Making a Mosquito Trap

Need to remember this for the summer: Take that mosquitos!- Mosquito trap - Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.

GOTTA remember this!!! Easy way to get rid of mold in shower caulk - Someone else said: "I just tried it and OH MY GOSH does it work! I left it two hours and the mold was completely GONE!"

just did this tonight - for the first time ever! should have looked for this first! How to clean dishwasher

Great for all the pool towels this summer! Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelling funky. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and one cup vinegar, then a second time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!
