a bottle with a small opening, fold and twist a paper towel from corner to corner and insert it into the bottle. The paper towel absorbs the moisture. It may be necessary to take towel out and let it dry, then insert it again.

*Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's 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 on your hair.

*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 openings.

*Use a mason jar (or any suitable upright container, perhaps clear plastic jars) in your medicine cabinet to corral all those little tubes of ointments, brushes, etc that are always falling out when you open the cabinet door. The clear glass helps you see what you are looking for.


*Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you
can't see easily.
*Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip or to the seam of your skirt and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling. Place pin in seam of slacks and .. ta da! ... static is gone.
