8 Interesting Uses of Everyday Things!

As busy of a week this is going to be at work, I literally didn’t have anything to do almost all day today (we were waiting on a few reports to finish running on the servers).

And having nothing to do I was randomly surfing around a few sites to catch up on some reading – anything interesting.

Now I landed on this blog which had a list of interesting uses of everyday items and chances are that you’ve probably never heard of em!

Here are a few of them which you may find useful :)

  • Get a Shine with Banana Peels: If you are not eating bananas, you should be. In addition to the health benefits of the fruit itself, its skin is a built in shoe shine kit. A banana peel can shine your leather furniture and shoes. Just remove the stringy matter from inside and rub the inside of the peel on your shoes. Apparently: While you’re removing the stringy bits, you can dry them and “smoke” them as they contain enzymes which give a high when smoked. Don’t take my word for this, I haven’t done it (well yet LOL!) – A friend of mine at work replied back with this “tip” when I sent her the email of the other ones :D
  • Remove price tag with peanut butter: Have you felt exasperated when you purchased a gift for a friend and before gift-wrapping, you tried to remove the price tag with no avail? Apply some peanut butter on the tag and rub it gently. You’ll be happy to see the price tag and its sticky residue gone.
  • Deodorise the refrigerator: Is your refrigerator smelly despite the thorough cleaning and defrosting? Dampen a cotton ball with vanilla extract and leave on the shelf. After few hours, you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you open your refrigerator.
  • Control your dandruff with baking soda: Do you feel low self-esteem due to dandruff that scares you every time you are on a date or other social gatherings? Well, create some homemade baking soda shampoo. Use this solution every time you shower and after a dry spell, you’ll find your hair free of flakes and softer.
  • Deodorise your garbage disposal: Does your garbage disposal smell yucky? Pour 1/2 cup of salt into the bottom of the disposal and rinse it with warm water. The smell will go away quickly. Add a little lemon if you want to freshen things up even more.
  • Remove car dents: Before paying a good bit to a body shop to fix the dents on your car, wet a plunger, push it over the dent and pull it out sharply. It may remove the dents at free of charge.
  • Streak free glass with a newspaper: Before pitching old newspapers into the recycling bin, try cleaning your glass windows with glass cleaner or warm water and a piece of newspaper. You’ll see an absolutely streak-free glass surface as a result.
  • Beer Hair Product: Want to keep your hair style in place but don’t want to buy hair spray/moose/etc.? Just comb a few tablespoons or so of beer into your hair and style away. It’ll stay put.

All about saying the right thing ;)

A friend of mine forwarded this email this arvo. I’m sure you’ll have a good laugh and gain some “insight” (especially if you’re married) on saying the right thing ;)

Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after the night at a business
function. He forces himself to open his eyes and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table. And, next to them, a single red rose!

Jack sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins and cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror and notices a note on the table:

“Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping – Love you!”

He stumbles to the kitchen and sure enough, there is hot breakfast and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table. Jack asks, “Son, what happened last night?”

Well, you came home after 3 am, drunk out of your mind. You broke the coffee table, puked in the hallway and got that black eye when you ran into the door.”

So, why is everything in such perfect order, so clean, I have a rose and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?”

His son replies, “Oh, THAT! Mom dragged you to the bedroom and when she tried to take your pants off, you screamed, “Leave me alone, bitch, I’m married!”.

I want to blow up my school!

When I was in India a few months ago, a friend of mine transferred this mp3 file on my phone via her bluetooth. I thought I’ll hear it when I get home or something and conveniently forgot about it.

Recently I was backing up my files from the phone to the computer and noticed this file.

I was completely unaware of the contents until I played it for the first time.

This was by far the funniest and the cutest prank call I’ve ever heard – it’s about this little girl called Becky from Dublin, Ireland, who’s calling up a demolition company, trying to convince them to blow up her school.

You’ve gotta hear this – believe me you’re gonna have a good laugh and you’d want to keep listening to it over and over again :)
