Tip of the Day #90: Mailing Fragile Parcels

When mailing a parcel and it is fragile, soak wet newspaper (many sheets) and wrap it round the container of the article. When it dries it will have formed a hard shell that will with stand a great deal of rough treatment. To make the string around a parcel really tight, wet it first. It’ll shrink as it dries.

Tip of the Day #87: Place Keys in Bedroom

RE-POST: Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

Tip of the Day #86: Taking care of Head Lice

If you have school-age children, you know how bad and frequent cases of head lice occur. An effective way of preventing your child from getting them is to add about 10-12 drops of tea tree oil to the bottle of shampoo or squirting shampoo into your palm and adding a few drops directly to it. IF your child DOES come into contact with lice, massaging tea tree or coconut oil into hair every day will help in killing the eggs.
