++ Want to keep your car smelling fresh without having to buy those stupid pine tree air freshners that smell like crap? Take a dryer sheet and place it under your seat. April freshness! ++ Super cleaning, sticker removal, stain removal and more! -- Lighter Fluid, the kind you put in your zippo. Its a great solvent, it cleans plastics, melts the glue on stickers and always evaporates away to nothing. It's good at getting tar and oil out of clothes, and its a great degreaser for mechanical stuff. Its also cheap. Brilliant for taking the price tags off gifts, even book covers. ++ If you have a stone countertop with a stain in it, make a paste using bleach and flour. Smear the paste on top of the stain, and then cover it with saran wrap and tape down the edges. Let it sit overnight, and in the morning you should be able to wipe the paste off, which should have absorbed the stain. If it is really bad, you may need to do it a couple of times. If you own a pool, Diametrecious Earth (the white powder stuff you use for the filters) works a lot better than flour. ++ If you feel the need to spit into the sink, run a little water in it the instant before you expectorate. It will all go right down. ++ In an emergency, saliva is a pretty awesome cleaning agent. Good for things like blood in clothes. ++ If you smoke in your car, put one of those silicone absorber packets underneath the ashtray. It will make a big difference in the smell in your car. ++ If you use a kettle to boil water you know it collects a white scum in the interior. Boil some vinegar and it dissolved instantly. ++ If you have a pot or pan with crap stuck to the bottom, put water in the pot and put it on the stove on high heat for a while. If that doesn't work add a splash of alcohol. Then try vinegar. You've pretty much covered all of your bases for solubility, so you can be pretty sure that whatever was down there will dissolve. ++ Vinegar makes for a good Windex substitute. Vinegar will also clean hard water residue much better than commercial cleaners, but for truly streak-free windows, use newspaper instead of towels. ++ If you ever get blueberry juice on anything, immediately pour boiling water over the stain. Don't put anything else on it first, or it'll set permanently. Boiling water, mind. This works like a charm. ++ Bloodstains, I find, come out best if you pour ice cold water through the fabric. Like the berry stains, don't get anything else on it until you can get the ice cold water, or that stain is set. ++ Guitarists: Rub the tips of your fingers on your fretting hand on the sides of your nose, natural grease will get you moving a little faster. Just be sure to clean your strings often. ++ If you have a long-haired pet, don't use finely-toothed combs or brushes to groom it; they pull and
tangle fur. Get an English rake (check Google) instead.
