# Flies or bees bothering you? Spray them with hairspray and they will take a quick dive.

# Sealed envelope - Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed.

# Use Empty toilet paper roll to store appliance cords. It keeps them neat and you can write on the roll what appliance it belongs to.

# For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: get warm water and put Dawn dishwashing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't refreeze.

# Crayon marks on walls. A damp rag, dipped in baking soda. Comes of with little effort.

# Permanent marker on appliances/counter tops. Use rubbing alcohol on paper towel.

# Cut S.O.S. cleaning pads in halves or quarters with a pair of scissors. You will waste less dirty, smelly, rusty pads. This also keeps scissors sharp.

# Blood stains on clothes. Pour a little peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood.
(see Human Blood)

# Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal for inside windows. This way you can tell which side has the streaks. Straight vinegar will get outside windows really clean. Don't wash windows on a sunny day. They will dry too quickly and will probably streak.

# Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely light scent in each room when the light is turned on. Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will smell freshly washed for weeks to come. You can also do this with towels and linen.

# Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3 hours prior to burning.

# To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag and add the flowers. Shake vigorously as the salt will absorb all the dust and dirt and leave your artificial flowers looking like new.

# To easily remove burnt on food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to a boil on stovetop.

# Spray your Tupperware with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato based sauces and there won't be any stains.

# When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

# Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

# When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corn's natural sweetness.

# Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

# Don't throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
(see Ordering Wine)

# To get rid of itch from mosquito bites, try applying soap on the area and you will experience instant relief.

# Ants, ants, ants everywhere. They are said to never cross a chalk line. So get your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or wherever ants tend to march.

# Use air-freshener to clean mirrors. It does a good job and leaves a lovely smell to the shine.

# When you get a splinter, reach for the scotch tape before resorting to tweezers or a needle. Simply put the scotch tape over the splinter, then pull it off. Scotch tape removes most splinters painlessly and easily.
