Repairing scratched wood: Mix a thick paste of olive oil and salt and rub onto the wood - leave it for about 30 minutes. The salt draws out the moisture and the oil feeds the wood. Used this many, many times!
Our electric bill rose to $430 two years ago and a simple A/C cleaning lowered it to $150. Totally re-pinning this. Another pinner said: "My husband owned his own A/C business for a long time and he said everything on here is the PROPER way to do this. Doing this will help the unit run more efficiently and you save $ by not paying the A/C company!"
Awesome Cleaning Slime 1 tablespoons of white (Elmers) glue. Add about 1 spoon full of water. Mix. Then in another cup put 2 tablespoons of borax and 2 tablespoons of water. Pour the glue solution and the borax solution together and you get slime. Add some food color to the glue first if you want a cool color. Use mold of your choice...shallow plastic container, etc. Can be re-used many times. When it gets filled with the gunk you have been cleaning, throw it out and make some more!!
