Did you know Wishbone adds a new Tip of the Day to our website almost daily? He sure does! He's a busy guy that Wishbone. Here are a few of his very favorite tips:
1. A thermos, lunchbox, or even a travel mug that is beginning to smell unpleasant can be cleaned by pouring 1/4 cup salt into it and close it up for the night. In the morning, rinse and wipe clean, this should make it smell fresh again.
2. Leaving an open box of baking soda inside any cupboard, linen closet, camper cabinet or anywhere that doesn’t get used regularly will keep the contents fresh and odor free.
3. Scuff marks on linoleum can usually be removed by rubbing the spot with white toothpaste and a dry cloth.
4. For stinky microwaves, put two tablespoons of vanilla in a glass bowl, heat for 30 seconds, then let it sit inside the microwave for a few hours.
5. Remove a stripped screw by laying a rubber band over the stripped screw’s head to give your drill (or screwdriver) enough traction to remove it.
