To carry a candle without dripping hot wax all over: Cut the bottom off a plastic disposable cup, slit an X in the bottom of it. Slip your candle through the slit. The cup-bottom will catch the wax.

I was trained at the hospital to just fold the end over a bit for the next time. IT is to insure that you can pull it off the skin much easier without harming the skin(or surface of anything you put it on).

At the end of the roll of tape, place a paper clip. Then when you need to use the tape, just pull on the paper clip. No more picking the end to get it started !

Linda, I've been making my suet cakes for the birds for a few years now.
I get the suet from my Amish Butcher shop for free and add corn meal, dried fruits, ground nuts, bird seed .
I've made over 40 of them so far this winter.
I, too, saved my original containers, make the cakes and put in sandwich bags and freeze until I need them.

To make your own suet cakes, melt lard, add birdseed and peanut butter. Pour into the plastic molds that the store-bought suet cakes came in. I saved a few of them before I made these homemade ones. The birds love them!
I put mine in the freezer to cool them, then pop them out and put them in the suet basket!! Perfect shape.

I suggested this before, but it bears repeating. When you have fresh flowers of any kind, put them in your refrigerator overnight. They will last a lot longer. Think about the florist shop:they have a walk-in fridge which keeps their flowers fresh a long time. I started doing this when my hubby sent me flowers. We do not sit and look at them in the dark, why let them wilt there?

This was the first time I received delivered flowers, Patti. (My ex husband would send my mother flowers when we had an argument) Although my daughter always gives me flowers.

Also 7-up works good too in the vase water.

I received a few bouquets of flowers for my birthday. and they are still looking beautiful as ever more than a week now. The trick is putting a few low dose aspirins in the water I add to the vase.

Hi All...
I posted a blog yesterday that Debbieanne read...She suggested I post it here...
So here goes !

I made 50 fire starters made from TP tubes and dryer lint...Then dipped in wax.

Cut 4 slits in the TP tube so you can fold into a box.

Fold in all 4 tabs on one side

Fill with dryer lint

Fold the 4 tabs on the other side

Tie with a string leaving one string longer to be used as the wick.

Dip in melted wax that was melted in a double boiler making sure you dip the strings and let some wax go inside the tubes. I buy candles at yard sales to use in this project.
(sorry, forgot to take a picture !)
Here is 50 of them finished ! (I cooled them on my porch to speed up the hardening)

To clean a glass coffee or tea carafe`, put salt and ice in it and swirl around.
It will loosen up the build-up with abrasion. You may have to swab it some when you finally dump the mixture out, but it speeds things up.

Eat or drink something WAY too spicy hot? Never drink water afterwards to cool it down. Dairy drinks or ice cream are best..Drink milk or eat ice cream to help it faster.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this thread. I found several suggestions I want to try - if I can remember them. Why was it discontinued? I don't mind when the same suggestion is repeated. I figure the repetition just increases the odds of my remembering.

Use baking soda and vinegar to clean your drains, BUT only one drain at a time! IF you do them all, your main waste pipe will clog up and you will be calling the sewer guys to snake your drain!!

Don't throw that old shower curtain away!! Save $$$ and recycle it!
I toss them in the washer with a load of towels or rugs, hang on the line outdoors or you can hang them over the edge of a railing(deck,porch,etc)
I use them to clean my oven by laying one out under the door of the oven. I also use them for painting tarps, covering wood piles , bikes, plants, picnic tables or outdoor furniture. The curtain ring holes can be used to lace string or rope through to shape them over and across an item to be covered ..
When traveling or transporting anything in your vehicle, place one in trunk or cargo area of your vehicle to be assured of no stains or spills on your carpet.
Use one to place under a tent when camping and/or covering your items on campsite too!
Uses are only as limited as your imagination. Cut them up to fit over smaller objects too!

To clean your toilet: Drop two alka seltzer tablets or the equivalent into your toilet. Wait twenty minutes, brush and flush! The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous china.

When you get a splinter, reach for the scotch tape. Simply put the tape over the splinter, tear it off pulling away from the splinter hole.

Use air freshener to clean mirrors. IT does a good job and better still, leaves a lovely smell to the shine.

Ants are said to never cross a chalk line. Get your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or wherever they end to march.
Boric acid powder also works if you spread a thin line in the crevices that are not visible with in the cabinets.

Don't throw out all of that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces or a wine spritzer!

Got a headache? A dab of essential oil on your temples and base of your neck will help. I use peppermint oil and lavender oil.

To determine whether an egg is fresh, immerse it in a pan of cool, salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh, but if it rises to the surface, throw it away.
