It all started when I posted this picture of my Sweet Annie, a while back.
I got an email from my sister Joan saying.....dump the Sweet Annie out of that red pitcher, I want it! She said she had some things for me.
She said are these prim enough for you?
Does she Know me or what? I also gave her another red and white pitcher I had.
Speaking of my Sister....here are some tips she sent me in an email:
*Eliminate ear mites. All it takes is a few drops of Wesson Corn Oil in
your cat's ear... massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat
daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the mites, and
*Kills fleas instantly... Dawn Dish washing Liquid does the trick. Add a few
drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well to
avoid skin irritations. Good-bye fleas.
*Did you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache
pain almost immediately-without the unpleasant side effects caused by
traditional pain relievers?
*Did you know that Colgate Toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns?
*Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with
mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids
peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.
*Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup
of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a
massage oil for instant relief for aching muscles.
*Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1
tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.
*Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets
in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms.
Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost
instantly-even though the product was never been advertised for this use.
*Honey remedy for skin blemishes... cover the blemish with a dab of honey
and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin
sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.
*Listerine therapy for toenail fungus: Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus
by soaking your toes in Listerine Mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic
leaves your toenails looking healthy again.
*Easy eyeglass protection... to prevent the screws in eyeglasses from
loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear Nail Polish to
the threads of the screws before tightening them.
*Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer... if menacing wasps,
hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the
insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground
*Smart splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the
splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter
sticks to the dried glue.
*Hunt's Tomato Paste boil cure... cover the boil with Hunt's Tomato Paste
as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the
boil to a head.
*Balm for broken blisters... to disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few
drops of Listerine, a powerful antiseptic.
*Vinegar to heal bruises... soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply
it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds
up the healing process.
*Quaker Oats for fast pain relief... it's not for breakfast anymore! Mix 2
cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave
for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for
soothing relief from arthritis pain.
Thanks Sister Joan!
