A person thoroughly washing their hands.

Why Soap is Better Than Sanitizer
I've been thinking that the answer may be to use the sanitizer to kill the germs, then use soap and water to wash them away.

 

Better Boxed Macaroni and Cheese

Better Boxed Macaroni and Cheese
Or for a fraction of the cost of all those boxes, just buy a package of macaroni, still adding all the extra ingredients. The cheese packet is quite unnecessary and has a lot of sodium. Just add your own cheese and salt to taste

Paper Clip as Masking Tape Marker

Perm Didn't Take Well?
I had a perm like that once. They had used a "cold wave" on it. The cold wave also left my head with a bad rash. Now, for the past 20 years when I get a perm, I have gotten a "heat wave". They are much gentler on your hair and scalp and work great every time...

Outlets Not Working?
Check the outlet by plugging something other than your laptop. If the outlet is working, you probably need to check the power cord supply for the laptop. They do get old and wear out.

Remedy for Skin Cracks on Fingertips?
My dad used to get those cracks on his fingertips a lot. He went to a doctor and was diagnosed with eczema. I found out not too long ago that I also have this. The dermatologist prescribed a cortisone cream for it that clears it up very well.

You can wash the robe using a mild detergent and cold water. Do not put it in the dryer as the acrylic in the fabric will sometimes shrink.

Apples in Pie Too Mushy?
Preheat the oven up to 425°, bake at 425° for 15 minutes, then turn oven down to 350° for the remainder of time (about 30 to 45 min.) That should brown the crust without making the apples mushy.

Travel with Medications in Original Containers
I have also discovered that if you one of your pills comes loose and you can't figure out what it is, all you have to do is type into your computer the color, shape and the number on the pill. It will tell you exactly what the pill and dosage is.

Making Canned Chili Taste Homemade?
I buy the Johnson Brick chili, add a can of diced tomatoes, a can of chili with or without beans and some browned hamburger or beef chunks. Tastes as good or better than home-made. You can also add extra diced onions if you like.

If you would like to make more than 1 glass, take 3 to 4 lemons, cut in half and squeeze with lemon juicer. Then add enough water to make 1 1/2 to 2 quarts, add about 1 cup of sugar (or to taste), add ice and yummy.
