Tuesday Tips

So, it's time again for Tuesday tips.
I hope that at least one of these are helpful for you.

*To stop static shocks from carpets, fill a spray bottle with two parts liquid fabric
softener, and five parts water. Then lightly mist the carpet. It will not only eliminate the static, it will also freshen the room! :)
*If you don't have your Muscle Man at home and need to open a jar, try using rubber dishwashing gloves. You can also put a rubber band around the lid. You'll have a great grip and be able to unscrew the lids easily.
*If your new jeans are just too stiff, break them in by washing with detergent and a half cup of table salt.
*Ants will not walk through baby powder.
*If your dog has bad breath, try mixing some parsley into his food once a day.
(this tip works for humans, too!)
*When baking on a cookie sheet, cover it with foil first. Then just ball up the foil,
toss & clean up is done!
*Wrap celery in foil to keep it fresh for weeks.
*To get the most juice out of your lemons, bring them to room temperature
and roll under your palm on the counter a few times before squeezing.
*An easy way to peel oranges: soak in boiling water for five minutes. Then peel as usual.
Bonus: The white part comes off all the way using this method.
Those are all of the tips I have this week.
Do you have any tips to share?
