Omg! How am I going to fix this now? Those pesky questions whether I can do it myself or call a friend? Naagh...just reach into your subconscious & remember what that lady down the road said...'Now dear ..did u know?
Getting Rid of Ants: place small iles or cornmeal (polenta) where you see an ant trail. The eat it, take it home & can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or 2, especially if it rains - it definitely works & you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!
Conditioner: Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's a lot cheaper than shaving cream & leaves your legs really smooth. Another way of using up the conditioner you didn't really like when you bought it.
Reopening envelope: Suddenly realised you forgot to include something in your sealed envelope - just place it in the freezer for an hour or two - hey presto easy does it...open.
Baby powder: Keep a small bottle in your beach bag. When you're ready to leave the beach - sprinkle some on yourself & children - the sand will slide right off your skin.
