  1. another trick, ever have pots with brass/copper bottom and chrome/silver for the rest. ever notice that the brass/copper bottom gets black or burned look after cooking with it, use lemon and salt, get the bottom of the pot wet cover in salt then use half lemon as a scrub brush and you will have a nice shiny clean brass/copper bottom.

  2. #30. When I first looked at it, I thought it was a double male-ended cord to keep burglars out. lol Plug one end in, bad guy grabs the other, pick him up in the morning.

      1. I don’t think the nail an cord thing was actually putting a nail into a cord. If you wrap the cord around the nail before pulling it around a corner it would pull on the nail instead of bending the metal on the plug an ruining it. I’m definitely going to try it sometime. Hope I helped!

          1. Really like really does a nail or screw make a diff. in terms of it being used in this method like really, either way a “nail” or screw in this method will make slip resistance in the way the pictures of both screws or “NAILS” are placed in the beams/walls or whatever the fixture maybe.

          2. Really Like Really does a “Nail” or Screw make a Diff. in this method, both “Nail” or Screw Will Cause Slip Resistance in this method, in laymen’s terms both “Nails” or Screws (in this method) will cause tension on the power cord(s) {shakes head stupid people these days}

  3. #30 – Come on folks – haven’t you ever heard of “strain-relief”? That’s all this is, and this is just one of many methods that works well. And, those are not nails in the end of the cord – they are bent prongs from pulling on the cord that has no strain relief used.

    1. Did you look at the whole picture? Obviously no one thinks that the prongs of a plug are nails…you use the nails/screws to brace the cord or provide “strain-relief, as is shown in the second half of the image.

  4. 30 – Come on people – haven’t you ever heard of “strain relief”? That’s all this is – and this method is just one of many that works great. Also, those are not nails in the end of the cord – they are bent prongs from pulling on the cord without a strain relief method.

    1. the same goes for flower gardens with railway ties used as a box cover your railway ties in motor oil and it will help keep unwanted bugs from getting to your flowers/shrubs plants.

      1. railway ties are usually soaked in coal-tar creosote; as a result they are highly toxic and carcinogenic. Never use them in flower beds since they will kill your flowering plants.

    1. I agree. Putting the batter into the bottle requires extra work and kitchen tools (funnel, spoon) that need to be washed. I mix my batter in a glass measuring jug, and pour it from there. Easy.

  5. One tip I saw on another list is so easy and works so well, I want to share!! When slicing or chopping an onion, put a cutting board on top of your stove, and turn on the exhaust fan! That takes all the fumes right out of your work!! Makes the job tear-free!

    1. I have used this option for no tears forever, my mother taught it to me. Keep onions in the fridge and slice them when cold. BTW I love this site and intend to try a few things asap, thank you <3

  6. I just used an old, wetted dryer sheet to clean dirty & greasy light switches. Also did the front door around the door handle. It took very little rubbing to make everything look brand new.

    1. Another use for used dryer sheets: If you have a Swiffer or Swiffer type floor tool, use your used dryer sheets instead of the expensive Swiffer sheets. They build up a static charge in the dryer, so they pick up pet hair really well.

  7. Nice tips… here are 3 more: (1)Remove sticker residue with masking tape: once you’ve peeled as much as you can, there is always that gummy mess which squishes around on the item. Use masking tape – apply & lift off… repeat if it doesn’t remove it all in one go. (2)Getting rid of seafood smells from your hands after cooking with stainless steel – while washing your hands with dish soap, rub a stainless steel spoon on your skin as if it were a bar of soap. Rinse… stainless steel neutralizes fish odours. (3)Glass table tops on metal frames are typically held in place by weak vinyl stick-ons. If you bump the glass the vinyl stickies often come loose and scratch the glass or worse break it. Replace the vinyl stickies with felt floor protectors for chair legs. And being felt, you can colour them with permanent markers to help match your metal frame. When bumped, the glass may move a bit, but nothing will break and nothing will come loose.

  8. I have always used the one with the sliver of soap and place it on a new bar my dad told me about that one years a ago. Haven’t thought about the bottle cap for the plastic bag of nestles chips or other bags like that. Pretty neat. Will have to tell dad about pancake bacon. He likes to cook breakfast foods. Will have to experiment on the folding of bottom sheets. I have trouble with them.

      1. I take my shower heads off to do that one, but I like to make sure the inside of the head is clean as well as the outside. Still use just vinegar. Vinegar and baking soda does the drains and tile grout as well.

    1. too sweet? I use paper cups /cake mix / water/ add whole grain of your choice stir to firm paste, form to sides with crater in middle of cup micro for couple minutes. can dress it up with jam. I add rolled oats, or whole wheat, etc to cake mix as I don’t care for the over sweetness, and whole grains adds nutrition. Sometimes, I add an egg. The paper cup is the ticket

  9. #8 unroll the rim to increase capacity? Much better to keep rim intact and push out the sides below the rim.

    I have a “life hack” that I use. I have no children in the house and the child safety caps on the mouthwash is a pain. So I use fingernail clippers to cut off the plastic tabs on the neck of the bottle. Now the cap unscrews easily.
