Practical Ideas for Problem Solving

Success Motivational Stone

Success Engraved Stones

We decided to run a series of blogs to help solve everyday problems.  You will probably find many of these ideas very useful, so check back often as we continue to address new subjects.  These ideas are as helpful as motivational paperweights.  Today, we will address the usefulness of clear vinegar.

  • Vinegar is great for removing a sticky label without leaving a gooey mess.  Just apply the vinegar until the label is saturated.  It will peel right off.
  • Suppose you cooked something in the kitchen and got distracted.  When you get back to the kitchen, you have a burned mess with an awful smell.  Boil a cup of vinegar with 2 cups of water for about 20 minutes.  The burned smell will be gone.
  • Suppose you are out on the water and got home with a nasty sunburn.  To help with the pain, rub vinegar on the affected area gently with a sterile cotton ball.  You might smell funny, but it is worth it if you hurt less.
  • Vinegar can also help with insect stings, cleaning kitchen pots and greasy hair.  Keep an economy size bottle of clear white vinegar on hand.
