Way Wizzy Cool tips of the day

I love tips, little shortcuts that make you slap yourself upside the head with “WHY THE HELL DIDN”T I THINK OF THAT??”  Well, I’m here to save you some pain.  Some of these are new to me and some I’ve been using for a while.

  1. Use WD40 to remove the crayon masterpiece your little darlin’ left on your TV, computer screen or wall.
  2. Use a metal binder clip to hold your phone charger in place on your desk. 
  3. Never put citrus fruits or tomatoes in the fridge.
  4. Use a cotton ball smeared with vaseline to help start a fire in the fireplace.
  5. Use vodka to remove gum from your hair or carpet.  Pour some on while rubbing it with a paper towel and watch the gum dissolve.
  6. Use plastic bread tags to label cords for the computer.
  7. Mix a couple of drops of your foundation makeup with a few drop of moisturizer and make your own tinted moisturizer.
  8. Put a tension rod under the cabinet to hang spray bottles on.
  9. Hull strawberries with a straw.
  10. Put on rubber gloves to open a tight jar
  11. Add laundry detergent to the washer before the clothes to keep fading to a minimum.
  12. Soak greasy tools in Coke Cola overnight to remove the grease and make them shine.
  13. Recycle Christmas cards into next year’s gift tags.  Cut out the picture or verse, then use a hole punch to cut the hole for the ribbon.
  14. Fold a large piece of aluminum foil up 3 or 4 times then cut it into strips to sharpen your scissors.
  15. When making deviled eggs, place the cooked yolks in a large sealable plastic bag, mash them with a rolling-pin, add the rest of the ingredients then snip off one corner and squeeze to fill the eggs.
  16. If you use store-bought icing, place it in a bowl and whip it with your mixer for a couple of minutes.  It will double in volume and make it fluffier and easier to spread.
  17. Use hair conditioner to shave your legs.  Great way to use up some that you bought and didn’t like and it really leaves your skin soft.
  18. Always put clear tape over address labels on envelopes or packages to preserve the ink from smears in case it gets wet.
  19. To clean your flower vases that you can’t get a sponge into, fill with hot water then add some rice and liquid soap.  Shake until clean.
  20. To keep the dogs out of the outside trash, spray the can with pine cleaner.
  21. Heat your eye lash curler with hot water or your hair dryer before using it.  Your    lashes will retain the curl longer.
  22. To clean the kid’s Legos, throw them in a lingerie laundry bag and wash them with the towels.
  23. Use a strand of uncooked spaghetti to check the doneness of a cake if a toothpick is too short.
  24. Put a little water in the votive candle holder before you burn the candle.  This will help to keep the wax from sticking to the glass.
  25. Always keep plastic grocery bags in the truck of your car.  You will be amazed at how often you will use them.

I hope these tips will help you out and please, please let me one or two of your favorites.
