Cleaning Greasy Oven Filters: Fill your biggest pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add 1/2C of baking soda VERY SLOWLY! (about a Tbs at a time because it fizzes) Then take your caked-with-grease filter and submerge it in the pot. (Well, 1/2 of it anyway.) Boil several minutes. Rinse until water runs clear.

Don't let mosquitoes get the best of you! Put original Listerine in a spray bottle and spray away:) The mosquitoes will not be a pest anymore! Safe for babies, animals, and big babies! Without pesticides!!!!

To test the freshness of your refrigerated eggs, place each raw egg in a pot of water. If the egg floats, it's rotten. If it stands on its pointy end, it's 10 to 14 days old. If the egg tilts, it's about 3 or 4 days old. You want and egg to sink and lie on its side. That means it's fresh – any fresher, and a live chicken will be walking out of your kitchen.
