    41. To keep FRESH FLOWERS longer Add a little
    Clorox, or 2 Bayer aspirin, or just use 7-up instead of water.

    42. When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you "squeeze" for freshness or softness? Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a different color twist tie. They are: Monday
    =Blue, Tuesday = Gr een, Thursday = Red Friday = White and Saturday = Yellow. So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread w rappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.

    Thought I was gonna get ugly up in heah didn't ya! LOL!! Some of these are right I know -- like the bread tags, I checked that out one time and they do use the colored twist ties, around here anyways. I've used the paper towel and wax suggestion and the aspirin in flowers too, and they both work....just kinda have to look through em...Some of em may be useful anyway, and worth a try if that's all ya got to work with, like me! LMBO:smile2::smile2:

    I don't know about that Jello and the stiinky feet though , but I'd be the one to try that...I got the stinkinest feet in McDonald County! Now I coulda went all day and not said that HUH???

    Kutter and Reload: 26. Body paint - Crisco mixed with food coloring. Heat the Crisco in the microwave, pour in to an empty film container and mix with the food color of your choice! Ya'll try that one and lemme know if it works and if it don't kill ya'll I may try it!

    Budweiser conditions hair? LOL, no wonder I have such a headful! also meat tenderizer is a great blood stain remover. It breaks down red blood cells. Get blood on a good shirt or sweater? no problem. wet the stain and sprinkle unseasoned meat tenderizer on it and let it set a while. then it'll wash right out.

    Yep it's enzymes and that's what they do is act as a biological catalyst. That's why it tenderizes...if you don't have any salt? can use Meat tenderizer...take a look at the ingredients.

    and hon on the Bud??? you have to pour it ON your hair, not ingest it LMBO...:wink:

    Use cheap fabric softener mixed (50/50) with hot water in a spray bottle to remove wall paper.

    Just got done doing that. Spray it on, let it soak in for a few minutes, then use a paint scraper. I used a whole bottle of fabric softener to do one room, but it was a lot cheaper and worked better than the store bought stuff. IMO.
