Newspaper weeds away

Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go cover with mulch and for- get about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers. 

Broken Glass  

Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily.


 

 No More Mosquitoes

Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.


 

 Squirrel Away!  

To keep squirrels from eating your plants, sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper.   The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it.

 

 Flexible vacuum

To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.

 

Reducing Static Cling

Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose.  Place pin in seam of slacks and ... ta da!... static is gone..

 

Measuring Cups

Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water.  Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out.

 

 Foggy Windshield?  

Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car . When the window s fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!

 

 Reopening envelope

If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Viola! It unseals

 easily.

 

 Conditioner  

Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.

 

 Goodbye Fruit Flies

To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2' with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!

 

 Get Rid of Ants  

Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works  and you don't have the worry about pets or small children

 Yeah, I just got this from a lady I work with last week; some  things I'd already heard of, but some I hadn't.
