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.
Dawn + Vinegar After seeing this on Pinterest last year, this is now my favorite cleaner. It's amazing. I spray, walk into the next room to spray the sink in there, come back, and---ta-da!---one wipe with a damp cloth takes off the lime build-up on my Wisconsin sinks! It's awesome for countertops, stove, toilet, the fridge, and even the floor! (The only thing it doesn't do is windows!) -bls
Aspirin is the remedy for fungal plant problems, Black spot, powdery mildew, and rust are a terrible trio of fungi, which can attack and destroy your plants. Scientists have found that two uncoated aspirin tablets (325 milligrams each) dissolved in 1 quart of water and used as a foliar spray can thwart these diseases. I have not tried this, but I will.
