Wise Old Wives!

Ok, Those Old Wives knew a few things…

  • For bug bites rub a little vinegar and it will stop the itch
  • Use a fertizier spreader to spread Tide laundry detergent on your grass to get rid of sinch bugs
  • Use Brown paper and an iron to get candle wax out of fabrics and carpet
  • Mint tea is good for your tummy and is decaffinated.
  • Too much sun, rub a lime on the skin, repeat before you go to bed.
  • Cayenne Pepper will make the worst cuts and scrapes stop bleeding, with only a momentary sting.

If you can add anything to this list please put it in comments

I’ll add other brilliant ideas as I find them :0)
