    27 Tie Dye T-shirt - mix a solution of Kool Aid in a container, tie a rubber band around a section of the T-shirt and soak
    28. Preserving a newspaper clipping - large bottle of club soda and cup of milk of magnesia , soak for 20 min. and let dry, will last for many years!
    29. A Slinky will hold toast and CD's!
    30. To keep goggles and glasses from fogging, coat with Colgate toothpaste
    31. Wine stains, pour on the Morton salt and watch it absorb into the salt.
    32. To remove wax - Take a paper towel and iron it over the wax stain, it will absorb into the towel.
    33. Remove labels off glassware etc. rub with Peanut butter!

    38. Grass stains - Karo Syrup
    39. Grease Stains - Coca Cola , it will also remove grease stains from the driveway overnight. We know it will take corrosion from car batteries!
    40. Fleas in your carpet? 20 Mule Team Borax- sprinkle and let stand for 24 hours. Maybe this will work if you get them back again.
    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 = Green,
    Thursday = Red
    Friday = White
    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 wrappers 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.

    Don't forget Gatorade for Migraine Headaches. PowerAde won't work.

    Forgot where I read this many years ago, but peanut butter will dissolve super glue. Mom tried it when she got two fingers stuck together and was free in minutes.

    The color coded twist ties is individual to the company/store. So you have to figure out what your store's code is.

    Thank you Niko, very interesting.
    I'm going to try the jello for paint color. I have some left over white paint to try it with.
    Also the colored bread twist ties/plastic clips - checking this out!

    Awesome list. Thanks. I wonder how well the beer works (or leaves a strong scent behind, not drinkers). I have a dairy allergy (yep, carry that EPI) and I've noticed some hair conditioners recently, which have added dairy enzymes, that could explain my scalp freaking out and itching like crazy. Some I've known about, but a number of these are new to me.

    I tried that Vicks Vapo rub on fungal nail infection once, and it worked! Better than Fungi-Cure!

    I am still trying it - no results yet.

    Has anyone tried spraying Pam to dry your nail polish? Wouldn't that leave them greasy?
