  1. 1. Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

  2. 2. Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!

  3. 3. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

  4. 4. Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef. It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.

  5. 5. To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then beat them up.

  6. 6. For a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed. Melt Andes mints in double broiler and pour over warm brownies. Let set for a wonderful minty frosting.

  7. 7. Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.

  8. 8. Leftover snickers bars from Halloween make a delicious dessert. Simply chop them up with the food chopper. Peel, core and slice a few apples. Place them in a baking dish and sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the apples. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream.

  9. 9. Reheat Pizza Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.

  10. 10. Easy Deviled Eggs Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.

  11. 11. Expanding Frosting When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.

  12. 12. Reheating refrigerated bread To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

  13. 13. Newspaper weeds away Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go. Cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers.

  14. 14. Broken Glass Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily.

  15. 15. No More Mosquitoes Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.

  16. 16. Squirrel Away! To keep squirrels from eating your plants, sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it.

  17. 17. Flexible vacuum To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.

  18. 18. Reducing Static Cling Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and ... guess what! ... static is gone.

  19. 19. Measuring Cups Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out. (Or spray the measuring cup or spoon with Pam before using)

  20. 20. Foggy Windshield? Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car When the windows fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!

  21. 20. shaving cream can leaving rust ring? apply a few coats of nail polish to the bottom ring of the can.. no more rust rings!

  22. 22. Conditioner Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.

  23. 23. Goodbye Fruit Flies To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2 way with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid ( do NOT add any more than 2 drops) ; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!

  24. 24. Get Rid of Ants Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!

  25. 25. Dryer Filter Even if you are very diligent about cleaning the lint filter in your dryer it still may be causing you a problem. If you use dryer sheets a waxy build up could be accumulating on the filter causing your dryer to over heat. The solution to this is to clean your filter with with a toothbrush and hot soapy water every 6 months.

  26. To help get rid of fruit flies.. 1) grab an empty 16oz., 1 liter or 2 liter bottle. 2) cut the top off about a few inches below the nozzle. 3) invert what u just cut off. 4) tape all edges with clear tape so there are no holes. 5) pour a few inches of apple cider vinegar in bottom. 6) set on counter where fruit flies are seen most. The fruit flies love apple cider vinegar and will be drawn to it, get inside bottle and be trapped. Just toss when done.

  27. TO GET DRIED UP GREASE SPLATTER OFF ENAMEL: in a bowl place 1 cup baking soda. Pour peroxide(the kind u use for cuts) a little at a time into baking soda until it forms a paste. (Stirring with additions) slather paste onto grease spots and using a rougher rag or a softer scrubby gently rub the area and it comes right off with minimal scrubbing. ( i got a mixer that was covered in it, it cleaned the entire machine in under 10 min. And it was bad! Now it looks brand new! Also works for some tub and sink stains too)
