Tips and remedies
Clean your glass shower - To clean the glass in your shower easily, apply lemon juice to the glass with a sponge. Then, take newspaper and wipe the lemon juice off the glass. It will be clean and sparkle with no scrubbing!
Broken Glass Use a dry cotton ball to pick up little broken pieces of glass - the fibers catch ones you can't see!
No More Mosquitoes - Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.
Squirrels Away! - To keep squirrels from eating your plants sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it.
Measuring Cups Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill it with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry the cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out.
To eliminate Hiccups - Swallow a teaspoonful of white granulate sugar. Don't drink any water after it.
High Blood Pressure - Eat 1 banana everyday. It will help lower your blood pressure. The potassium in the banana helps counteract the sodium in your body. Eating celery helps too.
Allergies - Take a spoonful of honey everyday. (or more, if you like honey) The honey needs to be locally produced in your area that you live in. This will take a few months or longer to help reduce or eliminate your allergies to outdoor pollens. The honey is like an all natural allergy shot.
Foggy Windshield - Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car. When the windows fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!
Reopening an envelope - If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Voila! It unseals easily.
Goodbye Fruit Flies - To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass fill it 1/2" with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dishwashing liquid, mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!
Get rid of Ants Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it "home," and can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!
Take baby powder to the beach Keep a small bottle of baby powder in your beach bag. When you're ready to leave the beach sprinkle yourself and kids with the powder and the sand will slide right off your skin.

with the sunlight on my face, but there's nothing I can do...
