Default Did You Know This?

Here are some tips and tricks!!

Add yours too


You can flip a toaster on its side and grill cheese in it. -



Untitled[1].jpg



Reynolds Wrap has lock in taps to hold the roll in place -



Untitled[2].jpg


The color on the bread tab indicates how fresh the bread is -



And those colors are in alphabetical order: b, g, r, w, y.
Untitled[3].jpg



You can divide and store ground meat in a zip loc bag. Just break off how much you need and keep the rest in the freezer for later. So much easier than dividing and individually wrapping each pound or half pound. -


Untitled[4].jpg


If you place a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water, it won't boil over. -



Untitled[1] (2).jpg



Stuffing a dryer sheet in your back pocket will repel mosquitoes. -


Untitled[1] (4).jpg



You can freeze cupcake batter for later use.



Untitled[1] (5).jpg



You can mail anything that will take a stamp and weighs less than 13ounces without a box? -


Untitled[2] (3).jpg


If you break your blender jar you can replace it with a mason jar. -


Untitled[1] (10).jpg


the pdf are same files and can't delete them sorry, no need to click on them.

There are some seemingly useful tips there that I will have to try for my self! Coming from a state known for Mosquitoes! haha not sure how well that will actually work but I'll give it a try haha.

And on the wonder bread packaging, did you know that the circles are another way of telling when the bread was actually made? haha

Not sure if repost, but in some android roms, in settings / about phone, if you keep tapping "android version" there appears some android artwork!

In fact I have found two (in CM7).

If a paint can is only part used, inflate a baloon, and put it in the can with the paint, to help keep it from drying out. OR, for those who have a propane torch handy, run the torch unlit into the paint can for a few seconds. This displaces the oxygen, and prevents the paint from drying out. I havent tried this myself, but have a few friends that swear this works.

If you ever need a new charger for your phone, just ask any hotel front desk that you lost your charger at your last visit. Many hotels have piles of phone chargers that guests left in their rooms over years and years and... years.

Knowing my luck I would forget I loaded the paint can with propane and the next time I used it I would be smoking, thereby painting myself and everything in the general area all at once.

Here's a tip for the arachnophobes. You dont need a special bug killer for spiders. Use Hornet or Wasp killer. That way, you can remain a safe distance away. For those NOT afraid of spiders, but want to give them a "taste of their own medicine" (the spiders, not the arachnophobes), Use a quality spray adhesive, for example 3M Super 90, and spray the little bastards with that, and enjoy knowing they will be forever glued to their webs, and serve as the "Head on a Stick" for future 8 legged terrorists.

If you're a Pillsbury Cinnamon Roll fan, you can cook them 1 at a time in a waffle iron and save the rest in the fridge in a sandwich baggie. Cooking time is the same as a waffle - voila!

PS: be sure to use a non-stick spray, especially on the cinnamon topping side.

Hair spray, perfume, also works. (happened to be the only thing in my hand at the time)

I only kill black widows. I'm pretty ok with the rest.

Jeez. No I did not, but wow!

Here's one. Prevent your bathroom mirror steaming up for weeks at a time by rubbing fairy liquid (hand dish-washing detergent) "into" it until it becomes clear and smudge free.

Good thing about the UK is no dangerous spiders . When I'm in CA I'm more cautious - not a fan of recluses or widows, though try not to kill tbh, just treat with care.

when picnicing just put some pancake syrup on paper plates(2-4) and place 20 ft away from your area then the flies and bees will not bother you. unless a bad infestation then move indoors.

For smokers, lighters work quite well too.

I use my wedding band as a bottle opener. Just catch the lip of the cap under your ring and pop it off. Mind you, my band is made of Tungsten Carbide, you may not want to try it with a gold band.

I hate all spiders. I will kill them. I have a bad case of arachniphobia, and if a spider is spotted in my house, I will destroy it with whatever means I have at my disposal. Shampoo bottle, bar of soap, clothes hanger, etc., If my piercing scream doesnt kill it, then I will find somthing that will.

This is something I used to do with a combination of oil in the water (for pasta). It does not full stop it, but it does lessen the boil over.

I hate when people kill spiders, it is so senseless. I'm claustrophobic, yet I don't attack closed in spaces when I see them. I just avoid them and closed in spaces do less good than spiders do.

The bread we buy is always a yellow or green tab with the date printed on it (my son saves the tabs for some unknown reason, but only the green ones). The brand next to ours is always white again with the date on it.

The common house spider can't harm people, and it is a pest insect eating machine.

My tip is to not bother house spiders, and use them as a natural insecticide.

If the stuff on a dryer sheet repels mosquitoes, and presumably you use them on your clothes when you dry them, wouldn't just wearing your clothes do the same thing? If it's really true, that is...

one dryer sheet with 20-30 pieces of clothing is diluted too much, the one sheet in pocket is full strength.

Full strength what?

A lot of scientific tests have been done about mosquito repellents, and the long-time and still champion is DEET. Some other chemicals work well enough to consider. None of the folk remedies, including citronella work well enough to be practical.

There's another problem with dryer sheets. The perfumes they put in them attract stinging insects like bees and wasps. I don't want to get stung by a wasp even if it does keep mosquitoes away!

Used dryer sheets work well for dusting the house.

here in fla mosquitoes come out at night and the bees are gone home. way too hot here for them to be out in daytime. i know the US is having a heat wave but it is like that here from may to oct all the time every year. so if your having mosquito problems during the day then stick to deet, nobody's twisting your arm, LOL!!


also i have a friend that lives down near the everglades and when he mows he has long pants with elastics around ankles, long sleeve shirt, a bee hat with screen around neck, gloves,ect... and they have a second house here in south central fla, and they come up here to be outside. he said that nothing workks down there. he says you just don't go out at all.

However . . . one must learn what a common house spider looks like. I mean, if you do not know, you might be encouraging a dangerous pest. I say kill them all.
