12) Baking Soda: Remove Bugs from Windshield

Mix baking soda with warm water to make a paste.
Spread the paste over your windshield for fifteen minutes.
Then wipe or spray off with a hose.

13) Bleach: Extend Life of Flowers in Vase

Add a few drops of bleach to vase water to prevent
the build-up of the slime caused by bacteria.
It works just like chlorine in a swimming pool.

14) Kitchen Dish Soap: Flea-Killing Dog Shampoo

Kitchen dish soap (not dish detergent) can double
as dog shampoo for its flea killing abilities.

15) Coke: Remove Blood Stains from Clothing

Soak the stain in coke until the stain is dissolved, then wash the clothing as usual.
Wash before the coke dries, though.

16) Honey: Remove Blemish Overnight

Have a blemish you need to get rid of by tomorrow?
Put a dab of honey on the blemish and cover it up (it’s best to use a Band-Aid)
and the honey’s natural antibacterial properties will clean out the bacteria by the morning.

17) Wax Paper: Clean Can Opener Gears

Run a few small strips of wax paper through the can opener to clean out the bits and pieces
that have built up in the gears throughout the year.
The wax will also rub off on the gears to protect for future use as well.

18) WD-40: Remove Crayons from Walls

Use the lubricant and a cloth to remove stubborn crayon marks from the walls
just by spraying the wall and wiping with a cloth.

19) Chalk: Keep Ants and Slugs Out of the House

Ants and Slugs Won’t Touch Chalk.
So, simply draw a line in front of your doorway where you are having problems
with these pesky critters and they won’t cross it,
meaning they won’t be able to get into your house.

20) Vinegar: Kills Weeds and Helps Flowers Grow

Douse vinegar all around your garden to prevent weeds from popping up
and to help your flowers to grow healthy and strong.

Parts 3, 4, and 5 will be published soon.
