Did you know that milk and vinegar can nix stains, butter can save your precious baubles, and corn starch gets you and your kids out of knotty problems?
Read on for smart and unexpected household uses for peanut butter, vinegar, potatoes, and plenty more.
To get gum out of a carpet, scrape up what you can, using an ice cub to stiffen it if necessary. Then rub a small glob of peanut butter into the fibers, and wipe up the whole mess with a cloth. To get rid of any left-behind PB, just dab it up with a mixture of 1 tsp of dishwashing liquid in 1 cup of lukewarm water. It’s also great to get gum out of your hair.
If your tiny tot has diaper rash, sprinkle the area with corn starch — it’s a tushy saver! Your child just learned how to tie their shoes and the knots are impossible to undo. Stay calm and sprinkle a little cornstarch on the laces to help you work out the knot.
Don’t just throw out the whole bean after you’ve scraped out the inside — it’s still fragrant with vanilla flavor. Stick it in the filter of the coffeemaker and enjoy the vanilla-flavor of your next brew.
Most people know that vinegar is a great way to clean a coffee pot. What to do with the hot vinegar afterward? Pour it on weeds. White vinegar is an herbicide, while boiling water also kills weeds.
Use a soft cloth to rub Worcestershire sauce on silverware (or any silver for that matter), then rinse and dry. They will look brand new!
Put slices of bread in the bags and jars of cookies and other baked goods to keep the goodies fresh. Great for holiday baking and shipping.
Next time you drop a wine glass or break a plate, grab a slice of bread to help you clean up. After you pick up the larger pieces, press the bread over the area and it will pick up all the itty bitty pieces you can’t see. Bread can also help clean fingerprints off walls and wallpaper. Just rub and voila!
Soak your hair in beer, and go lay out in the sun to pull out some great highlights. Make sure to shampoo afterwards, or you’ll end up smelling like a brewery!
