Have you ever wondered what else you may be able to do with ordinary things you already have around your home? I hate to throw away something for fear I could of used it down the road. Can we say 'pack rat'?
This morning I came across a site that I found a lot of useful information on Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things. I easily spent 30 minutes looking through the lists and I love it! Its on the Reader's Digest site.
The list for all the different uses for bleach gave me a few ideas. Bleach is something almost all of us have, right? I never knew that to keep freshly cut flowers fresh longer, just add 1/4 teaspoon of bleach to quart of water to the vase. Another recipe called for 3 drops of bleach and 1 teaspoon of water to a quart of water. this will keep the water from getting cloudy and inhibit the growth of bacteria.
The list goes on and on. I hope you find it usesful too!
