I had a nasty bug sting yesterday. The only remedy I could recall was to make a paste of meat tenderizer and water to cover the bite. Well, it actually worked. I'll be darned. The tenderizer was so old that I can't recall when I bought it. Just a note: this was a pain stopper - not a swelling reducer.

Non-seasoned meat tenderizer works fabulous on old, stuck-on stains, especially blood and sweat. The bromelain in it breaks down the proteins in blood and sweat without ruining your fabric.

I think I might have come up with another way to kill ants. I had good luck with Sweet 'N Low on the ants outside, but when I got bathroom ants the Sweet 'N Low didn't work as quickly for some reason. The inside ants look like the outside ants so I don't know why I didn't get my usual fast results. Anyway, I started using powdered meat tenderizer and I think I may have a winner.
