Collection of Useful Tips

Household Remedies
  • Use White vinegar and water to clean glass
  • For pans that have had food burned onto the bottom, apply a capful of ammonia, fill the pan with water and boil for a few minutes, it will soften all of that up so you don't have to throw out the pan.

Dry or Chapped Lips
  • Slather your lips with vaseline overnight to cure dry, chapped lips.

Mosquito Bites
  • To keep mosquitos away, use baby oil, they don't like to put their feet in it
  • To help stop the itch of a mosquito bite, apply toothpaste (not gel) to the area
  • To keep mosquitoes from biting you place a dryer sheet in your pocket
  • For bites, apply hemmoroid cream

Bee Stings/Bug Bites
  • For a bee sting, apply baking soda compresses- the soda soothes the sting and draws out the stinger.
  • Apply sliced raw garlic, which relieves wasp and bee stings; follow with an ice pack
  • A baking soda compress helps a bee sting; if stung by a wasp, apply vinegar to soothe.

  • The only real hiccup cure is one that treats the hiccups for what they really are. Hiccups are caused by the diaphragm spasming. Taking in as much air as possible, makes the lungs expand and push down on the diaphragm. This stretches the diaphragm out to it original position and shape. Hold the breath as long as possible, just don't pass out, and let it out. Voila', no more hiccups. It works every time.

  • For hiccups, try a spoonful of peanut butter

    • Cut a lime in half and rub over forehead and temples.


    • Drink a glass of milk before you go out drinking, and a glass of drink before bed; also eat before you go out.
    • Take 2 advil before going out, 2 before bed.
    • Eat breakfast the next morning with glass of tomato juice if you have nausea


    • To get rid of a wart fast, use nail polish (preferably colorless so it cannot be seen). Wart shoud be gone in a week.
    • Another wart remover is to use duct tape on warts on your feet for 7 days...I just heard that one! Also, I just heard that if you go in your yard and take a dandelion and break it open, dab the milk from the dandelion on the wart

    Sore Throat

    • Gargle salt water for a sore throat


    • If you cannot sleep, eat spaghetti; it relieves tension.
    • Heat up a glass of milk in the microwave and drink

    Ear Infections

    • Use lemon juice in your ear for an ear infection
    • Hydrogen peroxide works for me. Drop a few drops in the ear and lean over to let it sink in ( it feels really cool too). It actually feels like it is working. I do this a few times a day and it gets rid of it quickly!
    • For ear infections, especially swimmers ear, you can clear it up by putting a few drops of rubbing alcohol into your ear and draining it immediately a few times a day. It's better to do this to both ears after a swim to prevent the ear infection completely. I've had two terrible ear infections and I use alcohol every time I swim now. Do this at the first hint of ache or itchiness in your ear.

    Bowel Problems

    • To rid diarrhea, heat a cup of milk in microwave (not to a boil) and drink.
    • Drink lots of water for diarrhea because diarrhea dehydrates you; also, eat rice
    • For cramps or stomach aches, eat a banana. The pain should be gone in about 10 min.

    • Swallow a table spoon of olive oil for constipation
    • Eat Fig for constipation 
    • Another great tip is to take a cup of warm milk and mix a teaspoon of oil or ghee in it
    • This helped me a lot, DRINK AS MUCH WATER AS YOU CAN; and eat an apple, that worked for me!
