    To clean combs soak them in hot water containing a spoon of washing soda and allow them to soak for 5 minutes the dirt gets automatically removed. Now wash the comb in clean water and dry them.

    SOME GREAT TIPS:






    Bed Sheets

    After drying my sheets, put both sheets and one pillowcase in the other
    pillow case. Fold neatly in a square. Next time you change sheets, you
    just take the one pillow case and all the sheets and pillow case are
    inside. No need to look for matches.




    Clean Your Shower Glass
    To clean the glass in your shower easily, apply lemon juice to the glass
    with a sponge. Then, take newspaper and wipe the lemon juice off the
    glass. It will be clean and sparkle with no scrubbing!




    Reheat Pizza
    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.




    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 it up mixing
    thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw
    bag away when done easy clean up.




    Expanding Frosting
    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 less 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 and help it reheat faster.




    Newspaper Weeds-Away
    Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet
    newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go, cover with
    mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening
    plastic, they will not get through wet newspapers.




    Broken Glass
    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.




    Squirrel 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.




    New Bike
    If you purchase a new bike for your child, place their picture inside the
    handle bar before placing the grips on. If the bike is stolen and later
    recovered, remove the grip and there is your proof of who owns the bike.




    Flexible Vacuum
    To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty
    paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. 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 and -- voila --
    static is gone.




    Measuring Cups
    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 watch how easily it comes right out.




    Foggy Windshield?
    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! Works
    better than a cloth!




    Reopening Envelope
    If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something
    inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or
    two. Voila! It unseals easily.






    Hair Conditioner

    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.




    Good-Bye Fruit Flies
    To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass fill it 1/2" with Apple
    Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dishwashing liquid, mix well. You will find
    those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!




    Get Rid Of Ants
    Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it
    "home," and can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so,especially
    if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small
    children being harmed!




    Take Baby Powder To The Beach
    Keep a small bottle of baby powder in your beach bag. When you're ready to
    leave the beach sprinkle yourself and kids with the powder and the sand
    will slide right off your skin .
