Heres one: a student of american social tried using a hockey cup to protect himself from accidental brushing when dancing and taking lessons. Personally I dont think this is in good taste but a recent lesson in samba rolls is making me wonder.

No More Mosquitoes

Place a dryer sheet in your pocket.  It will keep the mosquitoes away.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

Well your post makes me think of another tip, this one on hoses, vacuum hoses actually.  Is this one more useful to the guys.  What am I thinking, like many guys even know how to run a vacuum.   Grin  Okay ladies this one is for you again.

                                                                                               Flexible vacuum

To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.

Us guys just pull the register off, or move the fridge.   Grin

Boy, you men are tough to please.  Okay here is an outside the home one.

To keep squirrels from eating your plants, sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper.  The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it.

thats the same thing thats in the commercial squirrels repellent - but I wonder if they really burn their mouths and eyes ? 

To keep rabbits out of your vegetable plot, plant a line of onions around it.

There, biological warfare!

                                                                                        Measuring Cups
       
Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water.  Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out.

To create a reverse French manicure, buy the little round self-adhesive "yard sale price tag" stickers. Apply your base coat, the lighter "half moon" nail polish you wish to be visible, and allow to dry completely. Put a 'price tag' over your cuticle so that a fraction of the edge creates your 'half-moon', press down semi-securely. Paint your darker (or lighter, come to think of it) coat over it, remove the sticker, and allow to dry enough for top coat. A Loubie manicure like this, or the traditional style is fun, too, but you have to get a brighter red for the underside.

                                                                                   Foggy Windshield

Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car . When the window s fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!

Much more effective is to turn the air conditioner on and blast the windscreen.  And yes, you can run the heater and air conditioner at the same time....
