Who doesn’t need a few time saving, money saving, cool ideas for anyone!

Posted for Mary Ricksen:

I’ll bet there’s one here for any of us!

1

The simplest way to slice a bunch of cherry tomatoes is to sandwich them between two plastic lids and run a long knife through all of them at once!

Keep brown sugar soft by storing with a couple of marshmallows.100

Install a regular coat rack low down the wall to store shoes safely off the floor.

2

Create a thrifty watering can by puncturing holes in the top of a used milk bottle.

15

GOOD ONE

Remove pet hair from furniture and carpets with a squeegee.

18

Flip a toaster on its side to make grill cheese.

21

INGENIOUS!!

Water straight from the tap becomes cloudy when frozen.

24

To make ice cubes crystal clear, allow a kettle of boiled water to cool slightly

and use this to fill your ice cube trays.

Use a large muffin tin to cook stuffed peppers in the oven

– it will help keep them upright.

25

To prevent potatoes budding, add an apple in the bag.

27

REALLY?

Add half a teaspoon of baking soda to the water when hard-boiling eggs

to make the shells incredibly easy to peel off.

29

WD-40 can be used to remove crayon marks from any surface!

33

Cool!

To tell if eggs are fresh, immerse them in a bowl of water.

Fresh eggs will lie on the bottom, while stale eggs will float to the surface.

41

To clean a wooden chopping board, sprinkle on a handful of Kosher salt

and rub with half a lemon.

46

Rinse with clean water and dry to ensure it is clean and germ-free.

Use ice-cubes to lift out indentations made by furniture on your carpets.

48

Prevent soil from escaping through the holes in the base

of flowerpots by lining with large coffee filters.

49

To sharpen scissors, simply cut through sandpaper.

56

ANOTHER GOOD ONE

Use rubber bands to help open a jar easily: place one around the jar lid and another around the middle of the glass. The rubber provides friction to prevent your hands from slipping.

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

59

Store bed sheets inside their pillowcases for easy storage and access.

62

Drop a couple of denture cleaning tablets into the toilet bowl at night to clean off stubborn stains.

64

Use cupcake cases to cover drinks glasses in the summer and prevent flies from dropping in.

69

GOOD ONE

This has to be the simplest way to open those annoying blister packs!

75

TERRIFIC

Use a cut potato to easily remove a broken light bulb.

77

Use chalk to remove grease stains from clothes.

79

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.

FROZEN GRAPES ARE GREAT EVEN WITHOUT THE WINE

80

Use a rubber band to rescue a stripped screw.

91

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