House Stuff I Wish I Thought Of

Listerine Mosquito Repellent. The best way of getting rid of mosquitoes is Listerine, the original medicinal type. The Dollar Store-type works, too. I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared. The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well.

OMG!!!! this is AMAZING .... PURE GENIUS!!!!! A trick for hanging photo collections: Lay out your arrangement. Flip frames over. Lay waxed paper on top of frames. Mark hanger/nail spot on waxed paper. Flip waxed paper over and tape to wall, nail into wall where indicated. Tear down waxed paper. Hang photos.-- Found this ONE day after I spent HOURS hanging a gallery wall diy

Clever!! What a great idea to hang a picture!! Put the toothpaste where you will want the nail to go. Then, press the picture to the wall where you want to hang it so that the toothpaste from the back of your frame sticks to the wall. Why didn't I think of this? Just a great idea!!

the backs of two antique chairs & make a bench, awesome for the foot of the bed or entryway. So simple!
