If you fallen into the trap of having a Pintrest account you know how unbelievably AMAZING it is. If you don’t have an account you actually might be doing yourself a favor as it is a HUGE and I mean HUGE time-stealer.
I try to limit my time on Pintrest but I will tell you sometimes it is really hard. As you may or may not know this is a site where you “Pin” ideas, tips, recipes, that you love and want to store them all in one place. Then other people see your pins, pin them to their boards and it is an endless cycle of pinning.
One thing I am always looking for is good tips in cleaning, organizing, or just fun stuff (I have tons pinned).
I am happy to report on some AMAZING TIPS that really work that I just had to share. Of course, I can not FIND the original links on Pintrest…but they are out there I promise.
#1. Cornstarch Removes Oil Stains on furniture, clothes and carpet. My handsome hubby gave me the chance to see if this really works when he ate baked chicken on my slipcovered wingback chair. (Thanks, babe!) Sprinkle cornstarch on the stain, let it sit for a little, then with your nail or a dull butter knife scrap it along the nap of the material and vacuum up. Grease/oil stains are GONE!!! Amazing.
2. Grow your own Spring Onions on your window seal. Buy spring onions at the grocery store, use the green part then place in a vase or glass container and they will GROW!! It regenerates itself. I love having fresh spring onions accessible to me all the time. Because you know this stuff does not last 3 days in the refridge!
#3. The best tip of the week. Place a wooden spoon over a boiling pot of water and it will NOT boil over. I am not kidding this works. My hubby and I had a $1 bet on this…guess who won…ME. Not sure why it works. It just does. You can take that to the bank.
If anyone knows where I saw these ideas originally please send me the link and I will be happy to give them full credit!!! I am not trying to steal these as my own ideas I just want to share with you all awesome tip that work!!!
I am sharing these ideas here.
