Great Tips Pippe,

I love the splinter one..I have also used a piece of tape and then pulled it off in the direction I thought the splinter went in...worked for me!

Also, I have used shampoo that I didnt like for my hair to wash clothes before..and I have used conditioner that I didnt like, to use as softener...such a savings instead of throwing them in the trash.

Here is one of my newest tips:

When applying mascara, leave your mascara wand outside of the tube for a minute or so, so it can dry off a little..mascara right out of the tube is so wet, it will clump...how I hate clumpy lashes..I also learned to stay away from waterproof mascara, for I feel they clump more..or at least the ones I tried did.

I have a helpful easy tip for candle wicks. To keep candle wick even use finger nail clippers each time you go to relight them. I found that it also cuts down on your candle burning black, which gives you an uneven scent. This is much easier then trying to use a pair of scissors to cut the wick.:mush"

Want to relieve the itch from a Sunburn...

A couple of years ago while hubby and I were out in the boat fishing...we both ended up with sunburns...oh we looked like 2 bears trying to scratch our backs against a tree...we tried everything,including Aloe Vera...which we soon realized that neither one of us can use...both allergic to it...so I filled the kitchen sink with cold water and 1/2 cup of baking soda...I grabbed a white t-shirt and soaked it for a couple of minutes...had hubby put the t-shirt on while it was wet and I tell you the itching stopped and so did the scratching and so did the burning from the sunburn...It worked great...I always keep a couple of boxes of Baking Soda in the house at all times...

I have highlighted hair and it seems to get so dry in the winter, in desperation,I went to the kitchen, grabbed my olive oil and poured a small amount into my hands...I rubbed it into my hands so it glistened...then I started to run my hands through my DRY hair from the bottom up..paying close attention to the ends.
What can I say..my hair looks MARVELOUS now!

Hugs, Janet:clover:

this more of a cooking tip but when you have a recipe that calls for measuring a sticky substance like honey, corn syrup etc. spray a little pam on your measuring utensil...they syrup will all slide out perfectly not leaving any behind.

Here is anouther tip for the kitchen. When you have done the unthinkable ...like me.... and burned a food to the bottom of your pot and left a nice baked on black mess....squirt dishwasher soap in the pan add a inch or so of water and put on the stove. bring to a boil and all the mess will lift up and be easy to clean. I am famous for doing this by boiling steamed broccoli dry!!!

Super glue
 
If you get super glue on your fingers while gluing something, never ever try to pull it apart...you'll tear your skin!!! Use nail polish remover & it will dissolve the super glue. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.
