Garage Security Tips

Lock the track on your home's garage door when you go away on vacation. First heard this idea from my dad!

My carpets are so gross with 3 kids carpet cleaner - Awesome! Should've done before/after pics, but I had 3 almost black stains on my off-white carpet and they came up beautifully! Had to do it twice, but they had been there a LONG time and were really ground in. 2cups hydrogen peroxide and 1/4 cup baking soda. Put in a spray bottle squirt- scrub- vacuum!

Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside 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. FLIES LOVE THIS!!! Have caught 1000's of flies!!
