Friday in the Country

Here is the first 'Friday in the Country' post.  There is no rhyme or reason for these posts; just pulling from an array of "Good Ideas" that I've used and saved over my many years of home keeping.  If you would like to share your own with me, you may get published here another Friday.

1.  To sharpen dull scissors, cut through fine sand paper a couple of times .. good as new. 

2.  It’s a good idea to wash and dry your scissors periodically. Very often, your scissors aren't really dull, and just need this simple attention. 

3.  For loose wooden knobs on drawers, dip the screw into clear fingernail polish.  This also works for loose screws in your eyeglasses. Be careful not to get the lacquer on your lenses. 

4.  Do you remember ‘Energine’ Lighter Fluid? The stuff is great for removing label and tape goo from glass jars. It’s really great for getting black marks off your linoleum. Because this method can leave a surface slippery, be very sure to wash thoroughly with soap and water.  FYI, WD-40™ will also do this type of cleaning, IF you can stand the odor.  

Hope you have a great day, whether you live in the country or simply wish you did.
