Quick Fixes

Here are some household tips and quick fixes without spending money to replace them with new ones.

If you've lost a bath tub plug, find an old golf ball and use it as a substitute. It stays in place and rolls back in if dislodged.

For sticking shower curtains, don't throw it out and buy a new one, hair conditioner will do the job. Apply and rub it on the rod, you'll be surprised that the rings will glide smoothly.

Instead of buying and using a regular pin cushion, use a wide candle. The wax helps pins and needles slide in and out of the fabric more easily. Plus, it prevents them from rusting.

If you're having guests, impress them by making your plant leaves glossy. Rub them with a little mayonnaise and a paper towel. They will stay shiny for weeks. Egg whites work well too.

Sis, off topic. About sa entrecard, meron an akong account nuon pa pero ayukong may mga adds ang blogs ko. Pero kung maganda to sa blog natin, then I guess I should put it then.

Paano mo ginawa, na more than one blog ka? Meaning meron tayong two or more accounts sa entrecard? Pls reply nalang sa blog ko ha, di ako pakali eh.

Syanga pala, konte lang ang visitors natin especially newly opened blog. Pero kung luma na ang blog natin at marami ng entry, marami ng visitors at di na kilangang mag blog hopping.
