Active Since 2005
I once had a jewelry store owner tell me that the best thing to clean jewelry with is toothpaste and a soft bristled tooth brush. Just put a dab of the toothpaste on the brush and gently go over the item then rinse off with water and dry with a lint free cloth...
Giving Pills to Cats
I had this problem also and my vet had an item that is used for giving cats pills. It looks kind of like a syringe on one end with a plunger thing in it and the other end was open, you pull back the plunger and place the pill in the open end. Then get the cat...
Stopping Leg Cramps
Leg cramps can be a sign that your body is low on potassium, so eat potatoes or bananas are also good too. Also, if you drink a lot of milk each day that can also cause them so try cutting down on the amount of milk you drink.
What Happened to Corn Silk Makeup?
I just bought some Corn Silk loose powder not too long ago at our local Alco store. If you have one of those near you, check there. They also go by Duckwall stores sometimes but I think it's the same company. Hope this helps!
Cleaning Solution for Carpet Cleaner
I just use 1-2 cups of white vinegar and hot water. It makes it a lot easier because you don't have to go back over it continuously and the vinegar smell goes away when the carpet dries.
How Can I Tell If Something is Made of Silver
I read somewhere that it's a law that all sterling silver has to be stamped .925 somewhere on it or else the item can't be sold as "sterling silver".
Potato Bead Necklace
I have seen entire necklaces made this way. The potato chunks were painted blue and looked exactly like turquoise stones. I would never have known the difference if the person wearing it hadn't told me it was made from potatoes!
You can also use those biscuits that come in a tube. All you have to do is cut them in half. It may be easier than using frozen bread if you are in a hurry.
Steam Cleaning Floors
I've thought about buy a steam cleaner as well. Does anyone have any certain brand recommendations that work really well?
Buying Oven Guards
I just saw some today at Wal-Mart in the kitchen gadgets aisle. I think they were 3 dollars and some change.

Removing Flarp Putty from Hair
I know that you can remove gum from hair with peanut butter so you might try that. I don't know if it will work or not, but it's worth a try.
I've seen them called "Naughty Dolls" before and here is a link I found for them... http://ourhouse.ninemsn.com.au/ourhouse/factsheets/db/craft/01/160.asp hope this is what you are looking for!
Keeping Soda from Going Flat
Squeeze the air out of the bottle before you put the lid back on it. I used to waste a lot of money dumping soda out that had gone flat. I read somewhere that if you squeeze air out of the bottle until the pop is up to the top before you put the lid back on...
How To Grow Healthy African Violets
I've never grown any African Violets, but have always heard that if you can't get them to bloom to bury a rusty nail in the soil of the plant. A friend of mine had an African Violet that wouldn't bloom, she tried this and said it worked.
Looking For Ham, Cheese and Potato Casserole Recipe
I make mine the same way you do but occasionally add some sour cream to it when it's done cooking. The sour cream makes the casserole a bit thicker and also gives it just a little bit more flavor.
Covering a Glassed Paned Door
Our front door is also like that and made of metal. At Wal-Mart I found a curtain rod that is made for metal doors and has magnets that attach it to the door. The magnets are strong and I have never had a problem with it sliding around. I hung a lace curtain...

Cutting Meringue Pies
Or just dip your knife in a glass of hot water as you are cutting the pie.
Great idea! I've never thought of that before. I've found the easiest way to "core" a strawberry is to use a straw. Just push a straw up through the middle from the bottom and it takes the top right off, much faster and easier than trying to cut the tops off...

I used to do that, but found this recipe for glass cleaner that I think works even better: 1 tsp dish soap 1 pint rubbing alcohol 1/2 cup ammonia Put these in a gallon jug and top it off with water until it's full. I put some in a spray bottle and then use...
I found this site the other day: www.swapathome.com I've never used it but from what I understand you put things up to trade for coupons and then you can use those coupons to trade for things other people have listed to swap. You'll have to read through the...
Carpet Cleaning Science Project
The best stain remover I've found is called R2X by Shaw Flooring Company. I received a free sample of it in the mail and it took out stains that had been in my carpet for about 6 months that other stain removers couldn't do anything for.
Fuel Efficient Used Cars
My husband has an Olds Cutlass and he gets around 32 miles per gallon. It's an older one, '82 I think, but it still gets great gas mileage.
Milk Question about Fudge Recipe
This sounds similar to a recipe I use every year at Christmas time to make fudge with. I would get so frustrated because I could never get my homemade fudge to turn out right but came across this recipe a few years ago and have used it ever since. It always...

The brand that I've had the best luck with is VTECH. They usually cost a bit more but have always worked great and better than any other brand I've bought.
