Whacky Uses for Food
I just finished reading a couple of interesting books: "Haley's Hints" authored by Rosemary & Graham Haley [you might have seen this advertised on public TV fundraisers], and Joey Green's "Amazing Kitchen Cures". Though greatly different, they both provide lots of ideas on how to use common foods and household items in unusual and unintended ways to make life easier or cure health ailments. You might wants to check these two books out [I am sure there are others also]to just make life a little more simple and easy.
I know at our house  we make our own cough syrup by mixing together burbon whiskey, honey, and apple cider vineger,  use shaving cream to take spots out of the carpet, [3 keep baking soda in the refrigerator to control odors, use canned milk or vinegar on sunburn, use toothpaste to get rid of a zit, etc, etc. What kind of whacky ways do you use foods, beverages, etc at your house that might be helpful to us all?
