    My posts recently have concentrated on my wisdom tooth extraction, this has led to an interesting discovery.
    I was carrying a flask of hot salty water at work to rinse out and stop infection. But I left my half empty flask in the van overnight, when I opened it up this morning I was amazed it hasn't been so clean since it was new, shiny stainless steel.
    So salt dissolves old tea ?

    Here's something I've found useful. When walking in very cold weather and using a Sigg water bottle, it's possible to fill it with hot water, stuff it into a sock and use it as a hot water bottle. Lovely

    Do your tights get tangled when you hang them on the washing line to dry? If so, simply pop a ten pence piece into the toe of each leg to weight them down! Hey presto!














    Does anybody else remember Viz 'top-tips' with fondness? Oh, hang on, maybe the tights one was a Take a Break tip. I always used to get them muddled.

    A teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda in a flask, fill up with boiling water, will clean out the stains and leave it like new.

    A word of warning - take care, it fizzes up for a few seconds!

    Wrap a bit of gaffer tape sticky side out around your hand and rub your fleece up the right way, and all your bobbling will disappear.
    Works on most fabrics, powerstretch, wovens etc )

    If somebody is choking on an ice cube, simply pour boiling water down their throat and, hey presto, the blockage is instantly removed!

    Ladies just buy the first pair of shoes you try on, it saves dragging hubby around 108 shops just to return 6 hrs later

    Don't waste money buying expensive binoculars. Simply stand closer to the object you wish to view

    And my all-time favourite:

    Housewives. When nipping out to the shops, remember to carry a stiff broom in the boot of your car. Use it to sweep the broken glass to the side of the road every time you have a minor accident.



    ;-)

    How come there are so many Darrens, then? When I were a lass there were a lot of Tims. Is Darren the new Tim?
