Five Facts Friday

1. When a recipe calls for sharp cheddar cheese and you haven't any on hand, a dash of pepper, ground mustard and Worcestershire sauce added to a mild cheese will give it a sharp flavor.

2. Corners cut from used envelopes make great bookmarks. They just slip over the page you wish to mark.

3. When purchasing a box of S.O.S. pads, take a pair of scissors and cut each pad into halves. You will get more use out of them thus saving you $$. Extra upside: your scissors will get sharpened.

4. To keep neighborhood dogs and cats off your lawn, grind up 2-3 cloves of garlic and 3-4 hot peppers in the blender. Combine them with a bucket of water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid. Sprinkle around edges of lawn and sidewalk, repeating frequently, especially after it rains.

5. Pour Coke over difficult-to-loosen screws and nuts. It often eats away the rust and corrosion enough to get them loose.

  1. If it has that much corrosive power to eat rust and metal screws, I wonder what it does to your stomach when you drink it? I think I am done drinking Coke, in fact remind me next time I think I want one that I really don't need an ulcer.
