Keeping Potatoes Fresh, Wrinkle Releaser, electric toothbrush.

I do not claim that any of these work but they sound interesting…


Keeping Potatoes Fresh

Here’s how I store potatoes for a few weeks without them sprouting. As soon as I get them home from the store, I take them out of the original packaging and put them in doubled paper grocery bags. Then I fold the top down several times and clip it shut with two clothespins. This works great for me!

Wrinkle Releaser

I haven’t ironed in six years! My secret? When I hang my clothes up (which sometimes they sit crumpled up in a laundry basket for a few days), I simply spray them with water and fabric softener. After letting the items dry a few minutes, they’re wrinkle free. If extremely wrinkled, two applications may be required. I fill a spray bottle a quarter of the way up with fabric softener and then fill the remaining with water.

You What?!?

Every year I purchase a new electric toothbrush. They usually run about $25 and come with two or three brushes. It is usually cheaper to buy a whole new unit than to buy the extra brush heads. I felt so bad about throwing the old one away, so while I was in the shower (strange place to brush your teeth), I thought it might be a good idea to do my cuticles and nails with the old brush. I used a little toothpaste on it. It not only made my nails really shiny, but also my cuticles softened up. When I got out of the shower, I pushed my cuticles back easily with my towel. It also cleans jewelry very well.
