Everyday Tips and Hints to Make Life Easier

> > Headache pain - Drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately - without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers.

> > Burns - Colgate toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns. Inhaler - Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler, filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoid peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.

> > Achy muscles - from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 TBSP. of horseradish in 1/2 cup of olive oil.- Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as massage oil, for instant relief for aching muscles.

> > Sore Throat - Mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 TBSP. six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria. The honey soothes the throat.

> > Urinary tract infections - cure with Alka-Seltzer. Dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly-even though the product was never been advertised for this use. (I've tried this one and it works!)

> >Plugged up toilet or sink drain? Put 3 Alka Seltzer tablets in, wait until the fizzing stops then chase with 1/2 cup of vinegar. Wait 15 minutes then flush the toilet and in the case of the sink, run hot water.

> > Skin Blemishes - Cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a band-aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Remedy works overnight.

> > Toenail fungus - Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic therapy leaves your toenails looking healthy again.

> >Athletes foot can be fought with spray on anti-perspirant. My uncle used this method for 30 years and it never failed him.

> > Rust cure - Forget those expensive rust removers. Just saturate an abrasive sponge with Coca-Cola and scrub the rust stain. The phosphoric acid in the coke is what gets the job done. Just think of what it is doing to your belly.

> > Bug killer - If menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get into your home and you can't find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly.

> > Splinter Remover - Pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-all over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue. Tape works well too.

> > Cure Boils - Cover the boil with Hunt's tomato paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.

> > Broken Blisters - Balm to disinfect a broken blister. Dab on a few drops of Listerine - it works as a powerful antiseptic.

> > Heal bruises - Soak a cotton ball in Heinz white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.

We assume no responsiblity for harm caused by the above recommendations. Be careful and use with care.

For Shiny Hair

I have auburn hair and this really brings out the shine and color (even though now most of the color is artificial).

Mix together 2 Tbls. of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of water. Put in a spray bottle. After washing your hair, spritz it on, rub in well and let sit for about 5 minutes then rinse.

This will also remove residue from styling products.
