Amazingly Simple Home Remedies

My friend forwarded me this email and I thought that these tips were too good not to share with the tip-hungry Works-for-Me-Wednesday crowd:
  1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat and presto, the blockage will be almost instantly removed.
  2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.
  3. You can avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat just by using the sink.
  4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use an egg timer.
  5. A mouse trap placed on top of your alarm clock will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.
  6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives. Then you will be afraid to cough.
  7. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with a hammer and you will forget all about the toothache.
  8. Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are: In life, you only need two tools - WD-40 and Duct Tape.
    1. If it doesn't move but should, use the WD-40.
    2. If it should not move and does, use the duct tape.
Some of these tips might not suit you, or your particular style of housekeeping. However--a good belly laugh? That certainly works for me!

Oh, those are funny!! I like the idea of having someone else hold the vegetables while I slice them -- or the nail while I hammer. :D
