Lysol Basin Tub And Tile Cleaner for Laundry StainsI read the tip about using oven cleaner to get out stains. I have a much safer alternative than oven cleaner for laundry stains.
Use Milk to Remove Make-UpMilk makes a great make-up remover. Dip a cotton ball in milk and gently wipe off makeup.
Cheap TapeSave the edges from self-stick postage stamps, edges from around mailing labels, etc. to use as scotch tape where it doesn't matter or doesn't show. You can use this free scotch tape for most paper uses; however, it is best not to put labels on wood (cupboard doors, etc.) because it really does stick. Using the little pieces of labels in this way will cut down on the expense of regular tape.

Mark Make-Up With Fluorescent Colored DotsBeing nearsighted, I have troubles in my bathroom while trying to find the right makeup. I recently had the bright idea of putting the fluorescent colored dot stickers on my favorite makeup items so I can pick them up immediately without having to go thru each and every colored eyeliner to find the correct one. Hope this helps someone else.

Nicely Cut FlowersTo cut fresh flower stems cleanly, use a pet nail clipper. Simply put the stem through the hole and snip. A perfect cut every time!
