My grandma sent me these, so I thought I would share. Have you ever used these? Or, do you have hints of your own to share?
Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove,
set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.
Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all
broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing until thoroughly mixed. Cut the corner tip of the baggy and squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done--easy clean up.
When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount.
You also eat fewer sugar/calories per serving.
Reheating refrigerated bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place
them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist andhelp it reheat faster.
Newspaper weeds away
When putting in your plants, work the nutrients into the soil. Then
put layers of wet newspapers around the plants, overlapping as you go. Cover with mulchand forget about weeds.
Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get
through wet newspapers.
Use a dry cotton ball to pick up little broken pieces of glass- the
fibers catch ones you can't see!
No More Mosquitoes
Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.
To keep squirrels from eating your plants sprinkle your plants with
cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it.
To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge, add an
empty paper towel roll or gift wrap roll to your vacuum hose. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.
Reducing Static Cling
Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not
have a clingy skirt or dress.
Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose.
Place pin in seam of slacks.
Measuring Sticky Ingredients
Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill it with
hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry the cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and see how easily it comes right out.
Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car. When the windows fog, rub with the eraser!

something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Voila! It unseals easily.
Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's a lot cheaper than
shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.
Goodbye Fruit Flies

apple cider vinegar and 2 drops of dishwashing liquid, mix well.. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever.
