Sadly, I can now say this one is not true.
yes is great if have a tablet but have to zoom in and scroll on phone and take chance of a spill or something bad happening. so some of us are still half old school. my wife has a simple phone only and no web or anything, and this is as of just 8 months ago, before that she had none at all, talk about old school.
well that will need some thought to work for that then.
so sorry about that, i guess all are not perfect.
While we're swapping household advice, would child-proofing latches work to keep a cat out of cabinets?
yes, the ones that have the plastic latch to push down once you get the door open a little bit first. and that is until they figure that out, they are smart.
OK, so I think you're describing the kind I had in mind, that would install inside the door frame (remember, the cabinet doors don't have knobs).
yes, you open a little then stick fingers in and bend out of latch and then open all the way.
you can also put a small hook on inside of door and then open door and hang metal coat hanger on insde to where it hangs down past the bottom of the door to hang receipe on. only needs to be on one door where most preperation is done, and nobody will ever see hook. just an idea!!
They work on our cat, but not our ferrets.
Unfortunately for me, I live in the one state in the US where ferrets are illegal. I hear they're entertaining pets, but until I move to another state.....
Before grilling burger, press a hole in the middle of the patty. The hole will disappear as the burger cooks. This will minimize shrinking and you won't have to worry about them not being done in the center. unless you over cook it then it will shrink.
Do you have hard water spots around your sink fixtures? Soak a rag in white vinegar, lay the rag over your water spots let sit for a few minutes and the spots will scrub right off.
Rubbing some butter over the cut edge of a block of cheese will seal it and stop it from molding.
If your hair turns green from the chlorine in the pool, dissolve eight aspirin pills in a glass of warm water, coat hair with the solution, let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse. The green will be gone.
Not a bad idea. I can state from experience that those Command hooks come off quite well, so I don't have to worry about damage (I'm renting), so one of those could work quite well for this.
Need to hang a picture but there is nothing on the back to hang it from? Once you are done with your soda, turn the tab around. Using a pair of pliers grab the bottom (short end) of the tab and bend the tab down into the mouth of the can while pulling up at the same time. This will ensure that the ring is still intact so that you can attach it to the back of your frame with a screw and hang your photo

The first time you take the brown sugar out of the freezer you're going to think, 'Oh %&@$, MacFett lied to us! This is one solid brick of brown sugar.'
That is because it is frozen, not hardened. It defrosts very quickly and breaks off in pretty large chunks, but it will make measuring hard. So use a site like Gram Ingredient Conversions Calculator to convert volume to weight.
However, if you place something like a chopstick in a cup of water being heated in the microwave, it can prevent explosions. The stick gives a place for bubbles to cling to so you will not suffer burns.
To relieve (or remove) a sunburn soak a couple earl grey tea bags in water and let soak until the tea is dark black. Dip a rag into the tea and dab on your sunburn. Continue to reapply as the tea dries. Do not wipe off. Allowing the tea to sit on the burn over night and wash off in the morning. The burn should be barely visible if not gone completely
Need to light a hard to reach candle but don't have any long matches? Use a piece of uncooked spaghetti.
Apply a thin layer of olive oil to your candle holders before you use them. Once the candle has melted the olive oil will allow you to wipe off the wax and keep it from sticking to the candle holder.
Too many clothes in your closet? Turn all of your hangers backwards. Once you wear a piece of clothing, hang it back up with the hanger facing forward. At the end of the year, toss any item that are still on hangers facing backwards. If you haven't worn it in a year you probably wont miss it.
