DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU HAVE USED A COMMERCIAL DRAIN OPENER THAT MAY STILL BE PRESENT IN THE DRAIN!
To clear your slow running drain pour 1/2 cup of baking soda in the drain followed by 1/2 cup white vinegar and cover (if possible). Allow this to work for 15-30 minutes and then flush the drain with a pan of boiling water.
I use this solution every three months or so to keep a tub drain that is prone to clogging clear and running freely.
When you are getting ready to paint, take a screwdriver and place it between
the lip on the paint can (where the paint fills up when you pour it) and tap a
few holes around the rim so the paint can drip through instead of run over.
To remove static electricity from your comb, simply take a fabric-softener
sheet and run it back and forth over the brush a few times.
Place a small bowl of white vinegar next to the stove while frying foods to
chase away odors. This even works on fried fish!
To remove bumper stickers, take a blow dryer and turn it to high. Heat the
sticker and take an old credit card and start pushing the sticker up. Keep
heating and pulling and it should come right up. The top layer of the sticker
may come off first; if so, just do the same thing to the bottom layer.
