Really? Things to try.

Cotton swabs dipped in wax become instant campfire starters. Lightweight and Genius!

Jewelry cleaner - another pinner said - tried it today and my engagement ring is almost blinding, it's sparking so much :)

How to get white nails -- make a paste using 1 tbsp peroxide and 2 1/4 tbsp baking soda. Let this paste sit on your nails for 5 minutes and voila! White nails! Another method is to scrub using an old toothbrush and whitening toothpaste.

Good to remember: lemon, rosemary and vanilla home deodorizer - let simmer all day, adding water when needed. Williams Sonoma store smell!

When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria on the surface. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.

Brilliant Idea! For the beach/pool. Wash out an existing container and store phone, keys etc. Great idea - I hate leaving that stuff around while I'm in the water. Brilliant!
