 More Just Good Information

I love hearing from you! Several of you have requested another post about just good information. Being someone who never wants to disappoint ( thank you type A personality, giggle) I sat down with a cup of tea and came up with these. I hope you will find some new and useful information in this post today. Here’s more just good information.






Oops you broke a glass, did you know you can use an extra large cotton ball to pick up the little slivers. The cotton fibers will collect the little slivers of glass you can barely see.



Poison ivy relief can be found in your kitchen. If you wash the affected area with liquid dish soap (within 2 hours of contact) it may prevent the red itchy rash from getting to awful

Spraying the inside of a plastic container with a little nonstick cooking spray can help prevent tomato based sauce stains from discoloring your plastic containers.


Canker sores can get relief from a dab of…milk of magnesia. It doesn’t “heal” it but relieves the discomfort. Dab the canker with a mixture of half and half water and hydrogen peroxide, then dab on the milk of magnesia.
When your little artist has used your wall as easel. Crayon marks can be removed by using a clean cloth with some mayonnaise on it. Then rinse with warm water.

I’ve used this one a few times! If you have a splinter You can use some masking tape to help remove it. Tape over the splinter and gently pull the tape and the splinter out.










Clean your glass vase with rice. I’ve shared plenty of rice tricks with you in the past. But did you know if you add ( uncooked) rice to a stained vase and shake and swirl the rice around the stains will come out. I love this trick. It’s so great for those narrow necked vases. Did you also know if you drop a penny  and a little pinch of sugar into your vase your fresh cut flowers will last a little longer ( changing water regularly can help too)


Using to much fabric softener makes your towel less absorbent and less fluffy too. So no need to over do with the liquid softener when washing towels. A little goes a long way.
