handy Hints

Have you a handy hint to share? I promised one commentator ,last week, that I may call for suggestions...I suspect my readers may surprise us all with a few.
I love handy hints, the real ones and  the false " funny " ones.
They all intrigue me and entertain me.
Today I followed the hint at hoovering the living room carpet with the upholstery attachment rather than with the regular brush roller attachment
And bingo ! 
Five minutes hoovering of a clean carpet!

Half a ton of shit !
Ok not entertaining but very effective!
So what are your handy hints?
They can be as practical as you like....or , like those in Viz, as wonderfully surreal! It's up to you

YOUNG mothers: Calm hysterically crying children in the supermarket by firmly slapping their legs and then tugging them along by the wrist.
PHILANDERERS: Avoid the embarrassment of shouting out the wrong name in bed by having flings only with girls who have the same name as your wife.
FOOTBALLERS: Remember there is plenty of time to get drunk after your playing career has ended.
HORSE whisperers: Speak louder. The animals will hear you more clearly, thus speeding up training times.
FEMALE shop assistants: When a garage mechanic comes to your till, add on a selection of random items they didn't know they needed and charge them s50 labour costs for the transaction.
SINGLE MEN: Fool folk into thinking you've got a girlfriend by standing outside Topshop with loads of bags

  1. When butter is hard in the wintertime, put a lump in a ramekin and stick it in the microwave for a few seconds. Then the butter is nice and soft ready for spreading thinly on bread, toast, scones or even Welsh cakes!

    1. Very timely comment for me - I use only real butter, but hated that it was always hard and, since getting a new refrigerator, seemed to be absorbing odors and never tasted good (never had this happen in my OLD refrigerator...). So I was googling about it, and discovered butter bells! I had never heard of them. I bought a very inexpensive one on eBay, and I'm obsessed! The butter is always fresh and delicious, and since it keeps it at room temp (on the counter or in the pantry, it is always soft and spreadable :)

    5. Do NOT store potatoes in the fridge and they will cook to a nice dry fluff and mash perfectly and easily with a regular masher, a dash of milk and a small knob of butter.

  5. When making pastry or any cakes that need butter rubbing into flour I always use the butter straight from the fridge but grate it into the flour (with a cheese grater). It makes it so quick and easy to rub in evenly and no need to soften the butter.

  6. If you have a woodburner, don't buy glass cleaner. Take a bit of damp kitchen-roll, dip it in some ash and use it to clean the glass. Works brilliantly, and no chemicals.

  7. Grate all your hard cheeses as soon as you buy them and store in a tub in the freezer. If you don't pack the box too tightly the cheese will remain free-flowing and can be used straight from the freezer.

    Especially good for Cheddars and Parmesan style cheeses. But ALL cheese freezes extremely well.

  8. When you have a cut and blood gets on your clothes or linens, use hydrogen peroxide. Just blot the spot with it on a paper towel, soaked Q-tip, or pour it on the spot and blot it off best to blot not rub for big spots pouring it on and let it bubble up is best. Test a spot on the hem etc first to be sure it doesn't change the color. Then launder as usual.

    1. I used to attend a sewing class and the tutor told me if I ever pricked myself and got blood on my sewing I had to get a piece of cotton thread, roll it into a ball and (sorry) spit on it, then dab it onto bloodstain. This only works on your own blood.

    2. Yes, it works. Wood ash cleans the woodburner glass,but must only be wood ash. Rub with damp cloth dipped in the wood ash. The teeth one is make a paste with the ash by adding a little water in a saucer. Some dentists don't recommend due to enamel damage.

    3. Speaking as a former dental hygienist, this kind of horrifies me. It reminds me of when I was in dental hygiene school and we had to go to Terminal Island prison in Los Angeles to work on the women inmates there. One of my friends had to clean Squeaky Fromme's teeth, of Charles Manson fame. Squeaky said she'd been brushing her teeth with Comet, an abrasive kitchen cleanser, to whiten them. My friend was going to correct her, then she thought "Wait a minute, this is a mass murderer I'm dealing with. If she wants to do that, then I'm not going to stop her!"

  12. If you do home canning, lids from peanut butter jars fit on mason jars perfectly. So after you open your canned jam you don't have to mess around with the screw lid anymore. For some reason it's any brand of peanut butter that has a red lid.

    3. Put one teaspoon of biological soap powder in the cup or mug to be cleaned. Top up with boiling water and then leave to stand for a couple of hours. Empty then rinse - your cup will be nice and new and clean. Cleaning by this method makes sure that the glaze is not damaged, wherein if you used bleach it would take some of the glaze off and the cup or mug would tar up more quickly. Pattypan

    4. I always us baking soda, a good spoonful so it is like a paste. A quick rub takes all stains off and you've not introduced anything toxic or tainted into your mug. Baking Soda is great for most jobs where gntle abrasion is called for :)

    Knitting - When knitting the two fronts of a cardigan add the stitches of the bands at the same time. When you've finished the waistband ribbing put these extra stitches on a safety pin to return to later when you're ready to do the bands. Don't forget to include any button-hole in the ribbing. Hope that is easy to understand.

  15. Uh? When people come over for dinner and the house is in less-than-perfect condition, put flowers about, turn the lights down very low and light candles. If there is an unpleasant odor which you have not been able to trace the source of, make those scented candles. Make the drinks strong, the food delicious, and no one will care at all about the house.

    2. Along those lines, if you are late preparing dinner, lay the table first. Cutlery, side plates, drinking glasses and condiments, make your guests or partner a nice strong drink and then retire to the kitchen to start the prep for dinner. It's always worked for me. It just looks like you're totally in control ;-)

    2. I use old wool socks to dust with as well, I also use old tea towels to dust with. I should probably say that the socks are clean when I dust, I don't want people thinking I come home from work and just pull them off, then start dusting.

      I use parchment paper to bake with, no greasing pans or cookie sheets, I place the used paper in the freezer and just keep reusing it until it wears out, the main thing is I don't have to scrub the baking sheets after, clean up is easy.

  36. Instead of those terrifying chemical oven cleaners, make a paste with bicarb and cold water and smear it all over the inside of the oven (not the element!) & door. Leave for a couple of hours, then spray with water and white vinegar mixed 50/50 and tipped into a spray bottle. The vinegar reacts with the bicarb and you can then wipe it out with a cloth and give any really stubborn bits a bit of attention with a scourer. Either wear a rubber glove and use your fingers to apply the paste, or put it on with an old paintbrush.

  38. newspaper to dry the window when you are cleaning it. Works fab. A trick I have used since college *cough a long time ago* either grate carrot and then chop it or blitz it to breadcrumb size. Use half mince beef and half carrot crumb for all things like spag bol, cottage pie. Less calories but most importantly 2 for the price of one out of a packet of mince. the carrot not only enhances the flavour it also takes on the taste of the beef. Better for your wallet and kidneys and covers one of you 5 a day. Instead of wasting huge amount of flour when doing seasoned flour to cover meat, get a jam jar with a metal lid. you will need a 2nd metal lid. first lid, use a nail, bang holes through it to make a bit like a pepper shaker, mix you seasoned flour add to jar. Use lid with holes to dust meat (rather than shaking in a bag or messing up bowls) left over seasoned flour can be left in the jar, and sealed tight with the 2nd lid. use a rubber band to attach the first lid to the jar till you next need it after washing and drying quickly. do not leave it to air dry. When drying herbs, put them inside a pillow case it will catch all the leaves or lovely tasty bits that may fall off. cut cardboard to the shape of the tops of your kitchen cupboards the grease and anything disgusting can them just be added to the compost when you want to add fresh. Grouting tiles in a busy area? Use a squeeze bottle (like for ketchup) with the nozzle to add grout. lay it thick, an use a childs feeding silicon tipped spoon to push it in the gap. the action is squeeze with the one hand and use the spoon with the other to push it in and clean out extra. then it doesnt get all over the shop and walked into places you dont want it. I think that is enough for now.

    2. works for cats too if you hide the tablet in a piece of raw beef, but crush it a little first and leave it in the bit of meat to soften and absorb the meat flavour, about an hour, before giving it to the cat. Put only the "doctored" piece and one other on the plate so the cat eats both then give another undoctored piece as a treat.

  43. After washing a set of bedding sheets, fold the top sheet, fitted sheet (although I'm still useless at that), and one pillow case, then put them all inside the second pillow case. That way they are altogether and you don't have to go looking to find the matching ones.
    Ladies, when shaving your legs, use hair conditioner, not soap. You'll get much smoother results. It can be cheap conditioner, you don't have to splurge on an expensive kind.
    Hard / mineral water build up on your faucets? Put some vinegar in a small plastic bag, put it on the end of your faucet so it is down in the vinegar and use an elastic to hold the bag tight to the tap. Leave it overnight, the mineral deposits will be gone by morning.
    I have smoothies a lot for breakfast. I buy bananas, wait until they are quite ripe, then peel and break them apart in chunks, putting half a banana's worth in little zip-lock bags in the freezer. Frozen banana in a smoothie makes it cold, no need for chopped up ice, and it adds sweetness. I also blend in a handful of baby spinach in my smoothies. You don't taste it and it adds some extra nutrients. -Jenn

    Mix baking soda with coconut oil (half and half) in a jar and use as a facial scrub. I stand in the shower to wash off, but just rinse until the baking soda is gone. The residual oil will keep your skin soft. Use other oils if you prefer, I like coconut oil.

    Make a paste of baking soda and a little water. Use some on a soft rag to remove tarnish from silver. I especially like it on forks and spoons because baking soda is edible.

To get rid of tarnish with no scrubbing whatsoever, simply put a sheet or two of tinfoil in the bottom of a plastic bowl, add a couple of tablespoons of bicarb, then put all your tarnished silverware on top so that they are all touching the foil and then completely cover with boiling water. A quick wipe with a soft cloth after you get them out and they will be sparkly clean again.

  52. I think my Dad had read the Philanderer hint. First girlfriend and 2 of his 3 wives had the same name. But he must have been seriously planning ahead, my Mum, his first wife and he started dating at the age of 12.

  53. My hints are from John Crace’s digested read of Mary Berry’s tips and tricks:

    The kitchen. This is the heart of any home and will normally contain a fridge, a cooker, a sink and some cupboards. When planning a kitchen, try to make sure all these items are in the places you want them.


    Always remember to situate your sink near a water supply. There is nothing more frustrating than turning on a tap and finding nothing coming out of it.

    When buying a sofa, make sure you choose one that fits into your living room. Not all sofas are the same size and it can be hugely disappointing to order one that you have to leave outside on the pavement. To measure a sofa properly, use a measuring tape. For many people, the television is the focal point of the room. Try to choose one that doesn’t get Channel 4. It’s gone downhill dreadfully recently and features programmes with that awful, money-grabbing Paul Hollywood.

    Hats and coats can be hung on hooks in the hallway. If you have small children, it can be useful to situate some hooks at a lower level so that they can reach them. Books can be stored on bookshelves. It’s also useful to have a spare set of keys in case you lose your main set. If you label the spares as “Spare set of keys”, you won’t confuse them with the main set you use in your day-to-day life.
