Household Hints

We brought you a summer edition of our always popular Household Hints:

BUTTON AS TRAVEL EARRING HOLDER
TO KEEP EARRINGS TOGETHER AND ORGANIZED WHEN TRAVELING, FASTEN EACH PAIR TO A BUTTON.

BUTTON AS APRON HELPER
ATTACH A BUTTON TO THE FRONT OF AN APRON SO YOU CAN HANG A POT HOLDER OR LOOPED DISH TOWEL WHEN COOKING

SPAGHETTI AS CANDLE LIGHTER.
SHORT MATCHES BURNING OUT TOO QUICKLY?  A STRAND OF RAW SPAGHETTI IS A SUREFIRE AND LONGER-LASTING SUBSTITUTE.  IT MIGHT TAKE A FEW SECONDS TO IGNITE...BUT BE PATIENT BECAUSE IT STAYS LIT LONGER THAN SHORT MATCHES.

DRYER SHEETS AS BEE REPELLANT OR DRAWER SCENTER PLACE FRESH DRYER SHEETS ON YOUR OUTDOOR TABLES TO KEEP BEES AWAY....
AND SLIP A FEW FRESH ONES IN DRAWERS BETWEEN FOLDED CLOTHES.

CHEESE GRATER AS LEMON-JUICE STRAINER.
NEED TO SQUEEZE A LOT OF FRESH JUICE BUT DON'T HAVE A JUICER TO CATCH ALL THE SEEDS?  PLACE A GRATER OVER A BOWL AND SQUEEZE THE LEMON OVER THE GRATER -- THE JUICE WILL FLOW INTO THE BOWL BUT THE SEEDS WILL STAY ON THE GRATER.
