To repel mosquitos, put some water in a white dinner plate and add just a couple of drops of Lemon Fresh Joy dishwashing liquid. Put it on your patio. I don't know what attracts them, the lemon smell, the white color, or what, but mosquitos flock to it, and drop dead and fall into the water, or on the floor within about 10 ft. Works just super. Enjoy the mosquito-free summer!


Another use for baking soda -- make a paste by mixing a small amount of baking soda with a little bit of water in your hands for an excellent skin exfoliator. Great for dry skin on face, feet & elbows. Also good for skin irritations.

Save the snap top lids of your toothpaste tube. Wash & reuse on the next tube. Sometimes you can get toothpaste really cheap & the snap top lids keep the paste in the tube.

To clean your microwave, place a (microwave safe) cup of water with a teaspoon of baking soda in it. Run microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove cup and wipe out inside of microwave with a damp cloth.

WD-40 will take off almost any residue from stickers on glass & other surfaces!

To keep bags secure, always keep a bunch of clothes pins in your cupboard, they're very handy for turning down bags, cereal, snacks, etc...
