Armour Etch For Scratched Eyeglasses

iPod Touch Went Through Washer?
I hope you havent tried to turn it on yet. Thats what usually kills it. This should all be done before ever trying to turn it on because it will short out and then you will need a new one.

Homemade Vaporub
I think its great you can make it but for the amount of times I use it would be easier for me to buy a small jar. To buy all of the ingredients is counter productive to being thrifty in my opinion.

Button Bobby Pins
I wouldnt go through the trouble of threading them on unless you plan on selling them. Just putting the bobby pin through the shank would be sufficient.

I would try some peroxide because that has bleaching properties. Ever notice how the tips of your fingers turn white when using it? Also, Ive just read that honey is great for pimples because it kills the bacteria (this is for future use). Anyway, a concealer...
