The Longest and Most Helpful .jpg EVER

I stumbled across this sometime this week, and I find it both fascinating and inspiring. We so often turn to mainstream, commercial grade cleaners and household supplies when the stuff packing our kitchen drawers and pantries are really where it's at. So check out this amazingly comprehensive list of "Extraordinary Uses for 16 Ordinary Household Items" from Woman's Day. And no, I never thought I'd post something from Woman's Day on this blog. Shocking.

Some of my favorites:
  • Can't get garlic or onion smell off your hands? Use toothpaste!
  • Extend your pants! Hook a rubberband through the button hole and loop it around the button for some extra breathing room. I'd love to see a whole table full of people chow down, then lean back and loosen their pants with rubberbands.
  • Stop tarnish on older or costume jewelry with clear nailpolish.
  • Detangle a knot (shoelaces, strings, chain) with a little sprinkle of cornstarch.
  • Help gelatin set up quickly by using small disposable cups. Young people often call these "Jello Shooters" when they are mixed with clear liquor. Dontchaknow?!
