    salve for burns.

    six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

    two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms.Alka-Seltzer

    the product was never been advertised for this use. (Note:

    which can cause stomach bleeding if you have ulcers.)

    for rust... Forget those expensive
    rust removers. Just saturate an abrasive sponge with
    Coca Cola and scrub
    the rust stain. The phosphoric acid in the coke is what gets the job done.

    Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer...
    If menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home
    and you can't find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula
    409. Insects drop to the ground

    Smart splinter remover
