Thirteen unrelated, but helpful tips...

  1. Visine is a fast fix for a sudden break out. It constricts the blood vessels soothing the redness and swelling.
  2. Toothpaste will do the same thing.
  3. Club soda will help loosen a rusty bolt.
  4. A club soda dampened cloth used to wipe down chrome faucets will remove water spots and soap scum.
  5. Soak your genuine gems in club soda over night and they will sparkle by morning.
  6. Rinse your hair in club soda after swimming will prevent chlorine from turning your hair green.
  7. 6 cloves of garlic in 2 tablespoons of olive oil cured together for 2 days and then applied to your feet for 7 days will cure athlete's foot.
  8. Apply a thin layer of egg white under your eyes. Allow it to dry and rinse with lukewarm water. The amino acids nourish the skin and tighten the pores to reduce inflammation.
  9. Kiwi slices are packed with skin smoothing anti-oxidants and vitamin C which soothes puffy skin and lightens dark circles.
  10. 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt will soothe a sunburn.
  11. 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt will de-spot copper pots. Rub it in and et it sit 5 minutes. Rinse with cool water and buff dry.
  12. Substituting yogurt in your favorite dip will reduce the fat by half.
  13. Harness the power of positive thinking by retraining your brain to focus on what you want, dreaming big, following the golden rule and filtering out the negative.

I had heard of a few of these. *making notes of others* Being a mom to 3 boys, many of these may come in handy.

Happy TT and Happy Turkey Day!

What a great list. I had heard that about toothpaste and visine. Some of these are new to me, though! That last one, about retraining the mind, is going to be so difficult, but I need to do it.
