Hints and Tips part 7


This is the final hints and tips in the series for now.

1. Cracks in china vases can discolour after a time. Apply a little dilute bleach on a cotton bud, apply to crack and allow to set for about 15minutes. Rinse and dry

2. I use this one quite a bit thanks to Soek and Zippo! Remove pet hairs/fluff with a length of sticky tape wrapped around your hand.

3. When hanging a sweater or jersey to dry, in order to prevent peg marks, run a par of tights/pantyhose through the cuffs and neck, peg the tights to the line.

4. Fold a sheet into manageable sections, and iron flat one by one

5. Clean an iron while still hot. Rub it on an old towl to remove stickiness, then dip a damp cloth in bicarbonate of soda and wipe.

Wednesday Funnie 11/4

Who doesn’t love fun and interesting info! Impress your friends!

    letter ‘A’?
    A. One thousand
  • Q. What do bulletproof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and laser printers all have in common?
    A. All were invented by women
  • Q. What is the only food that doesn’t spoil?
    A. Honey
  • It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride’s father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon
  • In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts… So in old England , when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them ‘Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down.’
    It’s where we get the phrase ‘mind your P’s and Q’s’
  • Many years ago in England , pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. ‘Wet your whistle’ is the phrase inspired by this practice

Hints and Tips part 6

Top of the day!

I trust you are building your own portfolio of hints and tips, which are helping to make life easier and more streamlined for you!

1. To sew in a zip, stick the zip in place with transparent sticky tape. Sew through the tape and pull off afterwards

2. Only wash strawberries just prior to eating them. They will keep better when stored dry

3. To prevent ice cube trays sticking together in the freezer, place a sheet of tinfoil or wax paper in between each tray

4. Store your plastic shopping bags in a 2 litre plastic container. Cut a medium circle on the front and just stuff the bags into the top of the container and pull out the circle when needed.

5. For even distribution of your favourite perfume spray the fragrance in front of you and then walk through it
