A SEALED ENVELOPE- Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed.
USE EMPTY TOILET PAPER ROLL TO STORE APPLIANCE CORDS. It keeps them neat and you can srite on the roll what appliance it belongs to. You can even cover the roll with contact paper to make it look good.
FOR ICY DOOR STEPS IN FREEZING TEMPERATURES: get warm water and put Dawn dish washing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won’t Refreeze. (wish I had known this for the last 40 years.)
TO REMOVE OLD WAX FROM A GLASS CANDLE HOLDER: put it in the freezer for a few hours. Then take the candle holder out and turn it upside down. The Wax will fall out.
CRAYON MARKS ON WALLS: This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped in baking soda. Comes off with little effort (elbow grease that is!).
PERMANENT MARKER ON APPLIANCES/COUNTER TOPS: ( Like store receipt BLUE!) rubbing alcohol on paper towel.
I hope that these tips will be of some help for you. Some of them can even help when you are trying to get you home ready to sell!
