Get The Job Done With Less

We are in a small financial crisis here in the United States. Matter of fact I imagine it's bad worldwide. Therefore, as a concerned citizen of this planet, I'm going to offer you, some alternative uses for everyday products.After searching the net ( I need to get a life), I discovered these. I've added my comments after each one.

Cool whip will condition your hair in 15 minutes Add strawberries for a tantalizing desert. Your partner won't be able to not play with your hair.

Sunburn - empty a large jar of Nestea into your bath. Icecubes, Super Model and a straw. What a fanatsy

Burn your tongue? Put sugar on it!  Diabetics get to go into a coma, in which case they no longer care about burned tongue.

Fungus on toenails or fingernails - Vicks vapor rub. Like I don't have a foot oder problem already. This stuff can unclog your nose!

Pam will also remove paint, and grease from your hands! Pam? Is she my Super Model?

To keep goggles and glasses from fogging, coat with Colgate toothpaste. So let me get this straight, no fog, just smeared toothpaste. Like I'm going to see through that.

Make fried chicken golden brown - Add a few drops of yellow food coloring to vegetable oil before frying. The chicken will absorb the food coloring and become a succulent golden brown. That's how KFC does it! Who knew?

Salty Jeans - Add Ѕ cup of salt to a laundry load of blue jeans. Not only will they come out softer, but they will last much longer. Okay, what's a S cup? I know of no woman with a S cup. If she exists, can see walk? Is she nursing Octomom's babies? Where does one get a S cup?

Use the burger flipper as a fly swatter.  Even the Government allows a little insect parts in food. 

Use the hook side of Velcro to pull off pesky balls. Beware them pesky balls ladies. I guess a knee to the groin just doesn't cut it anymore!

There you go readers. Rush right out and try these out. Get back to me on how they work out. Especially interested in stopping pesky balls. I need to know if I should fear a woman with Velcro or not.

Are You Going To Try Any Of This?
