28 Uses for Everyday Items

Here are six excellent helpful hints for everyday needs. "The many hidden talents (both new and tried-and-true) of inhabitants of your kitchen and bathroom."

Rubber Bands
1. Open jars with ease. When a small lid won't budge, wrap a rubber band around it several times to give you a better grip.

5. Label meat. Are these burgers rare or well-done? They all look the same on the outside. Identify just-off-the-grill meats with different-colored toothpicks and they won't get mixed up.

10. Clean up a cracked egg. Cover the mess with a handful of salt, then wipe up with ease.

Post-It Note
14. Clean a keyboard. Run the sticky side between the keys to collect crumbs and bits of lint.

Felt Circles
19. Secure slinky garments. Stick a felt circle onto each arm of a hanger to keep clothes from sliding off.

Clear Nail Polish
26. Avoid rust stains in the bathroom. Coat the bottom of a shaving-cream can to fend off rings on the ledge of the tub.

These are great ideas as always. I have never heard the rubber band one. I could have used that yesterday trying to open the Apple Juice! I am going to try that one for sure.
