The last of the hints and tips

To prevent your eyes watering while chopping onions, wipe the chopping board with white vinegar (which won't affect the taste of the onions)

Use binder clips to keep stacked bottles in place in the fridge

Another way to clean a chopping board is to cover liberally with Kosher salt and leave overnight. Scrape off with a cloth in the morning to find the salt has absorbed all moisture to leave your board clean and dry.

Use a cut potato to easily remove a broken lightbulb

Use chalk to remove grease stains from clothes. Simply rub white chalk on the affected area and wash as normal - the chalk will absorb the grease and be washed away in the cycle.

Place a wooden spoon over a pan to stop the water from boiling over

Wrap rubber bands around the ends of a coat hanger to prevent dresses from slipping off.

Yet another use for drinks can ringpulls! Use to create a hanging loop for picture frames by screwing into the back.

Those are good ones too. I learned about the wooden spoon over a boiling pot some time ago, and use that every works. I also like the use of the can ring tabs to put on the back of a picture to hang. I always like simple, easy things that I can do. Thanks again, and have a good day.

Hi Patty! How inventive you are! Thanks for the useful information. Sometimes we don't know what to do , when a simple solution makes all the difference.

These are great. I love handy hints. Wish I had done the first one last night before I chopped the onions. Now if I can only file this info in a place in a area of the memory bank so I can get to it. Peace
