    Here are some tips and tricks!!:D

    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.






    enjoy:D

    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.:rofl:

    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.
