Handy Home Hints

Simple Home Remedies anyone can use:

  • Avoid cutting yourself when dicing vegetables by getting someone else to to hold the vegetables as you chop.
  • Avoid arguments about the toilet seat. Use the sink.
  • If you're choking on an ice cube, simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat. The blockage will instantly remove itself.
  • For quick relief of high blood pressure simply cut yourself over a vein or artery and bleed for a few minutes thus reducing the pressure. Use a timer.
  • A mousetrap placed on top of your alarm clock will stop you rolling over and going back to sleep after hitting the snooze button.
  • If you have a bad cough take a large dose of laxative. Then you will be too scared to cough.
  • You only need two tools in life - WD 40 and Duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should then use the WD 40. If it moves and it shouldn't use the duct tape.
  • Remember that everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
  • If you can't fix it with a hammer then you have an electrical problem.
  • Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down stairs.

To get people off the toilet quickly in Australia place a Funnel Web spider in the bowl.

Re: Handy Home Hints

Easily find the toilet bowl in the night by tying a piece of string from your bed to the toilet, then straddling it all the way to the bathroom.

HOUSEWIVES: Before attempting to remove stubborn stains from a garment, circle the soiled area with a permanent pen so that when you remove it from the washing machine you can check the stain has gone.
