Handy Hints


And no! The hint above is not one I'd suggest!
Imagine the hairs in the water from his very fuzzy chest!
A peeled potato rubbed on hands will clean them in a trice.
Much, much easier than chemicals and surely half the price!
Slice bananas into pineapple juice to stop them going brown;
Make sure they're underneath the juice; if you have to, press them down.
Before you bake a meat-loaf place bacon in the tin.
You'll find it easy to remove the loaf, and keep all the juices in.
If a needle won't go through some cloth, run it through your hair.
Then it will slide in easily because of the oil that's there.
When butter is too hard to spread take your peeler; give it a shave.
The shavings easily soften; that's how they behave.

More than run-of-the-mill housework here:

I find running the needle or pin into a cake of soap works great. I to say, the photo is not a good suggestion, like you said, way too much body hair. LOL
