Random Household Tips

Did you know that you can tell whether an egg is bad or not by shaking it? Shake the egg and if you can feel something swishing around inside, it's no good. If you can't feel anything, you can eat it. I learned this one from Derek, who got it from a chef friend of his.

Comet isn't just for sinks. It works wonders on old linoleum floors.

Petroleum jelly works fabulously as a diaper cream. Thanks for the tip, Mom.

Funny smell in the kitchen? Common culprits in my kitchen are old food in the back corner of the fridge, the sponge, and potatoes that are past their prime.

A little hand soap and water can get out almost any stain if you apply it right away.

Oatmeal and water is my favorite facial scrub. Even better when you add a little brown sugar in with it (yes, it sounds like breakfast, but trust me - it'll make your face feel wonderful).

YES on the sponge... I hate that. Usually it means its time to throw mine away, but I've heard you can microwave it with some lemon juice
