Useful tricks

I guess if you have problems with, reading people's mail, slipping on the ice, blood, stains, and ants, the following will be very helpful. I thought they were kind of interesting.

A sealed envelope - Put it in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a
Knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed.
(I guess this is useful if you want to open someone's letter and you don't want them to know.)

For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: get warm water and put
Dawn dish washing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't
Refreeze. (This might come in handy!)

Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped
In baking soda. Comes off with little effort. (For when you have children, unless adults have a tendency to write on the walls.)

Blood stains on clothes? Not to worry! Just pour a little hydrogen
Peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood. Works
Every time! (Now, where to put the body?) LOL

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 .

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 stove top.

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

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. ( This might have to become a new everyday ritual if it actually works.)

Ants, ants, ants everywhere ..
Well, 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. See for yourself.
